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.

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.

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)

    • Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've been gluten free for just over a year and have been pretty good about staying away from processed foods and bread substitutes. I was just really jonesing for my grandma's banana pudding. Zanthan gum, soy and corn don't bother. So Googling the other two things I ate around the same time I only came up with one tiny web hit pointing to the fig of all things but I'm doubtful. It was an article about foods high in FODMAPs (whatever those are) which included figs and prunes. It suggests they trigger gastrointestinal symptoms. Well yeah! But I eat prunes all the time so I feel like I'm just reaching. Adding this to my food log but I may take a chance and try another piece of cookie one more time in another day or so and cross my fingers before ruling them out completely. I don't believe any company is perfectly infallible even if they do have a great reputation. I'm still super sensitive and have been occasionally triggered by other products that others seem to have no problem with. 
    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
