2 Questions Abt Food Labeling And Baking
0

4 posts in this topic

hello,,

have a question about the labeling of food that seems to be gluten free but has got that "made in a factory that handles"!!! label ... ive seen loads of things that look ok but have this "tag" on the end. are they ok, is the manufacturer just protecting themselves or should i be avoiding them.. :unsure:

i have to say since starting this diet ( even though ive slipped up a few times) i havent had one "dark" or anxious thought and the only time ive had gerd was when i had a smoothie that contained strawberries

.rash on hands is just dry skin now- hopefully it will clear up soon. the rash on face isn,t any better though, - im looking into gluten free cosmetics now.

the other question is about all the different types of gluten free flours there are. all the recipes ive looked at seem to use abt 3 or four different mixes of flour. ive bought a general gluten free flour , rice flour and cornmeal. if i wanted a simple an easy ( hate cooking) flatbread,shortbread or scone mix could i get away just replacing normal flour for the gluten free flour :) .

It depends on what your sensitivity level is. It could be that they had a dedicated line for the product, but they also produced gluten containing stuff in another area.

I've got no idea with the backing. I'm no baker lol.

I have no problems with products from shared facilities. Most are, even if they don't say so (the disclosure is voluntary). Is your house 100% gluten-free? If not, then you live in a shared facility.

thanks,

im off work this week so ive just had a major clear out and clean up of kitchen, so now i can say i am totally gluten and dairy free :) . that answer helps a lot( i mean that, im not being sarcastic lol) :D , i guess im just gonna have to try them and see how things go. i did think i wouldnt be able to, or shouldnt be eating them. ive discovered these moreish spicy chana dahl snacks made of chick peas - they are lovely yum! so i,ll try some baking 2morrow - if its anything like monday when i was making soup - i,ll be having another major clean up of the kitchen :(

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
