So yesterday or maybe 2 days ago im not sure. I had a batch of gluten-free pancakes even with gluten-free syrup, best thing I ever had. Since then, I keep having small stomach pains and jut randomly tired like i got gluttened. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out what is causing it. All ive had since the pancakes (which i know was all gluten-free down to the butter i used) was some cereal (choco chex corn flakes gluten-free) and Millvale Corn flakes, packaged by ADLI food store. It doesnt say gluten-free, but it contains no wheat (yes i know not good enough for some people) but then theres also the warning :processed on the same equipment that produces wheat, soy, and other allergens: yet I never had a problem with things like this before. it seems like everything I eat, is causing small stomach pains, barely noticable pains, (like a 1 out of 10) but it still worrys me cause it seems like its happening with everything ive eaten for the past few days. Am i just getting that paranoid or should i be worried ?

Do the Aldi corn flakes have Malt in them? That seems to show up in cereals that seem like they should be gluten-free.

Found this: http://www.zeer.com/...lakes/000037514

Milled Corn, Sugar, Salt, Malt Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup. Vitamins and Minerals: Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C)Reduced Iron, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6)Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)Vitamin A Palmitate, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1)Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. BHT Added to Packaging Material to Help Preserve Freshness.


Malt is made from barley and barley has gluten.

If you eat that stuff that's made on shared equipment, you do run that risk... whether it's 1 in 10, in your case. But if you get that 1 in 10 product that makes you feel sick, to me, it's not worth it. I generally avoid foods that have a made on shared equipment disclaimer. I don't freak out as much as shared facility foods for myself, although I do try to stay away from those, too. I was having a lot of stomach pain over the last couple of months. I really started paying closer attention to what I ate, (the few things that I don't make) and really avoiding any prepared foods or foods that have the disclaimers. I'm feeling better. ;) Some of us are more sensitive than others.

Initially you won't have a reaction to minute amounts of gluten (from barley malt, cross-contamination etc) yet they are have an effect on the villi, it's the cumulative effect of ingesting small amounts over a long period of time that will then show as problems.

If you had a blood test right now the readings would be off the scale.

With so many commercial breakfast cereals being made on shared equipment, or having malt or cross contaminated oats or corn in them, it's safest to stick with cereals that are specifically labeled "gluten free."
