Of course everyone is getting ready for Passover, it seems we have it a bit easier if our households are totally GF, since we can't have the 5 grains.

But while checking out some sites I came upon this and it might explain some reactions when eating something you think is safe.

There are many companies now that produce frozen vegetables that make a line that includes pasta in the mix. These same production lines could also be producing your peas, or carrots, corn, etc and being contaminated with gluten.

So if you do buy from a company that also makes a pasta meal veggie line, be sure to rinse well or if super sensitive, stay away from that line and eat fresh!

Quote :
Frozen vegetables: Many bags of frozen
vegetables are produced on the same machinery that also produces pasta
or pasta/vegetable blends. Since pasta is made from grain and not
allowed, neither are most frozen vegetables, unless made under

Quote :
Raw vegetables: Some fruits and vegetables
(cucumbers for example) have wax coatings that may be made from soy
proteins and oils derived from grain.

Quote :
Milk: Unsuitable additives are often used.
Chocolate milk is usually unacceptable because it could contain corn
syrup or malt, which is made from grain. And these are just food items.
Balloons and rubber gloves can have a powdered coating on them, which
may be considered Khametz. Even some bug traps use an oatmeal or
wheat-based substance and must be removed from the premises.

Quote :
Dried fruits: These are often dried in ovens
where bread is sometimes baked. Some also have waxes, oils, and even
traces of flour to prevent sticking.

it seems our disease works interchangably with Passover, and precautions and certain allowed foods are in common.
