Does anyone else experience this -- eating too much gluten-free processed products making them sick? I felt awful after Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and I cooked the entire thing myself. I was very careful about gluten. Had gluten-free stuffing and gluten-free pie crusts, a gluten-free turkey and a host of other things. About a half hour after dinner I was feeling terrible. No one else was sick.

I think I overdid it on the gluten-free products, which I rarely eat.

mmm... the gluten free items are good as a treat every once in a while, however if you over eat them then yeah. The only ones i can eat on a regular basis is my corn tortillas and my chex. I cannot eat pasta more than once every other week, or else.

More than likely you're sensative to one of the flours that is used in those. I for one cannot handle bean flours without becoming a balloon.

I found this too.

I now do rice pasta couple of times a week and the odd gluten-free brownie or muffin.

I was literally sick 2 weeks in to gluten-free. I think it was the corn for me,along with extra salt fat and sugar.

Great as treats, wholefoods might be better everyday.

Good luck

I have found that anything that has cellulose in it makes me sick. I have to watch the labels very carefully. Even my toothpaste got me.

Good point. There are flours and other things, such as xanthan gum, in gluten-free goods that are not typically found in other food products.

Yeah, I think the xanthan gum makes me ill, too. Which makes me wonder why I own a $10 bag of it. :(

I think that they can add up. I'm one of the super sensitive ones and don't eat very many at all.

I personally sensitive to the "gums" in gluten free packaed foods - xanthan, guar, acacia, etc. if I eat very many packages foods or too often then I get stomach cramping and spend way too much time in the bathroom. I highly recommend curing the packaged foods out and eating only whole foods for a couple of weeks and then trying the packaged foods just a little at a time and one product at a time. That is how I've determined my level of sensitivity to them.

I can't handle the corn and extra sugar in many gluten-free processed foods. Just lost my shop bought choc chip muffins. It isn't like a gluten reaction for me, mostly reflux and D.

For me it is the fats and dairy and anything that makes IC flare up. I have to live by the IC diet as well. It is a challenge.

Most of them have soy, or dairy, or potato flour (nightshade), or grape juice as a sweetner. All of those cause me problems. You can react to any ingredient and develop an intolerance to it.

I'm new to this site. My son is allergic to gluten (among many other things - but Dr said he MUST eliminate gluten and peanuts!) (not a Celiac patient). We just found out. He's 9. His allergic reactions show up as severe sinus issues and intestinal issues (which I won't get specific about).

Anyway, going gluten-free, I have found myself allowing him to have things that I normally never would (like gluten-free tortilla chips at lunch, or gluten-free cereal, which has less fiber, protein and more sugar than I usually allow, in the morning). I don't know if it's his insides getting all "cleaned out" or if he's having a problem with the extra sugar and fat.... but he is experiencing some new intestinal issues. This has given me even more to think about. yikes and thank you for all your info.
