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.

    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.
