Damn it! Gi doctor told me to start using beano, so I bought some today and popped them without checking the label. Freaking wheat starch! My stomach is so bloated now...it looks like I swallowed a bowling ball :(

Sorry that happened. I read on here a long time ago beano had gluten but I never use it anyway so I didn't worry about it. Seems so silly to put wheat starch in something supposed to combat gas and bloating. I hope your reaction passes soon. Darn it. <_<

Thank you. Luckily I saw my acupuncturist last night and she gave me some herbs to brew as a tea. They taste like dirt but the swelling has gone down by 50%. Another day and hopefully I will no longer look like I'm pregnant. :P

It's easier to just rinse canned beans well, or soak dried ones in boiled water, then drain them and recook, drain again, to get rid of the starch, than to attempt to make a supplement work.

Vitamin Shoppe sells a "Digestive Bean Enzyme" that is gluten-free.
