The small health food store near my house doesn't have it and won't order it for me. Does anyone know where I can buy it around London?

Thanks so much!

Hi 'kschauer' and 'nikki-uk',

If you are a confirmed Coeliac you can get it on Prescription on the NHS.

.

Tapioca flour has become a marginal health requisite for Coeliac disease suffers in the UK.

.

You can check out here for all the information on the subject.

.

Hope this is of some help.

.

Best Regards,

David

Thanks, I didn't know I could get it through the NHS.

nikki-uk, Holland and Barrett told me they didn't carry it all, maybe the clerk meant just at his location.

Thanks!

Yes, although I should add most GP's will only do prescriptions if you are a biopsy proven coeliac.

CUK have some more info re: prescription food :)

I'm not in the UK but HK influences some of the english labels in our area. Tapioca flour here is referred to as cassava flour.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).
