Problem With Coconut?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It does have a slight coconut smell and a hint of coconut taste. It tastes very smooth and is really white. It sure beats the spectrum (it was fully processed/refined) I had bought without knowing better. Big difference! I am going to try and melt some and put it on popcorn with some salt. I'll let you know what I think of it.

I tried it on popcorn with some salt and everyone liked it! :D

Hi Alex :)

 

A couple of things--it's not unusual for us to find we are intolerant to other foods once we go gluten-free. Possible reasons are a leaky gut, or that the intolerance was there all along, but taking the biggest offender (gluten) away causes it to "suddenly" become a problem. Some of these intolerances may be temporary--like lactose. Once the villi heal, many are able to consume it again with no problems.

 

My personal opinion, and from some experience--when you determine that you are intolerant to a particular food, stay away from it completely for at leat 6 months--then if you want, try some again. It's just one of the many things that are different for each of us ;)

 

I happen to be intolerant to coconut. It didn't become apparant until I'd been gluten-free for several months. With coconut, I get cramping, stomach pain, and nausea. I find it's pretty easy to stay away from--but something to watch out for are water filters. Lots of them use charcoal made with coconut hulls. I found this out the hard way!

 

Good for you keeping a food diary! :D It helps out so much in the beginning with all this.

When I became gluten free about 7 months ago, it seemed like I was okay with coconut.  About 2 weeks ago, when I have any coconut product (manna, oil, flour) I feel flush, my stomach gets upset, my neck gets tight and my glands swell. I haven't tried coconut milk since this has started.

I am on the Paleo diet which has helped me tremendously.  So now I have been sticking with just almond flour if I need to bake. That doesn't seem to give me any problems so far, thank goodness! Has anyone tried other flours with good results?

It seems different things are allowed on different versions of paleo diet.  Some flours I think are allowed on some versions - arrowroot, tapioca, plantain, chestnut,  and tiger nut. 

 

edit - some allow buckwheat, if I remember right
