Archer Farms Corn Chips
0

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone else experienced problems with Archer Farms (Target brand) corn chips? I picked up some white corn chips by them from Target a few weeks ago. The first time I ate them, I felt sick to my stomach for a few days but didn’t make the conection. When I ate them again a few days ago, I got sick again, and am still feeling “off". Since I’m pretty new to this, I was wondering if this is a gluten reaction? Has anyone else had issues with this brand? The packaging does not list any gluten ingredients, but it doesn’t say Gluten Free either.

I don't generally shop at Target, and am not familiar with the practices of their facilities because of this. I am assuming you read the ingredient list to be sure they don't contain any gluten ingredients before eating them? The only way to find out if there could be a CC issue would be to contact the company via the phone number on the bag/box. An alternative though is that it while it is easy for us to jump on gluten as the culprit for everything that bothers us, this is rarely the case. I find that with corn products I have to be careful. Some I am completely fine with and others make me horribly ill, the only common ingredient in the ones that make me ill is the corn. If you eliminate the possibility of CC via company contact you need to explore the option that another ingredient is bothering you.

Yes, I have considered that it may be corn. However corn pasta, corn flour in bread products, and cooked corn doesn’t bother me. I will contact the company tomorrow!

I can eat some, but not all corn chips. I can't eat popcorn. I can eat corn, as a vegetable, as in on a cob, steamed, what have you. I can eat Mission tortillas and chips. Some random products with corn just don't agree with me. I don't know what it is, but apparently corn and I have some weird sort of messed up relationship. Not that I have the drive, desire, or time to be on the phone like a billion hours.... but I wonder what I'd find out if I researched which which is GMO and which which is not? GAH!!! That sounds paranoid even to me. :ph34r::lol: Anywho, that is early morning (or late night) ramblings and thoughts on that subject.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
