In Topic: Tea Bags Sealed With Wheat Paste

Yesterday, 07:19 PM

Tea bags are heat sealed with PLASTIC thats why  Lipton is avoiding answering your question

Plastic, you say? Would you please provide your source for this. It is news to me. Even if true (which I doubt), that would not be a source of gluten.

[Rice pilaf] is usually prepared with a chicken or beef stock that most likely contains gluten.

"Most likely" is a bit of a reach in the context. The reference was to a menu, and if the restaurant makes their own stock, there would be no reason for them to extend it by adding flour. It is possible, but not very likely. Dehydrated stock products that you buy in the grocery store may have wheat added as a binder in the powder/cubes. Read the label. Liquid concentrates are more likely to be gluten-free.

So sorry to hear this. Over a period of twenty years, we have been owned by seven cats. One is still with us; she is 10-1/2 yo. We said goodbye to our 15-1/2 yo tortie a month ago--her kidneys were failing and she had stopped eating. They are part of the family. Hugs {{o}}

In Topic: Do You Eat gluten-free Oatmeal?

I had a reaction to gluten free oatmeal after I was first diagnosed. I tried it again periodically, and after about two and a half years was able to eat it again without feeling bad.

During the healing process, you may react to many things that do not contain gluten, but are still a challenge for the gut. Most experts suggest waiting at least six months before trying pure oatmeal. It was several years after my diagnosis that pure oatmeal was available in Canada.
