Question-- Hunt's Pudding Snack Packs

14 May 2009 - 11:32 AM

Hi everyone.

I had been under the impression that Hunt's pudding packs were not gluten-free. But I just went hunting around on the internet to try to double check, and couldn't find much of anything.

Anybody know anything about Hunt's pudding packs?

Thanks!

Need The 5 Specific Blood Tests To Ask For.

30 September 2008 - 09:44 AM

Hi guys-

An old friend contacted me, who I haven't talked to in many years! She has been dealing with gastro issues for the past 5 years, numerous misdiagnoses, meds that don't work, etc. You know the drill. Well, she came across Celiac in her own research, and remembered me, so... I'm putting together some info for her, and I can't find the 5 blood tests! Can someone let me know the specific ones to ask for, so that she gets the full panel? Thanks!

Make Your Voice Heard

The following product is supposedly meant for non-Celiac gluten intolerants. It should not be used as a treatment for Celiac Disease, and (considering the long-term health effects of even small amounts of gluten) to do so could be dangerous. The language on the webpage for this product is confusing and misleading, and I believe it needs to be changed.

Take a look for yourself, here.

Although Enzymedica states that GlutenEase "is not formulated to prevent celiac symptoms," the advertisements go on to describe Celiac Disease as a "Cause of Gluten Intolerance." Look at the second paragraph under that heading. It states:

"Gluten exhibits a unique amino acid sequence which creates inflammation and a flattening of the villi of our intestinal tract. The villi provide the intestine with the ability to absorb nutrients from the foods we eat, thus damaged villi can lead to responses such as malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies or other digestive disorders."

Since damaged, flattened, or blunted villi are considered to be a defining characteristic of Celiac Disease- not non-Celiac gluten intolerance- I feel that the inclusion of this paragraph is misleading, and frankly down-right bizarre, for a product that is supposedly not aimed at Celiacs.

If this doesn't bother you, ok.

If you think this needs to be changed, click here to tell Enzymedica about it.

One last note: This thread is not intended to further inflame an already hot topic. While everyone is free to post whatever they like, this thread is also not intended to be a place of major debate. It's simply an opportunity to make your voice heard, and a place to post any responses you get from this company, if you wish.

Thanks for your time.

Having Trouble Emailing A C.com Article To A Friend

30 July 2008 - 10:10 AM

I wanted to e-mail this article, Understanding the Genetics of Gluten Sensitivity , and nothing happens when I click the "Email Article" link. Is this because it's an older article, or is it just a temporary thing..? I can just copy and paste it into an email if need be, but I just thought I'd mention it.

Brownies Recipe Request- That Use Cocoa Powder

17 July 2008 - 02:03 PM

I'm hunting brownie recipes! I need dairy-free ones that call for cocoa, not a hunk of chocolate. I know there's dairy-free hunk-of-chocolate options out there, but I'd prefer to use cocoa, which is cheaper- and I can make up mixes ahead of time.

If your recipe includes chocolate chips, do post it. I plan on picking up some Enjoy Life chocolate chips this weekend.

I've tried Carol Fenster's recipe, but we didn't care for how they turned out. (Which surprised me- everything else of hers that I've made has turned out good. Just a matter of taste, I guess.) They were kind of dry and dense.

The flours I always have in the house are:
-White Rice Flour
-Sorghum Flour
-Tapioca Flour
-Corn Starch
-Potato Starch (most of the time)
-Sweet (Glutinous) Rice Flour

Thanks for your help!!! :D
