Crisp Cross Contamination

Recommended Posts

Everything in my house is Gluten free, everything!! apart from some bread, which is kept in an airtight container in a separate cupboard, for my husband and daughter. Because I have a few health issues at the moment I did not want to overload my husband with the importance of cross contamination in the kitchen, but he needs to be clearer on this as last night I caught him in the kitchen shoveling my gluten-free crisps with his hand onto his plate next to the sandwich he had just made!!!  Grrrrrrr  
 
Of course in future I will hide my crisps, but really that is not the point and can someone recommend a good short link that I can send him to, so that he can read up on this and really understand......

 lifetime commitment

The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. 

 

He shouldn't put his hands in the chips - gluten or not.  Its a germ issue!  We share chips (crisps) but we pour them out.  He could also pour them into a bowl so that he doesn't touch them.  I don't know how long its been, it can take a long time for someone in your household to remember these things.

Jane Anderson has some nice articles about it. Here is just one, but there are many!

http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/settingupthekitchen/a/Shared-Kitchen-Decision.htm

We had a shared kitchen when it was my husband who was gluten free and my daughter was little. I prepared all the food though. I knew the ropes since I have a food food allergies. Once I was diagnosed and my daughter was old enough to prepare food in the kitchen, we went 99% gluten free. I prepare her noddles in a dedicated pot and she eats them on a paper plate and plastic fork (we do not have a dishwasher.....hummm....that's me!) and she gets prepackaged gluten things in her school lunch. No gluton-containing bread is allowed in the house. She eats her BLT sandwiches on Udi's like the rest of us -- and she likes ii!

I recently had this same conversation with my family ONCE AGAIN after 20+ years of being gluten free. They started to "forget" that even tiny amounts are dangerous.

 

We just have to consider it part of the struggle of this disease.

 

How would hubby feel if you died from Celiac related issues? I nearly did before I was diagnosed.

Hey thanks for that I will look at these and pass them on..

 

Karen...your right, I will pass that on to him! I became gluten-free from Sept last year.

 

CLady...I might have to start making my own bread..its something to think about.

 

sunny....I have no idea how long I was Gluten intolerant, but I suspect maybe 2 or 3 years when I think back to how my stomach would always balloon after eating bread, and I paid no heed to it! ..stupid stupid stupid!!! then last year I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, followed by Lichen Schlerosus, followed by GERD, then Lactose intolerance, and the penny finally dropped that I needed to go Gluten free.

 

I recently gluttoned myself with a lipstick and have felt depressed and ill with new allergies popping up, I also believe I may now have a histamine intolerance to food, and so I definitely think you are right regarding how some people can end up dying from celiac related issues..it really is that serious

This is why we made my kitchen completely gluten-free after similar incidents kept happening and my husband said he is only human and not perfect.  So we no longer keep regular bread in the house.  Only a few packaged products that he takes to work for lunches.  We finally came across canyon bakehouse 7 grain bread, and he really likes it.  So, if you are willing to eat the cost in order to make your kitchen safe, check that out.  It doesn't need toasting or anything.  (I tried it after hearing people rave about it on here, lol)


I am my husband's "Silly Yak Girl" :)

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.

Laura, thank you,  I am limited to what I can find and buy where I live, I'm not in the States, but I have looked online and discovered a popular bread making mix and so I am going to order a few packets to make my own, and then I can just stop buying bread, really I don't know why I didn't think to do that before, because I have realized that its actually quite stressful worrying about other people in my kitchen.
