Question About Planter's Nut Products
0

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering why Planters nuts are said to be safe and are not produced in a gluten containing facility, yet when I look at their trail mixes, it says that those were processed in a gluten containing facility. Is it possible that their nuts and their trail mixes are produced in 2 separate facilities, the latter one containing gluten? I heard their nuts were safe but seeing this cross contamination issue with their trail mixes is making me think twice with their nuts...

Good question.

most likely it's two different facilities, plenty of companies have the same set up going on...i don't think i've seen anybody get sick from a kraft product and i've had their nuts plenty of times with no issues...if they were made in a facility with gluten, it would say it, just like how the trail nuts do

Planters is indeed a Kraft brand, and Kraft will clearly list any source of gluten in the ingredients, no matter how small the amount.

we buy Planters and have had no problems. Can't believe how many brands of nuts have wheat in them. What's with that! :angry:

*cough* uh...actually, lemme raise my hand on that one. ;) I have trouble with Kraft brands, usually. I'm more sensitive than most, however. My father and brother are less sensitive and seem to eat them without trouble.

see, my problem is that I don't have any reaction when I'm glutened. Which is great, but also a problem because I don't know if I continue to accidentally consume gluten which is preventing me from healing. I will get my blood rechecked in October in Chicago, but 3 months ago, my antibodies were still very elevated, despite being on the gluten free diet for a year.

and, yes, I hate it that nuts are all processed in facilities with wheat! Very annoying. I can't seem to find any nuts in my town that are safe besides Planters (which only have limited types of nuts, mostly salted). I just make an order from nutsonline.com but they were SO expensive. Urghh.

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too. 
    • I hear ya. I spend all day in the bathroom *thinking* something's going to happen. lol
