Better N Peanut Butter- Really Gluten Free?

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried this brand? Just got it at my local Wegmans - was labeled gluten free. I made a sandwich (with gluten-free bread) and had peanuts and glutino pretzels...all of these things I've had before with no reaction...but right after eating, I had a reaction...my first in a week or so :(

So now I'm confused, is it really gluten free or is it the soy that they say it contains? I am really confused...

After a week you will be having "reactions" to all sorts of things. Your body is still sorting things out. Before you jump on the train to other intolerances, you should probably be avoiding things with that many ingredients and sticking to whole foods. Such as actual peanut butter. Not everything you buy has to say gluten free on it, many things are naturally gluten free and there simply is no need to say so on a label. I have to say, after seeing the ingredients on that stuff, you would be hard pressed to find someone around here who would eat it. It seems to be for people who are more obsessed with how many calories are in their food then it actually being healthy.

Well, I have been eating gluten free for about three weeks now, give or take, but you are right. I just figured after a week or so of no reactions I was doing pretty well.

I am only trying to be careful with peanut butter specifically after reading that store brand peanuts are processed in places that contain wheat, while Planters are fine...so I figured it may be best to stick to specifically labeled peanut butter.

And you got me in terms of the calorie loss thing. I have weight issues (mostly in my own mind, I admit), but I do look for the low cal stuff when I would be better suited to more whole foods. Guess its back to my almond butter...

Less calories doesn't equal healthy. I shudder at that stuff you bought. Justin's is good imo, pricey but really really good. They have a full range of butters to choose from, and if you stick to an actual serving size (lol) it is full of healthy benefits that outweigh calorie sink. Besides, we NEED fat in our diets to stay healthy, and nuts are full of healthy fats. I'm just being able to get a little bit of nuts back in my diet (YAY!!) and love it because of how healthy they are, whole or butter. I carry my cell phone with me to the store and call manufacturers before I buy, or check websites before purchasing.

I have a host of food issues, but they are all related to additional medical problems. So far, other than one incident I can't pinpoint an ingredient on, I have no additional intolerances. It is way too soon (imo) for you to borrow trouble. Keep a food diary though, you may see patterns that you wouldn't otherwise notice.

Well part of my problem food intolerance wise is that I don't always know whether a reaction is related to gluten intolerance or if its related to my food intolerance due to my absent gall bladder. It's why I don't eat any fried foods or fast foods if I can avoid it...because certain oils irritate my stomach. Which may be a culprit here too...defatted peanut oil doesn't exactly sound like a well digested oil!

I actually just started adding nuts back in my diet in an effort to cut back on carbs in order to get my blood sugar under better control...and now I am eating nuts everyday, so I do get a good bit of healthy fat in my diet. I added this to my food diary in terms of ingredients so hopefully I can nail down whether this is an actual intolerance or just my borrowing trouble, as you very aptly put it!

    • D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.
    • I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad.  I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought.  There are a lot of foods I can eat.  When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad.  At home, whatever I prepare is gluten free.  A friend of mine who had breast cancer a few years back, contracted Parkinson's last year and the. Found out her cancer is back.  It really put this in perspective for me.  I don't have to take pills and deal with side effects, I don't have cancer.  I have to watch my food intake.  I can do it.
    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
