David Sunflower Kernals Vs. gluten-free Honey Nut Chex

Recommended Posts

I made the mistake of trying two new things within 30 minutes of each other. I should have known better: Honey Nut Chex with 'Gluten Free' on the label; and David Sunflower Kernals (already shelled)- a ConAgra product with only oil and salt.

Two hours later I'm feeling glutened, which is the typical pattern, but I'm not sure which product to be leery of since I had them too close to each other. In either case I'm thinking it's CC, since neither had gluten-containing ingredients.

I don't have any other intolerances besides MSG - and this is not an MSG reaction.

Anyone react to either of the above products?

I can't eat the gluten-free chex. Others on here can't either, and they say GLUTEN FREE all over the boxes, but.......notsomuch.

If I eat chex I get very tired within 20 minutes. One of my glutened symptoms.You are not alone.


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

I'm new to the gluten free diet, but I am thinking it might be cross contamination. I bought "gluten free" cookies the other day and did not read the labeling too well and found out later that the product may have been processed with wheat. I was annoyed when I read this and was mad at myself for not knowing better.

Companies should not be labeling their products "gluten free" if there is even the slightest chance there could be cross contamination.

If there had been no label saying "gluten free" then I probably would of double check more carefully I guess.

I find that for some reason the Honey Nut Chex don't agree with my stomach so well. I really don't think it's gluten though. For one, aren't the gluten-free chex products made in a gluten-free facility?

And two, it's been a consistant minor thing the few times I've eaten it. My wife eats it all the time, so we always have boxes of it, ie. I've tried it over a long period of time. If it was cross contamination, it wouldn't be a constant. That's the nature of cross contamination. It's either some, or more, or less, or none. But it can't be the same all the time.

I'm wondering if some of these reactions are to non-gluten intolerances. Perhaps to some of the other ingredients, or simply to highly refined products such as these.

I've tried all the gluten-free chex varieties, but mostly stick to the Corn Chex. Before they made it (corn chex) gluten-free, I ate Rice Chex for years. Every day with fresh blueberries and a little Truvia.

Are you sure you don't have a problem with dairy? Have you tried drinking straight milk to see what the results are? Often people try the gluten free cereals and have a gluten-like reaction that actually turns out to be a dairy reaction. You can develop this at anytime, but many people notice it after going gluten free.
