Tesco Brand

I notice they label allergens, but I just want to make sure this is a trustworthy brand. I just bought some Tesco sweet and sour sauce and I don't see any obvious sources of gluten. It doesn't list gluten on the label under the allergens section either.

I assume it's safe, but since I'm currently so surrounded by Tescos I want to make sure. :) Thanks.

Hi Mango!! :D .... I take it you're in Britain somewhere......

I do nearly ALL my food shopping @ Tesco's, they ARE pretty good for labelling

My advice is to (just to make sure) always read the ingredient list AS well as the allergen box

Enjoy!! :D

Hi Nikki! I'm in Prague...but I think the Tesco products here are the same (at least that's my guess since the ingredients are in English - often covered up with a Czech sticker - which drives me nuts) - but anyhow..thanks for the info! :D I like their organic stuff - mainly because the labels are easy to read and it's really inexpensive. :)

Hi I'm Katy and I've just recently found out my boyfriend can't eat gluten. We live in norfolk in the UK.

I'm vegetarian and I'm finding it really hard not to cook two seperate meals every night. I'm finding it especially hard not having real pasta, as I used to live on it. The gluten free stuff at Tesco and Sainsburys is awful. Where can I get a fairly nice substitute?

Actually I find the Tesco pasta one of my favourites!! :huh:

If you can get hold of the Italian make 'Schar' that is supposed to be the best (maybe Holland & Barrett??)

......I must admit I don't tend to bother with spaghetti anymore (sticks together :rolleyes: ) - but have good success' with spirals (fusilli)

I also rinse it with boiling water which cuts down on its 'stickyness'

I have found that after many years gluten free your tastes do change - and things that I also thought were 'disgusting' now don't taste too bad to me :lol: (but also you get better at making your food taste good ;) )

I would assume that Tesco products are the same (almost) everywhere and if I am abroad I definitely rather shop for the brand that I know are safe. Of course a double check on the ingredients list is a must!

Hello to my UK Friends

I returned from the UK after a month long trip all of it in England the southern parts Cotswold to Ipswich. The UK celiac society puts out a book every year listing the gluten free food brands that are safe and it updates it on their website. They also have an email address where your can ask them questions. I think they also have a phone number.

Their website will also lead you to local groups. They will give you any information on meetings or other activities and they sometimes have recommendations from people in the area about eating establishments.

I found them quite useful. There was a great tearoom in Morton in Marsh that served gluten-free food. I stayed mostly in places where I did my own cooking or just had the vegetables at restaurants or pubs.

I must say you folks are a lot further ahead in Celiac awareness than we are in the US. I ran into many people who were Celiacs or knew of one. Most restaurants were very aware of food issues.

Actually the directory lists products from companies that PAY which the companies say are gluten-free.

CUK does no checking ... or verification however they have trademarked the gluten-free symbol so that companies can't use it without paying.

oops forgot to say.....

You need to check labels at ALL levels.... don't rely on one.. check all the small print.

    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
