I have allergies to soy and cane sugar (which are often added to peanut butter). So I use Whole Foods 365 peanut butter which contains peanuts and salt. That brand is fairly inexpensive at $1.69 a pound. I also buy 'grind your own' peanut butter from a local coop or Fred Meyer.

I use Jif all the time and have had no problem with it. My mom wants me to use some natural peanut butter without hydrogenated oil but um I haven't brought my tastebuds up to that level yet lol...anyhow, there are a number of peanut butters that are fine...if you feel bad after it try another brand known to be gluten free and if you still feel bad you may want to look and see if you may have another sensitivity

Me and son are soy intolerant, soy makes us feel real sick, so we use the Skippy Natural which has palm oil instead of soybean oil. The Skippy Natural is delicious, tastes just like 'regular' peanut butters.

Maybe you are soy intolerant?

Or if not, you could use any kind of All Natural peanut butter that has nothing else added, and dump out the oil that rises to the top. These kinds of peanut butter are stiff though and hard to spread.

Best wishes to all.

Does anyone else use the peanut butter. If so, "Double Dipping" could be the problem. I have always used a different brand of peanut butter than the rest of my household to prevent this.

jif seems to be fine for me, but i wont use it if it looks like someone else in my family may have used it.

i also LOVE "better than peanut butter" from Trader Joes!

it has only 100 calories for 2 tablespoons and way less fat and it has all the taste that i need!

try it!

I also enjoy the "natural" peanut butter (the oil rises to the top). I found it at my local grocery store (Kroger) in their health food section. It is expensive, but VERY good. They also make other nut-butters "natural." I haven't tried them, but for people allergic to peanuts, it's an option. I don't eat a lot of pb so, when I buy a jar, it lasts awhile. Now you have me craving pb! :)

Oh, and I also eat Jif on occasion without a problem. Is it possible you had a cross contamination issue at your house (family, friends, etc.)?

Take care. -Julie

I use Smucker's Natural, which has only peanuts and salt in it. Also LOVE the Peanut Butter and Company's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl All Natural P.B. which has peanuts, evaporated cane juice, raisins, cinnamon, organic palm oil and salt. It is available at Kroger and many other regular and specialty stores in my area. If I feel that the natural P.B. is a little bland tasting, I add a little honey and sometimes ground sesame.

I use the smart balance one since I'm trying to increase the fat in my diet and it has added omega 3's in it. Tastes fine and no problems not to mention I'm extra sensitive these days since i've only been gluten-free for 6 weeks today from my diagnosis.

Good luck :), I may try the all natural peanut butter as well next time.

I notice in your signature that you're intolerant to most peanut butters.

I'm wondering if you might possibly be intolerant to legumes? I became intolerant to them after I was gluten-free for several months. Legumes were the last things I discovered I was sensitive to, and when I omitted them, there was a huge difference in the way I felt.

I eat almond butter--at first, I really missed peanut butter, but now I crave almond butter and don't miss the peanut at all.

Legumes are soy, all beans (string, navy, pinto, black, chick peas, lentils, peas, peanuts, etc.) Cashews, I believe, are related--I react to them, but not as bad.

There was a sports doctor who used to post here--he told me that people with autoimmune diseases often have problems with legumes. I asked him about it shortly after I discovered I was intolerant. Prior to this, I was eating some form of legume every day.

I am also an almond butter convert. Peanuts and I for some reason don't agree, they equal lots of gas for me.

Almond butter and honey is one of my favorites. Great for dipping apples, bananas, celery or on gluten-free toast.

If you have not tried sunflower seed butter, give it a whirl. It is really fantastic, IMO. I like it even better than peanut butter now. :)

For protein, I have to rely on meat, basically. I am intolerant to all sources of plant protein, unfortunately. I can eat beef and pork, but have trouble with chicken unless it's a kosher brand called Empire.

Some people can do goat's milk--but it still contains casein, so you'd have to try it to see if you can tolerate it. I use Pacific Almond Milk. They also make a rice milk.

I don't react well to vitamins--I only take calcium (Citrical) at this point.

I used to bruise terribly--my arms looked like I was battered. Just resting my arm on the kitchen table would result in a bruise. I was found to be anemic--as soon as that began to resolve on the gluten-free diet, the bruising stopped. It took probably 4 months, though.

If you can tolerate meat, that would be a good thing to try and get some of each day. It will provide protein and iron. Almonds also have protein--a serving of almond butter has about 5 grams.

I had to do an elimination diet (suggested by my allergist) to finally determine what I was sensitive to. This took several months, but it was worth it. Just recently, I began to suspect potatoes--I challenged them after being off them for a week--and had a reaction (D and cramping).

Let me know if there's anything else I can do :)

Isis,

Also, another cause of bruising is not enough vitamin K. Good sources are green leafy veggies and broccoli, kale, spinach, and parsley. :)

What does Kale taste like? How do you eat it? Is it gassy? I know spinich is....Thank You for All your help.

You're welcome :)

Kale is good sauteed in a little olive oil and garlic (if you can eat garlic--if not, no problem). You will want to cook it until it's tender enough for you. None of the dark leafy greens cause gas for me--not even broccoli.
