Reaction To Kind Bars
0

9 posts in this topic

I found Kind bars and LOVE them. I even got someone I know eating them also. Well I was eating like 2 a day and started noticing that I didn't quite feel right. I think I had been glutened by other stuff at the time also. So I started eating somethings that were ok. Well I started feeling great :) Then I made the mistake of eating a Kind bar and a Larabar a few days ago and I've been feeling bad again. I'm pretty sure it's the Kind bars which sucks cos they made my life a little easier. I'm not eating either one of these bars again. Has anyone else had a reaction to them? Has anyone found a good fruit and nut bar that didn't cos a reaction? How can I get my reaction to go away? I've been chugging water. When I get glutened I get brain symptoms. I feel like my mind is in rush hour traffic :( I slept quite a bit today and I have a faint sleep hangover feeling. I find myself just staring and getting upset or angry easily. Luckily after going gluten free I'm able to keep those emotions inside a little easier or at least I think so lol Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I believe they process gluten-free oats in the facility with the Kind Bars--so if you are oat sensitive, you could be reacting to that. Lara Bars are not processed in a facility with oats.

When Starbucks began carrying the Kind Bars, I called the company and was given the oat info. They look so good, too :(:)

They are good. No wonder last year when I was having issues I felt bad after. I thought I was reacting to the sesame seeds. I just started eating them again in the last few months. I'm such an idiot. :P Just goes to prove that you can't assume anything and not let your guard down for one minute. Even after three years I still have things to learn! I think I will still let the oldest boy eat them, but not me or the youngest.

They are like crack in a package lol They are so good. I keep looking for just like 1 or 2 easy junk food replacements and I keep getting sick from them. It's so frustrating. :( Sometimes I come home and just want something like a Kind bar or some chips to snack on. I love riceworks chips but I don't know if I can eat them. I would eat a lot of them when I'd get them and not feel right. I don't know if I'm reacting to something in them or if it's because I would eat so many at a time. You know like how some people can eat a little of something and be ok. I can't eat just a few of them lol Any suggestions on some snacks? :unsure:

Any help on how to get this reaction to pass? :(

Being pretty sensitive, I rely on Lays Stax chips (made on dedicated lines) and homemade popcorn for salty/crunchy. I use either Orville Redinbacher or America's Best (which I prefer the taste of). I pop the kernels in light olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

For your reaction, drink lots of pure water, keep something bland in your stomach, and maybe sip some peppermint tea. Hope it passes soon.

Thanks for your replies. I've been drinking lots of water. I feel like a zombie so I'd rather have brains!!! lol Sorry I had to. The gluten made me do it lol :lol: I'll have to try the Stax cos I see a lot of people on here mention them.

I used to love those Kind bars too. I'm oat sensitive and they got to me.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
