Topics I've Started

gluten-free Sun Screen

20 April 2006 - 06:18 AM

Has anyone had any luck getting confirmation from the manufacturer about gluten-free sun screen for kids. Hawaiian Tropic cannot guarentee that theirs is. Here' s the response I got from them:

Thank you for your email. With our present raw material information, we
can not say for certain that a product is Gluten-Free. We will not be
able to make any recommendation as to which of our products would be all
right for you to use. Based on this we don't feel it's appropriate for
us to make a recommendation that could affect the health of someone who
is sensitive to gluten.

Also what level of risk are we looking at? Is it that the gluten could be absorbed by the skin and get into his sytem or is it just if he would ingest some of it? (residue on hands, etc...)

Thanks in advance for your help!

Gluten-free Casein-free Choclate

Anyone found good gluten-free/cf chocolate? Also when that labels says "cocoa butter" is that a dairy ingredient?

Thanks for your help!

gluten-free Vanilla-flavored Rice Or Almond Milk

30 March 2006 - 06:44 AM

My 3-year-old was recently dx with casein intolernce (on top of the gluten intolerance). His doc suggested that we rotate soy/rice/almond milk with him. I'm wondering if there are any suggestions for a good-tasting vanilla-flavored ones.



Casein-free Replacement For Cheese

28 March 2006 - 07:41 AM

My 3-year-old was recently diagnosed with a dairy (casein) intolerance, on top of the gluten intolerance. Up until last week, we had been indulging in a great homemade gluten-free pizza recipe. Pizza crust from Chebe, Prego traditional spaghetti sauce for the sauce, hormel turkey peperoni and mozerella cheese. Well, nowcheese (and all dairy) are off limits. And what is pizza without cheese!!!!! So I went out in search of some alternative cheese product. I found some called RICE. The front of the package says "shredded dairy free mozerella-flavored cheese substitute". It is made from a rice beverage. The package says, melts like real cheese. So I thought "Ok, we'll try it". To our surprise it was really good, but then I read the back of the package. Low and behold, 'casein (a milk derivitive)' was in the ingredients list! Ugh, I am so nieve! Thinking that the front of the package says "dairy-free" I thought I was in the clear. I guess not! And I'm finding that alot of prodcuts that are labeled "dairy-free" are infact not, because they contain casein. How can they make those claims!?!??! I'll stop with the ranting here and get back on track.

Does anyone know of a caseing-free cheese substitute that would work for using on top of pizza? My 3-year-old would just be in cloud 9 if we can find a way to have pizza again! :)

Thank you!


Gluten-free Oats

27 March 2006 - 08:55 AM

For those of you that desparately miss that bowl of yummy oatmeal in the morning, there may be good news! I googled "gluten-free oats" and found the following website:


Check it out for yourselves, but it appears that they are safe for us. They are outrageously expensive, but thats probablly a big clue that they are legit. I was just so excited to find this, I had to share!

Anyone ordered from them before? Any comments/feedback.
