  1. For a Celiac, just a supposedly gluten-free crust would not be enough.  I would check that they are using separate pans, cutting utensils and clean toppings.  When they stretch out  a crust and then put thier hands in the cheeses or other toppings, they transfer some flour to the container. 
  2. Celiac in kids?

    To add to what Barty said - you must be on a regular gluten containing diet to get Celiac blood tests and endoscopic  biopsies.  See a medical doctor, pediatrician or GI or Family Practice, and   do that before you go gluten-free .
  3. turkey

    No you cannot eating gluten containing stuffing.  You can't eat the turkey it was cooked in, either.  There is no way to be sure no stuffing gets in or on the turkey.  You could make a gluten-free stuffing.  And,  from a general food safety issue, you shouldn't cook the stuffing in the bird.  
  4. Pissenlit - Dent-the-lion

    I don't speak French, so I am not really sure what you are asking.   There is no gluten in the root of a plant.  gluten is in the seed of wheat, rye or barley.   Dandelions do not contain gluten.  If they are inside a food, there could be gluten in another ingredient.
  5. Gluten Free Restaurants NYC

    I know there are a few completely gluten-free restaurants and bakeries.  You might try googling " gluten free New York".  Also, check the website " find me gluten free".  You can read reviews and find places that you can investigate further.
  6. This topic is from 2007.   I think they were asking for something gluten-free that is similar to  ritz crackers.  Not sure we can prove that Ritz cause Celiac.    
  7. Before you diagnose yourself  & prescribe treatment  -  what did the doctor say?  What course of action?  I know several people with lupus & they are living normal lives.   
  8. 7-11

    You are replying to posts from 2007.  Any product info may have changed in 8 years.  And these posters probably aren't still around
  9. Hidden Gluten?

    No.  You could have a separate issue with corn.
  10. The rice is sort of mushy.  its delicious, that's just how it is supposed to be.  It would be good with fruit in it - canned crushed pineapple or raisins and be breakfast.
  11. I used this recipe.  I used frozen peas instead of canned.  I used jalapenos for the marinade and salsa and it wasn't hot.  But a great flavor.
  12. Sunday night- made jerk pork tenderloin with coconut rice and pineapple salsa and a non-sweet cornbread!  YUM!    
  13. "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today released a proposed rule to establish requirements for fermented and hydrolyzed foods, or foods that contain fermented or hydrolyzed ingredients, and bear the “gluten-free” claim. The proposed rule, titled “Gluten-Free Labeling of Fermented or Hydrolyzed Foods,” pertains to foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, pickles, cheese, green olives, vinegar, and FDA regulated beers....."    
  14. Sorry.  That isn't my point.  I just wanted to make sure that, if the doctor says " your antibodies are negative.  No Celiac", that you understand you may actually have Celiac.  Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of docs that have no  knowledge of Celiac.  
  15. A skin prick won't tell you if you have Celiac.  And I have seen a lot of evidence that they aren't very good at diagnosing food allergies, either. But I don't really keep up with that.
