I detest coconut so have no idea, I'd be wary of flavored rums in general. I'd try contacting the manufacturer and asking.

Now I remember what I was going to say before. There used to be a great website but it has completely disappeared from the internet, so going from memory and other partial lists I've seen here and there.

Thanks, I very seldom have a drink but I'd like to know if I do that I'm being smart about it. I like Coconut Rum do you know if that would still be gluten free??? Don't like wine or beers though.

there is lots of GF alcohol - wine, hard apple ales, GF Beer, technically anything distilled is GF since the distallation removes the gluten molecules but there are some people that still react. Rum is naturally GF, there are potato vodka's. All I can think of off the top of my head.

I had something else but poof, it's gone.

I don't get digestive upsets from gluten, I find out the next morning when I've been "glutened". I wake up in agony with terrible back pain. I also suffer brain fog. If it is just a little gluten, like wheat in a bit of soy sauce then I just suffer with the back pain for a couple of days. More gluten and I'm a half stumbling zombie for a week or so. If I wake up in pain now I lay in bed thinking....geeze, what did I eat? The last time was when my son convinced me to taste a new whiskey he'd bought. emoticon Of course it was some kind of glutinous grain they distilled.

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.

The peanut sauce was Harris teeter generic brand and I called the company and the told me if there were any items containing gluten the package would say so. I have eaten it two other times this week with no problems also. The egg rolls were prepackaged frozen egg rolls that went straight from the oven to the kids plates.

The only thing I think it could be is either cross contaminated rice, la choy sweet and sour duck sauce or this sliced pickled ginger. The sauce and gingers ingredient lists looked innocent enough, but you never know I guess.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one with these weird flu like symptoms.

Feeling much better today btw, I just kinda have a gluten hangover. Foggy head & tender tummy.

I'm presuming you made the peanut sauce yourself otherwise I would look at that as well. And cooking the egg rolls or were they already prepared? One time I made a gluten Spice cake for a function and I couldn't believe the amount of flour that was in the air and I breathed it accidentally. I felt the effects of the gluten. I thought I was careful too because I've been doing this for 30 + years.
You do feel the effects more because they are no longer masked. It's a weird situation that I always find hard to explain in a few words.
Hope you're feeling better soon. I know those cramps. I used to be doubled over in so much pain that I couldn't talk but that was partly to an undiagnosed shellfish allergy.

Oh yes, I feel AWFUL after eating gluten by accident. The most recent incident was at a restaurant. It's an Italian place that offers a few GF pasta options. Our waitress informed me that she also is GF and pointed out the options she likes the best so I picked one of those. Being GF herself I'm confident that she wrote the order down correctly. My only guess is that the kitchen messed up and either gave me regular noodles, or they cooked the GF noodles in the same water as regular noodles.

That night I was super sick. Bloating, gas, cramping, diarrhea, headache, fogginess, unable to sleep... a lot of the same symptoms as you. My stomach felt tender as well, like I was getting over the stomach flu. It was a full 48 hours before I felt normal again.

It could be that your rice was contaminated, especially if it's been a while since you last used them and you don't remember if the scoop you used was "clean". You did the right thing throwing it away. As far as I know all rice, even sticky rice (also called glutinous rice) should be safe as long as it isn't cross contaminated.

This is a list of grains and flours, indicating which are safe and which are not safe for Celiacs:

ours_glossary.jsp

Since going GF, I've used Basmati rice, long grain brown rice, and arborio rice in my cooking. None of these have caused me issues.

I'm sorry that you got so sick and I hope you feel better soon.
