Dry Beans? Cc?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm not diagnosed yet (waiting on my doctor to review my records). Well I'm wondering about dry beans and cross contamination. I'm feeling better while being gluten-free (no more extreme fatigue but I'm still tired and get headaches). Well I'm still sharing a rice cooker (since I'm not diagnosed yet) and my mom makes this Cuban dish (called congris) that has rice and beans in our rice cooker. She always uses Goya dry beans... I noticed on the packaging it says that it might be processed in machines that also process wheat. If she washes the beans... are they safe enough to eat? I eat brown rice with almost every meal and I make it in that same rice cooker. Is it safe? Thanks.

As long as the beans are sorted (for pieces of wheat and rocks) and washed, I do not see an issue. I have not been glutened! The same for the rice cooker. If it is clean and has not had gluten in it, then it should be fine. Wash that rice off too. It will cut down on arsenic (Google the article Consumer Reports and arsenic). I skip the brown rice now as it contains the most arsenic and purchase rice grown in California. There is less arsenic in the soil there per my research. This is a concern for celiacs because we tend to eat a lot more rice than the average person.

Cyclinglady: I actually didn't know that rice had arsenic! Well I think my problem might be the rice itself. I was using Uncle Ben's parboiled brown rice and I switched to another brand of just white rice that's labeled gluten-free and I didn't seem to react to it. I did make it on a stainless steel pot instead of in the rice cooker... but I guess I'll have to retry to make it in the rice cooker to see if that's my problem. (My rice cooker bowl is alllll scratched up and my mom makes yellow rice in there too with seasonings soo... idk if that might be the problem). All I know is that as soon as I eat the rice I get an adrenaline rush feeling but since eating this white rice in the pot I haven't had that feeling... and yes gluten does make me have that anxious feeling too. /: And today my tummy is not happy. Hopefully this will pass by tomorrow.

Celiac sharon: Thanks ! At least now I know I can eat beans without worrying about gluten!

Arsenic should not cause any immediate reactions. There is arsenic in many products like apple juice. It becomes a concern with constant exposure over a long period. But do the research. This is not my area of expertise.

Oh no sorry I meant that I think I was reacting to posible gluten CC from the rice or the rice cooker (mom has made different rice recipes in it!). I'm just going to stick with labeled gluten-free brands for now or I might try using the rice cooker to cook my gluten-free rice...see if I react.
