I am extremely sensitive to gluten. At this time, I don't know if I am intolerant or celiac, but whenever I get the tiniest bit of gluten my GI symptoms are horrible. A few weeks ago I had a product I believed to be gluten free and it turned out to have a food starch that contained gluten. I only had a few bites and I was sick in a couple of minutes and in terrible pain for over a week. I normally have only GI symptoms ranging from pain in my stomach, spasms in my lower abdomen, and diarrhea that won't stop.
I decided to try this product because I am going on vacation (a week in Disneyland and several days in Arizona). And although I plan to continue my G-Free diet I worry about an accidental cross-contamination ruining my whole trip. I decided to take a very frightening test. I haven't purposely ingested gluten in over two years. I took a pill and then drove to my local Subway and ordered a wheat bread 6" pastrami sandwich. I brought it home and I was too scared to take it out of the package, so I took a second pill.
I ate the sandwich and started a stop watch to see if it would postpone the reaction and by how long. After 6 HOURS I still didn't have a single symptom. I was shocked and turned off the stop watch.
Since I don't know if I am celiac or not I will not go out of my way to eat gluten (I worry if I am not protected from damage that I don't know about). But, now I can rest easy about my vacation and may even have a piece of cake at my sister's wedding in Arizona.
It is an unbelievable relief to know that I can now not be so worried about exposure to gluten. Thank you so much for this product. I am so grateful.
