Erewhon Brown Rice Cream
0

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any reactions from Erewhon Brown Rice Cream or Lundberg's Lime chips (not sure of the correct name of this... but if you've eaten them you would know what I'm talking about)

those are the only new things I ate yesterday - and I'm breaking out and itching so bad right now... I have DH - it's a strong reaction - more than a "trace" of gluten that I've experienced from other products...

the Lundberg's are labeled gluten free (i've eaten two other flavors and had no problems) and I took a chance on the Rice Cream - but I looked it up afterwards (yes, afterwards... ) But they say it's gluten free all over the internet.

I didn't eat anything else yesterday that could have caused this... eggs, grapes, roast, potatoes and broccoli - that's it along with the chips and the brown rice cream.

grumbling (and itching) in NC

Hi Debbie,

Both foods you mentioned are gluten-free but made on shared equipment or in shared facilities with gluten. Lundberg's products are mostly made in a gluten-free facility--except the chips and some of the rice mixes.

I called on the hot cereal myself recently, and was told it was not made on dedicated lines.

Some Celiacs are more sensitive than others, and will react to products made on shared lines.

There was a thread here a while back about Lundbergs chips. They have made many of us sick!

I've not had any problems with the sea salt flavor - that's all I usually buy and my daughter (age 25) - who is celiac as well - finished off the bag of lime flavored and hasn't mentioned any problems

I think I figured out since then that it may not have been the food... I'm a smoker - my husband is very country and wanted to try to roll his own cigarettes... I smoked one of his rolled smokes over the weekend and didn't even stop to think about the possibilities of gluten. Well come to find out the brand of papers he used WERE NOT gluten-free - Honestly that is probably what got me - thank you for all your help - and I know.. I need to quit smoking - it's coming soon.

I had a dh flare on a day I ate the Erewhon rice crispy cereal and wondered if it was the iodide in the sea salt used in the product. I am new and learning.

Do you have the name of the papers? I know a few folks round here who roll their own, and I believe one of them was supposed to be gluten-free. Might as well pass that on to him! :-)

This is an old thread. The original poster has not been on this board in well over a year. Information may be out of date.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
