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


Oak Manor Millet-manufacturing Info.

If it weren't for how limited my diet is, I'd just forgo this particular product--but right now, the only grains I can eat are: rice, millet, tapioca. And I can't buy Bob's Red Mill gluten-free millet because their product is not safe for the tree nut allergic. But I suppose I can just eat rice if this product is unsafe :(

This company: Oak Manor webpage

processes the millet. They also package wheat flour on shared equipment, but they clean the stainless steel equipment thoroughly afterwards. The wheat is milled off site and is run through the machines at a different time than the millet so there isn't flour dust flying everywhere. The man I spoke with thinks that cross contamination is a remote possibility . . .but a possibility.

PS - don't you hate it when people say--it depends how severe your disease is. Are you a severe celiac? :rolleyes: And I also hate it when people assume that I am asking them to decide whether a product is "safe" for me or not . . . I am just trying to get info. about manufacturing processes so I can make a decision! Oh well, doctors also use the are you a "severe celiac" line. I suppose we can't expect people to get it when doctors don't. The folks at Oak Manor seem *relatively* celiac aware.

I would be willing to use that item (there are fairly strict controls for line cleaning), but I know others on here who wouldn't be. Definitely a personal decision, and a tough one.

Yeah, it's a tough call. It's helpful though to see what other people would do in my situation.

Tiffany, I've noticed in a few of your posts that you've mentioned that there's a study out there suggesting that consuming small amounts of gluten every month is = (in terms of the long term health consequences) of not being gluten-free at all. I also recall reading on this site (perhaps from one of your posts) that eating occasional gluten takes on average 10 decades from one's life. Do you by any chance remember which studies these were? I'd be interested in looking them up----I want to have a definite reference for when I happen to talk with people in the medical community. Also, I'm working on trying to get my sister (who can't have wheat, oats, barley, rye and was very very ill until she took these foods out of her diet) to go 100% gluten free.

I generally don't keep links (probably ought to), but you can find the majority of them on pubmed. It may take a fair amount of search refinement and time to go through the results though.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'll keep an eye out for those articles, then! I do find it interesting to read all the abstracts.
