Hi -

My Publix used to carry Tinkyada pasta but now they stopped. Now they just carry DeBoles and Notta Pasta. Can anyone tell me how these are? I hate shelling out a lot of $ for an expensive gluten free product and then have it be a dud. If neither are good, then I can make a special trip to the health food store.

I think Debole's is okay. I found it a bit 'corny' for my taste but an okay texture. My favorite is the Thai Kitchen Rice Noodles. Usually they can be found in the Oriental food section. My store carries the real thin angel hair size and a linguine. I like the angel hair because it cooks in just a minute or so. I just toss it into veggies that are done cooking before I drain. Then a minute later drain and toss with butter. Quick, filling and cheap.

Do you have Super Walmart by you (the walmart fresh foods)? I can find Tinkyada pasta at a decent price there. I can only find it at the larger walmarts where there is fresh foods. The smaller stores do not seem to carry it.

We've had DeBoles, and it is pretty good. But, if it isn't a lot of trouble, I'd drive to the health store to get Tinkyada.

Thanks everyone! Based on your comments, I think I'll stick with my Tinkyada. My son is the one who is gluten free, and he's super picky.

My local store did that. Stopped carrying my product. I asked them to bring it back and they did so with limited ordering and letting me know the day the order arrived. They also found out I wasn't the only un happy camper. :)

I would order Tinkyada online before switching brands, if it came to that. It's the only one everyone in our family has been happy with.

I started ordering Tinkyada online! WAY cheaper!! And many varieties as well, we order on Vitacost.com which has a great selection and amazing prices on gluten free foods. We are a gluten free home now and it took some time to get a gluten-free pasta my youngest (non celiac) would accept as "regular" pasta because he LOVES LOVES LOVES his pasta!!! Well, the Tinkyada did the trick, he eats it like he knows no different, we all enjoy it. Us adults liket the quinoa/corn blend by Ancient Harvest and find it to be higher in protein/fiber and a bit more adult in taste/texture. But for kids, I think Tinkyada is the way to go.

I second the Vitacost vote. You order over 25$ and it's free shipping. Any specialty food or supplement that you purchase, I always check there first.

I used to eat the notta pasta, I thought it was pretty good,but it's been a while, and the shapes they sell tend to stick together. I like rotini because it's impossible to stick together in the pan!

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
