Does Goat Chevre Have Gluten?
0

12 posts in this topic

I ate some in the salad bought from Trader Joe's, and got symptoms again which I didn't have since I ate gluten free. Although I have to admit, that I also ate Trader Joe's vegetable chips, which are made in the same facility as wheat, but I really love them, and I hope, that my sensitivity is not that bad :rolleyes:

Anyway, the reason I suspect chevre is because I suspect it made me sick before a few times too. And it makes me feel bad for two days or so.

I've been limited to goat cheeses only for years & can't recall a chevre w/ gluten. When I get chevre, it's usually at Trader Joe's, but that's its own pkg, not in a salad.

Could goat casein itself be the problem? Or anything else besides the chips? Maybe a suspect in the dressing?

The Detective Game can be such a pain. Hope you get it figured out.

Unless that salad discloses its facility - meaning you can see if wheat/gluten is processed there - I wouldn't have risked the salad. That's just my personal pov. I have a "thing" about salads....my personal neuroses. They skeeve me out unless they have a dedicated gluten-free line.

That said, I eat goat cheese all the time, and from TJ's - no problem.

If you've noticed a problem with goat cheese on more than one occasion, I concur with the above. A problem with casein or goat cheese???

Any problems with cow's milk/cheese? Just wondering if you have a casein issue. The last couple of times that you have had the goat cheese, have you had it prepared the same way (like always in a salad . . . hence, tom's question of a suspect dressing?)

Was this a salad you made yourself and added cheese or was it a purchased (already-prepared) salad?

Since you've been gluten free, have you had the veggie chips?

Thank you so much for your thoughts. Trader Joe's had a salad to try there, and then I bought ingredients and made some at home too.Hmm, maybe I do react to goat's milk...As far as cow's dairy goes, I eat little of it - if I happen to eat more cheese, it doesn't feel that good, so I generally avoid it, although I eat butter. My dad is actually allergic to cow's milk from the store, but the funny thing is he can have some fresh raw milk from the country without any ill effects.

My salad dressing at home is always the same - apple cider vinegar, Bragg's aminos and olive oil, but I am not sure what they used in the store tasting version.

I guess, I will try after a few days just a bit of chevre again and see.

Yes, and the same day as I had chevre, unfortunately, so it could be either one. :o

You tried a sample at the store? There's your problem, most likely. Who knows how they made that salad. Did they rinse some of the veggies in the same colander they just made some noodles for another sample? Were there some croutons in it that may have been eaten or hidden before you saw it? What if they used malt cinegar in thier salad dressing? You get the idea.

You could also have a problem with dairy.

Watch the shared facility with wheat and see if you react to other products with that label. I do. It limits a lot of things but my life is better now...and goat cheese chevre is a favorite and no gluten reaction....but give me a shared facility and I will give you all kinds of ugly symptoms. I vote you are reacting to shared facility stuff...and you can easily figure that out by eating a couple more things in a shared facility and see if you react.

Yes, I guess I should get used to, that I can't try anything like that in the store anymore.

To tell you the truth I still don't feel very well, but much better now, so I probably won't try it anytime soon. But when I do, I will try chevre first since it is less likely to be the culprit. I hoped that I wouldn't be that sensitive, but I guess that won't be the case...

Thank you all. I tried some chevre recently again, and felt totally fine after, so i have to conclude, that it was the veggie chips, that were made in the same facility as wheat stuff, which means, that eating will be much harder for me than I expected. :(

I don't miss gluten at all suprisingly, but I do miss the convenience, when I am not at home.

I wouldn't say all "made in the same facility" foods are equal. I know I eat foods processed onthe same equipment (because it's so common and I only screen out the obvious) - but don't react to all of them.

So, I'd venture to say THOSE chips are out. Other foods from other manufacturers MAY be ok.

Or not.

Do what makes you feel safe and well.
