Popsicle Brand Orange, Cherry, Grape Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I ate a Popsicle Brand Grape popsicle last night and at about 1 AM this morning I felt like a mack truck had hit me, hard.  I see on the Popsicle website that only 5 of the Sugar Free ones are considered Gluten Free but when I reviewed ALL of the ingredients on the box for the Grape, everything seems to be "safe". Can anyone enlighten me to what I am missing?  I have contacted Popsicle for information as well.  I was recently diagnosed approximately 2 months ago and am really feeling much better but can tell when I have eaten something that has gluten in it.  Just can't tell if this is a residual effect from accidentally eating gluten a few days ago, as I felt great yesterday, or did the grape popsicle do this to me.

I think the ingredients are fine, last I looked. I get stomach issues similar to a glutening from some artificial sugars.

It's only been 2 months and you say you have been getting glutened, so you probably haven't healed much. When your system is still " sick" lots of things can set it off.

If you were just glutened a few days ago, chances are it is just the effects of being glutened. Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response that is triggered by gluten. A "flare-up" or reaction can last for days to weeks. That means you can have good days and bad ones.

You could be reacting to anything right now since your small intestines are in the process of being damaged causing not only intestinal symptoms (pain, indigestion, malabsorption issues etc) but symptoms throughout your body (joint inflammation, insomnia etc.) Like Karen said, artificial sugars bother her. Eat simple foods for now. Cooked veggies, plenty of water, soups -- things that are easy to digest. Getting plenty of rest is helpful.

Thanks to both of you. It is so hard trying to figure this out. Lots of good information online about food, etc. but it is still hard when the flare ups do happen.  Was just so funny how good I felt yesterday then to wake up this morning and feel bad again.  I thought the sick part was over because it usually lasts a few days if I have a small exposure to it but apparently I really did it good when I had something on Saturday that had gluten in it.  Will definitely keep in mind that I will have good days and bad days.

 

So glad to have a site to come to and see how others react, etc. and compare because it is hard trying to figure this all out on my own.  We are in a rural area and I am not 100% convinced my doctor is aware of too much with the celiac.

Keep a food diary. Breakfast, lunch an dinner -  and in between meals  Gluten free is to feel good again.

 

Document foods you eat and what brand.  Document every thing you eat.  If  you have a questions about a product, ask us.  Read the label, and if in question, ask us.
