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.)

http://www.celiac.com/categories/Safe-Glut...3B-Ingredients/

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.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • 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.
