Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

have any of you been glutened by blue diamond products. i know i am sensitive enough to react to amy's gluten free and i am wondering if blue diamond is a shared facility or a cross contamination issue.

if not then i probally have some other intolerances i need to figure out.

thanks,

I've had quite a few experiences that left me a little wary of blue diamond nuts (almonds, in particular - regular, oven roasted, etc. -- I don't ever buy the seasoned ones). Even though they are supposedly gluten free I swear, every time I would eat them I would end up with an unhappy gut.

I don't know if it's a contamination issue or if I just have a had time digesting nuts at this phase of my recovery (I can eat peanut butter with no problems), so I just quit eating them. I found raw shelled almonds in the produce section of my grocery store (a Kroger) packaged by a company that says processed in a gluten free facility. I seem to be able to eat those with no problems.

I have this all the time without issue. I daresay it might be the nuts. How often have you noticed a reaction?

At first I thought it was the carageean in the almond milk, other things with carageean seemed.... Then I thought it was an egg intolerance when I baked with almond flour and a larger proportion of eggs than usual-even when I was using an almond flour processed in a dedicated gluten-free facility, I still thought it was the eggs. I've had a strong aversion to eggs. Never imagined that it could be the almonds until I was allergy tested and guess what-I reacted to almonds! Eliminated almonds and other things and happy gut! Carageean and eggs are still not proven innocent yet.

Blue Diamond is pretty good about stating CC risks. Nut allergies and reactions are very common. You can sort out an almond sensitivity with allergy testing, or by challenging with almonds in the shell that have no CC risk.

I only eat nuts that I shell myself. I have had problems with other nuts. I make my own nut milks too.

Remember peanut butter would be totally different because peanuts are not nuts, they are legumes.
