Can't Tolerate Non-Self Baked Goods!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it, but whenever I eat some "gluten-free" baked goods made by someone other than myself, I get sick.

I've tried Orgran's gluten free biscuits (ready made), muffin mix (Self made, but using their flour mix), "home industry"-type gluten free biscuits (Very simple ingredients, rice flour only), Nature's Source (South African local company) gluten free rusks, local brand gluten-free bread etc etc.

In every case, usually every 2nd biscuit/slice or so I'll get severe symptoms shortly afterward. It's not very consistent, sometimes I can "get away" with it.

Biscuits/pizza bases made by myself using a trusted flour mix (Rice, corn, tapioca flour, xantham gum, home-made baking powder) is always fine.

Do you think these items are somehow contaminated with gluten, or am I just reacting to the unusual flours that they often add? I'm just so frustrated that I can never buy a pack of biscuits and just chow down. Baking isn't that bad, but it's usually an hour out of my day that I could've just bought something.

/rant over, guess I should focus on the positives!

I experience the same thing. I have had to accept spending a lot of time preparing food. Sometimes I just don't want to do it. Then I get so hungry I do it anyway, but then I have to wait quite awhile until it is ready. Buying ready made would be nice, but I'd be happy to have someone else be able to prepare stuff. At least my son helps a bit. I think that it is cc.

You might want to see if there is any ingredient that you don't use at home that the items have in common. It could be CC but it could also be that they use something you don't that your body doesn't like.

I have been real hit and miss at times with things that I didn't make myself. Some things are okay and some are not.

You could be reacting to cross contamination from something other than gluten, such as soy, in some products. Or to the "vegetable gum" or the guar gum or xanthan gums.

I looked at a bunch of the Organ pre made item ingredients, and they are mostly based on corn(maize) starch and brown rice flour, pea flour, some have tapioca. Would love to know what is in the "vegetable oil" that's listed. Also, I saw psyllium fiber in some of them, I've tried that once in a bread and it sort of sat like a rock in my stomach. Calcium carbonate also gives some people a bloated feeling. They are using rice syrup and I would also like to know if this has been made with barley based enzymes then processed to be technically gluten free (we all know how that goes.... :angry: ) or was it something else.
