Tasterie Boxes

Has anyone tried the Tasterie boxes? https://www.tasterie.com/shop/

You subscribe and get a box each month that contains foods carefully screened for whichever allergens you specify. You can choose Top 8 allergens, dairy, dairy & egg, dairy & soy, egg, gluten / wheat, gluten / wheat / dairy, gluten / wheat / vegan, nut, soy, vegan, or just "healthy" boxes. It's $18 a month for the 'snack' box and $25 a month for the signature box.

 

Here's their allergen statement: Allergen Screening
We follow a rigorous multistep verification process to verify each product and vendor that includes, but is not limited to, vetting of manufacturers to check for allergen free raw materials, manufacturing processes, facility overlaps, supplier analysis, & allergen testing protocols. Our Nut Allergy and Top 8 Allergy TasterieBoxes only use products reported by the manufacturer to be made in nut-free facilities, but these facilities may also process coconut. None of our Nut Allergy and Top 8 Allergy TasterieBoxes contain coconut as a listed ingredient. We want you to feel safe and comfortable, while enjoying delicious new tastes in the comfort of your home, office or on the road. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@tasterie.com.

 

I'm thinking that it would be worth it to get a little surprise box that you know is safe each month, but I wanted to hear from anyone who has tried it!

 

*Found on the Udi's facebook page - with a 50% off code for first box: https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/64131_10151531179249360_1035095181_n.jpg

Haven't tried them.  Are you locked into a certain number you have to purchase? We did a beer of the month club BC (Before Celiac).  It was fun for about 6 months & then we started getting some repeats.  I think it might be a good way to try foods, & if you like them, you could buy more in the future.

Wow! I had no idea about the care packages. I just filled out the contact form. Thanks! :P

On their page, I found out about the annual screenings for at-risk people too. It would be worth the drive to Chicago to get the rest of my family screened, since my insurance won't pay for the screenings! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/screening

According to their site, you can cancel by the end of the month to not receive the following month's shipment (and all future shipments). It does not sound like there is a required minimum number of months. The FAQ page also says that you can skip a month if you're traveling. Sounds flexible.

Ok, we got our first Gluten free box from Tasterie yesterday! It's great!

https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/q71/s480x480/293060_10200626089827642_10301535_n.jpg

 

It contained two full-sized Pamela's mixes -- one for brownies and one for oatmeal cookies, a full sized Bob's Red Mill thick cut gluten free rolled oats, Udi's chocolate chip granola bars, and single servings of Chebe pizza crust mix, wild riceworks chips, and Way Better blackbean chips. Definitely worth the cost of the box. We made the oatmeal cookies this morning. The mix calls for one stick of butter and one egg (or their dairy / egg-free equivalents) and it made about 20 good sized cookies. They are soft and delicious!

 

The Way Better chips taste great and are sprouted grain, non GMO products. I can't wait to try the rest of the items in the box.

 

First round, definitely worth the $25 (free shipping). Even if we could get these products here (and we can't), we would spend more than that just on the oats, mixes, and bars. Oh, and there were coupons!

    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
