In Topic: Do You Ever Break Down And Eat Gluten Every Once In A While?

14 September 2014 - 09:00 PM

Imho all the hassle that comes with eaten a piece of food containing gluten, the recovering and the sickness, it's not worth it.

My thinking, too.

In Topic: Wheat Glucose - I've Read It May Be Safe But It Is Difficult To Believe

14 September 2014 - 11:03 AM

Yes, to both. Glucose and maltodextrin are highly processed items. There is no detectable gluten in them, using the most sensitive tests, even when they are produced from wheat. The Canadian Celiac Association lists both as safe.

In Topic: Shared Facility Soy Sauce

I don't generally worry about shared facilities. For example, if you buy a coffee at Starbucks, it is a shared facility (as are 99.99% of restaurants).

In Topic: Getting An Answer From Pepsi Or Coke Is Like Pulling Teeth

Both wheat and soy are top allergens covered by FALCPA and must be disclosed. Neither PepsiCo nor the Coca Cola Company put anything with either ingredient in any of their carbonated beverages. They won't make a "gluten-free" or "soy-free" claim for legal reasons--they don't test incoming ingredients to see if one of their suppliers has an accidental CC problem. Is CC possible? Yes. It it probable? Definitely not.

In Topic: Hotel Waffle Makers With gluten-free Waffle Mix?

10 September 2014 - 05:13 AM

...and then there is all of this.... http://www.celiac.co...ents/Page1.html  all 122 items on this list according to my cut and paste into excel...

While that list is a good thing to look at when starting out, you don't need to memorize it. It was originally developed before FALCPA went into effect in January of 2006. Since then, wheat can not be hidden, but must be disclosed clearly using the word "wheat" either in the ingredients list, or in a "contains" statement. Rye and oats don't hide. That leaves barley, which can be listed as malt. So read the label, and look for the words wheat, rye, barley, malt or oat. If you see any of them, avoid the product. That is what I do, and have been doing for over 14 years.

The hotel waffle maker? Not a chance.
