What 20 Ppm Means In Our Lives

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

An easy explanation of how 20ppm works in our lives.

 

Please remember:

 

 Some gluten-free food manufacturers currently use more sensitive testing (10ppm or 5 ppm).  I doubt they will change that to 20 ppm just because of this new law. And :Just because something tests at less than 20 ppm or 10 ppm, that does not mean it has 19 ppm or 9 ppm. It could reasonably have 2 ppm or 0.

 

 

To put it in perspective, you would have to eat about 18 slices of gluten-free bread in one day to reach the daily 10 mg level of gluten consumption,” says Cureton

 

http://www.massgeneral.org/children/assets/pdf/gluten-labeling-release-080213.pdf

 

 

 

I do not intend this to be a big discussion about how sensitive you are or an argument about the validity of this standard.  If you have valid research into this you want to argue, start a topic about this.  I only wanted to help explain the new standard in an easy to understand way for the majority of Celiacs.

If I ate 18 slices of gluten-free bread in one day, not only would I reach the daily ten mg. level, but I would also reach 300 pounds and bankruptcy! :lol:

(But I have to admit, Canyon Bakehouse bread is so good that could be a real temptation.)

And Canyon tests at less than 5 ppm so.... Maybe 72 pieces of bread?  :blink:

at 15 slices per loaf and $6 a loaf  = $28 a day for bread!  I guess if you ate 72 pieces of bread, you wouldn't be able to eat any more food....so you might save some money that way?  But don't come on here and complain about the D or C you got from eating all that bread!  :ph34r:

I admit, when I first found Canyon Bakehouse, I went through a loaf every two days! It was my "consolation snack", and not only did I eat the bread, but it was absolutely dripping with butter. I ate four slices for breakfast, then had a couple more for an afternoon snack, then I'd have another slice or two in the evening. When I could no longer fit into my "fat jeans", and when I stopped to realize how much money I was spending, I put a stop to it.

 

Now I buy a loaf maybe once a month. When it's gone, I just do without bread until I feel like buying more. I mostly just eat whole foods, but once in a while as a treat I do bread, or maybe ice cream. I even have a package of Udi's double chocolate muffins that has been sitting UNTOUCHED in my freezer for over a week! Adapting to a gluten-free diet has taught me that I DO have willpower! :)

OR that you split your pants and have to wear sweats now.

 

Great explanation for the Newbies, K. And a refresher course for the rest of us.

 

Thanks for sharing all the great info from the ICDS.  Got any more? :)

As long as we are doing the Canyon Bakehouse 12 step program,  I usually keep 5 loaves of it in the freezer....and I usually eat 2 slices per day.  The glutton in the household is my husband...who LOVES this bread.  We go through about 2 loaves per week and most of it isn't me.  However, if my supply gets down to a mere 1 loaf, I have to admit to a little panic....especially if it's wintah and snow is comin'!   :o

You know what happens when it snows...the bread aisle empties out so it's doubly hard for Celiacs......our bread isn't available everywhere so you have to be prepared.  I'm not getting stuck in a blizzard without Canyon Bakehouse!   ;)

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
