In Topic: Carnival Cruise Gluten Free Experience

21 May 2015 - 02:55 PM

Very impressive article. Great info, and well written!


Two comments I have:


Gluten-free pizza , in my experience, and IMO, always sucks, unless it's cooked in an industrial oven such as Domino's. So that's a tough one, and Carnival is in the same boat as the rest of us there (oops).


Sandwiches, that's an easy fix. Simply utilize individual packets of mustard/mayo. Problem solved.


Thanks, larry mac

In Topic: Artificial Sweetener

20 April 2015 - 09:57 AM

If I may, Id like to comment on this 9½ year old (until yesterday) thread. I'm not a food chemist, or expert, so this is just my opinion.


I don't use artificial sweeteners. Not because of any health concerns, but because they don't taste good to me. I just can't abide 'em. lol. However, I'm very fond of Truvia. This is not an artificial sweetener, it's an "alternative" sweetener. Yes, it's a processed product, but to one extent or another, so is sugar, agave nectar, molasses, etc. I can't stand any other stevia product, too bitter. But Truvia solves that problem. They extract only the palatable part of the steeped stevia leaves. Then blend with some sugar alcohols (which are also "natural"). The result being a processed, but not artificial sweetener. 


Walmart sells a similar, generic product with the same taste, as far as I can tell. But, I don't like it because it's a very fine powder. When  you pour it, you get that floating powder taste in your nose. Truvia has crystals about the same size as sugar.

In Topic: This Is Why Corn Causes Gluten Like Symptoms

Just my opinion, this is nonsense. There's no wheat, barley, or rye in corn. It's perfectly safe for Celiacs.
