Hi AVR1962,

I do not live in Germany but I live close to its border. Und ich spreche Deutsch. ;)

I hadn't checked this post in awhile. Good to see someone else here from Germany. I'm located more mid-country, about an hour from Frankfurt. We are here due to my husband's job position. You'd think after 10 years I'd know more German but we live in a very large American community which many of the Germans speak English so thre has not been much chance for practice here.

I made a good find the other day. Been experimenting some with the gluten-free products and found some really good all-purpose type gluten-free flour at Globus called Mix It. I've tried Bob's Mill's flours and find them rather grainy and make rather dense baked goods. This was not the case with this flour.

Have you been able to find products where you are at?

Do you get BoFrost delivery? That's kind of like Schwann's in the states. I have been buying from them for years. Saves me trying to make the food myself but when I went gluten-free I thought it was the end. I called them and asked if they have a gluten-free menu and low and behold they do! I was tickled!! I have tried several of their items now and they are all very good.....pizza, tortellini, dinner rolls, even cordon blue....all gluten-free!

Are you from Germany, or here just temp? How do you like it?

I'm spending a few days in Germany next week. in a place called Kircheim. My husband started travelling to Germany in the 80s to attend Ford Capri events(believe they were released as Mercury Lincoln Capri in USA). He's been a member of Capri Club Deutschland for a number of years and we're coming over for their annual conference and dinner dance.

Wonderful!!! Not sure where Kircheim is. We live about 45 minutes from Kircheimboladen....get a load of that name! Enjoy your time in Germany.

It's in the Hersfeld-Rotenburg county,

district Kassel and state of Hesse. We're driving to Newcastle in England on Wednesday morning, getting Ferry to Amsterdam and then driving down. I'm a bit concerned about the journey as I'm back on gluten for scope and feeling pretty bad. I get the scope the day after we come back and can't wait to go back gluten free! The first time I tried to go back on gluten I only lasted 3 days. It's been five weeks now and I just have to do it. I'm only managing it as I'm not working just now. only got 11 days to go!

Wow, really? You are going on gluten right before the trip? Good luck with that. Doc wanted me to do the same, I made it to day 12 and was in terrible agony. 5 weeks, you are a real trouper!

Your trip plan sounds fun, enjoy! and best to you with your testing when you get back home.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
