    I just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping!  Zeer.com (www.zeer.com) is an easy-to-use Web site that offers a service, called Zeer Select, to those on a gluten-free diet.  Zeer Select is a database of over 30,000 mainstream products, each with its own gluten-free safety status.  I’m talking about easy-to-find items that you can locate in a “regular” grocery store.  I was able to simply search for the gluten-free status of a product by category, product name, or UPC code.  If I searched for products which turned out not to be gluten-free it would recommend a similar product that was gluten-free.
    One of my favorite features of Zeer.com was how each product was assigned a gluten-free safety status and symbol.  The safety levels are based on the ingredients as well as the manufacturers’ statements.  Not only are the products assigned their own gluten-free safety status, but the questionable or “not safe” ingredients are highlighted with links that further explain why particular ingredients are not considered gluten-free.
    Each item also included detailed product information, including its ingredients and nutritional facts (and not just its gluten-free status).  This is another great feature for those who are watching things like their sodium or carbohydrate intake, or those who might be looking for food items with extra fiber. 
    On top of all this, Zeer.com includes the manufacturer contact information in case you have any questions or concerns and need to speak directly to the company about the product. They are also continuously updating their site by adding or updating around 500 new products each week, and I appreciated that they list the date on which each product was last updated¬, knowing this really built up my confidence in this web site. 
    Whether you are new to a gluten-free diet or feel like your options are limited, I would highly recommend Zeer.com to help you prepare your next gluten-free shopping list!

    I happen to love thin crust pizza. The other day I had the good fortune to get my hands on a 12” Venice Bakery Gluten-Free Pizza Crust, and it looked as if it was made exactly how I like it—uniformly thin  throughout the entire crust. I was impressed by how perfectly formed this pizza crust was, and I also like the fact that it was larger than most crusts I’ve tried—it was big enough for my family of four.
    My family and I prepared the pizza together, and we added our favorite tomato sauce, cheese and gluten-free pizza toppings. We baked it in the oven as advised on the package for about 12-15 minutes at 475F, and the results of our minimal efforts were outstanding! The crust had excellent texture and tasted exactly how I expect great pizza to taste. My non-gluten-free family members (who can be more picky about some of the gluten-free products that I bring home!), absolutely loved this pizza!
    I would love to do an experiment with with this pizza and serve it to unsuspecting non-celiacs—I am certain that they would not only not detect that it was gluten-free, but would consider it an outstanding pizza crust!

    Petit Bites Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Coconut Nibbles are not your traditional coconut macaroon, and maybe that's why I might just consider it my favorite. 
    They have a beautifully golden shell on the outside, and a soft and chewy coconut inside, mixed with enough chocolate chips to satisfy any chocolate lover.  The best part is that I don't feel guilty after indulging in a few.  They are made with only five pure ingredients (sweet potato is actually second on the ingredient list, but you'd never know) and are free from preservatives, trans fats and cholesterol.  They are a must try if you love coconut and chocolate!

    If you're looking for a quality product that can make several different kinds of baked goods including muffins, pancakes, waffles, sweet bread, and brownies you definitely need to get VersaMeal's Whole Grain Gluten-Free Baking Blend. 
    This new product comes in a two pound bag and it does not contain starches, gums or cellulose that are used in most other conventional mixes. I tried the blueberry muffin recipe and they came out moist with a golden crust topping that was delicious!  These muffins are great for breakfast or a midnight snack or any time in between.

    Thanks for all that! No luck from PCP anyway -- just a referral to GI to go along with the referral to dermatology, and we're not sure about going to either one if it's just going to require months more of gluten. He's already at the end of his rope with two years of itching all over, so it's a bit much to ask. Presumably endoscopy would show intestinal damage, though, without adding more gluten, since it should take a lot longer to heal? He definitely has intestinal issues along with
    I thought it was the least I could do, after all the help and information that others here, such as yourself Squirmingitch, have provided me here. (By the way, I am on day 7 of the Fasano Diet, and just today I am really noticing a significant lessening in the itching and little DH blisters/bumps, and my skin just feeling "calmer" in general. But I've had good days like this before, here and there within the past five or six months, so I'm not claiming success quite yet.)
    Good info. Thanks for posting. It's always great when people post what they learned from a phone call, or email with a manufacturer.
