I think it's about time I get an updated list of unsafe ingredients and was wondering if anyone here might have one they would be willing to share?

I am trying to teach my roommates how to cook for me, so I thought I might hang up a list.

Thanks in advance!

Nick, at the top of every section, there is a FAQ section that you may find helpful! the safe foods list is there, too.

Also, check this out:

http://www.celiac.co...ewbie-info-101/

It's in this thread too and a bunch of other ideas that may help. That way, I do not have to bore everyone again with my lengthy post. :lol:

Cheers,
IH

It's pretty simple:

read ingredients. If it has any of these, you can't have it:
Wheat
Flour( unless it says rice, etc)
Rye
Barley
Malt
Barley malt
Versions of wheat like couscous, spelt, durum, einkorn http://www.celiac.co...ents/Page1.html

The most important part is to read the ingredients. Wheat must be listed in the US and Canada.

It might be better to just label all the food in your place for them. Keep it simple like "Good" and "Bad." Then they just look at the label you put on the package and know. It means you have to intercept everything that comes in the kitchen, but it might be the best way in this case. If nothing else as a stop gap till they are better educated.

You could get colored duct tape. Stick in on everything that is safe. At my house, if it has a red tape on the butter tub, no one else used it without permission. Same with PB, etc.

Yes! I used red and green sticky dots in my early days.

Nick wanted a safe list because he says his friends are trying to cook for him.

This is tricky business, Nick. Do you have your own cookware, utensils, colander, cutting board? They need to use THOSE if they prepare the ingredients.

We can tell you safe ingredients, but then, the prep part could "undo" all that with CC.

Karen turned me onto the flexible ones, like this:

http://www.bedbathan...sp?SKU=13615004

and you can have your own set aside for your food prep. I gave one to my friends to use when they have me over to their houses.
They come 4 to a pack--great for travel.

Check things like these below for WHEAT. As Karen said, they will be labeled.

Candies
French fries
Gravies
Imitation meat or seafood
processed luncheon meats
Salad dressings
Sauces, including soy sauce
Seasoned rice mixes
Seasoned snack foods, such as potato and tortilla chips
Self-basting poultry
Soups and soup bases
Vegetables in sauce


One more thought, Nick--the toaster?

Are you sharing one? You need your own or you can get toaster bags.

Karen turned me on to these too for use while traveling.

Wow great ideas all over the place...

I was aware of the need for gluten free kitchenware and for the most part I have those but I could definitely use more. I love the idea of those toaster bags.

:lol:

Well, some of us are a tad "mother-hennish" and tend to go overboard with the advice. (ok, that's usually me doing that. Guilty.)

So, did we forget anything? Just holler. (just use your inside voice, please.)

and I have to say, for a newbie, wow you are remarkably flexible and taking this all in stride with good humor (I've seen some of your posts.) So, good for you, kiddo.

While I would never advise people not to check ingredients in anything, IrishHeart, I would also argue that at least two items on your list -- luncheon meats and self-basting poultry -- don't really deserve a special warning. At least in my part of the U.S., I can't think of more than one or two sandwich meats that might still have gluten and they are ones that are rarely seen (I think one has beer in it and the other is some gross mixture of various body parts and what looks like fat chunks). And while my memory isn't as good as it used to be, I simply can't remember EVER finding a self-basting poultry (turkey) that has gluten.

Good points, Richard.

I have never seen a turkey with gluten in it myself. And if it had wheat it would be labeled.
I know that mortadella and some other deli meats may be a problem.



FWIW, I found that short list I posted right here:

Maybe they should update it??

Nick.

Looks like someone made a PDF PRINTABLE one from the link Karen and I gave you. It's the one Scott has here on the site.
May be easier to read and have handy.

I know that since 2006 a few deli meats that used to have gluten have been changed. I think deli meat is just one of those things, like hot dogs and sausages, that folks simply assume might have some sort of wheat filler even though that's rarely or never the case.
