In Topic: I Need A Safe Rice. Reacting To Lundberg Time, And Time Again.

14 June 2013 - 04:08 PM

I have been experiencing severe symptoms throughout the week.  I'll wake up, have a small amount of energy, eat rice, and literally pass out/fall asleep sitting up.  It's almost like I'm being hit by a tranquilizer and this is one of the symptoms I get to something I shouldn't be eating.  However, rice has no salicylates, and I'm rinsing it well, it isn't sulphited, so... I don't understand why I'm reacting to it.  I have been "awake" less than 5 hours a day ever since I began trialing this rice.  It was DEFINITELY getting me, and getting me good.


when i was looking for a gluten-free protein shake for my daughters, my naturopath had two to offer me:  one rice-based and one bean-based.  she said she had to switch to the bean-based because when she would drink the rice one, should would get so sleepy that she would almost fall asleep in her chair while she was with patients.  i don't think she explained to me the reason for it, only that she couldn't tolerate it.  so maybe it's not a contamination issue?  i wonder if it's a blood-sugar issue as white rice is a 89/100.

Oh, dear. I had a Larabar an hour ago and now I have brain fog. Now I have to remove Larabars from my "totally safe" list. :(

depending on your sensitivity level, it could indeed by the larabar. from their website, i get the impression that they are produced in a facility with gluten-containing ingredients: "GLUTEN FREE/CELIACS LÄRABAR®, über® and Jŏcalat® are Gluten Free. They have no gluten-containing ingredients, and we have manufacturing controls in place to ensure that there are no cross-contact concerns. We also periodically verify our practices using Gliadin gluten testing."

In Topic: Favorite Protein/power Bar?

Another I really like is the Simply Bar, available on (can't say the name, but it rhymes with cramazon.com ). These are high protein, low cal, easy on the stomach and very durable (they don't melt in your backpack). They are very mild tasting--not thrilling, but not objectionable tasting either. But if I want a more delicious bar, I go for a Larabar or a Kind Bar.

here is the info from the simply bar website: http://www.thesimplybar.com/faq

  • Is The Simply Bar certified gluten-free?

    • Yes. The Simply Bar is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) and is manufactured in a gluten-free environment to prevent cross-contamination. We follow strict manufacturing practices and screen all our products using R5-Elisa. At ‹5ppm of gluten, our delicious protein packed bars are both safe for our celiac consumers, as well as an excellent snack option. View our gluten free certification.
  • Is The Simply Bar facility Gluten-Free?

    • Yes. The Simply Bar facility is maintained within a gluten-free environment. It should be noted that our facility also manufactures oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free. However, there is some concern whether the oats are grown in a field that at some point grew other gluten containing grains. Rest assured, our oats are tested for gluten before and after each usage.
