What is making me sick? Is sour cream gluten-free? I can not get into the web page for foster farms and the label says modified food starch. Could this be the culprit? I have been eating homemade guacamole. This is frustrating!

I couldn't find Foster Farms Sour Cream on any of my gluten-free lists, but that does not mean it is a problem. You would probably have to call the company, if you can't get through on their website. The number should be on the package.

Could you be having a problem with dairy, in general. It can cause some pretty bad reactions to people who are intolerant of it. For me the reaction is a horribly painful stomachache, gas, cramping, diarrhea, and extreme urgency with BM's. It feels different for me than a gluten accident, and I do not get the fatigue I get with gluten, or the DH rash.

God bless,

Mariann

I went to the Foster Farms Website, and it was a bit confusing. I did eventually find the Customer Service information though. for anyone who wants to get a hold of them and find out the gluten-free status of their products this info might be helpful.

Foster Farms Dairy

cs@fosterdairyfarms.com

Customer Hotline 1-800-588-2334

Consumer Services 1-800-273-2226

No point in me checking, we can't have any dairy products... <_<

God bless,

Mariann

Thanks Mariann. I did email them and I will post their response. I could be lactose intolerant. Hum, can't the doctor test me for this? My intestines are still really sensitive and I did have some home made ice cream as well. I do know that eggs make me ill. Back to chicken and rice again.

My gut feels like something is fermenting in there, with cramps and steatorrhea (sorry to be so gross), weight loss. It is an obvious reaction to something, just what? Does this sound like a problem with lactose?

One little bit of gluten can make you feel ill for quite a long time. My son-in-law made the artichoke dip for Sunday and rather than use the ingredients my daughter had laid out for him (like Hellman's mayo) he decided to use the Kraft light that was already opened. Well, that's not safe for us (their regular is tho') and I still feel awful! Burping, expelling gas, heatburn, stomach pains. It's been waking me up at night and just now at work they heard me clear across the hall! I never know when it's coming and it just happens! I expect by the weekend it may stop but in the meantime I feel rotten! So, it may have been your sour cream (I use Daisy, it's pure) or something else that got slipped to you. It's hard to avoid everything! I have to eat out twice at lunch this week and am worried sick about that! So, hang in there! It will get better.

I was just in the store and the Kraft Lite mayo looks safe for us. Kraft says it will clearly list gluten and there was no wheat or barley anywhere in sight. HOWEVER, if the jar was already open somebody might have already contaminated it making a sandwich.

He also added 2 types of cheese, artichokes and sour cream. He used Daisy Sour Cream so that's okay. All the lists I have say Kraft Mayo- regular only is gluten free but you have a great point about cross contamination! I bet there were tons of bread crumbs in there. I have never personally read the label of any Kraft Mayo as I'm a Hellman's fan. Who knows? It's so complicated. I still can't find a gluten free Chili Sauce and I have so many good recipes that calls for it. Guess I could substitute Heinz Kicked Up Catsup. Anyhow, thanks again about reminding me of cross contamination. We're going to lunch there in a few weeks so I will definitely bring that up!

Well Foster farms emailed me and said their sour cream is gluten free. Hum, maybe I need to cut out dairy for awhile anyway.

I have found I need my own butter stick, I went to use some and there were bread crumbs on it. Oh well, if I go dairy free and get some fake butter stuff no one in the house will touch it anyway!

Speaking of fake butter stuff, Smartbeat is gluten free. I like their squeeze stuff.It's only 5 calories! Of course as I don't eat bread, I just use it on potatoes and veggies. The only bread I eat is the Buthanese Red Rice and it lasts me months. I'd rather have my sandwich on a Lundberg wild rice cake spead with cream cheese and topped with meat, tomatoes & cheese. Anyhow, they suggest easing up on the dairy when you first go gluten free. I didn't but limited myself to cheese only. Good luck!

I went dairy free for the first year I was on the diet and then they eased it back into my diet and here I am today sitting at the computer eating string cheese and a glass of milk. If you go off it for a while it willl help your intestines heal easier.

    • If you do have celiac disease, antibodies can continue to rise and attack for days, week or months after a gluten exposure.   I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Thanks for the thoughtful replies, everybody!  I want to highlight that it's just been almost 4 weeks since I've eliminated gluten (and I've been very strict about it) - prior, I could eat gluten with no issues that like this. A sandwich would rob me of energy, but not in a way I could associate with having eaten the sandwich. How insane that four weeks off of gluten could produce this new exposure reaction for me   1.5 weeks into being gluten-free I felt well enough to taper off my OCD meds and so, while I haven had had any noticible negative reactions, SSRI withdrawals can resemble gluten exposure (although the symptoms I don't think are often delayed) - so I wonder if a weird mix is happening there.  And also... I'm mostly just stunned that my body could react so extremely now to what it used to take with relative ease a mere 26ish days ago. It's good to know this is an actual thing and not me being dramatic about my new eating regimen.   It literally feels like death and like I'll never getting through it - but I'm staying reasonable about it and woke up this morning feeling less terrible (although I've had to make several trips to the bathroom - tmi I know).  Thanks so much!
    • Would like to add to this- while eating gluten I would get a random hive here or there. Since giving up gluten a few days ago, I've had a hive pop up yesterday and today. I'm at such a loss as to why I'm feeling worse. Is this some sort of detox? Is this something experienced by others?
    • Isn't it bliss to be able to eat normal food again!  And yet - things can't be right yet, as like you, I pay for it later.  The sparkling wine was a real surprise to me: I don't like alcohol normally and I drank it to be sociable - if alcohol has this affect on others with gastritis, I now understand why the last consultant I saw asked if I drank.  She was obviously going to tell me to stop!  What an irritant! I've got a month until I need to come off Zantac, so I need to stop these treats.  Partly I upped my intake of normal food as I was concerned about weight loss.  It showed me that yes, my weight will hold or go up if I eat more fat, so I think it is only that which is causing the weight to come off.  At least, I hope it is. Still, at my age I don't want too lose too much - I have a fear it will make me look like a prune!   Stress continues to be a factor for me which ain't helping. But I'm determined to beat this!  
    • Awww Jhern...I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  (((((Hugs))))) Please ask your Dr for a full thyroid panel to get a complete picture.  That includes TSH, free T4, free T3, TPOAb and TgAb...the last 2 are antibodies.  With a TSH that high, I would feel terrible...tired and achy for sure.  Most people, including me, feel best with their TSH around 1.  Some labs show an outdated range of .5-4.5.  I would bet that you would benefit from some thyroid medication. The weight gain could be from healing and absorbing nutrients too. I hope you get some answers and start feeling better soon!
