Last night I awoke at 4:00 am with horrible stomach pain and lower intestinal pain. There was a lot of twisting and lots of cramps and gas pain. I heard a lot of noises too. It was so bad that it woke me up. I also had a terrible sinus headache to go with it so it's either I'm getting sick or I ate something that got me. Probably the latter as I snuck in one of my hubby's potatoe (gnocchi) pasta. later I read the ingredients and it had Wheat flour. I didn't think that one would cause such a reaction but I didn't have anything else that could have done me in like that.

Anyway, I decided to try some toast for breakfast and toasted the new bread I bought yesterday. It was the same gluten-free bread I had been using but this one was a new flavor .... Rasin Pecan. I was a little skeptical because there were more ingredients like fruit juices in there.

So, here it is a few hours later and my guts is sour and sore and swollen!!! I feel like I need to go home and lie down. I can't seem to get it right! Even if I didn't hve that reaction last night to that potatoe pasta i still would have head the raisin Pecan Bread and this probably would have happened anyway. I get so afraid to try new things because of situations like this. It took forever to get me to try the new bread and now I know I won't be having it! has anyone else had this bread? I ca't remember the Manufacturer but I bought it in Whole Foods in the refrigerated bread section. I guess I may have to stick to the regular plain white rice bread.

So much for being adventurous!

You could very well still be reacting to the gluten in the other food. There is also a possibility that you are allergic to nuts. Make sure you stay glutenfree!

You could certainly get a bad reaction from a whole piece of pasta, considering that cross-contamination (for example, stirring wheat pasta and then stirring gluten-free pasta with the same spoon) could cause a reation in most celiacs.

Whole Foods most commonly sold gluten-free bread is Food for Life brand. They also make a lot of gluten based breads, so their is a risk of cross-contamination, unless you have verified from the company that their gluten-free breads are produced in a dedicated room separate from the gluten breads. I personally have not liked the taste or texture of any of their breads, so I have never gotten to the point of checking with the company.

Another thing that bothers me with a lot of gluten-free breads is guar gum. It causes severe gas, bloating, irritation and tenderness in the intestines. You might want to check into whether guar gum bothers you or not. I try to only use products that are made with xanthan gum instead. It is worth the extra money to invest in the xanthan gum for baking also.

God bless,
