Took Swig Of Edensoy With Wheat Barley Extract...
0

5 posts in this topic

How scared should I be? I cannot BELIEVE that a soy milk had wheat and barley extract in it!!! Damn Storm (sandy), I grabbed only soymilk that was left on the shelf as an emergency measure. Opened it, had one mouthful and instinctively knew something was up...that was a taste I had not had for probably over 2 yrs....barley malt. Looked at the ingreds and sure enough. You learn something new every day, apparently. Had no idea that a soymilk could be glutened. Shoot. How bad will this be? I have not had a taste of gluten, not even a grain, in over a year. Was never one to get super sick (it ate away at me slowly), but still.

I'd say prepare for a storm :( Always check, lesson learned.

Everyone reacts differently. I feel a reaction within an hour, but it can take up to three days. Time will tell.

Drink lots of water and let us know how you fare. There is no way to prevent every accident so don't be too hard on yourself. We've all been there.

Try not to panic. I know that might sound easier said than done. Everyone's reactions are different, not everyone reacts badly to it. I agree with previous comment, drink plenty of water, it helps to flush toxins out of the body quicker. I have found some gluten and wheat free Slippery Elm capsules which I take to sooth my gut and find it works quite well. I realise that with the storm it may not possible for you to get out at the moment, but it might be worth considering for future use. Take care.

Thank god, nothing major! I have been a bit foggy and tired...but that comes and goes so often (from being undiagnosed until 46!) that I can't tell if it's out of the ordinary or not. So...good lesson. It's not always going to be a major disaster. And read labels, even when it's soy milk.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
