Spaghetti Sauce Settles It
0

18 posts in this topic

After eating gluten-free rice noodles last night with the most delicious tomato sauce on the planet and getting sick, I was confused as ever. Sick? Over spaghetti? :o

I looked at the ingredients of the tomato sauce. Sure enough: soybean oil. I guess the dilemma over whether it's soy that makes me sick in addition to casein is solved, but I just want to cry. I feel like there's so many things I can't eat that it's just ridculous. I'm really depressed and frustrated. :(

But *hopefully* if I go soy-, dairy- and gluten-free, I'll feel better. I just hope.

Just thinking about it now and that also could explain why I sometimes react to potato chips -- fried in soybean oil.

I sympathize. When I realized I reacted to the oil, it seemed to take a lot of possible foods out of the equation. I'm a vegetarian and my favorite local veggie restaurant uses soybean oil exclusively. They only have one entree that can be made without soy, it seems, and it isn't nearly as good as any of the many other items I've had over the years.

I essentially go to restaurants with cuisines that believe in olive oil and look at me with an offended expression if I ask what is soy free.

What brand of sauce was it? I have this problem too, I always feel gassy, bloated and sick after eating rice pasta and sauce, and its usually because I can't find any sauces that dont use soybean oil! Bertolli sauces actually use olive oil instead of soybean oil, which would make sense, helloooo Italian!! A few Classico ones are also soy-free, as well as one from Whole Foods 365 brand-I believe the Roasted Red Pepper ones. I LOVE the Prego Meat one, but alas it gives me a stomachache : (

The spaghetti sauce is actually a department store brand -- Wegmans. It just has this most delicious taste that I've never had in a spaghetti sauce. I'm sure I can find some soy-free substitutes, but this one just really stinks because it's soooooooo good.

OK, are there any potato chips that are gluten-free, casein-free and soy-free? Lay's has those sunflower chips. Are those OK? I'm just looking for a new late afternoon snack other than fruit, which I eat for breakfast. I've also been using potato chips when we're out and have to grab a quick bite to eat for Thomas. It makes it so much easier to pass up on french fries.

Also, what oil would you use at home for frying? Vegetable oil has soy in it, right? Peanut oil?

I don't eat chips or fry things. My reaction to high fat foods is kinda nasty sometimes. What you have to do is read labels. Soy is a major allergen and so has to be listed on food labels if it is present. If it is in chips or a particular oil, it would say.

For snacks beyond fruit, I use popcorn (microwaved without oil), Larabars, or Glutino breakfast bars. Sometimes if I'm really hungry I will nuke a potato & put some refried beans, bean dip, or salsa on top. I used to use corn thins and spread them with a little hummus or something. But I found those things to be too addictive to keep around the house.

Hi!

I love the Lays chips, I eat them whenever I find myself needing a carb b/c I am sick of eating salads all the time or if I am on the go. They run a close second to my all time favorite Cape Cod Potato Chips-I am a native Cape Codder! Do you like corn chips? I always have a bag of tostitos or comprable corn chip on hand to munch on too.

For frying, do you mean making fried foods?? Can't say I fry a lot at all, though recently my sisters boyfriend who is a chef made me fried scallops with rice flour and corn starch. Soo Good.

I had the same reaction I thought to soy but it ended up being the oil only. Lays staxx are made with sunflower oil and they are gluten free.

Another good snack is Ener-g caramel apple bars, they are really good.

You could use peanut oil or coconut oil. Coconut oil is expensive but it has health benefits to it.

I've been using unrefined coconut oil for everything lately! It's very good, and it doesn't always taste sweet, just depends on what you are using it for/with.

I used to only use Classico sauces, until I stopped soy too! There are a few that are soy free, and I usually get those, they're made with olive oil.

I like to have a rice cake with fresh ground peanut butter for an afternoon snack. Not quite chips, but still crunchy. Sometimes I'll put a little jelly on it too, and it's kinda a mini pbj!

Woah, wait a minute. Diet Mountain Dew lists brominated vegetable oil as an ingredient. Does that mean soy? Pepsi does not list it as an allergen on its Web site.

If they included soy, it would have to be listed on the label because of the federal labeling law for major allergens.

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      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.
