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 tried the Safflower oil with my popcorn and my stomach did seem to approve of it better than the Canola. Probably needs more tests to really know for sure.

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....;)

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
