    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Can't Figure Out

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Noah has had diarrhea off and on for a couple of weeks. I can't figure out where he is getting gluten from. He is going to school now, but I really don't think he is eating anything without telling me. He is at the OVERLY truthful stage so I just don't think he would sneak it.

I did get a couple of new things at the grocery store, but I check ingredients thoroughly. so I am just having a really hard time with it.

Rice Dream milk (instead of our usual Almond Milk)

Chex Rice cereal

and Oscar Meyer honey ham ( I usually get the Oscar Meyer Naturals Ham)

Has anybody had any experience with these foods causing glutening???

My bet would be on the Rice Dream. If you do a search for it here, you'll see there's been lots of discussion about it being processed with barley enzymes, so even though it says 'gluten free' and it likely meets the new standards for it, really sensitive people may still react.

I noticed I was still having some issues a week or two ago, and I was still drinking this stuff.......I switched brands and haven't had any further issues.

Hope you get it figured out!

tired is right. Many react to Rice Dream. I would nix it. Have you tried the hemp milk. It is very good.

I'm going to strongly agree with the Rice Dream. I gave it to my son for 2 1/2 or 3 months without realizing that it had the low levels of gluten / barley. We used it to cook with and for my son's cereal since we were also trying to keep him off of dairy. We stopped the Rice Dream and within a week his stomach pains were gone. We had tried to figure it out for MONTHS!! He's now back on dairy and has no issues!!

He also eats Rice Chex with no problems, but we haven't tried the ham.

Good luck! Margaret

thanks everyone!!! Out it goes!! I will go back to the almond milk. I only got rice dream because they don't sell almond milk at the store I usually do my shopping at (commissary, we are military) and I didn't want to have to keep making an extra stop. Almond milk was the only thing I was going to the other store for. I had not gotten it before just because I didn't think he would would like the taste. I never would have thought it had gluten in it. :huh: But I am glad to know that it was one of these products... And not him getting gluten at school, THAT is a lot harder to control.
