Red Bob's Mill Flour Reaction

Recommended Posts

Twice now I have tried Red Bob's. Once gluten-free brownie mix and second gluten-free flour mix. Both times sick for days. Has anyone else gotten sick? I read there is an allowable level in gluten-free foods of gluten.

I'm feeling overwhelmed with everything I eat that contains gluten (or casein). Maybe it was poor Red Bob's Mill Flour (much maligned by me) or Vitamin E, Vitamin Fish Oil, baby aspirin? I was ill for days following spagittee sauce but I had put my much loved TVP in it and it also had a bit of cheese in it (and who knows what else?).

Thanks for the support. It gets easier, right?

;) it does get easier, but never easy---its always something we have to be very aware of--we always have to know exactly what we are putting in our mouths--can never take anything for granted--that's when we screw up and believe me--i know exactly what i am talking about---almost 4 yrs now and i still goof---but we cant be hard on ourselves cause we really have a mountain to climb---its not a gluten free friendly world, its getting better, but there is still much to do---but you do get used to it---------deb

I would hesitate on putting the blame on Bob's gluten-free Flour Mix. I have used it exclusively lately and neither my granddaughter or I have had any bad reactions at all. I use it to bake with and also to thicken with for gravy and sauce. Bob's is a quality company and there are LOTS of people using his products. I would look elsewhere in your daily doings or in what you have baked for your problems. I am so happy to have found the gluten-free flour mix as it is so very handy. I know other people like other mixtures that they make themselves and I may try those some day, but this one is so easy. Barbara

Bob's red mill has a dedicated facility for their gluten free products. On the package it is clearly listed gluten-free and is made in that facility, otherwise you run the risk of contamination if it is one of their other products.

Yes it does get easier so hang in there :D Bob's Red Mill's gluten free products are made in a gluten free facility as Jessica stated. If it says gluten free it was done in that facility. I have never reacted to this brand and find this brand very good.

Hi- I have had trouble with the flour replacements, especially amarath..can feel awful for 2 to 3 days. Chebe flour mix seems to be okay. Basically I have had to stay away from gluten-free bread of any sort (2 yrs gluten-free). Also have problems with any milk products, eggs, ect. also. I am blaming this on leaky gut following damage from gluten! Think the best thing is to listen to your body...it will let you know what you cannot tolerate. sjb-TX :)

I suspect the baby aspirin...I recently contacted St. Joseph's about their heart-healthy aspirin, which is an 81 gm baby aspirin and they couldn't guarantee that their product is gluten-free.

I've always had a problem with Bob's red mill. At first I was blaming everything else. Now i just don't use it....it's not worth it to me.

You also may be allergic to something else. I recently had YORK food allergy testing done..........and guess what? I'm also allergic to buckwheat! I know for sure buckwheat was in one of his gluten-free mixes but not in the other that I reacted to. I can't figure it out but I don't want to go through being that sick again so I just avoid the mixes.

Good luck
