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

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
