Anybody ordered flours, starches, etc. from www.bulkfoods.com? They have some pretty good prices and they ship in 48 states for @$5.00 an order no matter the weight. Being one that really bakes gluten-free, I would love to use this site, but was curious about cross-contamination.

Could be a good resource, but unsure about the gluten-free issue. I just sent the company an email, but I thought I would ask you guys as well.

Did you hear back from the company? I'd be interested in that website as well.

Thanks!

Not a word. But, I may order one thing and give it a try. I'll post if I do.

Have you tried buying rice and tapioca flours at an Asian market? I haven't, but my Diet mentor provided by my local Celiac Sprue charter swears by hers. She pays about $0.89/pound. That beats the $3.00 plus per bag I paid for at Whole Foods!

I bake for my 11 yo grandson and have used Asian rice flour and tapioca & potato starch for years without any problem. It saves a great deal of money. All the products are in individual packages (usually 1 lb), which I think is safer than bulk items, which can often be found in health food stores. Have not had a problem with the Asian products. Hope this helps you.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
