If You Are Gluten Free, Avoid Snickers

Snickers don’t contain any gluten in the ingredients, which is typically all I care about. I don’t have celiac disease, just a gluten sensitivity, so I typically don’t worry TOO much about cross contamination. I just had a Snickers, though, and my stomach hates me now which is fair warning that if you have even the mildest sensitivity, you should probably avoid them unless you don’t mind getting sick.

  1. Btw, another comment for Agnes. I thought I was allergic to gluten, but what I have apparently only classifies as a sensitivity. I recently saw an allergy specialist and they tested me for all sorts of things (and they found nothing, as they were only looking for allergic reacations that are immediate, i.e. take less than 15 minutes to develop). As the symptoms for sensitivity are milder, they didn’t think my problems were severe enough to justify further investigation which would involve blood analysis and cost a fortune. I guess trial and error is the only way to see if gluten (and other products) is in deed the problem, but it shouldn’t be so hard. After two weeks of not eating bread I took a piece of multigrain bread and got nausea and headache within an hour, so the symptoms were really clear. When I explained my symptoms to the doctor, he said that avoiding wheat is always good, regardless of whether you’re sensitive to gluten or not.

  2. I ran through the same tests and came back negative on everything. I got migraines at least once a month and I was tired all the time. It was not until I developed this awful rash that they suggested I was gluten intolerant. Not only that, I cannot have anything artificial including food coloring like red dye, caramel flavoring, etc. Basically, the doctor said if I could not make it with my hands, don’t eat.
    I have been gluten free for over two years now and have lost 25 pounds, rarely get migraines and no longer have high blood pressure. It is the best I have ever felt. Now, I’m pregnant and I am CRAVING snickers and Dr. Peppers. And I was trolling the internet to give an excuse to get one and then I found this. Very insightful.

  3. I found out from enterolab.com. They do all kinds of allergen testing from stool samples which are more accurate then blood work- everything I did never showed anything- this did. My numbers were 44 and Shoukd be <10.

  4. I eat snickers mini and big frequently and I don’t believe I have ever gotten sick from that. Mostly everything else does get me sick but not that. I do have celiac disease.
