Hi!  Does any other super sensitive have a safe brand of brown sugar?  I am afraid to try some organic brands, because it doesn't say anything about whether it's processed in a facility with wheat, etc.  I have Simple Truth and Earthfare brand in my pantry that my family uses.  I am trying to make some applesauce that I can eat too:)

I am extremely sensitive and I haven't found a brand of processed sugar that I can tolerate.  I tried about a half dozen before I gave up.  I grow sugar beets and can eat them just fine.  I also had a brand of honey that I was able to tolerate.  I make my applesauce without added sweetener and it's very good.  I use golden delicious apples because they are one of the sweetest.  I don't think that my problems come from sugar being processed in a facility that processes wheat.  I don't think that sugar would be processed with wheat.  I think that it has something to do with the purification process, but that's just speculation.  I found that after not adding sugar to things, I got used to that taste and didn't really need the added sugar anymore.

i use whatever's on sale :) - you know, read the labels...  the only reason i switched (pre gluten-free pantry to gluten-free pantry) was because people (myself included) cc'd it by using the same spoon when baking with wheat flour.  i don't worry much about sugar being processed with wheat.

Hi.

I've used "sugar in the raw" for many years with no problems.

    • @cyclinglady thanks for checking in  Restricted diet didn't do much. Still had some VA last time they checked. Heath still otherwise fine, so RCD remains unlikely. My sxs kick in lockstep with life stress, so that kind of points to some general IBS stuff on top of celiac disease. Very doubtful I'm getting any gluten in, but fingers crossed my system is just a little hyper-vigilant, as I ponder on this thread.
    • I have always noticed that the table wine in Europe is pretty damn good!  I am a wine lover and so is my husband but he does like his Green's beer.
    • The reason they set the limit at 20ppms is that through scientific study, they have proven that the vast majority of people with Celiac Disease do not have an autoimmune reaction to amounts below that......it is a safe limit for most.  Also, just because that limit is set at 20ppms, does not mean that gluten-free products contain that amount of gluten.  Testing for lower levels becomes more expensive with each increment down closer to 0-5ppms, which translates into higher priced products. Unless you eat a lot of processed gluten-free food, which can have a cumulative affect for some, most people do well with the 20ppm limit.   
    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval.  Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers.  Best of luck!
