  1. I take these for iron as I just found out I'm anemic. http://www.naturesbounty.com/product/001603%C2'> (Gentle Iron 28mg by Nature's Bounty) I also found these: www.proferrin.com I have had major issues with iron supplements in the past (bad tummy ache, nausea, etc.) but I have had zero issues with the two mentioned above. I have also started taking the gummy vitamins (VitaFushion). For whatever reason, I didn't think to start vitamin supplements after going gluten-free in early 2009. Oops... Anyway, I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and I've found those two iron supplements to work well for me, without any gluten-like reactions or side effects normally associated with iron.
  2. I had the same awful experience with Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. I am very sensitive to gluten, so if there's gluten in a product my body will definitely let me know (in the worst possible ways, as you all can imagine! ) Within a few hours of eating it last night I had gas, horrible cramps, diarrhea, nausea and that familair sensation only gluten causes that feels like my entire digestive system was scalded with hot water. I do not have other food allergies and I had not eaten anything else out of the ordinary that day. Like the original poster said, I wish I would have seen this thread prior to having to endure last night and this morning. I am so thankful that this message board is here, and I just wanted to share my experience so that other people know to definitely be wary of Breyer's Ice Cream (which makes me sad, but I'd rather be sad than sick! )
