Hello:

Can someone please clarify this for me?

Is Del Monte Ketchup gluten-free?

I am extremely new to all of this, and am just learning how to read ingredents and everything.

But one day, I had nothing but dry roasted peanuts, potato chip and a home-made roast with fresh potatoes, onions and carrots.

The only

Hi David,

Yes, the learning curve it very steep!

To help make it easier, here is a listing of companies who will clearly list all forms of gluten. When you buy these products, you know there is nothing hidden in "natural flavors" or "spices". These are the good guys:

ALL Del Monte Tomatoes & Tomato Products are gluten free (BUT Del Monte Spaghetti Sauce Flavored with Meat)

It took me a while to know the difference between unhealed and a glutening. Anything I ate was a problem for a month or so. It's also recommended to give dairy a break until some healing can take place.

This is the greatest site for information around. Hope this was helpful.

The potato chips might have been the culprit. What kind were they? Some brands are notorious for cross contamination.

Welcome!! For the food cop, I probably wouldn't eat anything with natural flavorings without calling the company first. That's cause of my own experience. It isn't always a problem for us but sometimes it does contain gluten products which of course are natural. But that' s just me.

It could have been something else you reacted to. What did you season your roast with? It is helpfull to jot down what you are eating in the beginning so in case you get that "feeling", you know the one I mean, you can look back & try to puzzle it together. It will help you pin down cross contamination too. Sometimes we think we are being so careful but oops! something is sneaky and gets us. I've been at it a year but this week I figured my tea was causing me to feel bad. It doesn't have any gluten on the label but I've been feeling bad since I started drinking it. I switched back to a domestic tea I know I can trust. I feel better already.

My bet for the culprit was the peanuts. Heinz ketsup is also gluten free and the distilled vinager is from corn, just in case your someone who reacts to distilled gluten grains.

I eat dry roasted peanuts no problem but last week had a reaction to Lay's potato chips. Won't ever eat those again.

    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html
