Learn about Gluten In Food Processing Industry

Learn About Gluten in the Food Processing Industry

I wanted to share this article and its website, www.aboutgrain.com, because it has multiple articles about gluten in the food processing industry.

It’s difficult to know if you are allergic to gluten.  There are medical tests for this however the cost may be outside your budget.  One way to unofficially test is just to go for 60 or 90 days without any gluten in your diet. 

I know its a challenge but it can be done.  Treat it as if it was your latest “diet plan”.  It costs no extra money through wise shopping.  It does cost you extra time in reading and researching the meaning of the information contained in the food labels and packaging.

If your abdomen size decreases, you feel better, don’t experience any of the possible symptoms that gluten can cause,  then pay attention to it.  Your body is trying to send you a message!  The odds are that you have a gluten intolerance or you’re allergic.  Discuss your findings with your physician and see if he notices a difference upon physical examination.  Who knows maybe you can stop taking your over the counter or prescription medication for your gastrointestinal issues.  Your physician will know whether that’s one less medical bill for you  Would not that be a blessing?   No Name Atty

Addendum:  Thrive does have a large certified gluten free line of foods.  Check and see if through buying the packages or individuals cans, you can not only add variety to you gluten free diet but save money.

Those that have been diagnosed with celiac disease or other forms of gluten intolerance sometimes may have a hard time finding foods that are free of gluten. It’s not that there aren’t any options, but the problem is that even foods where gluten should naturally be absent still use it somewhere in the food processing environment.

To understand what is gluten and why it makes it into so many different foods, we have to take a look at what it is, what makes it so desirable in the food industry and what are the different stages of gluten usage – from main ingredient to a substance that is nothing more than a contaminant.

Why You Should Avoid Imported Foods From China

Here is an article by Mike Adams of www.Natural News.com that I think is worth reading regarding imported foods from China and the environment in which these foods are grown.

Many major companies import food from China, i.e., Green Giant brand.  Read the label carefully.  “Packed in the USA” does not mean grown in the USA.  When you see “Packed in the USA” without identifying the country the food was grown, you can assume that the food processor thinks if you knew you would not buy their product, i.e., China, Southeast Asia.  So read your labels carefully!   It’s a matter of you having good health! —No Name Atty.

 

‘Organic’ from China exposed: The shocking truth about ‘organic’ foods grown in  the world’s worst environmental cesspool

(NaturalNews) When it comes to foods, superfoods and even nutritional  supplements from China, “organic” is largely a hoax. This is my opinion, of  course, but I’ve been researching the issue quite extensively as the key  decision maker for new products in the Natural News Store. And I’ve come to the  conclusion that “organic” from China is largely a fraud. Here’s  why…

First off, you’re going to be shocked to learn that there is no  limit to how much mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum is allowed in  “organic” products.

It’s a fact: USDA organic standards place NO  LIMITS on levels of heavy metals contamination of certified organic foods. Even  further, there is no limit on the contamination of PCBs, BPA and other synthetic  chemicals that’s allowed in certified organic foods, superfoods and  supplements.
