I drove 2 hours to get there, since there only one city in Louisiana that has one. When I walked in I swear I was in gluten-free heaven!! They even had gluten-free mac and cheese, all ready made bread, PIZZA, cereal, cookies, crackers, omg you name it. My husband and I decided that we will go once a month just to shop. Who ever told me about this place I call heaven a big thank you from Sabastian. I even got him some noodles that he LOVES to slirp up. If you could have seen the look on his face when his daily snack wasnt the same old rice crackers that is all I could find. He LOVED them. So big thank you from Sabastian and a happy mommy!!!

Wonderful! Enjoy! Just beware that you can get fat on that stuff if you enjoy too much. That's what happened to me.

Whole Foods has a Whole Foods Generic Brand (365) cereal called Honey Frosted Flakes that are Gluten Free and fabulous. It's the only cereal I eat. If you buy a case (12), you get 10% off. I don't know if Sebastian is too young for sweetened cereal like that, but just thought you might want to know about it.

Good luck. Kim.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm on a business trip in Detroit, and barely made it to the Whole Foods in Troy after picking up my rental car last night, but was so happy to have a store like that be such a large chain that I can fly four hours and still KNOW that I'll be able to get gluten-free pasta, and gluten-free cereal, and other stuff I get at home that I know to be gluten-free. (Though, it amuses me to walk into grocery stores across the country and see California produce. :-) )

I love Whole Foods! I have never talked to a clerk that didn't know what I was talking about when I asked about a particular gluten-free item. They always recommend asking for a special purchase if they don't carry it. I like their produce also because there is such a variety of organic and often times it is cheaper than the local stores and produce stands.

I bought some coffee beans there and half the price went directly to a local enviornmental group.

You might ask about gluten-free cooking classes there. Our store has classes, haven't seen a gluten-free one yet but plan to ask when I have the time.

Just curious, where is the store in LA? I am visiting family in Mississippi right now and might drive down there if it's not too far.

My girlfriend took me to whole foods when I was visiting and I thought I had died and gone to food heaven. LOL That was when I was just into whole foods cooking. Now that I might have celiac it's nice to know they have gluten-free foods. I was in there a week ago. I see that Molly is in San Mateo. I go to the one on Stevens Creek by De Anza college. Too bad I live 3 hours a way. They have no plans on putting one closer. I e-mailed them a few years ago and found that out. My mother lives in Santa Clara and my hubby works down there and stays at her house. I'm also going to an allergist in Sunnyvale which gives me a reason for comming down. We live in Sonora. Comming down I always stop at whole foods. My daughter and I have this ritual of getting a smoothie there each time we come. Hugs, Carol B

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I haven’t found any large scale studies on this, but only a handful of individual case reports suggesting that in rare cases giardia can temporarily mimic celiac (both the serology & villous atrophy) until it is treated.   I think this is a  complex matter as giardia effects patients differently (most are asymptomatic whilst others suffer from chronic symptoms including malabsorption) for reasons that may not be well understood. In my case - My GI agrees that Giardia can directly cause villous atrophy that cannot be distinguished from Celiac.  As the healing of the villi can be a slow process, I will schedule a repeat endoscopy 6-12 months after my giardia was treated.   Ttg antibodies can also take 6-12+months to completely normalise, especially if the starting levels are high. 6 months would have elapsed at the end of this month, so will schedule a repeat test, hoping for a normal Ttg result to prove the theory.   I have decided to remain on a normal gluten diet until it can be proven that I’m a celiac and not just suffering from a giardia infection.  I have reason to be optimistic as my Gliadin IgA levels are negative (not iga deficient) and also given the sharp decrease in ttg levels 4 weeks after giardia was treated.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      It took all of 3 years before ALL of my symptoms resolved and it was the neuro ones that were the last to go.  If you have been careful about your diet, then you may not be getting glutened as much as you think.  It sounds like you have been careful because you are questioning things you should question to get clarification on.  I am sure if you were doubtful, you would refrain from eating something until you know for sure. Neuro symptoms can last for much longer than other symptoms.  Please be patient because my last neuro symptom was the one that took 3 years.  Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies?  The B vitamins are important for neuro health, especially B12.
    • Week late aftershock!?
      I had a similar problem, I was glutened after a meal out at the beginning of April and am still experiencing problems, obviously not as bad now, but bad enough.  I have also become intolerant to  xanthan gum since, which cuts down the foods I can eat even more. I'm already intolerant to dairy, soya, and a whole lot of other stuff.  Cyclinglady is right about the auto-immune disorders, and I've noticed I have similar problems to her.  I too, eat easy to digest foods until the glutening symptoms pass. The sinus infection might also be a reaction to the glutening, it effects people in different ways.

      Thanks, I'll check out the information in the link. Do you remember how long you were on a gluten-free diet before your vertigo disappeared? I have been on the diet for 2 years, but I might be glutened from time to time since I am not an expert food label reader. My dizziness still persists.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
