New To Celiac......

Recommended Posts

We just found out earlier this week that my step son has Celiac Disease. We are FULL of questions and I'm hoping that some of you more experienced out there will be able to help us. We are still learning, but is there anywhere online we can go to find a list of brand name products that are gluten free. I don't necessarily mean the products you can find in the gluten free section of the health food store, I mean normal every day products....some of the less obvious ones. We need all the help we can get. My step son is 4 1/2 and he pretty much can't eat anything that he loves anymore. It is going to be a hard transition, as I'm sure you've all experienced. Any advice?

Yes, we have a wonderful member of this board, who has done a great deal of research on behalf of the new people comming on board. She has created a "newbie survival kit". It will be a gold mind for new celicas.

Please do a search for member's name: "nini", click below her name and you can down load a wealth of information.

Many companies have a list of their online products for that company. I know that fritolay has a list and you can also look in the site index (on the left side of the board) they have a list of safe and forbidden ingredients

Nini's survival kit is also very good and I would look into it and talking to Nini.

Welcome to the board! We are happy you have found this site...is it by far the best resource out there.

Are you looking for specific products ... that might be easier to get you started. Ingredients change at any point, so its hard to put out "lists" per se. Reading ingredient labels will be the best thing you can learn to do, because then you can look at anything and 98% of the time, know if its safe or not.

Check out the book in my signature...it is a wonderful resource. I wish I had it when I was first diagnosed. You can find it on amazon. I refer to it often! He is an expert in the Celiac field.

Good luck, and let us know what we can do! It is a steep learning curve, I won't deny that! But, once you figure it out, then you get a new routine. And we will be here to help!

Wow, thank you guys for being so helpful! The resources on Nini's website are awesome, I couldn't ask for a better starting point. My step son spends so much time with other members of his family, and they will probably all need to have as much information as possible. You've all been so helpful, thank you so much.
