Do any super sensitives have issues with So Delicious coconut milk? I was thinking of getting some but I am super sensitive so I am not sure.

Also, do any of you bake with coconut flour? Any good brands out there?

Pretty sure So Delicious bothers me, but I might have to try it again to be completely sure. Tropical Tradition coconut flour is great and its never bothered me so I'd say its safe for all super sensitives. I'd recommend it to anyone.

So Delicious ice cream was fabulous and filled that niche nicely until I could have lactose again. :D

I noticed a reaction to So Delicious coconut milk back when I seemed to be able to tolerate things tested to below 5 ppm. I just looked it up and their products are tested to less than 10 ppm. I guess it would depend on your degree of super sensitivity.

I looked on the chart you linked to, but I do not see where they state that about 10 ppm....can you point that out to me?

There comes a point where we may need to just agree that "Everyone is different" in his/her reactions to low gluten levels.

Because to me, it seems like no matter WHAT product is questioned by someone on this site, and particularly in this section, someone says it gives them "a reaction".

Is it a GLUTEN reaction? What happens exactly?
How do you know it is not a reaction to something ELSE in the product??

That is significant to differentiate.

What it seems to come down to is this: if someone is so sensitive that he/she cannot tolerate any products in a package or from a factory--even a dedicated one with strictly- enforced certification policies--then he/she should never, ever use them.

At least, that seems to be the prevailing thought here.

I am extremely sensitive to trace gluten exposure--as in an accidental CC--and when I say that, I mean I get immediate neuro symptoms and various GI symptoms, insomnia, agitation, horrid BURNING muscle and skin pain and joint pain and they last for weeks. It happened only twice-- and neither was because of a packaged product with that G F circle on it.

That is what I consider being "super sensitive". Yet, I am fine with several packaged products that carry that big fat circled G F .
Dedicated facilities are about as good as it gets for us.

Posting a question like "Do any super sensitives react to....(fill in the blank)...." is going to get just two answers --(1) those who answer, "no, I do not" and (2) those who will immediately say "I did".

So sometimes, I wonder...what's the point?
There will always be someone who will say "I did."

Why? because everyone is different. :)

In the second link it states that in order to get GFCO certification it must test to less than 10 ppm.

Harrumph!

Does anybody react to XXXXX? YYYYY? ZZZZZ?

I react to water. You know, dihydrogen monoxide--H2O. When I accidentally inhale it, I have a coughing fit. OMG! I react to water--water MUST contain gluten. I KNOW it FOR SURE! :o

No matter what you ask about, there is somebody who has a problem with it--real or imagined. Doesn't mean you will.

I cannot use Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing. I know it is gluten-free--no doubt there. But something in it disagrees with me.

Believe what you choose to believe. I will believe clear scientific evidence long before I believe off-the-wall anecdotes. Your mileage may vary.

I know a number of super-sensitives who do well with Tropical Traditions coconut products, too (re: the flour question).


So sometimes, I wonder...what's the point?
There will always be someone who will say "I did."

Why? because everyone is different. :)


I think it's not always so useful for someone coming in cold, very true. Even less useful for someone who doesn't usually ask questions in the super-sensitive section, so they have no real way of gauging whose sensitivity levels might match their own. So whether someone reacted or not may have no relevance to whether THEY might react.

I think your last sentence hits the nail on the head: we're all different. I wonder if a different format of question might provide the information people are really looking for, which I imagine is, 'will I, personally, have a problem with this food?'

Perhaps listing a couple products one can eat might help. Like saying 'I can eat Kinnickinnick and Pamela's products without issue. For others who can also eat these products, do you have any trouble with Product X?'

I wonder if encouraging that type of question might enable us to focus the answers better to provide the most relevant info.

Am I misreading or are you mocking the fact that someone even asked this type of question? That's how it's coming across to me, honestly.

If you don't agree with the answers, or even with the idea that someone might have problems with a product, that's your prerogative, of course. But a response that mocks the person asking the question, or others who are answering, isn't exactly conducive to a productive forum, IMO. It would seem to lead to a situation where people who really need to know the information are too afraid of derision to ask a question.

Since so many of us have other intolerances beyond gluten, this makes a lot of sense to me.

Just because you have an adverse reaction to a product does not necessarily mean that it contains gluten. That is true of all of us, not just those who are super-sensitive. I do not consider myself to be super-sensitive. I do react to small amounts of gluten. I also react to shellfish. I would never say that that proves that lobster contains gluten. I am allergic to them, but it has nothing to do with gluten, or celiac disease.

It is not my intent to mock anyone. But this form of question recurs over and over. There is always someone who responds that, whatever the product is, they react to it. I annoys me when someone:

Replies to such a question saying they react, but never respond to questions about their reaction; or,

Posts once in a drive-by attack on a product and never returns.

It is my nature to be grouchy. ;)
