How Cool Is This?!

This is a celiac game...reading labels. :lol: Not something we would need, but maybe good for kids who are just learning. There is one mistake. On one of the foods it says that you need to check maltodextrin for the source--really, it's always gluten-free in the US unless it says wheat in front of it, but hey!

:D:P:lol:

:lol:

HA! Wouldn't that just be convenient! A portable device that scans the bar code or something and says "yes! gluten free" or "no! not for you" :D

Wait... maltodextrin in foods manufactured in the U.S. are always gluten-free??

yes... apparently, if there is wheat they won't hide it (unlike Canada)

Maltodextrin in foods in the U.S. is NOT always gluten-free, but if it's made from the manufacturer is by law required to clearly state that. Occasionally you will see "wheat maltodextrin" or "maltodextrin (wheat)". Some maltodextrin from Europe is made from wheat because of their fear of GMO corn.

I'm new to the gluten free diet and am VERY careful with labels and am still learning. This was a quick fun game to play, thank you!! I did not get 100 % but I did not do that bad either. I learned malt flavoring has gluten in it and didnt know that before.

Thank you!! :)

However, I still have labels out in the real world that puzzle me from time to time...

I sent it to my friends--we'll see how they do !

Great idea to send to friends/family to let them see how to read labels!! By the way... I got 100% ~ BUT, one thing the game doesn't represent is cross contamination issues. I would never eat the chips in the game due to that fact!! :)

Good game for beginners. It is a start on teaching folks to read the labels! I got 100%, by the way! :D

I love the sarcastic touch, too. Like on the side of one of the corn flake boxes (the left one) (before you click on it) it says something about how there's a chance you could win $100,000, but more likely, you'll get a piece of worthless plastic. :lol:

On the same box, this time when you click it, it recommends that you add one cup of milk and fifteen teaspoons of sugar. For maximum impact, eat it really quickly while watching high impact cartoons in the morning. Sweeten to taste with more sugar. LOL

Yes, a good game for people who don't yet get it. A little more lighthearted. If it addressed cross-contamination, though, then you'd have to get into calling the companies and such...too complicated :P

I didn't think before I went there that I was going to do that good, but I got 100%. Unfortunately most of the labels I read are not that simple. :(

What fun! My 9 yo son took the quiz with me and we scored 100%. I'm gluten free for 1 year now and needless to say in our home it's a "family" change of lifestyle, so for my son to rate 100%, it shows how he's been paying attention.

I cannot do more than one at a time - the game freezes on whatver I picked and I have to close it and start it over, or open it in a different window. I can't get my score, or the correct answers, either LOL.

fun and educational... but would be more realistic if half of the stuff in the pantry listed my least favorite "ingredient"... natural flavors. makes me sooo very frustrated every time I see it. and sometimes when you call they cant/wont even tell you what it is!

although I think it is hilarious that there is a line of organic juice at a major healthfood store that lists organic natural flavoring as an ingredient. really, if you're that concerned about what you're eating that you'll buy organic, are you really just going to buy organic whatever and not know what they're putting in your food???

That was fun! I have to add that "natural flavors" is now my least favorite ingredient as well as it NEVER occured to me until I drank Tropicana lemonade and got so sick last week. I looked it up on thye Delphi list and sure enough, it was hidden under natural flavors. Could someone PLEAZZZZZ tell me what gluten is doing in lemonade? Arrrgghhhh....

I got a 100%. If only all labels were that simple!

Oh it gets better! It happened AGAIN this week. June 21st, a beautiiful day in my little summer seacoast city of Portsmouth, Summer Solstice, full strawberry moon- it's gorgeous so my husband and I go for a bike ride and decide- "Let's go have a margarita at one of the decks down by the harbor" "Great Idea!" So I get a frozen strawberry margarita with Patron silver tequila (because I know it has no coloring and no gluten) and the next day I have one hell of a hangover (Mind you, I had ONE drink). By noon, I'm realizing this is no hangover-- I'm glutened. So I call the restaurant and ask the manager to read me the ingredients on the strawberry margarita mix and he reads them- nothing resembling gluten until the last ingredient- natural flavors! Needless to say two days later i still have that "hangover" and am thinking about getting a shirt that says "I Hate Natural Flavors" :P

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
