I saw kind has put out a gluten free granola. There are several different varieties and they are made with gluten free oats. I have stayed away from oats for years but I really want to try this granola. Do you eat certified gluten free oats with or without problems? I read so much conflicting info about it I have always just satyed away.

I am able to eat oats as long at they are certified gluten-free, never had a problem even from the start, I did not even know that I should have waited a bit to heal. A good Granola is Bakery on Main there are different flavors. I love the nutty cranberry granola. There is no oats in there. Eating them right now. Expensive but good. Raleys in Nor Cal carries them. Be careful with the oats. Lots of chances for cc.

I eat only the certified gluten-free oats, and eat them at least 5 days a week for breakfast. Never had any problems. I usually buy "Only Oats" by Avena Foods. They're available in Canada, but I'm not sure about elsewhere. I used to eat the gluten-free Bob's Red Mill oats and never had any problems with them either (just switched brands because the Only Oats are cheaper).

be cautious with Kind granola. unfortunately i reacted to it, I suspect due to oats. Also, Bakery on Main , which says gluten free, states under ingredients that it is manufactured on shared equipment. So be careful with that one too. . I miss granolas so much, but for many of us, oats just don't seem to agree... anyone have a good oat free granola recipe? Currently I am just mixing dried cherries with walnuts and fresh fruit. But I miss the intense crunch of granola!

Are you sure that it's shared equipment with gluten? Bakery on Main only makes gluten-free products as far as I know, and that's all their website lists. Are you sure it's not "made in a facility that also processes tree nuts and peanuts"?

But I can eat certified oats just fine. Cream Hill Estates, Only Oats, Bob's Red Mill. They're all quite fine.

I have a good gluten free granola recipe I would be happy to share, if anyone wants it. It's not low calorie, but it's tasty and gluten free. I use Bob's Gluten Free Oats, but whatever works for you would work in the recipe. I've thought of subbing in quinoa flakes, but haven't tried that yet. Although I'm sure you could use any granola recipe that you like and use gluten free ingredients and baking pans, and be just fine. I prefer my own because I know what is in it, it tastes great, and when bake a batch the whole house smells like oatmeal cookies.

Also, Udi's granola is pretty good, for packaged cereal.

Peace,

Beth.

Nope I don't eat gluten free oats at all. React horribly. I even react to gluten free oat cross contamination. So KIND bars are out for me because of the oat cc risk. I used to love them and thought I was reacting to sesame, but it turned out to be oat cc. There are other gluten free products I can't eat because of the cc risk also.

Just wanted to share a study that came out last year -- one of the reasons why oats are so confusing is that not all varieties of oat are the same.

The study (published in Gut and also reviewed here on Celiac.com) took a look at an assortment of different strains of oat.

All the oats were clean/non-contaminated, but only some of them tested as gluten-free. The study used two different types of test:

  • an ELISA test with the G12 antibody
  • a Western Blot, where T-cells from patients with celiac disease were exposed to the oats

The strains that tested positive with the ELISA also caused the cells from celiac patients to have a reaction -- pretty clear evidence that there is not a yes/no answer when it comes to the safety of oats.

Yes! This explains a lot. I can only eat Bob's Red Mill, Cream Hill Estates, and Only Oats. There are other certified gluten-free brands we have here which are sickening, and I was wondering why!

Not as good as oats, but have you tried quinoa flakes? They are nutty like oats and have some substance to go with those dried fruits and nuts.

i LOVE the Kind Peanut Granola & I' m fairly sensitive & never had a problem. I believe this company is a safe company.... I think Udi's granola is good... I'm not crazy about bakery on the main products...but again safe....

remember that newly dx'd should not do oats for at least a year.......the intestinal tract needs time to heal. Oats is alot to handle when trying to heal the I Track at the beginning...and then some will never be able to handle oats....

I've been eating oats since they first came out gluten-free ,(so several years ago). To this day I can not eat more than a single serving more than twice a week ...

    • Pain wise a glutening celiac gets me more central gut pain and much worse with sharpness, urge to vomit, gurgles etc. UC is more along the the outside edges of your abdomen from the sides, lower area around the belt line, and upper area right under the rib cage, and is more of a boat and pleasure pain like your intestines are huge feeling.  UC triggers alot more gas, and makes you want to lie down I get the urge to massage and press on the pressure areas as it seems to help.
      Timing wise Celiac glutening I notice within 20-60mins and main vomiting starts in 1-3hours after eating it. UC flare you get it like 4-18hours or later depending on transit time of your food. A glutening will normally result in both a celiac reaction and a later UC reaction. For me a gluten CC or consumption issue also causes neurological symptoms, this is not true for some people but for me I also have a gluten ataxia, so the anxiety, panic, fog, mind looping, numb hands, loss of coordination or straight up motor loss is definite sign for me. Others will have to keep track with a food diary to nail down there own as every person can have a slightly different reaction.

      I also find with UC I do not directly vomit, Sometimes with UC it can trigger constipation and if not remedied in 12-24 hours leads to m system backing up and vomiting. Celiac can also cause me constipation but there is a slight difference in where it seems to get stuck at first. Hard to explain but you can sort of feel it. Also I find a gluten celiac response will result in a week or more of constipation issues. Starting mid section then moving to the outside gut area and  but some people do not get these and get D instead. So this is not very reliable.

      UC flare ups for me with my damage also always have bloody stools, worse flare ups its not just streaks but clots. Red and Dark red show it is in the large intestines. If you get tar like black  and red it is either a sign it is way back in the large intestine or in the stomach or small intestine. This makes my Anemia SOO much worse. Imagine how you feel with the loss of blood coupled with inability to efficiently absorb nutrients like iron and magnesium

      Thing to recall is UC is mostly the large intestine while celiac is mostly the small, so symptoms and trying to get the feeling of where the problem is can help.  Also if you get a glutening expect to have the UC flare up right after the celiac flare up.

      NOTE it is hard for me to say still, on the exact details and clarity, it has been since june of last year that I had a major gluten consumption issue. UC I get more regular but without the direct comparison in a while my memory is a bit iffy. Just trying to recall those exact pains and feelings from that last time. Also UC seems to wax and wane in and out while almost always being present for months in the background you just feel a bit off in the gut. SO many triggers, I felt that for years I swear til I went to this keto diet and dropped all fruit, sugar, carbs, and grains. Could have been the anemia, but I think it was more of a combination of the inflammation, bleeding, gas, and just being uncomfortable.
    • Hi!  I wasn’t sure where to post this inquiry so I’m sorry if it is in the wrong place!  My blood work was negative for celiac although biopsy was suspicious.  I have severe joint pain and GI issues so have decided to eliminate all gluten to see if that helps. I hear I may need to supplement my diet with vitamins to make up for what I’m missing, but I don’t know what vitamins they are!  Can anyone help? Thanks, Sarah
    • Hello everyone Thank you so much for all your contributions and tips, I'm sorry for my absence but I've had a big project deadline to complete. Over all, I think things are on the mend for me too.  I was quite cynical at the doctors' approach at first. I'd have much rather had a scope to find out what was happening, instead of being prescribed three months of omemprazole or zantac to see if it helped.  Unfortunately the gen on the zantac contraindictaions list stipulated that zantac should only be prescribed if your doctor is sure what is wrong with you, as it might otherwise be covering up cancer!  Those aren't the things a hypochondriac wants to read!  Anyway,  during this that time I've taken one months of omeprazole (20mg) and as that gave me D I changed to two months of zantac (most days only 75mg a day, but doubling the dose on odd occasions when the burn seemed to come back).  During much of this period I've tried to keep my diet low in fat, spicy food, drinking very little caffeine, drinking strong camomile and slipper elm, and I think a key help has not eating for a 12 hour stretch overnight because I think that really helps the stomach heal.  I hope my system is finally recovering and hope to come off the zantac towards the end of this month.  It is hard to phase these things out slowly when you are already on the minimum dose, but all the tips about marshmallow, licorice and slippery elm etc will no doubt come very helpful then!   I have come to the conclusion that this is a new weakness in my system and I'll have to be very careful to avoid gastritis in the future, by no longer taking asprin (unless the doctor ever tells me I have to), not over doing fat, greasy food, etc.  The last time I drank some sparkling wine or fizzy drinks was awful, so I shall avoid them too. Throughout this time probiotics have helped me with the C, upper left quadrant pain  and wind that the zantac seems to have produced! And of course all the help from you guys. Will keep you posted Whitepaw on life post-zantac!
    • Ennis, can you tell us how to tell the difference between a UC flare and a glutening? It must be confusing for folks diagnosed with both to know at first which it is that is happening.
    • i ended up with dairy intolerance over 10 years ago, and celiac over 4 years ago, then this year got ulcerative colitis diagnosis.

      Dairy issues are caused by the fact the enzymes to digest it are produced by the tips of your villi, these are damaged first and most by the disease and you end up with dairy intolerance. Some people can add it back after a few years of healing. Other allergies and intolerance issues will also develop the longer your on gluten.....it will really just shorten the list more, as damage ramps up, digestive issues arise, and your body starts confusing other foods as a culprit and developing allergies.

      Your UC complicates things and is honestly going to make you much madder then the Celiac as per its flare ups. UC common triggers are gluten, soy, dairy, and in some cases like mine it is triggered by carbs and sugars like glucose and fructose.....yeah I had to go grain free and change to a nut, seed, leafy low carb veggies and egg white diet.
      Since you can not have nuts but do not mention meats I can say your lucky. I developed a issue where I can not digest meats due to my damage. I might suggest you look into a keto/paleo diet. Where you eat meats, eggs, leafy greens. a higher fat/protein diet.

      Now after 8 months on this diet I am seeing even more improvement and had have several issues resolve and am putting on weight.
