hi everyone. I have been gluten free over 30 days now since my diagnosis and it has been an up and down process. I have accidentally injested gluten twice, last time a week ago. Overall I have been feeling better but almost every evening for the last week, I get really sick to my stomach. It is usually gone in the morning, although not today. Is this normal?  The only thing new this week is trader joes coffee a cocoa. I have been searching the net and can't find anything that confirms its gluten free. Ingredients are ground coffee, unsweetened cocoa, and chocolate fudge oil.

I don't think it's unusual to be sick a week after a glutening. Remember, you've been glutened twice in 30 days. That is about equal to not having gone gluten-free at all. It really is best to stick to nothing but whole foods at first. They are not ony easier for you to digest, but they reduce the chance of accidental glutening. And drinking (or eating) anything like that Trader Joe's beverage you are not sure of is playing Russian roulette. Don't do it! Eat and drink only things you have prepared yourself and are certain of.

Have you read the Newbie 101 thread? If not, it's pinned to the top of the coping section. Go there right now and read it. :)


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Here is my two cents:

I love Trader Joe's.  Heck, I have been going shopping there for over 25 years.  But, I have to say that we have been glutened by them more than once.  Because they private label most of their products, it is hard to verify that they are really gluten free.  Okay, so no gluten ingredients are used but how is the product manufactured?  For example, I buy name brand corn tortillas made in a shared facility with wheat.  When I called, I was told that the manufacturing line is never shared with wheat.   The company cranks out corn tortillas 24 hours a day.  They maintain standard safe food practices, so I feel good.  But when I call Trader Joe's I can  not talk to someone in the factory.  TJ is not going to disclose their suppliers.  

So, to be safe, I avoid all processed foods from TJ made with their store label.  It can be like eating out -- hit or miss!  

Now, this is just my opinion.  Perhaps others have a different experience.  As far as the other posters and their advice?  Dead on!  :D

Great insight to Trader Joes- to be honest if they had a lable that said gluten free- I havee just been trusting it.  I will be more careful now.
