Is There A List Anywhere?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm new here. Is there a master list anywhere in this website that gives you what is gluten-free and from what companies...this is alot tougher than I thought. I wanted to have dinner tonight and I ended up having salad with italian dressing, brocolli spears and a baked potato...I was really nervous, it seems everything in my kitchen has gluten in it....I'm dying for a potato chip! Hey any good chips that are gluten-free?

Chips are easy... Lay's Clasic. Nothing better!

If you really have a lot of packaged food with gluten in it, get rid of it. Unopened pkgs will be welcome at a church food pantry or a shelter.

Comprehensive lists are not all that useful because ingredients change. Learn the basics of what you can and can't eat (names that wheat rye & barley hide under) and read, read, read all labels.

The meal you mentioned sounds good to me. Want meat? Grill a chicken breast... or fry it crusted with rice flour.... or barbeque it with a gluten-free sauce... or poach it in white wine. There are no limits to the great food you can have. Just trot out your imagination.

I don't mean to go on and on, but I read so many posts about what we can't eat and how unhappy some of us are. Let me assure you, there is life after Celiac! I eat like a queen and you can too.

I notice that some stuff is labeled Gluten Free...others are not. I look for wheat, rye, oats and barley...however, what are the hidden names your referring too?

Try this link below. Once you click there will be several green headings you can choose from. One is a "safe" list and another is an "unsafe" list for gluten-free food ingredients. Hope that helps. B)

Thanks everyone..you guys are so helpful! I will check out each and everyone of these websites! I just got done printing a list from general mills and spoke to some companies on the phone today, like Hunts (speg sauce and canned tomatoes...gluten-free Free) and Danan (not)...they even are sending me coupons!

I know this is a dumb question but I want to make sure I'm right. Meat, chicken, cheese, vegies and fruit are gluten-free....are all frozen vegies gluten-free free...and I'm talking about the plain ones (with no sauce) Like a bag of shoprite frozen peas.

Also, anyone know what I can use inplace of bread crumbs in meatballs. I have cornmeal...what do you guys think.
