quick question, what brand of ice cream that you can buy in a tub at the supoermarket is safe for us to eat? Streets or Pauls or Cadbury or Bulla etc etc etc?

Cheers

Ty

:D

Don't know about across the ditch, but down here we have a product called Lite Licks with good flavour and texture that practically all types of allergies can eat, being dairy free, wheat free, etc. Unfortunately, it contains soy so I can no longer have it :angry:

Neroli

You'll need to read the labels, a lot of them contain glucose syrup made from wheat. The Coeliac Society will tell you it's safe as it's so highly processed there is no detectable gluten, however it made an enormous difference to me when I trialled cutting it out

I found Toppa in Woollies the other day, has "available at Woolworths or Safeway only" stamped on the lid.

The glucose in it is from maize. It was $4.99 for 2 litres so more expensive than Homebrand etc but very yummy

There are many types of ice cream that are gluten free. You need to read the labels but I find that Bulla are usually fine as are many others. Yes, some do have glucose syrup from wheat but as there is no detectable gluten it should be no problem for you. The label must state if it has a allergy causing substance such as wheat on it. If it states that is has wheat/gluten/barley than you cannot eat it. The exception to this rule is glucose syrup (wheat), caramel (wheat) or dextrose (wheat) as there is no gluten in these products due to processing.

Hi Nutralady :)

Interesting about the glucose syrup for you. It should not make a difference unless you were really very sensitive. Maybe give it another try and see if you notice anything.

Did you enjoy the concert ;)

Hi Amber yes I did one of the most amazing experiences of my life :D

I found when I cut out glucose syrup that my energy levels soared and the lingering brain fog went.

I also have Hashimoto's Disease , another auto-immune disease that kills the thyroid gland and can produce the same symptoms, fatigue/brain fog

I am wondering if it is because I went undiagnosed for so many years ( 47 years) that is why I am so sensitive. I'm having a followup endoscopy in September (which will make 12 months since diagnosis) to monitor the villi healing. Maybe I'll give the glucose syrup another try in a couple of months

Sorry but oats usually contain gluten! There has been a lot of debate about this but most celiac resources say not to eat oats. However if you are after gluten free breakfast ideas, 'lowans' brand rice porridge is really good, as is 'basco' brand honey rings, both should be at your local supermarket :)

Sounds good!

Do you know that if ice cream says 'glucose syrup from wheat' it is still gluten free? So if you look at all the ice creams in the icecream cabinet you will find many that are gluten free.

Has anyone tried the 'Vitality' brand of bread? It is now only available at some health foods stores but apparently may be in Safeway/Woolworths soon (at least in Victoria). There are serveral varieties - white, breakfast loaf, fruit, herb and garlic. Will probably be the same price as Country Life and Moores brand. Also they are planning to bring out a line of cakes and muffins.

I have heard a few different opinions about glucose syrup not just in ice cream but also in sweets and soft drinks. Honestly I'm a little confused, how is it that these are considered gluten free and why is it that some people react and others don't?

Glucose Syrup, Dextrose and Caramel from wheat are Gluten Free because they have been so processed that they have no detectable gluten. I know it is confusing when you read the 'wheat' in brackets but they have to do that because of the labelling laws. The vast majority of people who are coeliacs do not react to glucose syrup, dextrose or caramel. There are a few people who say they do react but they may be extremely sensitive or perhaps sensitive to another ingredient.

The Coeliac Society of Victoria tells its members that it is safe to consume products with glucose syrup, dextrose and caramel even if there is a (wheat) in brackets.

Hi,

I just wanted to tell you guys about a product I've just tried and loved.

'Peppercorn' brand now available in some safeways/woolworths sell sausages and patties that are low fat , low cholesterol etc but most importantly they are gluten free and really really tasty. There are a few different flavors, I tried the spicy italian sausage and they were SO good (I don't usually like sausages!)

Here is a link to their site:

I haven't tried those but will look out for them.

If you are craving ice cream cones there are Eskal brand ice-cream cones available in Coles which are reasonably priced.

Hello! I'm from Queensland in Australia and we probably get a lot of our products from the same manufacturers as those of you in New Zealand so that should be a bit helpful :)

I'm a self diagnosed coeliac/gluten intolerant now with all the symptoms but went off gluten before i was tested as it was just a hunch at first. A hunch that has stopped alot of problems i've had for ages but never would have thought it was coeliac related, thank goodness i'm a big googler!

In Australia we have labelling laws which say all common allergens must be listed on all our products (this includes gluten now) but i have had problems with a few products with no mention of gluten or wheat like candy lane choc coated peanuts from coles (i think they must be made on the same lines as their choc coated sultanas which do contain wheat)......i'm not sure if these laws are the same in NZ. I dont think alcoholic beverages have to list any ingredients at the mo', but i'm sure that will change soon, i just stick to yummy wine :D

I always find myself carrying food around with me, one of those little boxes of sultanas as well as a little bag of nuts and mother earth popcorn if i'm going to be out for a while keeps me going. there just doesnt seem to be anywhere convenient to eat without huge risks of cross contamination!

It would be nice to meet someone nearby....well in the same hemisphere at least lol :lol: I keep reading about all these great bread mixes available in the US and canada which we dont get, but i have enjoyed the basco bread mix, has a good texture and a mild flavour unlike all the premade ones i've tried....not sure if basco is available in NZ, its made by a company called greens.

I love orgran rice and corn pasta, and san remo spaghetti, chic nuts are delicious too (roasted crunchy chic peas with salt or tomato flavouring available in the health food aisle of the supermarket). i've been baking alot too and its been working out well but i have to restrict how many goodies i cook otherwise i eat them all and expand :P

anyway i must dash! hope to hear from anyone in my neck of the woods! :)

Dear Peggy..

Hi I am not in your neck of the woods, but i might be... If I do i will also be in Queensland, Probably near Brissy.. or possibly in Brissy.. My daughter is the "silly" as we call oursleves or our kids on another site i use also. In fact to give u a laugh 1 of the top Dr's in NY is From AU!! A Dr.Green.. Any way, I had heard that it was easier to get gluten-free stuff there than here. Yes it is readily available here, but at a price..

gluten-free foods are thru the roof. There seems to be no regulation on it and it costs way more.. I am not a good cook either so I cant try to make my daughter bread.. She hardly eats different foods anyway..She was picky b4 diagnosis too.. But she has gained so much weight and grown so much the drs' dont care as long as she eats healthy and stays gluten-free.. her numbers are finally going down.. Thank god.. any way I may be making a trip there-- dont know when yet tho.. it could be a few months to sometime next year.. idk... but any info would be great.. Thanks and Have a great day..

Cheers.

Lynnn

Hi Mouth (Lynn) from New York,

If you do come to Australia please feel free to ask as many questions as you like regarding gluten free foods etc. I don't live in Brisbane but I know of a few good places that I have discovered when we have visited Queensland. Gluten free is quite easy to find and there is good awareness in most places. I know what you mean about the cost of gluten free food. It is expensive here also. The bread seems to be going up all the time. It used to be $4.20 a loaf not so long ago and lately is is up around the $5.50 or even higher. I know food prices are going up all over the world generally but gluten-free foods are already expensive. Some brands are good value though compared to others. Ogran is quite good here price wise as is another brand called Eskal which do great chocolate cookies, wafers and even ice cream cones.

My daugther is also a celiac (she is 11 years old) so I can tell you all about where to find the food that kids enjoy though we are lucky in that she loves her food is quite the adventurous eater and will be happy to try most foods that adults would enjoy.

It is annoying that Kellogs aren't capable of producing one gluten-free cereal. There are so many such as cornflakes, rice bubbles, crunchy nut cornfakes etc that would be gluten-free if they didn't have malt extract. Malt extract makes no difference to the flavour either. You think they would realise that if they produced a few gluten-free cereals they would actually sell more.

Its sad that Kelloggs make so many different types of breakfast cerials but NONE of them are gluten free. I find it so annoying going to Coles or Safeway/Woolworths and seeing all these Kelloggs cerials and we cant touch any of them. We should write letters to Kelloggs and tell them its time for them to make at least one gluten free cerial. I went to the USA for Christmas/New Year in 2007 and got the EnviroKids cerial which is Gluten Free and very yummie!

well thats my 2c worth! :P

You can get Envirokids in Australia in health food shops. It is quite expensive though. I have seen it in some Coles stores also.

How was your experience in the U.S.A. re. gluten free food availability and understanding? We are planning on going next year and an unsure as to how difficult/easy it will be to source gluten free foods. Not to mention lack of awareness that I keep hearing about in the U.S.

We are thinking of going to Disneyland (which I have heard are excellent re. gluten-free food), perhaps driving north to San Fransisco then onto New York and a stop in Hawaii on the way back.
