Is salt something I should worry about being contaminated?

Like before we buy it even.

No. Don't worry about salt. :) Reading your tag, I'd worry about the small amounts of lactose free milk. Have you tried coconut milk, in the can, without preservatives and additives (from oriental or indian grocers)? Good luck.

Regular table salt has dextrose added to stabilize the iodine, which is an issue if you are avoiding corn. It can have flow agents added as well. We use celtic salt.

We have had problems with salt. I think that only the most sensitive of super sensitives have to worry about it. It ended up that they were using a gluten containing soap to clean out their lines. They have since switched brands. To find out you can stop eating the salt for a few days and then eat it again. If the reaction was tiny, then eat more than the usual amount.

Idodized salt can irritate DH if you have it. I cut it out because of that but then had to add it back in once my skin rash healed to keep my thyroid healthy. I still mostly use Sea salt and Kosher salt.

If you do decide to go for sea salt, to avoid the dextrose or anti-caking agents in so much of the iodized salt, just make sure to up your sea food intake significantly or find a good iodine supplement.

I did react to contamination in my salt, but I also react to pretty much all processed food, too. If you are eating processed food without much trouble, your sensitivity level is probably at a level where salt is probably not going to be an issue. :)

If, on the other hand, processed food is a real problem for you? Steph's suggestion to check it is pretty much exactly what we did once salt was suspected.

    • Hello I m new at this forum. I am 24 years old. My mother and I have hypothyroidism and a day before I found out about celiac, the symptoms of celiac and hypothyroidism are almost similar and i have read that both diseases can go hand in hand. I have felt that every time when i eat macaroni and spicy rice  I have loose stool. I eat whole wheat loaf and that doesnt bother me at all. So I want to order tests for tTG IgA and immunoglobulin IgA . I m not on gluten free diet so do i need to have more gluten before tests???
    • Wow!  My kid  did a 5th grade project on cancer-sniffing dogs.  Besides her written report, we demonstrated a dog's ability to sniff out "cancer" by bringing in our Labrador.    My daughter trained our lab to find a tiny bit of food hidden in cups.  I have joked before about the need for a dog who could sniff out gluten.  My bet is that the dog would beat out a portable sensor, but maybe it is because I am partial to dogs: I found this video today about this very subject: http://www.today.com/health/gluten-sniffing-dogs-help-people-celiac-disease-t112149
