Pamela's Baking Mix: Anyone Get Reactions, Diarrhea?
0

32 posts in this topic

Pamela's Baking Mix: Anyone here get reactions negative reactions after eating, like diarrhea very shortly after? If yes, any idea why? It is gluten-free.

I am revising this post. To be fair, I also had two other foods this morning about which I did not think -- one is Imagine Creamy Tomato Soup (labeled gluten-free) and another about a tablespoon of Fage Total plain yogurt (ingredients milk, cream, yogurt culture). I also had maybe a tablespoon of skim milk.

Plain yogurt and skim milk have not given me problems. However, this is the first time I have had Fage, which I do believe is supposed to be fine for gluten-free folks.

I also have not had Imagine Creamy Tomato Soup in the past. I've had Imagine Corn Soup with no problem.

The reaction I had after eating two pancakes made from Pamela's reminded me a lot of a similar reaction I had many weeks back. I had made gluten free corn muffins (from scratch using gluten-free corn meal). The recipe called for baking powder, and I added Bob's Red Mill baking powder, which turned out not to be gluten free. Back then, my body exploded. This time, the D was less, but it felt and looked so much like the baking powder episode, I had to wonder about it, hence my thinking it might have been something in the baking mix.

This is so upsetting! I was glutened last Saturday, and it took me a full week to feel better. This was the first morning that I finally seemed to be over it. I woke up feeling so good . . . and now this. Augh!

One thing I've learned . . . never, never NEVER introduce more than one completely new food at the same time as another. Here I am not knowing what the heck caused my reaction. My fault.

Anyway, any opinions on any of this would be most appreciated.

I just want to add that while I was at Disney recently, I had gluten-free pancakes and waffles (not sure what brand was used), and I was okay.

I prepared the pancakes in a freshly cleaned, white Corning Ware cornflower skillet size casserole, it was large enough to do two pancakes at a time -- Corning Ware doesn't hold gluten from wash to wash, does it? I used Pam canola oil spray (just the plain spray).

Oh, how I wish I could figure out this reaction!

I react to some gluten free items too. It seems like CC sometimes occurs.

I have been in the middle of a full blown attack this last week, and one of the few processed foods I use is "Pamala's" baking and pancake mix. I contacted the company and recieved a reply very quickly. They are a gluten free facility and have a lab on site and test every batch. They use the "Eliza" method and test down to 10 ppm's. (The best test avaliable) They assured me it is 100% gluten free. Hope this helps.

Did you eat the pancakes plain or could it be the topping?

I have a large bag of Pamela's mix that I picked up several months ago that hasn't caused me any problems yet. I'll keep this question in mind when I buy my next bag of flour or one of Pamela's mixes.

Good question. I ate them plain, absolutely nothing on top.

It may be that I need to avoid all refined gluten-free foods for a while. I am thinking about trying the Specific Carbohydrate Diet until my body gets back to normal. The 8 week gluten challenge I went through really put my body through heck, and I now seem to be hyper-sensitive refined foods, mixes, etc.

Just a guess. We'll see. Thank you for your post.

Yes. I can't eat any of the gluten free products that contain grains, starch, sugar, etc. Too difficult for me to digest. I follow the SCdiet and am doing well. I hope you get better too.

I react to Pamela's but I think it is the tapioca or one of the other grains in there; they are a dedicated facility. I am HIGHLY sensitive and I eat Fage every day and have for 2 years- it's okay. There are many of us on here who discover limiting or eliminating all grains works best at least for awhile. While healing it may be best to keep it simple to whole foods you cook yourself and stay away from processed foods for a time. I am over 4 years in and I spent over 2 years eating simply fish, meat, chicken, vegetables, some fruits (not a lot and cooked except for bananas) and slowly added foods back in one at a time while keeping a detailed food log with symptoms to help rout out culprits.

My finding was that processed foods don't generally work for me. Maybe you will find differently. Hang in there and get well!

Haven't had any of Pamela's mixes but husband seems to react to certain levels of xanthan gum and/or something else in mixes (maybe sorghum flour or pea protein). Hard to pin down exact ingredient.

I am sure Pamela's is safe -- thank you to everyone here who posted about how careful they are in being a dedicated facility. To those who are just now reading these posts, please know that I'm not knocking Pamela's . . . in fact, the mix is really great. Like so many others here, I'm just trying to figure out what I might be reacting to (which appears to be something other than gluten).

I've eliminated Fage -- I've been eating it regularly with no problems.

The soup -- I've yet to try it again, but I'll let everyone know when I do.

Does anyone know what kind of pancake mix they use at Walt Disney World? I had pancakes and a waffle while I was there with no problems. If I can find out, perhaps I can compare the ingredients in both mixes to try to determine what might be causing the reaction . . . if in fact it was Pamela's that caused it at all.

To reply to Mkat re: breakfast for 2 years:

I ate, believe it or not, a little steak (yuck! in the morning!) or a banana or rice cakes (Lundberg's) for 2 YEARS! I now eat Fage every morning often with nuts and raw sugar. My diet leans strongly toward the Paleolithic diet- I'm not a big fan of trying to replace baked goods- too many variables and possible cc too much of an issue for someone like me. I scoffed in the beginning that a miniscule amount of gluten could cause a reaction but time and much misery made me eat crow!

I have been eating mainly lean meat, veggies, fruits, and homemade yogurt for the last week, and I feel better than I have felt in a long time. I also am able to tolorate Glutenfreeda's gluten-free oatmeal very well, which has been a treat in the morning.

I currently use Pamela's.

I've made waffles, pancakes, cake loafs, batter for frying, gravies, bread, biscuits.

All these I avoided for almost 2 years and I am finally able to enjoy a nice hot waffle on the weekend with my husband. My mom says she reacts to Pamela's but is confident it's the sea salt. She is reluctant to try it again. She buys all the different flours to mix together...spends a fortune.

I will have some gas or some irregular stools, but it's only when I go nuts and eat an entire pumpkin loaf by myself in less than 48 hours (I just did this the other day) :o I love pumpkin anything...

There is milk and treenuts...perhaps maybe its that OR the fact that your body isn't up to par on wanting to process heavy carbs just yet. I read this in several other posts and also came to that conclusion on my own with my body. I think my body got used to not ingesting anything other than a potato or rice for carbs that now when I have a bread-like substance my body is like, "Whoah! What's that!"

Yes! Glutenfreeda's has Apple Cinnamon with Flax, Maple Raisin with Flax, and Banana Maple with Flax, naturally flavored, wheat free, gluten-free, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, no GMO's.

What I use is an "instant" oatmeal. It has a little nautral sugar in the mix, so those who are especially sensitive and need the Specific Carb. Diet might need to take note . . . however, I am highly sensitive and have been able to use Glutenfreeda's without issue. :)

For example, here are the ingredients for the Maple Raisin with Flax Instant Oatmeal:

Certified Gluten-free oats

Raisins

Organic maple sugar

BrownSugar

Flax Meal

Salt

If you google it, you'll see where it is available.

It is processed in a dedicated gluten-free facility , however the facility also processes peanuts, nuts, dairy, eggs and soy.

My favorite recipe:

Using a Pampered Chef Rice Cooker (or any microwave rice cooker):

Add:

1 pkg. Glutenfreeda Instant Oatmeal

1 1/2 Cup water

1-2 chopped fresh apples

Microwave on high for 15 minutes.

Delightful!

Hugs,

Lyn

Thank you very much! The soy might count me out but I will check into it, perhaps try it if I feel very brave. I am a hyper-sensitive, unfortunately.

Take care,

Pamelas gives me the poopies too. It has buttermilk in it. That may be why. I like Bob's Red Mill. They are yummy and They don't bother me at all.

Thank you! Are you referring to Bob's pancake mix or do you perhaps use a flour by Bob's that is a general baking mix, such as Pamela's?

Thanks again,

Lyn

Everyone:

I tried to edit my first post here to insert this update, but the edit option no longer appears.

I am still unsure of what caused my reaction -- I now suspect it may have been cookware related, but I have leaerned it was NOT Pamela's OR the soup. I have had both over the past couple days with no problem.

Moderators: To be fair to those tapping into this thread, If you can insert this update into the beginning of my first post here, I'd sure appreciate it.

Check what DQs you have. Mine are 1 and 3 which are gluten ataxia genes, I do not have 2 or 8 and my biopsy and original blood test were nagative too. I just had the IgG Non-Diemiated #8889X by "Quest" Labs for the gluten ataxia (do not have to eat gluten for-by the way I was gluten free for 3 months when I had the original tests) Waiting for the results now. Maybe you already know this, just threw it out!

Gluten Ataxia? I do not know about it - where can I read more? Thank you so much.

If I have a bag of bob's red mill baking mix and it expired in september, is it still good??? I'm doing an elimination diet, so it will be quite awhile before I can have anything.

Hello!

Just wanted to reply as I may have some helpful info for ya. I too get weird stomach issues when I cheat on the gluten-free diet and try some new baking flour. 99% of the time I am on the Paleo Diet... and could not be happier. So when I do veer and try something gluten-free and supposedly "tasty", I can get a weird reaction.

Try the Paleo Diet and you won't have to worry about getting any issues. It is tough at first, but trust me, it will most likely do the trick. It eliminates anything man-made and ARTIFICIAL. Eating clean is the way to GO in my book.

Be well,

John

    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.  
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to? 
    • Confused
      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
