Is Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Maple Buckwheat Cereal Ok?
0

15 posts in this topic

I know this topic may belong under the food section of the forum, but I wanted to ask the super sensitive crowd if any of you have had any luck with this cereal. I seem to do ok with some of the Erewhon cereals, but I am looking for some variety. Haven't done well with Rice Chex or Enjoy Life Cereals. I am currently avoiding corn also. Maple Buckwheat just sounds so good when you have been stuck on rice cereals. Any other suggestions? I know we should avoid processed foods, but cereal is a real weakness of mine.

You should just call them. They were very nice when I called to ask them about their gluten free buckwheat flour because it didn't say on the package if it was made in a facility that produces wheat. The woman was very helpful and said that it is made in the same facility but that they are very careful and clean everything really well. "We are very, VERY serious when we say that something is gluten free."

I think the best one I could find was Pocono's cream of buckwheat, but I don't eat that anymore.

How come you stopped eating it? Did it give you problems?

I did email them. Probably won't hear back from them til after the 4th. I am a little concerned abuot their products due to what I have seen at another site. Some people test products on their own and some of the Arrowhead Mills products, including the buckwheat flour did not do so well at testing for 10ppm. No one at that site has tested the cereal I am curious about.

I just bought this cereal an hour ago to try, as I've not seen it before. Oh my gosh...I hope that it's okay. I already got glutened today with a new product. Let me know how you all handle it!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but I am extremely sensitive and many things that other super sensitives can eat, I can't. You might be able to tolerate it still.

I'll let you know how it goes if I try it. I'm not knocking Arrowhead mills in particular. Many processed gluten free foods have enough gluten to cause some of us problems. To be honest, for me eating a little of the cereal not very often probably will not effect me too badly. I think a good stategy for some is to eat fresh, non-processed food most of the time and to make sure that if we stray towards processed food, limit the amount you take in. We all just have to figure out where our threshold is and accept the fact that our thresholds do change over time. It can be very frustrating since it is like trying to hit a moving target. What used to work for me 5 years ago definitely doesn't work now.

I did hear back from arrowhead mills. They test to 10ppm. I had already tried the cereal anyway and seemed to do ok. I do limit the amount I eat since it is processed food.

I tried it too. I don't think that I did well with it. I tried it twice, and both times I think that I had mild effects. I will not eat it again. However, I always second guess myself and think that maybe it was something else.

I sometimes wonder about the rice milk. I have switched from Rice Dream to Good Karma. What do you use with your cereal?

It's easy to make your own rice milk.

What's the recipe? or maybe a link to a recipe.

It's really super easy, and cheap as can be (first time we get to hear that about gluten-free food, huh? ;) ).

1 cup brown rice and 8 cups water - put in a pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 hours. It should turn out like a kind of slurry.

Get a blender. fill it half with clean water from the tap, the other half with some of the rice slurry.

Blend like crazy.

Strain it through a cheesecloth, or pour twice through a wire mesh. store in a clean jar in the fridge.

Do the same with the remaining slurry until there's none left.

And that's the rice milk.

It is usually about twice as thick as normal rice milk, so many people thin it out before using. It will last about 5-7 days, I'm told. And some people will add oil and/or sweeteners just before blending, to help with texture and taste.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
