Csa Product Listing
Posted 06 June 2004 - 05:01 AM
I have the CSA (Celiac Sprue Association) Product Listing. They put one out every fall and have an 800 number to call to find out any updates or if you have questions.
It really takes all of the mystery out of what is and isn't gluten-free because, unlike me trying to call the manufacturer to find out if it's gluten-free, I might just talk to someone who is unknowlegeable, looks at the label to find "gluten", doesn't see it and thinks, 'yeah, it's gluten-free'. But with the CSA, they know exactly what to ask, who to ask, and they warn them that the info they give must be correct (law suits, etc.). The only drawback is that, because of liability and the fact that some man. change they way the make stuff, some companies who do make gluten-free products (like Sunsweet) aren't in the listing. But there are plenty who are, and it's definately comforting to know someone else has aleady done the research for me (I'm sick of calling everyone!)
I didn't see anthing here about it and thought I'd let everyone know. I bring it with me to the supermarket so I know exactly what to buy. It's like my bible!

They are very friendly and helpful there - very down to earth too.

I don't want to get the other one from CSA, since it would also include the products that contain dairy ingredients. Too much sorting through products and ingredients to be worth my while, but would be a great help to me if we can ever have dairy again!!
Thanks for postin ght information Donna.
