Mom made all of her condiments from scratch even before she was diagnosed with celiac. My Dad had asthma and was allergic to all of the artificial coloring, flavoring, and preservatives in foods. Mom was a fabulous cook and all of my friends used to complain that THEIR Moms couldn't cook like mine.

That's awesome!

It's been 2.5 hours since I ate my mayo with tuna and I'm really queasy. Dang it. Could it be the Canola oil? Do Celiacs have problems with that? Or could I have developed an intolerance to tuna?

tuna can contain soy oil , did you check your tuna for soy?

What brand of tuna was it? Did you read the label? From what I have read, some tuna has vegetable broth in it and that broth contains soy.

I used to love tuna as a school kid. I ate it every day. When I found out that there were dolphins caught in the nets and processed right along with the tuna, I gave it up. Years later when they started having "dolphin safe" tuna, I started eating it again but only for a while. I found that I was getting queasy from it. I don't know if it was because of soy or what. I just don't bother eating it anymore.

Kirkland brand: White tuna, water, salt. Pyrophosphate added. No soy, no broth.

Do you have a problem with soy? Or just tuna?

I eat Costco's tuna all the time; in fact it's the only tuna I eat.

I DO have trouble with soy, but my reactions are usually skin related. The tuna made me sick to my stomach. But that could have been psychosomatic. Maybe I was still thinking about the dolphins.

But getting back to you - maybe it WAS the canola oil. Not that it has gluten or anything, but until you heal completely, just about anything might set you off. (Personally, I no longer like the taste of canola oil. I can actually tell if a potato chip was cooked in it by the taste.) Maybe you can try making mayo with a different kind of oil next time. I like sunflower oil the best, but everyone is different.

bartfull has a good suggestion. I won't eat canola either unless I am desperate. Why don't you try using light olive oil? It doesn't have the strong taste of regular extra virgin olive oil. Sunflower is okay but I think we all get enough omega-6.

I, too, make my own condiments and such from scratch. Using regular olive oil, as Mushroom suggests, is by far the best oil for making aioli. Believe me - I've made it countless times using different oils, methods, etc. Though I love my extra virgin olive oils, they are just too much for aioli. Regular olive oil has what is called a better "mouthfeel" in vinaigrettes and aiolis.

Canola oil would also be my very last scraping-the-barrel choice but as I have about 13 kinds of oil, that won't happen. ;)

I'll look for sunflower oil. (My sister made the same mayo with olive oil, and it did not taste good.)

Maybe I should try eating just tuna with nothing on it (ick) and see if I get sick again. But not right away...

I've never liked extra virgin olive oil. I've always heard it was the best, so I assumed it would taste better than regular. Maybe I'll look into the regular (or the light that Mushroom suggested).

Could it be the Canola oil that made me sick? Or is it more likely the tuna?

I really can't imagine either of them being a problem, per se. I just happen to not like canola oil and also the fact it is genetically modified stuff always turns me off. As I say, I eat Costco tuna all the time.

The only way to figure out if you do have a problem with either is to try them separately.

Brands vary like crazy, too. Some Greek EVOOs are soooo mild. I prefer Italian or my favourite, Croatian. Good EVOO oils should be either in tins or dark glass and say "cold pressed". I get mine from specialty stores and olive groves on our travels. But I do buy my regular olive oil from grocery stores.

I dislike canola oil for the same reasons Mushroom cites. I wonder whether it was the tuna that got you sick. Was it packed in water or oil? Either way, sorry you aren't feeling well! :(

Maybe you are reacting to the raw egg yolk. I can eat eggs only if they are baked in something. Raw eggs or even just cooked eggs make me very sick. My brother and nephew have this same problem.

My family has always made our own mayonnaise (it's common to do this in Spain and France). Super-easy. This is our recipe:

Ingredients

2 eggs (can also use 1 egg for smaller amount, but beginners should start with 2 as it will blend more easily)

1 tablespoon lemon juice (from 1/2 a lemon), or to taste

Salt

About 2 cups olive oil (use regular olive oil, NOT extra virgin, or it will taste too strong) - about 1 to 1 1/2 cups if you're using 1 egg.

Splash of red wine vinegar (optional)

Procedures

1. Place eggs, lemon juice, and salt in the bottom of an immersion blender cup.

VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the cup is clean and completely dry. Water can mess up the emulsification process. If this happens, you just get liquid instead of thick mayo. This is why so many of the commenters in the original recipe complained about getting a liquidy mess.

2. Pour oil on top. I don't measure it, but usually go just over halfway up the cup, or about 2 cups, or slightly less than halfway up the cup if using 1 egg.

COUNTER-INTUITIVE: The more oil you add, the THICKER the mayo will come out.

3. Place head of immersion blender at bottom of cup and switch it on.

4. As mayonnaise forms, slowly tilt and lift the head of the immersion blender until all oil is emulsified.

5. Season mayonnaise to taste with vinegar (just a few drops).

6. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. I can't vouch for how long it lasts - it never lasts more than a few days in my household! :)

This is the recipe I use....No eggs, no cooking..... gluten-free Mayo 1/2 Cup oil, 1/2 Cup water, 1 Tablespoon Vinegar, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan, 1 teaspoon sweet rice flour....put all in a blender and blend till it is creamy, it takes a while ....This is the basic mayo.....you can add other seasonings to make it a variety....One type I make I call Ranch...I add 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, and a pinch to thyme...it will thicken in the frig and it will keep 2 to 3 weeks in the frig....Instead of using the blender jar one of the things I do is measure all the ingredients in a pint canning jar, then I screw on my Hamilton Beach blender blades on the top of the jar, and blend it right in the pint jar...while I am blending the mayo I remove the jar and shake it a couple times to make sure everything is being blended.....by putting it in the jar I'm going to store it in I don't have to transfer it from the blender....that way I don't have to bother cleaning out the blender jar.....I don't remember where I got this recipe, but I sure have used it allot, and it makes a nice mayo....

I make my own aiolis, dressings, vinaigrettes and so on all the time (cannot recall when I even bought it last) and have never had the need to add Xanthan or guar gum. There are other ways of emulsifying without using them, such as adding some Dijon mustard in addition (or instead of) mustard powder.

I'm also allergic to soy. I buy Costco's Kirkland brand and do not have a problem with it, and use Spectrum or Hellman's/Best canola mayo. On occasion I also make my own mayo. At one time I was able to use the Polar brand tuna, purchased at Smart and Final, but haven't been near any Smart and Final stores for almost a year. If a can of tuna says vegetable oil is an ingredient, beware!

Guess the gremlins are in my computer, don't know why the post is all underlined.

    • Thank you, again, for the support and help! The suggestion of sleep and lots of water and discussion the next day seemed to help a lot. 
    • ironictruth, I think you are so early in your diagnosis that most test don't account for so early a diagnosis. see this thread started by you and GFinDC conclusion at the end of the thread not sure how to quote from multiple threads. Here is what GFinDC thought the study meant and I agree. Posted March 7 "It seems like another way to look at the positive DGP and negative biopsy is that DGP could be an early indicator of celiac disease.  Perhaps before much intestinal damage shows up." Here is another thread that talks about what is happening to you I believe with so many test's we often can't clearly make out what is happening often. see this link embedded in the the post as linked by squirmingitch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27352981 on the topic of  "Seronegative celiac disease: Shedding light on an obscure clinical entity." and might be what you are experiencing from your test results. But I want to say why while you so want it to be "Celiac" and not the "C" word I think Pellagra should be considered as a differential diagnosis. I say this and repeat it to those who will listen.  Niacinamide helped me. This article on celiac.com explains why this might be so https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html and if taking a b-complex 2 to 3 a day (and Niacinamide) for a couple months greatly alleviates many of your GI problems then you also  have had pellagra co-morbid and the doctor's don't recognize it in a clinical setting today .  . .  mainly because they don't know to look for it any more today. I wrote about how to take niacinamide in my blog post about this topic so I wouldn't have to retype it several times. I want to quote from the discussions section the heart of most good research from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition research article linked in my posterboy blog thread about how to take niacinamide and why you would want too Faq. poster here again for those who want to do the deep research from their discussion section. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/85/1/218.full "Random spot urine sampling, together with the measurement of 1-MN and 2-PYR concentrations, has been suggested as an alternative because it avoids these issues and would provide a guide to status (22). However, the ratio of these metabolites has been shown to vary according to the time after the last meal because they are sequential intermediates on the same catabolic pathway (21). This makes the ratio an intrinsically unstable variable for use in population surveys; in the present study we chose to use cutoffs previously established for the excretion of individual metabolites expressed relative to creatinine. The subjects whose excretion fell below the established cutoffs for either metabolite were considered to be deficient." A little technical but essentially we soo need b-vitamins that even if you have a test for low vitamin b-3 the amount of the b-3 in your meal (f you have not fasted before the test) can cause us to test in a low normal range thus making taking of the b-vitamin a self test of cause and effect. Did you get better after taking Niacinamide then if taking Niacinamide helped your GI problems you were low in Niacinamide. This is typically a 24 hour test and most people don't fast 24 hours before going to the doctor and will often fail this test since our body has absorbed enough from our food to help us pass the thresh hold set at the minimum level. Here is why it is good to take a b-complex with Niacin/niacinamide because it interacts with other nutrients. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3804611/ including b-6 which is one of the metabolites measured to determine a pellagra diagnosis. see this mdguidelines link that summarizes this well. http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra where they say  quoting there treatment section "Treatment consists of high oral doses of niacinamide, a form of niacin. Usually, supplements of other B-vitamins are also given because many individuals with pellagra also have low levels of B1, B2, B6, and pantothenic acid." and possibly Zinc if the other research is correct. ***** this is not medical advice just my research on the topic and experience with taking Niacinamide to treat many of my GI problems. Prousky wrote about this 15+ years ago and still people are not aware of this fact that Niacinamide treats digestive problems. http://www.yourhealthbase.com/database/niacin-treats-digestive-problems.htm and if they are are aware of it are they are slow to accept that a vitamin could help with their GI problems. the gluten free works site also has a great article on this topic. http://glutenfreeworks.com/blog/2010/06/23/niacin-vitamin-b3-deficiency-in-celiac-disease/ while it is recognized that celiac's have many of these deficiency it is not well accepted/understood today low Niacinamide alone can treat many GI problems though the research is 15+ years old .  . . still people suffer. I don't want you to have pellagra or celiac but I want you to be aware there is a another valid differential diagnosis that can make sense for many people seeking to be diagnosed as a celaic disease patient. because people with pellagra often get better very quickly it is worth a try or least some of your time to research it some more. ***again this not medical advice.  Please check with your doctor about this possibility but don't be surprised if he doesn't know much about pellagra and probably less than he does about celiac disease. Dr. Heaney talks about why this is today on his blog about the 4 D's of Pellagra and why doctor's don't recognize it today in a clinical setting. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • You should probably have your doctor run a full blood panel for celiac if you want to be tested right, followed by a endoscope and biopsy. The blood test can give false negatives, and you have to be eating gluten for at least 12 weeks daily for the test. On the ferritin levels, mine was consistently 1-3 on every test even with 2x the normal dose of iron. I found I had to take it with vitamins C supplements to boost it a bit along with managing a few other nutrients that work in combination with it. Seems mine is in part due to constant intestinal inflammation caused by my UC and bleeding ulcers.
    • Hi, I am looking for a functional medicine doctor in the Chicago area?  Any recommendations?  I have never been to one.  I have celiac disease and ulcerative colitis.  What should I expect from a functional medicine doctor?
    • Omg just saw this again, but on Facebook. Wow there are 596 comments on it, most of which are completely crazy. I almost forgot that most people know nothing about celiac disease., yet they pretend they do and shame us.
