Hi Razzell
I have Vitacoco and Cocofina.
Have never had it before and when I first tasted it thought Eeww! - slightly odd and rather sweet :blink:.
It must be an acquired taste because 24 hours later it was Yum! - give me more :D .

Did someone mention fructose intolerance? Could be that. It's a common thing for us within 2 years of going gluten-free while everything heals. A total mind game to suss out, though, since its in, like, everything.

Try plain white rice as your only carb, no sweet things at all, and see if it helps. If it does, PM me and I can suggest some low fructose stuff and dextrose sources that would be safe. Sounds like you're close to that diet already, too.

Just do a search on the boards here. A lot of people say fructose gave them problems initially. But not most people for sure.

I think we sometimes forget that these boards do not represent the majority of Celiacs. Most of them are not on forums and boards.

So I think to state as a fact that "It's a common thing for us within 2 years of going gluten-free" is a bit misleading.

If you have read a good article about that, then we would love a link to it.

Well, I'm not a doctor. And most folks go off gluten and do just fine. But if you want robust studies on food intolerances connected to leaky gut, I would also love very much to see them. I'm desperate for serious medical research into the subject. Until then, we have outlier anecdotal evidence. It's not ideal.

The fact is that fructose malabsorption issues are still not well understood, and their connection to the increased intestinal permeability brought on by damage due to gluten in undiagnosed celiacs has never been a direct subject of scientific research. I do wish they'd get in the ball with it, honestly. Until then we celiacs with odd problems like this are left to look to each other for hunches and advice yo go to our doctors with.

I'm taking my hunches to the Mayo Clinic next month for testing, and have sent away for genetic testing as well to look for other possible causes, since what I have is unusually severe (though two others here have told me they had the same going gluten-free). But I wouldn't have known where to start without folks here passing along their ideas and experiences.

All of which is to say, yes, I totally agree with you.

I like Amy and Brian Coconut Juice brand the best. Blue Monkey is second. If you consider it tastes like water, it is wonderfully sweet. However, if you are expecting soda like flavor, it will be a big disappointment!

If you have a dry mouth your food won't have as much taste, and dry mouth can be caused by vitamin deficiencies in a few of the B's and A. Vitamins take a long time to build back up if you're low, especially if you have damaged intestines.

Also, I could only find a local gluten-free buckwheat flour, everything else had cc.
