A while ago, a list member called both Welch's and Tropicana about their calcium fortified juices. BOTH companies use a calcium supplement that has starch in them. This makes their calcium fortified juices illegal.
Recently, Tropicana changed their packaging; both the Tropicana Pure premium Orange Juice with calcium and the Tropicana Pure premium Orange Juice without calcium look almost identical. You need to inspect to insure that you are buying juice without any added calcium.
There is no designated Pecanbread person to investigate the legality of foods. Even if there were, it is up to each person to decide if they wish to take the risk of an unlisted food. In the case of juice, our approved list contains widely available brands.
Homemade food is more delicious and nutritious.
List for SCD baked goods.
These are good sources for grain-free, starch-free, gluten-free, yeast and lactose free baked goods. Some contain advanced ingredients like nut pieces and dried fruits so use according to the stage of progress you are at. Children should not use nut pieces, peanut butter, seeds and dried fruits during the first months of the SCD diet. (Nuts are easier to digest when they have been ground up into nut flour or butter )
As well, some of these websites contain other ready made foods that we cannot vouch for although the companies declare they are suitable for SCD. We always like to caution that you use such items at your own risk as we cannot validate the ingredients personally.
List of SCD frozen meals.
This website provides children with the SCD version of popular foods such as Chicken Nuggets and Pizza. Please be aware that these foods are not for people who are beginning the SCD.
All of the beans in these products are soaked and prepared in strict accordance with SCD requirements. However, beans are considered an "advanced food" on SCD and should be used with caution.. Please try a very small piece the size of a dime and see if your child tolerates it. If your child does not tolerate it then freeze the food and retry after several months.
