I ordered from the celiac menu; chili, side salad w/ranch dressing and mashed potatoes w/out gravy. I snuck a green bean from my boyfriends plate. He had 3 bean salad. Do you think the pesky green bean got me? I thought he had said he put balsamic vinagrette on it himself but that wasnt what he said. It sits in a marinade. 3 bean salad isnt on the celiac menu nor is the salad bar. What are your thoughts. I never had 3 bean salad anywhere so i dont know whats in it. Like I said, I thought BF said he put his own dressing on it. He feels horrible right now.

If the 3-bean salad and the salad bar aren't on the celiac menu... and you ate a bean from that salad and got your salad at the salad bar... I think you found your answer. It could have been either... or both! The bean salad wasn't on the celiac menu for a reason and salad bars are notorious for cross contamination.

My salad was not from the salad bar. I ordered my 3 items separate. Only the string bean was from the salad bar. My 1st sentence in my post says..."i ordered from the celiac menu".....not the salad bar.

Here is ENP"s response. A mystery what got to me.

I have personally spoken to the Director of Menu Development, and he sent the following information:

The three bean salad is a product of Hanover Foods and does not contain any wheat based products. It is simple beans, water vinegar, sugar, onions, red peppers, salt, turmeric, natural flavorings and garlic powder.

The mashed potatoes are a product of Basic American Foods and are gluten friendly as well. It is made with potato, shortening, milk, salt, sugar, mono and diglycerides, phosphate, and sodium bisulfate.

I hope that this is helpful, and if you have any other questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me at comments@eatnpark.com or (412) 461-2000 x 1227. Thank you, and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day J

Yeah seriously. BF thinks it was the Vinagrette he added to something else that was on his plate and mingled with the bean I ate.

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
