Certified Gluten Free Foods Safe?

01 January 2013 - 05:47 PM

I was recently dx with celiac and have great family support. Between my positive blood test and my endoscopy I spent a lot of time learning about celiac and what is safe. I read somewhere that certified gluten free foods were safe and have not read bag/box as long as I see the certified gluten free symbol. (I make my meals but like to have snacks available for busy days or just as a treat.) Over the holiday a family member bought me some flavored popcorn that was certified gluten free. I enjoyed two bowls of said popcorn and within hours I had a reaction. After I reviewed what I ate, the popcorn was the only new food item I had introduced so I knew that was it. After getting sick I read the bag, a lesson I have now learned and will always do from now on even if it is certified gluten free, it states that it is manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat. Groan.

Anyone else had a similar experience? Feeling overwhelmed again, after thinking I had a handle on this.
