Hi everyone,

Well I will get right to the point. Here is the question TROPICANA ORANGE JUICE VIT -D AND CALICIUM ADDED!!

Well I just had some with my dinner which I know was ok nalleys gluten free chili and orida crispy frenc fries.

I pretty sure that the OJ is what made me sick as :( you know what. What is it with citric acid I think I read somewhere that it is not good for celiacs I really don't know or remember.

Anyone out there with an answer ? I haven't had this OJ in awhile and i really think it caused it. :angry:

So bloated I feel 7 months pregnant and I know thats not the case LOL :rolleyes:

Help please

I had heard that OJ fortified with calcium was a no-no. I don't know why though. The citric acid shouldn't be a problem as it is either derived from corn or lemon. We haven't had any in quite some time though. Citric acid is in many things that celiacs eat.

Hope this clears up quickly for you. :(

In reguards to Tropicana brand. They are sort of tricky to figure out. Last info that I have heard says that 100% juices from them are gluten-free.......if it isn't 100% then it is probably not. You might want to do a search of the board (put tropicana in the search box) and you will come up with tons of info. The most recent post on it that I found was here: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...mp;hl=tropicana

Also, calling/writing the company is the best way to find out the status on a product. You can send them a quick e-mail. Let us know what you find out.

Citric acid is yet another old celiac urban legend foisted on us by who knows who. Citric acid is gluten-free.

According to the Food Labeling Law of 2006, all companies must disclose any wheat used in their products. The chances of barley or malt in OJ is slim.

I heard that Tropicana was not gluten free. In fact on kind of oj my mom had said malodextrin or something like that.

Maltodextrin really is not a concern. Not only is it virtually always gluten-free in the U.S., if it IS derived from wheat, it must clearly list it. This was the law for maltodextrin even before the current allergen law.

I finally got a reply from Tropicana, I knew from my own experience that much of what they make is not safe. Only the juices that say they are 100% just juice are okay. I got very, very ill from a lemonade they make called 'Simply Lemonade' so make sure you read the ingredients and not just the label.

Their reply:

We're sorry the information you were looking for was not available on

the Tropicana website. We'll be sure to pass along your comments to

our

webmasters.

That said-- although we don't have a list, we're happy to tell you all

Tropicana products that are 100% juice, including Fruit Wise, are

gluten free. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that gluten is not

present

in products that are less than 100% juice.

You can easily determine if a Tropicana product is 100% juice by

looking for the Nutrition Facts Panel on the package; the percentage of

juice

is located just above that panel. We do our best to provide accurate

information so that you can make informed choices about the products

you

purchase.

We hope this information is helpful, Krista. Thanks for your interest

in our products and for taking the time to contact us.

If you drank the orange juice with dinner or after dinner, I would guess it's just the juice, not a gluten reaction. If I drink fruit juice, I drink it away from food, or before a meal. Chili and OJ would have made me feel bad with no gluten!

Are the Ore Ida crispy fries safe? For some reason I thought the crispy one were not safe.

Hi Rebecca47,

I saw your post and think I can add some light to the problem.

I have experienced this same thing and after seeing what exactly you ate, I can see why you were bloated - and the answer isn't gluten at all. I suggest the problem lies with a sensitive/weakened digestive system and a bad food combination.

The digestive enzymes required to break down beans and the ones required to digest fruit aren't very compatible, and having them both at the same meal weakens your body's digestive capability. What happens is that instead of being quietly broken down, a process of fermentation begins, producing loads of gas and discomfort.

Most food-combining information I have seen seems to suggest fruit be eaten a minimum of 30 mins before a meal or a minimum of one hour, preferrably two afterward. This is because of the rapid speed fruit is naturally broken down compared to the slower rate of proteins and complex carbohydrates. I wouldn't be surprised if you also felt exhausted shortly after eating.

Because of our already touchy systems, I recommend you read up on food-combining. Small things can help quite a bit. imagine you could reproduce the results of your meal by adding any number of fruits or fruit juices. Since I learned about this, I never have gas problems with beans. Food combining opinions differ.. I stick to some, others I ignore because I don't want to live on boring meals, but that fruit one's worked well for me.

I hope some of this helps :)

P.S. I had the exact same problem in the past. Strengthening my digestion with apple cider vinegar and glutamic acid helped, also.

I know that I can't drink OJ because it is wayyy to acidic. It is really hard on my stomach. This and chilli...like someone said...OUCH! I don't think it's the gluten problem, but probably the fact that oj is really acidic.

I REALLY SHOULDN'T COMPUTE BEFORE COFFEE. SORRY FOR THE REDUNDANT POST BELOW. I HADN'T READ THE REST OF THE CONVERSATION.

Our local Celiac group sent out a warning last June about the enhanced juices. Below are the responses they received from Tropicana:

TROPICANA PRODUCTS. Thank you for contacting us about a Tropicana Product. We do our best to provide accurate information so that you can make informed choices about the products you purchase. All Tropicana products that are 100% juice, including Fruit Wise, are gluten free.
Unfortunately, for products that are less than 100% juice, we cannot guarantee that gluten is not present.
You can easily determine if a Tropicana product is 100% juice by looking for the Nutrition Facts Panel on the package; the percentage of juice is located just above that panel. Theresa Tropicana Consumer Response.

Their website says it's 100% juice but Calcium and vit D are not part of regular OJ. I'd ask the Tropicana people about it. http://www.tropicana.com/TRP_ContactUs/Con...S_ContactUS.cfm

Let us know what you find out.

If OJ is too acidic, you might want to try something I've gotten hooked on -- OJ & sparkling water. It makes a great drink and it's much healthier than sodas.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
