Is Canned Fruit With Juice A Risk?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My apologies if this topic has been covered. I scanned the recent threads and didn't see it discussed.

After dealing with persistent Dermatitis Herpetiformis that has lasted three years despite a very strict diet, I became suspicious of one element of my diet, economy 'canned fruit with juice', which I was eating quite a bit of. Coincidentally or not, when I eliminated the 'canned fruit with juice' my DH began a rapid improvement to the extent it has almost disappeared. Nothing else in my diet has changed so far as I know.

My hypothesis is that 'juice' actually comes from offshore industrial sources and could quite easily be contaminated with poorly refined wheat-origin industrial sugars, that harbour gluten. This would be mislabelling, but wouldn't surprise me.

This is quite a stretch, I know. But it is the only theory that seems to fit. Or it could be a coincidence.

I too, have DH.

It took me a year and half to heal.

When I was researching the way to limit iodine, I read about avoiding canned goods.

I wasn't sure if it was because of the salt used in canned goods or something about the canning process itself, but I noticed my DH reacted to canned goods so I dropped all of them.

Now I only use tomato paste that is canned but only if I can't find it in a tube.

I'll see if I can google up where I read about this.

But it got scarier reading about the chemicals they coat cans with in the first place so I dropped all cans.

Have you limited iodine?

If you haven't you might try thyca.com.

As a matter of fact that might be where I read about canned goods and the need to avoid them on low iodine diet.

I thought about the iodine, but I don't have DH and I didn't want to get it wrong. Thank you for posting that. :)
