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.

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
