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. ;)

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
