Reaction To Udi Granola

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had a reaction to Udi's granola? I tried the all natural granola last night and I had a really bad reaction. I got a gut ache and skin irritation within a few minutes of eating it. I don't plan to try it again; however, I was wondering if anyone else has had a reaction. I eat Udi's bread and bagels all the time without any problems, so I was a little surprised when I had problems with the granola.

Did you make sure to get the gluten-free granola? They also have traditional granola. My daughter doesn't tolerate oats at all, gluten-free or otherwise, so we've never tried the Udi's granola (love everything else Udi's though).

It was the gluten free version...all it contains is: Certified Gluten Free Oats, Wildflower Honey and Canola Oil.

Not all of us tolerate oats. Sounds like you might be one of the group.

I reacted to that too. It's labeled "gluten-free" so it looks okay, but it's full of oats.

I can not handle the oats. Glutened or certified gluten free sends my body into turmoil.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Thanks everyone...I'm happy to hear that I'm not alone. I read that oats were okay as long as they weren't cross-contaminated...guess I learned something new.

I realize this thread is old, but the only thing different in my day yesterday was some Udis gluten-free Sweet and Crunchy Vanilla Granola I ate right after dinner.  I had bad reflux last night and was extremely tired before bed.  I woke up this morning still feeling tired after a full eight hours, it was hard to go to the bathroom (I'm a mostly reformed big C sufferer since going gluten-free), I magically gained three pounds from yesterday morning despite staying well within my calorie goal and I'm so bloated.  It's not even around that time of the month for me, so I know it's not that.  

 

I had cookies a few months ago that had oats in them, and thought maybe that caused a reaction, but wasn't positive.  I got extremely tired and bloated, but I had nausea and the big D, which I never get, so those symptoms were different than what I'm experiencing now.  

 

I ate so much oatmeal before going gluten-free, I just stopped eating it after going gluten-free and because of reading that at first oats, even certified gluten-free oats, may be a problem.  With the way I'm feeling now, I'd bet money I'm still not ready for oats.

 

I feel so apathetic, and the other day I made a post on here about how excited I was that I was feeling so fantastic and very much looking forward to this year!  I ended up with a snow day today and have so much to get done with organizing after the holidays, but the only thing I want to do is go back to sleep and hopefully wake up and feel better  :(

Happy to have answers  :)

Hi POP,

 

So sorry your feeling crummy.  I haven't had any oats for the last two years but a week ago Hubs picked up the Udi's Oats for me, they are in the pantry.  I'll get them out today and munch during the OSU (My Team) Bowl game.  I'll let you know what happens.  I haven't really seen any other posts about Udi's oats, just gluten free oats in general.  Will be interesting to see if others have had an issue.

 

Drink lots of water and use a laxative if you need too.  I am also a constipation sufferer.  Eating a bunch of raisins should help too.

Thanks, Colleen!  ending up sleeping a good bit today, took some milk of magnesia, have been drinking my water and am feeling a bit better.  based on my two experiences, I think I'll leave oats out for another few months and try again later.  I hope your experience is better!! 

 

Super exciting Friday night ahead consisting of more water and movie watching since it seems that MoM is doing its job too well  <_<

Hey POP,

 

I ate about a handful of the Udi's Sweet @ Fruity Cranberry Granola last night.  I had no problems whatsoever.  The ingredients are the same except for the added cranberries and walnuts.  Like I said before, this was my time eating oats for almost 2 years so I'm glad to know I can eat them.  Looks like you should stay away from all oats, maybe try again in a year or so?

Colleen, I'm glad to hear eating the granola went well will no side effects!!

 

 I've been sleeping a lot...10 hours each these past two nights and that never happens.  The brain fog was terrible yesterday.  I made myself go grocery shopping yesterday, and it felt like an out of body experience.  My best interpretation of what brain fog is to me is when I wake up it feels like there is a weight pressing down on my head, but it's not a typical headache feeling.  My head had been feeling completely open like my brain could reach the sky.  Strange description, I know, but that's the best I've got for now  :)  I'm still bloated and retaining water, but hopefully that will subside soon.

 

No oats for a long time for me.  I can't believe I used to think all of this was normal...
