Thought I would share! What I love about this is that it states at the beginning that they are clearly making fun of the fad diet, not the medical condition. Enjoy!



Ice Cream Made From Cashews? gluten-free?

16 March 2015 - 07:47 PM

I've been talking with a local ice cream company about their gluten free status. It all looks good in terms of their actual ice cream making process. They are very good about avoiding cross contamination. My last question was about their ice cream base. It's a vegan ice cream, so they make it from cashews. I asked them if the cashews themselves are free from cross contamination. I got this response back. What do you think? Does anyone know about the allergen policies for raw materials from other countries? 


"Regarding cashews...to be honest, we have not looked into the process by which the nuts are harvested. We use a specific cashew nut from a specific country but we are not sure how to inquire into whether or not these cashews have been contaminated through processing. Cashew is a global raw material commodity and we purchase it in quantities numbering in the tons, so it would be highly unlikely that the nuts have gone anywhere near equipment or even processing plants that also handle gluten-containing materials."

Hi everyone!


I'm taking a trip to see my boyfriend's family for Christmas. They are so sweet to me in terms of everything gluten free. This year, they would like to try to include me in a few restaurant plans but want to pick a place I can eat at. I've called a few places that they've heard had gluten free options, but many places seem to be catering to fad dieters and are not safe enough for Celiacs to eat at.


Does anyone have a restaurant you could recommend for any of the following areas?


San Francisco 


Grass Valley

Nevada City


Thank you so much!

Anyone Know How Long Badia Spices Have Been Gluten Free?

01 October 2014 - 11:44 AM

I've been using some single spices (nutmeg, allspice, ect) from Badia. I know that their current official statement is that their single spices are definitely gluten free. However, I just realized that I had bought them five or six years ago (and who knows how long they were sitting on the grocery store shelf), so they don't have the official "gluten free" stamp on them. I called the company, and the representative told me that she couldn't verify that a slightly older container was gluten free.


I did a search on this board and saw that someone from 2010 contacted Badia and they said that the single spices are gluten free. 


The lovely woman from Badia was so sweet and said she'd send me a fresh container of Allspice because she wanted me to feel extra safe  :wub: . So I will be getting some fresh spices anyway, but I'm curious -


Does anyone know what the Badia's gluten free statement was before 2010?


(I would love to make a chai tea latte right now but am waiting for my new spices  :P )
