Food For Life Whole Grain Brown Rice Gluten Free Tortillas Reacion

7 posts in this topic

I saw posts about the Food for life corn tortillas and people being gluten-ed, but I just ate a gluten free brown rice one and now have a horrible stomach ache and D. The only thing I ate today was an apple and a banana so I am pretty confident that it has to be this tortilla. I was just curious if anyone else has had any issues w/ these?

I eat the FFL rice tortillas at least once every other day. I've never had reactions to those. I'm VERY sensitive to gluten (and my other 6 diagnosed delayed reaction allergies). 1-3 bites of something with my allergens will give me 2 weeks of gut pain, bloating and indigestion. Gluten gives me excruciating gut pain. However, I've never had any of those reaction symptoms after eating the FFL rice tortillas.

Delayed reaction allergens (like gluten) are difficult to pinpoint. What we eat may not cause obvious symptoms for 24-72 hours after ingestion. Sometimes I don't think I'm reacting at all, because the symptoms are so subtle. However 48-72 hours later I begin to experience more severe pain and reaction symptoms. So I need to consider everything I ate during the past few days, unless I have a label which tells me that I consumed one of my allergens.

I don't eat anything from Food for Life. I haven't trusted them since they labeled spelt bread as "wheat free" a few years back. Someone on the board figured out that they were using barley-treated water in some of the tortillas that were labeled gluten-free. The response when they wrote the company about undeclared gluten was very rude and dismissive. You may be able to find that thread on the board.

I used to eat their tortillas but not anymore. I had bought their bread a few time a while back. The first time I had no reaction. The next time I bought a loaf and ate it I got glutened, and not just a little bit glutened. So you might get lucky and get a product from them that is fine. Or you might not. I decided no more for me.

They seemed confused about what was gluten-free and what wasn't. The website at the time listed things under gluten-free that were not. They were taken off part of the website but still made to look like they were gluten-free. I loved those rice tortillas. I would make super thin crust pizzas on them. I don't eat them any more after my correspondence with the company. I keep hoping they will get thier act together...... :unsure:

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
