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.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening

      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.
