Glutened by frozen blueberries???

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have gotten to the point where I eat an extremely clean diet. Literally almost everything in my diet is pure and fresh and doesn't even come in a package. I haven't been "glutened" in a really long time.

However, I recently started a new eating protocol (medical medium 28 day cleanse). Blueberries are a big part of the diet. The fresh ones at my store were gross and old, so I bought organic frozen ones ( simple truth brand for those of you who have king soopers/Kroger).

Could I have possibly been glutened from eating these? They have no labeled additional ingredients. They do not say gluten free, and also do not say processed in a facility with gluten, or contain gluten.

My eyeballs, spine, and head hurt which is always my first sign of exposure. Any time now my belly will kick in too.

Any thoughts on this? Could I have really been glutened by frozen berries!? TIA

-_- I have been glutened by strawberries, and mushrooms before, also by broccoli....as with the broccoli  I called the company and that one had come from a facility that did sauced veggies. Seemed they used the same packing machines but cleaned them between runs.

It could be the company follows similar protocols of using the same packing machines as a line that uses gluten in it. I doubt it as kareng mentions fruit should be on a fruit only plant.  Might be worth looking into. .....my thoughts and what I would do as I own a nima would be take some mash them up in s small cup and put a small sample in the testing kit and see. You can try eating them on another day if you can not test them, try them by themselves and see what happens.

are you eating them every day?  i thought i couldn't handle blueberries, but it turns out that i can eat them if i don't overdo it and if i don't eat them every day.  i have frozen berries from kroger and i eat them in my cereal every third day or so.  idk why fruit packers would have wheat.....  (but they were labeled gluten free on those little purple squares on the price thingy)

OH I thought of a few things, sometimes the rush of sugars can cause gastric issues, high and sudden uptakes of vitamin C can cause D and other issues, and if your not used to a high fiber diet throwing in a bunch of berries with high fiber, sugar, etc. is going to give your gut a rough ride.

Yeah I play it safe, I eat only gluten-free labled foods, and those that are not I tend to test with a Nima Sensor....thing is a life saver for these kind of cases....tends to be a bit hyper sensitive though...like detecting below 20ppm
