  1. I called yesterday to ask if Kix was gluten free. They said yes, and that any of their products that dont list wheat, rye, barley, or oats are gluten free. I asked if there was any risk of cross contamination, and they said no, that it was made in a seperate facility. Has anyone else been told this? I have to admit, I am still nervous to try it.
  2. just about everything Great Value marks gluten free. It took me a while to realize that there was a marking on the back that says may contain traces of wheat.
  3. My main flour is tapioca flour and sweet rice flour. I use a 50/50 mix and so far it has worked great for me. I havent used it in bread. I buy it at the healthfood store and it is very inexpensive-just a couple dollars for a box of it. I also occasionally use potato starch and cornstarch-again 50/50-I have used that for cake mixes.
  4. you would have to give her gluten(and plenty of it) for 6 weeks to 3 months to get a postitive test-if its celiacs. If she has a gluten intolerance and you know for sure, what will change if the test comes back positive for celiacs? If your answer is nothing, I would hold off and do the test when she is older. My son had a positive celiac blood test at 13 months and we decided not to do the endoscopy until he is older. We are strict as can be to avoid 100% of all gluten. Good luck on your decision.
  5. We avoid wheat at all costs. Processed in the same facility seems to effect my son as much as eating a piece of wheat toast. We had numerous problems with the walmart "gluten free" until I realized that it said that it was processed in a facility with wheat. Now I always read extra carefully.
  6. they are not fried seperatly at the BK by my house.
  7. My grandma is 80+ with what she calls Celiac Sprue and is as healthy as they come!
  8. Are you in the US? I had never heard of uht milk, so i googled it, and it seems to be a Canada/australian thing. I can find any info about it-sorry. I would recommend calling the company.
  9. My baby(16 months) has a similar reaction to gluten. He will be miserable sick and the slightest thing makes him so mad, he will throw himself back as hard as he can over and over screaming and yelling. I hadnt really thought ahead to what it will be like when he is older. That is a scary thought. I guess the best you can do is talk to her and explain that being so moody doesnt help matters. Maybe you can buy her a little punching bag or something to let her frustrations out on. I couldnt imagine being such a small child and being in so much pain.

  11. I love Bob's Red Mill Pizza crust! I like it better than almost any gluten crust.
  12. I would be watching very carefully. To me, 3 weeks seems a long time. The last time my son got glutened, it took him almost 2 weeks to get over it. Do you eat any gluten foods in your house? If so, I would be more inclined to think it was cross contamination. I hope he feels better really soon. What does charcoal do? Also, I would definitly not let him play with playdough-all it takes is a little under the fingernails that you miss and he is sick=(. You can make gluten free playdough.
  13. I am making my own Thanksgiving dinner the day before Thanksgiving. Then when we go to the inlaws, I will bring my baby his own plate of food and snacks to eat. i will also bring a gluten free dessert that he can eat. The risk of cc is to high in my opinion. I make pumpkin pie with no crust and I love it! I hate crust so it works out well for me too=).
  14. The first thing I did was get online and look up the regular stuff that we ate every day to see if any of it was gluten free. Surprisingly a lot of it was-ketchup, salad dressing, pasta sauce, etc... I not to buy store stuff labled gluten free too much, because it seems like just putting a gluten-free lable raises the price. Bread is a tough one, but it isnt that hard to make-unfortunately in the 3 months that I have been gluten free I havent been too impressed with bread, so we just pretty much cut it out totally. There are a lot of other grains that taste good that are naturally gluten free. Rice Pasta tastes really good. So we spend about 100 dollars a week on food and then usually eat out once or twice a week(gotta love Wendys gluten-free chili and frostys!). Remember the easiest things that are gluten-free. Meat, veggies, fruits, etc.. I know they cost more though=(. The biggest thing we do to save money is to make soups and chilis and stuff. I make a big pot of food every couple days to eat for lunch for me and the kids. (Luckily my husband has a microwave at work so he can take soup too). My main thing in grocery shopping is trying not to buy hardly any processed foods. I know it is hard, but there are all kinds of yummy treats that you can make that are homemade that are much cheaper than processed gluten free foods. Fruit slices dipped in yogurt(just make sure its gluten-free), homemade french fries(regular and sweet potato fries), 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies(sugar egg and pb), Chex cereal is a big money saver-at walmart, the boxes are 2 dollars a box and they have chocolate, honey nut, cinnamon, corn and rice-all of those are gluten-free! They make great snacks. I made muddie buddies and they were a huge hit. Pumpkin pie made without the crust is so good(cheap right now because the pumpkin is on sale! I even made black bean brownies that were quite a hit around here. Dont forget that most plain canned beans and veggies are gluten-free and cheap, just check the ingredients(Walmart brand beans are NOT gluten free). Good luck!
