Sweet Baby Ray's Bbq Sauce

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm new around here and could use some help. I understand that Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauces are gluten free, but when I eat it, I get a reaction like I just ate gluten. Has anyone else had this experience and might have an idea what other ingredient might be causing the reaction? As of now, I've only been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, no other food or additive allergies or sensitivities.

Thanks!

There is nothing that yells "gluten" and it is well used among members here. There are some corn derived ingredients though.

I have contacted Sweet Baby Ray's by phone, and was assured it was gluten-free. I have personally eaten it many times with no ill effects, and I'm highly sensitive.

All that said, it may be that you are sensitive to one of the ingredients in the sauce, or it just doesn't agree with you. I've been at this long enough to think that anyone can be sensitive to just about anything :)

ME too!!1 That is actually why I am on the site today. I have eaten it 3 times and been sick sick sick all the next days....

Suspicious. I emailed the company. I am very sensitive to gluten. Do not know of any other food intolerances. Including corn..I eat often. What is the UPC code on yours? Maybe we have a "bad or contaminated run"

Original BBQ Sauce: 013409451328 (my UPC) 340 7A is the code on the bottle neck in red. Does anyone have this and NOT reacting?

I am also a regular user of Sweet Baby Ray's and haven't had any problems with it. I am also very sensitive to any cc or traces of gluten. Possibly you should check into other intollerances?? Maybe the culprit was what you were putting the sauce on? Just a couple of ideas.

We've had no problems here either. You can always try Kraft BBQ Sauce. I'm not sure if all their flavors are gluten-free but you can just read the label. They are a company that does not hide the gluten

Thanks. I will not be using it again. I do not think it would be the other things that I ate..... I had chicken (baked in the oven with only SBR sauce) and homemade mashed potatoes. I only ate about 4-6 bites as I wasnt too hungry.

I REALLY think it is the sauce.....just would love to know what ingrediant it is. OOOOO to have a crystal ball :)

I love the stuff..but had to give it up. Do you have other intolerances to things that may seem gluten like? I had to give it up because I just decided that something in it was giving me a reaction..but not gluten related.

I want to say that just like me..something in it doesn't agree with you..but yours sounds like gluten symptoms.

I was so thrilled to find out this product was gluten free because it's the only bbq sauce i use..but something in it is still affecting my other stuff.

Like you, I was so excited to learn it was gluten-free and used it over ribs in the slow cooker two times. Subtle reactions both times, so I've stopped using it for a few months. Hmm.

If anyone is Allergic to the Pea family like me, then you also might get a reaction from this product like I do! Tamarind is the last ingredient listed on the product label and Tamarind is a sticky brown acidic pulp from the pod of a tree in the pea family! That's why I can't have it.....I tried it a couple of years ago, then learned what Tamarind was after I had a horrible reaction to the product. I'm allergic to Peas and beans and especially anaphylatic to Soy in any form! No beans or bean flours, no peas, no lima beans, no anything in the bean or pea family for me, unfortunately! I do miss bbq! Gluten free just isn't enough for me.

No reaction here and my non gluten-free family loves that I can use a "regular" brand. I didn't even get sick eating at his restaurant. It's in Woodale, IL by the train depot.

Was the pan you baked in free from CC? Do you just use that pan for chicken? Have you had it since before you went gluten free? Metal pans and non stick coated pans can harbor enough gluten to cause CC.

I've used this sauce in the past and never had a gluten reaction. I did however subsequently become intolerant of nightshades, and tomato of course is a big component of most all BBQ sauces. Add mashed potatoes to that meal and there's a double dose of nightshades which would send me into agony all night.

Thanks. I will not be using it again. I do not think it would be the other things that I ate..... I had chicken (baked in the oven with only SBR sauce) and homemade mashed potatoes. I only ate about 4-6 bites as I wasnt too hungry.

I haven't read the ingredients to sweet baby ray's recently, but I bet there is some sort of sweetener in it and I think that can be hard on the healing gut as well. Maybe that gave you a reaction?

I think it has trace amounts of gluten, because I too had a reaction, foggy headedness, sudden onset flatulence 10 mins. after ingesting, etc. I will avoid going forward.

I didn't know Sweet Baby Ray's was gluten-free! May try it again.

We use Cookies BBQ sauce since it is gluten-free (says so on the label), and hubby has not reacted to it.

Please note that you are replying to a 3-year old thread so ingredients may change from time to time.

But the good news is that Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce is gluten-free. http://www.sweetbabyraysmeats.com/FAQ

If someone is newly diagnosed, your tummy may be pretty wonky at first and you may even react to things that are gluten-free.

I can not use it.  Questionable ingredients include Caramel and Modified Food Starch which can vary in their source.....I have felt good for days until tonight.  The only new thing I used was Sweet Baby Rays.  =(

Deanna - I have used Sweet Baby Ray's for years.  I've been gluten free for almost ten years. Caramel color is no longer considerend  an issue and safe to consume. Modified food starch (unless it's emphasized or followed by "wheat", by law)  is generally corn.  All of Sweet Baby Ray's are gluten free. I do think they contain HFCS which does bother me  in other products. Gluten in SBR's is not one of my concerns.

I've also noticed that when I have anything with Sweet Baby Rays I ge a reaction within a few minutes. I know it's supposed to be gluten free but there's something in it that causes this with some of us

    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
