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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
