Ugh...chickpeas

Well I'm finally facing the fact that sadly, chickpeas are off the list.

No matter what, I get sick, drained, HORRIBLE feeling when I eat them.

I have no idea why and I tried to deny it for the longest time as

I'm gluten free and vegetarian and there is so little I can eat. Chickpeas

were a big staple food for me in the past, but I started noticing the connection

to feeling bad and eating them so I gave them up for a long time.

Then I began testing, and sure enough, on the days I ate them I began

feeling depressed, drained, sick to my stomach and developing new

facial breakouts within the hour. In fact I seem even more bothered by them

than I am gluten! Gluten at least takes a few hours or more.

This sucks! :(

Wow, that is a weird one. Could it be the brand --perhaps something that thickens the liquid in the can?

I'd be lost without them and whole hominy!

Every other bean (that Ive tried) seems to be fine. I don't think its the brand of hummus because the same thing has happened with canned chickpeas (both organic, inorganic, and from salad bars). I don't have a clue how they could be getting contaminated with gluten all those times. It must be just another sensitivity.

Anyone tried hummus made with white or red beans instead? Think it would be as good?

Wait, have you only used canned chick peas? I have a lot of intolerances, and I'm on a huge elimination diet. I tried canned black beans once, and I seemed to have a reaction to them, same w canned refried beans. So finally I made my own refried beans - soaked pintos over night, boiled until soft, then mashed slowly while cooking in a pan w oil and water (i cant do garlic, even) and added salt. Satisfying and no reaction . . . well, other than undigested pieces showing up in the toilet, making me wonder if I had worms!!

Try using dried chick peas. I really think it could be the processing, or a preservative. I can tolerate fresh-squeezed lemon juice, but not the bottled.

I saw something on tv once about it and they say always always always rinse canned beans extremely well because they way they are processed releases a lot of the gassy stuff... so the slimy stuff around the beans is what makes you gassy... if you wash them well first it isn't supposed to cause the gassy problems the same... don't know if that would help

Try white beans in the food processor with a little garlic, lemon, EVOO, and salt/pepper. Giada just made it on her Everyday Italian show and it is quite good. For exact directions go to foodnetwork.com and Giada in recipes.

Yeah but if it was them being canned that was the problem I would think all canned stuff would do that. I use canned refried beans and black beans and veggies all with no problems.

I'll try it with white beans, thanks!

I've had white bean hummus, trader joe's makes one. But be careful if you buy it, one of their flavors has soy sauce in it. But, it is DELICIOUS!!! Enjoy!

I have just figured out that I am a fast-oxidiser 'Protein type' through the Metabolic Typing Diet questionnaire. I have always known that I need plenty of protein and can't cope with carbs, but at least now I know why.

My genetic make-up dictates that I can't process carbs very well at all and should not be eating them. I can have some dried beans (it does not clarify whether chickpeas are included so I will have to investigate that further, although they are very high starch so I would probably be better off avoiding them completely), but what the book does say is that all beans/grains should be soaked overnight in a few changes of water prior to cooking to break down the phytates. Apparently Phytic Acid binds with calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc in the gut and prevents its absorption. When consumed excessively, phytates can cause serious mineral deficiencies, allergies, intestinal distress and osteoporosis.

Many prefer to follow a vegetarian type diet for personal or ethical reasons, but there is always the possibility that their metabolic make-up is not suited to it. If they have a Metabolism that needs plenty of protein - and that means purines that are mostly found in fish or meat (only low purine levels are in dairy and legumes so one would need to eat a large amount to compensate), then their bodies will not function properly as the cells cannot rebuild effectively. Not enough of the right protein will effectively lead to the body breaking down. Those that have an extreme 'Carbohydrate type' slow-oxidising metabolism might just about be able to get away with a vegetarian/vegan diet.

The other thing to bear in mind is that if we limit our diet to certain foods that we eat on a very regular basis we can also develop intolerances to those foods too. It is better to rotate the diet so that we are not limited to a very repetitive diet.

Just a thought... I recently found some hummus made with black beans instead of chick peas. It was great! It had a lot of cilantro, garlic and lime juice. I thought it was a great alternative to chickpeas and was full of fiber (yes, my nutritionist has me upping the fiber!) I found it pre-made at a local organic market called Roots. I'm sure you could easily make it yourself if you can't find it at a place like Whole Foods, etc.

Hope this is helpful!

I have the exact same problem. Everytime I eat chickpeas I get all bloated and feel that I cannot digest them. The same thing (to a lesser extent)happens with lentils. And it really sucks because I love them!

My boyfriend is a horticulturalist, and he suggested this may be caused by the fact that those two crops are often grown right next to wheat, because they are complementary and help each other grow. We are trying to grow lentils in our own garden this fall, so I will let you know if that works :)

I don't like chickpeas at all -- the texture gets to me -- so I always use Great Northern (white) beans as a substitution. Great in hummus and also in chana masala (both traditionally chickpea-centric).

HUmmus with the big white lime or fava bean is fairly common and a little sweeter than some with check peas.

I love them all!

You might not handle the sugars in legumes well. Have you tried Beanzyme? It's a gluten-free version of Beano.

That happens to me too! I'm vegetarian, and gluten intolerant too and I feel mild simptoms similar to gluten intolerance when I eat chick peas. Don't despair! There are lentils and other beans, protein and iron rich you can eat! Not to mention peanuts and nuts! This story of having all kinds of grains from all the world available to you is not right! Until 1900s, man only bought locally and ate locally! We don't need to eat all kinds of grains. I am very healthy and strong this way.

Take care!

Interesting your boyfriend's suggestion. Please don't break up with him until you get a result in your trial. Let us know. Thanks!

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I haven’t found any large scale studies on this, but only a handful of individual case reports suggesting that in rare cases giardia can temporarily mimic celiac (both the serology & villous atrophy) until it is treated.   I think this is a  complex matter as giardia effects patients differently (most are asymptomatic whilst others suffer from chronic symptoms including malabsorption) for reasons that may not be well understood. In my case - My GI agrees that Giardia can directly cause villous atrophy that cannot be distinguished from Celiac.  As the healing of the villi can be a slow process, I will schedule a repeat endoscopy 6-12 months after my giardia was treated.   Ttg antibodies can also take 6-12+months to completely normalise, especially if the starting levels are high. 6 months would have elapsed at the end of this month, so will schedule a repeat test, hoping for a normal Ttg result to prove the theory.   I have decided to remain on a normal gluten diet until it can be proven that I’m a celiac and not just suffering from a giardia infection.  I have reason to be optimistic as my Gliadin IgA levels are negative (not iga deficient) and also given the sharp decrease in ttg levels 4 weeks after giardia was treated.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      It took all of 3 years before ALL of my symptoms resolved and it was the neuro ones that were the last to go.  If you have been careful about your diet, then you may not be getting glutened as much as you think.  It sounds like you have been careful because you are questioning things you should question to get clarification on.  I am sure if you were doubtful, you would refrain from eating something until you know for sure. Neuro symptoms can last for much longer than other symptoms.  Please be patient because my last neuro symptom was the one that took 3 years.  Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies?  The B vitamins are important for neuro health, especially B12.
    • Week late aftershock!?
      I had a similar problem, I was glutened after a meal out at the beginning of April and am still experiencing problems, obviously not as bad now, but bad enough.  I have also become intolerant to  xanthan gum since, which cuts down the foods I can eat even more. I'm already intolerant to dairy, soya, and a whole lot of other stuff.  Cyclinglady is right about the auto-immune disorders, and I've noticed I have similar problems to her.  I too, eat easy to digest foods until the glutening symptoms pass. The sinus infection might also be a reaction to the glutening, it effects people in different ways.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks, I'll check out the information in the link. Do you remember how long you were on a gluten-free diet before your vertigo disappeared? I have been on the diet for 2 years, but I might be glutened from time to time since I am not an expert food label reader. My dizziness still persists.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
