At night Ive been eating goat cheese with some rice crackers to help stabilize my blood sugar before I go to bed. For the past several days I wake up aroud three in the morning with my heart racing, stomach upset, and sweats. I still havent determined if I have a dairy intolerance as well as gluten.

Im wondering if they use gluten in the process of making cheese. But wouldnt it be listed on the label? All that the label says is Pasteurized goats milk, rennet, and enzymes.

Could this cheese be a source of gluten?

I eat goat cheese all the time and never had a problem. Do you trust the crackers?

Could it be something you had earlier?

I have had the pounding heart-night sweats before, too and was never able to figure out the cause...

Perhaps go back to plain rice/soft veggies/poached chicken or eggs for a day or two.

Good Luck,

Pam

Hi Stef,

I had a bad reaction to the mold on the rind of aged goat cheese. I'm sure it wasn't the cheese itself because I had non-aged cheese from the same (local) place and had no problem. I called and talked to the dairyman and we talked about how the milk is processed and so on and he went through all the precautions they take to keep their cheese from getting spoiled. I also contacted the manufacturer of the wax that was put on the cheese to age it and they said that their wax is completely gluten free.
