What Companies/products Do You Absolutely Trust?

11 posts in this topic

As much as I get on here to see whether others have had problems with the same products, I sometimes find myself getting tired of adding to the seemingly endless list of processed products that have caused a gluten reaction for me.

I've been at this three years now. I've only recently gotten to the point where I'm eating very, very little processed food (and slowly feeling better). It is very obvious, then, when I do react. Unfortunately, this has caused me to cut out some products I previously trusted implicitly.

So, I'm trying to think positively and make a list of the foods I KNOW without a doubt are ok for me. My go-to foods when I'm feeling yucky and need to reboot.

I think this could be helpful for those of us who are super sensitive to CC. I actually thought the whole CC thing was a myth for awhile, that those people were crazy... Now I've crossed over, and I'm hoping we can all help each other with CC-sensitive suggestions in one place!

My top few:

1. Larabars

2. Tinkyada pasta

3. Stonyfield Farm yogurt (at least the plain for sure)

Anyone else want to join in?

Sorry, but can you clarify: is this a list of foods that are safe? Or, is it a list of foods that sometimes have made some people sick?

That looks like a safe list. I like Ians as well for my kids. Also Gluten Free Pantry is also really good for pie crust and breads!

Spartan store brand canned fruit and veggies, they keep costs down by limiting the number of ingredients. When I'm to sick to think and cook, I eat them cold from the can.

The brand I trust is Katz Gluten Free since they are a dedicated Gluten Free, Nut Free, and DAiry Free facility. Along with that, their ingredients are so easy to understand and know what you're eating.

    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
