Chick Peas

Is it normal to get diarrhea from eating chick peas, or could that be a sign of another intolerance?

Millet: Is millet the same thing as corn? I'm intolerant of millet so am wondering about corn too now.

Not sure if it's "normal" or not to get diarrhea from chick peas, but I do know that they're gluten free. So you could very well have another intolerance. And no, millet isn't the same thing as corn...it's a different cereal grain.

:-) Feel better!

It may well be because so many of us can't tolerate carbs in general - it seems that we may be lacking, possibly due to the gut damage or other factors, enough of the correct enzymes to be able to break it down properly.

Apparently, improperly digested or undigested carbohydrates are yummy food for yeasts and other pathogens and the toxins they give off during the carb digestion can cause reactions. Some carbs may be more problematic for us than others. I get the feeling that when something like gluten is removed from the diet although they may die back initially, they very likely then adapt to a different food source and come back with a vengeance! That could explain why some do not get better on a gluten-free diet, or feel better for a while then get worse again.

As much as I like chick peas as hoummous etc., I have to avoid them generally as my body can't cope with carbs very well and they are very carb-dense (although I think the carb-level is lowered when they are sprouted - and they also then contain lots of enzymes which may help in their digestion)

I am researching enzymes at the moment as I feel that a lack of certain enzymes may well be the issue behind a lot of my health problems over the years. Plant-based ones are better than animal-based and I am also trying to find some without betaine added as I tried some with that and they gave me D and a sore stomach. Not enough acid can slow the digestion - too much can speed it up. There are a lot of different brands on the market and I have realised that not all Digestive Enzyme brands are good ones!

Through trial and error, I find that I need some carbs. However, I can't tolerate legumes at all. I get sicker from those than gluten or anything else I'm sensitive to.

Strangely, I don't get D with legumes (I do with the other foods I'm sensitive to), rather I get horrible nausea. It feels like I've been poisoned.

In answer to your question, it's not "normal" to get D from chick peas but you could have an intolerance to them that didn't show up before you were gluten-free. That's what happened to me.

I don't tolerate canned or dried chick peas but can tolerate frozen ones. I can also eat fresh so I don't think it's the chick peas. There may be something in the processing so you might want to try another brand and see if that makes a difference. It might not necessarily be a gluten thing. It could just be that you don't tolerate chick peas or there is some preservative that is causing a problem.

A lot of chick peas and beans state on the label that they are processed in a facility that also processes wheat. That might be the problem. Same with the millet.

I have the same reaction.. I love hummus, but I get extreme bloating, gas, and C, as well as some wicked fluid retention.

I read on another discussion board that someone found some grains of pearl barley in their lentils, then when I went shopping today they'd added to the label of the green lentils I normally buy "may contain gluten". Is it possible that chickpeas could be contaminated by pearl barley as well?

AliB - that is very interesting what you said about our bodies not being able to digest carbs particularly well. I caught my celiac fairly early; my villa were only mildly blunted and I had mild malabsorption. But I was suffering from major GI symptoms, mainly excessive gas, D, bloating, etc.

Since cutting out gluten (about 7 months), I've definitely felt much much better. There was a period of time I had no gas issues. And not to be gross, but the gas I was experiencing was wayyy different than normal gas. Most of you probably know the kind I'm talking about. My life was getting ridiculous, as I would have to stay away from people merely because of my gas. Anyway, for the past couple months, I've noticed myself being more gassy. I have also given up dairy and soy after noticing a link to those foods. I'm starting to think my gas issues are a result of eating too much carbs? I just don't know. It's so frustrating. I really thought I was all better but now that awful gas has crept back in. I don't really have D or the other GI symptoms usually, it's mostly just the gas and occasional stomach bloat/pain. I really notice it after eating hummus (which I love and eat a lot of!), gluten-free bread, gluten-free cereal. I've been trying to cut back on the bread and cereal, but I guess I should cut out the hummus for awhile.

I used to take probiotics after initially going gluten-free. Maybe this helped? Would you (or anyone) recommend taking probiotics? Thanks for any help!

I also have problems digesting chickpeas as well as with beans. Do you have a problem with beans as well?

It is my understanding that it's common practice to rotate chickpea and wheat crops so chickpeas are often cross contaminated at the farmer's field. I can't believe so many celiacs are able to eat them? What a luxury. Chickpeas, chickpea flour, even chickpea cross contamination all make me ill.

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
