Did I Gluten My Hubby?

Recommended Posts

Hi all and please feel free to add ur comments:

I have a list of wht hubby ate yesterday and need some answers if he got "Glutened"

He eats this every mornin and is okay with it:

Coco pebbles and Vitamin D milk (he eats 1 bowl every morn at work and does fine)it was on someones food list this site as being safe ;)

but he had another bowl after I left for the store <_<

Then later after I returned from the store had "CANDY"

Which I thought were safe? :huh: they r : they were on someones food list this site as being safe ;)

snicker (mini's) 3 musketeer (mini's) plain M&M's

Then he has 2 ears of home grown corn-on-the cob with gluten-free butter

Then I made spagheti which everytime in the past it made us both have severe belly aches after eating it (maybe the noodles) but I bought wheat free gluten free :(

The sauce I used read as follows :

Ingred's : RAGU 100 0/0 Natural <_< Ingreds:

tomato puree (water,tomato paste) dieced tomatoes, corn syrup, mushrooms, oinions, green bell peppers, sotbean oil, salt, garlic powder, parsely, basil, spices, Natural Flavor.

So was it the sauce or just a virus cuz son and he both have had a headache on and on for a few days ( they thought it was that they need new glasses) :huh:

Has anyone else used this sauce before or eatin these candies ?

Please if u can help let me know !

My local Celiac group gave us a warning before Halloween last year that mini-candy bars are not considered safe because, according to the manufacturer, they don't stop the equipment to clean between flavors. So crunch bars with malted rice and safe bars like plain chocolate have a certain amount of cross contamination.

Also, how long have your guys been gluten-free? Newbies tend to have a problem with dairy and the second bowl of cereal and milk may have caused problems too. But tummy and head, it was probably cross contamination from the mini-bars.

If anyone else sees another possibility, please jump in.

Thanks so much Karen :)

U r proly right on the money it had to be the candy bars :(

He also ate some of the 3 must. before I got home :angry:

He has never had a problem with milk or it's family , but I aways have .

So I took his candy bars away and told him he could still have his M&M's :D

He has been gluten-free since 2 months ago and only had 2 spells since 1. he ate soemthing from vending machine at work (animal crackers) 2. yesterday form candy bars

Thanks so much for shedding the light to wht was the culprit :)

I also e-mailed RAGU for any hidden ingred's .

Note for future reference that full size bars are okay, it's just the mini and bite size that have that issue. Don't lay a finger on his Butterfinger! :-)

BTW, Mi-Del Animal Crackers are really good and they make good bannna pudding cookies too.

Gluten Free Candy & Easter Candy

Notes: Please beware of candy that is not in its normal shape. Often times, that means the ingredients are different, and could very well contain gluten. Bags of mixed treats that do have gluten containing treats that touch each other should be discarded due to cross-contamination. If there is a treat that may not be listed on here, do not be alarmed just check with the manufacturer.

Another thought...

Have you cooked any regular pasta in your pot? Used your colander for regular pasta? If so, there might be gluten in there.

Not sure about the sauce. "Natural flavors" could mean anything. I usually use organic sauce or make my own because it is easy to make.

We don't go the candy here because of so many food allergies so I don't know about that but I do know that they say to check the ingredients on the mini ones because they might not be the same as the large ones.

----snip----

That's a good one I had forgotten. It would be almost impossible to get the colander completely clean of gluten from previous pasta. Also any wooden kitchen tools? I used to have a wooden spaghetti fork, haven't seen another like it since diagnosis. I didn't get the word about wooden implements and cutting boards until 6 months or so after the diagnosis.
