Glutened Myself

Recommended Posts

I had tried this wonderful, gluten free Thai Kitchen brand Pad Thai....so when in Whole Foods the other day I grabbed a different box they had on sale...Annie Chun's Classic Pad Thai. I scanned the ingredient list, but missed the wheat for some reason because I was assuming it was also gluten free. So I made it and ate it, and THEN....discovered the fact that wheat was in it. Ohhhh nooo.....and I'd been so careful lately, with no problems. Bummer..... :(:(:(

Note to myself: Read every label religiously!!! Never assume anything!!!


CAROLE

Enterolab 1/2006

IgA & tTg Positive

DQ2-0201 (celiac) and DQ1-0604 (gluten)

Casein IgA positive

Mom has 2 celiac genes

Both kids have a celiac gene.

Lots of celiac disease in my family, both sides.

Sorry to hear of your set back. I've been there, as I am sure many many others have been too.

I can definitely relate. I did the same thing with a jar of garlic chili paste. I missed the wheat in it. ow.

I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care!

Hope you feel better soon! :) I now read the ingredient list from the end to the beginning. For some odd reason, it makes me slow down and read every word.

It is so easy to miss things, then we suffer for it we have all been there.

This has really made me realize that I have to read every single label for every single thing looking for gluten or casein. Things have so many ingredients these days. That's why the Lara bars were such a happy find...just a few ingredients and all natural!

I guess the more ingredients things have the worse they probably are for you! <_<

And you must read them every time you purchase food items, in case manufactoring changes occurred!!!

It is a pain in the arse, but it is worth it to be healthy!!
