Salicylic Acid-Tomatoes
0

11 posts in this topic

On this page http://salicylatesensitivity.com/about/food-guide/vegetables/ it listed FRESH tomatoes as being moderate in salicylic acid. Right now I've only been eating foods no higher than moderate really for the most part....under VERY high ...it lists tomatoes....what exactly is the difference? By Fresh Tomatoes do they mean the produce section at the grocery store or what? Because it doesn't say CANNED or anything under the very high section..so i'm confused. Asking especially since I have a cold right now and tomato is very good for you...

I would assume that "Fresh" means just that... fresh. Could cooking it by chance take some of it out? No clue...

I think because cooking takes a lot of the water out of tomatoes, that cooked are just more concentrated. I know for a long while I could still eat fresh tomatoes, but these got to be too much too (not salicylates though).

I too quit eating fresh tomatoes because of the high acid. Even canned affected me. Is that salicylates? I don't know, but tomatoes are on my "no eat" list!

Shroomie is right when she says cooking makes them more concentrated--I had a strong reaction when I cooked some down and made a sauce.

There is a place near here (Near being relative - it's about 50 miles away) that does a killer gluten-free pizza, or so I've been told. I actually spoke to the owner who has a celiac family member and I know it is safe. I haven't tried it yet because I am scared to try tomato sauce.

BUT!!! My healthfood store sells gluten-free pizza crust. (I think it's Udi's ?) So I am going to make a white pizza using things I know I can have. Sunflower oil, Daisy brand cottage cheese, garlic, ground bison, broccoli, and cheddar.

Yeah, I know it's not the same, but at least it's sort of pizza-like. And I have always liked white pizza anyway.

Other than that, I never cared for tomatoes much anyway. I hardly ever had a BLT, it was always a BL. Picked them out of my salads too.

But there must be something you can use instead of tomatoes in the things you used to like tomatoes in. If Bartfull The Lousy Cook can think up a pizza substitute, I'm sure someone who knows their way around the kitchen can figure something out. A little imagination and a spirit of adventure are all that is needed. :)

I guess the problem with pizza is the cheese. Not sure if i have dairy intolerance or if it's just me healing right now. If I do a stool test for casein do i need to be eating and drinking it for anything to show up?

The tomato sauce substitute has been done:

:3. TOMATO SUBSTITUTE (Red sauce)

"Though nothing really tastes like tomatoes, you can get some of the

properties with the right combination of ingredients. Carrots and beets

pureed together in a blender actually make a very red sauce. Add citric

and ascorbic acid, and you'll have the basis for Nomato.

The Nomato sauce ingredients are basically:

Carrots, water, beets, onion, lemon juice, salt, garlic, ascorbic acid

(vitamin C) and herbs." Thanks to RiceGuy. I now can't have the citric acid :(

Of course, I can't do beets so it doesn't really matter to me :P

I'll stick with white sauce thanks. Beets make my skin crawl :blink: My middle school that i went too (also an elementary) used to searve them very often. I would trade them off for something else.

Though i about had a fit earlier. I was coming back from a late class and i saw a pizza dilevery guy... who decided to use the elevator.... TT_TT i miss the convienence of it i guess.

I have some udi's white bread in the freezer. I've yet to gather the courage to try it.

Can't toast it either. Mother decided to 'try' her gluteny bread in my toaster :angry: She 'supposably' cleaned it. -sigh- at least i have a fry pan i could use to toast it up, but still <_< /end random tangent

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
