Good Morning All-

About a week ago I was able to add almonds back to my limited list of safe foods. I find almond butter quite expensive, so I purchased a four pound bag to make my own. It was really easy to make, unfortunately I had a gluten-like reaction within the first hour. My initial symptoms to gluten ingestion are bloating, suddenly tired and very grumpy - followed by two or more days of other fun symptoms.

I email the company that processed the almonds and was thankful to get a response that confirmed my suspicions - as many small companies do not respond leaving lingering suspicion. I asked them to consider adding a shared facility statement to their products and am posting their email here so that the next person to research Spicy World products will find info. Please note this company is Spicy World, not Spice World.

Is there any gluten used in the same facility that your whole almonds are packaged?

Thank You!"

PS...for those of you that are thinking it...I've already kicked myself for not sending this email before I purchased and ate these almonds. This isn't the first time I've gotten burned trying to save money. More caution will be used next time - well maybe ;)

So sorry, honey. :(

FWIW, I have called a company and asked BEFORE eating their products and they assured me it was safe (wheat is not processed in the same facility --but could not guarantee what the source for all materials was---and if they did share lines, they run the gluten-free ones first on Monday and clean them thoroughly)

Now, I did not stop to think...okay, but then, they are going to run the other products all week long, clean the lines and then run more gluten-free products the next Monday.... :rolleyes:

DOH!

Yes, it bit me on the butt and was sick as a dog for 2 weeks (thus earning me the sensitive label from my doc), so don't beat yourself up over this one.

I always recommend nuts.com (no, I am not a paid spokesperson and not affiliated with them because if I were, I'd have them lower those dang shipping costs!!)

But they are my go-to company for certified gluten-free nuts, gluten-free flours, dried fruits, etc. and I love the quality. I have received an order in 24 hours, no kidding.

I have never had a reaction.

Hope you're feeling better. ;)

Thanks IH :)

Not beating myself - I give a quick kick and move along - had plenty of "dohs" - certainly enough to know this won't be my last ;)

My grumpy and froggy symptoms are much better this morning - digestive and body aches and pains will last a bit longer, but I know they'll improve.

Glad to hear your frogginess is hopping off.

Great news about getting almonds back.

I can eat them, but my son is anaphylactic allergic, so I can only have them away from home on my own. Roll on my November nut fest.

I can't tell you what a joy trying to to gluten free nut free is in the uk (not!!!)

Thanks Mindwarp :)

Living with multiple allergies/intolerances sure does make life interesting. Anaphylaxis makes it plain scary - had my first such reaction last year - boy I thought I had it tough before - not!!! Sure hope your son is able to stay safe every day.

    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
    • Do EoE and celiac disease generally come in tandem?  Does having one necessarily mean having the other? Had an EGD today expecting to have an entirely different outcome.  A short history: Lap Band placed 10 yrs ago with a weight loss of 173-ish lbs. Am a 47 y/o F experiencing uncontrolled vomiting, several times a day, and abnormal, unwanted continued weight loss. Too thin IMO, at 133. Experience random and lengthy bouts of burning (scalding,  really)  mouth syndrome (which I believe is a diagnosis recognized only by those experiencing it, and has not an official diagnosis of anything... yet). At the urging of my children and my parents alike, all of whom see me wasting away before their very eyes, and concerned for my well-being (if not my life),  I began looking for answers. Assuming my answer would sound something like this... "let's remove your lap band immediately". Problem solved.  Not so.  Lap and in perfect condition and placement, and not the cause of any restriction whatsoever, as all fluid was removed 3 yrs ago. Food from over 12 hours previously ingested was still hanging out in the lower portion of my esophagus.  Dr. susoects a high concentration of eosinophils and EoE and/or celiac disease is also suspected.  4 samples have been sent for biopsy.  I knew nothing of either of these two diseases until 2 hours ago, and I am, at best, confused.  Lots of info to digest. Should I begin eliminating wheat, dairy, eggs... Etc. prior to biopsy results? Or wait for Dr. orders? History of Grave's (mom), and Hashimoto's (sister). I've had asthma and chronic bronchitis and pneumonia since childhood. Any  and all info/help/suggestions are more than welcome. Also, feel free to let me know if I'm way off base and prematurely/overly concerned.  I'd be ok with that too, as I tend to overthink things.    Thanks! 
    • Thanks desirun. I have takenhim off gluten and he has improved out of sight. Only times he hasbeen sick since was when he ate something with gluten. His 14 yr old brother has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and now coeliac screen has come back positive for him as well. Ttg was 745. normal is anything under 20.  Waiting on gene test for him before scheduling biopsy. Makes it more likely that my younger son does have coeliac now I think. Will also be getting my daughter tested asap.
