  1. Anyone use Allergy Research Group's supplements? There are a few mentions of them in past threads, but my phone call to them yesterday about gluten-free status of their lactobacillus did not leave me feeling confident. I was told it is gluten-free, but when I probed further about manufacturing standards the woman I spoke with told me that product is actually manufactured by an entirely different company. Allergy Research Group buys it as a finished product and labels it. She is looking into where it comes from. In the meantime, any feedback here would be great.
  2. Barcelona

    Hi all, Does anyone who lives in or has been to Barcelona have specific restaurant recommendations? I've looked at the Catalan Celiac Association website, and identified some places I'll likely try, but would love to hear first-hand about restaurants you particularly liked. Thanks!
  3. Philly

    Where have you had success eating out in Philly (besides Sazon & Jules Thin Crust)?
  4. Hey all, Has anyone eaten in any of the Philadelphia restaurants that participate in NFCA's GREAT certification program? I am most interested in Distrito and Little Fish, but feedback about any of the restaurants would be wonderful.
  5. Cape Cod Chips consistently has some of the friendliest, most well-informed costumer service reps I've ever spoken to - they're always genuinely up on their allergen info! And, currently, all of there flavors are gluten-free. I eat the Robust Russet all the time without issue.
  6. Sushi In Philly

    Anyone know of a reliable sushi restaurant in Center City Philadelphia? Thanks all!
  7. Hi all, any one know if Symbicort is gluten-free? It isn't on the glutenfreedrugs.com list and I didn't have the chance to call Astra Zeneca today. Many thanks!
  8. Hey all, if you live in Mid-Coast Maine or are passing through this summer, stop by the adorable Wildflours Market & Bakery in Brunswick. It's been open since the fall, but I just discovered it today. They are 100% gluten-free, do breads and other baked goods, and stock lots of gluten-free groceries. On Mason St., just off of Maine Street: http://wildflours.com/ (the phone is 207-725-7973 - not 729, as listed on their site)
  9. What kind of ice cream do you eat? Anyone know of a brand made in an entirely gluten-free facility?
  10. Charleston/kiawah Island, Sc

    Do you know if Publix and/or Piggly Wiggly sell gluten-free brands?
  11. New Gluten-free Options At Phila. Phillies Games

    Amazing news! Thanks for posting this. In similar news, CeliacChicks reported that gluten-free food/drink is coming to the Arizona Diamondbacks' Chase Field: http://www.celiacchicks.com/2009/03/gluten...hase-field.html Can you say, gluten-free ballpark tour?
  12. Hey all, I'm traveling to Kiawah Island in late April and am wondering if there are any reliable restaurants on the island or in Charleston? Also, how are the grocery stores down there? Piggly Wiggly is the major one, right?
  13. What's the harm in telling your friends straight up that you really don't like your dietary habits being the brunt of the joke at meals? Tell them they can tease you about your haircut or your taste in music or whatever, just not your new diet because it's a sensitive issue.
  14. Paris, France

    Gluten-free eating in Paris is a bit more difficult than elsewhere in Europe, but it's certainly doable. La Grande Epicerie de Paris, the Bon Marche department store's food hall, is a great place to put together a picnic meal. It's in the 6th arrondissement, near the S
  15. Age Of Diagnosis?

    I was 20, had mild symptoms starting at 17 that got much worse around 19/20. It took a whole summer worth of visiting different doctors to finally crack it, and, out of frustration, having done some internet research myself through the Merck Manual, I was actually the one who first suggested Celiac.
