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

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
