Cross Contamination

Am really confused about the extent of this. I live with a non Celiac, we share the same washing up water, washing up cloths, drying cloths etc. Is it possible that cross conatamination occurs this way?

I wash my clothes with my gluten eating husband's clothes and have no problem. I would think twice about this if he worked on any sort of farm, or around any type of flour (I'm super paranoid) but I have seen others who say that with issues such as these or with extreme sensitivities and outdoor animals they simply shed their work clothes in the mud room.

When you say washing up water, do you mean for your dishes? Yes, that could be a problem. The biggest part of this being, so much more than that, using the same rag or sponge. If you've just put a plate covered in bread crumbs or something similar in the dishwater, then put in a gluten free cutting board, it stands to reason that the cutting board could be irrevocably contaminated. On the other hand, if you simply wash up the things like the gluten free utensils and cutting boards and whatever is subject to that sort of permanent contamination first, you could then reasonably carry on as long as you are washing and rinsing well.

Cross contamination is very serious and is one of the biggest threats to our health. This link http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/cookingglutenfree/a/crosscontaminat.htm can be found in the newbie thread with a lot of other useful information. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ It may be helpful to take the time to check out both, but especially the first as it pertains particularly to cross contamination.

    • Unless the fried chicken says it's gluten-free and you know they fried it in oil that's only had gluten-free foods in it, you can rest assured your fried chicken had gluten. welcome to the board!
    •       Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC 58 mins ·  Urgent product alert: Mama Mary's Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts. Labeled gluten-free with the GFCO logo. Ingredients list includes wheat flour as the first ingredient. GFCO has been contacted and is on top of the situation. They are checking to see if this is a packaging error (meaning the wrong back packaging--ingredients list--was attached to the gluten-free pizza crust).

    • That reminds me of the time I was in rural California and someone asked me if I was German   They're speaking the beautiful South Western Ireland version of English. If you ever get the chance you should go there. It's one of the most beautiful parts of the world and the people are lovely. Albeit they maintain a sadistic pleasure in spinning tall tales to confuse hapless English visitors to their pubs... 
    • I think that's the answer. You can see plenty of others experiencing the same: My own experience is that my neuro symptoms took longer to go. The exception to this would be brain fog which happily lifted pretty quickly. I get occasional POTS on standing or a kind of sensation from in my head sometimes which is really difficult to describe which I think may relate to cross contamination but I don't neccesarily get any GI. I think its those symptoms which are maybe last to go, first to show...
    • There are some nutritional issues to watch out for in a vegan diet.  Personally I don't think it's great idea when the person has a chronic digestive disease that is responsible for causing mal-absorption of nutrients.  Vegan in a celiac seems kind of like pouring gas on a fire.  The vegan diet makes getting some important nutrients harder, and celiac disease does the same thing.  I don't know of any studies on it, but my guess is a vegan celiac may take longer to recover their health.  And since it can take 5 years or more to recover from celiac damage, it seems to me that is not a good thing. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/vegetarian-diet/art-20046446?pg=2
