Aldi Foods A Possible Problem.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So yesterday or maybe 2 days ago im not sure. I had a batch of gluten-free pancakes even with gluten-free syrup, best thing I ever had. Since then, I keep having small stomach pains and jut randomly tired like i got gluttened. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out what is causing it. All ive had since the pancakes (which i know was all gluten-free down to the butter i used) was some cereal (choco chex corn flakes gluten-free) and Millvale Corn flakes, packaged by ADLI food store. It doesnt say gluten-free, but it contains no wheat (yes i know not good enough for some people) but then theres also the warning :processed on the same equipment that produces wheat, soy, and other allergens: yet I never had a problem with things like this before. it seems like everything I eat, is causing small stomach pains, barely noticable pains, (like a 1 out of 10) but it still worrys me cause it seems like its happening with everything ive eaten for the past few days. Am i just getting that paranoid or should i be worried ?

Do the Aldi corn flakes have Malt in them? That seems to show up in cereals that seem like they should be gluten-free.

Found this: http://www.zeer.com/Food-Products/Millville-Corn-Flakes/000037514

Milled Corn, Sugar, Salt, Malt Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup. Vitamins and Minerals: Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C)Reduced Iron, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6)Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)Vitamin A Palmitate, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1)Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. BHT Added to Packaging Material to Help Preserve Freshness.

Malt is made from barley and barley has gluten.

If you eat that stuff that's made on shared equipment, you do run that risk... whether it's 1 in 10, in your case. But if you get that 1 in 10 product that makes you feel sick, to me, it's not worth it. I generally avoid foods that have a made on shared equipment disclaimer. I don't freak out as much as shared facility foods for myself, although I do try to stay away from those, too. I was having a lot of stomach pain over the last couple of months. I really started paying closer attention to what I ate, (the few things that I don't make) and really avoiding any prepared foods or foods that have the disclaimers. I'm feeling better. ;) Some of us are more sensitive than others.

Initially you won't have a reaction to minute amounts of gluten (from barley malt, cross-contamination etc) yet they are have an effect on the villi, it's the cumulative effect of ingesting small amounts over a long period of time that will then show as problems.

If you had a blood test right now the readings would be off the scale.

I never take chances with my health, ever!

With so many commercial breakfast cereals being made on shared equipment, or having malt or cross contaminated oats or corn in them, it's safest to stick with cereals that are specifically labeled "gluten free."

    • Hi Lucy Lou, I am very glad you were able to get your med compounded and figured out corn derivative compounds are causing you reactions. After my gluten challenge and the fall out that followed I determined I could not have corn derivatives microcrystalline cellulose, maltodextrin (corn), citric acid (corn derived) as well. My joints, gi, and then some react. I had to even remove White distilled vinegar derived from corn from my home as well. So even when something was gluten-free I often had to call to verify it was corn free , make my own, or go  without ex condiments, medicines, vitamins, etc.  I am glad you figured it out. Best wishes on healing.  
    • I had to elminate, carbs, and sugars also due to UC, but I haveen cooking for diabetics for years in my bakery. I do keto based breads, grain free baked goods, nut butters, etc. I have a few grain free low carb recipes in the cooking section like Keto low carb dinner rolls, flat bread, crackers, etc. My bakery also sales keto loaf breads that are a huge hit with my customers. Look at ketogenic/paleo diets. stews, meats, leafy greens creamy soups with nut milks etc. Crock pot and batch meals will be your new friend I imagine.
    • First, let me make this clear.  Your diet may have contributed to diabetes a bit, but the reality is you are either genetically predisposed or not.  That covers both Type 1 (TD1 — autoimmune) and Type 2 (TD2 — insulin resistance).   Has your doctor diagnosed you with TD1 or TD2?  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  It can be determined by measuring antibodies (e.g. GAD).  Like celiac disease, there are several antibody tests for TD1.  It can affect any age.   The body destroys beta cells that help produce insulin.  Insulin resistance (TD2)  is common as we age or eat a poor diet of simple carbohydrates (which is just about everyone in the US!) if you are predisposed.    It runs in families.  It can be treated by diet and if needed, medications and/or insulin.   I recall the same dismay.   I have TD2.  I have made dietary adjustments and have been able to ward off medications that could affect my gut.  You really can lose that sweet tooth!   Here is a link to Blood Sugar 101.  The author is NOT a doctor, but is good at investigating research.  It is a highly regarded website.  She sells a small book, but it contains exactly the same information.  I bought one for my Uncle who is not on the internet (imagine that!).  Learn about “eating to your meter”.  What affects one diabetic may not affect another in terms of elevating blood sugar.  Managing your blood sugar will help prevent all those diabetic complications.  Jenny’s Site also references some very well-respective books written my medical doctors who live with diabetes.  It is a good place to start.  Like this site, it helps me stick to my gluten-free and Lowere carb diet (you need to determine what works for you personally and I can not stress that enough). got to go......    
    •   Had to mention........this made me laugh out loud and how true it is! 
    • You do realize I am starting to drool all over my keyboard?    Your second sentence said it all.  It's been 12 years for me gluten-free so gluten free chewy is fine by me!
