  1. I think outside the US citric acid is often derived from wheat (since corn is pretty much an American crop), so if the food was imported there might be a problem. I keep having problems with artichoke hearts imported from Spain--but I can't find any that are packed in the US to compare them with...
  2. I have, but it's been a while. I think I still have some on hand, so I'll give it another go if I can get myself motivated. I'm in the grip of a mood swing at the moment (probably gluten-induced, although it's not entirely clear; but since I've been on mood-stabilizing medication practically all...
  3. Hi, all! I find myself repeatedly reacting to meals that contain canned beans. After I determined recently that I was also reacting to the brand of chicken broth (Imagine Foods--labeled gluten-free and No MSG/No HVP, but I still react to it every time) that I often use in the same recipes, I...
  4. I used to get infrequent vertigo attacks that I wasn't able to link to any trigger, but I haven't had one since I went gluten-free, so I think gluten must have been it. (Quite possibly an empty stomach had a lot to do with it, too; my eating habits used to be abysmal!) For me, it felt like my head...
  5. YankeeDB, I don't think LaChoy soy sauce is fermented like most other soy sauces--at least it is certainly not "aged." I believe it is mostly water and salt with a bit of soy and caramel color to make it look right (and maybe some preservatives as well; I can't remember)! I wouldn't be surprised...
  6. guppymom, I keep some canned foods in the pantry for when I have only myself to feed and I don't feel like cooking. They're not exciting, but they get the job done. For a complete meal I will eat one (7.5 oz.) can of salmon with skin and bones and NO salt added (I salt it myself), one or two...
  7. Marc, I have read that liver/gallbladder issues can seriously affect sleep quality. This might be something to look into, since anyone who has ever eaten the "standard American diet" can hardly avoid having at least some trouble in this area! I hope you can find some cause for your insomnia, so...
  8. I remember a thread about this very topic. It would be an interesting read, I'm sure; it had collected a number of replies last time I looked! I hope this helps.
  9. Mariann, excellent point! I am casein-free, but I forget to mention it anymore (can you believe that?!). That may very well be why tummy rumbling is so reliable a predictor of a gluten accident for me!
  10. Audible bowel sounds are often my first clue that I've had a gluten accident, with diarrhea following the next morning. My intestines are no longer noisy unless I've eaten gluten, though they used to gurgle pretty frequently. My stomach only growls when I'm very hungry!
  11. Jan, I know what you mean about the itching! I have used Desitin on it as well, or Vaseline, when I am desperate. Do you have gas at the same time you have the itching? I do. I think what happens for me is that I pass gas PLUS a tiny bit of fecal material, which then takes up residence on...
