Sweet Baby Ray's Bbq Sauce
0

22 posts in this topic

Hi. I'm new around here and could use some help. I understand that Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauces are gluten free, but when I eat it, I get a reaction like I just ate gluten. Has anyone else had this experience and might have an idea what other ingredient might be causing the reaction? As of now, I've only been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, no other food or additive allergies or sensitivities.

Thanks!

There is nothing that yells "gluten" and it is well used among members here. There are some corn derived ingredients though.

I have contacted Sweet Baby Ray's by phone, and was assured it was gluten-free. I have personally eaten it many times with no ill effects, and I'm highly sensitive.

All that said, it may be that you are sensitive to one of the ingredients in the sauce, or it just doesn't agree with you. I've been at this long enough to think that anyone can be sensitive to just about anything :)

Thanks everyone. I'll have to do some more research into this problem.

ME too!!1 That is actually why I am on the site today. I have eaten it 3 times and been sick sick sick all the next days....

Suspicious. I emailed the company. I am very sensitive to gluten. Do not know of any other food intolerances. Including corn..I eat often. What is the UPC code on yours? Maybe we have a "bad or contaminated run"

Original BBQ Sauce: 013409451328 (my UPC) 340 7A is the code on the bottle neck in red. Does anyone have this and NOT reacting?

I am also a regular user of Sweet Baby Ray's and haven't had any problems with it. I am also very sensitive to any cc or traces of gluten. Possibly you should check into other intollerances?? Maybe the culprit was what you were putting the sauce on? Just a couple of ideas.

We've had no problems here either. You can always try Kraft BBQ Sauce. I'm not sure if all their flavors are gluten-free but you can just read the label. They are a company that does not hide the gluten

Thanks. I will not be using it again. I do not think it would be the other things that I ate..... I had chicken (baked in the oven with only SBR sauce) and homemade mashed potatoes. I only ate about 4-6 bites as I wasnt too hungry.

I REALLY think it is the sauce.....just would love to know what ingrediant it is. OOOOO to have a crystal ball :)

I love the stuff..but had to give it up. Do you have other intolerances to things that may seem gluten like? I had to give it up because I just decided that something in it was giving me a reaction..but not gluten related.

I want to say that just like me..something in it doesn't agree with you..but yours sounds like gluten symptoms.

I was so thrilled to find out this product was gluten free because it's the only bbq sauce i use..but something in it is still affecting my other stuff.

Like you, I was so excited to learn it was gluten-free and used it over ribs in the slow cooker two times. Subtle reactions both times, so I've stopped using it for a few months. Hmm.

If anyone is Allergic to the Pea family like me, then you also might get a reaction from this product like I do! Tamarind is the last ingredient listed on the product label and Tamarind is a sticky brown acidic pulp from the pod of a tree in the pea family! That's why I can't have it.....I tried it a couple of years ago, then learned what Tamarind was after I had a horrible reaction to the product. I'm allergic to Peas and beans and especially anaphylatic to Soy in any form! No beans or bean flours, no peas, no lima beans, no anything in the bean or pea family for me, unfortunately! I do miss bbq! Gluten free just isn't enough for me.

No reaction here and my non gluten-free family loves that I can use a "regular" brand. I didn't even get sick eating at his restaurant. It's in Woodale, IL by the train depot.

Was the pan you baked in free from CC? Do you just use that pan for chicken? Have you had it since before you went gluten free? Metal pans and non stick coated pans can harbor enough gluten to cause CC.

I've used this sauce in the past and never had a gluten reaction. I did however subsequently become intolerant of nightshades, and tomato of course is a big component of most all BBQ sauces. Add mashed potatoes to that meal and there's a double dose of nightshades which would send me into agony all night.

Thanks. I will not be using it again. I do not think it would be the other things that I ate..... I had chicken (baked in the oven with only SBR sauce) and homemade mashed potatoes. I only ate about 4-6 bites as I wasnt too hungry.

I haven't read the ingredients to sweet baby ray's recently, but I bet there is some sort of sweetener in it and I think that can be hard on the healing gut as well. Maybe that gave you a reaction?

I think it has trace amounts of gluten, because I too had a reaction, foggy headedness, sudden onset flatulence 10 mins. after ingesting, etc. I will avoid going forward.

I didn't know Sweet Baby Ray's was gluten-free! May try it again.

We use Cookies BBQ sauce since it is gluten-free (says so on the label), and hubby has not reacted to it.

Please note that you are replying to a 3-year old thread so ingredients may change from time to time.

But the good news is that Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce is gluten-free. http://www.sweetbabyraysmeats.com/FAQ

If someone is newly diagnosed, your tummy may be pretty wonky at first and you may even react to things that are gluten-free.

I can not use it.  Questionable ingredients include Caramel and Modified Food Starch which can vary in their source.....I have felt good for days until tonight.  The only new thing I used was Sweet Baby Rays.  =(

Deanna - I have used Sweet Baby Ray's for years.  I've been gluten free for almost ten years. Caramel color is no longer considerend  an issue and safe to consume. Modified food starch (unless it's emphasized or followed by "wheat", by law)  is generally corn.  All of Sweet Baby Ray's are gluten free. I do think they contain HFCS which does bother me  in other products. Gluten in SBR's is not one of my concerns.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
