Kirkland Walnuts From Costco

Recommended Posts

The package does say these come from a plant that shares lines with wheat products, but I thought I'd give them a try...I seem to get abdominal cramps after eating them though...wondering if anyone else had ever had an issue with them. I'm new to gluten-free, so don't really know yet what a typical gluten reaction is for me, and haven't been diagnosed yet because I've been feeling quite a bit better since starting the diet and don't really want to go back to gluten just to get a diagnosis! My abdominal cramps haven't completely gone away, but are off and on, and the past couple times i've had these walnuts, I've noticed the cramping gets worse.

I've been chomping on those Kirkland walnuts happily for the past few weeks for what it's worth. Great price, huh?

Try soaking them overnight with a little salt in the water to get rid of the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors and make them more digestible. Heck, maybe I washed any gluten off mine with the soaking. :lol:

Too many walnuts have always given me stomach cramps, even if I'm picking them off the tree.

Leap, and the net will appear.
