#889003 Wheat Bran - Try It - It's Great!

Posted by admin on 19 September 2013 - 07:59 AM

Candy was banned for trolling--obviously there is no certified gluten-free wheat bran, and it is dangerous and irresponsible to promote it here to celiacs.

#869156 Mushroom (Neroli) Memorial Thread

Posted by admin on 16 May 2013 - 01:38 PM

It is with great sadness that I share the very bad news that one of our long-time board members and moderators passed away recently due to complications resulting from a stroke that she suffered a few weeks ago. She was very helpful to many on this board, and this thread is the place to share your thoughts and memories of her. She will be missed dearly by all she touched with her kindness, and I never got to say "thank you" to her for serving as a board moderator--thank you!

#867144 Tom O'bryan & Cyrex Laboratories

Posted by admin on 06 May 2013 - 01:01 PM

Please explain how these citations relate to the topic at hand--they do not mention Cyrex labs and the reliability of their tests. Looking at the titles, many seem to be about allergies and have nothing obviously related to Cyrex Labs' " cross- reactive" tests.

I also edited the title of this thread, as it was not fair to Schar, as their products are certainly gluten-free.

#812712 Some gluten-free Bread May Not Be Gluten Free!

Posted by admin on 22 July 2012 - 08:02 AM

How do you know corn alone does not cause a celiac reaction? If you know that for a fact please publish your research. Until then I prefer to avoid corn until I can check the research of 'the product guy".

Sorry, but it is not up to us to disprove a wild claim...since it is you who is making the claim that corn gluten could be harmful to celiacs, you must provide the supporting research to back this claim up. The fact is that the vast majority of diagnosed celiacs, including myself, heal up just fine and get healthy again while including corn in their diets, which is why corn is considered safe for most celiacs.

Also, throughout this site the "Gluten-Free Diet 101" article listed (see Celiac.com's home page "The Gluten-Free Diet" box):
http://www.celiac.co...Free/Page1.html
and throughout this entire forum, in the Frequently Asked Questions area, and in that article it says:

Other Food Sensitivities
Most people who begin a gluten-free diet experience almost immediate relief from their symptoms. However, many people experience gluten-like reactions to other foods, and often suspect that their food was contaminated by gluten. As it turns out, many people who experience such reactions may in fact have additional food sensitivities. Some of the most common food sensitivities include, dairy/casein, soy, corn, sugar, nuts, shell-fish and processed or fatty foods. While many people report that they are able to add these foods back into their diet after they have established a gluten-free diet for many months, and after their intestines have had time to heal, it is up to you and your doctor or nutritionist to determine which foods may be causing you trouble. The 'elimination diet' is often recommended for determining what additional food sensitivities you may have. Ask your doctor if the elimination diet is right for you.

Food Diary
It is important to keep a food diary, especially when first initiating a gluten-free diet. Making notes of the foods you eat and the reactions you have to thefoods you eat, and how you feel that day, can give you more insight asto which foods are hurting you and which foods your body can easily digest.


So I'm not sure what is not clear about Celiac.com or The Gluten-Free Mall's position on this topic, but you seem to have an anti-Celiac.com agenda here that is not based on reality, as you are completely ignoring the fact that we do cover this topic in detail. There are also many articles on Celiac.com dealing with corn.

Take care,
Scott

#812513 Some gluten-free Bread May Not Be Gluten Free!

Posted by admin on 21 July 2012 - 12:21 PM

One of the basic tenants of a celiac diagnosis is to also try and exclusionary diet to find other foods that might cause you issues, as many celiacs also react to milk, corn, oats, soy, etc., but these are considered separate intolerance issues and not part of celiac disease. The fact that some celiacs can't tolerate corn is not new news, and I've writing about this for many years on this site.

Take care,
Scott

PS - Which is why on The Gluten-Free Mall you can filter out those items and sort products by those other ingredients.

#795458 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by admin on 14 May 2012 - 11:51 AM

I agree...big companies like this want to cash in now on the gluten-free market, even if they can't really offer something gluten-free. I still can't believe that the NFCA backs this, but am really glad to see Dr. Fasano and the GIG take the correct side here, as this is really a serious set back, rather than a step forward. I don't think that Domino's understands that McDonald's was sued for much less than what is going on here when they used to call their French fries gluten-free (which they likely are, but they have wheat in a flavoring ingredient in the hydrolyzed form--and the do use dedicated vats, at least by company policy). Anyway, McDonald's quit using the term "gluten-free" on their fries after that. In this case the contamination issues are already known--Domino's admits it up front--yet they are still using the term. They'd better get all people who buy this to sign a waiver, as I can smell a lawsuit coming!

#794613 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by admin on 10 May 2012 - 09:54 AM

So both Domino's and the NFCA are now deleting negative comments, although Domino's is doing it way more. Can you all please:
  • Make comments at both sites about how you feel, and take screen shots of them and post them here if they get deleted? To take a screen shot there is a print screen button on your key board, and some may need to hit the function/print screen buttons at the same time. Then you can paste the photo by using the Control-V buttons.

  • http://www.facebook.com/NFCeliacAwareness
Let's document this bad behavior for an upcoming article. If both parties are so sure about this, then why are dozens, if not hundreds of comments getting deleted from their Facebook pages?

#794597 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by admin on 10 May 2012 - 07:41 AM

I asked the cook about the gluten-free toppings. He said he thought they were all gluten-free. I said I needed to know for sure. So he grabbed his list of gluten-free toppings and told me the one that isn't gluten-free. I asked if they are using toppings from the bins from gluten pizzas and he said yes. He said they have "this thing" they're supposed to read to tell people it isn't suitable for Celiacs - he said he doesn't really understand it but he thinks it's just for people who want gluten-free for "dietary reasons". I asked "like Kim K and Miley?" and he said yes




So we are only one week into launch, training is supposed to have been done according to the NFCA, and this is what we get? Imagine a year from now???


I am for starting a campaign to pressure Domino's to stop using the term "gluten-free", and for pressuring the NFCA to remove Domino's certification...who is with me?
