Maltodextrin is generally safe. :)

It sounds like it has WRBO in it, but it doesn't. I believe it's derived from corn.

hmmm. i have always been told to stay away from anything with "malt" or "dextrose" since you cannot be sure what the base ingredient is...

perhaps i can relax this rule?? i will do some reading about this.

thanks for the info -- and i will post when i hear back from starbucks re: CBB.

Maltodextrin is ok. I picked up a subscription to the Gluten Intolerance Group Magazine and it has been very useful. Turns out a lot of stuff I initially cut were ok because of the new labeling guidelines and rules on how things are defined. Their web site is www.gluten.net, maybe you can get some back issues that talk about the new labels. The new FDA guideline for labels made a big difference, but they only had to start printing them January 1, they are still using the old stock of labels or some of the food is older so watch out for that. Usually you can tell because it will list milk or soy as an ingredient but not have the comment "contains: Milk/Soy". Bob's Red Mill makes a good chocolate cake mix, and make home made icing with cocoa from the recipe on the container. One major brand of icing has gluten the other has soy, so that is a problem if you can't tolerate soy too. I switched to Lactate milk because when you are first diagnosised you are going to be lactose intolerant too (lactase is made at the ends of the villi which are damaged). You may be able to tolerate it better later, but make get similar symptoms from milk as you do from gluten initially. I just started to be able to eat cheese after about 8 months gluten-free. Everyone at work ate the cake and had no idea it was gluten free.

When I used to go to Starbucks, they were very nice about letting me read the labels on their syrups & such. I used to keep it simple & get lattes most of the time... then I got an espresso maker & now I make my own. It's not quite as tasty, true, but I haven't made myself sick yet!

On cakes:

I'm very fond of flourless chocolate cake. Most recipes have a token 2tbs. of flour that you can just leave out altogether. And you can dust the pan with cocoa instead of flour. I also love the traditional Spanish Almond Cake, which is made without flour. Of course, none of these have that wonderful, fluffy "birthday cake" texture, but they are the cakes I've managed to cook successfully. I'm still trying to get the hang of baking with alternative flours...

Jamba juice has a list of gluten free items. Everything by ingredient, very through. Surprisingly there soy milk is not gluten free. Whey protein is.

Just a head's up folks! Except for the post today - the product info on this thread is almost 7 years old. That is a long time for a product. Ingredients may have changed.

    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
