Hi and Welcome. :D

If you pm Noglugirl, she has a list she's put together that I believe is what you are looking for. :)

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Hi--

It actually is easy to eat completely free shopping at a normal grocery store, and more and more places are catering to the gluten free community (at Starbucks they had 3 different brands and several flavors of gluten free granola bars!!!).

Kraft will disclose any gluten, as will most companies. Here is my shopping list:

EnviroKidz cereal or granola bars (ie Gorilla Munch)

Health valley Rice Chexs

plain rice (either boil in bag or just unflavored bags of brown or white rice)

Old El Paso hard taco shells

salsa

Taco Bell refried beans (or I make my own)

Thai Kitchen noodle carts

McCormick seasoning

Classic Lays potato chips

Tostidos tortilla chips

fresh fruit

fresh/canned veggies

almonds

chicken/beef/pork

string cheese

unflavored coffee

eggs

Pretty much, if it comes in a box, it contains gluten. It is frustrating at first, but you will get used to it fast. I can cook any meal from scratch in less than 30 minutes, so if you post what you are craving, one of us probably has the recipe.

Here are some popular gluten free food lists: http://www.hormel.com/faq/faq.asp?akw=&id=37096

Hi!

Walmart's Great Value brand will say "Gluten Free" and/or list wheat.

As for regular food, it's best to stick with the brands that will clearly list their gluten. I'll post a link to a large list of those brands. I gave this list to my son's childcare provider and it made her life so much easier. There are also companies that maintain gluten free lists online such as Frito-Lay, Newman's own, Heinz/Ore-Ida and Hormel. If there are specific foods that you love that you think might be gluten free, then it's best to call the company directly. I wish you luck with the diet change, it does get easier. It doesn't seem hard at all when I go shopping now, and we are only five months in.
