Amy's Was Okay, Got Diarrhea, Thought Nothing Of It. Then This.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Amy's was okay and has been a pretty staple frozen food provider for a while for me, for the most part she still is.

Here is a list of products sold by her that have over hundreds consumed and no gluten reaction to date

  • Sante Fe Bowl
  • Cheese Enchilada
  • Bistro Burger

And recently, I have had diahrrea not once but 3 times from Gluten Free Non Dairy Mac N Cheese. I thought, hmm it must be an ingredient right?

Well that wasn't even the worst, recently I tried the Gluten Free Non Dairy Burrito's, instantly I became stupid, you know celiac stupid.

Then I came down with flu like symptoms, stomach pains, etc. And that was the only thing I aten in an entire 12 hour period. It was terrible, I felt like I ate literally nothing at all and it was sitting there in my stomach like a rock.

I don't know what is going on with Amy's products but they seriously are inconsistent and need to be re-examined and re-thought as being gluten free.

I also would like to help everybody out by saying I have reacted to Cheeto's, Lay's Salt n Vinegar, and Reeses Pieces.

Soy free, MSG free, mostly Dairy free. Endoscopy shows blunted Villi which dr states as gluten sensitivity, so goin back to being gluten free

I agree with txplowgirl. A lot of us have issues with Amy's products. I can't eat anything made my Lays except Stax. I eat Kettle Brand chips and Stax. I have had problems with Hershey's too. These foods are gluten free, I just think that they have cross contamination issues. Some of us are more sensitive than others.

You spoke like you where me, I can't eat a single piece of Hershey's and Lay's gives me problems.

I have the same issue! Almost time I eat Amy’s frozen meals! Especially the Veggie Loaf, the Chinese Noodles, the Pad Thai, and any Mac & Cheese except the boxed (non-frozen) kind. I was starting to think it was some other ingredient because the ones I eat all say they are gluten-free. But if it isn’t gluten, what could it be??

While I don't have any bad reactions to Amy's products, But I do have severe reactions to Pamela's products.  While I love her many wonderful foods, the terrible diarrhea and stomach pains make it so not worth it for me.  I'm doing much better on low sugar and low carbs while not completely Keto. Seems like Celiac disease reactions affect each individual differently, and it's still a great mystery even though we all avoid gluten like the plague.

Because these are processed foods, you could be reacting to any ingredient.  For example, I am a celiac who despite having healed, still has intolerances to garlic and Xanthan Gum.

You have that right!  Simply going gluten free may not be enough to feel well.  So many people have intolerances to other foods that may or may not resolve with healing.  There is no “one-size-fits-all” gluten free diet.

I'm not sure the reactions to Amy's are related to gluten. I have searched online to find if others have a reaction because I have been in denial that it is Amy's soups upsetting my stomach, so glad to find this page. My mind says these are all good ingredients, so why stomach rumbles, etc? I don't have ANY eating intolerance, I can eat any foods any time of the day or night and have no digestion problems, but Amy's soups especially the Spanish one, but some others too are so not right. I've bought loads of her soups in the pandemic and still have around 12 tins in the cupboard. They may have to go to the food bank. :( Maybe someone with iron constitution can handle this. I thought I did have an iron constitution - but something's wrong here....
