Pretty sure it's not wheat, I have tolerated test of piece of bread a mo ago. Maybe it was food poisoning?? I got nauseated 30 min after I ate them.


Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. In your first post you said you have been really careful to be gluten free. Did you eat the bread before you started trying to be gluten free? I didn't have bad stomach-related reactions to regular bread before I went gluten free either. I became much more sensitive to gluten (AKA wheat, rye, barley) after I was 100% gluten free for a while. Now if I have even a little bit I get symptoms similar to food poisioning. Maybe that is what's going on with you?

I think we all thought you had Celiac or gluten intolerance. Not sure what to tell you. Could be any of the ingredients or none (virus, food poisoning, other food or medication).

I do have gluten intol, proven by daily cramps and diarrhea remission after I stopped consuming gluten. And even better w/o dairy. I did the enterolab and it came back pos for gluten and dairy IgA elev and I have the celiac and the gluten gene. Along w some mild fat malabsorption. But perhaps it was the butter or corn flour or food poisoning? Just wondered if anyone out there had heard of a crazy reaction like that. Well my Nanny will eat the tamales and if she doesn't get sick....will have me perplexed, unless I happened to get the bacteria batch. Just everything I read on food poisoning says it starts 2-4 hrs later and lasts much longer than the 3 hr ordeal I had. <_<

I was sort of gluten free when I ate the bread, only for about a mo. Because I got tired of the diet. Maybe I should test that out and eat some bagels....mmmmm I do miss em much!
Since then I have been gluten free for about 2 mo.....
