Hello, all! I am proudly owned by two cats that have been kind enough to change their diet when I was forced to go gluten free. The problem is finding cat food that is gluten free without the company slipping in Barley Grass or Wheat Grass and acting like it is completely safe. Right now my kitties are on a combination of brands that label their food as "Grain Free", with Blue Wilderness/Buffalo being the major brand. I recently got them a bag of Red Meat Feast but my skin is getting irritated and my stomach is getting that gluteny ache. Has anyone had issues with the dry food in the last six to twelve months? The last post I found here when trying the keyword search was back in 2009, and it was dog food. The Blue company has made some changes, and the wet food has been just fine for us, however we do need some nice crunchy food that won't get me contaminated. Thank you for any suggestions. Ive been gluten-free since 2012 but things can still be challenging.
I thought I was doing a good things by getting on liquid vitamins. I thought I could trust the label that said "gluten free" from nature's plus. I thought I could email them now and ask questions but their email page mysteriously doesn't work. The international email looks like goes through to them but who knows who is going to answer that. My symptoms: Heat strain, palpitation, lethargy, pain down arms Nerve pain, numbness, tingling Cold hands and feet hot and cold flushes blue colored skin, dry ashy look dizziness, nausea, eye pressure in the left eye headaches wry neck, muscle spasms, muscle pain, ataxia like nothing I've experienced before Mood swings, depression, nightmares, daymares hay fever and pet allergies increased substantially indigestion, pain while going to the bathroom, bloating, swelling I remember having all this before I knew I was a celiac. That was way back in highschool. I was wondering where the hell all this came out of, checking all my sources and looking at everything with suspicion....then this morning after 3 months of taking the liquid vitamins by Nature'sPlus, I noticed on the bottle in fine print under "Source 70 Whole Food Complex" there it was. Barely Grass is NOT gluten free when allowed to begin to seed or to fully seed, then harvested and put into the vitamins. NOT GLUTEN FREE!!! This have put me back months in my gluten free diet and I've BEEN GLUTEN FREE FOR YEARS!!! SINCE 2004!!! Not cool people. Not cool.
Quick question about wheat grass and barley grass concentrate... Long story, short: I noticed "wheat grass concentrate" and "barley grass juice concentrate" as ingredients on a multi vitamins supplement I planned on buying (muscle pharm armor v). I reached out directly to the company and was told that this product IS GLUTEN FREE. Taking a risk, I purchased it. I have been taking the supplements for the past 5 days and haven't had any type of reaction. I'm a Celiac and I'm actually pretty sensitive to even the slightest CC. I've been living a strict gluten free lifestyle for almost 3 years now and I'm well aware of the yes/no controversy about these ingredients. I have never seen anyone with Celiac co-sign a product with wheat/barley grass, but yet I've had zero reactions after almost a full week. I'm wanting to know if anyone has: 1) Successfully used Muscle Pharm's "Armor V" with no issues 2) Successfully consumed wheat/barley grass [concentrate] The only explanation I can think of is that maybe this particular harvest of wheat/barley grass was grown the correct way that allows it to be deemed gluten-free... Or maybe that since this multi vitamin has soooo many ingredients, the amount of wheat/barley grass concentrate is so trivial that it's less than 20ppm? Really just looking for anyone with a similar experience. I said "long story, short" at the beginning of my post and now it's turned into "long story, longer." Thanks everyone!!
