What Do You Eat?

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.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
