Does Anyone Have Gluten Free List?
0

11 posts in this topic

Hello. I was wondering if anyone had a simple list of food products that are gluten free? A list of foods that I can just go to a grocery store and buy. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now but I still struggle with figuring out what is gluten free and what isn't. I'm to the point now that I am so hungry. I don't know what to eat so I'm not eating much of anything. If anyone knows of just some regular foods I could get that would be extreamly helpful. Thanks so much! Susan

Hi! I have two great links. The first is 42 pages of mainstreams gluten-free foods!

http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf

The second is on

www.celiac.com

Go to "site index" and click on list of gluten-free and forbidden foods.

Be sure to check a list of forbidden ingredients! Very important to know what to avoid as well as what to look for. Good luck and hang in there! It gets easier with practice!

Gloriously gluten-free--Dana

Just about all the produce (not wheatgrass) and meats/veggies that you want! I know, I know, you probably meant packaged/processed foods... But honestly, it's worth the extra time to KNOW they aren't contaminated due to a factory and have better tasting food. (steps down from soap box) And with a bit of practice, cooking from scratch doesn't have to take that long either. I don't do prepackaged stuff, but with the help of my skillet and the bbq, usually don't take longer to cook a meal than half an hour (if I do any actually "cooking" and don't make a cold dish).

I want to thank all of you so much for helping me. I didn't realize how emotional this disease and diet would be for me. I've been on the http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf site for a couple hours reading. I felt an overwhelming releif when I read all the things that I actully can eat, it made me cry. Thank you Dana. Everyone is so nice here. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this site to come to. Susan

Hey Susan, we're all in this together! You guys are the best buddies a celiac disease could ever have! Where else can you talk about loose bowel movements and vanilla extract in the same conversation? Just remember, no question is too "dumb" or too out there to ask.

By the way, if you haven't read in my other posts, Italy tests all kids for celiac disease by age six...and I am so inspired by that that I am determined to make it a part of the regular kindergarten admittance requirement in the US. Seriously! I'll keep you guys posted, but anyone who knows me knows that if I decide to do something I don't take no for an answer. celiac disease has taken a huge toll on my family--both my 11-year old daughter and are are celiac disease--and reading all these posts, day after day, filled with suffering in all shapes and sizes infuriates me that our alleged "best" system in the world is light years behind when it comes to celiac disease. FYI, it takes the average adult celiac disease in Italy 2-3 WEEKS from onset of symptoms to diagnosis. It takes the average American 10-11 YEARS! AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!

We have got to change this. Sorry for the rant. I just get so p/o'd about all the kids in pain, not to mention all of us! Hang in there everybody!

It is interesting to note that the above mentioned list is updated very often and the people that do this do it with the prime interest of helping people with gluten intolerance and not for personal gain on their part. Just from July 04 to September 04 the list went from 49 pages to 51 pages. Although it isn't all that handy to take to the grocery store, it sure is a Godsend for those that need some help in knowing that there are products that can be bought from the regular stores that fit into everyday life.

Susan,

There is also a great list, and constantly being added to, at the Celiac Forum in the Delphi Forums group. Go to www.delphiforums.com and go to Health & Wellness. Select Celiac and walla....it's a great group, too. I've seen many of the people "here" there...so many of us go to so many groups. You learn something new from each of them.

Best of luck and hang in there, it will get easier!!

Also, here's what I do when I get a list. I sit down with a highlighter and find all the things I might use/find in my area and highlight it. Then when I am looking for something specific, it's easy to find. Plus it makes creating my weekly shopping list a little easier when I can just go to a section and look for my yellow marks.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
