Hi! In 85..wow. How old are you now?

I remember a gluten free grocery store in Victoria between London drugs and Market on Yates? Is it still there?

Hi, thanks! That sounds really nice but, I probably won't make it up there though. I hope you have a good time!

Hi Patrick, in 69 years have you found you have a problem with other grains as well as gluten grains?

:D:)

Not really have not experimented with exotic grains,grains from Asia are questionable.

I practise zero tolerance best I can,but get flare-ups with foods in restaurants the odd time.

Reading labels is a challenge as to ingredients as well.

I stick to brown rice flour mostly.

Some countries like Australia consider 20ppm ok as safe for celiacs,however one of the flour millers I spoke to in Ontario recently strive for 5ppm.

As you know reactions are very diferentwith some celiacs.

I lived in Vancouver for 17 years, sister went to UVic and I went to the Island and various Islands a lot. I really miss it.

Look up Planet Organic. Great place. They have a celiac tour every month from the president of the Vancouver Island Celiac Association. It is an awesome place to shop, very helpful staff.

I'm from the Comox valley. I seem to meet Celiacs everywhere now that I am diagnosed. It would be cool if there were enough of us to organize some kind of gluten-free meet up. :)
