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.

    • Good to know, I'm allergic to sulfa as well but have taken doxycycline for a different reason without problems. I'll be storing this idea for future reference....hopefully unneeded !
    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
