Which Oils Do You Use?

Those should all be gluten free.  Not sure why one would be "bad for Celiacs".

 

I have right now - different olive oils (some are flavored), safflower oil, toasted sesame oil, a corn oil/canola mix.

No Idea how sunflower oil would be bad for Celiacs... be careful where you get information from on the internet.  All of those oils are going to be naturally gluten-free.
 
I use extra virgin olive oil the most for cooking. For things where I want browning or don't want the olive oil taste I use canola oil.  I get the canola/soybean oil blend or something along those lines that they have in stock.  I also use coconut oil, but for just a few uses like asian food, because some things don't go well with the coconut taste.

The reason why sunflower oil might not be too good for celiacs is probably that it is very high in omega-6 fatty acids (59%). Omega-6 fatty acids are pro-inflammatory (because they are converted into eicosanoids, which then bind to receptors on cells and trigger inflammatory pathways). 

See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24152446

 

Since people with auto-immune diseases have problems with inflammation as it is, some people might suggest reducing foods high in omega-6 fatty acids.

I always use extra virgin olive oil, sometimes Canola, and I have recently started cooking my tortillas in a teaspoon of coconut oil, and I must say it gives my tortillas an edge!
