Hi there, I just noticed my iron supplement contains Iron Polymaltose. This is derived from both iron and Maltol. Maltol is obtained from roasted malt. ROASTED MALT 😨. Soooo a person goes to the doctors, is diagnosed with Celiac and as part of the treatment plan is prescribed an iron supplement that contains Maltol, an extract from malt, to help raise their iron levels? These doctors are killing us. Anyway please be careful and read all labelling carefully. I only noticed this myself as I kept getting bloating and skin rashes after taking my iron supplement only to find out it contains polymaltose a derivative of Maltol. Also I really had to go digging to find out how polymaltose is derived. I FINALLY stumbled, after much effort, across a site that says it comes from Maltol, which in turn comes from roasted malt. Talk about futher igniting the fire. Anyway here is the link that shows iron polymaltose is obtained from iron and maltol. info. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/548571_2 Here is the link showing Maltol is obtained from roasted malt. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltol
Hi all, Still working on my diagnosis (first GI appt today, excited!), but have a question for you all. I know a lot of celiac a suffer panic attack like symptoms from gluten exposure - dizzy, lightheaded, jittery, anxious, feeling like about to pass out. Obviously I have to be eating gluten right now, most of the time I don't have that kind of reaction, but I do get it from time to time, and I'm starting to wonder if it could be caused by maltose and/or malt flavoring? I can recall at least 3 specific instances recently where I've gotten the feeling after having alcoholic drinks made with malt (porter beer twice, brewer's malt, once lastnight from a hard root beer, a malt drink I believe). Also, my coworker made me some gluten-free goodies this week, one of them was an Oreo ball that had a cream cheese-chocolate filling, and had a bit of Bailey's Irish Cream in it as well, although she said a very small amount. Wondering if the Bailey's or something else in that treat had malt in it. Just a theory right now. Anyone?
