      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

Hello fellow super sensitives. I am reacting to something. Have any of you tried Betty Crocker cake mix? Also, what is xanthan gum made from. I have severe corn allergies and I am thinking that may be my problem with these boxed mixes.

Thanks - in pain - MO :(

I get bothered by most processed foods, so I haven't tried it.

I did find this though: http://www.bettycrocker.com/products/gluten-free-baking-mixes/faq

It says that they are made in a gluten-free processing facility.

Thanks...yeah I read that on the side of the box thats why I tried it. I think that the X gum comes from corn and that is what my issue is. I react to trace amounts. I googled it and it said it can come from different things. :huh:

Xanthan Gum is a microbial polysaccharide derived from the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris.

It is produced primarily from cellulose from corn or cabbage.

Xanthan gum is used for lowering blood sugar and total cholesterol in people with diabetes. It is also used as a laxative.

Xanthan gum is sometimes used as a saliva substitute in people with dry mouth (Sjogren's syndrome).

In manufacturing, xanthan gum is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in foods, toothpastes, and medicines. Xanthan gum is also an ingredient in some sustained-release pills.

Xanthan gum is safe when up to 15 grams per day are taken. It can cause some side effects such as intestinal gas (flatulence) and bloating.

Thanks! The gum in this cake mix is grown on corn so that explains why I am sick.

Thanks for the explanation Irish.

You're welcome!!

There are ways to make baked goods without using X-gum, I am told.

People on here do it all the time.

You know what? I did not know half the "stuff" I know now about what's in our foods (before my DX), and now, I find it funny that I even KNOW what xanthan gum IS :lol:

Hey MO!! I wonder if you have seen any of gluten free girl's posts?

She has replaced x-gum in all her recipes.

Chia seeds and flax seeds and boiling water.

Check it out. I may do this myself as I have also been wondering about x-gum!

I know what GFreeMo means but just for someone reading this:

Soy doesn't have gluten. Some people have problems with soy. GFreeMo just gets the same symptoms from soy as she does to gluten. I eat capers and I get the same bloating, gas, etc as I do from gluten. No gluten in them, just me.

Carry-on. :D
