Hidden Gluten?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with celiac about 3 weeks ago and within a few days felt so much better.  I cooked a stew over the weekend and within an hour or so,began feeling nauseaus, bloated.  The next morning I was back to square one with stomach pains, and all the other issues i was having.  I went and re-read the chicken stock, and it says gluten free, but then says it contains a small amount of glutamate.  I am not sure if this is what is making me sick, or if can expect ebs and flows until I heal completely.  I have been so careful (or so I thought).

 Thank goodness Im working from home today b/c it would have been a miserable day at work

When you say the stock contained glutamate, do you mean monosodiumglutamate (MSG?) because that usually is derived from wheat and not suitable for a gluten free diet.

Also, if you have not been on a gluten free diet for long, it could just be your body detoxing. When I first went gluten free I felt great but then every week or so I would throw up everything I ate at dinner. Eventually this stopped happening, I believe my body was going through a detox at the time.

Despite all, remaining positive!

MSG is safe and does not contain gluten.  It does not always agree with people but it has nothing to do with gluten.

Most likely, the stew might have been too heavy for a newly diagnosed Celiac.  gluten-free foods can still make you sick until your gut has a few months to calm down from all the inflammation.  Or the MSG bothered you, as it does me....I never eat it.  Don't worry about this small setback.....it happens to us all in the beginning and it will not interrupt your ability to heal.
