Orange Juice Sucks...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well I used to be able to drink OJ but in recent years I just can't digest it. Its too acidic for me. My BF always Nags me you need more juice and fruit... Yeah yeah I know.. So today he was drinking Odwalla OJ and said here have some.. I cringed and said Ok ONE sip.. I took one sip and New it was a mistake. I was Feeling good ALL day no stomach problems, As soon as I drank that I felt like I was gonna throw up. I can feel it in my throat the OJ, I burshed my teeth to get the taste gone, chewed gum, had a mint, ate a couple of chips... But nooo.. It just feels like it burns my stomach. So Im never and I mean NEVER drinking OJ again, I don't care if its the only between me and Death! Does anyone else have issues with OJ? I cant even eat Oranges anymore, I used to love them.

Our super, super silly DD seemed to start reacting to "oranges" out of the blue when we went really gluten free initially for her. If we are very selective about which orange juice and oranges that we make available to her now, she seems to do well with them. I am not convinced that her issue was with "oranges".

On the other hand, I have had a lifetime issue with pulp in orange juice. You could not make me drink the stuff unless I strained it. Now, that was a result of visiting my grandparents in Florida when I was 5 years old and totally overdosing on orange juice. :o oops!


My super silly red siren is my guiding light. She has been a tremendous lesson for me in how gluten affects different people in very different ways. She is a super duper silly girl that was simply born that way. I have no idea why I am so blessed to have her guidance.

I am going to go out on a limb here and ask. Do you have an intolerance to orang juice? Imo it sounds like just from that little sip, you may....I have the same prob with shrimp. I could eat it before, but just a little bite will send my stomach doing cart wheels. So horrible.

I haven't been able to eat oranges or drink orange juice for years now; it makes my psoriasis flare up horribly. I drink a glass, enjoy it, and within a day my psoriasis is bright red and painful, not just itchy.

I found out I couldn't tolerate OJ about a year ago...couldn't believe it because I love it...I've switched to AJ and some other mixed juices.

Has anyone been able to go back to OJ after healing with gluten-free?

Thanks!

I used to eat oranges almost every day before going gluten-free. Now, about 30 mins after eating one I'll get a sharp pain in my gut. I laid off of them for a while because I thought it was a fluke, but once I started eating them again, the same situation happened. I'm wondering if it's just the acidity and now my body can't handle it anymore.

I was just wondering the same thing. I had a few sips of OJ and felt naucious for the rest of the day. I'm not usually and OJ drinker-I drink V-8 so, I had never noticed.

Is this a celiac thing or an allergy/intolerance thing? Anyone?

whats your blood type?

there is a book called "eat right for your type" and for those of us with O orange juice is bad. all the foods are put into 3 categories: good, neutral, and bad. ironically wheat is listed as bad for O's too.

it suggests that O types drink pineapple juice along with a few others but i dont remember which exactly off hand, but my dad has tried to stick to pineapple juice and has had less issues than when he drank OJ

Eh. I have blood type B and while OJ was one of my favorite juices, I can't drink it anymore. I've read the blood type book and it claims type B can eat dairy...I can't eat dairy. I think a lot of that is coincidental. O is the most common blood type, and since celiac is estimated to be in 1 in 133 people...stands to reason most people with celiac would have type O blood.

Oranges don't hurt my stomach per se, but they make my immune system go haywire, triggering my psoriasis.

I've had trouble with orange juice too. If i just have a little it's okay, but too much makes me nauseous. Eating oranges is no problem though. It might very well be the acidity. I also seem to have trouble with tomatoes lately too. Do you have any problem with tomatoes or other relatively acidic foods?

in that case, it's probably not the juice or fruit per se but the acidity level. It's funny cause I had tomato in my salad at noon today and felt a little funny after, and same with the guacamole i made tonight. figured it was just my cold.

anyone else got tomato problems?

Since I became gluten sensitive, I'm unable to drink OJ, and eat citric fruits either.  I looking for other foods for my vitamin C intake.  Are their any suggestions on other foods that will provide vitamin C?
