Margie some people just react to grains in general. Food for thought. Rice and rice syrup could be an issue with grain for you.

Hikeluv- thanks for the comments. Yes, my own sweets are fresh fruit or with fat and protein, only after a meal. This alone does not control it enough for me. I am adrenal fatigued and this volume question is extremely influenced by headaches, lack of sleep and other adrenal altering results should I fail to respect the new game in my life. 2 tablespoons of any sweet is my eating limit to avoid the glutton ouch. I desire to serve sweets without sulfites or artificials has been important guide for me so far. Wrong volumes compound the foods limits I address every time I put something in my mouth. Newbies may get caught on the rice syrup issue and others of spent organs may want to document their own personal limits. Limits change and not always for the better so I watch for little details to catch any sign of a decline before more serious symptom arise.

You are most welcome Cindy. Your time is respected here and I adore your stories that lead into a new gluten-free lesson every time you share with us. Let us hope that history does not repeat it self because we learned how to avoid them from CindyW. I just completed a Gluten Intolerance Group Survey and thought of you as I answered honestly. I love rice in all its many forms. It is the ingredients that process on or in rice that hurts. I questioned a package if glutinous rice product via this team once and no one could tell me why. My logic ended with ‘foreign package’ may be packed on equipment that processes another gluten grain. I am still testing my black rice and red rice to find any signs of ouch. I do alternate with other seeds and grains. Variety is always encouraged; never corn, soy, or buckwheat, though. I know this because I test on myself.

Inflammation does take 6-12 to a day to notice in fingers and ankles. Sulfites can take up to three days to tell-tail any symptoms. These are big reasons for me to journal so I can look back over a few days to pin point my no-no list issues.

Margie do you react to rice at all? If not then I would say it could be the amount of sugar. Use sparingly!

I see it as a less than great reaction due to over-all weakness that occurs with any sweet food not a gluten response; what do you think? - Margie

Hi Margie -
I often have bad reactions to sweets. My acupuncturist told me years ago that sugar weakens the digestive system. If I know there was no gluten involved I often assume that I just had more concentrated sugar than my body wanted. I've also had issues with blood sugar (hypoglycemia) all my life. For this reason I try to never have refined sugar/carbs without adding something with protein and fat. When I pair foods this way I can usually have a taste of the treat I crave, but not get sick. Hope this helps!

I love the thick treacle thickness of rice syrup. As a Gluten-free eater I intensely read all entries on this team to find some answers to prevent the very setting that would cause me pain. I avoid putting my hand over an open flame at thousands of heat degree calories. My goal is to learn all the tools for safe Celiac and gluten-free eating and learn which foods and their calories to use caution.

My current question is regarding the workings of three tablespoons of rice syrup into a recipe. I always loved Maple syrup on gluten laden Buttermilk Pancakes with fluffiness. The meal includes potential harm in the forms of whipped eggs and baking powder and creams of tarter. All are real factors I now have learned to avoid. The buttermilk, wheat flour, eggs, and even the baking powder has been rotation diet experienced in me. They all get a negative scoring on my reducing inflammation program. My gut has been clearing away all IBS symptoms; it is working. This comprehensive plan changes as newer discoveries about my latest responses to foods affect me and those results are seen in my journal to share with my analyzing team. I work like an army to guard the gate to my gut; working to ensure only nice pain-free food travels down into my ‘easily inflammable’ digestive system. I am like an anger managing person; but my flair-ups are expressed silently. As a child lashing out was unacceptable behavior in huge attendance classrooms. My chaos goes within.

My fragile workings have needed varied ways of eating. I found a glitch in my usage. The reduced sap of tress is different from the treacle viscosity I find in my testing source Lundberg Brand organic brown Rice syrup. I think it does not love me. I have a powerful well practiced awareness that my exhausted gut needs to avoid the strong stimulants of caffeine and sweet spikes. The depth of this awareness increases with each tested food. Occasionally, I want a sweet entry in my menu options. Sugar and many fruit based sweets are out because of sulfite-intolerances.

All the Gluten-Free guidelines say to watch out for the other types of rice syrup. They are processed with barley malt, a no-no on a strict gluten-free list. This is a wonder as: if you may be just gluten intolerance this product is a sweet usually with doctor approval of any type or brand. For a seriously sever Celiac or Me, a highly weakened system Gluten Intolerant: any cross contamination is fraught with hidden gluten laced pain threat. I have to be aggressive enough to request from myself, a dear friend in their own kitchen, or restaurant chef to produce the answers of: yes or no; can I eat this? I need to find the portents before I can decide to eat it. When the internet research is not finger tips away from the answers; I have to refuse the ‘unknown’ ingredient foods. This is often a social disappointment for the host. I wait to see what is not always written and not always available. Packaging must be seen. Labels must be consulted. I cannot rely on the chef. This innocent professional chef is usually not aware of every process affected on every ingredient of the foods to be served. I need to be on my own food guard aware of potential threats to the copasetic colonies in my tummy center.

This team has offered to me much wiser answers. Not all the exciting tastes and types of syrup have barley or other gluten laden grain in the processing. Lundberg brand Brown Rice Syrup has been shown to be gluten-free. I see it as a less than great reaction due to over-all weakness that occurs with any sweet food not a gluten response; what do you think?
