I was wondering if anyone has noticed GI problems when eating "gluten-free" foods (a la Amy's brand, which uses mostly rice flour)? (pain, bloating, the infamous 'D' - up to 2 days after eating)
I've used bob's red mill flours to make biscuits, pancakes, etc. and haven't had much of an issue (unless I eat more than one or two portions in a day).
I don't use these products frequently (maybe once a month - if that!), I eat real foods otherwise (fruits, veggies, protein, fats).

Gluten free January 2012.
Tyramine free June 2012 - slowly getting a few foods back at a time.... scratch that
Low Histamine April 2013 - I swear this better be the last time I have to restrict my diet because giving up chocolate is the final straw
Iodine free briefly fall 2012
If ever you are feeling like you’re tired, And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you, And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
I ask of you a very simple question, Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only, Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.
Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

I next to never eat anything soy (due to thyroid stuff)... so I didn't think of that being an issue possibly.
But even w/the Bob's Red Mill - I can eat say 2 biscuits or 2 pancakes - but more than that & I get the same reaction.
I don't eat oats (never liked 'em anyway), so if the CC is the issue, maybe that.
It's an issue enough, I simply won't be buying that pizza again. I had Glutino's pizza (w/real cheese) & it was good, but same issue and serious blood sugar reactions.
I know I can't eat any rice pasta b/c of the sugar issues I get from even half a serving (with a meat sauce, for example) even. Maybe, I need to stay away from all rice??
That means the only 'grain' I'll be eating is corn products, as others I don't like, can't eat, or don't settle well (like quinoa).
