8 posts in this topic

Hi There!

We recently found out that 2 of our children have Celiac. We are trying to be good and have a gluten-free household.

Could you please give me a list of words of things that contain Gluten in them, but may not be obious to the newbie?

For example, malt. I would have never guessed that.... Please add others...

Thank you for your help~

On this home page there is a list of safe and a list of forgidden. That will give you a good start, but it is overwhelming.

Nini, will post and you can click on her "Newbie Survival Kit", now that's invaluable.

You don't say which country you are in. The Canadian Celiac Ass. has a 'pocket' size dictionary that you can take into the store. It has hundreds of things listed in alphabetical order, and will tell you if they are gluten free or not.

It's a wonderful tool

Gluten is a protien contained in wheat, barley, malt, rye and most oats due to a high rate of cross-contamination.

They key to remaining gluten free is to learn to read lables. It's a tough ride for a while, but it gets better.

Gluten often plays hide and seek, as it can hide in envelope glue, soy sauce, some spices, lipsticks, lotion, shampoos

Here are a few starters:

Vann's waffles (have gluten free variety)

La Choy Soy Sauce

Jiff Peanut Butter

All of Mrs. Dash seasonings are gluten free

McCormick Spieces will list wheat on their ingred. list

Stick to fish, meats, chicken, rice, potatoes, and fresh veggies.

Processed food is to difficult to tackel at the moment.

Gluten free bread is awful, except for Angies (a forum member), but few have her gift.

As I mentioned before, do a members search for "Nini" and click below her signature and you will be able to down load several files that, at this time you can't live without.

Good luck, and feel free to PM me at any time.

I would check on the safe and forbidden lists on this website, as someone else suggested.

Also, there are lists on the net of gluten-free candies and such, if you google something like gluten free candy lists... you can find them... important stuff to know for kids!

School / craft /art supplies are important to know about too... for instance, off the top of my head I know Play-Doh is bad, and so is tempura (or however it's spelled), powdered paint mix.

Crayons are supposed to be okay, and so is real clay and I believe I've read Silly Puddy is okay too. I'm sure there are lists of these children's supplies somewhere that could be googled and found, or possibly someone else here who knows can link you to them from here.

If you have pets... the children need to wash their hands after handling the pets' foods... most of them have gluten in them... I even saw it wheat middlings listed in rabbit chow. Most doggie treats, etc., have gluten in them too. So... these are additional things to keep in mind... that without realizing the potential for something to go into somebody's mouth or even just from being on their hands, could cause some trouble if you weren't aware of it.

- Malt (like you said)

- MODIFIED FOOD STARCH

- Hydolyzed Vegtable Protein

- Textured Vegetable Protein

- Brown Rice Syrup

sometimes (it's hard to be sure unless it specifically says what its made from) :

- Maltodextrin

- Food Starch

- Natural Flavorings

- Artificial Flavorings

All soy sauces have it, most salad dressings that are not clear, many meat seasonings (like teryaki), and most soups and gravies. Also, most candies have gluten. Some candies that doesnt have gluten are reeses, yorks, M+Ms (not all types though!!), mr goodbar. Most gum and carmel have gluten. Most plain chocolate is safe but NOT ALL plain chocolate is gluten free. Also, one would assume that all corn chips are safe...which is not the case. Strangely, some corn chips do have wheat flour

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
