How Quickly Can Food Cause D?

I have been gluten free for a month now and I know my symptoms when I get glutened. Today, it wasn't gluten that got me, but I'm not aware of anything else that I have a problem eating.

Here's what happened: I ate an organic hemp seed bar from the health food store. It clearly said gluten free and only had a handful of understandable organic ingredients. 30 minutes later I drank a chocolate boost. I drink the vanilla all the time & I know both flavors are gluten free. 15 minutes after the boost I felt some intestinal gurgling and pain. 15 minutes after that I had to go to the bathroom immediately and had a lot of D. I had a normal bm about 4 hours before having the hemp bar. I don't usually go to the bathroom more than once a day now, unless I have been glutened. Those two items - hemp bar and chocolate boost - are the only things I have eaten today that I haven't had in the past.

Can I assume that one of these two items caused my problems? Is it too quick for them to get thru my system (30 mins to 1 hour)? What came out seemed to be much more than what I ate, so if things were going to come out fine and you eat something bad, does it make all of it come out bad?

I can certainly stay away from both of those, but I want to figure out what didn't agree with my system. I feel fine now and I don't have any other symptoms that I normally get when I've been glutened.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

I talked about this with a GI specialist once. If your body doesn't want whatever you've ingested in it, it can take a mere twenty minutes to shove it out the other side. (thats a pleasant picture). We were discusing in particulat food poisoning or bad food, I was convinced at one point that all my episodes were being caused by "bad" food and that I was just more suseptible to food poisoning.

Since you have only been gluten free for 1 month, your body is still potentially (and probably) healing. It might be that for whatever reason, your body couldn't process it correctly. I know there are many people on this board that it took them awhile to feel normal. I remember eating things that I knew were gluten free but still would have trouble with them (which further confused me!). After a longer period of time being gluten-free, I was able to eat more normally.

It might have been the lactose also...many cannot tolerate lactose/casein to start with, or after they have been glutened.
