Rosarita Refried Beans
0

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone eat them?? I called and was told the distilled vinegar that is in them can come from wheat OR corn, and that the distilling process should remove the gluten, but they can't call them gluten free because of that, and also that it is in all their varieties. So, are they safe or not safe??

I wouldn't be able to eat them but there are many who could. Not all of us react to distilled gluten grains. Since you are very new to the diet I would pass on those until you heal a bit more. Your own refries are really easy to make. Just take some canned or cooked fresh beans and put them in a fry pan with a bit of bacon fat. Crush them up with a fork as they cook. If you wanted you could add a bit of finely chopped onion or peppers. These will keep really well in the fridge if you want to make a big batch to eat over the week.

Thank you. I often make my own pintos in a crock pot with dried beans, chicken broth, and seasonings and they are VERY good, so I guess I'll just have to get into the habit of doing this more often. But, I used to use rosarita a lot when I was in a hurry. I guess those days are over.

Not neccesarily, just wait till you have healed up well and then try them. But I bet the ones you make taste better. Have you tried freezing the ones you make for busy days?

I was JUST going to see if that might work :) I will try it for sure. We all love pinto beans and my kids loves burritos. By the way I am so sorry to read about your twin brother. That must have been extremely hard for you. Of course no words I can offer will make any difference but I wanted to just say I'm sorry.

Thank you for your kind words about my brother. Yes it was, and sometimes still is, hard. Losing a twin is like losing a part of yourself. He was a special person and like the rest of the family likely a celiac. He had given the world what he was meant to contribute though and even though his time was short he made the most of that time.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
