A friend of mine made breakfast and everything as far as I knew was gluten-free. I even checked the sausage online and it had no iffy ingredients. I got sick. Could it have been the olive oil? Are there hidden ingredients in it??

Really, olive oil should be safe. It must have been something else.

Unless she has a gluten-free household, it was probably cross contamination.

Olive oil is definitely gluten-free. So are other cooking oils.

i would also assume it was cross-contamination.

breakfast makes me think eggs (in a potentially scratched teflon pan?) or bread (in a toaster)?

hope you feel better!

I know this is a few days old thread....but I have to say ...most everything I have read and what my doc has told me is to avoid hydrogenated oils as a celiac.

EVERYTIME...I eat something with hydrogenated oil....I get sick...snickers has it.....what ever cooking oil may have it....when I eat that same food without it...I'm fine.

Unless I know its extra virgin.....or expeller pressed...I don't use it....and then I am fine.

My GI said...using anything not expeller pressed, or non-hydrogenated is like pouring motor oil over the already damaged intestines and while its not the oil itself...its the coating it puts on it....and the food that ferments and doesn't digest properly in an already damaged gi tract that causes you to get sick.

Just my newbie two cents....

There is a new oil that contains wheat germ. It is a product called OLYS and is made by Carapelli (also makers of olive oil). It is easy to avoid this product because there is a big picture of wheat on the label and it clearly says that it is made from cereals. However, it is worth asking at restaurants or at other people's homes if they are using this product. It is supposed to be healthy, and therefore might get drizzled over a salad in 'healthy' eateries.

Also...this product just came out in Canada (where I live) so I am not sure if it is available in the US or if it has the same name (sometimes they change the names from country to country.)

Hope this helps

thanks for this posting, when I eat olive oil I feel like there is oil in my mouth, even the next day.

Be aware some sell non-virgin olive oil as virgin.

I'm going to try avoiding the hydroginated oil, wonder if that's on the label.

My home is not 100% gluten free and I have never had a problem with cc. Not everyone with a mixed household has to worry about this...it depends on how well everyone works it. Olive oil is safe...never had any that posed a problem.

Please take note that this thread originated in 2006. Product information changed.

And yes, as Gemini and others have stated, Olive Oil should not be a concern for those with gluten concerns.

Olive oil was gluten-free in 2006 and remains so.

    • Ok, so I have another question for all of you professional Celiacs. I read an article recently that talked about a study that was done on people with Celiac's disease, which said that some of them (a small number) had high levels of arsenic in their systems because of all of the rice products that they eat. Now, I don't eat a ton of rice, but we do have gluten-free pasta a couple times a week, my son and I like rice Chex, and I know there's brown rice flour in the pizza crusts I use and in the gluten-free bread that I eat. How worried about arsenic poisoning do we need to be? I'm not downing rice at every meal but I do eat it daily, I'm sure. I rarely eat rice, rice. Usually it's the rice flour that's in things. Is this one more thing to keep me up at night? Because now I'm like, "Oh this is great. I'm trading gluten for arsenic." I need to eat carbs. If I just eat fruits and veggies and meat I'll lose weight which stresses me out. I want to be able to eat toast with peanut butter and eggs but I worry my toast is killing me. Am I being a little dramatic.
    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • Your daughter could have non celiac gluten sensitivity. That would correspond to negative celiac tests coupled with positive reaction to the gluten free diet. Whilst there are similarities to celiac presentation it appears that neuro symptoms are more common in ncgs patients.  That seems to be the case for me anyway!  The condition is as yet poorly understood but there is progress being made, check out a topic I just started on the pre diagnosis thread with some info and links.  The remarks by umberto Volta in particular are just about the best summation I've yet seen on where the research is at.  I will post a link later.
    • The gi may be able to see some signs of celiac visually but the chances are you will have to wait a couple of weeks for the biopsies before there's any confirmation. The damage to the villi is too small to detect with naked eye I think. as long as your eating some gluten each day you will have done all you can for a diagnosis. Not long now so go ahead and treat yourself to a nice cheesecake, fish and chips etc.  
    • check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.
