I'm kind of new. I've been reading a great deal on this site.

I'm seeing that many have posted about Rice Dream not being gluten free.

My carton of organic Rice Dream rice milk and the web site both say that it IS gluten free.

I believe they've concluded that gluten free would be good for business.

Just thought I'd share.

Welcome to the boards.

Rice Dream uses a barley enzyme in their product. Because barley is not considered an allergan by the powers that be and the barley is in a small amount they can legally call this not gluten free item gluten free. Pacific makes a good rice milk and if you live in an area with a Wegmans they have recently come out with a truely gluten free rice milk also.

B Complex vitamins WEGMANS Brand got me the other day. I returned them, of course, but it was close.

The ones I have to stay on my toes about: "Mixed greens" in vitamins that end up including barley grass. How could they possibly avoid getting any seed or other gluten containing material in the vitamins when massed produced? I would not touch anything made with barley or wheat grass with a ten foot pole! Seriously why go where you don't need to and risk getting glutened!?!

This reminds me to finish that thought..B COMPLEX VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS AT WEGMANS says gluten-free, and technically they are allowed to sell it as such, but it does contain barley grass, use caution with all vitamins, even of they say gluten free!

I suppose this is a situation where I can say luckily I cannot handle grains. I live in an area where we have a walmart, martins and...... :huh:

hah

I will however look into finding a site that I can order one of your suggested rice milks. Orrrrr I'll try that recipe I found to make my own.

I appreciate the information!

I think Rice Dream is "tricky". Yes, it does say its got gluten right on the carton but still...its not somewhere you'd normally look. I think unless they've done their research beforehand a lot of people have probably been glutened by Rice Dream at some point. I was.

Huh? I'm confused now. I'm just been diagnosed & so have been reading lots of posts to learn more. Never heard of 'Rice Dream' before so googled it to see what it was. Their site goes on about how healthy & safe their products are & it also gives a list of what products are gluten free on this page:

http://www.tastethedream.com/health/glutenfree.php

Has something changed? Did they include gluten before but don't now? Or what? Not that I'm going out to buy it - I prefer to make my own foods but if Rice Dream contains gluten & they say it doesn't on their website, isn't that false advertising?

Oops, :huh: I posted my questions about Rice Dream after I read posts on the 1st page. But since I've read to the end, I understand now why they labelled it gluten-free. So how do we really know if something really is safe or not? Does it mean malt-containing products (if no gluten or wheat in them) can be labelled gluten-free then?

the one that gets me is the regular flavor of Doritos. All the other flavors are gluten free - but not the original nacho flavor. even "spicy nacho" is gluten-free. Doritos are my one pregnancy craving, so if my husband goes out to get some for me, i have to make sure to tell him several times "NOT the original nacho flavor." Also, i saw that Pringles have wheat in them?? or am i mistaken? i thought i read that the other day. thought that was weird.

Absolutely no reason I can think of why Soy Sauce should have wheat as the second ingredient (its not a big deal, I buy the wheat free stuff)...

Grrrrrrrrrrr......

I read that they use it to help it pour more freely. There's a type of soy sauce called tamari which should not have any wheat, although I've seen some that have barley.

The one that got me was Haribo gummibears and other candies. I wrote to the company and they said that all their products contain glucose syrup made from wheat and corn.

Tricky Gluten-y foods:

Imitation crab (it's in the stuff that binds it together) Must trust that restaurants use real when asking

Some Chicken (injected with chicken broth for flavor)

Beans (in Mexico and some Mexican restaurants, they use flour to thicken the beans)

cornbread

Root Beer (some brands)

au jus

Lindt chocolate and some others like Godiva

whiskey (except JDaniels)

bourbon

gin

some vodkas

wine coolers

some shredded cheese (anti-caking agent)

some dried fruit (anti-caking agent)

some vanilla extract (some people disagree, i think)

some pickles

some seasoned vegetables at restaurants

sauteed mushrooms at restaurants (some use soy sauce)

some makeup, shampoo, soap, etc.

lots of vegetarian fake-meat products

some people/restaurants keep a piece of bread in their sugar container to keep it from clumping

I'm not sure, but I thought anything cooked with Mesquite was a no-no.

btw

RUNNING RABBIT LICORICE and Candy Tree ORganic is Gluten Free

I have info. stating: "Most Haribo products ARE gluten free. The following products are NOT gluten-free:

Black licorice wheels, red licorice wheels, sour s'ghetti, fruity pasta, pico-balla, allsorts and pontefract cakes."

Any shiny chocolates with food glaze at Trader Joe's have gluten (chocolate covered nuts and dried fruits). I got way sick from them once and called the company. It isn't on the label. I asked an employee to find out more about it but he never did. The chocolate covered orange and raspberry sticks have no glaze and are fine.

Cadbury Easter eggs have gluten--so sad...

    • Hello and welcome I'd just echo CyclingLady - do you need to put yourself through this? There are lots of good reasons for pursuing a diagnosis but amongst the strongest are helping you to 'keep honest' on the diet or ensuring that your not denying yourselves a lot of foods for good reason. Neither of these apply to you and so I'd have to ask what you have to gain by putting yourself through it?  Oh and: Me too, but every so often I fall of the wagon into a gluten free cheesecake or similar Best of luck!
    • My own bugbear is that in dismissing the fad diet journalists will typically reference Celiac but will often say that only Celiac patients should be following the gluten free diet. Whatever the consensus medical opinion of NCGS, it's a fact that there are many people who are not diagnosed Celiac but who have been advised by their doctors to follow a gluten free diet. That distinction is typically too subtle for such articles and they therefore help to support the idea amongst the wider populace that if you're not celiac you can eat gluten and if you're avoiding it your either deluded, a chronic attention seeker or jumping on a bandwagon. A reductive and potentially harmful generalisation. 
    • Hello,  Celiac Disease and alcohol consumption cause malabsorption that can lead to vitamin deficiencies. Nutrition has a part to play in connective tissue disorders like arthritis, Sjorgren's, Ehlers-Danlos, and polychondritis.  Here's an article about EDS and nutritional therapy. http://www.chronicpainpartners.com/nutritional-therapeutic-strategy-for-ehlers-danlos-syndrome/  Vitamin D is really important in controlling inflammation.   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23830380 You might consider checking for vitamin deficiencies at your next doctor's appointment.   You might want to look into a low histamine diet and mast cell activation syndrome.  I found going on the Autoimmune Immune Paleo diet, a low histamine diet, and a low sulfite diet simultaneously helpful.   The low histamine diet doesn't allow anything fermented. If your reaction to the fermented cabbage is "ugh," it's your body telling you not to eat it.   Cabbage, fish oil, and wine are high in Sulfites.  Metformin is a sulfa drug.  Your body might be inflamed because of a Sulfites hypersensitivity that may occur with Celiac Disease.   These are things I found helpful.  It took several months to figure out what works for me.  I'm doing much better now.  Like CyclingLady, I "eat to my meter" and don't take medication.  I hope this helps us on our journey to wellness.
    • Well first things first, I always read your posts with interest, you have gone the extra mile for answers, put the intellectual work in and crucially kept a rational and grounded perspective throughout and if anyone deserves them you do.  Sadly of course I don't have any,  so I'll simply send my sincere best wishes across the Atlantic.  I really do hope you find your answer.  On this: I tested negative for celiac and my endoscopy didn't show villi blunting. I do however definitely react to gluten in all sorts of ways. So I'm in the nebulous NCGS group, a condition that most of the world seems uncertain even exists or if so questions its relation to gluten.  I wanted certainty and answers and I never really got them. I've come to accept that it's an imperfect world and this is still in medical terms an imperfectly understood area. I've had to park the question of whether I had celiac but it wasn't picked up (there were some flaws in the diagnostic process) or early onset celiac or NCGS or its really fodmaps and I'm working on a false correlation or it's NCIS, no, CSI New York, etc etc. In the end I was exhausted, sick of feeling ill and had proved to my own satisfaction that gluten was a problem and I decided to leave it at that. It's not ideal by any means, but, hey, whaddya gonna do?  There are things I know about my own condition that I can't necessarily demonstrate or have validated by a test. It is, by definition, anecdotal at best, but I'll offer it in any case. One of them would be the recovery on the gluten free diet. This was very much a matter of time. I did have some very quick responses, within a few days for instance for an improvement in brain fog, anxiety etc. Some of the weirder neuro symptoms seemed to take much longer and although the endoscopy was negative for villi damage I can't help thinking that malabsorbtion may be an explanation for the time some of these longer term issues took to resolve.  Weirdly some of those neuro symptoms, say the muscle twinges, that took a long time to resolve now seem to trigger occasionally I think in response to minute cross contamination issues. I have no idea what this means, maybe they require the least amount of gluten present to present so they were amongst the last to stop? I know just a few days ago I was noticing an errant muscle repeatedly twitching and I started thinking about the bbq I'd just risked using... None of which of course proves anything or gets you further down the road. I do think however that this: is a good idea and I'd encourage you to push that limit back from the end of summer to a date at least 6 months and perhaps longer away (I'm thinking 12). The gluten free diet is a pain in the arse but it's healthy (or it is if you make it so) and aside from a slight increase in expense it's increasingly straightforward to follow. Go gluten free, apply just the same rigour in pursuing the diet that you have in looking for answers. Do the food journal. Do the whole foods for 3 months, cross contamination procedure with pans, check toothpaste etc.  In short, proceed as if you'd had a positive celiac diagnosis and try to eliminate all doubts. For X many months, live as if gluten free isn't a choice, but a necessity.  It makes it easier believe it or not. Give the diet sufficient time and you will be running perhaps your last test by yourself, for me that was the most significant test of all.  Oh and on this: I learnt, at great personal cost in terms of the sheer misery I went through that my view of health professionals was juvenile and unhelpful. The unquestioning belief that as children we invest in doctors, nurses etc can translate into an over investment of trust to a level which would not be the case in any other comparable scenario. You go to them at your weakest moments, in search of validation, comfort, solutions etc. and if you have a bad experience the first impulse is to blame yourself or question your own experience. Well I'm way past that now. Just like any other walk of life there are good, bad and lot's of indifferent people working within. I've had some great experiences but I've also had some awful ones and indeed just a few days ago I had one so bad that for the first time in my life, I lodged a complaint. Please understand as a British person this is very unusual indeed  It was a horrendous meeting and I was treated in such an appalling way that if I related it here you may not believe me. A couple of years ago it would've destroyed me. Now I just shrugged it off, then realised that if I allowed that behaviour to pass unquestioned I'd be doing a disservice to the next person who had to suffer that kind of treatment. You've shown on here your an intelligent person with a fully justified and admirable engagement in looking for answers. If your doctors aren't picking up on that the fault lies with them. tldr **** them. Best wishes from the sunny UK  Matt  
    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
