I am a fairly diagnosed Celiac. I have been on the diet for 6 months. But suddenly I have had a very bad reaction to raisins and dates! I only eat Sunmaid, since they have reported to be Gluten free. But I have had the same "gluten tainted" reaction to them, that I never had before! I love raisins, and have eaten them for years. Does anyone have any idea what is happening?

I have been gluten free for almost 2 months and I can no longer eat raisins either and I don't know why. I used to eat them all the time too.. Now the pain in my stomach from them is so severe that it's just not worth it. I don't have a clue why either and mine are Sunmaid.

I am sure it's coincidence but the last several Lara Bars I have had seemed to be almost all dates and very little of the other stuff. I am sicker than a dog at present. I keep trying to give them up as the dates really do seem to bother me. I gave up raisins last year because they were like crack to me.. I would go through boxes of them and just kept losing more and more weight. I was suspecting FM.

Larabars are tested by the company for gluten content. Not every single bar but they are tested.

i cant eat Lara bars at all- because of the high fructose content in the dates. i can handle the tiny bit of dates or raisins in the gluten-free Nugo bars- because its a smaller amount- but not the Lara bars- its too much

Figs also seem to be problematic.

Ok weird, i was thinking maybe my usual brand was losing quality or something. I had this very thing happen too, in my case they where even making me nauseous to chew them. As far as i know im still Ok with whole grapes, but i cant stand raisins anymore. Im not sure about dates, as i dont like them to begin with. I do hope i can still eat dried figs.

I have a problem with raisins and dates too, but not fructose in general. Additionally, some brands bother me more than others. That makes me conclude that it is cc and not fructose, or something about the dried fruit itself. That should vary by brand, while cc easily could.

Not sure if this is relevant but you could check it out.

Does your dried fruit contain Sulfites (used to preserve color and maintain a glaze)

I agree with the above poster...sulfites may be the culprit.

I know these posts are older, but I have the same problem too. So, now I just stick with fresh fruit only.
