  1. Thanks all. Found specifics of what I was looking for at a university of chicago celiac program web site http://celiacdisease.net/
  2. First, my apologies for not doing a thorough search on this section of the forum, but I didn't find an answer with a quick scan. Hope this is the right forum. I've been diagnosed for almost 7 years. It was done via upper endoscopy w/ biopsy and a couple of blood tests (don't remember what they were). I've adhered to the gluten-free diet as best I could and never intentionally cheated. Lately I've been having abdominal/GI issues and wondering if I'm being secretly Gluten'ed. There's been no follow-up testing done in all of that time and was wondering if some testing now might at least reveal if I was getting gluten somewhere and perhaps be the cause of current issues, but I'm unsure of the right tests to ask my doc about. Suggestions or links to proper post DX follow-up care? Thanks in advance.
  3. Someone I know came back from a trip outside of the US with a bottle of pure vanilla. I know there's alcohol in it (I could understand that much of the label whihc is not in English). Any concerns with this pure vanilla?

  5. They have a glutten-free list you can ask for. As with anything be sure to check labels. The Trader Joes by me seems kind of small and doesn't always have everything on the list or it doesn't stay in their stocking inventory. Edit To Add: Products are spread across the store, but many have a gluten-free label on the shelf.
  6. Thanks. Can't believe I missed that when I did a search....must have had an off day
  7. The recent Halloween candy posts have brought back a candy urge I haven't had in a while (Well, at least a couple of days anyway ). I've gotten this hankering for some candy orange slices. Not an assortment, just the orange ones. A couple of bags I checked out in the store were at least clearly labelled with wheat, but I still have the urge. Can anyone suggest a brand? Thanks
  8. Would you please post the URL where you found the list? Thanks
  9. Mcdonalds

    Brizzo, Would you provide the URL that came from? I looked on the McD site but didn't see it. Thanks
  10. I just called about Campbells, Ready To Serve, Low Sodium, Chicken Broth Soup. Ingredients: Chicken Broth, Chicken Fat, Dextrose, Yeast Extract, Flavoring. They offered to mail me the gluten-free list and couldn't tell me what was the gluten, but should use the list, not the label although they couldnt tell me how recent the list was either.
  11. I know Campbells only has ~2 gluten-free soups on their official list , but while reading labels in the soup aisle recently, I noticed Campbells, Ready To Serve, Low Sodium, Chicken Broth Soup. Ingredients: Chicken Broth, Chicken Fat, Dextrose, Yeast Extract, Flavoring. So I called to find out if gluten-free and the person only had the 2 soup list to refer to although they did tell me about Swansons, also a Campbell product. They guessed maybe the Dextrose, but didn't know nor had any resources to have it checked. I found this a bit strange since other Campbell soups seem pretty good about explicitly listing wheat. Does anything jump out as gluten laden in the ingredient list above? Thanks
  12. For frozen breads, I like EnjoyForLife, Kinnikinnick(sp), and Whole Foods gluten-free BakeShop. Can purchase at WildOats, WholeFoods, or Fruitful Yield (Health store chain). Around here there's a couple of BreadSmith bakeries that make gluten-free bread 1 or 2 times a month.
  13. Here's a vote for Kinnikinnick
  14. My vote for best tasting gluten-free cracker is Schar. And from a previous cracker thread http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=24058
  15. I think the tomato with croutons is new. Geesh, I hope it isn't a replacement for the tomato soup. I checked with the company once and have seen it on a list or two some time ago. Kept a watch on ingredients and haven't seen anything that concerned me much since. Always a fear they would change their formula some day or drop the flavor like they did with their gluten-free chicken broth cup-o-soup a few years ago. Other than Ogran anyone know of any other cup-of-soup brands?
