Gluten Free Lasagne Noodles In Canada?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I recently got into a relationship with woman who I care for very much and she has celiac disease. I really would love to cook my lasagne for her, but obviously she can't eat wheat pasta. We have found a few brown rice pasta lasagne noodle manufacturers, but they are horrible.

Does anyone know of a really good gluten free Lasagne noodle? What brand is it? What type? Do you know if they sell or ship to Canada?

Thanks for any help on this,

Paul

I live in BC and I buy Tinkyada lasagna noodles - either at Safeway or our local health food store. Make sure you don't over cook them and no one will even notice they're gluten free.

However, don't drain them in your regular gluten-y colander and make sure all pots & pans are well scrubbed to avoid cross contamination. Enjoy !

I'll second the support for Tinkyada. We buy them at a local independent grocery store. We are in a suburb of Toronto.

Elf's comments about cross-contamination are bang on, as well.

Thanks guys.

I wasn't so much worried about the cross contamination, because I always clean things thuroughly. I just want a noodle that has the same consistancy, texture and taste as a regular wheat pasta noodle.

Any tips on how to cook the noodles so that I can achieve this effect?

Yep, Tinkyada is the one I'd recommend also. They are made in Canada too.

As for how to cook them, the package has cooking instructions. But, I'd think the lasagna noodles would be easier than say spaghetti or elbows, to get right. Simply because lasagna noodles aren't fully cooked in water anyway. Whenever I've made them, I haven't even looked at the instructions. Just get them to that sorta softened, half-cooked stage like you would wheat lasagna. They should turn out great. Like any lasagna, the sauce, cheese and so forth also hide a multitude of sins.

The comments about cross-contamination are quite right. It's practically impossible to get all the gluten off a colander. And whatever you do, don't use wooden utensils.

I use Tinkyada lasagna noodles, too (I'm in Canada). I've found that if I cook the lasagna noodles for just 10 minutes (no longer), they don't get too soft when you bake the lasagna. One thing I found; one time I froze one half of the pre-baked lasagna to eat at a later date; and when I re-heated the frozen lasagna, the noodles did get pretty soft. It was still good, though. But now I just put the other uneaten half in the fridge, and eat the next day.

Also, I have pots that I only use for cooking gluten-free foods in, so there is no chance of cross contamination.

Hey you guys,

I want to thank you for all your suggestions and tips. Now I need one more little piece of help if you could. I've been trying to locate a store that actually sells the Tinkyada brand noodles in my area, but I'm having trouble. I live in the Greater Vancouver Area of BC. Do any of you know of a store where I can buy them. I tried going to Choices Market this morning, but they don't carry the Tinkyada brand.

Thanks for any help,

Paul

Try Whole Foods Market. They have four locations in Vancouver. Click for locations. I would call ahead to make sure they have it before making the trip.

If all else fails, you can mail order from El Peto in Ontario. Not sure if you've ever heard of them; but I mail order things like gluten-free hamburger buns and gluten-free bread from them occasionally. But, they also sell Tinkyada pasta.

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      Welcome, @ModernLifeIsWar! Celiac has over 300 symptoms, but it looks like you have some symptoms that appear a lot in those diagnosed with celiac. I suggest you take these symptoms to your doctor and ask for a GI consult and to get the full blod panel to test for celiac disease. The gold standard is an endoscope, where 4 or more biopsies of the intestines are taken. The caveat is that you must be on a diet with gluten for all tests to be accurate, and you must continue eating gluten until all testing is done.  So, if it were me, I would start eating gluten again and get that referral.  However, you need to make the decision that is best or you.  Edited to Add: Also, since you eat a lot of processed food, your body might be reacting to other things, such ad additives. 
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I don't have any real major stomach issues, however I've had a diet for years very high in gluten consisting of tons of junk food (pizza, cookies, cereal, donuts, etc..).  A few symptoms I have noticed over the years have been: -Migraines (very frequent) -Large increase in eye floaters -Very bad sinus congestion -Very bad anxiety -Semi frequent bouts of diarrhea/runny bowel movements. Not all the time, but it certainly happens more than I feel is normal.   However, in terms of stomach pain I haven't noticed much. I do get very bloated sometimes however, mainly just contributed this to my crappy diet. Anyways, since the beginning of April I've been having a lot of neurological issues and after reading more into gluten intolerance I'm wondering if it couldn't be associated: -Full body tremors ranging from hands, arms, legs, and core. (i.e. I shake a lot when doing stuff with my hands, if I try to do sit ups my whole body will shake, etc..). I've had minor hand tremors in the past but this problem has recently blown to a whole new level -Muscle spasms all over and mild cramping -tingling feelings randomly throughout my  body in all parts including face and head -Shortness of breath -Racing heart rate when doing physical activity (i.e. walking upstairs and I'm a fairly active person) -Minor issues with balance and coordination -Brain fog   I'm going to see a neurologist in 3 weeks, but I decided to give gluten free a try as of two days ago. I've also been taking a lot of important vitamins and nutrients (b12, d, b complex, fish oil, magnesium, etc..). I'd be interested to know if anyone here has experienced similar symptoms (most notably tremors and muscle spasms) and had success switching to gluten free. I've seen anecdotal cases posted, so I'm hoping that maybe this is my issue. Another thing to note is my younger sister has very bad stomach issues. She hasn't seen a Dr about it and can't follow a diet to save her life, but she commonly complains of pain, gas, bloating, nasty bowel movements, etc... after eating out. So I think there is a possible genetic factor here. What would be the best Dr to seek out in helping me diagnose such a thing? Also is it normal to have stomach issues AFTER starting gluten free? Today is my third day and I've had 2 bouts of diarrhea and very loud stomach growling. Possibly from switching from a diet full of sugar and gluten to one with significantly less and gluten free?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
