Peanut Butter

Can we have regular peanut butter OR do we need to buy gluten free peanut butter, if there is such a thing? I seem to be okay with JIF but everyone at work, no one with celiac disease, say's "you can eat peanut butter"? So now I'm asking you.

Jif is gluten-free, and so is skippy. Yes, you can eat normal peanut butter. I don't think I've ever seen a peanut butter with gluten, actually, but always read labels. Don't share pb containers with anyone else, because those containers get contaminated with bread crumbs.

I love peanut butter and eat it everyday. I use Jif creamy, and have never reacted to it. Thank goodness because with everything I had to give up I don't think I could my peanut butter :o

You know, sometimes when I'm reading the ingredients to food, I then decide that it is gluten-free, but I'm still not eating it!!! ;) Pb was one of those items, so I ended up using natural peanut butter because it's just salt and peanuts. Actually, I usually use almond butter because of my mold allergy. I mark the top of my jar with a green "g. f." so that everyone knows not to put a contaminated knife in it.

I've given up a lot of foods--but I have to say that one of the hardest was peanut butter! I have just ordered a jar of Maranatha Raw Almond Butter (no stores around here have it) and hope that it will fill the peanut butter void :P I gotta have something to put on my apple slices...

Reese's is the best peanut butter I've ever had. They have it at Walmart and it is gluten-free

In the organic section of my Giant Eagle they have stuff made by "The Peanut Butter Company" (I'm pretty sure that's it.) They have Cinnamon Rasin and White Chocolate, I know you can order other flavors too. Both are divine and gluten and casein free. I eat them right out of the jar.

Hey there! I love the Marantha raw almond butter...and eat it all the time. I just found WALNUT BUTTER.

Oh man, is it ever good. It's $9/jar, and not a big jar like regular peanut butter - half of that. Wow. I actually use PB on my apples because the WB is too expensive and tastes too good - that I eat out of the spoon, with or without some yummy jam on the swpoon.

You don't eat grains, right? Me too and it's tough to figure it all out. BUT, after 4-1/2 days, I already feel better. I'm still bloated, but it doens't hurt anymore. AND I don't feel as though I need naps now...I really like that. Anyway, try the walnut butter next time you win big at the casino. (If you need a brand name, I'll PM you or something - it's at home.

Hi Bully4You--thanks for the tip on the walnut butter, it sounds good. :) I love walnuts--probably moreso than almonds! Yes, I'm grain free. I do feel better this way. I have tried to incorporate rice and corn a few times, but the GI symptoms come right back. I'm used to eating this way now, so it's not a big deal. ;)

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
