I've read in other threads that Kraft is a company that gives full disclosure on their labels. But something is not right, because I got glutened off their barbecue sauce. I used the Mesquite Smoked barbecue sauce to make ribs Friday night (yes, I checked label in store before I bought, and double-checked in online) and I got sick. Glutened sick, which I'm familiar with how it feels. This does not happen with the Original flavor.

Just wanted to give everyone fair warning about this flavor.

Is there any possibility whatsoever that maybe it was some kind of a flu bug? Lots of viruses are going around right now....

I trust Kraft absolutely, completely 100%...... never had a problem with them.

What kind of distilled vinegar is used in it? For most of us gluten grains when distilled are fine but for the rare oddball like myself a reaction will occur. This doesn't mean it isn't safe for most celiacs as the majority do tolerate it.

Just wanted to chime in for those of us who are trying to watch our calories, fat, carbs, sugars, and gluten. I recently discovered Walden Farms products at Sprouts:

http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/sauce_bbq.html

They use Splenda so no good if you're scared of that stuff but their BBQ sauce which is 'okay' has no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind. It's no Sweet Baby Rays but it works. Their salad dressings also have no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars.

The saying under my name says it all about how I feel about mainstream products. To those of you who have not ever become sick by eating supposedly "gluten-free" products by Kraft I would simply like to point out that cc WILL happen in facilities that are not dedicated. It would be silly to believe that it is impossible for someone to get glutenized by eating something that was manufactured in one of Kraft's facilities. It probably happens more than you think but may often be written off as it was by posters here as the flu or some other possibility.

I am an ultra sensitive celiac that actually passes out within hours of eating gluten. When I was first diagnosed and I didn't really realize how serious the cc issue was, I ate many mainstream products that were supposedly gluten free. I can tell you that with the exception of a very few items, I passed out everytime, Kraft products included. That's my personal experience.

It's unfortunate that you are super sensitive.

Of course CC will happen. But not all the time, equally, with all products made in a facility that also processes wheat products. That would be just as silly to believe.

Yes of course, I didn't mean that every mainstream item would be cross contaminated everytime. I was merely saying that mainstream items can in no way be guaranteed gluten-free and are susceptible to CC. So it would not be unrealistic to discover that someone got glutenized by Kraft BBQ sauce, that's all.

I would like to say that I do not touch the BBQ sauces because a great deal of time they have Barley Malt in them which is a gluten.

I have never been made sick by Kraft and I am so sensitive that miniscule crumbs devastate me. I would definitely suggest calling the company.

Yeah I must also chime in here that I am scarily sensitive to gluten that sometimes I swear just some particles in the air, or one or 2 crumbs touching that I eat, is enough to trigger a reaction. Even with that fact, I have never, ever had a problem with Kraft. If I buy any bbq sauces or salad dressings, etc I also make sure its made by them and only them.

    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
