Topics I've Started

Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned Soup

14 June 2015 - 05:52 PM

Hi - Does anyone know if Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned is gluten free?  Does anyone with Celiac eat it safely?


The ingredients list both Maltodextrin and Potato Maltodextrin, so I'm wondering about that first Maltodextrin.  It's a Con Agra product, if that matters.  When I did a search here, the only recent posting was about a recall in spring, 2014 of the microwavable version because WHEAT wasn't listed in the ingredients (!).


Thanks.  I buy these for my kids and only just tonight thought to look at the label to see if I could have some.   Though I don't love that they had to do that recall ;-)

Hair Products/leave In Conditioner?

08 June 2015 - 08:13 AM

I know people generally don't worry about hair care products (shampoo and rinse-out conditioner). I've used my same shampoo and conditioner for years and just try to rinse without getting any in my mouth.  But I want to step up my routine and use some leave-in products (conditioning cream, anti-frizz, styling cream, etc.) and wonder if I have to worry about a stray hair strand or two getting in my mouth-  my hair is long.


Does anyone worry about these things?  Should I be?  Are there Gluten Free good quality styling products?  I specifically want to use Devachan products, but most seem to have some sort of wheat in the ingredients.



Quinoa Reaction?

03 June 2015 - 02:06 PM

My company cafeteria sometimes does a quinoa specialty station, with sauces and add-ins.  I've had long talks with the manager there about my Celiac and they've been extremely accommodating - they were very pleased to tell me about this new option.  We've discussed all the ingredients, and they have a separate prep area, so I felt quite confident about eating from this new station.


But, I have to say that each of the three times I've had it, I've had kind of a 'rumbling' tummy afterward.  I'd like to think it's not gluten, but maybe just more quinoa than I'm used to in one meal.  Is it common to get a bit of a reaction from quinoa, that is not gluten-related? Or should I fear some sort of cross contamination?


It's black quinoa if that makes a difference, and I eat plenty of quinoa otherwise, though maybe not this much at once.



Lawry's Balsamic And Herb Marinade

I know this is McCormick and their labeling is easy, but I'm just wondering if anyone's used this successfully. I looked at the label quickly in the store but now can't get to it.

Arthritis And Constipation?

04 May 2015 - 07:16 AM

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about two years ago, and I feel so much better.


My 84 year old mother has been complaining about her daily constipation and arthritis feeling much much worse lately.  Am I right in thinking she should try going gluten free for a month to see if that helps?


I know there's a genetic component, so that may be part of it, but even if she doesn't have Celiac, will this help her at all, or will it likely be a placebo effect (assuming she really sticks to it).


And yes, I know that at 84, these are not awful complaints, but she's a very active person and I hate to see this slowing her down.
