Frozen vegetables?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi again!

It seems I am having a flare-up tonight after a supper of baked chicken, frozen Kale, Fresh red peppers and frozen mixed vegetables.  I have two suspicions and one maybe-

1.is something added to frozen vegetables?

2. the "Poultry" seasoning on the chicken.

3.I put coconut oil on my arms and one leg to ease the itching tonight for the first time. it seemed to help.  The itching is now including my back and shoulders which I did not touch with the oil.

thanks for any comments, as I sit here unable to sleep because the itching is terrible!

What company, some companies do both sauced gluten lines and plain veggie lines. I have gotten glutened off of a few brands that do this. I know birdeye got me once, I called them to learn they use the same packaging machines for both...just hose them down between runs. (this was years ago) A few others companies will put warnings on theirs.

Some members with DH have found that following the Fasano diet for a few months has been the only way to break  the DH rash cycle.  The diet specifically has you avoid processed foods and frozen veggies are processed.  Read more in the DH section.

Poultry seasoning on the chicken...... it's best to use single spices rather than mixes. You can buy them singly & make your own mixes.

thank you for your comments.  I am easing into the GAPS diet, which i believe is similar to Fasiano.  I had both frozen vegetables and poultry seasoning yesterday (I simply forgot about the previous reaction) and I had no reaction. So I am even more puzzled. I do believe I should avoid seasonings and only use single spices, but I am still unsure about the frozen veggies.

Well I had a bad reaction to the birdseye broccoli, (same lines as their sauced I learned after a phone call) a few years back and never touched them again. I sell my bakery gluten-free goods at a farmers market and get goo deals on fresh produce there. I also buy some stuff in the store fresh, but for the most part I actually stocked up on stuff like freeze dried veggies, I reconstitute them in soups, and soak them in my omelette mixture over night and just cook them up in the morning. I went to canned for some veggies, having good luck with del monte, I go for the unsalted stuff when I can. I still use the fresh stuff with cooking for others or doing stir fry.

Spices, can be hit and miss, Spicely Organics is a good place for bulk and all gluten free certified. Bix Axe Spice, has some dang good flavored blends that are even salt free. The Spice House, I get sausage seasoning from, I use it in my eggs, or to make vegan sausage. Also found a asian blend from them I fell in love with. But again some people can have bad reactions to peppers, garlic, onions etc. at first regardless if safe.

I usually do fresh veggies rather than frozen, because I've seen a lot of "may contain wheat" on the packaging of frozen veggies. I do use frozen raspberries for my smoothies, and I've researched this to death and found that frozen fruits are usually safe, if it's just the fruit. I buy Walmart brand and they're really good about labeling.

I use McCormick's spices, and some of their mixed spices say that they're gluten free. The only mixed spice that I use is their Montreal steak seasoning, which says "gluten free" right on the front. Usually I just use single spices. I use their gluten free taco and chili seasonings too. I trust McCormick's. 

You may have reacted to too much fiber in your meal, or to the peppers. It might not even be the gluten. I would start by taking a look at the ingredients in your poultry seasoning and calling the company to see what they say. I would do the same with the frozen veggies. If those seem to be safe I would say you reacted to something besides gluten.
