My company cafeteria sometimes does a quinoa specialty station, with sauces and add-ins.  I've had long talks with the manager there about my Celiac and they've been extremely accommodating - they were very pleased to tell me about this new option.  We've discussed all the ingredients, and they have a separate prep area, so I felt quite confident about eating from this new station.

 

But, I have to say that each of the three times I've had it, I've had kind of a 'rumbling' tummy afterward.  I'd like to think it's not gluten, but maybe just more quinoa than I'm used to in one meal.  Is it common to get a bit of a reaction from quinoa, that is not gluten-related? Or should I fear some sort of cross contamination?

 

It's black quinoa if that makes a difference, and I eat plenty of quinoa otherwise, though maybe not this much at once.

 

Thanks.

I had a hard time digesting quinoa when I was first diagnosed, but I was not getting glutened -- my damaged gut could not handle it. . Give it some time and then retest.

I wish I could get more fiber. Quinoa is an excellent source. Due to the high fiber content, it can be difficult to digest, especially during the celiac disease healing process.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
