We Keep Getting Glutened With Vegetable Oil

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I would never have thought that 100% veg oil would be a problem, but there must be cross contamination. Both my son and I have gotten sick with spectrum safflower oil as well as 2 "generic" oils - a soybean oil and a generic safflower.

Can anyone tell me what brands of oil we might find safe? I have none now and desperate to get some safe oil.

thanks so much

Spectrum Safflower oil.. We don't use any vegetable oil (I would just stay away from it anyway it is really bad for you, when I can't have something it usually is something I shouldn't have anyway so I consider myself lucky I can't have it, it keeps me healthier)

Yep, went to spectum's page and their cooking oils share the machinery with wheat germ oil. AAAHHH!!! How do I know that someone elses won't??

I never even thought about oils being produced on shared equipment. Makes me shiver! I don't think I've ever gotten glutened by vegetable oil, but I guess I'll be wondering whenever I'm feeling a bit off.

Anyway, one brand of safflower oil I know of (but never tried) is Flora. It's expensive. I'd have to guess that MacNut is safe, since all they make is macadamia oil from what I know. It's a wonderful oil, though not quite as high a smoke point as safflower. Since coconut oil is processed so differently than most, I'd suppose there's a good chance it's not made on equipment shared with wheat products. The best coconut oil I know of is produced by centrifuge on dedicated equipment. If you like coconut, you'll LOVE this oil. No other I've tried even comes close, no matter what the claims. But coconut oil is not a salad oil, since it's solid below about 76 degrees. It is very healthy though.

However, if you're very allergic to ragweed, that might rule out safflower and sunflower, as both are apparently related to ragweed. But then so is lettuce, and a bunch of other common things. Besides, cooking oils are supposed to be refined enough to handle high temperatures, which should mean very little impurities. So allergic reactions might not be something to worry about for most people.

My thinking is that oils from things other than seeds (and maybe some nuts) would require different processing, thus different equipment. At least for part of the process.

Thanks HTH! I'll look at those. We do love coconut!

I;ve also done research this morning and Bertolli says their olive oil is gluten-free w/no cross contamination.

Also called crisco, and though they make a veg spray w/flour in it, they say it is kept separate and all other oils from them are 100% gluten-free no cross contamination.

I tested sensitive to safflower, sunflower and soy bean oil. Right now I am sticking to olive oil and coconut oil. I am hoping I can bring back the other oils once my stomach heals more.

Most chips are fried in safflower, sunflower or soybean oil. Not that chips are healthy, but a good crunch from a chip would be much appreciated.

I use sunflower oil for deep frying, due to the hypoallergenic nature and high smoke point (just make sure it is fresh). NOW what I might suggest are also options, air fryer. They take much longer to get the job done but you can toss whatever you might be frying in a tiny bit of whatever is safe for you IE Avocado Oil, Refined Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil are the best bets. You could also have an issue with digesting fats, so light air fries could be something that could help. Personally, I only eat air fried foods, as anything too oily like that tend to float and make me sick, but I have issues with digestive enzymes breaking down food.

If you want, you can always bake fries.  I use Oreda brand.  They are labeled gluten-free.  Granted not the same as homemade, but  fast, easy and safe.  Also consider cutting/slicing and roasting potatoes in the oven.  I typically use olive oil for that.  Works for a variety of veggies.

    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
    Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
Hi Mom, I am so sorry you're getting the run around. Yes, the links worked for me too & that poor little thing! Cyclinglady gave you excellent advice. I really can't add anything to it but everything she says is right on. Keep advocating!  Read this: https://www.sjsreview.com/8752/features/sophomore-establishes-celiac-support-group/ I found how you can contact her. GenerationGF.Houston@gluten.org Here's the web page.
