  1. Hi - I wonder if anyone can tell me if they safely eat TJ's Cottage Cheese.  My mom bought me a container, and I hate to waste it.  I checked the TJ's gluten-free list, and it says that all TJ branded dairy is safe (except for certain block cheeses), but I know that TJ's sometimes has CC issues and their list isn't that reliable.   Thanks.   
  2. Before my diagnosis, this was by far one of my favorite snacks -- I loved it even more than ice cream!  When I scanned it with my Shopwell app, it said that it was NOT gluten free due to "modified food starch" on the ingredient list, so I've been afraid to try it.   There was no info on Axelrod's website, and I've e-mailed them, but I bought some before scanning (stupid, I know), so I'd love to see if anyone knows for sure if it's starch from a different source and safe, so I don't have to throw it out.  I would LOVE to be able to eat this again.  It's just the right fat/curd level, and I'm fussy about cottage cheese.   Thanks!
  3. I have a Pret a Manger near my office and frequently get a salad from there for lunch.  The Chicken and Avocado salad is listed on the website as gluten-free and I've never had a problem with it.     I wanted to get something new and went on their site and saw that the Cobb Salad is listed as Gluten-Free, but it has Blue Cheese on it.  I'm still relatively new at this, and I know sometimes blue cheese can be gluten-free, but isn't it wrong to list this salad as gluten-free?     I'm wondering if I should e-mail the company.  Would you?
  4. I have not tried these or seen them, except my friend posted a pic on FB of her bag & the words on the side that say gluten-free. It appears Pepperidge Farms is making Bake Goldfish Puffs in 3 flavors and they are gluten-free. This is the same friend who told me about the Glutino poptarts so her taste udis have a good track record. I couldn't find any info on the P farms website so I have no idea of the ingredients or manufacturing practices or GMOs or if they are made from real goldfish!
  5. For those newish celiacs with secondary lactose intolerance, like me, I wanted to give a shout-out of encouragement.   When I was first diagnosed in October 2012, one of the hardest pills to swallow was my secondary lactose intolerance. I couldn't imagine living without dairy. I read on this forum and many others that secondary lactose intolerance often went away in 6 months to 2 years. I banked on it. I prayed for it.   Every once in a while I'd try to a small milk chocolate candy or a small piece of cheese, but I always felt nauseous a short time later.   Until 5 and 1/2 months passed. Then I had a small amount of cheddar cheese on my eggs. No problem. I tried shredded cheddar on my potato fine. I've not yet experimented with REAL milk yet, or ice cream, but being able to add cheese to my daily bowl of rice has made me happy. I feared, after the first couple of months, that I had lost dairy forever. Now I'm hopeful one day to glug a big glass of REAL milk again, and dive into some ice cream.   Hang in there, I guess, is the message. I've received so much support from these forums, I wanted to share this encouragement with others.
  6. I had a really busy week last week and went for Annie's gluten free burritos, both the cheddar and bean and rice, and the gluten free macaroni and cheese. I checked the label many times because I have mixed them up in the past so I'm sure I bought the gluten free variety, but each day I ate one of these products I became more and more sick. I eliminated any type of cross contamination on my part and am very careful about what I eat. I haven't been that sick since before I was diagnosed when I was eating gluten all day everyday. I saw on a few other websites other people have gotten sick off the Annie's gluten free macaroni and cheese too. Has anyone else had any problems? Maybe I overlooked something, but at this point I'm scared to trust their gluten-free labels.
  7. Hello, I am quite unexperienced about gluten-free diet abroad and I am travelling to Paris this weekend for 5 days. I live in Turkey and it is quite a "wheat based" country unfortunately. Here, I need to be carefull about local wines, and fresh cheese (don't know what they refer to with 'fresh' exactly) and even Turkish coffee due to the cc risks during packaging. It would be great if you could give me some advice about the safe foods in Europe. Can I trust every cheese and even cream cheese? Are all the coffees (like filter coffee, cappuccinos or mochas) ok to have?(I believe they should be unflavoured right?) Can I enjoy French wines or should I ask about their production process? Thank you all in advance!
  8. Does anyone know if Kroger - Low Moisture Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese - Finely Shredded is gluten free ? I want to make pizza, I already have the gluten free crust and pepperoni and this cheese was in the fridge.
  9. So I went off cheese for 3 months to let my intestine heal. I tried a little bit of Swiss cheese yesterday for the first time and had no symptoms. So I tried a little cheddar on a taco and I had a bit of tummy rumbles a few hours later but that was it. I hope this means I can have a little bit of dairy now and then again. I could easily have gone without the cheddar and I'm actually quite used to not eating any dairy now, but I do miss an occasional piece of really good cheese. Anyone else go back to dairy after being dairy-free? Any suggestions for me?
