Wheat In Beef Jerky?
0

6 posts in this topic

:angry: I can't believe I shoved some beef jerky in my mouth and within 20 minutes I started belching it up and severe aches in my sides! I still have them. I mean, I've also been on my feet all day in crappy sneakers....but damn, this hurts. I'd take a Tylenol, but I'm not sure if I can take that because I started taking Prozac now. I think it should be Ok....I've only been taking it for two days now.

I read the ingredients of the beef jerky bag and it stated contents contain: Wheat, Soy and something else.

Why would there be wheat in beef jerky?

Seriously, gluten can be in everything. This is why it is so important to check labels. I wouldn't think they would put wheat products in makeup or lunch meats but they do. Check everything.

Oh Boy Oberto has several flavors of beef and turkey jerky that are gluten free, we found it at Wal Mart.

A number of beef jerkys have soy sauce, most of which have wheat.

Yep, soy sauce to provide salt as a preservative/flavoring or modified food starch to help bind the seasonings are usually the culprits. Oberto and Tillamook both produce gluten-free beef jerkey, or you can make your own fairly easily.

It seems that every morning I wake up I am congested as hell, my eyes water, my ears itch, and I have horrible stomach rumblings, and I burp. I had a bowl of Bryers vanilla ice cream around 10:30pm...so maybe that's bothering me this morning. This is crazy. At work, it's difficult to remember instructions. ALthough, my mental sharpness, comes and goes....

I've been taking this Clidinium for IBS/and anxiety. But now I'm into day 4 taking Prozac. I know it takes about four weekd to to feel any effects of this stuff. Tomorrow I get all my blood work done. I have to call the clinic and straighten out the details because my medical benefits just started, so I'm not sure what's all covered.

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
