Did I Have A Reaction To Strawberry Jelly Yesterday Evening?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I ate a bowl of gluten free cereal with gluten free peanut butter and this 100% fruit strawberry jelly mixed together. Within about 30-60 minutes of eating it I got 2 itchy bumps (hives?) on my right leg and I became super bloated. I also felt a little "out of it". And strangely enough the constant relentless hunger I've been experiencing the last week or so disappeared (temporarily I'm sure) after I ate that.

The jelly is this brand - http://www.fruitoftheland.com/beitnosugar.html

The only ingredients are strawberries, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and fruit pectin. It is not listed as gluten free. I've tried calling them, they never pick up.

I'm also pretty sure I have candida albicans. Yesterday I consumed a lot of sugar (albeit from good sources like fruit, raw honey, etc) so I'm thinking I maybe overloaded my system with sugar and that's what caused this reaction?

Have any gluten eaters used the jelly or pnut butter? You can get CC'd from crumbs from gluten eaters 'double dipping'. I have never seen a jelly that wasn't gluten free but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Also did the gluten-free cereal you ate have oats? There are some of us, myself included that do not tolerate oats in any form even certified gluten-free.

I agree with Raven also and i'll throw this in. I react to all gluten free cereals. You may have had a reaction to the cereal. Just a thought.
