Udi's Mystery-- Oh No! Help!

I so agree. How can they say that certain levels are safe when they have excluded those for whom they weren't safe!!

It's as if those who are more sensitive than the norm don't count.

ANY preservatives or processed food ingredients will aggravate GERD. Eat natural foods all day long like fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and meat and you will be as close to rid as GERD as you will ever be. This bread is heavily processed.

That's my understanding too, if you can't stick to it throughout the study, they don't count you in the results. pretty stupid system if you ask me. It's almost like saying, if you absolutely have an incredibly negative reaction, we won't include you in the study results. Whats the point then? Stupid.

Suggesting that you should analyze something for which you have no data is equally stupid, if not more so. People who drop from studies are ALWAYS reported as part of the analysis. That's why I mentioned them. Are you suggesting it would be preferable to invent data???

In a paper, you report exactly what you see. "Subject #4 was feeling unwell and declined the biopsy" may be all you can say because the rules on clinical trials allow people to drop out at any time for any reason. More often than not, they just don't show up. The researchers who managed to find out their subjects dropped because they were feeling nauseous from the codex bread did an unusually good job.

I have felt that way many times. It's not a good feeling.

Perhaps people who are more sensitive than the norm and feel left out need to work hard to make themselves available for clinical trials. Recruiting people willing to participate in clinical trials is brutally hard, and keeping people in the trial even harder. With all the bad behavior I've seen from people in studies it's a wonder we get clinical data at all. :rolleyes:

Actually, being a scientist, I have always been interested in those clinical trials. I also live near a medical center. I always check them out, but I hardly ever find one that I am qualified for. I don't only look at the celiac ones either. They are often quite specific in their requirements Right now my daughter and I are doing one about relationships between teens and parents. She is making some good pocket money.

Ate Udi's bread a few weeks ago and broke out in a rash within 30 minutes. The potato starch got me. Uuuuhhhh.

I too had a terrible reaction of stomach upset when i eat Udi's gluten-free bread products.  I am not diagnosed as celiac either.    It's difficult enough getting gluten-free bread products in a restaurant let alone having to ask them what brand they carry.  Very frustrating.   I find the glutino products the best.  But let me tell ya, my stomach is cranky and anything can set me off sometimes, i.e. lactose, oils, chocolate etc.
