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.

    • Hello again i heard somewhere that if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease after all the tests have been done you are entitled to a prescription of food containing gluten free food. I am in the uk but i thought this had been recently discontinued? Anyone help.
    • Hello thankyou its always great to know that other people are going through things the same time. Yes my endoscopy is friday coming at 8.15am, been through the procedure before for diagnosing a hernia so that side of things are ok, just not sure if i needed the biopsy at first being the blood test confirmed  positive but i know now that i do need it not just for me but also for my 11 year old daughter who could also be celiac later and it would be better for her to know 100% mum is celiac.
    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Hey all so ever since about a week ago I felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant, followed by a minor hotflash and it hurts to press on my right side. I'm extremely worried because I was admitted to the ER last night, blood came back fine, xray fine and ultrasound fine. What prompted me to enter the ER was the fact that now my breathing is affected..   SYMPTOMS SO FAR: Sharp Pain Touching My Right Side Minor weakness , no fever. Mucus in stools? (when i wipe its a yellow on the toilet paper sorry for tmi) Right shoulder soreness Mucus in jugular? Or lung!? The "pipe" you can feel on your neck going up to your head, somewhat warm to the touch. Aches to touch. Happens mostly at night. Began last night and returned tonight. Unusually smelly breath. Awful Constipation, when I CAN go barely anything comes out as its flaky. Slight Pain in right leg, comes and goes. Very active stomach, gurgling can be heard from as high up as my chest. Slight stomach pain relief when massaging. I'm very worried people I'm petrified of surgery and I don't want to die.. But I don't understand why everything would come clean if im experiecing these symptoms?   Anyways
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
