Testing Results

Recommended Posts

Thanks Mike. I don't know if you intend to include a positive list. I can understand if you don't want to include company names. Maybe you could at least include categories that I would not otherwise suspect. For instance I had no previous knowledge about oranges and strawberries or wine as possibilities. It explains a lot. My son swore that his strawberry smoothies were making him sick and I didn't want to believe him. I pushed them for a few days more than I would have had I reason to suspect strawberries. Now I have started washing our oranges after purchase. I like to get as much knowledge as possible. I can always later decide that it doesn't apply to my situation.

It really has dragged on.

Yes, and you bring up a great point and why I need to edit this list before just posting. I love strawberries and was not satisfied to give up on them (is one of the major reasons why I have tested so many things and still do) Thru testing, I discovered that Driscoll brand strawberries have been negative for gluten every time. I eat them now and don't even check em! Both organic and just regular type. I called them about my testing and they let me talk to their head food scientist. He explained that they raise all of their strawberries on plastic and have very strict rules about this for all of their suppliers that grow for them in the co-op. Berries are picked and placed right in the container in the field and go straight to cold storage and they do not use any type shelf life extenders. All the best, Mike

Thanks for that info. Is it enough to just wash the strawberries? Can you say more about shelf life extenders? Maybe in a different post.

Just a little thought here....lists are only good until the manufacturer changes the ingredients without notice. Mike has mentioned this as well.

Or the next batch is run on the line right after a wheat product.

Anyone eating the Kikkoman's yet?

Yes, I also wish to caution everyone about the use of any gluten-free list. Ingredients and manufacturing methods do change. I found this out the hard way recently. It's all chronicled on the "Liver Enzyme" thread. Please, be familiar with the labeling policies of the various companies that you buy products from, and always scan the labels for any changes. Please.

Be aware that it's sometimes just the luck of the draw in regard to when the product you have was processed in relation to the gluten containing products that are made in the same facility--or along the same lines. One bag of chips, for example, could be absolutely fine, while the next may have been run after a flavored variety with a bit of residue on the machinery. The gluten-free list would say these chips were fine, but would still trigger a reaction to someone sensitive.

It would be wonderful to have a sort of foolproof "master list" that we could follow and be assured that we were safe. I wished for one when I was first diagnosed but I quickly realized that approach was just not a good guage for me in real life.

Again, proceed with caution :)

Personally, I could only feel comfortable posting a POS list. No one would get hurt. People would avoid those foods.

It would absolutely kill me if I posted a NEG list and people trusted it and even 1 person got sick based on my list.

No way could I do that.

No way.

No way.

That's why it's important to be our own advocate. Whether you read about the gluten status of a product here, another site, in a book, or through personal recommendation, the bottom line is, what you put into your mouth of feed to your children, is your responsibility alone.

Learning to read labels had not generated any issues for me.

I agree that we are all responsible for what we eat. We absolutely still have to read labels. Just because Mike's negative list has fritos doesn't mean I'm going to eat them. You can't always tell just by reading the label. I believe Fritos has only 3 ingredients. If you dig deeper, Lays tells you that only the stax are made on dedicated lines, but you have to go to the website to get the info.

I think we are all different. For some people, they don't care if it's made on the same line as gluten foods. I try to stay away from foods made on the same lines as other gluten foods. I'm not as worried about it if it is made in the same facility. I am happy about the Driscoll's brand strawberries and will try them.

I am more interested in the positive list.

I should also add to this that because of Mike's testing, I will be switching my OJ. I'll still read the label each time I buy it. I always, always read labels. As I mentioned in a previous post, I think the strips can be beneficial if I am trying to rule a food out. I don't want to go through a challenge and get sick again. Yeah, I know they may not be perfect. A lot of testing isn't including the celiac panel. So, to each his own.

Right Jenny! Kikkomans has wheat in it and it tested NEG. Neither you are I are going to eat Kikkomans soy sauce because it clearly states it has wheat regardless of the Elisa test. That is why the NEG list doesnt interest me either. I cannot trust a NEG with the Elisa test because of my results. However, based on my tests, a POS can be trusted because they DO detect large amounts gluten (I just question the sensitivity of the test). So only the POS list has value to me personally.

I found out today that mushrooms can be grown on straw. Especially straw mushrooms. Have you found any positive tests for mushrooms? Again, does washing produce help? (Have you done any tests on this?)

Have not tested any mushrooms. I have tested Redbridge beer, did I already mention that............ All the best, Mike

Oh and the washing of the oranges did not seen to help when I got glutened. It is my understanding that the gliadin protein is non-water soluble and tends to be sticky. It will absorb in alchohol and this is why if you ever get glutened while drinking, man is it ever worse. It also takes somewhere around 600-700 degrees to burn up this protein. This is why you can still get glutened from a grill or skillet and such. All the best,Mike

That explains a few things. I had a really bad episode right before I went gluten free. Wine plus this spinach pastry that had gluten as the first ingredient. It convinced me. Thanks for the washing info. Maybe I can make some sort of alcohol solution. I just ordered Bards from an out of town friend. Can't get it here. Thanks for that too. Also explains a few things.

I use rubbing alcohol and water mixture. I might be a bit anal with this, oh well. I wipe my cell phone off when I get home and will wipe off the counter tops on occasion just for good measure. Hey when you are hyper sensitive to this gluten deal, what the heck. Yes, law suite, not going there right now, besides, if a person starts naming names, it just might set back some of the progress that has been made with regards to labeling ect. ect. I could see companies pulling the "Gluten free" off of the labels in a heart beat if they have a bunch of folks running to them claiming "I got glutened and I can prove it." In time, not right now in my opinion. Mike
