Are vinegar and/or sulfites ok for people with celiac disease?

Question by : Are vinegar and/or sulfites ok for people with celiac disease?
Specifically the item in question is Trappey’s Hot Peppers in Vinegar. The ingredients list both vinegar and “sulfites” and on the allergy warning it says “contains: sulfites.” They are tiny little flaming hot peppers so it’s not something you eat in large quantities.

Best answer:

Answer by Caly
It looks like it should be okay. The only think that may cause problems is the vinegar. Technically vinegar is okay, but occasionally, it can be processed improperly, and then it could cause problems. Personally, I would try them and I have celiac disease.

Q&A: What vitamins should I take if I have celiac disease and lactose intolerance?

Question by Aphotic45: What vitamins should I take if I have celiac disease and lactose intolerance?
I take calcium tablets every now and then.

Best answer:

Answer by Nurse Diesel
Since both celiac and lactose intolerance will make it difficult for you to digest and extract nutrients from food, it would probably benefit you to supplement all vitamins. You’ll need to pay for them, and probably go to a health food store to find some that don’t have gluten or dairy in them, and they’ll be fairly spendy.
In addition, eating nutrient-dense foods can also help. Cod Liver Oil combined with High Vitamin Butter Oil (link below) is an easy way to supplement all the fatty vitamins, which are essential for hormone production (which run your body). Also adding organic coconut oil to your diet will help. Since Celiac and lactose intolerance can both disrupt your gut flora, you should probably supplement that as well. You can use probiotic capsules for this (found in fridge section at a health food store, and also expensive), or you can make fermented foods at home and supplement yourself less expensively – beverages like Kombucha and Beet Kvass are very nutritive and easy to make at home. You can use the whey from yoghurt to make your own pickled vegetables, and it shouldn’t bother your stomach even though whey is taken from a dairy product.

Organ meats, like liver and sweetbreads are also very nutrient dense – though I must confess I have yet to be brave enough to try them. But I do like pate, so that’s one way you might try.

I recommend a cookbook/nutritional encyclopedia called “Nourishing Traditions” that is available at health food stores or on Amazon for about $ 25 or so.

Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease: Health Promotion and Maintenance

A gluten free diet as the name would imply, pertains to the exclusion of foods that contain gluten. Gluten is an amino acid that is readily found in wheat and wheat products (which includes kamut and splet), as well as products like barley, rye and triticale. It is used as a food derivative that can be taken in conjunction with a stabilizing agent dubbed as dextrin. It is a type of a diet that is medically engineered to be a treatment for the main cure of celiac disease that is often related to dermatitis and wheat allergy. Moreover, a gluten-free diet ultimately excludes oats oriented products.

In recent researches, a grain free diet can be derived from a gluten-free diet since they do have the same set of qualities and properties. People who are really suffering from illnesses like high blood pressure, diabetes, high concentration of cholesterol in blood result to the cutting of gluten from their diet and it still may not cut for it. Needless to say, lots of these chronic digestive conditions can be directly linked to weight loss and can be readily cured by simply removing the main source of the problem.

People who have been struggling with a lost case against the maintenance of a healthy weight ranged are suggested by health experts to remove grains from their daily food consumption. The over consumption of these grains and sugar is one of the major component as to why diabetes and obesity as well as other major chronic digestive disease develop. If you happen to have observed that you body has become increasingly lethargic or you have exceeded the expected weight for your age and height as well as having the feeling of your muscles being covered in thick layers of fat compare to the expected trait of having it lean and strong then one should try to remove the following food groups in their food consumption:

  • Gluten rich products that are included in free grains, bread pasta and noodles
  • Leguminous plants like beans and peas.
  • Sugar
  • Potatoes as well as sweet potatoes

Whether you opt for gluten or grain free products, there should be an unwavering focus and commitment to the ever demanding health promotion and maintenance.

Q&A: Gluten-free diet without celiac disease or intolerance?

Question by : Gluten-free diet without celiac disease or intolerance?
Is it safe/ can you maintain a gluten-free diet without having a gluten intolerance or celiac disease? Also how would you make the transition?

Best answer:

Answer by ★☆W.a.b.b.y✿❀
Why would you want to?

A gluten free diet is expensive and the food is less than average. There are people who have to be gluten free and wish that they weren’t.

Gluten free food is low in fiber and often doesn’t have the same vitamins and minerals found in the gluten containing equivalents. Gluten free food is high in sugar and fat.

When people withdraw from gluten they often get very fatigued and have headaches for the first few weeks.

So if you can put up with feeling tired, having headaches, being constipated, putting on weight and being at risk of a vitamin deficiency all while paying more money to eat food that doesn’t taste very nice, then sure, go for it.

I would recommend you speak to your doctor about this before making any changes to your diet.
