Is this stuff gluten free or not ??? It says on their PDF that it’s not. But, I don’t see any obvious gluten containing ingredients. I just contacted them, they have not gotten back to me yet. I am going to stop using it until I find out for sure …
* Update 3/4/13 – T.J.’s just got back to me, and the Vanilla Organic Hemp Protein Powder does not contain any gluten ingredients, but it is not processed in a dedicated facility … trying to decide whether to finish the rest or not …
Currently reading: Dangerous Grains, it’s an older book on gluten intolerance, but I like to learn all I can. I’ll update with any interesting information 🙂
After 30 days of being soy & egg free, I reintroduced soy first (I know, I know soy is evil …) After about a week, I did not notice any problems from the soy. Then I reintroduced eggs. I had one poached egg. Within 30 minutes, my throat and ears felt itchy, I was sneezing and coughing …
I felt better the next day, so I made a GF cookie mix that used one egg. After two cookies, I was congested again and my tongue and throat were a little sore. Guess I need to avoid eggs ?
Not much change at this point, almost two whole months gluten free, can’t wait ’til it’s been 3 months ! Or, 6 months for that matter … I’ve heard that the fatigue may lessen in a few months 🙂
I am currently reading Dr. Stephen Wangen’s book: “Healthier Without Wheat: A New Understanding of Wheat Allergies, Celiac Disease, and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance”
If you have any interest in gluten intolerance/gluten sensitivity, I highly recommend you read this book. Dr. Wangen makes it very easy to understand.
I’ve managed to stick with half of this diet, I am still soy & egg free, but not dairy and grain. I got sick with some sort of stomach illness last week and the only thing that seemed to soothe my stomach was Rice Chex and yogurt. Oddly enough, I have been doing quite well with this, so I will stick with only being soy & egg free for the rest of the 30 days (10 to go.)
Plus, I’m almost to TWO whole months gluten free !!!
