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 :)

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
