"food Should Taste Good" Products, Beware Oat Fiber?
0

12 posts in this topic

Hi all- I've been eating these crackers for awhile now, good flavors to choose from.

They're all labeled "Certified Gluten Free" and I've never had a reaction. Until now.

I'm not positive it was their "Cheddar" flavor that I had a reaction to, but I was curious enough to re-read the ingredients (process of elimination you know...).

Anyway, I noticed that they list "Oat Fiber" in the ingredients list.

I went to their website, under FAQ, and they said that "don't worry, the oat fiber does not contain gluten!".

I do react to oats. If you do too, maybe this is something you should be aware of (most of their chips don't contain the oat fiber, fyi).

I've never had them but wouldn't be able to eat them because I react to gluten free oats and cross contamination from them very badly. I hope you feel better soon.

I have eaten a lot of flavors of Food Should Taste good without any problems. I have not eaten the cheddar ones. Having said that, I would probably react to the dairy - do you have any issues with dairy ? Concentrated dairy based flavorings definitely don't sit well with me!

I've been buying Food Should Taste Good Chips for a few years now. The Cheddar and Multigrain flavors are ones I buy frequently and have never had an issue with the oat fiber. I am very careful at reading labels when buying gluten free products, as I am a highly sensitive celiac and will react to the slightest amount of gluten. I am VERY confident that Food Should Taste Good chips are a perfect addition to any celiac's diet. They seem to take great pride in the quality of their chips...they are the best on the market after all :)

I have found that I get have some symptoms flare up if I eat anything with whatever dye they add to foods to make them look more orange --like many cheddar flavor food items.

I have been eating other 'Food Should Taste Good' chips (have not seen Cheddar flavor) and had no symptoms.

I should have mentioned that although I don't eat the ones with oat fiber I have eaten the other varieties with no problems. The chocolate, which I haven't been able to find lately, are great with some cream cheese.

I've eaten the other flavors with no issues.

This particular time, I ate quite a few at a party. Nothing else was "suspect", I was doing the hosting.

No issues with dairy or dyes for me, but I DO react to oats.

I'll stick with the other flavors (although this cheddar flavor was terrific).

BTW, their website has a TON of new flavors I haven't seen, most all do not have the oat fiber issue.

I ate most of a bag of a different flavor a few years ago on New Year's Eve, never again, that made my new rule of NEVER eating something commercially made and new that I have not tried before, if I am planning on or have to be functional the next day.

At the time there was a discussion thread whereby we discovered the company was not disclosing that particular flavor did have the oat fiber, I was so annoyed I won't try any others, even if they might have cleaned up their act on the ingredient labeling. :angry: It does not matter if they claim to be using gluten free oats, the fact is that there was an undisclosed ingredient AND there is a small subset of gluten free oat reactors in the celiac population. I had been very, very careful that day and evening, and had not gone out because we had something planned for the next day, and that was the only new thing, and I'm a careful label reader. This meant either the bag was cross contaminated, or I was developing an oat reaction. From what I have subsequently read, this MIGHT be in turn based on the variety of oat cultivar, but still, Undisclosed ingredients = flunk with me.

I was so torqued, that I could have taken a regular corn tortilla, sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, and toasted it in the oven broiler and been perfectly safe instead.

I've been wondering about this line of product. I've tried the olive & a few of the others -not the ones with oats though. I've been having some serious bloating & other typical glutening issues since I've been eating them. I was hoping it was something else, but now I'm wondering. I'm going to lay off of them & not let my son eat any for a week or two & see how we feel. --My son has been feeling off too. These chips are the only thing new in our diet.

Was it their regular size bag of chips, not the small ones? If I ate that many chips, regardless of what flavor, I wouldn't feel good either.

I'e never known a provider of certified gluten-free foods to leave out an ingredient on a label. I guess it could have happened but I haven't heard of anyone having a reaction to these chips. They are a very reputable company.

Wow, that doesn't sound at all like a manufacturer's rep who flagged this post and signed up just to reply. If you are a sensitive celiac, then welcome, but I'm taking this response with a grain of salt (and not oat fiber).

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
