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

I've reached the end of the rope in trying to find what has made me sick, like really sick, for the past month. The only thing I can possibly think of that I added to my diet (in excess) is minute maid fruit juices. I get things that make me sick here and there but I have to be ingesting something on nearly a daily basis to swing me back into my old symptoms. When this happens, it can take up to a month to recover.

Why??? I found this same issue with Gatorade! do I just have an allergy to juice or what? Over the winter I started introducing juices in my diet and the only ones that I haven't reacted too are pure apple and orange juice.

Tropicanna grape juice will make me violently ill, within hours. Gatorade within a day or so. Minute Maid took some time. Confusing! anyone just have trouble with juice in general? the only thing I can think of that is common to all is maybe the colouring or "natural flavours".

I dunno, I always go into denial when I'm really sick for some reason, especially when I read that they're ok.

Gatorade is gluten free, Minute Maid I am pretty sure is gluten free, but I do not trust Tropicana. Could you be getting gluten in your system from something else and think its that? How long have you been gluten free? Some people are sensitive to additives(non celiac related)

Somne one posted a letter not long ago from Coke (who own minutemaid) that states thier 100% pure fruit juices are gluten-free, and the rest might have gluten, but are less then 200ppm (CODEX), the siad "prehaps even 0". So take that for what it si worth...

well, if no one else has had any trouble then it kinda makes you wonder doesn't it?

I do eat other products that are made on the same line, like french fries (McCains), chips (Kettle), corn chips (Frito), etc... however not very often. Once a week if that.

Other than that I'm really carefull. But like I say I have to eat something every day almost to screw me up to the point where I get fatigued, fybro pain comes back, anxiety, migrains, yadda yadda...

Plus, I've been gettin better over the past couple weeks.

hmm, I eat a lot of other things with fructose so I don't think so. I'll have to check it out,

thanks

Funny you should post this. We drink Minute Maid Pure Premium O.J. everyday. Something is glutening my family and I can't figure it out. I am EXTREMELY careful about what we eat. I was just suspecting the o.j. this morning. I'm sooooo frustrated.

I called the Minute Maid Company when I was initially diagnosed. They said they could ONLY guarantee that their 100 percent Orange Juice product was the only one that was gluten free...the other flavors and the ones with added vitamins, etc., in them could potentially contain gluten, she said.

It may be the Kettle chips. They said not to eat them if you have Celiac because they are cc and not gluten free. I would eliminate those and see what happens. I called and checked on the Cherry limeade and was told it was gluten-free. My daughter and I drink it with no problems at all. good luck!

I would second the fructose intolerance. It can give diarrhea, bloating, cramps, etc. Try reducing your fruit intake including juice to 4 or less servings per day. Is it just the minute maid brand?

I have a problem with juice because of a mold allergy. I also have to watch peanut butter (almond butter is okay, however) for the same reason. I'm okay if I eat pb or juice once or twice per week, but more than that leaves me feeling bad.

It's so easy to always blame gluten!

I eliminated everything I thought might be a problem except the juice and was still having trouble. Since I stopped drinking the juice I've felt better. This is the 4th time I've tried to introduce something other than plain apple or orange juice where it has caused a problem. It's been with other brands like McKain, Gatorade, Tropicanna, and now minute maid. I may have actual Kettle chips about once every three months. Mostly its tostitos and Maine Coast salt and vinegar.

I eat frutose on a regular basis and have been gluten free since jan 2004. I do feel almost 100% if I only eat foods that I know are gluten free.

I shouldn't be taking any risks at all but I want to live life a little. Everything is a risk, goin to a bbq, kissing my girlfriend, licking a stamp, lol.

Bah, thats what I don't get. I wonder how many PPM kissing my girlfriend is???? wouldn't it be the same as have a glass of juice? lol.

Guess I'll have to look at other allergies.

Thanks all

Nate
