Greetings everyone,and thank you for all your information!
I have been reading the board for about 9 years now, almost every day, although I hardly say anything. Thank you for all your information which has changed my life for the better!
I found recently that I can drink Trader Joe's organic mint medly tea without a problem. I do not take caffeine and wanted to find an herb tea but got sick repeatedly from all other herb teas I tried. I believe it was Roy (Good old Roy who finds so much information for all of us, thank you for a wonderful job, over and over!) who suggested it might be from the (was it plastic?)sealant in the teabag!
I have not had any problems with the Trader Joe's tea and I am one of the very sensitive ones in the group.

I have recently become addicted to my homemade mint-stevia tea. I have a lot of volunteer mint growing in my backyard from a previous tenant's planting. I am growing herbs and stevia in pots. I pick the fresh mint and steep it into tea - adding a few stevia leaves to sweeten. It is delicious and free!

It is the corn-based adhesive that is problematic in tea bags. Envelopes have the same adhesive so never lick them to close.

Does anyone know if Silk PureAlmond is safe? The ingredients are all natural almondmilk (filtered water, almonds), All Natural Evaporated Cane Juice, Calcium Carbonate, Sea Salt, Dipotassium Phosphate, Locust Bean Gum, Gellan Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Vitamin E (d-Alpha-Tocopherol), Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2. It also says on the package "added vitamins & minerals including vitamin e. I've been having a hard few days, so I'm not sure if I'm reacting to this Silk product, or just residual from the weekend.

From a health point of view, I personally try to stay away from "vitamin A palmitate", but I believe I react to all "gums", which there are two in this product.

Anonymous, You need to be aware that the vitamin D2 is generally manufactured from GM corn and cane juice is typically sprayed onto maltodextrin to evaporate so I avoid it. I usually run the other way if anything is vitamin or mineral "enriched" or "fortified".

hi anon, for what my 2c are worth: i drank nondairy products for several years and Silk was my favorite becoz it is so yummy- so it took me quite awhile to connect the dots and realize that: Calcium Carbonate, Dipotassium Phosphate, and especially all the Gums (including Carrageenan which is in some) were what was causing my stomachaches, and partly responsible for the rest of my digestive troubles.
Beware of anything that makes you want to have more, especially if it seems to be 'the only thing that makes you feel good'!
...becoz i didnt know any better at the time, i was using Silk etc to self-medicate the constant upset tummy that i hadnt yet realized Silk etc was giving me in the first place!

Anonymous, You can make almond milk from raw almonds quite easily. There is an appliance that makes this easier - it's not cheap, but if you drink a lot of alternative milks, it will pay for itself in no time. (Not to mention that you won't have to worry about the additives). The Soyquick maker (http://www.amazon.com/NEW-2009-Soymilk-Maker-SoyQuick/dp/B001EUA0V4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1278828338&sr=8-2) works wonderfully to make rice, nut, oat and soy (Yikes!) milk and it is really easy to use. It is entirely possible to make nut and rice milks without this appliance but I really like using it. I'm not sure if all of the soy milk makers will work for nuts and rice, but the one I linked to is the one I own so I know it works.

I love that Oscar Meyer is using cultured celery juice instead of lactic acid (corn derivative) but I am still afraid to try it. Since we can't tolerate any corn, we have to watch out for things like undeclared cornstarch in the packaging and corny additives used to make pork into ham in the first place. Anyone less sensitive tried it?

wow, never thought oscar meyer might have anything safe! i hadnt seen those but will look, as i know my gize would really love to have thin sliced meat on their sandwiches again...

we did do ok this past week with "minimally processed" herbed rosemary pork deli slices from trader joes that are made with salt-sugar-lemon-rosemary-lactic acid... and of course, the ubiquitous "natural flavors", argh- quite tasty, but i wont be buying it very often becoz of that. plus, rather spendy...

will definitely keep my eyes open for the oscar mayer version. they tend to be more moderately priced also :-)

There are some deli meats on the corn-free list. I've posted a link to the list before, but for those who may have missed it:
http://corn-freefoods.blogspot.com/2007/12/corn-free-foods-products-list-dec-2007.html

Corn-free is not a guarantee of no FGA, but it is a good place to start. Things on this list will not have hidden corny derivatives like dextrose on coffee beans or cornstarch on the packaging.

thanx kristy, it is a good place to start... you always post the most helpful tips and advice!

thankfully, my family does have some flex room with things like corn starch and dextrose - tho we do tend to avoid, knowing that where those are, more yuck is likely to be hidden

but one ingredient ive discovered to be the cause of MAJOR digestive problems for myself, and i suspect for the rest of my gize, turned out to be Carrageenan and a lot of lunch meats and cheeses are just loaded with it!

so i wanted to add that as a caution for anyone else searching for good 'safe' deli foods. i just could not figure out the cause of my chronic stomach aches until someone on this board mentioned carrageenan- after doing a bit of research i realized that even the spendy 'healthy' 'natural' shops & bakery love to use the stuff for that "fresh from the oven" look & feel it imparts to foods that will be sitting out in the warming case for hours...
which meant that everything i was eating from the muffin or scone for breakfast to the 'organic' deli sandwiches at lunch were usually coated with a carrageenan glaze, and it was effectively shutting down my digestion by coating my insides just like the chicken from the deli broiler, ugh! :P

I remember reading something about how carageenan is processed and there is corn involved. I think carageenan is one of those double-whammies....high in glutamates AND processed with corn derivatives.

None of my kids do well with carageenan. If the little one has it, we are guaranteed at least two sleepless nights!! It was one of the things on the trigger list for my eldest back in 1997 when he was small. I didnt know why it set him off at the time, i just knew from trial that it did big time.

You should read what Dr. Blaylock says---
"Ever heard of carrageenan?
You probably ate some this week. It’s a very common food additive made from seaweed, and it produces intense inflammation – even in small doses. It tends to worsen all bowel conditions, including IBS, and it can dramatically stimulate cancer growth. What’s more, food additives like carageenan and MSG can powerfully stimulate the bowel muscles, resulting in diarrhea and cramping." http://w3.newsmax.com/blaylock/17.cfm

we use it and also trader joes chicken broth, both regular and organic.... and so far it seems to be fine for us (no hyperactivity, moodswings, muscle cramps, headaches, palpitations or midnite restless legs afterward.

here's hoping they keep the same recipes!

...we can still use Pacific Organic broth as well (altho they do not have a totally clean label) but anything by Imagine is now off limits for us- boo!
i am not positive, but i suspect the difference may be that Imagine might be adding nutritional yeast or sthg like it, for a 'meatier' flavour... my personal symptoms after having Imagine soup or broths would seem to match up for that, becoz i end up feeling a lot like i did back when i was using Nutritional Yeast as a cheese substitute and the so-called 'healthy' Better Than Boullion soup bases all the time (i even had their cookbook :P

ironically, soup base was what drew me to this community in the first place- and 6 months later here i am commenting on it again

Di,
The garlic in this, organic or not, would cause migraines for me as it is too high in FGA. There is a lot of variation in how much FGA those of us affected so strongly can tolerate.
Unfortunately, Trader Joe's puts garlic in many of their products. Whole Foods also uses garlic in many of their products so watch out until you know whether you can tolerate it.
As time goes on, I have been reading this discussion board since before 9/11, I find I react to more and more things and smaller amounts
of glutamate. This has ocassionally tripped me up when I ate things I previously did not react to and got sick.
My migraines lasted from 3 to 5 days and usually had me down on the floor crawling around and vomiting since I couldn't take the pain of standing up. I am kind of a tough cookie as far as enduring things and taking care of my responsibilities no matter what but these used to make me "say the words that sailors use" to put it delicately.
I am very greatful to all who post here for their information and daily support. It makes getting through life a lot easier to know that their are others who need to modify their lives to live differently. And of all the vexing conditions to have, I feel happy that I am only required to eat in such a healthy way to survive!

Di they are delicious. My kids love them and the last few i add chili for a bit of bite for the adults. My kids really missed things like this that i used to buy ready done in the freezer section. They love these. Oh i should say to cook them i put a little olive oil on the baking tray and turn half way through then they go crispy too. I make them small bite size but it works jsut as well with a whole fillet just takes longer to cook.

It's hard to answer that without the specific ingredients, which vary by brand. It's generally made with cheap grains and may have beans (sometimes soy, which is probably genetically modified unless it says otherwise) added.

Ezekiel will depend on your sensitivity. It does have malted barley in it, which will have some glutamate. The other brand that is always nearby and is also sprouted grain has wheat gluten which we've reacted to.

Our family does very well with the Rudi's brand if we stick to the more basic breads. The spelt bread is currently what we use the most.

The safest, if you don't buy your own, is to look for a local bread that has only wheat flour, sugar, yeast, oil, salt. Watch out for "flour" that hasn't been listed out as usually they have malted barley.

For my son who is less sensitive than some, we let him have small amounts of white restaurant breads (e.g. hamburger buns) but we don't buy any to bring into the house.

Yesterday, my sister, who is a wonderful cook, made sauerkraut rye bread, from a bread machine recipe, but she took it out as dough and brushed it with butter and baked it. It was wonderful.

Sorry to take so long! We made this again in the bread machine without the caraway and it was really good.

3/4 c water
2 c bread flour (I used a mix of wheat and white)
1 c rye flour
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 tbsp brown sugar
1.5 tbsp molasses (used honey)
1.5 tbsp butter
1 cup sauerkraut, squeezed, drained, and chopped
1 tbsp caraway seeds, optional
2 tsp yeast

Put in machine according to bread machine directions. Wait to add additional water if it looks dry, and check partway through first kneading cycle; if sticky, sprinkle on more flour.

You are all very welcome!!

I make my own sauerkraut too and it is *so* easy! Most sauerkraut is cooked -- ie, all the probiotics are killed. It's still good as Vitamin K (which is neuroprotective against glutamate!) is not heat sensitive. But if you want the probiotics, make it yourself and store it, always with enough brine on top (you can make more easily) at the back of a cold fridge and it lasts a very long time.

Here's one site with instructions: http://www.wildfermentation.com/resources.php?page=sauerkraut

I've also been getting into making my own sour cream and kefir, if anyone is interested in hearing about that :-)

I guess we wouldn't have thought of rice as being unsafe to eat, as it's one of our staples. But the news is reporting arsenic in rice.

The Consumers Union study found higher levels of arsenic in brown rice than white rice, a result of how the two different types are processed. It also found higher levels in rice produced in Southern U.S. states than in rice from California or Asia.

Dr. Oz recommends we first rinse it well, then cooking "pasta style" with lots of water. He says that will get rid of about 30% of the arsenic.

We can only hope this may spur a movement to ""truth in labeling".

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/09/business/grocery-chain-to-require-labels-for-genetically-modified-food.html?_r=0

Major Grocer to Label Foods With Gene-Modified Content

Whole Foods Market, the grocery chain, on Friday became the first retailer in the United States to require labeling of all genetically modified foods sold in its stores, a move that some experts said could radically alter the food industry. A. C. Gallo, president of Whole Foods, said the new labeling requirement, to be in place within five years, came in response to consumer demand. “We’ve seen how our customers have responded to the products we do have labeled,” Mr. Gallo said. “Some of our manufacturers say they’ve seen a 15 percent increase in sales of products they have labeled.”

Foods that are (honestly) labelled non-GMO will sell faster than similar foods not labelled non-GMO. Therefore labelling foods non-GMO (if it can be done honestly) is a business advantage. When (not if) this business practice becomes the normal thing, any food not labelled non-GMO will sell so poorly that it won't be worth carrying in the store.

In this way, a free market (without law) can kick Monsanto's xxx posterior so hard so hard they gotta clear their throat to xxxx break wind.

Does anyone know about einkorn flour? I just received a bag of it yesterday to test. I made a loaf of bread and showed no symptoms at all after eating some. Normal white wheat bread can make me about 3 pounds heavier the day after I eat it but the einkorn bread had no effect. I'm hoping it will increase my limited range of foods to eat but I will keep it at a minimum regardless.

May I ask where you purchased the einkorn flour and what recipe did you use?

I ordered it from jovialfoods.com and used a bread recipe from their website. I also found a chocolate chip cookie recipe using einkorn flour that seems to sit just fine with me too though I can't eat chocolate after 6pm or it keeps me awake. I found it here:
