Help, My Daughter Was Glutened

Recommended Posts

So the tootsie website claims that Junior Mints are gluten-free but my daughter has gotten gluten 2 days in a row and I am almost 100% sure it was from junior mints. Is this possible?


Mommy to 2 Divas in Training

~6 yr old daughter positive Celiac blood test December 2010 (at age 4)~

~Positive Biopsy January 10, 2011~

~Gluten Free since January 11, 2011~

We've never had a problem with Junior Mints.

For whatever reason, if the mints are a problem, then ditch the mints. Certainly take it out of the equation and see if her symptoms clear up. It may be something else in the mint ... it may be something else that she has eaten and the mints looked like the most likely candidate...it may be that she is still healing and the mint is too hard on her system.
