Who knew about Tropicana juice?!  I had NO IDEA..but it certainly clears up a few bacon/egg breakfasts out that ended in disaster! 

Thank you so much, this one in particular really makes a difference to me.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The Pure Premium with no additives IS gluten free. Everything else is not. So at least Tropicana does have at least 1 thing we can have.

The only juice of theirs that is gluten free is the Pure Premium with no additives.

Tropicana told me that any juice marked with the number 48 on the top is gluten free. I use the Essentials with 1/2 the sugar and calories and it works for me.The number 48 indicates that it is made in a gluten free facility.

They told me if they had 3 certain plant numbers on the top and were with no additives then they were gluten free.

The lady told me anything with natural flavors and other additives should not be considered safe for me. Now, it's possible you were told other things but that is not what I was told. It seems like some of these companies say different things so that really makes me doubt their products.

Is the kind you drink a new line or something? They just told me that plant number with no additives indicated gluten free(Last time I talked to them was like 2 months ago)

Another product to mention is the one I made a mistake with:

Gas-X Chewable Tablets are NOT gluten free!!! I was eating them like candy for my gas before I found out they weren't safe......

Target brand Metamucil sugar free, not gluten-free. But :) For an inexpensive lipstick...wet and wild is gluten-free. I'm not sure yet about their other products, still investigating.

Paul Newman has a line of wheat free cookies, NOT gluten-free. <_< Just because it says wheat free does not mean it's gluten-free.

Also...For those celiacs who are still experiencing stomach pain and digestive problems, please be careful with orange juice even if it is gluten-free. The acid in it is very caustic to a healing intestine. Years ago (in the dark depths of celiac disease without a diagnosis) I was trying to be "healthy" and started drinking a glass of orange juice every day (did this for about 2 years). Tropicana pure premium! During that time I became the sickest I have ever been. All symptoms the worst ever. Thyroid problems at the lowest. 25 pound weight gain even though I didn't eat anything and was constantly throwing up and having chronic dh. <_<:( Someone suggested giving up the OJ. I did, and I felt better within days. No I'm not allergic to citris. :)

Speaking of animals and their food...we have horses. It didn't occure to me that wheat and oats were in thier food until one day I was feeding carrots and got their slobber on me. It was right after feeding them that I noticed some of the feed stuck to my hand in all the slobber. :P Hmmmm...wheat seeds! <_<

I guess we have to be careful everywhere.

Wow!!!,

Thanks for all the great info.

You would think that the marketing dept. of these companies would get wise and make ALL their products gluten-free.

This must be a substantial loss of money to their companies.

Perhaps in time they will become the wiser.

Hi. This is all pretty new to me. I had my first obvious gluten reaction beginning of January - bowel symptoms, severe fatigue and weakness, shooting pains, weight loss, constipation, etc.

I got better after going gluten-free, but I've gotten sick a couple times after that. Plus, I have small lingering symptoms that have come back.

I have suspected my lotion this past week, but I was so busy to look into it until now... One of you guys mentioned it - St. Ives Collagen Elastin lotion. So I guess I'm throwing it out.

You know how it is - when you're cooking, sometimes you lick a finger, etc. I'm sure it gets on my food sometimes when I'm preparing it, especially when I cook right after a shower. I also use cast iron pans, and I rub oil on them after washing them - using my hands, of course. I don't have DH. But with this lotion on my face and hands, I'm sure I've ingested some of it.

It'll be interesting to see if my lingering symptoms clear up after I get rid of this lotion.

You guys might like to look into triclosan too. Do an Internet search on it. It's in antibacterial soap, among other things, and it is shown to cause bad problems with the endocrine system. I imagine some of you folks who have thyroid and/or adrenal issues may especially want to look into this.

Mary, did you used to cook gluten foods in your cast iron? That can also be a source of gluten contamination.

Thanks for asking. No - I actually got the cast iron pans because I read somewhere that some of the non-stick coating in pans has gluten in it. And you know how it is when you use those pans a little while - traces of the non-stick coating come off in the food. So I got the cast iron after I went gluten-free.

Thanks!

Mary
