Help! Looking For Canadian Gluten Free Product List

Recommended Posts

I am a very newly diagnosed celiac and I am looking for a Canadian gluten free product list. I was lucky to find one but it is from 2004 and I think it's for US products and I know some of the products are made differently in Canada. If anyone has any information I could really use it.

There is not an up to date list, really. The Hamilton chapter has stuff on their site, but it's quite old. Are you looking for certain things? I can help you, I'm sure.

One thing I am having trouble finding is a gluten free Worchestershire Sauce. I know the Lea & Perrins in the US is gluten-free but not in Canada because it is made with malt vinegar. I don't even know of another company that makes it.

Unfortunately, there isn't one. The Lea & Perrins in the US is gluten-free, so if you have any US friends, have them send one up to you......

I use "The Wizard's" Organic Wheat-free Vegan Worchestershire sauce (made by Edward and Sons). Their site says it's gluten-free.

I certainly missed Worchestershire, and this one has lots of flavor.

Thanks for the tip, hopefully I'll be able to find it. Otherwise I'll just get my brother that lives in Boston to send me a case of Lea&Perrins.

I haven't founda complete list anywhere. However,. companies change their products so even if a complete list existed, it might not be accurate.

I've looked at different websites- eg Kraft, Pillers, etc. - to get the info that we need. Plus, we've had to call alot of the 1-800 numbers too.

It took some time to become familiar with the products that were safe and to know which products we needed to avoid. Sometimes we've gotten a little lazy recently and haven't checked the labels- DH just bought a package of Hot Kid rice crackers that were not gluten-free. We forgot to check because their crackers are usually safe. This incident made us realize that we need to always read the labels.

Shelley Case's book (The Gluten-Free Diet) has info about quite a few gluten-free products available in Canada.

Good luck,

Yes the site says April 12th is the pre-registration deadline. The workshop is very affordable ($10 for CCA members, $15 for non-members) but the lunch is a bit pricey ($30)

I am SOOOO excited! I live right around the corner from the Burlington Convention Centre!! A GLUTEN-FREE BUFFET?!!?!? That is my dream! Buffets are the one thing that I've missed most since going gluten-free! I bought Shelley Case's book to help me get going properly with this diet and she's speaking there! I find this so amazing! Thanks for letting us know!

Dear kali_mist,

I did a search on Google and found the site simplicity66 has on here. I am in the U.S., but bookmarked it for future use. Canada should have had more of these lists, you would think. Anyway, the penny site has a lot of products listed. The mainstream brands on there like Borden are great to have info on.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
