      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.

Any main stream unseasoned grocery store rice would work.

Oh..whoops...I have a severe corn allergy so I have to have a corn free one so the enriched rice at the grocery store wont work. The only brown unenriched rice I have seen in my store is Mahatma and I think it's cc with corn.

There would not be any cross contamination in the field, due to the vast difference in the growing environments.

Is rice enriched with corn?

Is corn cc washable from rice? I would think that cc might be variable from batch to batch, and if you had a washing method you trusted, it might be worthwhile just to wash the rice every time.

Enriched rice is enriched with corn. The enrichment is sprayed on with corn starch. Things such as this make corn allergies really hard to live with because most of the time it is not listed on the label.

For me, with my corn reaction trying to rinse the corn off would be the same as trying to wash gluten off of something.

Enrichment

Over 70% of the white rice consumed in the United States is enriched. Rice naturally contains thiamin, niacin, and iron. However, during the milling process, the quantities of these nutrients are reduced. To bring the nutritional value of the milled product up to that of whole grain (brown), rice is enriched with thiamin, niacin, and iron. All enriched rice is additionally fortified with folic acid. The fortification of folic acid in all enriched grain-based products became law in January 1998. Enrichment levels of these nutrients, which are specified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, provide for a minimum of 2 milligrams thiamin, 13 milligrams iron, 16 milligrams niacin, and 0.7 milligrams folic acid per pound of raw rice.

The enrichment mixture is applied to rice as a coating. Therefore, it is recommended that rice not be rinsed before or after cooking and not be cooked in excessive amounts of water and then drained. The enrichment and other water-soluble vitamins and minerals would be lost.

Six states have laws that require enrichment of all milled rice: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, New York, and South Carolina. However, enriched rice is readily available in all states.

Right, the coating they talk about is corn.

So you need a company that doesn't sell any enriched products, or processes the enriched stuff in a different plant? Boy, that's a tough one.

Just got this from Lundberg. I guess it's well worth the extra cost!!!

Dear Valued Consumer,

Thank you for taking the time to contact Lundberg Family Farms it is very important to us to hear from our valued consumers. We do not enrich any of our rice varieties additionally; the facility is free of corn.

Thank you,

I'm in Australia so product availability seems to be different. I am sensitive due to my DH. I have tested many "enriched" products much to my skins distress.

I now stick to rice only ingredient list that are sourced from Thailand. Here in Aus we have many of these and Thailand doesn't have a history of want/need/forced introduction of wheat based ingredients. Thai rice, thai rice noodles etc have been my saviour for staple food.

All of this has been a long journey of experiment and failure. The Thai product for me (available in abundance here in Aus) had been my only starch staple I've been able to rely on apart from fresh potato.

Do you use any of the Thai rice flours? If so, what brand? How about potato starch? If I could do well with those 2 ingredients, a lot would open up for me as far as baking options. Thanks, Dave

I use Rice flour from Thai World Imort & Export Co. Ltd.

In stead of potato starch I use Tapioca from the same company.

I use Glutinous Rice flour from Kridsasa Foods Co. Ltd for some desserts.

As long as it comes packet from Thailand, I don't really care about the brand, as cc in Thailand is highly unlikely.

Last April I was in Thailand, ate everywhere, so who knows which brands I've consumed. Never got glutened there.

If you're having a hard time finding processed potato starch that works for you, it's actually really easy to make it yourself, if you're interested.

I am using Lundberg now...thanks to you :)

I also can't have corn and thank you for starting this post as I was unaware of rice possibly being treated with corn. And I am intending to soon make my own rice flour and rick milk.

For rice at meals I have been using A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice...very yummy but about $4 for a bit over a lb. of it.

I saw Lundberg for the first time yesterday at ShopRite and got some. They only had 2 kinds -- Short Grain Brown Rice @ 3.79 for 2 lb. and California White Basmati @ 4.49 for 2 lb.

Thanks again. All corn avoiding posts are appreciated as I am fairly new at this.

Uncle Ben's plain ol' white rice is corn free too. I had it this morning for breakfast with brown sugar and apples. It's cheap and easy to find. I called the company and they assured me that it is corn free. Lundberg is good too but it's soooo expensive. :)

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Are there any foods, like broth, that don't make your son feel sick?
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
