Question About The Uk "not Suitable For" Label
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello :)

I just bought some sweet chili stir fry sauce from Sainsbury's, then got home to notice the "not suitable for wheat, gluten, milk (etc.) allergy sufferers due to the methods used in the manufacture of this product."

Now I know this should be a no brainer. It clearly says on the package that the product is not suitable for me, and I should therefore not eat it. I was just wondering though, if this is similar to the US "may contain" label which is incredibly overused (and in fact I eat some things which have that label with absolutely no problems).

Thanks in advance to the gluten-free English folks who can provide me with any insight :)

Plain and simple..... I wouldn't cook it for my guys <_<

That is only my opinion though. I do use stuff that doesn't specifically say 'gluten free' but has nothing dodgy in the ingredients.

I see it as damage limitation ;)

Thanks Nikki for your very logical response :D (I know I've mentioned this before but your country is the best for gluten-free. I love it)!

Hello there,

My understanding is that this message indicates a risk of cross-contamination, so I guess it's the same as the more common 'may contain' message. I wouldn't eat foods with either label.

When I first went gluten-free, I was halfway through a bag of Sainsbury's beansprouts, which are also marked as unsuitable - it hadn't occurred to me to check something that simple.

Was just about to ask about this. I've been eating gluten-free crisp or cracker breads for lunch and my asthma is back as are the neuro symptoms. I can tell within half an hour, now if I've had something troublesome so i know it's these that are the culprit. Stupidly, I took the risk based on the ingredients and ignored the "not suitable for milk allergy" message, thinking they were covering their backs.

New Coeliac Lesson 1001 I guess.

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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.
