Do You Keep Wheat Flour In Your Household?
Posted 30 October 2011 - 06:38 AM
I don't like the idea due to airborne risk, but I'm still fairly new to this lifestyle.
Just was curious and interested as to how many celiacs have wheat flour sitting in their household?

It's not like gluten eaters must eat gluten or they go into a coma. It's not going to hurt a gluten eater to have a gluten free meal at someone's house.
There was a thread awhile ago where some people said that you should serve a gluten cake at a child's birthday party and give your celiac child their own little cake. I was just blown away that celiacs would say that to other celiacs. My house is a safe zone for my child and nothing comes in here that would harm him. At his own birthday party I make sure that every single thing I serve is safe so he doesn't have to worry about ruining his party by being sick. My daughter doesn't have celiac but we still do her parties gluten free so that he and I can be safe.
I think if you have a shared kitchen, it's still awfully risky to have flour in your house. Flour gets everywhere and there is no way to contain that dust.
Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.
Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.
Ready to get well and get on with my life!

We do not have wheat flour in the house. This includes gluten cookie, muffin, cake mixes as well. Have you seen how flour can poof and float when you pour it into a bowl or when you turn on your stand mixer? I'm willing to deal with crumbs. They don't poof and float.
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
