Pop Corn And Make Up

4 posts in this topic

First does any one know what kind of pop corn is safe?

I was wondering if it is really important that I use gluten free make up, tooth paste, body lotion and what ever else i would use. Just wondering if that could be a reason for all the nauseas. And if it is important what do I use?

For the popcorn, I'd recommend avoiding those prepackaged, pre-seasoned things, and just make your own. Healthier, safer, and more economical too. I'm sure some are gluten-free, but I don't buy them, so can't suggest any. I've heard the microwave ones have some nasty chemicals lining the bags though.

Yes, it is important to use gluten-free toothpaste, skin/hair care products, etc. There are many threads about such products, and I'm sure you'll also get plenty of suggestions too.

Hi Valerie,

For popcorn, I buy Orville Redenbacher plain kernals in the plastic jar. I make it on top of the stove with a little light olive oil and sea salt.

I would definately check and make sure your personal care products are gluten-free. For me, this made a big difference. I use Crest toothpaste, Dove bar soap, Softsoap liquid soap for hand washing. Garnier makes lots of gluten-free products--call the 800# on the bottle to make sure (their customer service is very nice), as does Dove. I use salon haircare products by Brocato--the Spplash line is gluten-free.

A bunch of us here like Everyday Minerals--

They offer samples, so you can play and figure out what colors look best on you. I use their lip glosses, as well as Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmers. :)

I vote for making your own popcorn also. It's easy and if your pan has a glass lid it is fun to watch. You can get air poppers real cheaply also. You can use all kinds of things to season. Herbs, grated cheeses, butter etc.

It is important to use gluten free make up and toiletries. There is a thread on here for a good mineral makeup and if you do a board search you may be able to find info on whether products you like are safe or not.

    • 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 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.
