When I first went gluten-free, I bought Earth Balance Buttery Spread (the soy-free version). My local Wal-Mart carried it but I can't find it there any more. I use butter now but really like the Earth Balance.

If you're cooking with it, you can usually substitute any oil or grease. When backpacking, we use either bacon-grease or canola oil. It's worked for me in sauces, baked goods, and pretty much any time you aren't going to watch a pad of butter melt onto your toast.

It depends on what you want to use the butter for. Baking? Cooking?

Liquid fat would not work properly in many baking recipes such as pastry, biscuits, shortbread and so on because you need solid fat to build layers. It does work well in some baking such as cakes and quick breads as you sometimes must melt butter, anyway.

For baking I use palm oil shortening or coconut oil (which is a solid at room temp). I have used these with success in making cookies, cake, and non-bake items such as frostign and Rice Krispie treats. I also use them to grease pans and glass or ceramic cookware. I use LIGHT olive oil for anything that calls for melted butter or margerine. The "LIGHT" part is important if using olive oil. Light olive oil does not have strong olive or woody flavor like extra virgin or virgin or even plain olive oil.

For spreading on toast I have heard about Earth Balance but have never foudn the one that is soy free. I just do other types of spread on toast or sandwiches instead and don't miss the butter. Some examples of things you can spread: Apple butter, pumpkin butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, almond butter, jam, jelly, or other fruit spreads, avocado, mayonnaisse, hummus, mashed up banana and honey.

If making a grilled type sandwich (like a pannini) I spitz the outside of the bread with oil and spray the pan with oil. I have a little olive oil spray bottle that I refill.

Soy-free earth balance is my favorite for when butter flavor is important. Coconut oil is great for saut

Just a suggestion - what about ghee, clarified butter? Purity Farms has one that is certified casein free on the label. I've never tried it, so I defer to anyone else out there who has ingested without problems. I know it will solidify much like the consistency of coconut oil but I'm not a baker, so not sure how good it will do there.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      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.
