Hi guys! I have gotten so much help already from you guys. Thanks so much! So, our only store is a dinky, earth fare, and they do not have a lot of the ingredients I need for the recipes I found that we would like to try. Does anyone know where I can get:

dough enhancer (or is there another name,

tapioca starch (I found the flour), but the only tapioca I could find were the little pearls for the pudding. I am not sure if it is this and I need to cook it down or something?

Powdered egg white solids- or can I use how many eggs per spoon or something?

They also didn't even have corn flour, they had corn meal but not flour.

I also couldn't find corn tortillas either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much guys!

Tapioca flour is the same as tapioca starch. Why they have two names, don't know. :huh:

I can't say that I have come across powdered egg white solids either... what are you making?

Where are you? Our earth fare has a fantastic gluten-free selection. And you should be able to find corn tortillas just about anywhere. They are usually smaller in size that the regular flour ones, though. The same for corn flour, which alot of times is labeled as masa harina. I've seen that at Harris Teeter (not sure if you have one nearby).

Hope that helped a little! :)

Asian markets and regular groceries that have large international aisles and/or ones that are located near populations of internationals carry tapioca starch/flour and it is MUCH less cost than mainstream gluten-free or specialty brands.

I had to order dough enhancer I believe from this site, white vinegar also works

I found powdered egg whites at my local health food store, you might try whole foods

Indian markets are where I get my corn flour

Mission corn tortillas are made on a dedicated line and few people seem to have problems with them.

For "dough enhancer" just use pure 100% apple cider vinegar.

Thank you! I saw Tapioca flour, but the recipe I saw specifically said 'starch NOT the flour.' So, this confuses me.

They might have had the masa harina, but even the sales clerks didn't know that was it, as they stared blankly at the shelves. I will check our HT. Thanks so much, yes, you've helped a lot. Thanks!

Thank you, I will check there as well. I hope I can get a handle on all this new stuff. ;-)

Yes, I found the dough enhancer and ordered it last night. Thank you! Do you know how much vinegar to substitute for it?

I'd have to check in the Indian markets for the flour, thanks so much.

Is it a 1:1 conversion for the substitute?

Thanks so much!

Yes, it is a 1:1 conversion. Which is good since apple cider vinegar is much easier to find.

FYI - masa harina is not the same thing as corn flour. Masa harina is actually "corn dough flour", the corn is turned into a dough, dried out, then ground to make it. It's what is used to make corn tortillas, tamales, pupusas, many Latin foods in general. Corn flour is ground dried corn kernels, more like the way rice flour is made. Depending on the recipe, too, sometimes when it calls for "corn flour", it actually is calling for corn starch. Maybe the recipes you are looking at you could post and some of us could give you suggestions for replacements if needed.

Whole foods sells dough enhancer....I almost purchased some the other day but decided not to. Am glad to hear cider vinegar can be used instead...easier on the budget.

Tapioca flour and tapioca starch are both the same. It is potato starch and potato flour that are not the same. Am curious as to where the recipe you are talking about originated....perhaps you could post it so someone can be of more help with correct information.

I also purchase corn tortillas in the regular supermarkets, but I live in the western United States, where tortillas are easily obtained. I have found Mission tortillas not to my liking....almost stale like. I prefer another brand that originates from Albuquerque, NM.

I got it from celiac sprue site for buttermilk pancakes. It specifically says not starch. So, I am still confused.

Are the tortillas in the ethnic section or a different one, so I can narrow down the search some.

Thanks so much.

Corn tortillas (like Mission) are usually found on an end cap (end of the aisle facing the perimeter of the store) with the flour tortillas in regular grocery stores. Just ask where the tortillas are and they should be able to point them out.

I've honestly never even seen anything labeled "Tapioca Flour" only starch...but you can usually tell it is a starch just by looking at it. It will look just like cornstarch, baking powder, or powdered sugar; very, very fine.

Several stores also have the tortillas on the poison (bread) isle.

I use white corn flour as a direct replacement for wheat flour in cornbread, it is also great thickener for gravy.

Here is picture but the best I recall it was only about 2 bucks a bag last time I bought some.

      I'll keep this as short as possible, sigh. I remember having constipation all the time till i was 10 or 11 then i started getting diarrhea all the time. Ive never been able to pin my diarrhea to a certain type of food it always has been at random. Or it seemed that way. Sometimes ill have normal BMs for a couple weeks then diarrhea for a week or normal for a day or two diarrhea for a day or 2. I started getting tingly numb hands this year, i get sick all the time, i had one rash on my stomach i couldnt get rid of for years the doc said was dermatitis. So many more symptoms that line up with celiac. Heres the beef though- 7 months ago i had my first panic attack ever. I thought it was triggered by giving up chewing tobacco and the withdrawals coupled with stress at work and being a new dad but after reading about the connection between gluten im not so sure. The past 7 or 8 months have been hell. Constant anxiety, i dont get as kany panic attacks as i did in the beginning but now im suffering from depression. So, i started gluten free 2 days ago. The second day i started having horrible anxiety and a panic attack like my first one. Extremely intense.  Is that a sign that maybe i do have celiac or intolerance that coming off would make symptoms worse? I want to get tested but ive been to the ER 3 times and seen so many docs, psychiatrists and therapists trying to figure out a cause, i cant afford anymore. I dont think i can just one day bam! Have all this anxiety without a cause. Can i just do my best to stay gluten free and see what happens or is it very important to be tested? Also, will any gastro be able to test me? If i go to a gastro should i even bring up the anxiety and depression? Everytime i do i get a response similar to " its all in your head " and they just want to throw pills at me. I'm so lost to how my life got so messed up in 7 months. I need this to be the answer.

      Until he starts getting better he really needs to stick with soft, bland foods. I put a mashed potato soup recipe in the recipes area. What is healthy for a normal person isn't necessarily good for an inflamed digestive system. Anything spicy, acidic should be avoided. Fruit is acidic. I've read that pickled cabbage is good, but you couldn't pay me to eat anything pickled when I was nauseous. Things that I think would be safe are: broth mashed potato soup (the am. cheese and butter make the broth taste great) Baked potato mushy meatballs, no spices other than salt low fat vanilla ice cream with whey in the ingredient list   If these things work out try adding summer squash cooked in olive oil, add salt Summer squash tastes good in mashed potato soup.   Twice as many small meals are easier on your digestive system.   I am not a doctor or nutritionist, just been there, done that, want to help.

      I've just had a call from out GP with biopsy results. She said it confirmed celiacs and has a March 4 level. Does this sound correct?  She said she expected it given his antibodies were the highest she had ever seen.  We have an appointment on Friday for follow up. At least we know for sure now.

      Yes I got and colonskpy and endoscopy back in Oct. They said these tests were negative. However I recently found out at my new DR that notes on my tests(colonskpy ) said cronic inflammation of my intestines. I had also been eating mostly gluten free at least six months before the test. I have the gene for it and a huge amount of  symtoms so the g I dr said she could go ahead and dianose me with Celiacs or I could eat gluten for two weeks and get the colonskpy and endoscopy done again. I chose the first one and I have been feeling better since going competly gluten free. The ct scan is for them to check for cancerous tumors and possibility of Crohns just in my small intestines. She did say that I might have more than one thing going on. I didn't realize that you can't see Celiacs on a cat scan. I know that the tumors can happen with long term undiagnosed Celiacs and I'm not sure if Crohns is related as well.

      Yes, the broth helps. He wolfed some down and felt okay.  He insists he didnt eat anything from his friends. He did however gobble several gherkins last night - I checked they were gluten free but I am wondering now.  Dammit. He loves gherkins.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
