Gluten Free Substitutes Made With Rice

23 April 2013 - 08:52 AM

With all the recent news about rice and arsenic (you are now supposed to wash rice before cooking to remove some of the arsenic) and, more recently, the rice from China and Taiwan that is contamined with lead.... are gluten-free products containing rice (rice flour, starch, etc) safe to consume??

Rice seems to be one of the most commmon "substitute grains/carbs" (along with potatoes)... I'm wondering if the processing of rice when gluten-free packaged foods are made makes it safer, or would it sill be unsafe to eat??


Apologies if this has already been asked... I didnt' see anything on a quick search.

Casein Intolerance

08 January 2013 - 06:16 AM

Does anyone else also have casein intolerance? If so, what are the typical symptoms? Are they similar to gluten intolerance?
How does one know if they are casein or lactose intolerant? (maybe that's too many questions at once, but I am confused).

Negative Blood Test- Positive Biopsy

22 August 2012 - 09:12 AM

How common is it to have a negative blood test and a positive biopsy?

My blood test was negative and my doctor (maybe with good reason) never went any further with testing and dismissed celiac. About a year or two later I found out onmy own that gluten was one of the major culprits in my GI problems, so I went gluten-free.
A year after that I had a routine visit with my doctor and she asked how my GI stuff was going and I told her it was mostly fine, except when I ate gluten. She then proceeded to tell me that she'd had multiple patients who tested negative on blood come back and tell her they found out gluten was a problem...

I wonder how many people actually go through with the biopsy even when the blood is negative??
