    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Just curious--has anyone had problems with any of these? I suspected that their digestive enzymes were causing a reaction months ago, and discontinued them. Yesterday, I tried their Almond Butter for the first time--about 2 hours later (my typical reaction time), I began to get gas, and some cramping. I had no appetite for dinner, and this morning, after an unpleasant bathroom visit :ph34r: I still don't feel right. Can anyone relate?

Hmmm, I've only ever tried their rice milk and tomato sauce I think... so can't help there, but hope you feel better soon! When I used digestive enzymes (a long while ago) they made me digestive system gassy and very "unsettled"...

Thanks, Jen--I have used digestive enzymes one other time, and they were great. They contained some stomach soothing herbs, but also had malt diastase--at the time I thought this was a gluten ingred. and stopped taking them! I'm thinking it had to be the Almond Butter :angry:

Funny you should ask this....I just emailed them yesterday to check on the gluten-free status of their frozen tater puffs. There are no gluten ingredients listed, but I needed to double check b/c both days I ate them, I had lots of cramping/gas, which usually only occurs when I get glutened. They wrote back with this response:

The 365 Tater Puffs contain no gluten, however they may have been made

in a facility that makes other products containing gluten. I hope this

helps.

Thank you,

I am now staying clear of the tater puffs. Shame b/c they were darn good!

Thanks Kim--I'm thinking that's what happened with the almond butter, too. I have an email into them but haven't heard anything yet. Some companies just do a better job at protecting against CC--that is what I am seeing.

Please let us know what they say in their response to you.

I may just have to avoid that brand now, too. The more I go on, the more I am convinced that I need to stick to whole foods....veggies, meats, fruits and trusted gluten-free companies. I have run into too many issues recently and my tummy is tired of it! LOL!

I sure will--and you know what I have found (for myself)-- that CC tends to occur more with the so-called natural brands more than some of the mainstream ones. For example, I have had no problems at all with Kraft, Con Agra or Lays. I use their products frequently. :blink:

i wonder why this is...i only once tried their plain yogurt and it made me sick. then recently i bought their whole fruit sorbet bars and felt off after eating them.. i cant figure out what gives w/ their products, but they dont sit right w/ me! i also find the WF gluten-free list does not list most 365 products...

Well, today I heard back from a Customer Care Specialist from Whole Foods in Texas. She told me that the almond butter is not processed in a facility with wheat or gluten, but that they want to follow up on this. Luckily, I still have the jar--she is going to send me the packaging and return label, and they want me to send it back to them so they can have it tested by an independant 3rd. party company. She said she'd let me know what they found out. I am very impressed!

I bought the 365 digestive enzymes a few weeks ago, for the first 3 days I was having terrible stomach pain..I wasn't sure if it was the enzymes or not, stopped them for 5 days, pain stopped, then took for 2 more days..terrible pain again..I brought them back, they said they take anything back even if its just because you don't like the taste

Yes--that's what happened to me with the enzymes. I don't know what's going on with some of their stuff. I am very curious to know what they find out on the almond butter. Maybe they've gotten a lot of complaints and are investigating the individual products.

Well, I have an update. They sent me packaging, and a label and I returned the product to a lab in Nebraska. I got a call--the woman from Whole Foods told me that they test to 100 parts per million, and that there was no gluten detected. So that's that. I'm not really sure how sensitive that is--I will still be cautious about their products, though.

could you have an allergy to nuts (the almonds)? I haven't tried the WF food yet (just started a week ago on this), but I will definitely pay attention to my body if and when I do try their food! Thanks for the heads up.

No allergy to almonds--this was most definately a gluten reaction :)
