Glutened By Kraft Bar-b-q Sauce
0

12 posts in this topic

I've read in other threads that Kraft is a company that gives full disclosure on their labels. But something is not right, because I got glutened off their barbecue sauce. I used the Mesquite Smoked barbecue sauce to make ribs Friday night (yes, I checked label in store before I bought, and double-checked in online) and I got sick. Glutened sick, which I'm familiar with how it feels. This does not happen with the Original flavor.

Just wanted to give everyone fair warning about this flavor.

Is there any possibility whatsoever that maybe it was some kind of a flu bug? Lots of viruses are going around right now....

I trust Kraft absolutely, completely 100%...... never had a problem with them.

What kind of distilled vinegar is used in it? For most of us gluten grains when distilled are fine but for the rare oddball like myself a reaction will occur. This doesn't mean it isn't safe for most celiacs as the majority do tolerate it.

Just wanted to chime in for those of us who are trying to watch our calories, fat, carbs, sugars, and gluten. I recently discovered Walden Farms products at Sprouts:

http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/sauce_bbq.html

They use Splenda so no good if you're scared of that stuff but their BBQ sauce which is 'okay' has no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind. It's no Sweet Baby Rays but it works. Their salad dressings also have no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars.

The saying under my name says it all about how I feel about mainstream products. To those of you who have not ever become sick by eating supposedly "gluten-free" products by Kraft I would simply like to point out that cc WILL happen in facilities that are not dedicated. It would be silly to believe that it is impossible for someone to get glutenized by eating something that was manufactured in one of Kraft's facilities. It probably happens more than you think but may often be written off as it was by posters here as the flu or some other possibility.

I am an ultra sensitive celiac that actually passes out within hours of eating gluten. When I was first diagnosed and I didn't really realize how serious the cc issue was, I ate many mainstream products that were supposedly gluten free. I can tell you that with the exception of a very few items, I passed out everytime, Kraft products included. That's my personal experience.

It's unfortunate that you are super sensitive.

Of course CC will happen. But not all the time, equally, with all products made in a facility that also processes wheat products. That would be just as silly to believe.

Yes of course, I didn't mean that every mainstream item would be cross contaminated everytime. I was merely saying that mainstream items can in no way be guaranteed gluten-free and are susceptible to CC. So it would not be unrealistic to discover that someone got glutenized by Kraft BBQ sauce, that's all.

I would like to say that I do not touch the BBQ sauces because a great deal of time they have Barley Malt in them which is a gluten.

I have never been made sick by Kraft and I am so sensitive that miniscule crumbs devastate me. I would definitely suggest calling the company.

Yeah I must also chime in here that I am scarily sensitive to gluten that sometimes I swear just some particles in the air, or one or 2 crumbs touching that I eat, is enough to trigger a reaction. Even with that fact, I have never, ever had a problem with Kraft. If I buy any bbq sauces or salad dressings, etc I also make sure its made by them and only them.

    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • 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!

    • 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.
