Old Orange Juice Thread
0

5 posts in this topic

I replied to a thread about orange juice, it turns out it's from 2005, but.......

I'm sure there's a way to make orange juice without putting flour in it.

That sounds simple and ignorant, but come on......

It's like these companies are playing cat and mouse with us and it just pisses me off. I have no respect for these companies, like Chex cereals

GLUTEN FREE WRITTEN BIG ALL OVER THE BOX

Write to them or call them, and they're like, hum, huh, well, hum,

just ridiculous to play with people like this. There oughta be a law against it and there probably is.

It was one mom who started MADD, right? Maybe I will be the mom to start GHAG (pronounced gag)Get Honest About Gluten.

It isn't usually wheat that is a problem with stuff like juice, IMHO it is more often barley. That unfortunately can be under 'natural flavors'. That said most juices are safe but I always call about the ones with natural flavors or just avoid them.

What we really need is accurate and complete labels but unfortunately if something is used as a 'flavoring agent' in a small amount the FDA does not require it to be listed. Hence the removal from 'barley' in the ingredients of Rice Dream.

I know a way to make orange juice without gluten:

Buy oranges.

Squeeze out juice.

Drink.

:D

Ok, I am being a little bit smart, but I understand the frustration. There are so many things that it seems like you shouldn't have to question the ingredients, but you do. I can't have soy and very little dairy. I found out I can tolerate goat's milk cheese better than cow's milk cheese. So I was buying goat cheese and checking ingredients and I saw one that had SOY in it. It wasn't flavored either, just plain cheese. With soy added. Why the heck would they need to put soy in cheese? Or tuna that's another one where most cans have soy. Soy is in everything just like gluten. The only good thing is they have to list the soy. Whereas with gluten they don't have to list barley or rye or oats. I think they should have to list any source of gluten. :angry:

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
