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 :)

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
