      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

Is Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Maple Buckwheat Cereal Ok?

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 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.

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than location I went to. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their name for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I guess if staff members seem crazy, it's a good sign the doctor is also crazy.  I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist and tell her what ahppened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against the therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are only patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me as well.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
