I made my own mayo without soy, and used it today with tuna. I'm super queasy. Could it be the tuna? Or the Canola oil?

I don't think I have a problem corn. I eat chicken tacos on corn tortillas without a problem...

Have you considered that it might be the actual can?  I have a severe nickel allergy as well as other things and nickel from the can leaches out into the food and causes severe stomach upset, a bit like being "Glutened" but more painful, the first time it happened was with canned salmon, I thought I had food poisening but Hubby had some and he was fine..I am also intolerant of some jewellery, so if you are too it might be something to consider...First post!!!

It could be a histamine problem, tuna converts histidine to histamine if it's not fresh from the ocean, if you're sensitive as me that might be it

 

 

Hi Kiki!

Not sure if I already posted this....I also cannot do canned tuna -- even packed in water -- due to intolerance to histamine containing and inducing foods.

 

 

 

I have to echo these two. I also have a histamine intolerance (HIT) and canned fish and shellfish will cause symptoms. Fresh caught fish is

okay as it is lower in histamine..

 

In discussion with my GI doc last week, it can resolve in time after avoiding high histamine foods for several weeks, knocking down the level of histamine in your body and then trying small amounts to test your tolerance level. 

 

HIT occurs when the gut is impaired and the enzyme that regulates histamine (DAO) is not being produced.

In severe cases it can take some time -- I gave up histamines in late November -- still can't tolerate any histamine containing or histamine inducing foods.

 

I can however tolerate moderate exercise in a bit warmer temps than ever before :)

:) Good point, Ski. I suspect it will take me months (Doc said give it 6 months) but the "average" person may be able to tolerate low levels

in 4 weeks (or so the  HIT lit says). Like anything else with celiac disease, this could be an  individual thing.

Some tunas have broth in them and sometimes broths contain gluten in the form of barley or wheat. So you have to be careful not to get the ones that have broth in them because the indregients just say broth.

If there is wheat in a broth, the label must list WHEAT as an ingredient. I have never seen barley listed on a tuna can, but I suppose there

is always a first.
