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

32 posts in this topic

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

Thanks for the suggestion, John! I will take a look.

I too seem to get a reaction to the Pamela's mix - but only the bread mix, not the pancake mix. At first I thought it was the sorghum, because it's higher in fiber, but I've since baked a lot of things with sorghum flour with no issue. Then I re-read the ingredients today, and saw that chicory root is in the bread mix. Chicory root is used to bump up the fiber levels (among other things) in foods - maybe this is what is causing the issues. Everything else in the mix I've used individually in baking without issue (except the millet flour). I've narrowed it down to either millet flour or chicory root.

It is sad to have such a reaction too, cause this baking mix is so good! I made jalapeno cheese hamburger buns with it and they were so tasty.

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.

Probably . . . the date on the label is often the "sell by" date. Also, if it says "best ued by" that doesn't mean you can't use it thereafter, at least for a time. If you are unsure, you might want to call Bob's and ask.

For those who are not reading the entire thread, I just want to say once again (as posted earlier here), that I went on to discover it was not the baking mix that was causing problem. It was my making other mistakes (things such as using lotion that contains gluten and then putting my hands in my mouth to floss my teeth).

Many folks here stressed that I needed to be particularly careful that I wasn't getting glutened from anything else . . . and I swore I was being 100 percent perfect. (Well, I really thought I was!) Truth be told, I was still learning, and still making mistakes.

I've since used the baking a mix a few more times with great results.

That said, I still find I do better and feel my best when I eliminate refined foods of any kind -- especially when trying to keep my weight down, but when I used the mix again, did not cause any D, C, etc.

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

I use the pancake mix for pancakes and the flour for everything else!

I cannot tolerate Pamela products.  The bread mix has inulin in it -- which is a heavy intestinal irritant for many celiacs (cramping, flatulance, diarrhea).  The pancake and baking mix has buttermilk solids.  A high percentage of Celiacs cannot tolerate milk products.  I am actually allergic to milk.

I just discovered this mix, and was so excited to have a tasty bread I could make.... make 2 loaves and didn't seem to notice anything, then by the 3rd loaf.... yikes.  A few hours after hacing a slice I had terrible gas and bloating, and ended up with diarrhea.  At the time I thought it was the frozen meal I had for lunch.  So the next day I had a slice for breakfast and a slice at lunch with my soup..... I was in a lot of pain and got a pain on my left side.  I have not had any since last Thursday and I am still having issues. I was alsmost going to make another load and then I saw some reviews on Amazon about the gas and bloating and saw this post here as well. Everytime I eat anything I get pains in my intestines.  How long does a reaction to inulin last?  I've made sure not to eat anything else with inulin (chickory root ) in it. It's been almost 5 days now.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
