Could It Be The Udi's?

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone had reactions to Udi's sliced bread and/or buns???

I'm so frustrated right now. My son is 7 years old who has long suffered with allergies and frequent emotional 'meltdowns'. After an allergist was unable to identify what the issue was, we started seeing a nutritionist and biofeedback specialist who identified milk and gluten. I have long suspected that his emotional reactions were tied to something he was reacting to. So we have gone off of milk and gluten (so have I).

He has done pretty well on it but over the past few days his nose has been extremely congested and he had a horrible emotional roller coaster of a meltdown yesterday and has been irritable and defiant on other days. I try to journal everything he eats and his moods during the day. Over the past week, I notice he has eaten more Udi's bread than usual. So I'm starting to wonder if there is something with the Udi's bread he is reacting too? Maybe it's something he can only have in moderation?

I'm going to not serve him any for a few days and see if he improves. But I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced something similar?

Thanks!

I react to gluten-free breads with asthma. Udi's seems to have more xanthan gum than some products and it does give some people trouble. There is also a little residual sulfite that's used processing the starches used in gluten-free bread that can be a problem for people with allergies.

It could be. I have found that with me, very small amounts of cc can add up.

I can't eat Udi's at all...it gives me and my husband really bad D and my husband is a non-celiac. There's something about the way they make it (perhaps excess Xanathan Gum) that acts like a laxative to me and I can't deal with it.

Udi's doesn't work for me. Not sure why.

I had trouble with Udi's when I was still reacting to eggs.

I can now tolerate eggs and Udi's.

For me it's the corn.

I have been eating Udis for a couple of years with no problem whatsoever and i have the milk intolerance as well. However over the last month or so I have been extremely gassy and bloated. I decided it could be the Udis as I have it every single morning so I spent the last three days not eating the bread or bagels and my bloating went away. I also would consider corn as a huge problem. Particularly tortilla chips. I seem to now not be able to tolerate them and keep in mind that corn is in everything under different names such as high fructose corn syrup, etc..

How did your son do without udi's?

I just started my 17 month old on gluten-free and tried udi's white bread and buns but 30 mins after he had it, he has D. And for the past 3 days, he is more aggressive which is unusual for him. Just wanted to know if it helped him to avoid udi's?

I see this is an older post, but I thought I'd still chime in. My daughter and I have terrible problems with Udi's...I too think it's the corn syrup they use as a mold inhibitor. The only bread we can eat other than what I make from scratch is EnerG brown rice bread, and I can eat about one sandwich a week. My daughter eats it every day which drives me crazy but it doesn't seem to bother her.

(As far as symptoms from Udi's, my daughter has stomach issues, but my arthritis flares up and I get foggy)

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
