Gluten In Rice Milk? Other Problems

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to use Rice Dream Rice Drink instead of cow's milk or soy milk wirh rice chex in the morning, or with Carnation instant breakfast at dinner (which I now know to stay away from). When I do I have problems in AM, then am ok, then problems pm, then ok.

Hidden on the back of the box (other flavors list this under ingredients so I haven't tried them) are the words "contains gluten from barley protein at less than 0.002%." Is that enough to bother?

My ELab results were "thumbs down" for gluten, dairy, egg, and yeast. I switched to rice drink rather than soy milk because I thought that bothered me. Fiber seems to bother me, and for some reason sugar really bothers. I can have Lifestream/Nature's Path Buckwheat Wildberry Toaster waffles (gluten, dairy, yeast, and egg free)(taste okay) with margarine and am ok. With syrup I have problems. Jello is bad. Jelly beans bad. Honey ham seems to bother. Etc.

If anyone has problems with soy products or sweets your comments would be appreciated. Rice Chex lists sugar as #2 ingredient even though they are not sweet.

re: eggs

Am going to try cornbread again, I've been shying away from corn products while I sort other things out. Not sure whether to use an egg or not. One piece of cornbread would be 1/9 of an egg, about the same as a couple Gluten Free Pantry chocolate chip cookies (not bad) which didn't seem to bother. Try it and see?

I guess this post is about as confused as I am. Losing eggs, yeast, and dairy really made things tough - no more bread or rolls. If I can save corn it will be a big plus.

If you are on a low budget I plan to post a good leftover chicken over rice recipe in the food forum tomorrow. One cup of diced chicken is enough for me and mom for dinner.

Talk to you folks later.

You betcha that's enough to bother! That is all it takes to cause a reaction in me. I have had to quit eating all processed cereals because even that little bit does me in. Instead of an egg, try 1 Tbsp of ground flax mixed with 3 Tbsp of water, set aside to thicken for a minute. I use it in my pancakes, and it works just great! Also, the rice chex I used to eat listed malt flavoring, which is a barley product, in the ingredients.

Hi Phil,

I am allergic to soy, so I don't use soy milk anymore for myself. At the doctor insistance I bought some for my kids. The doctor did warn me that they might be soy intolerant as well as gluten and dairy. One out of three of my kids gets a bad stomachache after drinking the soy milk. By the third day he was rolling on the floor in pain and couldn't go to school. It wore him out and he ended up taking a three hour nap! For a 7 year old this is a big deal! ;) So no more soy milk for him. He does okay on smaller amounts of soy. Like the soy lecithin and soybean oil in products and the soy flour in the gluten-free pretzels. But the soy milk was just too much for him.

You should try to find a rice milk that does not use barley in the processing. Rice Dream is a no-no for us, but I have used Pacific brand. We prefer Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It tastes great and we use the plain flavored for our cereal and the chocolate for drinking. I recommend that you skip the vanilla flavored it just doesn't taste right. I do hope you feel better.

There are lots of substitutes for eggs when cooking. I would suggest trying those before using eggs. At least for a while and let your self heal. You may someday be able to tolerate eggs and yeast again. There are some other "raising agents" that can be used instead of yeast also. Here is a good

article on yeast free baking .

God bless,

Mariann

    • The distillation process does prevent the gluten protein from passing through the filtration process.  However for people who are gluten intolerant like I am, the cross contamination that occurs prior to distillation is still present after distillation.  Therefore while the protein molecule isn't present, the distilled liquid is cross contaminated by containing the gluten protein molecule prior to the distillation process.  I get very ill from any distilled alcohol that contained gluten prior to be being distilled.  For those of you that are gluten intolerant, please be exceptionally careful. Extracts are another thing to stay away from for the same reason.  We have to make our own.  It's a long process but worth not getting sick.
    • I just do a variety of gluten free foods.  Many because someone doesn't like cheese on his potatoes or someone won't eat something else.   I figure they won't starve if all they like is the turkey and the canned cranberry or the sweet potatoes and the apple sauce.  
    • Did the doctor diagnose you with anything?  It sounds like diverticulitis.  Usually treated with 10 days of antibiotics.  Infection can improve, but if it isn't 100% cleared, it can flare up again.  I just had a flare up that didn't improve after 10 days on meds.  Ended up in the hospital for 5 days of IV  antibiotics.  This condition is not related to Celiac.  Let your doctor know you are still feeling pain.  In the meantime, take it easy (eat low fiber) for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.  Call doctor if you develop sharp pain, fever, or blood in your stool.  
    • People who do not have celiac disease, but who have celiac-like symptoms that improve on a gluten-free diet are prime candidates for a condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Researchers don't know much about the condition. There are no biomarkers, so they can't just do a blood test. People with this condition often experience celiac-like symptoms. Many of people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity see their symptoms improve on a gluten-free diet. However, these people may also have puzzling sensitivities to other foods that just don't seem to add up. Interestingly, foods with gluten often contain fructans, a type of fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs). Fructan is one such compound. Could fructan be the culprit?

    • Well timed Pep talk Admin. I am trying to accommodate all my intolerances this year to make dinner. Last year  I will admit I was so ill, I didn't bother doing a holiday dinner. My spouse (bless him) handled creating a small safe meal in 2016 as I sulked in the corner miserable as T-Day was my favorite holiday. I was still eating blender foods back in Nov 2016 post gluten challenge, so I sulked, pitied myself, and felt very far from holiday spirit and quite honest was not very thankful despite some long overdue medical clarity.  Ahh so here we are 2017,  I can have potato's again, thank goodness my daughter wants garlic mash.  They are back on the menu! Now I just have to try to convert my pumpkin ice cream pie to coconut milk style ice cream vs cow milk ice cream and master gluten-free crusts. Fingers crossed. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and if you are in the Celiac newly diagnosed pit the sun will rise again -stay with us.
