My family USED to eat a lot of rice pilaf. Ever since I went gluten free I have only made it a few times for just them to eat. When I looked it up online to see if they have other types of rice that does not contain gluten it showed the spanish rice has NO gluten so we bought a few boxes and I made some last night with dinner. It was great.. until later that night I was in sooo much stomach pain and sweating really bad! I didn't eat anything else that day that I was not already sure was safe since I knew I was going to make that rice and I wanted to make sure I was ok with it. Has any one else had this problem? I just got to thinking that maybe it was cross contaminated because that company makes so many other types of rice products that DO contain gluten. There is no warning on the box saying anything about how its processed in the facility and it doesn't say "gluten free" It just says in the allergy section that it does not contain gluten ingredients..

Any input i'd appreciate.. Thanks!

Companies who list their products as containing no gluten or free gluten have no obligation to verify for no gluten. In the US, there is no legal criterial for labeling a product gluten free. All labeling is voluntary at this time.

In this case, it might be best to contact the company and inquire about shared equipment or shared facility. I also would like to add that if you are new to the diet, many foods can be troublesome, until some healing can take place.

Thanks Lisa - I just found my mistake.. I was also looking up carolina rice on the same day that I looked up Near East and was picturing that website when I was remembering that the spanish rice was gluten free... (dumb!!) but I just went to the FAQ section on Near East and read "While Near East is proud to offer a variety of grain dishes to suit many needs and tastes, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are gluten free. Because our products are processed in facilities alongside other ingredients that contain gluten, there is always a slight risk of cross contact"

So lesson learned.. I must be very sensitive. I will just stay away!!

It's very easy to do rice from scratch. When I make Spanish rice I toast the rice in a little olive oil until it's lightly browned. You can use white or brown rice for this but brown will take longer to cook. From there, the most simple way to do this is to sub in some form of tomato product for part of the water. You can use salsa, tomato sauce (we like the seasoned Rotel), canned tomatoes or even a dab of tomato paste. Add chili powder if you want it spicier. You can also add a variety of vegetables. I usually add red and green peppers and lots of onion to help lower the carb count of the overall dish. I have diabetes so have to watch the carbs. But peas, corn and carrots work well in here too. If you are using raw veggies, you should add them at the start. But if you are using cooked ones, then stir them through at the end so that they don't get overcooked. You can also add any kind of cooked, dried beans. And if you want this as a main dish then add cooked ground meat or chopped cooked chicken. I use a cup of rice to two cups of liquid unless the package says otherwise. Recently I bought a huge bag of Basmati brown rice from Costco. It requires a little more handling but it's worth it to me because of the cheap price. You have to rinse it well and let it soak for a while. White rice usually takes 20 minutes to cook and brown rice takes anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      sella.........in 11 years gluten free, I have never been glutened by natural flavorings. I know some of the older literature on Celiac says it may contain gluten but they rarely do.  For more info, I have put in a link that briefly explains how it works with labeling for those.  The link is dated 2013 but I have yet to read any updates that list any pertinent changes to this.  It will take a few years or longer for a person with Celiac to really learn how to read a label to the point where they feel comfortable with eating that food but I guarantee you'll be a food expert! http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/gluten-free-foods/gluten-free-nutrition/gluten-questions-and-answers/natural-flavorings/ As to your other question, yes, Celiac most certainly causes balance and neuro issues.  I suffered from extreme vertigo for years, which disappeared after being on the gluten-free diet for a while.  I had no idea it was connected to celiac disease but it completely disappeared on the diet.  I also never had anxiety issues but now, on the rare occasion I sustain a hit, the anxiety is bad.  It disappears after about a week.  This is well know to Celiac's but many doctors still don't get all the symptoms we suffer from, that are related to gluten ingestion.  Frustrating!
    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      SugarCube, I saw your other posting today.  I can not believe that I missed your original posting!  Maybe I was doing something super fun that week (oh, my parents were visiting!).   Your celiac blood panel was positive and you had intestinal damage that was caused by both celiac disease and Giardia?  After treating the Giardia, your CD resolved or went into remission?  Are you consuming a diet containing gluten still?  Have you had a follow-up biopsy?   I read your link to the study, but that feature just one patient (a child).  Have you found any other larger studies?  Inquiring minds want to know!       
    • Week late aftershock!?
      Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder like lupus, MS or R.  Arthritis except the trigger for a flare-up is known -- gluten.  Unfortunately, no one knows what causes lupus or MS to flare-up (lots of theories, but no definitive answers).  For some celiacs, a flare-up is just a day or so.  For others a week or months!  I can vouch for months!  My antibodies were sky high after a glutening last summer six weeks after the occurrence.  I also became lactose intolerant for three months!  I was so bummed!   Plus, my symtoms were so different from when I was diagnosed.   I am sorry that you were glutened.  I hope you feel better soon.   Oh, I tend to alter my gluten-free diet to include soft easy-to-digest foods after a glutening.  Maybe this will help you.   
    • Emergen-c All Flavors gluten-free
      I hope this information is still accurate because according to their website they do not actually test the end product. http://www.emergenc.com/misc/faq Are your products free of Gluten? We do not use Gluten during the manufacturing process. However, we are unable to confirm its presence or absence as the end product is not tested for gluten
    • Week late aftershock!?
      I got glutened a little over a week ago.  It took me a couple days to feel the effects but they came in the form or diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, and anxiety.  During this time I also developed a sinus infection.  It took a few days then I started feeling better.  Now a little over a week after I got glutened I'm having another set of diarrhea, nausea and fatigue.   This has happened to me before and I always assumed I was glutened again but I have been eating at home and very careful.  I don't think it is another glutening but maybe when I feel better I start eating more that might aggravate my gut? or do you think it might have to do with my sinus infection?  I didn't take anything but mucinex.  Does this "aftershock" happen to anyone else?

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
