There are certainly lots of cat lovers here!!! LOL!

One of my favourite gluten free snacks is from Australia. But I can't find them up here anymore. Snakatas crackers, they come in four different flavours, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Chives, Supreme Cheddar and BBQ. They are soooo delicious but the store that carried them up here closed down...... :( Your lucky to be down there and pig out on them, I miss them terribly!!!!

I must admit us Aussies are pretty lucky with our gluten free food. Our supermarkets (grocery stores) have a big selection of Gluten free food - it is becoming more and more common which is good for me :)

As for Sakata - they are like a staple food here now lol :P NOT just coeliacs - everyone eat them and they are redily available. Sorry to hear u cant get them anymore :(

Hello .. Welcome to the board. I'm another Canadian and I thought we needed to stick a dog in ... just for balance :lol:

I used to get some wonderful soup base cubes from Australia, but they diappeared off the shelf as well. I was told because they didn't have French on the label, just English. We are of course a country with TWO official languages. Too bad though, I really used a lot of those cubes :( However, we are fotunate that some new soup base products have shown up in the last couple of years. I've been on the diet for 17 years now, and still am amazed at the improvements since then. We have made great strides, although there is still a long way to go, especially in the restaurant education.

Do you have any problems with restaurants in Australia?

Hey, we Brit's like to use the 'O' too! :)

Where abouts in Oz are you?

My hubbies brother emigrated to Oz 5 yrs ago and now lives in Brisbane-we'd love to visit one day.

Glad you found this site-I've found it very informative.

Cute cat BTW!

Goodaye! :)

Thankyou all for your warm welcomes :)

Viola - thats too bad that they took the soup cubes off the market in Canada :( I assume it may have been the Massel brand that we get here. But yes - in terms of getting Gluten free items it has come so far in the last 6 year - and i can only imagine the difference in 17 years. Id say its only going to get better :) As for restaurants - I have had some good experiences in "normal" restaurants but still tend to "play it safe" and eat at advertised gluten free restaurants :) Takes the stress out of it all :)

Nikki-Uk - fellow "O" celiac lol ;) I live in Melbourne - but LOVE Brisbane and surrounds tho havent been back for a whille - the weather is so tropical up there :)

Thanx for ur welcome Rusia :D

Hi, I am bumping this up because I have a question.

How are the resources for you in Australia? I might be moving there, and I, obviously, am concerned about maintaining my progress towards getting healthy.

Thanks!

In my opinion the resources are fantastic!! Our supermarkets have a wide range of Gluten free becoz of the fact gluten-free has become somewhat "fashionable" nowadays. Our food labelling laws are of the highest standard - so there will NEVER be hidden gluten ! :) There are many restaurants (in Melbourne ne way) that cater for Gluten free. If there are any other queries i can help u with - just let me know :)

Hi, I am from SA near Adelaide. Would you believe that I couldn't even get a gluten-free cake with my coffee at DJ last week ? All they had said 99% gluten-free. I was so hungry. Fancy having to pack your own food in Adelaide !

Hi!

Im a Queenslander!

Great to see you here. Im not sure if youve found it yet but we have threads in the internatinal section for us Aussies, one is a general type and another is a discussion about products.

By the way what is Dj's? I've not heard of it?

If it's 99% - it ain't gluten free in my book!!

It might have traces of something in it

David Jones Food Hall has cakes from 'Gourmet Treats from Heaven' and Roberto's and cookies from the Byron Bay Cookie Co. They're gluten free :)
