lynnhopes added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesBarley - Why Does It Not Affect Me Like Other Gluten?I was dx in July 2009 and became obsessed with label reading. I always had my list of gluten-free foods and checked everything. However, due to feeling so good and massive stress I got lazy recently. Well, I accidently ingested barley during the past few days in some sweets I had been having nightly. I normally react to a glutening with foul smelling stools, bloating, a few pounds of water weight and horrible constipation. Well, after this barley I have experienced NONE of these symptoms.
In fact, today was my first day post glutening and normally one day post glutening is horrible with bloating, constipation and embarrassing foul smelling stools.
Is there something inherently different about barley? I normally get sick as a dog from even one invisible crumb of wheat!!

lynnhopes added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithTravel Food PackI am going to a wedding in Scotland this weekend. I will be fine for the wedding dinner as the hotel knows about my celiac status. However, I will arrive very late on the Friday evening and will need to eat before bed. I may also need to eat on the Saturday evening after the wedding. The Sunday I will spend shopping in Edinburgh. I have already bookmarked the safe restaurants there so that is fine.
I have no mini fridge in my room as the hotel could not source one. They said I could store my food in their fridge if I wanted. I am not too comfortable with that however. The chef said he will cook the gluten-free sausages I need for my breakfast and I will bring them with me.
So for my evening meals/snacks I am bringing:
String cheese- will this be okay if not refrigerated? It will not be hot in Edinburgh.
Dark 85% chocolate
Can anyone else think of anything else I should bring?
