Best Of List

Recommended Posts

I was thinking that we should make a best-of list for various categories of gluten-free food. I'll post this thread so we can come up with categories and nominees, and then we'll make it into a poll on a new thread.

Here's what I have so far for categories

-Bread (frozen)

-Bread (mix)

-Cake Mix

-Cookies (prepared or mix)

-Pasta

-Pizza/Pizza Crust

-Pretzels

-Crackers

-Flour Mix

-Cereal

-Bagels

-Pastries (donuts, etc.)

Anything else? I was thinking this would be helpful for newbies, as well as everyone else who struggles to find good gluten-free foods. I'm sure we've all tried some pretty bad ones, let's see if we can spare anyone else!!

Add your categories and favorite products!!


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

-Pasta-- rice noodles or buckwheat soba noodles hands down
