Red Dye # 40?

8 posts in this topic

I have had a few gluten type reactions lately from drinks that claim to be gluten free. I have compared the ingredients and the only thing I can find that I think would be causing it is Red 40. It was Jose Ceuervo margarita mix, Faygo red pop, and ever fresh cranberry juice. Does anyone know anything about this? I have read conflicting posts about weather or not the dye contains gluten. But either way I am pretty sure this is what is making me puff up like a balloon and get an instant headache and nausea.

Red 40 is gluten-free. It's made from coal tar or petrochemicals. (Eww, gross.) It isn't terribly uncommon to be either sensitive or allergic to it.

Unfortunately a lot of people with celiac disease have a reaction and assume the reaction is to gluten. They hop on this board or on their blog and next thing you know there are crazy rumors about gluten in this, that, or the other thing everywhere.

Yeah, It did not seem that there would be gluten in a dye. But I am very new to this. I keep find myself getting sick from things that are "gluten free". There has to be something else that is setting my body off but I have been having a heck of a time pin pointing it. I know for sure that Gluten makes me sick as a dog. But I keep getting almost the same but milder reactions when I eat and drink certain things that do not have any gluten in it. I was not sure if there where some hidden things or just other foods or additives that can give the same reaction to some people. So far I have a list of foods that do it but I have not been able to pick that ONE thing that is in them to blame. UGH ......

Unfortunately, it may be more than just one thing. Keeping a list is a good idea. Some of those items you may be able to add back later . . . some of those items you may decide that you don't WANT to add back.

Prior to my daughter being diagnosed (and for a while afterwards), she would react to blue dye. Of course being a kid that's what she was attracted to . . . The yogurt that they market to kids comes to mind.

She's able to tolerate it now but we don't go overboard with it. It's amazing how many foods have artificial dyes that you don't even realize . . . Marshmallows? Really?

I'd like to echo Skylark and Darn's thoughts and add one more:

You are still healing your gut and many foods may still be causing you grief--but it's not necessarily hidden gluten. It takes many people a long time to be able to handle foods with dyes/additives/preservatives (if ever).

I had a heckofa time after first going gluten-free and I seem to react to things like dyes, preservatives, MSG (ugh!) and other "things" they put in foods. I still have to watch what I try to add back in.

Go as clean/whole foods as you can for awhile. Then, try ONE product and see what happens. Otherwise, it is impossible to pinpoint a culprit. (been there/done that! :) )

Best wishes!

I react to MSG too if there is a lot of it in a food. Natural MSG in things like miso gets me. I also react to tyramine that's in red wine, aged cheese, and chicken livers, and aged/fermented foods. If you suspect food chemicals this info might help. http://fedup.com.au/

Skylark, ditto for me, too! red wine, aged cheeses and the lot. I think I told you this---I did the Failsafe diet for a month (ate enough brussels sprouts to last me a ifetime :lol: ) and it really knocked down that "histamine" response in me!!

To the OP--just cut out all those things for a few months and see if you feel better. :)

Red dye is a huge problem for me. I don't do well with highly processed preservatives - natural or synthetic. I've wondered if its salicylates or something else... but in the end I just avoid them.

BTW don't EVER eat RiceWorks chili chips if you have a problem with dyes. They are yummy but lethal.

    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
