A friend who is lactose intolerant (which I am gluten and lactose intolerant) suggested I try Tofutti's Lactose Free Better than Cream Cheese. She said it tasted really good, so I thought I'd give it a try. At the store I read the ingredients: no lactose, good. Nothing dangerously wheat sounding in there, good.
Well, this is before I find out maltodextrin could possibly be a non-no. Last night I have some on crackers and it is REALLY good! Before I get past the third one, my stomach is experiencing that very familiar "rumble". I run to the kitchen and see the "maltodextrin" on the label. I'd thought maltodextrin was a "maybe" if it was made in the US, which it looks like it is. Even the web says it's gluten-free. But I was on the potty all night and this morning isn't any better.
Has anyone else reacted to this before? :blink:
I have tried their products more than once and have gotten bowel discomfort lasting for a day. Sometimes it doesn't seem to bother me and then if I have it very often I do not feel well at all so end up throwing it out.
