Without thinking, I grabbed a big spoonful of cottage cheese from company cafeteria.  Has anyone heard of a cottage cheese with gluten?  I'd love to eat it (already ate a spoonful before I remembered "that was dumb")  I've only been gluten-free (for celiac) about six weeks.  i think it's 1% or 2% if that helps.

 

Thanks.

Never seen gluten in plain cottage cheese. Wouldn't eat off a cafeteria/ salad bar. That is likely to be cc'd when people drop their roll and pick it out or use the spoon from the croutons in something else, etc. it would be safest for you, especially in the first few months, to bring your own food. After you have had time to heal, you can take the chance of eating there.

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

Thanks - just to follow up, the cottage cheese is quite far from everything else, so it seemed highly unlikely, but yes - you are right.  The cafeteria manager called me back and read me the ingredients, so I feel a bit better about it. Funny, I only got it to supplement the lunch I did bring!

 

I'm trying to set up a meeting with our cafeteria management to see what we can do to get me (and possibly others) some options.

 

Thanks again.

There are many, many possible additives. Most are gluten-free. I have never seen cottage cheese that had added gluten. CC is the concern here from the salad bar.

I am a college student and have to eat from the buffet and salad bar in the dining halls. Does this mean that I will constantly be exposed to gluten regardless of what I eat?

Probably.

You need to take your diagnosis ( get a note from your doctor) and go to the Student Disabilities office and insist on safe food if you must pay for it.
