Aloha,

I can't find info to some of the things I consume!

I go on celiac.com they have some things but I'm new at this and a bit parinoid to put anything in my mouth! Thanks Suzanne

Unfortunately, it's a good thing that you're paranoid! We have to be! (I know every time I stop being paranoid, I get glutened! :-) )

You're best bet is to always call the company, of course. Someone has reported that Splenda is gluten-free - the main portion of the product absolutely is (it's just an isomer of table sugar), and they do not appear to use wheat as a filler.

I'm not sure on the tea... What are the ingredients?

Although Splenda is gluten-free, some people here have complained of having symptoms from it; Richard said that everybody (celiacs and non-celiacs) can have reactions from it that seem celiac-like, for example diarrhea....here is this discussion. Oh, by the way, Karen (canadian karen) said that Stevia is gluten-free and she uses it w/o a problem.....I don't know about Yerba Mate, though:

Oh, I forgot to mention that I am ULTRA CRAZY PARNOID.......if anything falls on the counter, no matter how expensive it was, it's contaminated. If I'm scooping ice cream or a parent is scooping for me cause it's hard as a rock, only my fingers can be used to pull it off the spoon. Additionally, I keep my distance from anyone eating a gluten food, and I try to avoid anyone even touching me after they've eaten gluten if they haven't washed their hands (ex. my brother, who often torments me by eating a Ritz cracker and then waving his crumby fingers at me :angry: )

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
