I had personally made myself go gluten free six months ago when a sibling was diagnosed.
The purple Aussie shampoo, the kiss my face products for lotions,sun screens and lip balm, and talc powder is Burts Bee's.
I have my Well Woman check up in 2 days.
And I am going to ask my doctor to start me on the tests.
Best of Luck to you!!

Thank you for your interest in Garnier products.

We do not have prepared information for the ingredient information you requested for our entire product line. We would need a specific product name and formula in order to research your ingredient question. However, all the ingredients we use in a product are listed on the package or the label of the product itself. For products too small to accommodate the list, a separate ingredient list is available on the display unit in the store for your convenience.

Since some ingredients are known by more than one name, we use the standard industry names for ingredients as found in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary. This dictionary lists FDA-recognized names. A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.

If you would like to request an ingredient list(s), or information for a specific product(s), please call us at 1-800-442-7643, Monday to Friday, 9 am to 7 pm, ET.

We appreciate your interest in Garnier and we hope this information is helpful.

Hi...I'm new to this too. I just got diagnosed last week :( I went to Stop n Shop yesterday, and was able to find some gluten-free stuff there. The best thing I found was Rice Chex and Corn Chex cereal by General Mills. The cereal is delicious! I've had so many symptoms, but I was always diagnosed as having an ulcer, being stressed out, or chronic fatigue syndrome. Since I cut the gluten these past few days, I can honestly say I feel a little better, but the cravings are driving me insane!!

In Topic: Baking Gluten Free

01 June 2009 - 10:29 AM

I am 5 days on the Gluten free diet - and while I still have an occasional pain here or there - I can't believe how much better I feel!! Wow. I can't even articulate what a difference there has been in my life. You do not realize how bad you were/had gotten until you are actually feeling semi-normal again. I have multiple food allergies/intolerances that I haven't eliminated completely yet - but just eliminating gluten has helped tremendously. Anyhowwwww...on with my actual question.

Can anyone provide any tips for baking gluten free bread in a regular bread loaf dish. I am a complete novice and relied on convenience foods pre-gluten free. If I cooked it was very basic things and it was never baking because my oven really isn't the best. My mother bakes all the time and could make my breads if I asked her for help.

I have been sticking with Potatoes, Rice, Fresh meats only, eggs, steamed veggies, and Chex cereals so far. I have not ventured out to buy any gluten free products at the store. ( Wait...I bought some De bale or something like that Rice pasta and Spaghetti at WalMart because I didn't see the Tinkyada brand there, and a Rice bread loaf....yuck!!).

I am really looking to see if I can have something resembling a sandwich bread, or even maybe a french bread or itialian bread that is crustyish. Even a cornbread recipe would be great. If I could fins some sort of bread or cracker that is gluten free that I like and could make quick sandwiches with to take to work I would be thrilled. I tried a rice loaf at the store, and it had the oddest texture I had ever tasted. The tast wasn't horrible and I really tried to finish it - but wow. I toasted it and it was just very odd to be that everythig but the crust had this hard gel/puddinglike texture. It was moist-like even after toasting. Just very odd and almost eggy tasting too. I know I am not going to find bread that is like real bread (because it isn't) - but what is everyones favorite bread company as far as something that is pre-made or a boxed type of mix. I may be too unskilled to mix my own flours even if it is cheaper.

I have stores near me like ( Kroger, Meijer, and WalMart) . We have one local health food store that is locally owned called "Apple-A-Day". The HealthFood store is very helpful and carries some items but it is very pricey.

If you folks would post what you feel the best tasting bread mix is, or the best pre-made bread is I will go on a mission to find it :)

Thanks guys!!
