I've been on the gluten free diet for a few weeks now.. and today my mom made banana bread with kinnikinnick mix instead of flour. I was so excited to be able to eat bread.. but now my stomach hurts like it used to.. I thought I could eat things made with the mix instead of flour.. we used all the other ingredients in the normal recipe.. margarine, sugar, eggs, banana, frozen fruit, baking soda, baking powder and salt..

Couple of things are coming to mind. You may have an intolerance or allegric reaction to something in the mix. I'm not familiar with it. Look at the ingredients to see if you can isolate the problem. Or there may be a cross contamination issue. Is your household completely gluten-free? Could there been an accidental dose of gluten?

My first guess is also cc. I worried about baking with my old baking soda, sugar, etc. I remember when I would have a recipe that would use a teaspoon I would put the teaspoon into the baking soda and maybe rinse it, maybe not, and then put it into the sugar or whatever else used that same measurement. I would also have the flour out which would get all over the counters and some could have landed on any of the other baking suppies. I got all new baking supplies and labeled them gluten-free so I knew they wasn't any flour crumbs in them.

Also, the pan you baked it in. If it has an tough corners or scratches there may be some gluten that wasn't washed out. I use separate pots and pans and baking pans so that I don't have to worry about that.

Lastly, in the beginning your system is healing. It is much easier to eat basic foods like meats, veggies, fruits and rice. You may find there are other things that you can no longer eat - many of us have long lists now. If you keep eating processed foods it may take longer to feel better because you may not be tolerating some of the chemicals well. I realize this bread was homemade, but I would stick to basic foods until you really have the diet under control and you are feeling much better.

Kinnikinnik breads make my stomach hurt sometimes. I don't have a clue why. I have been avoiding all processed foods that don't agree with me, even if they are gluten free.

Sorry you are miserable.
