Food Made Without Gluten Vs. Food Made In A Dedicated Gluten Free Facility?
0

11 posts in this topic

Is it ok to eat a tortilla chip that is made without gluten but may or may have not been made in a gluten free facility?

If it was made in a facility that made foods with gluten, could the chips be ok to eat?

You say, "could" they be safe? There are three ways they could be safe:

1 - No cross-contamination took place

2 - There was some cc, but it was less than say 5 ppm.

3 - There was a greater level of cross-contamination but it did not reach your own particular threshold.

This is why there is no blanket answer to questions such as this.

Do you allow any gluten into your home? If so, your home is a "shared facility." Do you ever eat out? The restaurant is a shared facility.

My previous comment was a bit terse--sorry.

But I really do believe that the issue of dedicated facilities is way overblown.

I wish that the public and doctors were more aware of this condition. They never check the simple things you say is wring with you and go North instead of south! Lol The plants that process these products need to understand mist of all.

Huh? I'm not sure what you are trying to say, but it does not seem to relate to the topic.

Ah, Peter, don't be so grumpy ;):):D

Translation: The public and doctors should be more aware of celiac; instead of checking the simple things they check for the extreme things and then say nothing is wrong with you. And the food manufacturers most of all need to understand the issues of cross-contamination. (With apologies to ann if I got it wrong :P )

My home is gluten free. Well, over holidays people had some beer. I don't think I could survive any other way. I don't trust restaurants. If I eat out it's always going to be a risk. That my only discernable reaction has come from nuts that should have not come into contact with anything glutinous, but weren't called gluten free, just makes me more concerned about cc.

If you need a gluten free home you may need dedicated facilities too. It all depends on your level of sensitivity. It varies a lot.

It is really easy for those who have a higher level to think that those of us with a lower level take things too far. I would probably be the same way myself.

The only way to find out seems to be trial and error.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
