Topics I've Started

Tapioca In Baking

06 February 2011 - 04:11 PM

Right from first being diagnosed with celiac disease I've found that tapioca has an overpowering taste and I really find it very unpleasant. If I catch a whiff of it in anything I don't want to eat it. It's supposed to be tasteless but it has a strong flavor and smell! So I use corn starch or arrowroot starch instead.

I've noticed that in a few products that use it, I can't taste it, but usually in gluten free bread type products I can.

Has anyone else had this experience?

When Will My Warn Status End?

21 January 2011 - 01:50 PM

When I first registered for this forum I posted my blog address into my post sign off, not knowing that it was against the rules and I didn't find out it was against the rules for quite a while after that, because as I was new I didn't have permission to access any messages sent to me. I wasn't very familiar with forums and the rules back then.

That was back in 2009 and I still have a warn status, how long will it stay that way for an innocent error?


Azteca Milling - Instant Corn Masa Flour

27 December 2010 - 05:01 PM

I recently bought a bag of this corn flour and it says it's a gluten free food but does this mean it's gluten free? - I'm not sure I can trust it.

I haven't seen tested Masa flour anywhere and would be interested how this would come out if tested.

Something has been upsetting my stomach and I'm not sure if it's this flour.

Thanks if you have any info.

Gluten Free Minced Fruit

04 November 2010 - 08:53 AM

I Just bought President's Choice Minced Fruits and they told me over the phone that although it doesn't contain gluten, it may contain traces from the line.

So now I'm on a hunt for gluten free minced fruit (no suet) for mince pies, can anyone help? Thank you

When A Product Says It's Gluten Free But It's Not

13 October 2010 - 08:13 PM

Recently when I was in the States (I live in Canada), I noticed that a brand I trust Mary's crackers which says it's gluten free, also had a warning saying that it was prepared in a facility that also prepares products with wheat. This is a big concern for me, when I see Gluten Free on a label I expect it to be totally gluten free. It's hard to know what I can trust these days. Has anyone else had problems with products that claim to be gluten free?
