Does Goat Chevre Have Gluten?

I ate some in the salad bought from Trader Joe's, and got symptoms again which I didn't have since I ate gluten free. Although I have to admit, that I also ate Trader Joe's vegetable chips, which are made in the same facility as wheat, but I really love them, and I hope, that my sensitivity is not that bad :rolleyes:

Anyway, the reason I suspect chevre is because I suspect it made me sick before a few times too. And it makes me feel bad for two days or so.

I've been limited to goat cheeses only for years & can't recall a chevre w/ gluten. When I get chevre, it's usually at Trader Joe's, but that's its own pkg, not in a salad.

Could goat casein itself be the problem? Or anything else besides the chips? Maybe a suspect in the dressing?

The Detective Game can be such a pain. Hope you get it figured out.

Unless that salad discloses its facility - meaning you can see if wheat/gluten is processed there - I wouldn't have risked the salad. That's just my personal pov. I have a "thing" about salads....my personal neuroses. They skeeve me out unless they have a dedicated gluten-free line.

That said, I eat goat cheese all the time, and from TJ's - no problem.

If you've noticed a problem with goat cheese on more than one occasion, I concur with the above. A problem with casein or goat cheese???

Any problems with cow's milk/cheese? Just wondering if you have a casein issue. The last couple of times that you have had the goat cheese, have you had it prepared the same way (like always in a salad . . . hence, tom's question of a suspect dressing?)

Was this a salad you made yourself and added cheese or was it a purchased (already-prepared) salad?

Since you've been gluten free, have you had the veggie chips?

Thank you so much for your thoughts. Trader Joe's had a salad to try there, and then I bought ingredients and made some at home too.Hmm, maybe I do react to goat's milk...As far as cow's dairy goes, I eat little of it - if I happen to eat more cheese, it doesn't feel that good, so I generally avoid it, although I eat butter. My dad is actually allergic to cow's milk from the store, but the funny thing is he can have some fresh raw milk from the country without any ill effects.

My salad dressing at home is always the same - apple cider vinegar, Bragg's aminos and olive oil, but I am not sure what they used in the store tasting version.

I guess, I will try after a few days just a bit of chevre again and see.

You tried a sample at the store? There's your problem, most likely. Who knows how they made that salad. Did they rinse some of the veggies in the same colander they just made some noodles for another sample? Were there some croutons in it that may have been eaten or hidden before you saw it? What if they used malt cinegar in thier salad dressing? You get the idea.

You could also have a problem with dairy.

Watch the shared facility with wheat and see if you react to other products with that label. I do. It limits a lot of things but my life is better now...and goat cheese chevre is a favorite and no gluten reaction....but give me a shared facility and I will give you all kinds of ugly symptoms. I vote you are reacting to shared facility stuff...and you can easily figure that out by eating a couple more things in a shared facility and see if you react.

Yes, I guess I should get used to, that I can't try anything like that in the store anymore.

To tell you the truth I still don't feel very well, but much better now, so I probably won't try it anytime soon. But when I do, I will try chevre first since it is less likely to be the culprit. I hoped that I wouldn't be that sensitive, but I guess that won't be the case...

Thank you all. I tried some chevre recently again, and felt totally fine after, so i have to conclude, that it was the veggie chips, that were made in the same facility as wheat stuff, which means, that eating will be much harder for me than I expected. :(

I don't miss gluten at all suprisingly, but I do miss the convenience, when I am not at home.

I wouldn't say all "made in the same facility" foods are equal. I know I eat foods processed onthe same equipment (because it's so common and I only screen out the obvious) - but don't react to all of them.

So, I'd venture to say THOSE chips are out. Other foods from other manufacturers MAY be ok.

Or not.

Do what makes you feel safe and well.

    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊  
    • Go to the coping section & pinned at the top is the Newbie 101 which will tell you how to prevent cc. Sorry, that's all I have for tonight as it's been a long, long day for me & I am more than ready to turn in. I'll respond further tomorrow. I'm sooooooooo glad to hear you finally have an answer!!!!!
