Could It Be The Udi's?

Has anyone had reactions to Udi's sliced bread and/or buns???

I'm so frustrated right now. My son is 7 years old who has long suffered with allergies and frequent emotional 'meltdowns'. After an allergist was unable to identify what the issue was, we started seeing a nutritionist and biofeedback specialist who identified milk and gluten. I have long suspected that his emotional reactions were tied to something he was reacting to. So we have gone off of milk and gluten (so have I).

He has done pretty well on it but over the past few days his nose has been extremely congested and he had a horrible emotional roller coaster of a meltdown yesterday and has been irritable and defiant on other days. I try to journal everything he eats and his moods during the day. Over the past week, I notice he has eaten more Udi's bread than usual. So I'm starting to wonder if there is something with the Udi's bread he is reacting too? Maybe it's something he can only have in moderation?

I'm going to not serve him any for a few days and see if he improves. But I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced something similar?

Thanks!

I react to gluten-free breads with asthma. Udi's seems to have more xanthan gum than some products and it does give some people trouble. There is also a little residual sulfite that's used processing the starches used in gluten-free bread that can be a problem for people with allergies.

It could be. I have found that with me, very small amounts of cc can add up.

I can't eat Udi's at all...it gives me and my husband really bad D and my husband is a non-celiac. There's something about the way they make it (perhaps excess Xanathan Gum) that acts like a laxative to me and I can't deal with it.

Udi's doesn't work for me. Not sure why.

I had trouble with Udi's when I was still reacting to eggs.

I can now tolerate eggs and Udi's.

For me it's the corn.

I have been eating Udis for a couple of years with no problem whatsoever and i have the milk intolerance as well. However over the last month or so I have been extremely gassy and bloated. I decided it could be the Udis as I have it every single morning so I spent the last three days not eating the bread or bagels and my bloating went away. I also would consider corn as a huge problem. Particularly tortilla chips. I seem to now not be able to tolerate them and keep in mind that corn is in everything under different names such as high fructose corn syrup, etc..

How did your son do without udi's?

I just started my 17 month old on gluten-free and tried udi's white bread and buns but 30 mins after he had it, he has D. And for the past 3 days, he is more aggressive which is unusual for him. Just wanted to know if it helped him to avoid udi's?

I see this is an older post, but I thought I'd still chime in. My daughter and I have terrible problems with Udi's...I too think it's the corn syrup they use as a mold inhibitor. The only bread we can eat other than what I make from scratch is EnerG brown rice bread, and I can eat about one sandwich a week. My daughter eats it every day which drives me crazy but it doesn't seem to bother her.

(As far as symptoms from Udi's, my daughter has stomach issues, but my arthritis flares up and I get foggy)

    • I do have a referral to another GI at one of the top hospitals in North Carolina. I'm just waiting on the call to schedule an appointment. 
    • OK, that's good news, not the milk in the cabinet, that you've not cut gluten! Stick with it and wait for the test results. If they're positive then it will be another endoscopy, but this time with the biopsies. If negative, don't despair. Your GP may still refer you but if not you can try the gluten free diet for yourself. Keep a food diary and follow all the instructions here in the newbie thread and establish for yourself if it's the problem. If it is, don't stress overmuch about a diagnosis. I tested negative but gluten is a big problem for me and many others. The good news is the diet worked for me and it may still for you. In the meantime, try and eat as well as possible and take a good quality B vitamin and multi vitamin to try and boost those levels. Good luck!
    • No I havent cut out any gluten. I cut out stuff I knew hurt me. Like watermelon. Which sucks because I LOVE watermelon.  There are days that I cant even get words out. I can think a sentence and just cant get it out. I constantly stumble and feel drunk in my head. I'm hoping these daily shots of B12 I'm getting will start to help some.  Yesterday I put the milk in the cabinet    
    • Hello and welcome Its good that your doctor has ordered the celiac test, not sure why your GI didn't, as you say perhaps he was presupposing IBS... You mention cutting out food, you haven't tried cutting gluten yet have you? That can throw the results of any testing. You are best to stay on it for now at least, once testing is done it would be worth trying the gluten-free diet regardless of results. Dont lose heart, be persistent, get those answers and best of luck!
    • Hey Kez and a belated welcome to the forum  Sorry your post didn't get an answer, sometimes one slips through.  Re your results. The number prefixed with the H is the level of antibodies detected. The second figure should be the range beyond which the test is considered positive. Usually that's in the form of a range like this: So for the quoted test above a figure more than > 10 would be positive. I just can't tell from your post what the range is.  I suspect less than 7 was negative so you've either scored a weak or a full positive depending on the scale. Have you posted all the info that was on the test?  Here is a little more detail about what each test is looking for if you want to know the science: http://glutendoctors.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/interpreting-lab-work-gluten-sensitive.html Coeliac can certainly play havoc with your skin. In my case I found dairy was a big offender as well. Best advice I can give you is to stay eating gluten till your endoscopy. Ask your health provider if its possible to call asking for cancellations if you want an appointment sooner. But stay eating gluten so you get an accurate result. If its negative, try changing your diet regardless. 6 months without gluten and dairy may sound scary but if it cures your health issues you'll never look back. Best of luck!
