I purchased Primal Strips, a Meatless Vegan Jerky product from Primal Spirit Foods. THe package clearly states Gluten Free on it. It lists as an ingredient (Gluten-Free) Soy sauce (Water, Non-GMO Soybeans, Wheat, Sea salt) how can this be listed gluten free. Glad i ate 2 bites before reading this. Anyone else ever had this problem?

That's whacky. I'm not familiar with the product but I suspect the labeling is wrong. Can you contact the manufacturer?

i tried, i left a message. When you look at thier product info, they have removed the gluten-free tag on thier website. And they no longer list wheat in thier soy sauce on the site. as my stomach begins to gurgle.... I am Mad!!!

I'm thinking that the company doesn't understand what "gluten-free" means. I don't think I would trust any of their products.

Please let us know if the company contacts you back and let us know what they say.

This is just maddening! I had issues yesterday and took pepto on the advice of someone here and it made me feel so much better! I mean I was still ick but at least I could take my daughter to her dr. appt that had been scheduled for a month.

Hope you feel better quick!

Perhaps it has such a small amount of soy sauce that the gluten content is below the legal ppm limit to be considered a gluten-containing item? Sort of like McDonalds' fries that have wheat but can be called gluten free (not trying to start the Mcdonald's debate up, just using it as an example). That's all I can think of...

I hope you don't get too sick. :( I'd report them to the FDA. That label is illegal and dangerous.

I thought about it. I think i will wait to here from the company and give them a chance to respond. I went back to their web page and looked at their labeling, and they currently do not advertise to be gluten free. They have also removed wheat as an ingredient in their soy sauce. I will wait to here back from them, i saved the package. Maybe i can get some free GLuten free jerkey out of it!

I suspect you are right. But i do wonder why on the web page it is no longer listed as gluten free. I will know soon enough. It's been about 7 hours since the incident and this is where i usually start getting the bad pain. So far nothing too unusual.

Nothing too bad at the moment. A little dizzy and my favorite, GAS!. But no major cramps yet! I really appreciate the genuine concern, and love coming on here for help. What a battle we face dailly just trying to live normal lives.

I will certainly update as soon as i here from the company. I have left them emails on both the company website and their facebook page. Voicemail too.

God bless

Thanks for pointing this out Bryan. It does always pay to check the ingredients, even if they do put gluten free on the front label. Some companies have no clue it seems.

THey called me back and said that they have removed the wheat from the Soy suace even though they have had it tested for Gluten. She claimed they had a process that removes the gluten from the wheat during fermentation.

They however do not list their product as gluten free but say that it is. ?

I will say it was deeelicousss!

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
