Rice Noodles

6 posts in this topic

I need some info on rice noodles from the Chinese market. Are they really gluten free or maybe made on machines that have wheat flour on them from other noodles. It is either that or the chocolate rice chex my friend bought me or the rice chex I bought myself. HELP I'm miserable!

I can't be 100% sure without seeing the ingredients for the rice noodles, but my guess would be the rice noodles. I think from what I've heard, Chex is actually making quite an effort to make sure no cross contamination occurs with their gluten free rice chex mix. I have had several boxes of that lately and have not had any issues (although I'm sure they are not perfect). I noticed the other day when I went shopping that some rice noodles in the ethnic food aisle said "gluten free" on them and there were other ones that looked completely identical that did not. I would wager that those ones are probably made in the same facilities that process wheat or they may have a gluten stabilizer (or maybe some flavoring or spices that have gluten). I'd check the noodles you got to make sure that they say gluten free on them. If not, make sure next time you get the gluten free ones :o) Also, on a side note, did you get the brand name Chex? I have noticed that the store brand (I go to Krogers/Bakers) "Chex" have suspect ingredients in them that the brand name Chex cereal does not have. Hope you feel better soon!! I know how it goes!

I know it's so frustrating but it probably could be CC from either. I know some people have been having problems with Chex and if the labeling on the Chinese rice noodles isn't specific, that may be a culprit.

Sorry you feel rotten!

Thank you for your reply-It is the brand name Chex and I also have Kroger but they haven't jumped on the gluten-free wagon yet. I will have to look for gluten-free rice noodles-I got mine from the Chinese market in Denver and although the ingredients list was in English-rice water sulfites- the rest of the label was Chinese. Darn! It was so fun shopping there. Thanks for the good wishes.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
