Lindt 85% Chocolate Bar

25 October 2014 - 12:41 AM

Since going gluten free almost 3 years ago I have relied on Lindt 85% chocolate bars as my go to chocolate (I live in Japan so limited choices). The allergens have always been listed as "may contain: soy, nuts, milk". Not a problem for me. Last night I went to buy some (I stock up!) and I noticed the label looked different. I read it and sure enough, the allergens now read "may contain soy, nuts, milk, sesame and wheat."

 

I have no idea why this has changed. It still says "manufactured in France." The Japanese Lindt homepage still does not list wheat. The UK homepage does list wheat and the US homepage does not!!! I wrote to the company but it was after hours on Friday.

 

Any other Lindt eaters notice a change????

 

 


Low Gluten Meal (Really?)

09 September 2014 - 06:04 AM

I am booked on a Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo to LAX in a few days. I called to book gluten free meal. I have no intention of eating whatever they provide, but I figured I'd rather have gluten-free sitting in front of me than a gluten meal. Anyway, JAL doesn't offer gluten free. They have a "low gluten" meal. I told the agent that was ridiculous. Of course he couldn't do anything about it and probably he doesn't even know what gluten is. I booked it and will see what it is exactly then maybe I can write a letter to the airline after the trip explaining that low gluten is like giving someone with a strawberry allergy "just" 2 strawberries instead of 5!

 

 


Lipstick/lip Gloss/balm

05 September 2014 - 04:02 PM

I have completely given up on wearing color on my lips because whenever I pick up a tube of something the ingredient list is overwhelming. Does anyone have a go to brand that is gluten-free that I can find in any drug store or dept. store? I will be in So. California soon to shop.


Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo/fava Bean Flour Recipe: Help

24 July 2014 - 03:34 PM

I have a bag of this flour that I need to use. What I don't have is xanthan gum. Most recipes call for it. I am craving a pizza! Does anyone know of a pizza crust recipe I could use with this flour but no xanthan gum???? Thanks!
