My family USED to eat a lot of rice pilaf. Ever since I went gluten free I have only made it a few times for just them to eat. When I looked it up online to see if they have other types of rice that does not contain gluten it showed the spanish rice has NO gluten so we bought a few boxes and I made some last night with dinner. It was great.. until later that night I was in sooo much stomach pain and sweating really bad! I didn't eat anything else that day that I was not already sure was safe since I knew I was going to make that rice and I wanted to make sure I was ok with it. Has any one else had this problem? I just got to thinking that maybe it was cross contaminated because that company makes so many other types of rice products that DO contain gluten. There is no warning on the box saying anything about how its processed in the facility and it doesn't say "gluten free" It just says in the allergy section that it does not contain gluten ingredients..

Any input i'd appreciate.. Thanks!

Companies who list their products as containing no gluten or free gluten have no obligation to verify for no gluten. In the US, there is no legal criterial for labeling a product gluten free. All labeling is voluntary at this time.

In this case, it might be best to contact the company and inquire about shared equipment or shared facility. I also would like to add that if you are new to the diet, many foods can be troublesome, until some healing can take place.

Thanks Lisa - I just found my mistake.. I was also looking up carolina rice on the same day that I looked up Near East and was picturing that website when I was remembering that the spanish rice was gluten free... (dumb!!) but I just went to the FAQ section on Near East and read "While Near East is proud to offer a variety of grain dishes to suit many needs and tastes, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are gluten free. Because our products are processed in facilities alongside other ingredients that contain gluten, there is always a slight risk of cross contact"

So lesson learned.. I must be very sensitive. I will just stay away!!

It's very easy to do rice from scratch. When I make Spanish rice I toast the rice in a little olive oil until it's lightly browned. You can use white or brown rice for this but brown will take longer to cook. From there, the most simple way to do this is to sub in some form of tomato product for part of the water. You can use salsa, tomato sauce (we like the seasoned Rotel), canned tomatoes or even a dab of tomato paste. Add chili powder if you want it spicier. You can also add a variety of vegetables. I usually add red and green peppers and lots of onion to help lower the carb count of the overall dish. I have diabetes so have to watch the carbs. But peas, corn and carrots work well in here too. If you are using raw veggies, you should add them at the start. But if you are using cooked ones, then stir them through at the end so that they don't get overcooked. You can also add any kind of cooked, dried beans. And if you want this as a main dish then add cooked ground meat or chopped cooked chicken. I use a cup of rice to two cups of liquid unless the package says otherwise. Recently I bought a huge bag of Basmati brown rice from Costco. It requires a little more handling but it's worth it to me because of the cheap price. You have to rinse it well and let it soak for a while. White rice usually takes 20 minutes to cook and brown rice takes anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes.

    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!  
    • I am sorry too.  I did not mean to imply that you have a sugar issue (though it may contribute to our obesity problem, but that is another debate).  I do not think that is the cause of your symptoms.  I brought it up because the American Academy of Pediatrics just issued this on juice for infants, toddlers and adolescents: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/05/18/peds.2017-0967 We all have unique intolerances.  My kid can not drink orange juice beyond a 1/2 cup.  That is about the equivalent of two oranges.  Too much juice and she gets an allergic reaction -- itchy hives all over her body.  Yet, she can eat two oranges in her lunch everyday -- just not a full cup of orange juice, processed or fresh.   Me?  I tolerate it just fine, if only I could tolerate garlic!!!!!! i hope you feel better soon.
