In Topic: Cracker Question

07 April 2014 - 05:02 AM

I haven't had a cracker that even comes close to a saltine.  I learned a long time ago not to compare gluten free items with a gluten counterpart.  It was a big disappointment.  My family likes the Schar table cracker, Glutino crackers, Nut Thins/Nut Thin Artisan, and Nabisco gluten free crackers.

Kraft, Unilever and ConAgra are all full disclosure companies, meaning if there is gluten as an ingredient it will be on the label.  As for the specific products:  Kraft  BBQ you would need to read the label.  Again as a full disclosure company they will list gluten ingredients.  I buy lots of Kraft products and feel confident with the company.  I have ate plain Kraft BBQ, but don't know about the specific flavors you mentioned.  I also eat A1 steak sauce without incident.  I haven't encountered a bacon I can't eat.  Meats are required to label any grain. 

 

As for the rotisserie chicken,  the sausage patty from McDonalds, and the ham from Bojangles, I personally wouldn't take the chance.  To much risk for me with cross contamination.  I have been known to eat McDonalds FF and hash browns on occasion since they cook them in a dedicated fryer and the chili and baked potatoes from Wendy's.  Again it's still a risk from cross contamination and I have gotten some before. 

 

Here are a few links for you.

I hope these links are correct, since I wasn't able to copy/paste the links this morning.


In Topic: Vodka

I try my best to stick with potato or non grain vodka.  My husband and I like Vikingfjord(potato).   We tried Ciroc that is made from grapes and we didn't like it and it upset both our stomachs.  I have drank Absolut (distilled from winter wheat) and did not have any issues with it at all.  So I guess you just have to find one that works for you.

Yes my oldest sometimes has insight well beyond his years.  There is a girl in his class that he is crushing on and he recently found out she is gluten intolerant too.  I thought it was cute, so I said to him that they could go on a gluten free date.  :wub: :lol:  He wasn't amused. 

 

IMHO if I was going to go through all the trouble to do a gluten challenge, I would ask for the whole celiac panel to include:  total IgA, IgA tTg, IgA/IgG DPG.  The labs that we have used in the past few years have changed to doing the DPG instead of the older tests.  Hopefully you can get it straightened out and I  haven't left any test out.  It's been awhile since we have had to have any of those tests.

The only other intolerance my youngest son and I have is to gluten free oats.
