I'm learning so much from this website, but as soon as I learn something I think of more questions. I was wondering can we have coke, canned kidney beans, oatmeal? What make up and toothpaste is gluten free?

coke is ok. (and i believe pepsico says all of their carbonated drinks are gluten-free.) oatmeal is all right as long as it's made from gluten free oats (so quaker doesn't count). and canned kidney beans that don't have any extra little goodies (like natural flavors) should be ok. hope that helps.

Some Celiacs react to gluten free oats, others don't. Most oats in the US are contaminated and gluten free oats are hard to find and expensive. I steer clear, but that's my own personal preference. To me, the risk isn't worth damaging my body.

Coke is definitely gluten free. Crest toothpaste is gluten free. Kidney beans should be fine, just make sure the only ingredients are kidney beans, water, and possibly salt.

I know that it very difficult in the begining.

As said, Pepsi and Coke are gluten free.

I would suggest that you check "Nini", a forum member who has compiled a wonderful list for, as we call "newbies". You can down load the files that she has so graciously combined to help new celiac.

You can find her name under "members" on the top of the page. And to reach her list, click underneath her name to bring up her "Newbie Survival List". It is a wonderful gift from her and it will be invaluable to you, to start with. (Or any other post that you see her name, just click on her name)

But, as history tells, she will be here soon to help out.

It does get easier, trust me. :)
