Hellman's Mayonnaise

17 posts in this topic

I saw where someone on this board said that Hellman's Mayonnaise is gluten-free and it also says that it is on their site BUT Gluten Guard claims that it has gluten because it has disodium.

Does anyone know for sure which it is and if disodium is a bad ingredient.

Thanks!

Disodium is not an ingredient. It is the first word of a two word ingredient. What is the second word?

I use Best Foods (same as Hellman's West of the Rockies) without issue. It is a Unilever company and I thought that is one of the companies that clearly labels.

Gluten Guard has disodium listed as what causes it to be listed as containing gluten.

On the label it says calcium disodium EDTA.

Thanks!

Hellman's Mayo is safe.

What they (the gluten guard) is probably referring to is "Disodium Wheatgermamido Peg-2 Sulfosuccinate" not just disodium. That was listed on celiac.com's list of forbidden ingredients. http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodi...-31106385914.04

Calcium disodium is safe:

these lists are great----refer to them often!

hope this helps clear up the confusion.

Thanks, Laura.

From reading your list of sensitivities I see that we've got a lot of the same food issues. I'm also unable to eat tomatoes, potatoes and pretty much anything fresh.

Did you ever consider IBS as a cause?

Umm... 'Calcium disodum' should not be on that list. It's not a compound, it's a typo. There should be a third word that tells you what the entire compound is. There are many compounds that could start with "Calcium disodium", and some of them are probably not safe.

(I have a degree in Chemistry.)

Thanks, Katherine. Maybe you could email/PM Scott (admin) since he is the "owner" of the lists and discuss that with him to update it! Every little it helps.

cycler-IBS is often just a term that they use when they don't know what is causing the problems. I was told I had IBS over 2 years ago...turns out I don't, I had Celiac. They gave me all kinds of other diagnoses---none of which I had. Go figure.

Unfortunately, I wish it were that simple for me. But thank you for the suggestion.

I was told by someone that IBS stands for: I Be Stumped. I believe that to be true, if a doctor doesn't know, he tells you IBS so you have something to start with. I also was diagnosed with IBS 25 yrs ago.

Yep. Another version is "I'm Basically Stumped"....

BTW, I told this to my doctor last week when I was in for a physical. She had an intern with her and she was explaining the differences between me (quite the study example I am!!! LOL!) and the person they saw before me who had IBS. I said "Oh, we in the celiac world call that the "I'm Basically Stumped" diagnosis" and she cracked up laughing - she thought that was great!

Gluten guard is a downloadable program to your computer or PDA which lists gluten free products or what is in a product for them to determine that it isn't gluten free. There is a free version and one that you buy but there are too many mistakes for it to be worth it.

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
