Any Reactions To Caramel Color?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hey there!

Well, for TWO months I have not been feeling well. About two weeks or so ago I came on here to find that after being gluten free for awhile we can develop other intolerances :blink: So, I began paying close attention to what I ate and drank and my reactions to each.

So far I am certain that I can no longer tolerate dairy so I have eliminated it from my diet. I felt a little better this week but I have noticed that items with caramel coloring are bothering me.

I made a post here this summer asking if anyone was bothered by fountain cokes. I have known for awhile they were bothering me, as well as the can coke. BUT I just did not want to believe it. Now that I am intolerant of dairy I am noticing it more.

I have done some google research :P and found that milk derivatives can be found possibly in caramel coloring.

I bought a dairy free, gluten-free, soy free, corn free, nut free, oat free, etc. granola cereal and twice i have had a reaction to it. I read on the ingredient label this morning that it has caramel color in it.

Does anyone else have a reaction to caramel coloring? I'm not saying this is my problem. It's just a part of my journey to figure out what things are bothering me :rolleyes:

Hey Ali,

Yes, it is often that people discover that dairy is hard for them as well as gluten free. But, after you are healed for a while, it's possible to add dairy back in your diet without issues. (it's healing and villi issues).

I do not have a problem with caramel color but I do know that other here do. Perhaps it may be similar to dairy. I don't know about the caramel color/dairy connection. The longer you are healed the easier it is to consume these things that are giving you problems now.

Hi,

I went to the celiac lecture at Rush Hospital in Chicago this week and they said Carmel color made in the US is usuallly okay, but made outside the US can have gluten in it (example: vanilla). The same case is for citric acid.

I react to it. I know that coca cola products are gluten free. I knew there was a reason I always drank Coke!

Caramel? I have wondered in the past about it myself. There seems to be a few different types 150a, 150b, 150c and 150d and I presume they are all processed differently. I read everywhere that they are gluten free. But then I have read on some items of food in New Zealand that the 150c, (it was in ice-cream) is derived from wheat. I know I can tolerate 150d which coke has in it over here, and 150a, but I am a bit sceptical of 150c, and if it says from wheat, I will avoid it forever.

I am fine with the caramel coloring, although I don't drink that much coke and soda's. I do know there are others on this board that have some reactions to the coloring. I guess it varies person to person.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Hi. Thanks for the reply. I read "wheat" on the packaging of the regular / plain M&Ms package. Not on the mini's package. I've never seen a package of mini-M&Ms. I've only seen them as ice cream toppings. I'll buy a pack and photograph what I read. Maybe this would be helpful? Thanks again, Olivia 
    • how long does it take to show signs of being glutened?
      My two year old son has been diagnosed with celiac for almost three months. So far, I think we have done well keeping him completely gluten free. Our biggest worry is cross contamination because he is so young and constantly putting his hands in his mouth. My question is, how long does it take to show signs that he was glutened? He complained of a stomachache yesterday before bed (I wasn't sure at the time if it was just a bedtime stalling technique) and also had two very messy diapers today. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out if he could have gotten glutened somehow, or maybe it's just a normal stomach issue for any kid. It would help if I knew the average time it took for symptoms to show up after someone has been glutened. Thanks!
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
