Dole Fruit In Plastic Containers

Recommended Posts

I have been eating these lately and feel like I have been glutened,

I called the company ( Dole) and they said all of their fruits

in cans and plastic are definitely gluten-free. However the label says

they are packaged in Thailand and they contain citric acid.

I know citric acid is OK in the US but what about overseas?

It says on the bottle that the peaches are from the US. Does

anyone have any thoughts or experience with this product?

I did think that maybe I am eating too many fruits for my

GI tract so I am avoiding them. I'd appreciate any and all

comments.

I'm new at this (2 months or so) and I've noticed that fruit of any sort really bothers me now, I can hardly eat it without a bad reaction. I've read on these boards that as your intestines heal the new skin is more sensitive then the old damaged stuff so that might be why. I'm just hoping that new skin, once there a will will calm down a bit, I love fruit and really miss it.

As paranoid as companies are about lawsuits, I seriously doubt Dole would claim the product was gluten-free unless they had checked the source of the ingredients.

I think you are right about the too much fruit and such, maybe it's the acid.

They wouldn't lie about being gluten-free, true, but it depends on their definition of gluten-free.

Yes....the sugars of certain fruits are hard to digest, as well. Certain fruits to be wary of if you still have symptoms are grapes, watermelons, etc.

Acid could be a problem--do you sometimes eat oranges or pineapples from Dole or as part of a mix? Additionally, the skin of an apple can be hard to digest.

....just a few things i thought of.....I, too, highly doubt that they would call their product gluten-free if they were unsure or hadn't run extensive tests.
