Plain grits would be gluten-free--they are just ground corn. Sometimes things are added, but even then I doubt that anything gluten-derived would be present.

I have to say, I'm from the south. Read the label carefully. A number of the national grits brands on our shelves down here have the disclaimer in fine print - contains wheat. Hate when I see that. Why is it necessary to prostitute a great thing like grits with the evil wheat???

Anyway, good grits are made from corn, and that should be the only ingredient.

I buy Quaker grits. The ingredients are:

"white hominy grits made from corn, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid."

That's it. And apparently those ingredients after corn are all B vitamins, except for the iron obviously.

Very yummy. With butter. With cheese. With eggs and sausage. yummmmmmmmmmm (and I'm a northern gal by birth...but I have been living in Virginia for awhile now. lol)

    • I looked at your past posts, but I’m not sure i know what you were eating then and what you’ve stopped eating now. Also what sort of medical workups you’ve had and what were the results. I understand your biopsy was negative - but I also saw on one post that you were worried they only took one biopsy. Do you have the analyst’s result report there with you? Does it say how many were taken? It’s hard for me to hazard any kind of a guess without a little bit more information, including any medications you are taking. I’m sorry you are feeling so awful. What symptoms are you having? Plumbago
    • I've posted a few different topics, so I thought I would just update in one post. I am seeing my GP later today, but apparently my biopsy results were negative. I have no further information on this. What I do know, is that I have been feeling much worse since giving up gluten after my gluten challenge. Half the days I have barely left the couch. I am so confused and upset. They had warned me this may not give me answers...I'm barely eating anything, I feel so sick. I feel like I felt better eating bread, so maybe that's how I'm supposed to be eating? At this point I just need to eat more than a banana, which is all I can stomach today.
    • It doesn't change DH, but it always makes me smile thinking someone means Dear Husband instead of the rash.
    • It's done this since I started on here, many years ago.  Kind of funny when people type g f meaning girlfriend...... 😄
    • First were you tested for celiac? IS this rash DH? In case of a DH rash they have to take a biopsy from a clear spot next to one of the lesions. Those with DH sometimes do not show up on other celiac test,

      Other thoughts what about your shampoo? Body wash? Did you have any recent work done in the house with plaster or drywall? Is this a allergic reactions or directly linked to celiac? Your concerns about diabetic friendly gluten-free options confuse me. I am ketogenic gluten free. Meaning I do not eat carbs, or sugar. It is quite easy, while many gluten free processed foods do are really high in starches, there are plenty that are low carb and diabetic friendly. Miracle Noodles makes, noodles, rice, pasta, ready to eat meals all gluten free and low-zero carb. Julian Bakery makes a low carb, gluten free bread. Califlour makes low carb pizza crust, and I know of several companies other then my bakery that makes low carb ketogenic muffins, cookies, and cakes that are diabetic safe.
