2 Questions Abt Food Labeling And Baking
0

4 posts in this topic

hello,,

have a question about the labeling of food that seems to be gluten free but has got that "made in a factory that handles"!!! label ... ive seen loads of things that look ok but have this "tag" on the end. are they ok, is the manufacturer just protecting themselves or should i be avoiding them.. :unsure:

i have to say since starting this diet ( even though ive slipped up a few times) i havent had one "dark" or anxious thought and the only time ive had gerd was when i had a smoothie that contained strawberries

.rash on hands is just dry skin now- hopefully it will clear up soon. the rash on face isn,t any better though, - im looking into gluten free cosmetics now.

the other question is about all the different types of gluten free flours there are. all the recipes ive looked at seem to use abt 3 or four different mixes of flour. ive bought a general gluten free flour , rice flour and cornmeal. if i wanted a simple an easy ( hate cooking) flatbread,shortbread or scone mix could i get away just replacing normal flour for the gluten free flour :) .

It depends on what your sensitivity level is. It could be that they had a dedicated line for the product, but they also produced gluten containing stuff in another area.

I've got no idea with the backing. I'm no baker lol.

I have no problems with products from shared facilities. Most are, even if they don't say so (the disclosure is voluntary). Is your house 100% gluten-free? If not, then you live in a shared facility.

thanks,

im off work this week so ive just had a major clear out and clean up of kitchen, so now i can say i am totally gluten and dairy free :) . that answer helps a lot( i mean that, im not being sarcastic lol) :D , i guess im just gonna have to try them and see how things go. i did think i wouldnt be able to, or shouldnt be eating them. ive discovered these moreish spicy chana dahl snacks made of chick peas - they are lovely yum! so i,ll try some baking 2morrow - if its anything like monday when i was making soup - i,ll be having another major clean up of the kitchen :(

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
