glutenfreeontario replied to silent gent's topic in Celiac Disease - Friends and Loved Ones of CeliacsAccording to Beano's website, there is no gluten in the product. It says:
I just wanted to mention that SUGAR-FREE candy/chocolate/cookies/drinks contain artificial sweeteners... which are known to cause digestive problems. Sugar alcohols include: Xylitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol, Isomalt, Maltitol, Lactitol... and others. Source of quote If they don't have sugar alcohols, they most likely contain aspartame... which can cause a whole bunch of symptoms - including digestive ones. I avoid artificial sweeteners... except in gum since the amount consumed is so small... and I'd rather not bathe my teeth in sugar
I live in Toronto and can tell you about my favourite places Cafe Next Door on Broadview serves awesome gluten-free grilled cheese plus tons of other meals. Il Fornello has several locations across Toronto and they have great gluten-free pizzas and pastas. Thirty Five Elm Restaurant is very similar to Il Fornello - same kind of pizza crust and rice pastas. If you're just looking for a quick bite, New York Fries (located in most malls) only cooks fries in their fryers (no onion rings or chicken nuggets, etc, that would contaminate the oil). The fries are awesome!! Cheese sauce and ketchup are gluten-free too. Anyway...
