The following items may or may not contain gluten depending on where and how they are made, and it is sometimes necessary to check with the manufacturer to find out:
Caramel Color1, 3
Caramel Flavoring1, 3
Dry Roasted Nuts4
food Starch1, 4
Food Starch Modified1, 4
Hydrolyzed Plant Protein4
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein4
Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate4
Modified Food Starch1, 4
Modified Starch1, 4
Soy Sauce Solids4
1) If this ingredient is made in North America it is likely to be gluten-free.
3) The problem with caramel color is it may or may not contain gluten depending on how it is manufactured. In the USA caramel color must conform with the FDA standard of identity from 21CFR CH.1. This statute says: the color additive caramel is the dark-brown liquid or solid material resulting from the carefully controlled heat treatment of the following food-grade carbohydrates: Dextrose (corn sugar), invert sugar, lactose (milk sugar), malt syrup (usually from barley malt), molasses (from cane), starch hydrolysates and fractions thereof (can include wheat), sucrose (cane or beet). Also, acids, alkalis and salts are listed as additives which may be employed to assist the caramelization process.
4) Can utilize a gluten-containing grain or by-product in the manufacturing process, or as an ingredient.
5) Most celiac organizations in the USA and Canada do not believe that wheat starch is safe for celiacs. In Europe, however, Codex Alimentarius Quality wheat starch is considered acceptable in the celiac diet by most doctors and celiac organizations. This is a higher quality of wheat starch than is generally available in the USA or Canada.
6) According to 21 C.F.R. S 101,22(a)(3): [t]he terns natural flavor or natural flavoring means the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof. Whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.
7) Dextrin is an incompletely hydrolyzed starch. It is prepared by dry heating corn, waxy maize, waxy milo, potato, arrowroot, WHEAT, rice, tapioca, or sago starches, or by dry heating the starches after: (1) Treatment with safe and suitable alkalis, acids, or pH control agents and (2) drying the acid or alkali treated starch. (1) Therefore, unless you know the source, you must avoid dextrin.

That is about the worst diet I think you could eat right there!! At least your here looking for help. No matter your income you have to fix what you eat. Your on the right track with fruits and veggies. At in some rice, beans and you'll improve a ton. I have no comment on where your considering taking your vitamins. Good Luck and I hope you can find a job!
I did not see one. I have always been very aware and knowledgable of what I eat from a health side of things. When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I spent a a solid month almost day and night searching and learning every thing I could from the WWW and bought a few books, and magazines. I still continuously read about it. I'll admit I was already on a rather low carb diet and eliminating gluten for me was not a very dramatic thing. My health improved almost the day I stopped eating gluten, I'm quite happy not eating things that make me feel bad. I also love to cook and I'm a total 'foody.' There is nothing I really miss form my strict Celiac Diet.
The leaky roof analogy above is a so on point. Black mould - Cancer or other nasty health issues.
Yes sensitivity varies huge from person to person. It's not the immediate effects of being glutened that are a major concern if you are not that sensitive, it's the long term negative effects on your body, it's BAD for you! It does not have to cost any more. No you do not have to consume gluten to correct low blood sugar.
Knowledge is key, read read read inform your self. Or as I stated earlier seek the advice of professionals if your over whelmed. Good Luck- it's not really that big of a deal on becoming educated on your new diet and you'll be healthier.
If you enjoy being sick and getting sicker sure just keep eating gluten.
Really it's not that hard to eliminate from your diet? Why stress out about it, do it and you'll feel better. If you really don't know much about food, diet, ingredients of food, what contains gluten or not and your totally lost, contact a nutritionist or dietician or some one along those lines familiar with Celiac. If you don't want to do that, keep reading as much as you can and inform yourself calm down and do it. Every thing you need for a better gluten free lifestyle is a search away....
I just ate New York fries, not sitting so well. I never eat deep fried, so maybe that is it but I looked it up from NY fries web site:
I have celiac disease. Can I eat your product?
We use no coatings or preservatives in our fries, and we cook our potatoes in 100% pure sunflower oil, so technically we do not have any gluten in our fries. However, there is gluten present in our stores in our seasonings on the front counter and in our sauces, so there is a small chance of cross contamination.
I try to stay away from both as you don't really know whats in Natural Flavours, Natural Flavourings totally glutenates me. Specifically Costco (Kirkland) Diet Ice Tea- it has Natural Flavorings listed and it hits me hard.
Natural Flavours is in so many things, mostly processed foods, candy and snacks. I try and stay away but never have had any bad (noticeable) results, I cave in on some candy once and a while. I always now avoid Natural Flavourings.
Are they the same or different? Anyone else get hit by Natural Flavorings?
As mentioned above vitamin B12 I go for injections once a month at a doctor, it helps a ton. As it starts wearing down I get fuzzy head and know it's time for a shot.
(blood tests showed B12 very low) Hopefully as I recover they will be not needed.
