Milk, eggs, MSG, rice and potatoes are all gluten-free.

Celiac disease damages the villi, and as a result can cause temporary lactose intolerance until the villi have healed. The villi produce the enzyme lactase which is needed to digest lactose.

Pure oats are tolerated by many celiacs, but most commercially available oats are contaminated with wheat. Again, they are best avoided until the villi are fully healed. Then try them carefully.

Many celiacs have other intolerances as well. Some of us have to avoid dairy, but not all of us. I am fine with dairy.

Milk is fine unless you've developed an intolerance to dairy due to the damage done to the villi in your intestines.

Eggs are fine

MSG is fine, but like anything else, can be a problem for some.

Oats are a problem for many. Some people do fine with gluten free oats.

Rice is fine, just not the packaged rice mixes. I have issues with anything sugar related, so I stay away from rice most of the time.

Flour....no to white or wheat flour, durum, rye, semolina, or spelt....yes to rice flour, buckwheat, teff, amaranth.

I'm sure if I've missed something, someone else will chime in ;)

BTW....Peter what did you do that I couldn't repond earlier???.........I kept trying to post my response, and then find out you beat me to it! <_<

It wasn't me, although I had the same problem. I went back after my reply failed and copied the reply to the clipboard (Ctrl-A followed by Ctrl-C). Then discovered that another mod had moved the topic from coping to ingredients while I was replying. Went there and successfully posted. I think I know who did it; Darn210 was reading when I started my reply. <_<

Dairy and cheese are safe for many celiacs though if you have had many GI symptoms, you may need to give it time before they are okay for you. i was diagnosed in aug of 06 and in december i tried dairy again successfully...

if you have problems with dairy then you can narrow it down to a lactose issue or a casein issue.

oats are safe if they are certified gluten free, as previously stated, some can tolerate, some can't. i can and have no problems

MSG is one of those things that is gluten free but som people still have issues. i cant have any.. even a small packet of ranch dressing with MSG will have me sick for the rest of the day.... again, you may have to try and see for you.

eggs should be safe, if you get sick from them, its probably an egg allergy

rice and potatoes (as well as every other fresh vegetable and fruit) are completely safe. for packaged rice and potato dishes the ingredient list should always always always be checked.

wheat and related grain flours are unsafe. a few of the safew flours include: rice flours, potato flour, tapioca flour/starch, corn starch, corn meal, sorghum (tolerated by many celiacs), bean flours, millet flour, buckwheat (sounds misleading but it is not related to wheat).... there are many others.... im sure someone will add to this!

hope some of this helps

As far as potatoes go, they are gluten free but some of us have a problem with them. Like me, I have a problem with all nightshade vegetables, which are potatoes, tomatoes, all peppers from bell peppers, jalapenos, to black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, etc, eggplant and okra. I eat anything with these in the ingredients, My symptoms will range from pain all thru my body to diarreah within 10 minutes after eating.

MSG gives me heartburn, sweats, shakes, bloating and bad gas.

Aspartame will give me heavy fatigue, diarreah, and sharp stomach pain.

Sugar gives me fatigue, dizziness and heart papatations.
