Topics I've Started

Udi's New Packaging

13 September 2012 - 05:05 PM

I don't usually have a reason to check the expiration dates on my gluten-free bread because I never have it long enough to worry. But I've been cutting back and I have a 2-week old loaf of Udi's that's moved between the fridge and freezer a couple times. It doesn't smell quite right, but neither does my freezer, and there are some white spots on it, but I can't tell if they're mold or just the spots of flour that get more noticable when the bread is frozen.

The trouble is... There's no expiration date stammped on the bag or the clip! I don't know if this loaf was just skipped over or if this is standard now on the new packaging.

So I have two questions: 1) Has anyone else noticed a lack of expiration dates? and 2) How long is a gluten-free loaf safe to eat when stored in the fridge or freezer?

I'm going to go out and buy a fresh loaf in any case, but I never really thought about the expiration date.

Xcel Energy Center St. Paul

I have tickets to see a Wild game with my family next month and am wondering if anyone knows of gluten-free food or beer offered there? I know Target Field and the Twins take good care of us, but I can't find anything about the X. We taking the shuttle from the Liffey though and I just read that they have a gluten-free flourless chocolate cake so at least I have that to look forward to alongwith a big ginger before the game.

Gluten, Dairy And Soy Free Protein Shakes?

02 November 2011 - 05:28 PM

Oh great gurus of the Celiac board, I have yet to find a pre-mixed, bottled shake that is gluten, dairy AND soy free. If I relax my dairy and/or soy restrictions (I keep fairly loose restrictions now though I should be tighter) I can find one or two, but not if I want it free of all three. Any suggestions??? I know you guys must have something for me.

Living With Three Roommates Who "understand"

20 September 2011 - 05:51 AM

I'm living in a campus apartment this year-- full kitchen, big fridge and freezer :)-- with three other girls. They all cook fairly often and we all snack a lot so there are always crumbs around. One of them comes from a family of Celiacs though she doesn't have it herself so she understands the CC issue, but apparently we are all too busy to pick up after ourselves properly and I am becoming concerned.

I have separate (and well labeled) pots, pans, spatulas, etc. and usually wash my own dishes as soon as I'm done with them but occasionally something will end up near the sink and someone will decide to finally wash her own dishes and do mine as well (without switching to my dedicated gluten-free sponge. Grrr!). I appreciate the effort, but... And then there are the crumbs everywhere. I am almost tempted to do all my prep in my room on my desk where I know without a doubt there are no gluten crumbs.

I am not super sensitive (and actually I fall under the gluten intolerance category; my biopsy came after I started the diet and was negative), but I have noticed that tell-tale gut inflammation and bloating and the mild brain fog that comes with accumulated CC. If I ask questions while I watch one of my roommates cook and clean with questionable practices, I always get the "Don't worry. I'll clean it up. I know what you need" response but I'm starting to think they say this to shut me up.

Any tips??? I'm going crazy.... And I think part of that craziness can be attributed to the effects of the CC.
