Had the grill been used for anything with gluten? It is best for us to use foil under anything on a grill that is not dedicated gluten free. Another possibility- was there distilled vinegar in the salmon sauce? If so you could be one of the minority of celiacs who reacts to distilled gluten grains.
No, the grill is practically brand new, and nary a bun has touched it this summer! Also, my husband got this special tray for putting things like fish and scallops on. But, when I came home tonite, I pulled the bottle of sauce out of the fridge, and distilled vinegar was the second ingredient on the list.
I have a few questions for you!
1. This wasn't the first time we had used the sauce this summer. I've had it at least two or three times before, without feeling itchy or that rumbly tummy. but I am wondering. Last December, when I went on my little cookie binge, it took 3 nights of munching on my sister's cookies before ingesting gluten caused a noticeable reaction. Does it make sense to you that once I've gotten to the point where I have been mostly healed, that I appear to be more "tolerant", and it might take repeated exposures for me to noticeably feel ill effects? Supporting this idea is that I had the leftover salmon for lunch on Tuesday... and this morning had a couple of new itchy areas that definitely had nothing to do with bug bites!
2. Distilled gluten grains.... distilled vinegar... I thought vinegar was made from apples (white) or wine (red)? I ate salt and vingear flavored almonds over the weekend too....... Ok I can live without the sauce and the flavored stuff. Tell me, will red wine vinegar still be ok???
thanks ravenwood, I appreciate your help. Oh and guess what, even tho I'm way beyond the point where antibody or biopsy would have a hope in heck of being positive, I am having a DQ analysis done soon! should be interesting....
