Topics I've Started

Fisher Nuts

16 December 2014 - 01:16 PM

I just got some Fisher cashews as a Christmas gift. I usually buy Planter's because I know they are safe.  


I went to Fisher's website and they make the "Naturally gluten-free" claim and we all know that is meaningless if they are contaminated during processing. I wrote to them but haven't gotten a response yet.


What's also a bit odd is that the website says "gluten-free according to the FDA law of 8/5/13", but that was BEFORE the law went into effect (by about a week). And there is no "gluten-free" on the label.


So I'm here to ask if anyone else eats these and if you have had problems. I can always give them away but if they're OK I'd like to eat them.



New Rules In The Uk

14 December 2014 - 02:01 PM

I heard this on the BBC News this morning. Restaurants in the UK must now identify any and all of 15 allergens on their menus. (I hope this idea spreads to the US!)


The comments after the article are a bit distressing but then again, as celiacs, we are used to nasty comments from ignorant people. :angry:



Canyon Bakehouse Mountain White

08 December 2014 - 08:05 AM

Thought I'd write to warn everybody. The healthfood store had some yesterday so I thought I'd try it. It is NASTY!! It has that same bitter smell and taste that the Ener-G bread has. I can't get the aftertaste out of my mouth no matter how many times I brush my teeth. Maybe it's the tapioca that makes it taste so bad. Their 7-grain is my avorite bread but from now on if I want white bread I'll be getting Udi's.

The Cost Of Bread

03 December 2014 - 09:55 AM

So I bought some Udi's last night. The price has gone up to $7.41 a loaf. Canyon Bakehouse and Schar (the only other edible brands here) are even more.


I know I can get baking mixes but they are priced about the same and on top of that I would have to make them so there's no point.


I could buy flours seperately and make my own mix but again, the cost of the different flours is so high it would probably cost more in the long run.


I've been so enjoying the grilled cheese sandwiches but it looks like it's time to go back to using plain old rice as my staple and leaving bread as an occasional treat. :(

It Gets Better Every Day

22 November 2014 - 08:37 AM

Ever since I started I couldn't eat almonds. Cashews and peanuts were OK and I could do pistachios if I keep it to a minimum, but every time I tried almonds I got sick.


Well, the other day I went to get some cashews and I noticed they had the Planter's mixed nuts on sale. The way I've been getting stuff back at such a rapid pace I thought, "Why not?" so I got some. I've been particularly enjoying the almonds. They were always my favorite. And I have not had even the slightest reaction.


Tonight I'm going to the grocery store and buy a BUNCH of almonds in the shell. They are on sale (for the holidays) and of course they aren't as fattening in the shell as the ones in the can with salt.


Blueberries are next on my list. If I could get blueberries back I would be so happy!!
