What I'm trying to say is, if you are in the US, its illegal to " hide " wheat. If they use an anti- caking ingredient it would say anti- caking ( wheat). However, because wheat gets sticky when wet, it makes a horrible anti- caking ingredient.

Oh okay, gotcha!! I think I just look at all of the ingredients and get overwhelmed! I know I'll get it, it will just take time!

Water, probiotics, gas meds, imodium, etc. whatever it takes...

I wonder if Benedryl would help the itching?! I will definitely be popping some Imodium in the morning though!

And if you can stand it, put ice packs on the itchy spots. That does help.

I think anything would be better than the itching!

Oh poor thing! Been there, done that. I got glutened last week from a restaurant salad that must have CC'd me. The lesson is I still can't eat in restaurants without taking a big risk.

 

You will get to the point where you read EVERY label and don't even think twice about it. My friends all know now to hand me the can or package before they feed me lol....

I hope my family and friends get to that point as well. I have a very supportive husband but I get the feeling he thinks I'm being dramatic. I wish I could find a good documentary for him to watch so he can understand it a little better!

 

I'm terrified to eat in restaurants, there is one here in town that has a dedicated cookware and fryers. The owners have a child with Celiac.
