Gluten In Speaking Chinese

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I am new to this site, just signed up. I have been reading many articles and it's lifted my spirits quite a bit. I thank you all for that. I didn't realize there are so many of us. I thought it was just me and my mom!

INFO: My mother has been diagnosed with celiac disease for about five years I guess and myself over a year or so. Both of us are gluten-free as much as possible. Both born and raised around St. Louis, MO USA area.

My concern is my girl friend is from China along with mom and dad of course. I was wondering how do I say gluten, and other terms correctly in Mandarin. Shanshan my girl friend, has been very supportive and helpful as much as she can be, but mom and dad in China don't really understand what I have exactly.

any suggestions or ideas?

thanks,

scott

I don't know how helpful this will be but maybe try ordering the Triumph Dining cards. They have a card that is in Chinese (english on the front, chinese on the back) and although I don't know if it's Mandarin Chinese I'm sure you could call and ask. Maybe showing them that and letting them read it would help.

There is also a free internet translation site, where you can post something in Engluish & get a translation in another language. I do not know what the site is called but you could google it.
