Carrageen

4 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm doing my best to limit iodine in my diet but have noticed carrageen in my toothpaste. Obviously if it was gluten, it would've been in the trash a long time ago. But how much do I need to worry about carrageen in toothpaste?

Also, for those of you who are further down this road than me, how long have you used the thyca diet for? Just interested in other people's experiences. My diet is already quite limited due to the fact that we don't have a fridge or an oven (this is an intentional choice which has been fine up until now. But to reverse this decision means moving countries for us - I'm constantly questioning how long till I have to make that decision!). The upside of this is that we buy fresh fruit and vegetables everyday. Would love some outside perspective on this and also what your wn experiences have been like. Thanks

My toothpaste didn't have it, so don't know the impact. You are spitting, so who knows.

Everyone is different. Carageenan was a big one for me, but may not be for you.

I saw almost immediate relief from new blisters. I was hard-core LI two weeks. Then started adding it back after my sores healed. At 2 months LI (4-5 months gluten-free) i would still break out if I ate too much iodine.

I think carageenan is what kicked off my latest bout but then it seemed to morph into a spontaneous outbreak which is STILL going on. All began on about Sept. 10th. I missed reading the carageenan on the label. :(:wacko::ph34r: Carageenan is from the sea so it might as well be seafood. Major iodine.

I have been more time low iodine in my time gluten-free than not. I do have my thyroid checked to make sure I'm still okay. I was drinking 2 oz. per day of low iodine milk which is farmed locally but as of Sept. 10th I haven't even touched that.

I wouldn't touch any toothpaste that has carageenan in it. Just IMHO.
