      Bürgen® gluten-free bread is a NZ product that's been available for years. Currently, there is only the three types, but mine like  it better than their previous bread-of-choice.
      Only the specific gluten-free manufacturers have their products in the Health Section. Most of the product, that happens to be gluten-free, is spread throughout the supermarket. For example, gluten-free products like San Remo Pasta, Carmen's Muesli Bars, Macro flours, Changs Rice Noodles, Kikkoman Soy Sauce, Select White corn tortillas, etc are all located in their respective product aisles. Even, gluten-free bread is in with it's glutenous counterparts.

      Coeliac disease is only part of the wider picture.
      Gluten is an allergen. A product with less that 20ppm will be labelled "gluten-free" up until they have an anaphylaxic fatality. 
      Besides, they would have to legislate a change in the "Truth in Labelling" laws/regulations. You cannot say it it "gluten-free", if, by it's very definition, it is not ..

      You would be better off posing your questions to your national Coeliac Society. They will be able to tell you definitely what paperwork/diagnoses you are required to present NHS. 
      Prescriptions for gluten-free foods are specific to UK - most other countries do not provide them for coeliacs ..

      It is a chocolate flavoured milk ..... Coco Pops® Chocolatey Liquid Breakfast contains milk, sugar, vegetable fibre (inulin), cocoa, flavours, stabilisers, vitamins & minerals  - no rice bubbles at all ... Inulin is similar to psyllium as it provides soluble dietary fibre. The product is gluten free with only milk listed as an allergen.

      Failed fruitcake is crumbled with melted dark chocolate, rolled into balls, drizzled with white chocolate, and served as Fruitcake Truffles!!
      Rich Fruit Cake
      450g sultanas ...... 450g currants
      125g raisins ......... 50g glacé cherries
      175g mixed peel .. 125g blanched almonds
      30 ml treacle ........ 150 ml brandy*
      350g butter ........... 350g brown sugar
      6 eggs
      450g plain gluten-free flour 2 1/4 ts xanthan gum
      Pinch of salt ......... 5ml mixed spice
      Soak the fruit in booze with treacle.
      * choose: sherry, port, brandy, rum
      Preheat oven to 140°C. Grease a 20cm square tin, then line with greaseproof or baking paper.
      Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
      Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
      Add the soaked fruit, and then the almonds. Stir well.
      Sift the flour, gum and mixed spice
      Fold into the fruit mixture with a large metal spoon.
      Spread the batter into the tin - leaving no gaps, but not packing it in too firmly.
      Bake 140°C 4 hours. Check if done.
      Remove and douse with extra alcohol.
      Fold the upstanding liner paper down - covering any gap on the top with a doubled sheet of paper.
      Wrap pan in a clean fluffy bath towel. When the cake is cold, remove from the tin.
      Leaving the lining - and topper - intact, wrap in foil.
      Either wrap in plastic or store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. If it is very hot, keep in refridgerator.

      REESE'S Peanut Butter Trees Ingredients

      Peanuts, Milk Chocolate (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Chocolate, Nonfat Milk, Milk Fat, Lactose, and Soy Lecithin, PGPR, Emulsifier), Sugar, Dextrose, Chocolate, Nonfat Milk, Contain 2% or Less of: Vegetable Oil (Cocoa Butter, Palm, Shea, Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil), Salt, Whey (Milk), Milk Fat, Soy Lecithin, TBHQ (Preservative), Vanillin, Artificial Flavor.

      Purely guessing: I would say the dextrose - nothing else contains gluten .. unless it is manufactured in a gluten facitity/uses gluten starch to stop it sticking in/on the machinery/contaminated by not being separated ..
      ... If they say it is there, you can only accept it ..

    13. auzzi added a post in a topic Gluten-Free Apple Cake Conversion Requested   

      Try using a gluten-free all-purpose flour that contains xanthan or guar gum. A 1:1 substitution would be fine.

      Once you stir the flour/ salt/cinnamon/soda into the batter, look at it. Simplistically-speaking, it should be the consistency of any other cake batter. If it looks a bit too stiff, add 2-4 tablespoons milk/water to loosen it up. It has enough eggs, so you shouldn't need to add any more.

      It looks like a good recipe...

    15. auzzi added a post in a topic Wrigley's Gum- Gluten-Free?   

      This is the most important part, with regards to international manufacturers:

      "...ingredients and formulas may vary between regions..."

      I doubt that chewing gum made in Australia would be exported ..

      Modern technology currently can test gluten levels of more than 3 ppm (mg/kg). To qualify as "gluten-free" in Australia & New Zealand, the product in question must contain ‘no detectable gluten’ [be less than 3pmm], or be naturally-gluten free.

      Some wheat products - glucose syrup, Caramel colour (150) and Dextrose - are so highly processed, that they are gluten free. They are tested.

      By Australian & New Zealand Law, as they originate from wheat, this must be indicated on the label in bold, but as they are "gluten free", they are not listed as as allergen.
