In Topic: Tortillas

22 March 2015 - 01:49 PM

I'm not quite sure what you're saying here, but... Corn tortillas are generally gluten-free, but some are produced in factories that also make flour tortillas, raising concerns of cross-contamination. I have never encountered a problem, but completely understand the need of others to be extremely cautious. I tend to purchase corn tortillas labeled "gluten-free" because I appreciate the manufacturer's decision to make sure I know the food is safe.


That being said, I have encountered what are being marketed as "artisinal" corn tortillas, and these are clearly made with gluten. I would be particularly cautious about buying tortillas from manufacturers who do this because the chances of cross-contamination on shared equipment increases.

In Topic: Eating Out At Indian Restaurant

I agree that Indian food is generally one of the safer dining-out choices (and, once you get the hang of blending spices, a great deal of fun to cook at home as well!). @kenlove's list is excellent -- and I'd only add that you can find lots of hidden gems on the menu if you explore. Back before I had to eliminate gluten, I would devour the fried okra at my favorite local place. Seriously, never had okra that taste so wonderful!

In Topic: Negative Lab Tests...and Still Be Gluten Insensitive? What Other Tests?

03 September 2014 - 07:55 PM

Acid reflux (GERD) was what started me on this path. I'd always had digestive issues, but had chalked it up to normal. Alas. After a year or so of every test and medication possible, I was still in agony. Nothing was improving. My doctor suggested (finally!) dairy elimination and celiac testing. The dairy wasn't the issue. The celiac tests were inconclusive -- blood, yes; endoscopy, no -- but a gluten-free diet changed my life. My doctor is in the "celiac is a spectrum" camp, and believes I have it. I know that I am healthy, happy, and gluten free.

In Topic: Need A Book Suggestion For Newly Diagnosed Person

20 July 2014 - 08:42 AM

here is a list of some ebooks at amazon. prices really vary. it's hard to filter on just "guides" rather than cookbooks. you can also preview the contents before you buy to see if the book goes in the direction you want. if you're an amazon prime member, some books are free through the kindle lending library (something i *really* need to check out sometime).
