Kind Gluten Free Granola
0

12 posts in this topic

I saw kind has put out a gluten free granola. There are several different varieties and they are made with gluten free oats. I have stayed away from oats for years but I really want to try this granola. Do you eat certified gluten free oats with or without problems? I read so much conflicting info about it I have always just satyed away.

Here's a CSA article that explains oats. Basically most celiacs can tolerate them but a few react as if they are a gluten grain.

Personally I can eat them though I'm off grains for the time being.

I am able to eat oats as long at they are certified gluten-free, never had a problem even from the start, I did not even know that I should have waited a bit to heal. A good Granola is Bakery on Main there are different flavors. I love the nutty cranberry granola. There is no oats in there. Eating them right now. Expensive but good. Raleys in Nor Cal carries them. Be careful with the oats. Lots of chances for cc.

I eat only the certified gluten-free oats, and eat them at least 5 days a week for breakfast. Never had any problems. I usually buy "Only Oats" by Avena Foods. They're available in Canada, but I'm not sure about elsewhere. I used to eat the gluten-free Bob's Red Mill oats and never had any problems with them either (just switched brands because the Only Oats are cheaper).

be cautious with Kind granola. unfortunately i reacted to it, I suspect due to oats. Also, Bakery on Main , which says gluten free, states under ingredients that it is manufactured on shared equipment. So be careful with that one too. . I miss granolas so much, but for many of us, oats just don't seem to agree... anyone have a good oat free granola recipe? Currently I am just mixing dried cherries with walnuts and fresh fruit. But I miss the intense crunch of granola!

Are you sure that it's shared equipment with gluten? Bakery on Main only makes gluten-free products as far as I know, and that's all their website lists. Are you sure it's not "made in a facility that also processes tree nuts and peanuts"?

But I can eat certified oats just fine. Cream Hill Estates, Only Oats, Bob's Red Mill. They're all quite fine.

I have a good gluten free granola recipe I would be happy to share, if anyone wants it. It's not low calorie, but it's tasty and gluten free. I use Bob's Gluten Free Oats, but whatever works for you would work in the recipe. I've thought of subbing in quinoa flakes, but haven't tried that yet. Although I'm sure you could use any granola recipe that you like and use gluten free ingredients and baking pans, and be just fine. I prefer my own because I know what is in it, it tastes great, and when bake a batch the whole house smells like oatmeal cookies.

Also, Udi's granola is pretty good, for packaged cereal.

Peace,

Beth.

Nope I don't eat gluten free oats at all. React horribly. I even react to gluten free oat cross contamination. So KIND bars are out for me because of the oat cc risk. I used to love them and thought I was reacting to sesame, but it turned out to be oat cc. There are other gluten free products I can't eat because of the cc risk also.

Just wanted to share a study that came out last year -- one of the reasons why oats are so confusing is that not all varieties of oat are the same.

The study (published in Gut and also reviewed here on Celiac.com) took a look at an assortment of different strains of oat.

All the oats were clean/non-contaminated, but only some of them tested as gluten-free. The study used two different types of test:

  • an ELISA test with the G12 antibody
  • a Western Blot, where T-cells from patients with celiac disease were exposed to the oats

The strains that tested positive with the ELISA also caused the cells from celiac patients to have a reaction -- pretty clear evidence that there is not a yes/no answer when it comes to the safety of oats.

Yes! This explains a lot. I can only eat Bob's Red Mill, Cream Hill Estates, and Only Oats. There are other certified gluten-free brands we have here which are sickening, and I was wondering why!

Not as good as oats, but have you tried quinoa flakes? They are nutty like oats and have some substance to go with those dried fruits and nuts.

i LOVE the Kind Peanut Granola & I' m fairly sensitive & never had a problem. I believe this company is a safe company.... I think Udi's granola is good... I'm not crazy about bakery on the main products...but again safe....

remember that newly dx'd should not do oats for at least a year.......the intestinal tract needs time to heal. Oats is alot to handle when trying to heal the I Track at the beginning...and then some will never be able to handle oats....

I've been eating oats since they first came out gluten-free ,(so several years ago). To this day I can not eat more than a single serving more than twice a week ...

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
