I have pretty much given up eating out and make my own foods. I have a question out of curiosity. When you buy things like marinara sauce, or the like, do you only buy things that are labeled gluten-free? when checking the label, if there doesn't appear to be any offending ingredients, would you buy it? Spaghetti sauce was on sale at my store, buy one get one free, and the ingredients looked fine, but it didn't say gluten-free on the label.

 

Just wondering what others do. Thanks.

thanks Karen. I guess what started confusing me was the stuff that is labeled with info like "made in a facility that also processed wheat" and other labeling like that.

 

my husband saw Muellers pasta gluten-free  and wanted to get it for me. when I read the label it says made in a facility...... so I didn't get it. he said just try it and see if you get sick. he means well.

 

so you go strictly by ingredients. thanks

I make everything from scratch with fresh ingredients. I am super sensitive though.

Depends on how sensative you are. For some people they are okay with shared facilities, for others they are not.

I made marinara with canned tomatoes and spices. :)
But no, I do not look for gluten-free on the label.  I simply read the ingredient list very carefully.

Shared facility, maybe , maybe not.  Lots of things are made in a "shared facility" and you would never know.  They don't have to tell you.  Shared machines makes me think twice.  For me, it depends on what the item is.  Something floury, like pasta, I might not take a chance on.  Seems like it would be harder to clean the machines than a pasta sauce machine.

For me no shared facility labeling and has to be labeled gluten free. I don't go by just the ingredients for any items I don't already know is safe.

I look at shared facilities this way: You mentioned a husband. Does he have any regular bread in the kitchen? If so, you have shared facilities. Do you use the same pans to cook in? If so, you have shared equipment. I am not a super-sensitive, so I don't worry about shared facilities, but I do consider how hard a specific substance would be to clean off a machine in the case of shared equipment.

mbrookes, my kitchen is gluten free, no shared equipment here. if husband wants gluten, he goes out and gets it. my family is great about that.

    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
