9 posts in this topic

Mmmmm!! These are SO good. I adapted a recpie from Recipe-Zaar

2 cups gluten-free flour (2/3 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup rice flour, 2/3 cup potato flour)

2 tbsp baking powder

1 cup sugar (2/3 cup tastes great!)

2 cups chopped strawberries

2 eggs (or egg substitute?)

2/3-1 cup applesauce

1/2 cup milk substitute (Rice Dream works great for me!)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I added in:

4 Tablespoons of Rice Protein Powder for the added protein boost.

It makes 12 muffins.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Hi Jamie:

Rice Dream uses barley to process their Rice Dream milk. That's printed in tiny letters on the carton. Try another brand of rice milk, like Pacific or Lundberg. ;)

here is rice dream's quote: Is Rice Dream Beverage a gluten free product?

No. Rice Dream Beverage is processed using a barley enzyme. Even though the barley enzyme is discarded after use, the final beverage might contain a minute residual amount (less than .002%) of barley protein. For a list of gluten free products click here.

i have always used either pacific, wild oats or whole foods brands b/c of this. i also got an e-mail from full circle this week saying their rice milk is gluten-free too.

here is the rice dream gluten-free list:

The following products are gluten free:

Soy Dream Non-Dairy Beverages

All varieties

Imagine Natural Organic Soups and Broths

All varieties except Organic Creamy Chicken

Power Dream Soy Energy Drinks

All varieties: Vanilla Blast, X-Treme Chocolate, Java Jolt, Sky High Chai, Mango Passion

OMG, I have been using the Rice dream this whole time (all summer) since me and my daughter have gone gluten-free. Luckily in my daughters case she doesn't like it so she uses blue diamond almond vanilla drink.

Just when you think you are getting a hang of reading the labels. It does not list anything about the barley under the ingredients. But Jenvan you are right, I went back and looked at the package and sure enough, in small letters, it is on the back side of the package. :angry:

I sure hope the new labeling laws will help to clarify this crap?? Why can't it clearly be marked as having barley in it?

Bette-

I know...it can be so complicated!! And we all get surprises. Good thing you know now. Here are several gluten-free rice milks I've tried and liked: Wild Oats, Pacific, Full Circle, Whole Foods. They are all pretty good...my one compliant is that Pacific's has a bit of a mayo taste to me...but it is doable if its all that's available. I haven't tried Lundberg, but burdee mentioned that one too.

I didn't get those muffins made...but this week is the week. I am going on vacation next week, so I can freeze and take some along then.

Jen thanks for enlightning me ;) I think for now I will just stick to the almond drinks, in all honesty I did not favor the chalky like taste of the rice dream, but I thought they all tasted that way,anyways good luck with the strawberry muffin recipe and have fun on your travels.

Jamie thanks for posting the recipe, they sound yummy, I will try it. Since we can't use Rice dream (and I do not tolerate soy) I think I will try the almond milk for the subsitute. :P

I don't tolerate soy either. I am not actually a Celiac. I am just intolerant to gluten, so it's not a problem for me to use Rice Dream after all.

Sorry for claiming it to be gluten free though! Hopefully it works with a different kind of rice milk!

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
