      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

I just discovered my buckwheat and another big bag of food are not good for me. What do I do with it? I don't dare have it here, for fear of cross contamination or reacting to it in the air. It is 30+ lbs of food in each bag. It has dollar signs of wasted stuff for me. I guess the food shelf won't take open products.

Donate it to friends/family?

When I got diagnosed I gave my housemates all the gluteny food that had been in my cupboard. We're all students so no one cared in the slightest that some of it had been opened!

Some food banks will take opened items depending on what they are. You can phone around. I was able to give away a bunch of nuts to a food bank run at a church. They put them right in a dish and people were digging in even before I left.

If money is an issue, you could always get in touch with a local celiac or gluten free group and put up a message offering to sell the remaining food for a lower cost. Or to sell it in, say, 1 pound amounts or something like that?

When I was starting out, that's actually how I got many of my gluten-free grains. A woman had been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, bought tons of new flours and starches, and then discovered that it was something else entirely. She sold her open bags for a lower cost and just sent an email about on the local celiac message board. :-)
