People With Gluten Sensitivity

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if people with gluten sensitivity as opposed to celiac have to be as careful with cross contamination. Does it affect you the same? I'm assuming as with celiac it is different with everyone but do you worry as much about food produced in the same factory as wheat etc?

yes - cross contamination CAN STILL BE AN ISSUE!

about 2 weeks ago spring and allergy season showed up in my neighborhood. it became that much worse for me.

again, everyone is different though. i seem to be ok w/ quaker oats - but others can only eat gluten-free certified oats.

HOWEVER i had a reaction to their corn grits.... everyone came out of the woodwork to tell me about another company (but grits are corn so out they go - gluten-free or not.)

I have an allergy and CC is a BIG issue for me. My toddler got me last week and it was rather unpleasant.


Diagnosed with Gluten Allergy April 2010. Family history of Celiac disease and bowel cancers. Already feeling a billion times better since going gluten free.
