Hi Squall,

Don't be too upset at yourself. It takes a long time to get this right. :rolleyes: It will eventually become second nature, believe it or not!

Margarine can have gluten in it, you need to check the labels. I, personally, stay away from it altogether and use butter. As for mayonnaise - I have yet to find one that DOES have gluten in it.

Hope that helps!

Where would be the wheat in margarine? I use stick to keep mine separate from my hubby's tub o margarine. Mayo is egg based and I've never had a problem.

Hi Squall!

Don't beat yourself up about it! It is a major diet change and takes a lot of time to really get it under control......

As for mayonnaise and margarine, yes, gluten may be in some brands..... For margarine, I use Fleishmann's and for mayonnaise, I use Hellman's......

Hugs

If you're lactose intolerant you might want to try Earth Balance as well. It's the most amazing alternative to real butter :)

you might only be temporarily lactose intolerant....once you have healed from the celiac damage, lactose might be fine again.

was the marg. and mayo you used "safe." .... i.e., nothing was ever dipped in it that had gluten remnants? (knife that was making a 'samwich' with non-gluten free bread, and then dipped back in?)

Like others have said, we have separate condiments like marg and mayo in our house for gluten-free/non gluten free.

if you are only 1 month in, you are probably still not completely healed. so everything you ate might have been fine, you just might be having trouble bc you haven't healed. I was like that and thought I was eating all this gluten-turned out I wasn't, I just wasn't healed. Didn't realize it though til I looked back and learned more about what was/wasn't safe.

Vinegars are generally safe, except for malt vinegar and certain flavored vinegars.

If it says vinegar, it means distilled vinegar, which is safe (FDA guidelines).

Well i live alone with my 6 cats so unless one of them made himself a samwich :)

i think i dont have to worry about that...( but then again they are pretty sneaky...hmmm i wonder...)

i bought new ustensil the day i knew i had problems. i was scared to even touch the one i had before hehe

Hi Squall,

I use the Fleishmann's margarine that is also lactose free. It comes in a package of two containers.....

Karen

If you're sensative to soy, you may want to try a different mayo. I just bought one made from Canola Oil, no soy - it's pretty good too.

no no im not allergic to soy.

but i try to eat less of it because i hear you can becaume allergic by eating too much.

and thats the last thing i need right now.

It took me a year on the gluten free diet before I could tolerate distilled vinegar among other thingsthat tend to show up on the controversial lists of safe foods. From what you stated you are pretty new to the diet and still need to heal. Keep a food diary to help keep your sanity, gluten may not be the cause of all your stomach upset.
