Rosarita Refried Beans

Does anyone eat them?? I called and was told the distilled vinegar that is in them can come from wheat OR corn, and that the distilling process should remove the gluten, but they can't call them gluten free because of that, and also that it is in all their varieties. So, are they safe or not safe??

I wouldn't be able to eat them but there are many who could. Not all of us react to distilled gluten grains. Since you are very new to the diet I would pass on those until you heal a bit more. Your own refries are really easy to make. Just take some canned or cooked fresh beans and put them in a fry pan with a bit of bacon fat. Crush them up with a fork as they cook. If you wanted you could add a bit of finely chopped onion or peppers. These will keep really well in the fridge if you want to make a big batch to eat over the week.

Thank you. I often make my own pintos in a crock pot with dried beans, chicken broth, and seasonings and they are VERY good, so I guess I'll just have to get into the habit of doing this more often. But, I used to use rosarita a lot when I was in a hurry. I guess those days are over.

Not neccesarily, just wait till you have healed up well and then try them. But I bet the ones you make taste better. Have you tried freezing the ones you make for busy days?

I was JUST going to see if that might work :) I will try it for sure. We all love pinto beans and my kids loves burritos. By the way I am so sorry to read about your twin brother. That must have been extremely hard for you. Of course no words I can offer will make any difference but I wanted to just say I'm sorry.

Thank you for your kind words about my brother. Yes it was, and sometimes still is, hard. Losing a twin is like losing a part of yourself. He was a special person and like the rest of the family likely a celiac. He had given the world what he was meant to contribute though and even though his time was short he made the most of that time.

    • Hello and welcome First, sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Myself and many others here can empathise and I know how desperate you will be to simply feel well. You may need to delay that just a little bit longer however: Maybe? It's impossible to answer because the test is looking for antibodies created by the immune system and different people's immune systems react differently. You may test positive as Jen says and go on to the next stage, because an endoscopy is the usual last part of the process, or you may test negative and be left wondering if you'd only stayed eating gluten longer would it be different. Doctors like to try to play it safe which is why they insist on a gluten challenge period where you are definitely having gluten each day.  It gets more confusing. You may be like me, finding all these symptoms that seem to relate to consuming gluten but then testing negative for celiac. This could mean Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) for which there is no test or it could mean you needed a longer challenge. I did 6 weeks and couldnt face any longer, sometimes I wonder if I'd done 8 would I have got a different result? Although I had been strictly gluten free before then so perhaps not a good comparison.  I think you need to use this time to push for an answer and know that once testing is over, whatever the results, you can give the gluten free diet a proper try. You do have the option of speaking to your doctor and asking for an earlier test, but you may have to pay for that and if its negative you may want to stay on gluten to complete the challenge period for a more definitive answer. Best of luck!   
    • I suspect that there is no "right" answer for you.  If the lab work comes out negative, I don't think you can say with 100% certainty that it isn't a false negative. If it's positive, you can keep eating gluten and pursue endoscopy. But, if it's negative, I think there's still a chance that it's a false negative. You can continue with a gluten challenge (the equivalent of 1 piece of bread per day) and get retested in the future. Good luck!  
    • With celiac you can't ingest gluten at all, ever, not even a smidge. It can take months to get better once you go completely gluten free. And it can take months to recover from accidental gluten ingestion. So you probably haven't started recovering yet. Going gluten free is not easy for many people so you're not alone in this.
    • What type of test did you use?
    • Ever since being diagnosed almost 3 mo. ago I'm getting increased joint pain/tingling.   And I've also starting getting (on some days) pains in my eye, sore throats, and pain areas on my neck to the touch.  I will admit I've found out what I put in my mouth did contain gluten on 'some' occasions over the last 3 mo. after being diagnosed.  But I'm hardly eating any gluten compared to what I was eating over 3 mo ago.   But my joint issues, sore throat, and new skin pain areas have significantly increased or just started since my diagnosis.   I had some wrist pain prior to diagnosis and sometimes tingling in my finger tip and tip of my thumb.   I've had two EMG tests and they said it didn't show carpal tunnel.   The only other test would be ultrasound for detecting carpal tunnel.   I said forget it.   I think my issues are related to being celiac.  It seems the medical profession leaves it up to patients to figure out their own what diet and vitamin supplements that should/should not be taking after being diagnosed.   Since I don't know if it's stress, vitamin/mineral deficiency, nerve related I have taken it upon myself to call my primary and request a vitamin and mineral deficiency test.    I was taking a Centrum Men's multivitamin (gluten free) after diagnosis since I was concerned about getting enough vitamins on gluten free diet.   My primary said to stop taking the multivitamin for two weeks and then have my vitamin and mineral blood test taken.   Two weeks seems like too long of a time just to flush out the multivitamins.   Especially if I am deficient.  But that's what I'm doing. I was wondering if anyone has had increased joint pain/tingling, increased sore throats, and skin pain areas to the touch, AFTER being on a gluten diet.  And were you able to find out the cause, and what helped with these issues.
