I am glad that you are feeling better each day. That is sad as sometimes we think that it is safe to eat and it is not and then you feel lousy for a while. You take care. That is why it is so important to read labels and then sometimes manufacturer's change ingredients and bam!! we get hit again. It is so important to be your advocate and if I am not sure then I just do not eat it.

I cut my dairy WAY back (less than 1/2 cup per day) when I got off gluten, and in general the small amount I do have hasn't been bothering me. Also...
a.) I had only 1 bite of mashed potatoes (I'm not a big fan)
b.) the pumpkin pie was dairy-free
c.) I don't butter peas
Not only that, it got worse each day that I ate ham. I am doing better today - still some cramping but noticeably less.

Just a thought besides the ham...what about dairy? Mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie both have that, plus butter for peas. Have you been having dairy all along?

I am most definately done with the ham. Although it didn't have glaze or smoke flavor added I think it's pretty clear that it wasn't a "safe" bet. I am hoping that it is the cause of my problems because if it's not, I have got to re-think my entire diet... again. I won't be touching the stuff again and hopefully will be better in a day or so.

The hams that have that yeast added to it also might have wheat in it too. So make sure that there is no yeast added to the ham.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

SOme hams are naturally smoked (I sometimes indulge in naturally smoked, lower sodium, prosciutto; Maple Leaf also has a brand that is naturally smoked), etc and contain no preservatives. Others, on the other hand, have nitrates and liquid smoke which can contain gluten.
There is also uncured, unsalted ham. I buy this direct from a farmer, so there is also no hormones or unnatural feed of anykind.

Ham is a processed food and so it may have additives and cross-contamination from being produced. I only eat ones that specifically say gluten free on it because it is less likely. Companies don't want to get sued. Hope you feel better!

Interesting thought about the yeast... I don't eat it much anymore since going gf but I did make some homemade gf bread and it didn't bother me. That said, I didn't eat much of it at a time.

I have not been diagnosed with Celiac; my doctor kinda blew me off, prescribed prilosec and said give it 1-2 months. I felt so horrible that I decided to go off gluten and see if that helped. I felt better within a few days. I haven't gone off the prilosec yet - I figured I'd finish the prescription and then not refill and see what happens.

As far as how I'm feeling, I've got stomach pain within 30 minutes of when I eat and it bothers me off and on all day. I'm running to the restroom too, if you know what I mean. A bit of bloating, but none of this is as bad as when I was eating gluten on a regular basis.

Some hams do have a glaze and that you have to be careful as it could have gluten. I am sure that most hams without glaze is fine but I still read the ingredients. I hope that you feel much better.

I wish I had an answer for you but I don't know. I have eaten Kirkland sliced ham on gluten free bread and it seemed okay...that was like 4 days ago, but even though i believe i have been totally gluten free something is happening to me again and i will be going back to the doctor for this breathing test where they tell you if you have an overgrowth of bacteria in your small intestine which then has to be treated with antibotics. I seem to be really healthy and active and gluten free and then just all of a sudden crash and burn. according to the doctor i might be someone who has to go on a round of antiboitics once a month to control this overgrowth which people with Celiac get. I am totally crashing. What are your symptoms?

Is it possible that there is gluten in ham??? We had a small family event that ended in a day of travel so I didn't try to do turkey, and just warmed up a ham instead. I made my own mashed potatoes, peas, salad and gluten-free pumpkin pie. I have felt progressively worse since Thanksgiving dinner - and the only thing I can think of is that maybe the ham was not gluten free? (I have had some everyday since Thanksgiving.) I read the ingredients and although I know that ham is not particularly healthy (all those sulfates/sulfites) none of the ingredients raised a red flag - it didn't even have those "natural flavors" or "spices". Anyone else ever have trouble with ham?
