Gluten In Eggs?

I had read that mothers who are breast feeding their babies should avoid eating Gluten if they suspect their baby has Celiac Disease, because Gluten Proteins show up in Breast Milk.

I had been suffering from Migraine Headaches and read about a link between Migraines and Milk, so I went Dairy Free, and my Migraines went away. I have to wonder if it had something to do with Dairy Cows being fed grains with Gluten.

I seem to have problems when I eat Eggs, even though the Eggs I eat are from my own chickens who are fed organic grains, and free ranged.

If Gluten can make it into Breast Milk, I

I don't know about that, but I haven't been able to eat eggs (unless they were baked in something like bread) for years prior to my dx. For me it's just another food intolerance, not linked to celiac. I also have problems with bananas and avacados, again, not gluten related, just can't eat them.

Here is a more accurate source for the information you listed:

http://www.celiac.com/articles/297/1/Breas...ease/Page1.html

Eggs or Meat would not be a gluten concern, unless it was an added ingredient in the product. Eggs and Meat are naturally gluten free. Many people here do have sensitivities to other foods in addition to gluten.

Eggs & dairy seem to cause problems for people with a compromised intestine but this doesn't seem to have any link to gluten. After reading Elaine Gottschall's book Breaking the Vicious Cycle, I began to understand how and why other foods can bother us. Evidently, gluten is not inherently evil. You may want to check it out to learn more. I think Leaky gut & food intolerances in general are way worse than Celiac!

I can eat dairy and eggs without any problems. I think some people are unfortunate to have many other food intolerences/allergies. If I had to give up cheese and yogurt I would be a very unhappy person. Milk I could live without.

This is off the subject but awesome picture. It might have been easier to ask for a bigger head! :lol: I think the picture is cute as can be and don't think the ears are big at all. My oldest son has slightly larger ears and I love them. He definately had to grow into them though.

I did grow into my ears. I used that picture on another forum, and someone commented on how creepy that Santa looked so I did a Photoshop on it.

I've read that gluten eaten by an animal does not get into the meat or eggs.

But about a year after going gluten free, I suddenly began to get sick after eatng eggs. I kept trying on and off to eat them here and there, but always got sick. Never had a problem with them before, just after that first year gluten free.

I have no idea why this is, but eventually I got tired of trying to eat them. I avoid eggs and everything made with them now. I hate it because I love eggs for breakfast, and it's really hard to bake anything much good without eggs.

I am starting to think that it is best to avoid eating anything that eats Gluten as a rule. Maybe Gluten is not the problem, but with as bad as food is becoming, with growth hormones, GMO corn/alfalfa/soybeans/rice/etc, antibiotics, and so on, it’s becoming unsafe to eat anything engineered out of a laboratory.

Here Monsanto engineers GMO crops that are toxic to insects, and people wonder why all the pollinating insects, such as bees, are disappearing. The stupidity of humanity is mind boggling.

There seems to be an inherent genetic flaw in the human species that allows the most ignorant and greedy of our species into administrative positions, and to date each time this happens there’s a purge (killing spree of the elites), such as the Russian revolution, Chinese revolution, French revolution, U.S. Civil War with the purge of the South, all the revolutions in Africa and South America, and so on.

I believe we are on the cusp of another purge, although this time because the greedy elites are controlling global administrative bodies, and there’s a human population like never before, this purge will be the biggest bang to date.

Hey Thomas, it might be better to stick to the discussion about eggs and gluten.

Eggs are not problem relating to gluten. Cows that graze on wheat, do not contaminate the meat that we consume.

I haven't had a problem with eggs, but I have thought about switching what I feed my chickens to something that doesn't contain gluten. This is primarily so I can stop handling gluten-filled feed.

We've already stopped feeding our sheep COB (Corn-Oats-Barley) and give them alfalfa pellets instead when we want to give them a treat. We rarely eat our sheep but occasionally we've got a spare one that goes in the freezer. I feel better about that knowing that we have gluten-free sheep, even though I do fine on meat that I know has been fed gluten. My uncle raises both cattle and wheat and sometimes he feeds the wheat to the cattle... and the beef we get from his farm hasn't caused me any issue.

I don't understand how gluten can be in human milk but not in cow's milk. But I am finding an increase in the frequency of milk problems I have. It's still intermittent and I can tolerate milk most of the time, but the times when I can't are happening more often.

I disagree with this statement. Cows are only remotely similar to humans, genetically.

They discovered the cattle genome contains at least 22,000 genes, 80 percent of which are shared with humans. And the team found that cattle have far more in common genetically with humans than do mice or rats, and might make better subjects for studying human health.

http://www.reuters.com/article/scienceNews...E53M5XT20090423

The genome of the cow has at least 22,000 genes, which is almost identical to the number found in humans. Most of the genes are also identical so, for instance, both cows and humans have a gene for growth hormone, Taylor said.

Scientists were able to tell that cows have specialized genes that help them metabolize food. And both genomes may have adapted to each other.

"Humans drink a lot of cow's milk and that's resulted in a change in the human genome so we are lactose-tolerant," Taylor said.

In fact, the cow gene sequence and the chromosomal arrangements are more similar to humans than rodents. "That means when we try to understand human biology by studying genes in related organisms, we may be better off looking at the cow sequence for a lot of functions we study in mice and rats," Worley said.

http://health.usnews.com/articles/health/h...cow-genome.html

So if it is true that we are so close to cows in genetic makeup, and humans are supposedly lactose-tolerant, then it

As to the subject, eggs do NOT contain gluten. Every single celiac I know eats eggs safely unless they have an egg allergy.

richard,

Do you have any solid research to make this claim?

I have problems with eggs, but have no allergy to them. I'd like to know if the gliadin is transferred to the egg as well, but cannot find any medical article showing research proving it one way or the other.

Interestingly enough, a friend of mine, who is allergic to fish and shellfish, cannot eat eggs if the chickens have been fed fish meal without it triggering an allergic reaction. He also gets the same reaction from sea salt.

I don't think it matters how much or how little genome we share with cows. The fact remains that cows DO digest differently than we do. I don't think anybody can argue that the digestive system of a ruminant is very similar to the digestive system of an omnivore like humans.

So this offers a plausible explanation why gluten may show up in human milk but not in cow's milk. Scientific proof? Not by a long shot. But a plausible explanation nonetheless. It would make sense that the proteins in grains are more fully digested and broken down in a cow than they would be in a human.

I think the question about how gluten passes through into milk, and in which animals, and in what quantities, and under what circumstances, should be studied further. It would also be interesting to see whether Celiacs who also react to meat, milk, or eggs, would do better if they ate those foods sourced from animals on gluten-free diets.

Not all celiacs have problems with eggs. If you want maybe do a board poll and see for yourself how many on here have no issues with them. I am a very sensitive celiac and super strict and eat eggs with no issues. Some of us do have other intolerances and/or a leaky gut that allows other proteins to cross over into the blood stream and would cause us to have a reaction but it would not be a gluten reaction.

    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.

      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!
