#693830 Amy's Gluten Free Spinach Pizza

Posted by on 21 April 2011 - 04:29 AM

You find it hard to believe that Amy's makes other people sick?? There are a ton of threads on this website that confirms just that. Sorry, but I don't typically come on this site and lie about getting sick from a product, that would serve no purpose. Be careful with how you say things on this board, perhaps you weren't trying to offend, but the very nature of your post accuses many others of being liars.

#693037 Glutened Myself

Posted by on 18 April 2011 - 08:29 AM

That's actually not true. Rudi's DOES have a gluten free bread, which has caused some confusion in the celiac world, but it sounds like you didn't mistakenly pick up that one.

Best wishes to a swift recovery!

#677399 Taco Seasoning?

Posted by on 22 February 2011 - 06:53 AM

I use El Paso Mild and Ortega, the ingrediants do not have any gluten ingrediants and I've never had a problem with them. There are some, however, that have wheat in there...I think ChiChi's is one...you just need to read and be very careful!

#674350 Stevia Is Not Necessarily Gluten Free

Posted by on 11 February 2011 - 05:02 AM

I'm not sure where you've gotten your information because I've definitely never heard or experienced that Chicory Root is not gluten free. It's a natural herb. So when you say "we definitely all know that Chicory Root is NOT gluten free", please provide us with some documentation of such so we can do our best not to spread false information. Being gluten free is hard enough without inaccuracies flying around!

#672859 "gluten Free Pebbles" I Think Not!

Posted by on 04 February 2011 - 05:30 AM

Carmel color in the U.S. is fine for celiacs. I've eaten Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles for a LONG time and never had any issues.

Sorry you got sick!

#661213 Grrrrrrrr . . .

I don't know VioletBlue, maybe you're still really angry about Betty Crocker that you're not seeing how some of your posts are coming across. Everyone is allowed and welcomed to have their own opinions for sure, but some of your comments on this thread having come across as very accepting of other opinions. Maybe once the dust settles and you re-read it you'll see what I'm picking up on. No one is telling you that you don't have a "right" to voice your opinion but when you say things like "so you don't have a soy allergy, congrats"...it's not coming across very nicely.

That being said, its easy to read tones that maybe aren't there in a thread for sure.

However unfortunate it may be that Betty Crocker has now added soy to their product. As Peter said, they promised a gluten free product and that is what they're delivering. I'm not a chef so I can't really comment on why they're changing the ingredients now but while I appreciate your information us of the change...I appreciate Betty Crocker more for offering the celiac community a quality product.

#660747 Grrrrrrrr . . .

Posted by on 15 December 2010 - 09:43 AM

My goodness. The tone in some of the responses on this thread are unpleasant. There's no need for rudeness or snide comments here! Everyone is trying to help everyone else out, so to assume people are purposely trying to offend you is silly. This is unfortunate for those celiacs who also can't have soy without a doubt but sadly there are a lot of things that are considered gluten free that many people cannot have. I for one, cannot tolerate Udi's and still have no idea why but I'm not ripping apart others who can eat that product or bashing their opinions about the product.

Ease up people....it's the holidays!

#658630 Pillsbury Frostings

Posted by on 06 December 2010 - 05:40 AM


My daughter and I both have celiac. I made a gluten free cake and used Pillsbury's Vanilla Confetti Funfetti frosting. She was asleep when it was ready so my husband and I each had a piece before her- luckily! It made me VERY sick.

I figured that it must have been the sprinkles since we have eaten Pillsbury frosting before with no problem. So when my daughter was disappointed that we couldn't eat the cake, we had some of the PLAIN frosting that hadn't been used. It made us BOTH sick! Usually my daughter is VERY insensitive to gluten whereas I can tell very quickly if I have eaten some.

Do not use this frosting!

Please be careful when you post things like this on here. Just because you reacted from it, doesn't mean that it was because of gluten. I'm not saying that this particular frosting is or isn't gluten free, because while nothing in the ingrediants screams gluten, I haven't checked with the company but I don't know for a fact the status. Just be careful that you're not spreading false information just because you had a negative experience, I love to hear about everyone's experiences but this disease is too difficult to not have all the facts!

#655291 Cigars Have Gluten!

Posted by on 21 November 2010 - 06:08 PM

Loey- Just be careful...some of the information "learned" on this forum isn't always accurate. As with any open forum, some people post statements and make comments with very little facts other than hearsay. This particular thread for example has raised some questions. I have no information to say if cigars have gluten or if they do not because I'm not a smoker but its something to be aware of while being on this board!

Best wishes!

#651297 Does Anyone Like Being Celiac

Posted by on 05 November 2010 - 04:02 AM

I don't really like being a celiac but I do like educating people about it! Most people I talk to are quite interested in learning more about it and I think the more educated people are on the disease, maybe the more I'll end up liking it in the future when more places offer items for us to enjoy! (that may have been the longest sentence ever...I had to breath even after typing it :P )

#639152 Rudi's

Posted by on 13 September 2010 - 03:27 AM

Has anyone tried Rudi's gluten free breads?? I react to the Udi's brand so I was wondering what anyone's luck was with Rudi's.

How random is it that they both have the most similar names? Way to confuse us all!! :P

#638125 Do You Expect Relatives To Cater To Your Gluten-Free Diet?

Posted by on 09 September 2010 - 04:17 AM

I actually hate being catered to with my family. I really don't like to stand out and make people change everything just for me, it makes me really uncomfortable. That being said...my family does it because they're my family. Sometimes, its not sucessful and sometimes its great but the fact that they even want to try is enough for me! It seems like your family is trying for sure, but there is definitely a learning curve. I've been a celiac for almost 7 years and sometimes my dad still offers me pretzels haha and then is like, "oh...whoops" and then picks on me telling me how delicious they are. That stuff doesn't bother me.

I tend to bring my own desserts or food to those events, most of the time people don't even know its gluten free and they chow them up!

I know its hard not to be overprotective of your daughter, the initial years of diagnosis can be quite challenging but it sounds like your family has been more sensitive than most stories I've heard on this board!
