? For The Pros About Food Sensitivities

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I've been staying away from corn, as I've realized it doesn't agree with me. I've felt SOOO much better since I cut that out. I went to a baby shower on Saturday and brought a dip/salady dish. That was gluten-free, obviously. I brought corn chips for it for the others and brought my own crackers for myself. All I had while I was there was fruit salad and the dip with my crackers. That afternoon, evening and the next day I was NOT feeling good. I was suspecting I had gluten somehow but then I started thinking about the corn chips. If someone dipped the corn chips into the same dip could that small an amount have given me a reaction? I know it's like that with gluten but do you find it's like that with other foods you're sensitive to? Just trying to figure it all out. :)

I am by no means an "Expert" but I would say that yes if you have a severe sensitivity that you could have been CC'd by the corn chips touching your dip. I am very lucky (or maybe unlucky) that I do not have reactions to CC. I know that it still can do damage, but I have a hard time knowing when that does happen.

Just my 2 cents....

Yes, you can be glutened with the cc from the dip. Although, I think frito lay corn chips are gluten free (plain ones). I was glutened when I brought some barbeque beef to work and everyone took the spoon and rubbed it on thier bread when making their sandwiches. Was sick for several days because of this. Needless to say, I no longer participate in shared lunches at work....

yeah, just about anything could have gotten into your food if it was sitting on a buffet table. Not just the corn chips but crumbs from something else on the table.

Buffets scare the crap out of me!
