Blue Diamond Crackers

Has anyone tried the Blue Diamond gluten-free crackers? I just noticed them at the store for the first time. I didn't buy them because the shared facility warning scared me. Anyone have luck with them? They look tasty.

I buy them and eat them. (Okay, well I used to before I got all the blah blah you can't have nuts crap from my doctor.) I am also super sensitive. If I even think about gluten I will be in a bathroom in half an hour wishing I were dead. That could be exaggerating just a little, but seriously, just a little.

I do tend to stay away from the shared facility items, but there are exceptions and these crackers were one for me and they will be again as soon as I'm allowed to add nuts back to my diet. I happily let my husband eat them. The difference between these crackers and say, Cheetos is that these crackers are tested to be gluten free. Every single production run is tested, so every batch falls under that 20 PPM.

When a company goes above and beyond to share that warning and the practices they go through to ensure a gluten free product I find it reassuring. This is far better (imo) than the random gluten free label with no warning that the facility also handles wheat products and leaves someone sick with no idea where it came from. Is it possible this product will contain enough gluten to make someone sick? Yes, but is their transparency about their practices that is reassuring to me and in my time eating their crackers I did not find myself sick from them.

I've tried them but to be honest could only have a few because I really dislike them compared to others. Perhaps if they were slathered in melted cheese... :P However, that is just a personal opinion so they are worth a try. Others seem to like them and have found them to be safe. I'm just used to homemade and therefore am a bit spoiled. :)

I do buy Blue Diamond Crackers and like them. But I think (so far) my absolute favorite crackers are Crunchmaster (especially the Multi-Seed Original or Sea Salt).

I like the Blue Diamond crackers, they're great with pepperoni and cheese for a party appetizer! I also, like the CrunchMaster crackers, just the plain ones and I eat them with homemade tuna salad instead of having bread. Wicked yummy, this is making me hungry right now!! 😃😃😃

As mentioned above, Blue Diamond crackers are great with melted cheese and other toppings because they bake well in the oven; however, Crunchmaster crackers are by far the best-tasting gluten-free cracker on the market. I personally prefer the roasted-garlic flavored ones. They usually cost only $2.99 for a good-sized bag, and you can find them with all the regular crackers rather than with the gluten-free varieties.

I love the pecan nut thins and they don't seem to cause me any issue. I like the taste of crunch master but find they have a bit of an aftertaste.

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
