Pirate's Booty
0

8 posts in this topic

I had my first post-diagnosis reaction to gluten and I am trying to figure out what it was. The only new thing I have eaten was Pirate's Booty Aged White Cheddar. The ingredients looked gluten free and I found a website that said it was gluten free but my reaction says otherwise.

Has anyone else had a problem with this product?

I haven't had any issues with any of their gluten-free products that I have tried. I have been known to eat a whole bag of the cheese ones in one sitting :ph34r:

One thing you have to consider is that for some of us the reaction to gluten is a delayed reaction. Look at what you have eaten for up to 3 days before in addition to what you are that day. A food diary can be helpful for some in pinpointing what caused the problem.

Another possibility is that you may have an issue with dairy.

Thanks - I'm thinking about all I ate 2 and 3 days ago that may be the issue. I was at a BBQ but there were other celiacs there and they are ok. Maybe I ate something contaminated.

I'm getting over my lactose intolerance now that I'm gluten free and I have eaten cheese so not sure that is the issue. Good to have it confirmed that others are not having issues so I'm sure it was something else.

Do you notice if you have a problem with corn?

I can't tolerate yellow corn but am okay wtih white corn. I believe majority of popcorn (that you buy in bags) is yellow.

I stopped buying popcorn already made up and just buy the white kernnels and make my own at home on the stove.

Good Luck with everything

I can't say for sure of course but you could be right about the BBQ, you could easily have been CC'd there. If you really liked the Booty you could wait until you are feeling better and then give it another try and see if the same thing happens.

My little girl is pretty sensitive and she has never been cc'd by Pirates Booty, so I trust the brand.

Hi NC, I also ate Pirates Booty and had a very bad reaction (twice). My theory is that they're using cheese from a preshredded source, & that the cheese is tainted by being dusted with a modified food starch that contains gluten. In my experience, I'm not willing to have another episode so if it doesn't say "certified gluten free" it's off limits for me. Good luck!

    • 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 eat...is 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.
