Nuts!-some Nuts Are With Flour Grrrr!

Recommended Posts

I travel as part of my work. I have often taken a container of mixed nuts along when on the road just in case I passed on a meal due to gluten concerns. Anyway this became quite a habit over time. Being a prudent spender I rationalized once that purchasing bags of cooking nuts and then mixing them and bagging them seemed like a less expensive alternative to purchasing containers of mixed eating nuts. Anway I was surprised when I got really ill from the nuts. In my whole celiac experience I have never been so sick. I could barely sit my bum got so inflamed and sore.

Turns out that cooking nuts sometimes have flour put on them (nothing on the label). I presume it is used to soak up the natural oils when salt is not used as is the case in eating nuts. Needless to say I only buy the salted ones now!

The nuts were not peanuts. They were 1 lb. bags of walnuts, peacans, hazelnuts and almonds. I do not recall the brand names. I purchased them at a large big box bulk store called Costco! I don't know if all of them had flour or just one of them. I got sick on the blend. When I inquired I was told that when salt is not used they put flour on to soak up residual oils

Some types of peanuts use flour in them, too. The little bags my bank gives away states that wheat is used in the coating on the peanuts.
