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.

I found some information on glutenfreewatchdog.org that you may be interested in. The tortillas mentioned were tested and there was a product alert.

I don't eat anything from Food for Life. I haven't trusted them since they labeled spelt bread as "wheat free" a few years back. Someone on the board figured out that they were using barley-treated water in some of the tortillas that were labeled gluten-free. The response when they wrote the company about undeclared gluten was very rude and dismissive. You may be able to find that thread on the board.

I used to eat their tortillas but not anymore. I had bought their bread a few time a while back. The first time I had no reaction. The next time I bought a loaf and ate it I got glutened, and not just a little bit glutened. So you might get lucky and get a product from them that is fine. Or you might not. I decided no more for me.

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...... :unsure:
