Stonyfields Yogurt

Hi all. I just ate some Stonyfield Organic Cream on Top Strawberries and Cream yogurt and

am having a reaction to it. Is this unusual? I emailed them and asked if it's gluten free.

They wrote me back (and even gave me a link to this site!!) :)

Hello Connie,

Thanks for contacting us about our gluten-free products. We know that

choosing foods can be difficult for those with celiac disease, and we

It might have been from the strawberries. I have had problems with strawberry ice cream (gluten free). Sometimes strawberries are grown on straw and it seems like some more sensitive celiacs like me can have problems with produce grown on straw. Thanks for the head up. I eat that brand of yogurt and I have been suspecting it lately. I had already decided to do an elimination study on it, and now I know I am doing the right thing.

Yeah, I had about 3 spoons of it and my bottom lip got that numb feeling and i got dizzy and my legs felt funny, so I would say it probably is the strawberries maybe. It is good, though, that now that I am going gluten free, I am SO aware of how I feel. I actually LIKE it! Keeps things from building up, I suppose :P

Thanks for the info from Stonyfields. That's great that they use an even more strict set point than the proposed "Gluten-Free" limit of 20ppm. That lip sensation is kinda odd, doesn't sound specifically like a gluten intolerance related problem. Was it a somewhat sudden thing or did you notice the symptoms starting a few hours after consumption?

If anything, I personally know that it's possible to be allergic to strawberries. It's one of the items on the list I test positive for and an allergic reaction would have occurred shortly after consumption as opposed to the lengthy onset of an intolerance related problem.

Additionally, aren't you only a few days into your gluten-free diet? Hell if you're in the first week still then you shouldn't expect to be able to attribute anything you feel to what you're eating. Most people go through withdrawal that involves your body reacting to just about everything including water for the first week or so.

REALLY? I didn't know that or I don't understand that :unsure: Yesterday I reacted to coffee and today to this yogurt. This is good information, but that's normal? Why? Because there's still toxins in my system?

Yesterday my right pinky finger got sore and swollen and when I woke up today, it's normal.

I know this, I'm being a big ol' B-you-know-what today. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm the sweetest girl, everyone loves me, I'm funny as all get out and I'm acting like a raging lunatic this evening. This is NOT me at all! I just broke my friend's frigerator cuz I slammed it so hard. I fixed it too.

Is this normal? OMG - I'm being a monster! And I just said something hateful to my daughter. Is this normal? Is this a part of it?

You really do have to give your body a couple of weeks to detox from the gluten. In the meantime, the mood problems can probably be attributed to gluten withdrawal. Gluten acts like an opioid to our bodies, and the body does not like being deprived of something it is used to having and is addicted to. Just apologize profusely to everyone and tell them you won't be yourself for the next two or three weeks, but you just can't help it :)

Good, high quality dark chocolate reacts in; your brain and can help you feel better. My first 2weeks, I had a headache and was depressed. The chocolate helped. Also, find little things to be happy about, like your flowers growing better then expected or that gluten-free pretzels are really good with almond butter..

The human body is a ridiculously complicated matter. For each little thing you do wrong to it, it will find a dozen or more ways to compensate for the offense and keep you running. Some of these compensations are immediate, some take longer to fully balance out. When you remove a negative stimulus that has been constantly been forcing your body to make adjustments, your body can not just immediately go back to "normal" operating status on all systems without causing a huge amount of stress.

I used to eat the plain and vanilla yogurt without problems. I am still doing a dairy free trial so I'm not consuming any right now. When I do reintroduce dairy, yogurt will probably be one of the first things I try.
