Feeling Glutened After Ice Cream Cone
0

6 posts in this topic

I keep a very detailed food log.. the only new thing I've introduced is Goldbaum's ice cream cones. After the first one I ate, I woke up at night from my stomach gurgling and couldn't go into work the next day I felt so ill.

Well here I am at 2 in the morning with horrible gas and stomach pain, after another cone. Say it ain't so.

I can't find a single bad review on these cones. Am I off the mark and it's the ice cream? (Perry's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, labeled gluten-free).

Goldbaum's is a dedicated facility, from what I have read, and I have indulged myself with one of their cones recently with coconut ice cream and felt no ill effects. And I am a "quick responder".

I have no idea if you can tolerate dairy, chocolate or peanuts, but a mix of ice cream flavors makes it really difficult to pinpoint what is making you feel ill.

Is there a big black G F in the circle on the Perry's, or just the words "gluten free" on the package? Are the various ice cream flavors run on shared lines?

Next time, try a plain flavor and no cone and see what happens.

More importantly, if you are newly diagnosed, anything could be giving you grief still. It takes a long time to heal.

Stick to a whole foods diet and no dairy for a few weeks and see if you feel better. Dairy gives those same symptoms you describe in a gut that is still healing. It cannot tolerate the lactose just yet maybe.

Just some thoughts!

I just looked those up and they look delicious.

Even among super sensitives, sensitivity levels vary, so just because someone else can eat it doesn't mean that you can, unfortunately. I think that it can be difficult for dedicated facilities to get super pure starting food materials due to farming practices which can include crop rotation and shared equipment and facilities. I buy grains, seeds, and beans whole and sort and wash them before eating. I have found what looked like gluten grains in many places where they should not be.

Although you did post in the super sensitive section, I will add that I am sensitive to very low levels of gluten.

I hope you feel better soon.

I called Perry's ice cream and they assured me they sanitize the facilities every 24 hours and the gluten-free flavors wouldn't be contaminated by non-gluten-free ones.

I've been gluten-free for 11 months. Prior to healing I couldn't tolerate dairy, but for months I've been eating it without any issues. Peanut butter is fine. I'm not positive about chocolate and will keep an eye on it.

Dilettantesteph-- the cones are absolutely delicious. I've been looking for cones since my diagnosis and was thrilled when I found 12 for $3.50 at the grocery store. I am really hoping they aren't the culprit.

I'll be totally honest, a teeny, selfish part of me is hoping it's your ice cream. :unsure: I just bought a package of these cones today for my son to try, so I really don't want it to be them! I think I'll be calling them up to double check on processing.

I don't know anything about the ice cream company's facility. But there's a question that might be good to ask them: do they test for gluten cc for their gluten free products? Many companies in the USA do not, and if they don't test, and they don't have a gluten free facility, then there can be a slight risk of gluten cc.

Many companies have gluten free facilities instead of processing their gluten products with their gluten free ones. I imagine that this is because it eliminates some of that risk.

Along with a sensitivity to wheat gluten, celiacs are often sensitive to other things such as annatto, a natural yellow food coloring that is often used in ice cream and yellow cheese, (Johnsonville Brats also contain annatto as a coloring agent, and I can't keep them down for 5 minutes!). Tartrazine, (FD&C Yellow #5) is another one that affects me, but it's made from coal-tar along with all the other AZO food colorings! Who would want to eat that, anyway? Unfortunately, it's very commonly used in foods, candy, medicines and vitamin pills.

Ask your doctor when it's a good idea to ingest petroleum distillates, and he'll tell you, "NEVER!". Then, ask him why they put it in the medicines he expects you to take....

    • Hello again i heard somewhere that if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease after all the tests have been done you are entitled to a prescription of food containing gluten free food. I am in the uk but i thought this had been recently discontinued? Anyone help.
    • Hello thankyou its always great to know that other people are going through things the same time. Yes my endoscopy is friday coming at 8.15am, been through the procedure before for diagnosing a hernia so that side of things are ok, just not sure if i needed the biopsy at first being the blood test confirmed  positive but i know now that i do need it not just for me but also for my 11 year old daughter who could also be celiac later and it would be better for her to know 100% mum is celiac.
    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Hey all so ever since about a week ago I felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant, followed by a minor hotflash and it hurts to press on my right side. I'm extremely worried because I was admitted to the ER last night, blood came back fine, xray fine and ultrasound fine. What prompted me to enter the ER was the fact that now my breathing is affected..   SYMPTOMS SO FAR: Sharp Pain Touching My Right Side Minor weakness , no fever. Mucus in stools? (when i wipe its a yellow on the toilet paper sorry for tmi) Right shoulder soreness Mucus in jugular? Or lung!? The "pipe" you can feel on your neck going up to your head, somewhat warm to the touch. Aches to touch. Happens mostly at night. Began last night and returned tonight. Unusually smelly breath. Awful Constipation, when I CAN go barely anything comes out as its flaky. Slight Pain in right leg, comes and goes. Very active stomach, gurgling can be heard from as high up as my chest. Slight stomach pain relief when massaging. I'm very worried people I'm petrified of surgery and I don't want to die.. But I don't understand why everything would come clean if im experiecing these symptoms?   Anyways
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
