Datu Puti Soy Sauce? Kraft Honey Dijon Vinaigrette? What Went Wrong?
0

7 posts in this topic

Everything with my stomach was going so well. Hadn't had a problem in several weeks and I felt great. Then, last Thursday, a week ago now, my mom used to soy sauce that didn't LIST wheat as an ingredient, but it also didn't say it was gluten-free or have any information on the internet. But I got reckless and ate it anyway, and then a few hours later I was having major stomach problems, which persisted until Sunday and then went away for a few days, only to reappear this afternoon.

Is anyone familiar with this Datu Puti Soy Sauce? I doubt anyone will be, it's obscure and shipped directly from Vietnam. I can't believe how stupid I was, I let my mom talk me into it because it was cheaper than my normal stuff and she does the grocery shopping.

Now the only other possibility is the Kraft Honey Dijon Vinaigrette on some salad right before the dish involving soy sauce. I just don't think it could be anything else, I am very careful. I've never actually been knowingly glutened before so I am not sure exactly what it is like.

I've been gluten-free for six months and not super sensitive or anything.

Do you think today's symptoms were from last week's potential glutening or something else? The only even potentially strange thing I ate today was some breakfast sausage.

Thanks so much for your time!

Don't think it's the Kraft dressing--that's coming up as gluten free: http://www.gfoverflow.com/product.php?id=007291. And Kraft is supposed to be one of the best for clearly labeling any gluten in the ingredients. The ingredient list for the soy sauce looks ok, too--Soybean extract, water, iodized salt, caramel and 0.1% sodium benzoate (if it's the same variety that (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) shows). I'd check the breakfast sausage.

If the soy sauce doesn't have wheat in the ingredients, it should be gluten-free.

Well, I checked the breakfast sausage and it didn't list any ingredients with gluten in them. Plus, that wouldn't explain my symptoms last week, since I ate that for the first time yesterday.

It's just really weird because I was being very careful. I ate a gluten free burger at Red Robin on Tuesday but my stomach continued to be great until Thursday, so I don't think that could have anything to do with it.

(sorry for the delayed response, I have limited internet)

If it is a Kraft product, any gluten source will be clearly disclosed by naming the source grain in the ingredient list.

I am betting on the RR burger. Gluten reactions can be delayed for up to a week. The products that you are questioning look to be gluten free.

I would wonder about the soy sauce IF it was not ordered through a US company or carried in stores here. If it is marketed in the US it would have to list the wheat if it is there. You also could be having issues with soy. Maybe don't use the sauce until you are feeling better for a bit and then try it again.

Thanks, guys! I was worried it could be the burger. :( And yes, I was thinking the same on the soy sauce; since it's not from the US they don't have to follow the same rules.

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?

      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,
