      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

I've been trying to find one that's safe but so far I'm having no luck. Any suggestions? And yes, please don't confuse it with coconut palm sugar, they are different products :P

Not sure why the ones you have seen are not "safe". I didn't know what it was, so I googled it. The 2 kinds I looked at listed the sugar as the only ingredient.

The palm sugars I buy are always gluten free. I purchase them at an Asian store here in Canada.

What are the brand names? I'll try and find an Asian grocery around where I live though and see what they have, that's a good idea.

Asian stores are great for so many things, such as very fine rice flour, which is a lot finer than those in regular grocery stores. Not to mention cheaper!

One of the palm sugars in my pantry is Cock brand and contains only 100% pure palm sugar. The other is in Asian which I cannot read. Sorry! But the ingredient lists only 100% palm sugar.

I buy all sorts of excellent noodles there, too, such as mung bean, purple yam, cornstarch, and so on. Right now I probably have at least 12 different kinds of noodles from the Asian store. And they are dirt cheap. :)

Don't think that's a language :P also that brand is made from coconut palm. Seems like everything is. Argh.

It is a language - there are a few "letters" that look like the brand that are separate; the other letters are formed into a sentence that I cannot decipher.

But it states that it simply contains palm sugar so I would think whatever the brand is (!!) would be safe. Same with the Cock brand which I mentioned above, if you can locate it.

The terms "palm sugar" and "coconut palm sugar" seem to be used interchangeably. The Cock brand is from the coconut palm.

It's ok, the labeling gets really confusing. I found one that says it is from the palmyra palm but it still calls it coconut palm sugar :blink:

    • Biopsy completed
      I was diagnosed with blood tests in October with celiac.  My numbers were all so positive and high, and therefore, elected not to go through with the biopsy.  He diagnosed with my celiac then. However aftrr 3 months of pain , I did go though wiith the biopsy.  My doctor said I didn't even need to go back on gluten which was fabulous for me.  He said with the numbers that I have, the pain I am in, he has no doubts I sill have damage.  So, that is what I did.  No gluten challenge here. I was happy that virtually everything was good. Stomach was great. However, I did have "duodenal mucosal changes" -- which were "supicious' for celiac.  Now we wait for the biopsy samples to come back.  
    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life!

      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
