      Talked to them last Friday
      about the Pronamel Gentle Whitening
      iso-active foam in the can.
      They confirmed that it is also
      gluten free.

      (The other iso-active versions carry the
      CC caution.)

      Try here:

      But as others have said lists change all the time.

      Some mfg. do not require their suppliers to check

      for gluten like Kraft does.

      Some only list the required allergens but ignore

      things like soy (which may or may not have gluten).

      Some admit that CC may occur,others won't discuss it.

      (Like walking through a minefield blindfolded but you have to try. )

      Celiac Disease Makes It To Dear Abby
      This was part of a thread about families accommodating (or not)
      the vegan tastes of some family members.However,this family host
      refused to accommodate the needs (not preferences) of a 9 year
      old child...way to go:

      Go figure.

      I am beginning to wonder about that,too.
      All shelled peanuts around here carry a cc warning
      except Planter's.Have had "funnies" in the past and have
      called Kraft twice;both times they assured that if
      there was,it would be on the label,etc.
      But yesterday had the worst spell since before
      being diagnosed...really bad...and have narrowed it
      down to the Planter's.Maybe they didn't clean up
      well enough after a run,who knows?
      From now on,unshelled nuts only.
      Gluten free is so hit and miss... .

      You ask a very good question.
      The ones that are shelled *may* have allergen
      info on the package;all the Walmart ones do
      for example (and all show wheat in them).
      I use Planter's since they are owned by
      Kraft and they are the only ones
      around here that don't show wheat
      Still,you wonder;have talked to Kraft
      twice and they say they are OK,look on the can,etc.
      Probably the best thing is to shell them yourself...
      easy for peanuts,maybe not for almonds.

      "so far a little improvement"

      Hang in will get better
      but it will take a month or so,with
      older people longer.
      But it will come.... .
      One thing to watch for is weight
      gain,as your absorption comes back.
      Take care!

      This is the list they e-mailed me.
      Suggest that you call them at
      (979) 836-7977...they recently came
      out with a couple new ones not on
      the "latest" list;called them and
      got the info.
      They are nice people and will be
      glad to help.

      Please look at it from the standpoint of what you're getting,not losing.
      I was diagnosed as Type 2 diabetic in 1986 and "gave up" sugar
      (refined white and brown).Did not go on insulin until last year,
      due to age and celiac recovery weight gain.People used to tell me
      they just couldn't "give up" sugar...would ask them if they
      could "give up" kidney failure,heart trouble,blindness,etc.
      It seems that the older you are the harder it is,and that's
      understandable.IMO it has to do with acceptance...this is probably
      why AA makes their folks get up and say "My name is so and so
      and I'm an alcoholic".
      Celiac is unfortunately far worse than diabetes IMO.We are
      talking about the destruction of the small intestine,cancer and
      a lot more bad things here,not just a sugar spike.
      Please look upon gluten as poison...that's how I see it (and sugar).
      Place it on your no-no list and put safe things on your good list.
      And,as the Apostle Paul said,look to the future and forget the past.
      There are many wonderful folks here and you're not the only one
      in this fix.There are more workarounds today than ever-
      you just have to find them.
      My concern is also for your children since this stuff is passed on...
      they could have the gene and it has not fully kicked in yet.
      The more I learn,it seems that too much gluten is not good
      for anyone.
      But please note,your feelings are completely normal-and
      you're not alone.All of us recall the good old days,but
      they must remain the old days.
      Best Regards...

      Thanks to all of you for your comments.
      I was a bit too sensitive re: Dove and their
      CC policy;they did all they had to do and
      more than many do.
      After two years of gluten-free living it appears that
      the challenge is not in avoiding the obvious
      things,but in trying to avoid the CC ones.
      Sometimes it's "mission impossible".

      Dove Chocolate
      Talked to them today about their sugar-free silky peanut butter
      candy.Their phone number leads to a very nice setup where they
      provide allergy info including gluten;turns out that all Dove
      candy is OK,according to their phone setup.
      But... this particular item was not mentioned so talked to
      a rep ;turns out that while all the candy is fine as to ingredients
      it is made on lines that might expose it to CC.
      So it could be contaminated.....or not.
      Had a nice talk and "educated" the rep to the fact that the
      product being "gluten-free" is not enough;it must also be free
      of CC,too or else it is not "gluten-free";we really can't afford
      being gluten testers.
      It is sad how a company would go to all this trouble and fuss
      and yet not know this.
      The rep is now aware that a "little" gluten does as much harm
      as a "lot" of it.
