See's Candy, gluten-free but had BAD reaction

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I am pretty new to my disease and have been gluten free for about 3 months. I am discovering how sensitive I am, and I am finally feeling more adjusted. I haven't been accidentally "glutened" for around a month, which is great, but last night I had an awful reaction to some See's Candy Bridge Mix. They are supposedly gluten free, and I even called to ask for the ingredients, and they are indeed gluten- free. Obviously there is a lot of chocolate involved, milk, cream, corn syrup, molasses, egg, some soy, however none of these ingredients I have reacted to before. I used to get very bloated with dairy, but that has passed now that I have developed celiac. Do you think this could be a sign of cross sensitivity? Have any of you had a horrible gluten like reaction to a food that contained no gluten? I am feeling a little discouraged, because I was doing so well. Maybe its the corn syrup or corn starch? so confused :(

If you got glutened a month ago you might as well consider yourself as only ONE month gluten-free. At that stage, just about anything could make you feel ill, and a product with all of those ingredients plus all the chocolate and sugar is especially likely to do you in. Try to stick to simple, plain whole foods for the next six months or so. That way you won't risk getting glutened, plus your poor ravaged digestive system won't have to deal with hard to digest items.

I know, six months sounds like a long time, but it'll fly by and you will be feeling better than ever.


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!
