Green & Black Chocolate

9 posts in this topic

I stopped eating gluten about 3 weeks ago, i also stopped eating soya, msg, dairy and basically everything processed. Only thing i do have is green & blacks 85% dark organic chocolate, chocolate is my one addiction. I've noticed though that when i have some i start to have symptoms, irritability, foggy head. It does say on the label that it may contain soya or milk so i'm gussing it could be that. Does anyone know of any chocolate that is safe to eat cos i really can't imagine having to give up chocolate along with everything else.

I love chocolate too, but being allergic to soy means I can't have it. I buy the 100% cacoa chocolate bars. It is a little bitter to begin with, but you get used to it. I now thoroughly enjoy it. Dip it in peanut butter (Maranatha brand is the best) to get started. Eventually you will like it, and won't miss the sugary icky chocolate of past days..

There are Chocolate Chips by "Life is Good" and they are strictly Allergy Free.

I have not had Chocolate for 2 years due to Nut Allergy and this product is dedicated to being allergen free.

No Financial Interest, just a happy customer.

I can't eat dark chocolate, gluten-free or not, in any significant quantity.

Did you use to eat such dark chocolate? There's a lot of salicylates and amines in chocolate and those 85% bars are pretty intense. if you try another brand (gluten-free, like Dagoba) try the same portion size and see how you feel. I've got my fingers crossed for you!

Green and Black does indeed contain Soya Lecithin unfortunately. One good place to get chocolate is http://www.soyfreesales.com/index.htm

The other site I was going to suggest is temporarily closed while relocating but will be re-opening soon hopefully... http://www.wheyoutchocolate.com/index.htm

They both are great!!!

My husband brought me 2 Green and Black white chocolate bars yesterday and for some reason I looked at the ingredients and saw the nasty word wheat. Went on their website and all their gluten free info is gone and instead is listed may contain wheat. I love white chocolate and am allergic to dark and this was the only game in town so I called them. They said they process wheat on the same lines as their chocolate and can no longer say they are gluten free. Any of it. So, if you're still eating it, be aware you may be getting wheat along with it. What a lousy day! First Mission tortillas and now this. Two of my favorites. But, maybe that explains why I am always getting "mystery glutening". So, I got a new box of jelly bellys and decided to check their website which has always said they are gluten free. Well, guess what? All that info is GONE. So, I wrote to them and am awaiting a reply. Until then, I am not touching them. :(

    • Desperately Seeking DISARONNO!
      Hello. I found some posts regarding Disarrono; however, the most recent post was from 2008. I'm hoping someone more recently can answer my question. The company in Italy keeps insisting that Disaronno is gluten free, and posts dating back to 2008 state that it is. Do any of you who post on this forum drink Disaronno and have no problems with it? I would truly love to hear from fellow Celiacs who do or have had Disaronno since being gluten free. I would LOVE to hear that I can enjoy this wonderful beverage again! Thank you for your feedback!
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I finally found out my gluten issues right after I left a very stressful job and could no longer function I was so ill. Symptoms had gone on for decades before, but it took a moment of stress to bring it to a head. I had anxiety gerd and the irregular heartbeat and I had a nasty bout of shingles when I was 20 which I've subsequently realised was due to my compromised immune system.  Shingles follows a particular nerve  around the body which is probably why Cristiana's dr suspected it. I had it from the front right of torso moving around to my back. The pain you describe is similar to how shingles felt before the blisters arrived, it starts with the skin feeling very tender as if it's been burnt. Maybe you're getting the forerunner to it and your body is successfully stopping it progressing? Ah, enough amateur doctoring from me! I hope you get the answers you need and are soon on the way to recovery. Sending you best wishes.
    • Amaranth and Quinoa: Pseudo-cereal Super Foods
      My latest obsession is creating new quinoa recipes, since my eight year old daughter absolutely loves it! Her favorite is warm quinoa with crumbled turkey sausage, broccoli, and lots of cumin. She also loves it with oil and balsamic vinegar. I like it cold with chopped veggies, garlic, and fresh squeezed lemon juice. View the full article

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.

      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,
