Udi's gluten-free Bagels And Severe Nausea?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the same bagels, but I aint had a problem with them. Like alot of others have said, I recommend watchin what you eat, even keepin a food diary, and seein if it could be somethin else you are reactin to (ie soy). Another thin to look out for is if you are preparin your bagels with contaminated equipment (IE knives/ cuttin boards/ plates/ toasters). And lastly could they have cc'd in some way from other foods?


Gluten Free since Oct. 1, 2010
Fish/Seafood Free since 1997
Chocolate Free (with a few taste tests to see if I'm just crazy) since 2001.
Officially Dairy free 8/5/2013 (mostly dairy free before that, but I like my cheese and things) (dx'd officially with lactose intolerance, suspect casein too though)
Esophagitis dx'd 8/5/2013 thus doing a diet devoid of acidic foods and stuff

I am on the Bernstein diet here in Canada and they do not authorize many gluten-free productions, udi products are on the list but frankly there is something in their products that give me intense abdominal pain. I would equate the pain and location to that of eating a gluten based food. I have not have any luck with any of the Udi products, and I assume it is something they add to them in commonality that I have a reaction too. I have found that I am far better only eating whole foods and making natural gluten-free breads, anything processed is open to contamination or introduction of machinable ingredients. And frankly, if I was making products I would entertain the instruction of items which improves the machining of those products. I have to do that when manufacturing plastics and Steel to better produce competitive products so why not foods. And thus why are have issues with processed foods in the first place.

When I was first diagnosed, I thought I was getting glutened.  Turns out that I was reacting to xanthan gum found many gluten-free products.  It did not bother my gluten-free hubby but he had been gluten-free for over a decade and no longer had a damaged gut.  I switched to guar gum in my baking products.  For newbies I think a whole foods based diet is best to speed healing.

Even us more sensitive celiacs vary in our response to trace gluten. My son and I are both sensitive to low levels of gluten, but he is much more sensitive than I am. Even if lots of sensitives can eat it, that doesn't mean that all sensitives can. Bottom line is don't eat it if it makes you sick. Others besides you react to Udi's. Even dedicated facilities cannot make sure that their grains come from dedicated farms. There are very few farms that use dedicated harvesting equipments. Even at that, a gluten free grain farmer I am familiar with doesn't let trucks drive through his place when it is muddy because gluten grains can get stuck in the tires and contaminated things that way. He still sorts and washes grain before he feeds it to his extremely sensitive daughter.

 

We just are not all in the same boat when it comes to cc.

 

I guess we must be a special snowflakes too. ;)

This is an old thread- I hope that the OP found some other brand of bagel to eat.

I agree with this poster in that just because something says that it is gluten free doesn't mean that it is safe for everyone to eat. It may not be the gluten but other ingredients that are being reacted to. Just because you can eat the food without a reaction doesn't mean that others can. Even though Udi's is a well established gluten free brand, if I react negatively to their products, it's probably not a safe company for me. Some people have noted reactions to gluten free Chex cereal on this website. I can eat those without a problem. Pay attention to how your body reacts to the food, then you'll know if it is safe for you to consume.
