Would You Eat This?

Recommended Posts

I was not sure where to post this, but I contacted cheesecake factory because that is the food I will probably most miss and even though sugar is out of question for the moment with me, I would like to one day eat a cheesecake again....

Here is there response:

Thank you for your email!

Our Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake is gluten free. However, the pan that is baked in is sprayed with a pan release that contains a trace amount of flour.

Enjoy!

There Godiva cheesecake is so yummy! I have had it so many times before being diagnosed. What about cutting off the bottom and sides??

Nope. If their pan were to be sprayed with something that released just a trace of dog poop would you cut off the bottom and the sides?

Insert little green icon here!

Thank them for their response but kindly and gently let them know that their pan release agent makes the product toxic to millions of people - including you - and rather than being able to enjoy it you will no longer be able to be their customer because their product makes you sick.

Ask them if it is so important to them to use that pan release agent. Perhaps if they realized there are at least 3 million customers they are driving away by using it, they would reconsider how important it really is and maybe switch to a safer one. :)

I would avoid it just because it is Godiva. Godiva is one of those brands that puts barley malt in pretty much everything, and won't give any definitive gluten statements. "Company states none of their products are gluten-free due to potential cross-contamination."

The good news is, cheesecake is pretty easy to make at home. There are some good recipes on here, or you can do a regular recipe with no crust, which is generally where the gluten is.

Also, I learned the whole "cutting off the bit that might have touched gluten" thing the hard way. Its not worth it.

Interesting. I ate there last Sunday, and had the Godiva Cheesecake. What the waiter told me was that it was gluten-free, but manufactured in a facility that also produces wheat containing products. (Like I believe the waiter over the company, but I gave him a big tip for going to check for me. :rolleyes: ) I ate it anyway - I know I shouldn't have, but I did. I got a gut ache, but fooled myself into thinking it was because of too much sugar.

Guess I won't be eating that again!

UPDATE: Began BHRT 9/22/10 and it made a world of difference, for about 2 weeks. Hair loss stopped almost completely, energy levels way up and felt 19 again! Going back for a booster this week....

Ditto on that one. It's one of those things that seems like a good idea at the time but you soon learn it wasn't so good after all. :huh:

A mild case of celiac disease is what you have when your GI doc doesn't want to admit that your 'crazy ideas' of what's wrong are actually RIGHT! ;) Maybe I'll outgrow it. :rolleyes:
