    Default Wheat also known as.....

    Hi,

    Suspect wheat maybe a trigger for a flare or aggravate your symptoms? Thought I'd share a file of mine, a list of wheat subsitutes and other names where wheat disguises itself...I was surprised when I read soy sauce.

    One day I swore I did not eat wheat...Had Asian Cuisine, suffered a reaction, aggravation. Who knew, soy sauce!

    Information for using wheat substitutes:
    One cup of wheat flour equals:
    1 cup rye meal
    1 to 1 1/4 cups rye flour
    1 cup potato flour
    1 1/3 cups rolled oats or oat flour
    1/2 cup potato four plus 1/2 cup rye flour
    5/8 cup potato starch
    5/8 cup rice flour plus 1/3 cup rye flour

    How to read a label for an wheat-free diet:
    Be sure to avoid foods that contain any of the following ingredients:

    bread crumbs
    bran
    cereal extract
    couscous
    cracker meal
    enriched flour
    farina
    gluten
    graham flour
    high gluten flour
    high protein flour
    spelt
    vital gluten
    wheat bran
    wheat germ
    wheat gluten
    wheat malt
    wheat starch
    whole wheat flour

    Other possible sources of wheat or wheat products:
    Ingredients that may indicate the presence of wheat protein include the following:

    gelatinized starch
    hydrolyzed vegetable protein
    kamut
    modified food starch
    modified starch
    natural flavoring
    soy sauce
    starch
    vegetable gum
    vegetable starch

    Good to know!
    I'd not have considered soy sauce, either. I eat a lot of Asian Cuisine, too--thinking I was avoiding high risk, high inflammation foods. Who knew?
    Thanks for the list,
    Kristin

    Thanks, Oluwa. This a really helpful list. I'm going to print it off and carry it in my purse for grocery shopping. I'm trying to be careful about wheat - I hear so many people who have autoimmune disorders talking about sensitivity to wheat/gluten. I don't have Celiac disease (or at least the blood test was negative) but my doctor said that doesn't mean that I wouldn't still have a sensitivity to gluten. I think I do feel better avoiding it. All good things to know...thanks again.

    You are all very welcome.

    Wheat does obscene things to me. Hard belly bloat, itchy, aggravates the Lupus pain, more lethargic, weak and I feel drunk like. I just plain feel icky.

    Keep well,
    Oluwa
