Anyone Intolerant To Rice?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Trying to work out what has halted the progress I made while initially going gluten-free.

I suspect rice although I have been combining this with a tin of tuna (w/ sunflower oil) for an easy meal. For info it's the pre-cooked rice that you heat up in the microwave.

It may be cross contamination but just want to gauge general tolerance to rice on the forum.

Yes, I found that I am intolerant of rice and beans, both. But after staying away from them for a LONG time, I have recently found that I can have a little once in a blue moon and do ok. I've been having brown rice tho. Its quite the bummer when most of the gluten-free products replace the gluten with rice or bean flours!! I have discovered I can have tapioca bread (it DOES have rice flour in it) and Van's gluten-free waffles or pancakes but I can only have 2 slices at a time and not every day. I have to let 2-3 days pass before having again. It's ALOT of trial and error. When all my issues started, I would eliminate one thing and then realize it was better but not completely, so I'd figure out what else was bothering me and eliminate that. I finally ended up with a lits of about 7 foods on my intolerance list. Best wishes with going thru all that. Its not fun, but once you get symptom-free....it's SUCH a relief!

I did too. Thankfully, it went away after about 4 months.

Have you tried making that same meal with rice you've cooked yourself?

A lot of those pre-packaged foods have soy and other crap in them which could be the culprit and not the rice itself.

I find that I can have white rice without trouble but brown rice doesn't sit well. It's likely got too much for fiber/bran for my system to handle at this time.

I'll give it a go with white rice instead, cheers. Only reason I use the prepackaged food is that its nice and easy but you're right, I'll need to do more homecooked rice.

Rice makes me bloated - big time. My mom and sister are the same way. I avoid it big time.
