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

Thai Kitchen Noodle Carts

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I bought a few of these because they were on sale and I love the noodle soup bowls they make. The first one I ate I got that wierd hunger pain thing, but thought maybe it just wasn't enough food. I ate another one yesterday and had some popcorn as well ( which I eat constantly). I was driving later in the day, when the sharp hunger growl pains came back ( they're like hunger pains but really violent and sharp) and I got the feeling that I was going to throw up, Nausea, sweating, that heavy throat feeling. I pulled over, and got out my car and spit up about a gallon of bile into a trash can. Not throw up, just bile. I felt better, but was still mildly queasy for the rest of the night. Not going to eat any more of these, but was wondering if anyone else has had a reaction to them?

No, this was the noodle cart, its not soup, its just rice noodles with seasoning. You heat the noodles in hot water, then dump the water out and mix in the spices. The Pad Thai one and the Garlic one are labeled Gluten free.

Possibly, but I haven't been tested for anything else. It must be something in the seasoning packet, because I eat rice noodles all the time with no adverse effects. This was a very specific reaction that I've never really had before either. I'm going to investigate the ingredients further.

Adding-- I just re-read the ingredients. Theres nothing in there that I don't eat on a regular basis in all kinds of other foods. This is wierd. I've been limiting my nightshades, not eliminating completly, just eating in moderation, but theres none of that there.

There's some funky stuff in that seasoning packet. I never feel good when I eat those. I'm also soy intolerant/allergic, but I think it's more a matter of some sort of weird hydrolized something or other that just doesn't agree with many people.

I have been eating those for years and now that I am gluten-free at least once a week and have not had any problems with them. Sorry! I hope you feel better fast!

Well, I just bought a big package of those at BJs, but haven't tried them yet. I hope they don't make me sick since I bought so many, but I will let you know!

BTW, what are nightshades? I'm still new to this....

This sounds like the same issue I have with bouillon (sp?). I finally threw all the little cubes and jars out as they made me feel ill and gave me D, although it's an entirely different feeling than being glutened. I, too, couldn't find anything in the ingredients that I thought I should be wary of. As someone else mentioned, maybe something hydrolized causes the problem.

After throwing out the little boullion cubes I went to using organic broth made by Imagine (comes in boxes) or Whole Foods 365 brand and have had no issues with either. I like the organic stuff -- I can pronounce all the words on the label :)

Nightshades are a family of plants including peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and eggplant. It seems like it's another pretty common allergen on this board.

I think that I have reactions to hydrolyzed stuff as well as to maltodextrin. I try not to eat products with either of these things in them.

I eat both the bowls and the noodle carts probably 3 times a week, and never have had a negative reaction. They've really been a godsend...they are one of the cheaper prepared gluten-free items on the market. I can't remember if they have the "prepared in a facility which processes wheat, etc." warning on them or not. Do you think it could be cross-contamination, since we know that the hot and sour definitely has wheat in it?

That's been one of my main ways to stay alive this summer here at college since I can't eat too much at the Student Center (which has a Subway, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Tuscan Kitchen, Starbucks, and Freshens Ice Cream...and it's not really an option for me to live off salads and ice cream).

I haven't had any problems from it (at least I don't think I have). Maybe the reaction could be to a particular spice or something unrelated to the disease. Beats me. Or some celiacs are more sensitive than others?

I don't have any other food allergies/intolerances however when I had those a while ago I felt really sick immediately after eating it. I think they are just way too spicy for me.

I have had issues in the past a few times--I think it is a mix of the heavy flavorings, additives, sodium etc. for me.
