Guerrero Corn Tortillas
0

6 posts in this topic

Just found an excellent gluten-free corn tortilla, Guerrero Tortillas De Maiz Blanco. They are sold in my neighborhood (Bklyn, NY) for $1.29, for a bag of 30 (1 lb 11.5 oz). I've had other corn tortillas but, other than the excellent corn tortillas produced by Mission, these are the only ones I've found that are designated Gluten Free on the packaging.

Have you tried them yet? I used them for the first time in a casserole about a month ago. I had a horrible reaction to the casserole and the only things that weren't fresh were the tortillas, the chicken stock that I used, and my McCormick's spices. I've been trying to figure out which was the problem but ever since I've been really sick so I haven't been able to make a connection with just one ingredient! Thanks!

You seem to get cc'd or something from every manufactured product. Perhaps you should stick to minimally processed foods?

Are you new to gluten-free? If so, perhaps you still haven't healed & got everything running smoothly yet?

I've been gluten free since (technically) November of last year. I get a bit of cc by trial and error, things that should be gluten-free but are manufactured with gluten-containing products. But whatever has gotten me recently has been a staple in my pantry for awhile. We are pretty sure we've narrowed it down to the Swanson's Chicken Broth or spices that I've used. We really think that's what's happened with the dish I'm referring to here, but I'd love to know another Celiac has tried them and has not had trouble!

Actually, I'm hyper-sensitive and get skin reactions as well. I reacted to something marked gluten-free (topical) in the US, but upon further research they don't sell it gluten-free in the UK because it contains too many ppm for their standards. This was back in March.

I sympathize with the random "gluten free" tortilla and broth/soup reactions. I don't think some these companies test every batch, unless somebody shows me something in writing which states that this is their policy. And I've definitely gotten very sick off of a "gluten free" marked corn flour from a known company that DOES test every batch, and I can't imagine how badly cross contaminated that bag must have been.

I've been gluten free for nearly nine years. What really chaps my @$$ is if I give the allergic dog a treat of something that is supposed to be safe for both of us, and as a result, I get brain fog and he pukes it up or starts scratching himself a hot spot. And this has happened more than once. Not all the time, just enough that it's one of the things I'm starting to question whether I should keep exposing myself to (not to mention the dog). The other dog will break housetraining and pee. :angry:<_< They are already on limited ingredient special dogfood, and if the only thing was it was a piece of a tortilla, or a bread that I just made and I gave them a little bite of it plain, that narrows it down quite a bit.

I have started to make a very limited ingredient flatbread or micro-muffincup when I open a new bag of corn product or try out a different ingredient or brand, then wait to see what the reaction is, because I don't want to make 2 entire loaves of bread and have to then tell my spouse he has to eat it all. I'm on a newer bag right now that really is gluten free per the reactions, it's a blue corn flour, and of course when I went back to the store for another, they didn't have it. :angry:

Since my original post, I've been eating these tortillas every day, and have had no problems as a result.

The same parent company, Gruma, makes both Mission and Guerrero tortillas.

Sorry that this thread got misdirected, it was not intended to discuss the possibility of gluten cross-contamination in this product, and others - it was to let people know that there's a very inexpensive corn tortilla, gluten-free and labeled as such, that is available.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
