I'm just curious how many users would eat something that was made with gluten free ingredients if it was made in a bakery where they use wheat flour; We have a cupcakery around here with gluten-free options but they specialize in regular cupcakes.

I did the other day :) But the place I got it from has been around for ages and seems to understand about CC and making sure the cakes are 100 % gluten-free :)

Maybe. I guess i would ask them about how they are made. & like, look at how they store them in the store. like are they on the same tray with gluten ones. I went to a coffee shop with some gluten-free pastries but they are wrapped in clear plastic to keep them safe.

i was a baker for 4 years and a chef for over 20.

every few days, in a bakery, a thick layer of flour grows on every surface that you can write your name in w/ your finger. every shelf collects a layer of flour from just the airborne flour that settles.

it's everywhere. every time someone scoops some flour into a mixer, or fills a bin with flour, poof, a huge cloud of flour fills the room, and settles everywhere. if you want to eat something from that environment, good luck to you.

Absolutely not and, I don't even have a diagnosis. I won't anything out of a shared kitchen where flour isn't used much less where it is used. The only shared kitchen I would even consider would be BJ's or Outback because of how stringent they are when it comes to the issue of Celiac. However, I have a huge can't/won't eat list so that pretty much rules them out as well.

In my opinion, a shared bakery is just begging for trouble. I don't know how there wouldn't be a cross contamination situation.

Never. I don't care how careful they think they are, it's like the one person here said -- a layer of flour just collects everywhere. Think about how it was the last time you used regular flour. I remember letting it "poof" into the bowl too hard and a cloud of flour dust would rise up into the air. Now multiply that by umpteen cupcakes/cakes/whatever else made in a commercial bakery.... no way! :ph34r:

What scares me about seeing bakeries having "gluten-free options" is that I'm scared the staff really only thinks that using gluten-free flour is what makes something gluten-free.

I was talking with someone last week who owns a restaurant and she herself is gluten intolerant. She said that while she tries to educate her staff when it comes to preparing food for people who request gluten-free, she knows that they aren't always as careful as they should be and have made mistakes.

No way, no how. I can't even enter Panera Bread without getting sick. No way I would trust baked goods made in a shared kitchen.

There is one local bakery where I can eat. We speculate that there must be a family member with allergies because they are very allergy conscious. (They make limited gluten-free items and a variety of egg/dairy/nut free items.)

However, another shop gets me sick. I know based on their practices that I should not even try to eat their gluten-free cookies, but they also make fruit bars that are segragated. They must have that layer of flour floating around, though, because that was a bad idea.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
