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.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
