Nuts without any Gluten Contamination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a new member. Glad to be part of this community. I have been buying Gluten Free Certified nuts but struggling with symptoms because of Gluten Contamination. Can someone recommend nuts that are for certain contamination free. Appreciate it very much.

Thanks

Are you certain the problem is that you are getting glutened from the nuts? Are you certain that you are not getting gluten in your diet from other food sources such as might happen with cross contamination? Are you certain your are not having some intolerance to something else in your diet besides gluten. Most people with Celiac Disease develop allergies/intolerances to other foods over time because celiac disease results in generally dysfunctional immune system with regards to food.

Not many nut companies are certified gluten-free, so it would be strange if they were contaminated with gluten. Can you share the brand? 

Many people, including myself, eat Planters brand nuts, even though they are not labelled or certified gluten-free, without issues. You need to check the ingredient labels carefully because not all of their products are gluten-free.

If you buy nuts in the shell and shell them yourself they should be gluten free.  You could even wash them before shelling to be extra careful. If you react to nuts handled this way then it is likely the nuts, not gluten contamination, that is the problem.

nuts.com has many certified gluten free nuts (and other products). Some are labelled gluten-free, but some are actually certified and have the new gluten-free logo on them.

I wonder if you are having problems with all types of nut, or whether it is a particular type of nut that might be causing symptoms?  I have to bake a carrot cake once a year for a relative's birthday (I refuse to do it more often as the recipe involves grating vast quantities of carrots!).  I have found that when I eat this cake, my stomach burns like mad if I eat too much and the symptoms seem rather akin to a glutening to me in many respects, also causing bloating.  The cake also contains vast quantities of ground walnuts.  I made a walnut cake a while back and the same thing happened so I reckon it is the walnuts that hurt my stomach.   The odd walnut is fine, just eating large quantities of the ground stuff appears to be an issue.
