Gluten-Free Pasta In Bulk At A Reasonable Price
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello folks,

I am looking for gluten-free pasta that is available in bulk package and is reasonably priced (including shipping). From my signature, you will notice that I have a ton of restrictions in eating. I am rather new to gluten-free lifestyle (in addition to other food-free) and at the moment, its hard to give up regular comfort food like pasta. I checked many store in the neighborhood and the variety is not that great. Plus, majority of the gluten-free pasta are rice pastas. Due to my medications, I am borderline on blood sugar so my gastroenterologist wants me to avoid carbs.

Googling gave me only Ancient Harvest selling 10lb Quinoa pasta but the shipping is outrageous. I wonder how folks do it. If there is any grocery chain that sells gluten-free pasta in bulk. If it matters, I am close to NYC.

Thanks in advance.

(P.S. - DS, age 4.5, has autism. The plan is get him gluten-free too. So such comfort food will come handy)

Right but the Amazon price tag includes shipping, the same pasta is available on Ancient Harvest site for $30 (Amazon price $63).

Have you tried the pasta before? Just a thought before you go buy a bulk supply. Better to get a sample and have it not agree with ya then it is to buy bulk and then find out.

I normally pick it up at my local health food store for about $3 a box. I spotted a box at walmart once. Stores like safeway have it too.

I have never seen gluten-free pasta in bulk bins...plus I would not buy it due to cross-contamination issues........most gluten-free foods are not in the cheaper price range.....Sam Mills is I think about the cheapest but you may not be able to eat that one...

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
