Anyone Got Sick From Canola Oil?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband fried some fish yesterday for me in A LOT of Canola Oil. I am not doing well on a lot of oil in general, but MAN did I get sick today. I ate the fish last night (fresh halibut) and I felt right away that it wasn't to my stomach's liking. My stomach ached during the evening and I have been very close to vomitting today several times. My stomach hurts too.

I don't think I got glutened by accident, but who knows..

He put Bob's Red Mill potato flour and sourghum on the fish. I had some Raspberries in the evening and probably too many. They can be a bit too sour for my stomach.

Maybe it was a mix of everything... I am very misserable today. :blink:

I have been doing so well lately in general. Feel I have my energy back, feel a little like my old self. I have figured out I am very sensitive and don't do very well on any grains. Can have a tad of boiled egg sometimes and a tad of popcorn, but my stomach never seem really happy on much but veggies, fruits, pork, chicken and fish...So I am mostly eating that, which is okay.

So was I just dreaming when I thought I read on here that some Celaics have a problem with Canola oil?? Or maybe it was just the large amount that messed me up so bad.

Some do have a problem with Canola, but did you use a cast-iron pan to cook the fish in. Many can be porus and a absorb pre-gluten oils.

No he used my own Teflon pan. Never used any stuff that I am intolerant to in it.

I do bad on a lot of gluten free stuff like rice, avocado, Quinoa...if I have more than just a little. Avocado isn't working at all and I assume that is the oil in it. I am guessing I just got too much oil in me and my stomach is hating me for it. I dunno.. I am very sensitive. I should have known better and not eaten it. He didn't plan on using as much oil as he did. :P I feel as sick as when I get glutened today though. More than just a little bad like I can get if I eat too much rice for example.

Headach, diarrea.. It is almost harder to deal with when you have started to feel better over all.

I'm so sorry to hear that you had a bad reaction! But at the same time, it's kind of comforting to me to hear that someone else has trouble with oil. I've been really worried lately because I can't tolerate ANYTHING with oil in it, so I'm not getting any fatty acids or omega 3s at all. My diet it completely oil free because when anything just has a touch of oil, I get intestinal spasms. Is that what happens with you? I hope that things get better for you soon...

My stomach hurt bad last night and I get really, really nauseous. Diarrhea sometimes.

I think Flax Seed has Omega 3 in it; maybe you can put that on something you eat to get some of that in you?

Yeah, I have to watch out with oily stuff. Can't handle it well at all. So you are not alone.

This is the worst reaction so far, but also the most amount of oil.

Hi Jenny,

Honestly, it sounds like what you suspected--the mix of everything :(

It was probably just too much for your stomach--especially after eating so simply and feeling better.

I am a bit sensitive to canola--it dosen't give me a huge reaction, but I feel a little "off" after eating it. I use mostly olive oil--when I need something light I use Safflower oil.

Somebody once upon a time alleged that canola was a problem for people with celiac but there's never been any proof whatsoever. I'm sure there are people who have problems with canola, just like there are people who have problems with almost anything, but it's not celiac related.

hello Jerseyangel! Nice to "see" you again. I haven't been on here much this spring. I finally started working again a bit. I haven't worked since I got really sick and now I feel much better in general...well so I haven't had time to be online here much.

Yeah, I should just stick with simple. It just gets so boring sometimes. I have been having some popcorn lately and my stomach isn't really happy about it, but not real bad. I probably shouldn't have it often. I have been using the Canola oil making the popcorn..maybe I should try another oil. Maybe the Safflower oil would work? I can't do any legumes so soybean oil is out.

Still funny to me that I seem to react similar to you with a lot of stuff. Maybe those genes that we "share" is the reason...

Probably true. I have truobles with a lot of gluten free stuff if I eat a lot of it, like I mentioned, and this is probably that kind of thing.

I seem to just have a really sensitive system since I got sick with Celiac. It has always been a little sensitive but not like it got 2003 when I got really bad.

I seem to not do good on gluten free processed stuff. I have only found one brand that is okay: Enjoy Life. I made some Kinnickiniks pizza on Monday and I had to live next to the bath room the next day. So I do mostly unprocessed stuff, which is fine I guess.

Thanks for everyones replies!

It's nice to see you again, too :) I'm really glad to hear that you're doing better and even working again--that's great!

I'm right there with ya on keeping things simple. I do much better that way, too--but it does get boring. I did try some popcorn the other day--I popped organic corn in the safflower oil--and didn't react! I avoided corn for months, and thought I'd try it. I don't plan to eat it often, but maybe once in a while.

I can't do legumes, either....yea, our reactions are so similar. It's got to be the genes! :lol:

Hope you feel better soon--keep in touch :)

I am gonna try "your" popcorn the next time. What brand of Safflower oil and organic popcorn do you use? I have been using regular popcorn, maybe I should do organic ones instead.

I can't do without this place so I am not going anywhere. ;)

Glad you're sticking around ;)

I used Hain Safflower Oil and Arrowhead Mills Organic Popcorn--I bought both at Whole Foods.

If you try it, let me know how it went.

I self dx in 2011 and have tested genetically pos for celiac. After many years of being gluten-free and still struggling there is NO doubt in my mind that Canola oil is an issue~it is simply a bad oil; highly processed, GMO (in everything) and most restaurants will never bother to use organic so that is what you are getting when you eat out. Any TIME I have something that contains it I end up w a migraine and feeling like I have been glutened for the next 24 hours. It's horrible stuff and  I also avoid Safflower for the same reasons. Sunflower and high qual Olive Oil keep me feeling good. Same deal with Xanthum Gum and many of the other subs used for gluten that you find in baked goods. Another thing to be mindful of is that many Celiacs don't realize they also have issues with histamine which can echo the symptoms of begin glutened and  is naturally found in many foods such as canned tuna, leftovers, spinach, probiotics and anything pickled.  It has taken a ton of research on my part as a patient and scientist to help figure this out and sadly my docs were zero help! The fish was most likely a factor. The only fish i don't have a histamine reaction to is the stuff that I catch, eat or freeze in the same day. I also freeze leftovers as the bacteria present in the food is what creates the histamine spike......

Yes, the genomics can be viewed as one component , my  tTG-IgA test  was high positive initially and I was not surprised.  My 23andMe showed me pos for HLA DQ2, but there are other proven epigenetic factors : doing chemo, the increased gluten bred into the wheat supply and glycophosphate which leads us back to canola farming practices.   BTW full disclosure, I have worked in genomics for about 15 years....;)

I do not have Celiac but my body does not tolerate Canola oil at all.  I am fortunate that I can eat just about anything else, but Canola Oil makes me sick (food poisoning type symptoms) within 20 to 60 minutes after eating.  I found out by complete accident a few years ago that it was canola oil when I simply fixed some scrambled eggs at a friends house and put a small amount of their oil in the pan before cooking the eggs. It was canola oil and I was sick within 20 minutes!  The good news is that after a few urgent runs to the bathroom I always seem okay again after eating it.  
 
It is becoming much harder now to find restaurants that don’t use it because it is cheap and being heavily, heavily marketed and sold by the Canadians (that is why it is called Canola Oil) so I eat at home a lot more now.
