Monday I went grocery shopping after getting some heavy duty painkillers at the Dr for a separate issue. (don't worry, I didn't drive) Anyway, never shop for gluten free groceries when you are stoned. I bought two boxes of Kellogs Cocoa Krispies. In my head they were Moms Best Coco Krispies, which are gluten free. Kelloggs however, contains barley malt flavoring.
Tuesday I ate two huge bowls (still apparently under the influence? I dunno)
A couple of hours later my daughter comes screaming "Mom! Did you eat these? They have gluten in them!" 3 celiacs in the house, we know our stuff. Unless we are drugged.
But...I had ZERO reaction. Not an ache, or pain or itch or even a fart. All 3 of us had positive blood work and biopsies done 3 years ago, so I know it didn't go away...(in my dreams). And any time I have had any cross contamination with wheat, I barf my guts out. An accidental restaurant enchilada that was "so good I cant believe it is corn! (because it was wheat!") sent me to the hospital for three days last year. Is it possible for a celiac to be bothered by only certain forms of gluten? Is barley gluten less potent? Or is malt flavoring superheated or something? I'm kind of baffled...
