Which Food Made Me Sick?

11 posts in this topic

I got super sick yesterday. All I ate that was different were 3 things.At about 1:00. I had 2 Kinnickinick oreo cookies, gluten-free, then at about 4:45 I had a quaker rice cake that had the cheese powder on it. I also had a low fat Baby Bell Cheese. At 5:00 it all exploded and I took 7 imodium to make it stop. I had to drive my little one a half hour down the freeway a half hour later. We stopped once. It was miserable. Today I still haven't gone, but I'm not exploding. So what do you think it was? I hate not knowing. I'm thinking about returing the cheese and cookies.

It might be the Quaker rice cakes. I got hit bad by those a few months back.

I don't think all of the Quaker rice cakes are gluten-free. I can't say for sure since we never buy them. Used to be they were not but then they did come out with some gluten-free ones. I would check to see if yours say gluten-free on them.

The quaker bag says gluten free on it. Do you think there is something in the lowfat babybell or is there a fat or something I'm sensitive to in those cookies? Kinnikinnick doughnuts make me sick too. So I'm wondering if the same ingredient is in this kind of oreo like chocolate cookie. Anyone have some insight? Do you think the quaker gluten free cracker got cross contaminated somewhere? I'll stick with the plain ones I get and never get sick.

i'd say it was the cookies if their donuts have set you off before.

I try to only have one new thing per week so that I can know what got me. Based on my reading of others' reactions, I'd guess Quaker. I can't eat any of those.

If it's actually gluten that caused the reaction, Quaker would be my top and only suspect. Kinnikinnick is very dependable and the cheese is highly unlikely to come in contact with gluten.

If it was something else, who knows? You'd have to figure that one out.

I vote for the rice cakes. I stopped buying them too.

(It would be nice to know if some companies take the time to read our discussions!)

I agree with Richard that Kinnikinnick is super reliable. But something in the doughnuts makes me sick, perhaps not gluten. But it gives me the runs. So maybe that same ingredient was in the cookies. I've eaten these rice cakes before with out issue. There are so many ingredients that it is hard to believe that something in there did not make me sick. I can eat garlic in moveration, but even the onion powder has me wondering. Yes I need to stick to the only one new thing rule. I think someone else will finish the cheese and rice cakes. I returned the cookies. I'm baffled that I can eat the grahm Kinnikinnick cookies no problem.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
