What Do You Eat?
0

8 posts in this topic

Just realized, with a bunch of us together, maybe we can help each other find safe food or share brands that we use regularly. :-)

So, again, starting off.

What works for us:

Field Day Mediterranean sea salt

Bariani Olive oil

Ancient Harvest Quinoa - in the 25 pound bags - grain for the 1 pound boxes are shipped to the USA and packaged here. The 25 pound bags are shipped straight from Bolivia.

What we're checking out:

Some beans ordered online from Rancho Gordo

Nuts in the shell, ordered online from anuts.com

Madhava agave nectar (makes me feel a little off, but might be okay for my daughter)

And that's it, really. Everything else is fresh food from our garden, local farmers, or local ranches.

It's taken us a little over a year to get here, and I'm still screwing it up a bit, because I am not sure all the time what's safe for us. My daughter may have some fructose issues (which will kill all agave nectar hopes, obviously). I might have a couple intolerances on top of allergies. We still get reactions, even on the above diet, where we only eat food from our own kitchen.

But it's slowly improving, so at least it seems to be going in the right direction. :)

sorry ... i realize this is a really old thread, but i am trying to find out if anuts.com has cross contamination issues.  the OP said they were checking it out ... and so am i.

 

i emailed anuts.com asking about gluten contamination and was told this in my first email:

 

 -------- Great question. I did a simple internet search on peanuts and they are gluten free. The roasted in shell peanuts are dry roasted so nothing is added to them.

 

i responded and asked the gentlemen - specifically - if the peanuts were processed on equipment that also processes wheat.  this is his reply:

 

---------- You will be buying them in bulk. That is how we sell them. So we use a scoop (that is washed) and we scoop the nuts into a zip lock bag. We do have dairy in our plant (and of course other nuts) but no wheat.

 

so i am no closer to getting an answer and they seem to be pretty clueless.  they also sell trail mix and flavored popcorns.  in my experience there is a high risk of cross contamination.

 

i have gotten glutened from ordering supposedly gluten free nuts from nuts.com so am very leery of placing an order with anuts.com.    

 

has anyone gotten a straight answer from anuts.com or spoken to anyone from there that really understands the issue?

Planter's. If there is any gluten they will be labeled. If they are processed in a facility that also processes gluten containing grains, it will be labeled. I eat their cashews and cocktail peanuts all the time.

I had communications with anuts in which they said that their facility if gluten free.  I looked at the ingredients in their trail mixes and flavored popcorn and I didn't see any gluten.  Your post does not specifically state that your contamination issues are with gluten only.  For extra assurance, you can buy in shell nuts.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
