I'm confused on what got me yesterday. I'm slightly new to going gluten free.
I had some tuna with mayo and a Claussen pickle yesterday. Something in that meal got me. I had a bad reaction, as I usually do when I ingest gluten. But through my own research, i've read where people are saying that Kraft will label if a product has gluten. But I am not so sure after having those pickles.
Both the Kroger mayo and Claussen pickles had vinegar in them which I thought were fine for me, and both also had "natural flavors" on the ingredient list which i know can be a hidden gluten factor. Kraft did not label these pickles as containing gluten like everyone says, so I'm confused if it was the mayo or the pickles.
Does anyone have any idea which item it was that got me? or was it both? Anyone else have problems with Claussen pickles? I've had other types of pickles with no problems.
Thanks for the guidance in advance! ;)

You said you are new, so there is a chance you have cross-contaminated mayo. (Good old days of dipping utensil back into jar for alittle extra adds crumbs to the jar)
You also could have a sensitivty to eggs.

I didn't have any eggs in the tuna and the mayo was a new squeeze bottle, just opened. I am certain there wasn't any cross contamination going on. It was something I ate in either the mayo or those pickles. Possibly something that fell under the "natural flavor" ingredient.
who knows? I got new mayo that says gluten free on the bottle and not eating claussen pickles again. Just curious if anyone else had any issues with mayo or claussen.
thanks for cross contamination tip.

Mayo has eggs in it.

Gluten doesn't hide, especially in Kraft products. What did you eat earlier? Maybe it bothered you? Vinegar is rather harsh and acidic and can bother your stomach.

The only issue that I could think of with the Clauseen pickles would be if you are one of the very rare folks that don't handle distilled gluten.
You also have to keep in mind that it isn't always the last thing we ate that got us. Gluten reactions can be delayed and that at times makes it very hard to figure out what got us.

In addition, if you're new to the diet and have not healed enough, all foods (gluten or not) can be problematic.

thank you all for your help and suggestions. i just assumed it was what i recently ate because it was almost immediately after lunch. I had been fine up to that point and gluten free for awhile. then i ate and got headache, blurred vision, nauseous, then came the stomach problems. i hope i'm not sensitive to eggs now too. i love eggs. we shall see. have to figure this stuff out a day at a time.

thanks again.

Welcome to the forum! I do buy Claussen Kosher dill pickles (the minis) and haven't had a problem with them. When you're new to eating gluten-free, most anything can bother you as our bodies can be pretty wonky at times. I do trust Kraft products as they are exceptionally good at labeling.

Thank you!! Kraft seems to be very trusted by everyone, so that is good to know. Are there any issues with cottage cheese that i should be aware of?

I have never seen a cottage cheese that contained gluten, but of course, always read the labels.

It's often recommended that a newly diagnosed, go dairy free for a while. It can produce the same type of symptoms as gluten, until the villi begin to heal.

If dairy products are a problem for you, you might need to avoid them for now.

I eat the pickles just fine. However, I cannot handle even gluten-free mayo because of soy. It took me many months to figure out I was bloating and having a similiar reaction to soy like I do gluten. Did your tuna contain soy? keep a food diary and that should help pinpoint problem foods for you. Kraft is a good company I trust to lable.

The prior post all offer great suggestions, it's a learning process, it does get better :)

You could write down all the ingredients of the food items you ate and maybe something will stick out after a while. Most canned tuna and most mayo have soy in them. That is at least one possible common ingredient that is a top 8 allergen.

StarKist Selects tuna is soy-free if you find it necessary to eliminate soy.
