Cheetos, Raisinets, Ranch Powder, Or Cc
0

15 posts in this topic

Got glutened during the superbowl :( These are my suspects at the moment:

Cheetos (regular flavor)

Raisinets

Ranch dip (hidden valley powder, added to sour cream)

CC from the pretzels on the other side of the room (but everyone else was eating them along with the safe food)

I thought all the items above (minus the pretzels) were gluten-free. Wrong? Also maybe suspecting soy/dairy overload...still have yet to rule out those in my diet. Do they cause similar reactions?

Not sure about your suspect list, but I know dairy for me gives me small tummy aches if I eat to much still, if I limit it to a time or two a week it doesn't seem to bother me, but that third time is the kicker (lol pun intended)

I would start with the posibility that its a CC issue with prezels and any other food as gluten eater eats a handful of nasty stuff then comes over and eats a handful of gluten-free stuff.... recipe for disaster if you ask me!

All my "snacks" at my tiny SB party were gluten-free, but then again it was 4 adults and 2 kids so wasn't much of a gathering.

My thoughts exactly. Although, have you ruled out nightshades yet? I'd not be surprised if there's some sort of tomato or pepper (black pepper is ok) in the ranch powder.

My best guess would be the CC issue and or the Cheetos. Leaning strongly toward CC though.

I am thinking CC as well. Hidden Valley if I am not mistaken is a Kraft company and they are good about labeling. Cheetos were ok, other members on here use them as chicken coating.

I am not sure about Raisinettes but the choc. covered raisins we sell at our store do have an allergy warning may contain wheat so I steer clear.

Hi Sweetfudge -

Clan Thompson's Smartlist states that Hidden Valley won't say that the powdered ranch mix (which my family loves as a breading on chicken!) is gluten-free because of the possibility of CC. We do use it with no problems...but just wanted to let you know.

Hope you are feeling better!

I'm agreeing with everyone in thinking it was probably CC. Although it could havve been a dairy overload as well. Not positive. Almost back to normal now :)

Chicken coating? This sounds intriguing!

It's wonderful! :D If you decide it wasn't from the mix, here is the recipe:

Original Ranch Crispy Chicken

1 packet (1 oz.) Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing Mix

1/4 cup cornflake crumbs (I've always just used whatever gluten-free bread crumbs I have)

6-8 pieces of chicken, with skin and bone (we use legs & thighs and I do remove the skin)

Combine dressing mix and crumbs in a large plastic bag. Add chicken and toss to coat. Bake on ungreased baking pan at 375 for 50 minutes.

Makes 4 - 6 servings

My family just eats this up and I like it because it takes no time to make.

I cannot eat Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix, with or without dairy without getting D! I think it has to do with the MSG in it, or Gluten issues. I can't use ANY dip mix... I have to make my own.

When I email Hidden Valley(2 months ago), they varified that the orginal ranch mix was gluten-free...some of teh other varieties were not. I eat it often.

I also eat Cheetos and raisinets(I don't believe there is an allergy warning on them).

My guess is that you had CC issues. With everyone in and out of teh bowls ect that woudl be a definete possiblity.

What about the sour cream? I was at a celiac friend's house a few weeks ago, and she was making dip, and mentioned something about watching out for a certain brand of sour cream because they recently added gluten (probably in the form of MFS) I didn't pay much attention because I'm mostly dairy-free, but it's something to look into. She did say that Daisy sour cream was gluten-free. I just don't remember the unsafe brand.

mine was walmart brand, and being at work right now, i'm not positive, but i'm 99% sure it says gluten free on there.

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      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,
