Hashbrowns?
0

11 posts in this topic

Ingredients: Potatoes, non-hydrogenated canola and /or soybean oil, salt, dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate.

Are these okay to eat? I've read about some having issues with canola oil, and the dextrose I found on a safe list. I'm just scared of making myself more sick until I can see the doctor and get a proper eating guide.

Thanks in advance! It will be nice if I can have these for breakfast.

Sounds like the Ore-Ida ingredients. Unless your allergic on top of celiac disease, should be fine. I've had them & the fat steak fries.

But what the heck is sodium acid phosphosphate? And why do potatoes need it? Maybe to keep from getting brown? The stuff they put in food .... :huh:

I'm glad you mentioned that, the sodium acid pyrophosphate was the one that I was "Huh?" about. I understand the word sodum, and acid, but the combination with pyrophosphate on the end made me question it.

They are Safeway brand hashbrowns, I'm not sure who makes them for Safeway.

I'm going gluten free starting today (I just want to feel better), I'm not sure if I should taper it off or go cold turkey. I'm seeing a doctor later today just to talk to him and get his recomendations. Funny enough, I mentioned it to my mom who is a auto-immune insulin dependent diabetic with IBS, and she has actually quit dairy and some bread products due to the IBS meds not working.

She's going to go soon and and see about a gluten free diet as well.

This is all just so overwhelming, I'm glad I have this site and you guys :)

From Wikipedia:

"Disodium pyrophosphate also is found in frozen hash browns and other potato products, where it is used to keep the color of the potatoes from darkening."

It would be gluten-free.

Thanks Richard! I have a horrible feeling I'm going into this pathetically.

My doctor was more sympathetic than what I've read from others experiences, but he could not really give me any information on the diet. He said "Stay away fom beer, bread, and anything that has those things in it" pretty much. I advised him I've been browsing the can and cannot lists of this website and he said to use it as a tool. I understand he's not a nutritionist, I was hoping he had phamphlet style information so I wouldn't have to check online all the time.

Stylo, I realise it's been two years since your original post. But just thought i'd share this with you.

Your mother probably has the metabolic syndrome. She would really benefit from staying completely off Gluten and dairy in all forms.

The disease manifests itself in several autoimmune conditions including insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthiritis, interstitial lung and kidney disease etc.

The contemporary treatment is to supress the immune system with immunosuppresants but ask her to try a completely dairy and gluten free diet for a few months.

We went to a restaurant for breakfast this morning (Upper Deck, Campbellton). I ordered the hashbrowns, hoping that they would be made like my dad used to make them: shredded raw potatoes and onions cooked on the grill. What I was served was little cubes of pre-cooked potatoes coated in a breading that contained flour, and then deep-fried. When I questioned the waitress about it, she confirmed that the hashbrowns contained flour and that the restaurant did not offer any other potato dish that did not also contain flour. I felt like a victim of misleading labeling.

On of the "Rules of celiac" never assume ingredients - always ask. :angry:

I don't mean to be mean, but YOU have to do the asking ahead of time. Many types of hashbrowns have flour in them. Hashbrowns ALWAYS throw up a big red flag. And just because they aren't the same ones your father made doesn't mean the restaurant was being misleading. It simply means they were using crummy commercial frozen ones.

In the good news column:

Waffle House hashbrowns are gluten free. Just ask them to please use clean gloves when they fix your food. I have always found Waffle House people to be extremely cooperative.

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
