No-gluten / No-dairy Shopping Guide?
0

13 posts in this topic

And is there any kind of 'shopping guide' as to what to stay away from, as far as all gluten and/or dairy ingredients?

So, if I am looking at something and something pops up I am not sure about, I can just open my little pocket guide in my purse and see?

Any ideas on that?

And where to get it, if it does exist?

THANKS!!!!

(and if it is cheap enough for me to buy right now)

I know! It is rediculous!!!

I have a pad of paper I have to carry around with me everywhere, and I want a little pocket guide or something, so I don't look like an IDIOT...

Well, the main reason is so I don't get glutenized, but the idiot thing works too. :P

haha

When I first went gluten free I got the gluten free one (they didn't have the others at the time). It helped me. I still looked at the ingredients but the book helped me find brands and in a way you could say backed me up when I thought it was gluten free. I still look at it off and on when I am getting/looking for something new that I haven't gotten before.

They have an alert page on their site where they try to make a note if something isn't safe anymore so you can mark it off in your book.

Hope this helped some. GOOD LUCK

Is it ingredients as well as foods, though?

The book is about 6.5"x4.5"x1"

It doesn't give ingredients.

In the book you can look up say Salad Dressing it will then list different companies and under each company it will list their gluten free items. It will not have ALL companies that are out there but a decent amount.

There are at least two other main guides, I don't know both of them off hand (haven't used them) but one is Triumph. I know someone commented about them recent so you might be able to do a search on here.

Good Luck. Hope you can find something that works for you =)

Thank you, because my hardest problem now is with the ingredient listings...

Thank you so much for asking this question. I did not know it existed. I am trying to order but they are sold out of the gluten/dairy free guide and it won't take my order for the gluten/dairy/ soy free guide. It looks like a great idea.

I've found some lists online that have helped me. I think it'd be possible for you to copy and paste the lists into a Word file and print in a small font. Better than nothing... :)

http://glutenfreeingredients.com/ (This website has several lists that might help! Click on the "Guide" tab.)

Does anyone know if a thread has been started with links to helpful sites? I have bookmarked several on my computer and would love to share with everyone!

Good luck to us all!

Would it work for here in the USA?

In a word, yes.

When you drill down to specific ingredients there are no differences between the US and Canada.

The CCA has very recently updated the guide to the third edition. I am still working from the second edition.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
