Updated response from Nuvita as of Feb 2014... Contacted them via Facebook re: gluten-free status of hemp seeds. Received the following reply from one of their reps Megan Hunt, who has her own dietary restrictions. Appreciate their being so up front & honest.. please feel free to contact them via Facebook.  "The issue with hemp is that it is naturally a non-gluten food. But most hemp is grown in Canada (and that is where ours comes from), because it is not legal to grow in the U.S., there is a risk of cross-contamination from nearby wheat fields. One of Canada's major crops is wheat. What this means for us is that often our hemp tests as gluten-free, and meets gluten-free certification requirements, but occasionally it does not, because of very low levels of blow over from nearby wheat fields. We are actively pursuing gluten-free certification, and have recently obtained it for our chia and coconut flour. But we are still in-process trying to source hemp that we can guarantee is gluten-free. Considering your level of sensitivity and the direct impact on your health, I can't recommend our hemp products for you at this time. I would also advise you to be very cautious about any hemp products that do not carry the gluten-free certification symbol. Please let me know if you have any other questions or if there is any way I can help. Wishing you vibrant health and wellness." 


In Topic: Domino's Gluten Free Pizza

Eating out takes some finesse & often is best to take something along if possible. Realize your son has definite likes & this is going to be part of your challenge. I realize he's likely honed in to various things due to texture, taste, temperature & other sensory "cues" that are comfortable for him. However, you want to make pizza at home for your son, check out Senza brand as it's free of many of the major allergens & produced in a dedicated facility: http://www.senzaglutine-glutenfree.com .  Senza as well as Conte's (http://www.contespas...m/specialty.htm) also has frozen raviolis available. You can e-mail either & they are kind as well as helpful with any questions you might have.  Both Senza & Conte's also sell in a few retail stores (check with co. for possible retailers in your area).  You also can shop with Senza online with free shipping.  Bob's Red Mill or Pamela's brands have pizza mixes & if you go to www.vitacost.com you can check out some of the major gluten-free company products. You can check out the ingredient lists as well as read reviews of the products that might help you get started.  I have no interest in any of these companies or products... it's just my "go to" ideas I've developed for myself. ;) Hope this helps in some small way.
