Olive Oil?

7 posts in this topic

I have a bottle of Rachael Ray Everyday EVOO and I know olive oil is supposed to be gluten free but the bottle doesn't say anything. Has anyone ever seen an olive oil with gluten or should they all be safe?

Basically, pretty much anything you buy that's only one ingredient is safe. The only single ingredient

products you should be concerned about are flours and starches, as you'll want to make sure that

they are milled and packaged safely. But a bag of salt, bottle of olive oil, things like that, really have

no opportunity for being contaminated in any way. Just watch out for blends, or mixes, like if a bottle

of olive oil were 'seasoned', and had solids in it, then I would double check the product. If it's just olive

oil? You're good.

Don't worry, the paranoia will pass and you'll calm down. It gets easier. ;)

There is a basic concept in labels that a label must not be misleading. It is considered misleading to label a product such as pure olive oil as "gluten-free" because it is not a distinguishing characteristic of that specific product. A label may say something like "Olive oil is naturally gluten-free" or "This oil, like all olive oil, is gluten-free." This rarely appears on labels, since it provides no upside, but may discourage uniformed customers who wrongly believe "gluten-free" means "tastes like crap."

I find your 'uniformed' typo amusing. :P

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
