Safe Rice For Oat Intolerant Celiacs?

8 posts in this topic

Do any of you super sensitives that react to oats and oat cc (i.e. - lundberg rice products) have a safe rice brand I could try? It's mucho important for some upcoming traveling. Thanks a bunch!

Lundberg rice is safe. I emailed them last week and they told me that rice is all they produce. There are no oats there. with that said, Lundberg is the one and only rice that I can eat. Everything else I have tried had made me sick. I like the Sweet rice.

The problem for me with other brands of rice is that I am very corn allergic and the enrichment is adhered using corn starch. I found the brown unenriched to be CC with corn. I believe that Mahatma Brown rice says gluten free on the label. That should work if you are ok with corn.

I use Lundberg too and I am intolerant to oats. My favorite is the White Basmati.

Uncle Ben's ASSURED me that they don't use any corn whatsoever. I too am extremely sensitive to corn, and Uncle Ben's has never given me any problems. It's a good thing too because the only two rices available here are Uncle Ben's and Minute Rice. <_<

Do you have any Asian specialty stores in your area? Because usually they'll have rice that's certified to have come in no contact with oats or any other gluten containing-food. Shipped from Thailand or China, India or Japan... and usually organic too!

I just moved from minute rice to using this brand of rice Lotus Foods. However, I'm still not sure if I am oat intolerant or not so I cannot offer any insight on that. Perhaps another option for you though.

I use Nishiki short grained rice, from 99 Ranch. I've also used a kind of black rice from there. No problems with it, but don't quote me on that because I don't know what the actual documentation on these products is.

Oh thanks Mateto! That's a brilliant idea! I'll head there this week.

As for Lundberg, I dont believe it isn't oat cc'd. They use oats as their cover crop so there would likely be lots of cc (there's a video about it on the lundberg website). It gets me, dh and all! I know other super sensitives have had problems with it. gar!

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
