:) looking forward to hearing about the can lining.

...as another data point, I can't do anything with canola oil

...we LOVE tuna with avocado mash

...I also use soy-free vegenaise (from Whole Foods) and like it

Good luck!

If there is a corn sensitivity, it could be getting you in many ways. Fish are caught and put in a vat of corn based citric acid/water for the trip to land. Many 'tuna in water' really isn't 'water' but vegetable broth. Vegetable either being corn or soy. Then there is the can lining, as mentioned. But I would guess your mayo has corn also.

I personally have found that since going gluten-free I can eat some things that used to kill my gut. Like citrus no longer bothers me. But then there are things I seemed ok with before gluten-free (and CF) that I can no longer tolerate. My best advice is listen to your body. If it says DON'T, then don't try to force it to say YES.

Hi Kiki!

Not sure if I already posted this....I also cannot do canned tuna -- even packed in water -- due to intolerance to histamine containing and inducing foods.

How often do you have canned tuna?

Do you like other fish? Maybe try salmon or something else instead and see if you're ok. Tuna shouldn't be eaten very often because of the mercury levels. I only eat it on occasion (usually as good sushi) for that reason, and the overfishing, etc.

Also, unless you've contacted the company and asked, you don't know if the lining is BPA free or not. another reason to avoid canned anything unless you know it's BPA free.

So, try some different fish, but it's always better to get it fresh (though you can get canned wild-caught salmon).

Good luck!

I made my own mayo without soy, and used it today with tuna. I'm super queasy. Could it be the tuna? Or the Canola oil?

I don't think I have a problem corn. I eat chicken tacos on corn tortillas without a problem...

Have you considered that it might be the actual can?  I have a severe nickel allergy as well as other things and nickel from the can leaches out into the food and causes severe stomach upset, a bit like being "Glutened" but more painful, the first time it happened was with canned salmon, I thought I had food poisening but Hubby had some and he was fine..I am also intolerant of some jewellery, so if you are too it might be something to consider...First post!!!

It could be a histamine problem, tuna converts histidine to histamine if it's not fresh from the ocean, if you're sensitive as me that might be it

 

 

Hi Kiki!

Not sure if I already posted this....I also cannot do canned tuna -- even packed in water -- due to intolerance to histamine containing and inducing foods.

 

 

 

I have to echo these two. I also have a histamine intolerance (HIT) and canned fish and shellfish will cause symptoms. Fresh caught fish is

okay as it is lower in histamine..

 

In discussion with my GI doc last week, it can resolve in time after avoiding high histamine foods for several weeks, knocking down the level of histamine in your body and then trying small amounts to test your tolerance level. 

 

HIT occurs when the gut is impaired and the enzyme that regulates histamine (DAO) is not being produced.

In severe cases it can take some time -- I gave up histamines in late November -- still can't tolerate any histamine containing or histamine inducing foods.

 

I can however tolerate moderate exercise in a bit warmer temps than ever before :)

:) Good point, Ski. I suspect it will take me months (Doc said give it 6 months) but the "average" person may be able to tolerate low levels

in 4 weeks (or so the  HIT lit says). Like anything else with celiac disease, this could be an  individual thing.

Some tunas have broth in them and sometimes broths contain gluten in the form of barley or wheat. So you have to be careful not to get the ones that have broth in them because the indregients just say broth.

If there is wheat in a broth, the label must list WHEAT as an ingredient. I have never seen barley listed on a tuna can, but I suppose there

is always a first.

    • I've had them about six or seven times at several different Starbucks locations.  My sister has, also.  Neither one of us have had any signs of getting glutened. They are served in a parchment paper bag that should be handed to you straight from the oven sealed.  I've heard many internet complaints about the bags being dusty, too many ingredients, unhealthy, etc., but honestly, they are pretty darned tasty! And, when you are traveling and hungry, they are even tastier.  They sell out quickly at most Starbucks, but I've been able to purchase one as late at 6 p.m.  
    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
