Rice Noodles

Rate this topic

I need some info on rice noodles from the Chinese market. Are they really gluten free or maybe made on machines that have wheat flour on them from other noodles. It is either that or the chocolate rice chex my friend bought me or the rice chex I bought myself. HELP I'm miserable!

I can't be 100% sure without seeing the ingredients for the rice noodles, but my guess would be the rice noodles. I think from what I've heard, Chex is actually making quite an effort to make sure no cross contamination occurs with their gluten free rice chex mix. I have had several boxes of that lately and have not had any issues (although I'm sure they are not perfect). I noticed the other day when I went shopping that some rice noodles in the ethnic food aisle said "gluten free" on them and there were other ones that looked completely identical that did not. I would wager that those ones are probably made in the same facilities that process wheat or they may have a gluten stabilizer (or maybe some flavoring or spices that have gluten). I'd check the noodles you got to make sure that they say gluten free on them. If not, make sure next time you get the gluten free ones :o) Also, on a side note, did you get the brand name Chex? I have noticed that the store brand (I go to Krogers/Bakers) "Chex" have suspect ingredients in them that the brand name Chex cereal does not have. Hope you feel better soon!! I know how it goes!

I know it's so frustrating but it probably could be CC from either. I know some people have been having problems with Chex and if the labeling on the Chinese rice noodles isn't specific, that may be a culprit.

Sorry you feel rotten!

Thank you for your reply-It is the brand name Chex and I also have Kroger but they haven't jumped on the gluten-free wagon yet. I will have to look for gluten-free rice noodles-I got mine from the Chinese market in Denver and although the ingredients list was in English-rice water sulfites- the rest of the label was Chinese. Darn! It was so fun shopping there. Thanks for the good wishes.

    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
