Feeling Glutened After Ice Cream Cone
0

6 posts in this topic

I keep a very detailed food log.. the only new thing I've introduced is Goldbaum's ice cream cones. After the first one I ate, I woke up at night from my stomach gurgling and couldn't go into work the next day I felt so ill.

Well here I am at 2 in the morning with horrible gas and stomach pain, after another cone. Say it ain't so.

I can't find a single bad review on these cones. Am I off the mark and it's the ice cream? (Perry's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, labeled gluten-free).

Goldbaum's is a dedicated facility, from what I have read, and I have indulged myself with one of their cones recently with coconut ice cream and felt no ill effects. And I am a "quick responder".

I have no idea if you can tolerate dairy, chocolate or peanuts, but a mix of ice cream flavors makes it really difficult to pinpoint what is making you feel ill.

Is there a big black G F in the circle on the Perry's, or just the words "gluten free" on the package? Are the various ice cream flavors run on shared lines?

Next time, try a plain flavor and no cone and see what happens.

More importantly, if you are newly diagnosed, anything could be giving you grief still. It takes a long time to heal.

Stick to a whole foods diet and no dairy for a few weeks and see if you feel better. Dairy gives those same symptoms you describe in a gut that is still healing. It cannot tolerate the lactose just yet maybe.

Just some thoughts!

I just looked those up and they look delicious.

Even among super sensitives, sensitivity levels vary, so just because someone else can eat it doesn't mean that you can, unfortunately. I think that it can be difficult for dedicated facilities to get super pure starting food materials due to farming practices which can include crop rotation and shared equipment and facilities. I buy grains, seeds, and beans whole and sort and wash them before eating. I have found what looked like gluten grains in many places where they should not be.

Although you did post in the super sensitive section, I will add that I am sensitive to very low levels of gluten.

I hope you feel better soon.

I called Perry's ice cream and they assured me they sanitize the facilities every 24 hours and the gluten-free flavors wouldn't be contaminated by non-gluten-free ones.

I've been gluten-free for 11 months. Prior to healing I couldn't tolerate dairy, but for months I've been eating it without any issues. Peanut butter is fine. I'm not positive about chocolate and will keep an eye on it.

Dilettantesteph-- the cones are absolutely delicious. I've been looking for cones since my diagnosis and was thrilled when I found 12 for $3.50 at the grocery store. I am really hoping they aren't the culprit.

I'll be totally honest, a teeny, selfish part of me is hoping it's your ice cream. :unsure: I just bought a package of these cones today for my son to try, so I really don't want it to be them! I think I'll be calling them up to double check on processing.

I don't know anything about the ice cream company's facility. But there's a question that might be good to ask them: do they test for gluten cc for their gluten free products? Many companies in the USA do not, and if they don't test, and they don't have a gluten free facility, then there can be a slight risk of gluten cc.

Many companies have gluten free facilities instead of processing their gluten products with their gluten free ones. I imagine that this is because it eliminates some of that risk.

Along with a sensitivity to wheat gluten, celiacs are often sensitive to other things such as annatto, a natural yellow food coloring that is often used in ice cream and yellow cheese, (Johnsonville Brats also contain annatto as a coloring agent, and I can't keep them down for 5 minutes!). Tartrazine, (FD&C Yellow #5) is another one that affects me, but it's made from coal-tar along with all the other AZO food colorings! Who would want to eat that, anyway? Unfortunately, it's very commonly used in foods, candy, medicines and vitamin pills.

Ask your doctor when it's a good idea to ingest petroleum distillates, and he'll tell you, "NEVER!". Then, ask him why they put it in the medicines he expects you to take....

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      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,
