For years (before I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance) I thought I had allergies to rice, always feeling sick after stir fry and asian dishes. It was until after my diagnosis I realized rice In MOST cases was fine, it was actually the sauces, like soy and packed stir fry sauce that were making me feel nauseous.
Now I eat rice frequently, I also replace milk (which I am sensitive to with rice milk). Enjoy rice crackers as rather than to eating crisps and other gluten flavored things. I always check the sushi vingar used at any sushi place before I buy (ordering without soya sauce unless I know its gluten free too).
All rice is NOT gluten free Some rices at the grocery store and possibly chinese restaurants may be "enriched" and the "enrichment " is applied with a gluten base. It pays to check packets, ring the restaurant before hand to make sure you do not "Gluten" yourself.
Now I know if I do my research I can enjoy rice, knowing that it can be gluten
free! I love risottos, sushi, brown rice and steamed vegetables.
Gluten free rice can
be a perfect option for gluten free people. It pays to check the label,
as you do not want to risk cross contamination with any production
lines with wheat on them. But other then that rice is a safe bet for
those gluten free.
* Always check the packet, if it says it contains gluten do not eat it, watch out for flavored rice!
