Are you stating that Torani's website is out of date? If so, what is your source?

 

http://www.torani.com/faqs Under product-related questions.

I  am stating that caramel color and vanilla flavoring are not a gluten concern any more.   If you review the thread, you may find some valuable information that you seek. :)

 

EDIT:  Peter provided some relevent links, while I pondered my reply.

I'm just not entirely sure that caramel color or vanilla flavoring is the issue with the Torani syrups. The list of the ones that contain it isn't all inclusive of all of the tan or caramel-colored syrups or ones with vanilla flavor, for that matter. I'll just stay away from them -- I was just bringing it up as an example of gluten-containing ingredients not being disclosed on the label when the manufacturer states on their website that it does contain gluten.

 

For example, the salted caramel does not contain gluten.

It can be if you use a lot of specialty items. However, most meals can be made gluten free. Rice or potatoes are good as a starch for meals.

Do you have a crock pot? Toss in some chicken, with some sort of veggie, and let it cook it.

And don't forget, ziplock bags are your friends. Make big meals, portion them out and freeze them. I only cook once or twice a week. I have a freezer full of meals I made myself that I just grab and microwave during the work week.

In my area of northern California, I find Sprouts supermarket to be reasonable. One of our big costs is bread... my wife loves bread and has not been able to give it up even though I try to cook other whole foods. They often have Udi's bread on sale and I buy a whole bunch and freeze it.

 

I agree with other people who have posted here. There are lots of foods that are naturally gluten free, so switch to those kinds of foods. If you stick to things that are traditionally made from wheat it get's difficult to keep food costs low.

 

For instance, buy corn tortillas which are gluten free from several low cost brands rather than a tortilla made from a mix of other gluten free flours and made to "look" like other wheat tortillas or wraps.

 

I have a question to anyone out there that may be able to answer it. How does anyone afford to shop glutin free is there a good place to shop that is affordable. I have a house of 5 and my pockets aren't deep enough to afford the cost of glutin free foods. Help

It does sound like you're getting glutened by something -- I would start digging. Check for sources of cross contamination first. Pots that have had pasta cooked in them previously (I was reacting to mine because it had a white film inside that we could not scrub off that I can only assume is gluten from wheat pasta), strainers, anything porous. Check your medications and/or vitamins. Do you drink herbal tea? Some of those have gluten. Lipstick/gloss/balm?

I thought I had all of the gluten out of my diet and then 6 months in I began accidentally glutening myself with some fries I thought I had checked. It was minute amounts, and only every few days, but it was enough to make me feel slightly ill. I had to go back to checking every label before I ate anything (not a bad practice anyway). I think you might want to recheck your labels and cooking appliances.  Check your baking suppies too - sometimes stuff like sugar or baking powder can be contaminated.

 

As for the cost of easy meals on the go, I agree with the others that you'll need to do prep work and use things like crockpots. We eat a LOT of leftovers, and that helps. You can always push back dinner and eat later and make some protein bars or smoothies to pack along on the go.

are you keeping a food journal?  oh, snap, are you kissing your husband.  that got me in the beginning!   

 

honestly, everybody starts out bumpy.  i cried in the grocery store :(  i quit eating, too, for a day or so - i still do every now and again when something has got me and i can't figure it out.  even now, i get all carried away and eat something with many components (ie:  cuban sandwich yummmmmm) but it made me sick so i ate one of the components (ham, cheese, pork, pickles, olive salad) each day to see what was giving me heartache.  (turns out it was the vinegar in a particular brand of olive salad - said it was gluten free but my guts begged to differ loolz)  so i switch brands or make my own.  

 

hope you are feeling better soon

It is so frustrating to me. I cant figure it out and I read everything but then I hear that there are other things that seem to give people problems. Like Whey because things i get glutin free say they have whey in them and also diary. I take lactose pills but im not sure if it's helping......

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
