In Topic: Glucose From Wheat

07 November 2014 - 03:28 AM

Good timing of this question. I was going to ask the same thing. Tonight I was looking at "After Eight" chocolates. The label says glucose syrup which wouldn't flag anything for me. However, the Japanese label (I live in Japan) translates it as "mizuame" which is a sweetener BUT they say what it was derived from and it says wheat. I put them back. Then I came back to Google this and various sites said glucose syrup is so processed there is no gluten even if it was originally derived from wheat.......

I love EOS lip balms. I have found them at Costco where there is a set of 6 (I think) different flavors. Eos makes hand cream too which is also gluten free.

Problem with Japanese chocolates is that I find them "waxy." Maybe soy lecithin? I just ordered some chocolate from the US. Not as convenient as popping in to a store to get some but that may be a good thing.


I did notice last week I was extremely exhausted. I took a nap every day. Since I quit the chocolate a few days ago I have been fine! I haven't felt tired or sluggish at all.

Gluten is EVERYWHERE in Japan. It is extremely hard to avoid especially if you are eating out. I have lived in Japan 20+ years and the last 3 have been gluten free. I never eat out. There is only one sushi place that I go to and that is with my own gluten-free soy sauce.

In Topic: Low Gluten Meal (Really?)

I've returned from my trip. The flight attendants asked me if I ordered a gluten free meal. That was the terminology they used. At any rate, I ate the fruit and the yogurt and what I brought on the plane. The "main dish" was some sort of fish in sauce. No way was I going to touch that! Both flights I brought way more food than I needed. No problems with airport security at all.
