We cook a lot of Mexican food here, so I will keep you in mind, and if I can find one, will let you know asap, as I am currently researching Mexican food for Celiacs.

Have you tried some of the fresh, soft cheeses? They melt better IMO. What about adding Mexican cream?

Do you have a grocery store that stocks Mexican cheeses? I don't mean Kraft Monterey Jack....

I use Kraft Monterray Jack all the time. Melts beautifully, tastes good, and I know it's safe. I just thought I'd mention that because I just happened to be eating some as I read this post! :D

Ha!

The Mexican cheese brand I see most around here is Cacique. It may be your recipe not the cheese. You'd be surprised at how complicated a simple cheese sauce can be -one that doesn't clump or seize.

Anyway, there are many fresh Mexican cheeses. Some are salty, sweet, etc. some crumble well like a blue or feta.

yes, Kraft Monterey Jack is safe. Most Kraft cheese products are. Kraft have a policy that they will always clearly disclosed the presence of and gluten source by naming the grain on the label.

Kraft is safe they dust the grated cheese with potato flour, some companies do not. Unfortunately we have became a label reading society. So long as I healthy and happy, I keep reading labels.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
