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.

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
