Regular Vegetables Vs. Organic Vegetables?

09 July 2013 - 04:35 PM

Hi All -


When I first had to go gluten-free almost two months ago - vegetables didn't bother me.  I love to eat salads.  However since I've been gluten free, raw or cooked vegetables and especially bagged lettuce is bothering me a lot.  I know the lettuce is sprayed with a preservative that has corn in it and I did find out that I have a corn aversion.  But.....do they spray the same stuff on fruits/veggies????  Just the ones in the produce section at the grocery store - not the bagged ones.  Because what is weird is all of a sudden, the past couple of weeks, veggies are now bothering me a lot.  I bloat immediately and have the heavy feeling in my stomach and all of that.  It's not like eating gluten but similar.  Pretty much the same as what happens when I ingest corn.  So - what is going on?  Why am I all of a sudden having trouble with the veggies.  Does this mean that I have to buy ALL ORGANIC EVERYTHING???

I want to know, if anyone can help, why this is happening and what are they sprayed with.  ??  Also - I'm not sure but am I becoming more sensitive to things...the longer gluten is out of my system??

I'm confused - please help!!!!

I had asparagus for dinner tonight, it wasn't organic, and I bloated right away, and the heaviness.....



Thanks All


Question On Corn Aversion

20 June 2013 - 12:16 PM

Hi All - looking for some advice here!

I am one who has an aversion to corn.  Only been gluten-free for a little over a month now and I can't have anything with corn in it.  Here are my questions:

1.  Can someone tell me why some of us cannot tolerate corn??

2.  How far do I take this?  Do I have to stay away from modified corn starch or food starch?  What about HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), corn syrup??

3. What other foods should I be cautious of, being that I've only been gluten free for a month.  Should I stay away from potatoes, mushrooms?? - should I stay away from beans??


The whole corn thing threw me off and I don't know how far to take that and also what other foods I should really watch out for.  Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone - has anyone experienced terrible reflux that went away once you went gluten-free?  And if so - how long did it take to go away?

I have had absolutely awful reflux for a long time and after going gluten-free, it has decreased A LOT.  Gets very bad when I am accidentally glutened but it just hasn't gone away completely yet. 

Just looking to see if this tends to be common with celiacs and/or NCGI patients.  I see my doctor next week but looking for some help.

Thank you!!
