      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

Hi all,

I am having difficulty sourcing out a company that makes dried beans that does not cross-contaminate with packaging. Have you located any good dried bean/legume companies?

TIA,

Monica

Hi Monica,

I've had great luck with Rancho Gordo (www.ranchogordo.com). They only do mail order (or I think they also sell at some San Francisco area farmers markets. They ONLY do beans, and are a relatively small operation. They are a bit pricey, but REALLY good beans, and a lot of varieties you can't find elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

Ryan

I've ended up still having trouble with some beans, even triple washing with gluten-free soap, even, and massive rinsing. :(

So far, we've tried a little of the Rancho Gordo beans ourselves and they seem find for my daughter, so far.

hmmmm. You could try soaking in vodka, since gluten is soluble in alcohol, but that might be more expensive than finding beans you can use.

Considering that Chopin is the only vodka which I can tolerate it would be expensive, but maybe extra yummy.

Thanks guys...

I'll see if I can order them up to Canada.

Or maybe I'll have to take a trip to California. :-)

We have been using Eden and washing them. I think we are be CC'ed still.

Take care,

Monica

Aw maaaaaan. I did not know that. I would even try it, except I haven't found one I can use yet (allergies AND gluten, sigh). :(

wouldn't be eating beans very often with that expensive of a cleaning method, though, LOL.

Check nutsonline.com their beans are gluten free certified as well as their nuts and dried fruits!

One of the reasons you may be getting sick from beans may not be the gluten. I just found out all beans are fumigated. That is a pesticide gas that it says "mostly" evaporates in 5 min after exposing the food. If residues remain, which I think they do, and they are oil soluble, it might not wash off very easily.

I have started washing all rice and beans 2 - 4 times now and only buying organic. I think they are also fumigating organic beans if they come from outside the country.

This could be my problem. I have had problems with fumigated nuts too. Do you have a source?

You could try Seed Saver's Exchange eating beans. I don't think they have grains on site, but you'd have to ask.

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
