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.

    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      So I just got diagnosed with celiacs and I felt like after all the testing and stuff I would finally get the information my fiancé and I so badly needed about what is wrong with me, but the doctor came in the room at our appt and spent about 15 minutes with us talking a little bit about cross contamination, then said I need to avoid gluten like i would arsenic then sent us on our way! So I guess I am looking for some good tips and information about what is really wrong with me! I know own it's an auto immune disease. I just feel scares because I am so uneducated about it and it's such a big change. I just want to know what to do and do it right so I feel better!

      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.
