I was wondering because Jiff males me sick and natural does not.

There must be something else in it that makes me sick.

If the gluten-free peanut butters make you ill, check for soybean oil in the ingredients. You may also have soy intolerance problems, unless you are sensitive to peanuts. I use Adams no-stir variety or Whole Foods 'Whole Kids' variety which do not have soybean oil. Most of the 'natural' peanut butters (oil sits on the top of the jar before stirring) will not have nonpeanut oils.

Yes...I eat mostly Jif, but a little Skippy--and I don't get sick from them either.

You guys are great!

I would still be cautious about natural peanut butters. I say this simply because most peanuts (not peanut butters) I've read about are contaminated, or potentially contaminated, with wheat in the processing (i.e. such as Planters, whether salted or not, nutsonline peanuts, and the Walmart brand). Who's to say they don't use the same methods for the peanuts used for peanut butter?

Anyway, I'd love to hear results of anyone who contacts the manufacturers and such. I know Adam's has been giving me some small issues (although they were getting larger the more I ate it, until I stopped), but I don't really know if that had anything to do with gluten. My first guess was that it was a reaction to some chemical, since Adam's isn't organic, as far as I know—either that, or my body just didn't like it because it might have been old and I was eating a lot of it up until then (if you have to stir it, it's old, unless the canning process also brings the oil out: there's no oil film if you grind it fresh—that usually takes months to develop, in my experience). I used to grind peanuts in the machine at The Good Earth, although I haven't gone there in a long while, and I don't know if the peanuts they use are contaminated.

I decided to ask Adam's myself, and guess what? They replied within like 20 minutes (via phone message).

I'm glad to tell you all that they say all of their peanut butters are definitely gluten-free and that there is no risk of cross-contamination (they only deal in their peanut butters in their facility apparently).

I asked about chemicals for the non-organic varieties as well, for good measure (they do have organic varieties). They said the non-organic ones come from all over the country and so they really don't know what pesticides and such the farmers might use (since they don't all use the same ones, necessarily, but they're probably regulated somehow, at least). Anyway, maybe I'll try out their organic peanut butter (if I can find it) and see if that treats me better.

[Edit: This is only about Adam's peanut butter. I can't say if any of the other natural ones are gluten-free.]

Yay :lol:

 

But I wish they made it in those huge containers of peanut butter. You know, the ones that have massive lids. Its sometimes hard to find in the bigger jars.

Every once in a while Wal Mart has the larger size jars. Not huge, but bigger than the regular size :)

No problem! :lol:

 

We like our peanut butter.

 

They have a natural version of the honey (roasted? or was honey just added) version. I didn't care for it to much. Rather make my own peanut butter and honey mix.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
