Chicken Feed?
0

16 posts in this topic

I recently determined through an elimination diet that I am sensitive to chicken (especially dark meat) and eggs. I started wondering what was in chicken feed and found that many contain wheat, barley and/or rye. So far I haven't found a source that doesn't use a feed like that. I would think that the molecule would be altered in the digestive tract of the chicken. On the other hand, it doesn't get digested in OUR digestive tracts, so maybe? Anyone else have a problem with chicken and eggs? Or has anyone ever heard of this being addressed in research?

It is generally accepted fact that meat is gluten-free regardless of what the animal ate. There a few who dispute this, but no science to back them up. The same applies to eggs.

Thank you, Peter.

Most likely you are simply sensitive to chicken. Eggs are a common allergen/food sensitivity too.

I eat only cage free eggs. After 6 months gluten free I've finally figured out that these particular eggs need to be washed off. After a couple of times of unexplained gluten symptoms after eating only eggs I realized they had washable "stuff" on the shell of the eggs. Oh well. Once again with this disease. Live and learn. The hard way.

I was talking to a local baker one time about eggs. He told me that he noticed his bread had a "fishy" smell to it. He was using regular supermarket eggs and he said the chickens were fed some sort of fish meal (this is in Japan). He switched eggs. The new eggs come from chickens that eat what chickens should eat and now the smell is gone, he said. I have no idea about gluten, but in his case it seems something was getting from the feed to the egg.

I have had a gluten-like reaction with chicken, but not all chicken. I have been told that any liquid that is injected into chicken would be broth containing gluten. So try some expensive fresh organic chicken. The cheep frozen chicken is likely to be injected with broth.

by whom?????? please post this validated information, thanks! These kinds of statements need scientific or clinical evidence ---so our members with celiac disease get up-to-date validated information.

Incorrect. Please stop spreading false rumors about gluten. It's very harmful and confusing to other people on the board. Most plumping solution is saltwater or sodium phosphate. Rarely it's broth, and even more rarely the broth contains gluten.

USDA rules require that any grain added to meat be declared on the label. FDA rules require that packaged food products disclose wheat using the word "wheat."

Broth typically is grain-free, and thus gluten-free. If you know of a specific example where these rules are not followed, please share it with us. PLEASE also tell the USDA or FDA of the violation.

Absolutely, positively, without question 100 percent false.

Thanks for clearing that up.

My son and I also react to chicken eggs - although I have had

a difficult time trying to find scientific evidence to prove

it. What I suspect is : the grain feed is processed and

becomes tocopherol - a chemical component of the eggs. (aka vitE)

I have been on a mission to get my own backyard chickens and

do my own experiment. (Still have to get the hens through a

bylaw amendment:)

Just cruising the Failsafe diet again this morning, reading about salicylate/glutamate/amine/histamine intolerance. I know MSG makes me crazy. Could it be that the purported "gluten" injected in poultry is actually MSG? Broth is so often laced with MSG that I always avoid it.

Nope. Plumping solution is usually just sodium phosphate. Chicken skin is a bad thing to eat if you have amine intolerance though.

I react to extremely trace amounts of gluten and don't react to eggs. I tried Eggland's Best brand, which is fed a high soy feed and reacted to the soy. Soy came through to the egg.

I wish I could have chickens here. It would be nice to be able to control what they're fed.

The man that does my lawn has chickens and says they eat all sorts of kitchen scraps, like vegetable peelings, etc.

His know that when he lifts the landscape rocks there's likely to be a worm or bug there and rush over to see what they can get. He says they're lots of fun. I hope it works out so you can get some. :D

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
