Nivea and Pam (cooking spray) are not very gluten free friendly. I recently called both and they said:

1. Nivea - "we do not require our - oh dang the word is on the tip of my tongue - their suppliers to say where the ingredients come from ie. hydrolyzed protein...only food has to follow a law..." I told them Dove follows the International cosmetic_____ and require their suppliers to say what grain an ingredient is derived from. So I use Dove too.

***Dove sensitive skin has gluten! I sent my husband out hunting for it and after he got home and gave it to me I read the ingredients and it has I believe it is wheat germ in it. I was totally bummed but actually the Pro-Age and the rest are just fine.***

2. Pam - ConAgra foods said "...read the package and we use wheat in a lot of products!..."

Rice Dream milk substitute was a surprise to me!

Fortunately, their frozen vanilla "ice cream" substitute is okay, though.

This has always bothered me. How could the frozen stuff NOT have gluten? It would seem they would use the same "milk" and turn it into the frozen stuff. I don't let my daughter have it because I think it is suspect.

Mentos

Some sorbets. I can't remember the brand but it contains glucose syrup derived from wheat.

Things at some fast food places such as tortilla strips and chicken breast.

How about the glue that holds the toilet paper on the roll! :blink:

Well at least we wash our hands after we touch it!

(Chamin' and Cotonelle brands are gluten-free.)

Bird seed for the outside bird feeder. (So busy looking for nuts that I missed the gluten notice and got SICK!!!)

Dog food and dog bones

Minute Maid, Dole, and Tropicanna juices (Only 100% juice drinks are gluten-free. Pure OJ is fine, but Banana & Pineapple OJ is not gluten-free. Drives me crazy!)

Tea. Had to toss a box of lemon tea once. Good thing I looked.

Other people's cosmetics. Men with an unsupportive wife/girlfriend who doesn't check her lipsticks, etc. probably have a lot of problems.

CAN WE ALL PUT DOWN THE BRANDS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT? AND IF THERE IS A SAFE BRAND ie. paper towels/toilet paper...

I never thought about stickers or fingerpaints and am now totally stressed out b/c my 6 1/2 y/o has celiac disease and of course she uses all that in school and home. I feel like such an idiot!!! :o

So anyway if we could get a list of our own and share, of things that are foresaken or are safe for us. I have a 10+ page word doc of info that I have shared with new celiacs and have added some of the stuff I read today on this post...BUT not to beat a dead beat but lets so naming brands if that is possible.

Thank you and take care,

Jacqui and family

!

as far as i know, there is no gluten in glucose syrup from wheat - have read this on numerous "safe foods" sites from coeliac assns around the world.

Kissing. If your wife/husband/significant other eats gluten, they can gluten you.

Fake nails. I got a reaction from getting "pink and whites" (french style fake nails). Never did figure out if it was the acrylic powder or the nail polish that was causing the reaction because of the language barrier.

:(

some nuts/seeds are "dusted" with wheat flour or barley flour (like sunflower seeds) - I think the purpose is to keep them dry and from sticking together.

Grill charcoal with gluten surprised me (would that be Kingsford brand?).

Hot dogs (unsure of brands as we don't eat them anyway)

tomato and spaghetti sauces (my Italian grandmother never used thickener of any sort in her home-made sauce)

TOILET PAPER AND PAPER TOWELS ARE OF NO GLUTEN CONCERN. This has been discussed at great length in the past.
