Hey guys, was just wondering why oats, which are naturally gluten free, undergo gluten cross-contamination while other gluten free grains, such as rice, buckwheat, or quinoa, do not? Even when gluten free oats are grown isolated from other grains and processed in gluten-free facilities, they still test at a gluten concentration of about 10 PPM, which may make some celiacs sick. However there are rices/buckwheat/quinoa that even the most hardcore celiacs can eat without a problem. Why do the latter grains not undergo gluten cross-contamination? Thanks.
I am diagnosed Celiac and am really new to the gluten-free diet. I am confused about cross-contamination. I wanted to get opinions on Edy’s/Dryer’s ice cream (They are the same brand. They just have different names depending on where you live). I emailed Edy’s/Dryer’s and asked about gluten. They said that it’s usually only the obvious flavors that contain gluten, but sometimes it can be in other ingredients. They use shared lines and make no claims about how well they might clean them between flavors (if they do). They emailed me a list of flavors and indicated only two they felt they could claim are gluten-free: slow churned french silk and slow churned neopolatin. I do not care for those flavors. The obvious ones with gluten (cookies, etc.) had a definite for containing gluten. The majority of the flavors on the list were listed as TBD: “We currently cannot make any claims about gluten-free for this product.” The flavors I am interested in eating are the cup size version of slow churned mint chocolate chip and the cup size version of grand peanut butter cup. I did not see any ingredients in those two that looked like they might contain gluten. Would you eat the products or would you be worried about cross-contamination? I don’t know how picky I need to be about cross-contamination. Thank you.
Hi there! Has anyone ever had a problem with frozen fruit? I haven't , but I have been buying the expensive, organic, packaged in Canada fruit. In my store, there are mangoes and durian packaged in the Philippines and Thailand, respectively. I really want to try this fruit but I'm nervous. Has anyone ever had a gluten reaction to frozen fruit?
