Steve,

I MAY have had a reaction to Yogi tea (Ginger Lemon, or something like that) the one time I drank it since going gluten-free. I tried calling the phone number on the box before I drank it, but I just got their voice mail. Not good enough when I'm visiting a close friend I haven't seen in at least a year and she offers me tea! So I tried it and ended up with a headache before the visit was over. I can't be 100% sure the tea was responsible (it could have been a hunger headache, although I almost never get those anymore since going gluten-free, even when I am VERY hungry), but I won't be drinking any more of it until and unless I speak with a customer service representative who can actually give me some facts!

flagbabyds,

Why is Bigelow chamomile tea not gluten-free? I'm just curious since I like a cup of chamomile tea every now and then.

I have conflicting information as to the gluten-free status of bigelow teas, so I just e-mailed the company. I'll share the info when they get back to me.

The chamomile seems to be gluten-free. At least it is on the list of gluten-free teas I have, but that is why I am double checking. Some of their teas are also NOT dairy free, so I requested a list of the ones with dairy also, so I can avoid those too.

Celestial Seasonings is good, and they are labeling their packages as gluten free, for the teas that are infact gluten-free.

God bless,

Mariann

Well I got a response from Yogi Tea about the bags.

Dear Steve:

Thank you for the email regarding the tea bag closure. We do not use any glue or adhesives on the tea bags. They are heat sealed.

Best wishes,

They say on there web site that the tea is gluten-free but produced in a factory that also contains Gluten.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
