Massive rookie error just now. Fancied an easy meal tonight, so I picked some Uncle Ben's Sweet and Sour. Felt the symptoms come on before I'd finished the plate :( It had no mention of anything gluten wise at all, but on their website it's rather confusingly indicated as not gluten free. The only thing I can imagine that contains gluten in the ingredients is the vinegar.

I'd been doing okay today too. Now I have a night of neurological hell ahead of me, not to mention the next few days. I've been having trouble with other things like dairy and nightshades, but this is the first time in weeks I've been glutened. Have I just reset the healing process to square one?

Just a minor setback. No biggie. We all make mistakes. Back in the saddle! ;)
For me, I notice that if I do get glutened on accident, the worst thing that I can do is stress about it. It makes things worse.
Feel better!

I have not heard of Uncle Ben's Sweet & Sour. In the US vinegar is apple based unless it says malt. Are you in another country? If it lists soy sauce, that could have wheat in it...Just looked at the UK website and the Sweet & sour sauce clearly lists wheat twice.

Actually, found it. http://www.unclebens.../sauce/oriental

The sauce I had ( original ) has no mention of wheat, spicy does though.

Thanks :)

The spicy one does list wheat, my one doesn't, yet if you go here:

https://www.marsfood...ault.aspx#sauce

... then the sauce is listed as not gluten free. All I know is I have very definitely been glutened. Even the back of my eye is burning.

Your right that was the spicy. My old eyes didn't see that tiny print. The regular doesn't list wheat. Odd. You would think they were the same except for some extra peppers.

Probably made in the same vat as the spicy. Cross contamination.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Makes sense to me. Would explain why they don't check that gluten free box, for sure.

Thanks for the replies folks :)

:(

I got done again today. Was assured by the waitress that the chef had said a sausage on my breakfast plate was gluten-free ( the rest of it couldn't have had gluten ), within 20 minutes I was starting to feel glutened, hours later I'm in a fairly bad way with GI symptoms, can't feel two fingers on my right hand ( it's almost as if my pinky and the next finger are taped together ), feel nauseous, extremely agitated ( like I've had waaay too much coffee - anyone else get that? ) and simply can't think straight.

Worse, my partner, probably rightly, thinks I was stupid to have the sausage in the first place, so now I'm in the dog house. I just can't seem to get my head round the idea that I really do have this condition.

Newbie here too!

My mistakes have been (in chronological order) Rice Krispies (malt!), Fried Green Tomatoes (breading--DUH!), Modified Food Starch (tricky).

The learning curve is steep--but I'm getting there. Reading a little bit every night to educate myself. Conclusion? Gluten is in about 95% of processed foods. :blink:

Most sausages are gluten free. Perhaps there are some with gluten but I don't know of any offhand. The problem was more likely, IMHO cross contamination from the grill. Many places cook eggs, pancakes, french toast, bacon and sausage all on the same grill. Even though the grill is usually scraped that would not be enough to prevent CC. It is best if we ask that our food be cooked in a seperate clean pan. There are also some places that add a bit of pancake batter to their scrambled eggs to make them fluffier so if you should order scrambled eggs someplace make sure they don't do that.

Yeah, unfortunately in the UK you have to be very careful, most sausages are padded out with wheat in some way. There are specific Free From varieties, but otherwise best to avoid it. Which is why I'm annoyed that the chef obviously wasn't switched on. I've been there before and they've always done me right, but this time it was a new chef.
