Finally it dawned on me. Udi's bread. Since it came to Canada, I have been binge eating the stuff. I was so happy to be able to eat bread that was actually like bread. I decided to try cutting it out, and what do you know, I feel fine. I looked at the ingredients tonight to try and see what ingredient could be causing me problems, the only thing listed that I don't usually eat.... teff. Wondering if others have struggles with teff. I did a google search and didn't see much. I'm so sad that I have to say goodbye to Udi.
I am worried that this may be the start of more intolerances. I wonder is there a way to prevent developing more?

My guess with Udi's is that they're using a lot of xanthan gum to get the great texture. It's a pretty good laxative and I bet Udi's uses a little too much for some folks.

I'm allergic to teff. My airways start closing up. Same thing happens with millet. Wish I could eat Udi's whole grain bread. Their white bread I eat with no issues whatsoever. I agree with Skylark, xanthan gum may be more the issue.
Yes, Gluten Free Girl has been writing lately about Xanthan gum and others. I may try the white bread, but I always feel guilty for eating white bread. I didn't grow up on it, and to me, it's like Wonderbread - yuck!

Anyhow, I have noticed that my daughter's (age 8) big D has returned this summer and this morning she's complaining of a sore throat. So, I am questioning teff for sure, but also suspect tapioca starch. We can up the Udi's awhile ago because of the Xantham gum and we don't do corn anyway. I think there are just too many ingredients in that really processed bread to keep track of.
I hope you get your reaction figured out. As for me, I will be returning to my grain free diet. This is no way to live.

Gluten-Free Bisquick already has xanthan gum in it so am curious why you would have to add more. Did you have a recipe that called for an additional amount?
I made a gluten-free deep dish pizza crust using gluten-free bisquick and almost 2 teaspoons of xanthan gum. Sure enough, the next day or three felt terrible. Bad cramps and diarrhea (not watery, but very slow and soft and many times- sorry tmi!). I am really thinking it's the xanthan gum for me. I can eat one piece of gluten-free bread with xanthan gum in it, but if I eat anymore than that it definitely affects me the same.

Last night I cooked Bobsredmill teff using the stew recipe on the package. Delicious, but the big D and more this morning. So, I am wondering if it is this brand or teff itself? Please let me know if you have experience with either.

Some people have reported problems with Bob's Red Mill.
