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

    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
