Recommended Posts

Newly diagnosed but ttg has normalized so I know I'm doing the gluten-free diet right.  Having mild gluten symptoms for past week and only thing I can think of new I tried are Tate's gluten-free Choc Chip Cookies.  Anyone gotten sick after eating them?

Ingredients: Semi-sweet chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, milk fat, soy lecithin (an emulsifier), vanilla, natural flavor), Rice flour, Butter, Brown sugar, Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla extract, Baking soda, Salt, Xanthan gum, and Water

Many Celiacs have to remove dairy from their diet for a few months as the enzymes that break down dairy are introduced to the system by the tips of the villi which are damaged by the disease.
Many Celiacs develop a intolerance to Xantham Gum....the stuff is made from black mold anyway.

Please read over the Newbie 101 section you might have missed a source of CC in your house like crumbs in condiment jars, scratched cookware, colanders, CCed spices etc. It is important you avoid eating out also for awhile and cooking  all your own meals, whole foods are best.

tate's are my favorite!  i'd be looking at the soy lecithin/chocolate or eggs or dairy if you had cookies with milk.  you might want to keep a food journal to figure out what other foods are a problem right now until you heal up a bit.  many of us had to remove some other foods for awhile.  i have gotten to add almost everything back into my diet.  still have to be careful with soy  - i can have SOME but not alot.  good luck!   and welcome to the club you never wanted to join ;)

I just recently has Tate's gluten free chocolate chip cookies and after 3 days of eating 2 cookies a day I was very sick. Three days is the usual time it takes for me to get ill generally. I can't see any ingredient on that list that I haven't eaten or don't eat regularly without any problem. And it's a real bummer because they're good! I've tried them twice, same result.

I eat Tate's frequently with never any problem. Be aware Tate's makes a gluten full version of their cookies. Maybe you picked up the wrong bag. They are side-by-side in my grocery store.

No they were the gluten free version but I've been noticing many prebaked gluten free items make me sick lately. I may just be sensitive to something else they use. When I bake my own I'm fine, so I guess I'll be baking!
