Broccoli & Cauliflower Causing Problems?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any issues with this? I didn't pre-gluten free, I could eat loads of them with no trouble. Fast forward to yesterday, I had some broccoli in my lunch, then at dinner had a roast, some cauliflower and some wine, and this morning I feel like hell. Is this just an isolated me thing, or do others have issues with broccoli and cauliflower too?

I was bloated quite a bit by cauliflower right after I went gluten free. I had a whole bunch of it and it put me in the ER with what I thought were really bad chest pains at the time. I can tolerate it a little bit better now. I eat broccoli like it's going out of style. We're all different. It might be something other than the B & C also. I had a glass of wine a few weeks ago and got really bad cramps. Who knows? It's all trial and elimination as there are so many variables.

 

Good luck finding your answer.

Josh....those 2 veggies are gas producers and many people, with and without Celiac Disease, have trouble with them. When you go gluten-free and clean your system out of the food your body is reacting to, it really becomes noticeable.  I never had a problem with any veggie, pre-gluten-free, but now certain veggies, if I eat too many of them, produce some bloating and gas.  It's totally normal.  Has nothing to do with gluten or anything other than the fact that veggies can be harder to digest or contain some sugars that, when broken down, give you some grief.  Try taking Beano before eating them if they bother you.

They are really good for you so don't cut them out unless you are really uncomfortable.

I eat broccoli and califlower pretty much daily - raw in salads and cooked in stir-fry - but I always take a Bean-Zyme (gluten-free version of Beano) before hand.  If I forget, they will give me a fair amount of gas.  But I didn't notice any difference between pre- and post- gluten-free consumption.  You could be reacting to the wine.  I have found that since going gluten-free alcohol hits me much faster than it ever used to.

I take a digestive enzyme just to keep things running smoothly gluten or no. That could help with the broccoli bloat, and anything else bloat for that matter.

You could ask over on the "other intolerances" board to see if anyone else has issues aside from just gas.

 

I love broccoli too, but really can't handle it raw anymore. Cooked seems to be ok as long as not too much.
