Problems With Tinkyada Pasta?
0

19 posts in this topic

So I've been reading some super sensitives have trouble with Tinkyada pastas which is what I use. Have ya'll found that to be the case? Do you know what the problem with their pastas would be? From what I've read and talking to them, it seems like their products should be free from gluten contamination, but I'm considering doing a food challenge just to see if I can tell a difference. Also, are there are brands of pasta you recommend? Some others that I've seen that would seem to be ok are Rizopia, Mrs Leepers, Ener G and Ancient Harvest.

Absolutely no problems with Tinkyada pasta.

(as far as I know, it's all they make there. Certified out the ying-yang as Kosher, gluten-free, allergen-free, all organic.)

If you want variety in your pasta choices, you can try corn pasta.

Sam Mills, BiAglut, Schar.

All good. :)

I am extremely sensitive to trace gluten CC. I know when I've been "hit".

I'm one of them super sensitives and that's the kind I eat because I hate the texture of corn pasta. I have no issues with Tinkyada pasta.

I'm pretty darn sensitive to cross contamination and have been enjoying Tinkyada for years now. Never a problem with it.

Just agreeing here that we did not care for the corn pasta . . . also no issues with Tinkyada (although my daughter is not super sensitive).

Could you be reacting to the brown rice in the pasta? I can't eat their pasta because brown rice gives me severe stomach pain and bad C. (Gluten gives me very mild stomach issues. I mostly get neuro symptoms from gluten.)

My kids prefer BiAglut (corn and something else) to Tinkyada. I eat Le Veneziane (corn only). It's far better than any other corn pasta I've tried. I order both online from here: http://www.quattrobimbi.com/

I found Mrs. Leepers a bit better, but eventually got rid of both as I got rid of most of our processed foods.

I can't know for certain that it was gluten cc. We could be reacting to something else. My son and I both seem to be extremely sensitive. He has had just about every test imaginable and was only positive for celiac and dust allergy. I haven't had quite as many tests, but also negative except for celiac.

Do you know if they do anything to ensure that their rice comes from rice only (no gluten grains) farmers who don't share any equipment with gluten grains?

I too have never had a problem with Tinkyada. Trader Joe's brand is rumored to be Tinkyada but I've never done well with it...Ancient Harvest is the other brand we use with no issue.

I've become super-sensitive and have been keeping a food journal. Recently, I ate Tinkyada pasta and had a severe case of diarrhea. So, I'm crossing Tinkyada off my list......MUCH to my dismay and sorrow.

I tried Sam Mills spaghetti tonight for the first time and it was the closest thing that I remember about *real* pasta. And husband (gluten eater) loved it! :D

Super Supper with some clam sauce.!

Gosh, sorry hon. :(

I know from your other posts that you have recently been questioning a case of refractory sprue? so maybe there are other factors at play as to why you cannot tolerate this pasta? (not necessarily gluten cc)

I hope you and your doctors can figure out what's going on soon! :)

The power of the food journal. I made my own pasta for awhile. I used sorted and washed grain which I ground myself, and lots of eggs. I have since had to cut out eggs, so no more pasta.

And so it goes...no more Tinkyada pasta for me and at your suggestion, I asked my doc about dairy products. I am now off dairy until my genetic tests come back. Oh joy...best of luck to you.

At least I can still have caffeine, sugar and alcohol........ some very small pleasures.

corn pasta is okay, but I really like Tinkyada pasta. I have not have any gluten symptoms as a result of eating Tinkyada pasta. It's as close to 'real' noodles as you will find. I am greatful for Tinkyada pasta!

Thanks for the input, everyone. I guess I'll try a food challenge and see if anything happens. I hope not because I like their pasta :D

From everything I've ever read, Tinkyada is pretty much as safe as it comes.

Thinking I may have a corn intolerance I bought Tinkyada pasta. My son and I both got bad diarrhea. We also hated the texture. I'll stick with the corn pasta, I love the texture and taste. I have bought various brands and like them all.

Just thought I'd update this by saying that I ate the pasta every day for a week and didn't notice any symptoms. So it's safe as far as I'm concerned :)

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
