In Topic: Sunmaid Golden Raisins

Raisins are just dried grapes. They do not need refrigeration. Gin does not need refrigeration, although chilling it improves the drinking pleasure ;) I can't imagine why these would need to be refrigerated, but it will do no harm.

As to whether it works, je ne sais pas.

In Topic: Restaurant Gave Me Regular Bread And I Didn't Realize It

... and then they offered me a gift card, which I declined because I don't plan to return.

Hmm. So... no incentive for the restaurant to improve their practices, since you are not coming back.

I would have accepted the card even if I had no intention of using it, because the hope that I would return could be a motive to actually try to fix the problems.

Just saying.

The rules differ by jurisdiction. In Canada, no product containing oats can be labeled gluten-free because the regulation deems oats to be a gluten grain. You can, however, declare the product/ingredient as being pure wheat-free oats. I don't thing the "certified" adjective has any deifined meaning in Canada.


In Topic: Help, Please! I Don't Know How To Eat Out Or If I Can?

Eating out is always a challenge. It is one that you will eventually have to face. I am fifteen years into the celiac journey and it remains a concern where I ask a lot of questions if I don't know that the resto is celiac friendly. But many are, as previous posters have noted. Places where the kitchen prepares your meal to order are obviously better than places like Applebee's where they may just heat prepackaged meals.

In Topic: Significant Other Who Doesn't Understand :(

Jacquie and and I have been married for almost 34 years. It has worked that long because we both see it about giving and supporting. Each of has been through some tough times and health issues, and the other has stood by and given support.
 

I've been dating this guy for almost a year, but after i received my diagnoses he has become more impatient with my strict diet (he loves to eat everything and anything). I asked him about it tonight, and also gave him an out of our relationship if it's too much now. He didn't answer my question, but instead stated he thought I was being lazy about finding restaurants and am being too paranoid.


To me, that is a sign of deep problems in the relationship. Follow your heart, but my sense is that there is a fundamental problem there.

You will find unconditional support here.
