In Topic: Stadium Nachos..glutened?

26 September 2014 - 08:51 AM

The server might have also handled hot dog buns or something else that cross contaminated the chips

If dairy (and particularly lactose) is an issue, stadium cheeze is not going to be your friend.  Check out the percentages for "processed" American and Velveeta in particular, since those would be closest to any kind of nacho sauce:  http://www.stevecarp...percentages.htm
 
Fat is another issue.  It can upset your ailing tummy as much as any forbidden food.  Dairy and fat together?  They're like a dynamic duo of very delicious evil. 
 
I would say that it's unusual for corn chips or nacho cheeze to have gluten in it.  I've seen "modified food starch" without a specified source, but I've never seen actual wheat flour.  That said, I too don't like to eat anything I can't read first.  When coworkers bring a snack to work, I feel like a horrible person but I always have to ask, "Can I see the label?"  Some people scoff at chain restaurants or cafes like Starbucks, but I love being able to see all the ingredients on the website before I even THINK about going in.  I simply don't trust people to know whether a food is gluten free or not.


In Topic: Which Symptoms Healed First?

For me everything buyt the bloating started healing quickly.  My migraines and bleeding disordere were gone within several weeks.  Fatigue was gone quickly as well.


In Topic: What Foods Besides Gluten Foods Set You Off?

In order of the worst symptoms:  soy, peanuts (both legumes so I hesitant to try other legumes), eggs, dairy.

Could have been the carrageenan (thickening agent) in the almond milk or the potato.  Patatoes are members of the nightshade family and give some people, including me, a lot of grief.  Might want to look these up. Look at Dr. Weil's take on carrageenan.  http://www.drweil.co...eenan-Safe.html


In Topic: Rudy's Not Gluten Free

21 July 2014 - 01:02 PM

I eat at Rudy's amd fine if I eat only the meat.  Can't do the slaw as it contains eggs and can't do the sauce as it contains fish.  I just had turkey and sausage from there today and feel pretty good.
