Campbell's Skillet Sauces
0

8 posts in this topic

I have a 12 year old silent celiac. (Only found due to her Hashimotos and a great pediatrician) She has been gluten-free a year this month! I made chicken marsala tonight with gluten free rice pasta and the Campbell's skillet sauce. It was actually a new brand of gluten-free pasta...rice plus flax. I couldn't see anything on the skillet sauce that wasn't gluten-free. She had a tummy ache and diarreah after it. Because she usually doesn't react, I find myself OVERREACTING wondering if it was something I gave her. Has anyone had this and did ok? Could it be flax? She only had D once and is fine now...acting perfectly normal. If it really is gluten-free, I recommend that to everyone...it was yummy! I guess it could have been lunch. We went to Hardees and got her a burger wrapped in lettuce. I go in to make the people change gloves and put it on a new paper. I have never had issues with it before. But that was 6 hours before her D. Who knows?

according to the campbell's people, the skillet sauces are *not* gluten-free. this may be the source of your daughter's problem.

Oh thanks! I called them today and they confirmed it was NOT gluten free. I asked her to look and tell me what it could have been since all I can do is read labels. She pulled it up and said it could have been the modified food starch. Thankfully, I have read from Peter enough to know that is NOT true in America. So I told her that would not be true since labeling would require them to say wheat. She put me on hold and then came back and said I was right. (Thanks Peter) She said it doesn't have wheat but that they are not required to put every ingredient. They have 2% they do not release due to "secret recipes". Apparently, it is barely, rye, or oats. Who knows. She didn't even know. All she knew was it was NOT gluten free. I told her about my dd reaction and she is reporting it. Just label it NOT GLUTEN free under the ingredients! You don't have to tell me any secrets!

secret ingredient or not if it contains wheat, I think they should report it -- isn't that why we now have the new labeling laws???? I wish these companies would get their heads out of --------------- & just report the ingredients...

On another note flax can cause to much roughage for many so at another time that may also cause the Big D & belly aches....

Barley (malt), rye, and oats did not make the top 8 allegergens list that they MUST post.

As time passes, celiacs on a gluten free diet tend to react more strongly to cross contamination or glutenings.

What else should we be concerned with? I wish more people knew that this is an extreme problem!

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • 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
