I Am A Cook, So How Do I...?
Posted 26 September 2011 - 04:07 PM
What about a soup or sauce? If I taste a little in the "front" of my mouth, spit it out and rinse; does it still get in my system if I never actually swallow any of it?
Sometimes I have another person in the kitchen with me that can test but lately there has been only me. This is really tough...Thanks! Terri O

There are studies showing many celiacs can tolerate a few milligrams of of gluten so if you absolutely, positively have no choice whatsoever (i.e. you will be out on the street with no job otherwise), work with your doctor to follow up with a repeat antibody test and biopsy in six months and see if you're healing.

But really, DON'T sample it if you can help it. You may find your reactions worsen as you heal up, and you'll be in a world of hurt.
My husband just kissed me goodbye an hour after a gluten-free meal with non-gluten-free salad dressing on his little salad and my right hand started to tingle within a minute (how I know I've been cc'd). He thought the dressing was gluten-free and I thought he was done eating long enough for it to not matter. Nope! I can't imagine purposely tasting anything at this point. it's just not worth the illness.
glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.
borderline blood test, negative biopsy.
SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.
asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)
spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)
countless fractures and infections.
i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.
very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.
