I saw posts about the Food for life corn tortillas and people being gluten-ed, but I just ate a gluten free brown rice one and now have a horrible stomach ache and D. The only thing I ate today was an apple and a banana so I am pretty confident that it has to be this tortilla. I was just curious if anyone else has had any issues w/ these?
I eat the FFL rice tortillas at least once every other day. I've never had reactions to those. I'm VERY sensitive to gluten (and my other 6 diagnosed delayed reaction allergies). 1-3 bites of something with my allergens will give me 2 weeks of gut pain, bloating and indigestion. Gluten gives me excruciating gut pain. However, I've never had any of those reaction symptoms after eating the FFL rice tortillas.
Delayed reaction allergens (like gluten) are difficult to pinpoint. What we eat may not cause obvious symptoms for 24-72 hours after ingestion. Sometimes I don't think I'm reacting at all, because the symptoms are so subtle. However 48-72 hours later I begin to experience more severe pain and reaction symptoms. So I need to consider everything I ate during the past few days, unless I have a label which tells me that I consumed one of my allergens.

They seemed confused about what was gluten-free and what wasn't. The website at the time listed things under gluten-free that were not. They were taken off part of the website but still made to look like they were gluten-free. I loved those rice tortillas. I would make super thin crust pizzas on them. I don't eat them any more after my correspondence with the company. I keep hoping they will get thier act together......
