I CANNOT BELIEVE I DID THIS! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️⠀ ⠀⠀ But actually though... this is NOT a clickbait heading. A few weeks ago, I announced that Alex and I were going to reduce our meat intake. 🥦🥕🥬 A friend of mine very generously gave us the leftover legumes she had from a photoshoot. Last weekend, I finally got to making Wholesome Patisserie’s Vegetable Soup (go check it out!). I used two litres of homemade bone broth and just before I went to taste it, a lightbulb went off!!! 💡One of YOU recently messaged me saying that McKenzie's legumes aren't gluten free!!! I quickly checked the packet and lo and behold, the dreaded statement was there, "May contain gluten..." ❌ I made a massive amount of food with potentially cross-contaminated lentils... soul crushing. At least Alex's lunch is sorted for the month! 🤷♀️⠀ ⠀⠀ This was a great reminder that you can NEVER be too careful - no matter how many years into the journey you are. Always double check the label! 👉Does anyone have a similar story to share? Do you questions about gluten free labelling?⠀ ⠀⠀ #yumglutenfree #nocrumbsplease ...
Yep! Sometimes it’s a brand is often gotten but bought a variant without really paying attention at the shops and got caught out.
I don’t eat much from a packet anymore.
I know! It shattered me when I made pea and ham soup! I now buy gluten free online!
Damn it! 😡
Where is the best place to get gf legumes? I did the same thing this week with the same brand!
The May contain gluten is an arse covering statement .. it means the facility that packs also at times also does gluten containing ingredients.. it means it’s not a gf production facility and / or they don’t do the massive clean down between products .. the chances of the lentils being contaminated is minimal .. I have never had a reaction to the warning .. but it’s a lotto .. ✌️
Oh bugger, I had McKenzie’s lentils the other night!! I had some in a separate Tupperware container so didn’t have the packet and didn’t even think to check before using 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
It’s not just about the factory. I know many farmers who use the same machinery for legumes that they use for wheat, barley, and oats.
check 1) when you buy 2) when you put in pantry 3 ) when you cook with it
I don’t worry about May contains if the ingredients are gluten containing products. We’d never be able to eat anything!
I'm so sorry :( That's the worst... at least you didn't eat it and find out later.
Darn. Positive indeed for Alex. 😉 thank goodness you read the label before eating.
My 12 year old was baking for her CD sister and just as she was about to put the baking powder in, as the spoon was about to tip, she stopped and checked the pack! I must have missed it when I did my pantry clear out after diagnosis.
Yep, in my early coeliac days I made a big pot of chicken and veggie soup, and threw some ladlefuls into a risotto. It wasn't even a ‘may contain’ but contained barley. Obviously got sick but kept eating the soup as thought it would be good for me. Was my clever Mum who asked ‘can you have soup mix?’. I checked, and I’m, that would be a no! Mum gained a good sized container of soup and I got my first lesson in not being complacent (still am occasionally though, just forget sometimes).
Yep happened to me too.
With grown items like legumes (lentils, split peas etc) the cross contamination is from packaging and processing, it's impossible for gluten to be in the actual product. A thorough rinse or two and next time you should be fine to use them. Just a shame it's not so easy to rinse nuts and dried fruit!
Some years ago I raised the " may contain Gluten" with McKenzie and the defense was that its all about contamination due to processing of products like wheat/ Barley they produce. Just to reassure you (sort of) my wife has a nut allergy and just about everything other than distilled water has a label "may contain Nuts " and its similar to soy,, I think the companies are just making the issue is a bit Legally safe so WE cannot take them to court - its a way of protecting themselves rather than giving good honest advice.
I bought one of Yumi’s new dips when I did our online shop. Given it was Yumi’s (usually gluten and dairy free) I thought I was safe. It turned up with a may contain statement. I was gutted.
Got glutened last week from vitamin C tablets of all things 🤦♀️
Oh no!!! So sad. 😭 I hate wasting homemade bone broth
I heard that that split peas packets (& other dry legumes) may contain gluten, therefore i rang the Coeliac Society to check. They stated that if they are rinsed well before use, they'd be fine. The reason for this is that due ro them being dried, gluten or wheat can't stick to them. Just rinse well.
I've eaten my own homemade pea and ham soup (after rinsing the spilt peas) many times and have NEVER been ill or suffered from any symptoms. Hope that's helpful. 😊
