I'm new to this site and the gluten free way of life!

I'm trying to learn all of the ins and outs of living with this and adjusting :)...I had no idea the things I was contaminating my body with unknowingly!

I haven't had time to really look around, but I was wondering anyones thoughts on cooking spray?

I stopped buying all walmart brands because I seem to get really sick no matter what. (except their olive oil and apple sauce seems to be okay)
I bought smart balance cooking spray, but realized there is grain alcohol in it. I can't find anything on it online, and smart balance says all their products of gluten free.
any thoughts??

I really want to bake some gluten free pumpkin muffins, but I'm lost..

Grain alcohol, being distilled, is generally considered safe for celiacs.

PAM cooking spray, with the exception of the "baking" version, is gluten-free.

I have not found any sprays that are not gluten-free. Except - Baker's Joy and any other baking spray with flour added. It should be very obvious in the ingredients. Most of them seem to have soy, so it soy is an issue:

You could do one of these with whatever oil you like:


Sometimes i just wad up a paper towel and dip it in oil and wipe. Or I take a chunk of butter or margarine and rub it on the pan.

After one very awful, crunchy mess, I found that doesn't work with a waffle iron :lol:

I have read the labels on a few, although I do not remember the brands that say right on them that they may contain traces of wheat. I now stick exclusively to PAM. I've thought about buying one of those refill yourself sprayers but I always thought they'd be so much more expensive. I guess I can just get once since they're so cheap.
