Whoa! I guess I read too much into the name Omission!

I'm sure my mistake is common & I don't want to wantonly assign nefarious motives. (Only said I didn't want to, not that I wouldn't wonder)

Omission? They didn't omit any more gluteney beer ingredients than budweiser does. It's another barley malt beer claiming to be deglutened by process.

Doesn't the main gluten ppm test do poorly w/ hordein, the barley gluten analog to gliaden? Or maybe there's a newer test.

I was psyched that there was another oregon gluten-free beer, but w/ forum members comments on the spanish "deglutened" barley malt beer, I think I'll wait.

I agree with Tom, I think,.  I am a little cautious about it.  But it's been a while now.  So, has anyone tried the Omission beer?  Does anyone think it is ok or anyone have any issues with it?   I don't remember seeing it anywhere in my area.  I am not sure I'd try it if I found it tho.

I don't drink beer, but I have super, super annoyed by waitstaff (who are trying to be helpful)  in restaurants offering me one of these fake "gluten free" beers, which are still made from gluten bearing ingredients, because they are ASSUMING that anyone with a gluten free diet requirement, who just asked for the gluten free menu and repeated that they need the entire order to be gluten free, can then just STILL have something made from gluten, aka malted barley, as long as it doesn't have too much of it, and has been processed.  It is the beer equivalent of picking the croutons off the salads...... :angry:  and it's not helpful to the overall quest to get safe food when eating out.  It is just something ELSE I have to memorize to avoid.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.

      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.

      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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. Thank You,
