Generally speaking, its safe. I can't remember the name of the jug i've been using. I'll look and post in a bit.

I only say that because i saw someone once claiming that it was cc'd by soy or something. Of all the brands i've tried, i've never had an issue.

I buy a local honey at the grocery.   If you bought something from local farms, that should take care of if it is made in India.

I use rices lucky clover honey. It is raw and unfiltered. I buy a five lb jug for i think less then twenty dollars at sams club.

It has been tested as a "true" honey. Its explained on their website.

It has a better flavor than some others i've tried. I go through quite a bit of it.

I have had problems with all sorts of honeys but did well with Volcano Island honey.  It is very expensive though, so if you can find another one, that would be better.  They have also just changed ownership and I don't know what the new owners might change about the process.  The former owners had some descriptions on their site about what they do to not have to use some of the methods that are usually used that might be why I had problems. 

 

Even though this is the super sensitive section I will comment that I am extremely sensitive and honey is considered gluten free for typical celiacs.

I commented because she seemed to be less worried about debating if honey would have gluten in it and more worried it was junk from India that was pretending to be honey.

The mall has some honey:

India junk? explain please... :wacko:

 

From the article she posted

 

"Food Safety News decided to test honey sold in various outlets after its earlier investigation found U.S. groceries flooded with Indian honey banned in Europe as unsafe because of contamination with antibiotics, heavy metal and a total lack of pollen which prevented tracking its origin."

This whole thread has really grossed me out.  I will look at honey with a new perspective from now on. :huh:

 

Do you buy honey that has been so purified, that it's not even be considered "honey".  Or honey with all sorts  of junk in it....hive, bee parts, etc. ?  And banned imported "honey"?

 

Guess I'll stick to my local bee farmer from now on.

So then my honey should be good? http://www.riceshoney.com/

 

Looks local to me.  The article listed some brands that were problematic, if I remember.

 

I don't even think this really had anything to do with gluten.  Its sort fo the honey equivalent to meat red slime stuff. It doesn't contain gluten but its gross and not what you thought you were buying.

Kareng, my comment wasn't a reflection on you at all.  I wanted people who didn't notice that this was the super sensitive section to know that they don't have to worry about honey.  It is so easy to click on new topics and not notice that you are in the super sensitive section.

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
