  1. Is Gatorade Safe For Celiacs?

    I only drink Gatorade, no Powerade. There are certain flavors of powerade that are not safe, and therefore I just stick to gatorade to be safe. I have had no problems with gatorade, and i am super sensitive.
  2. Manufactures Ingredients: Sugar, Egg White Solids, Distilled Vinegar, Sodium Benzoate (preservative), FD&C Blue #1, FD&C Red #3, Natural Mint Flavor, FD&C Yellow #6, FD&C Yellow #5, & FD&C Red #40 I found this!!! I would probably just need to check because of the distilled vinegar, right?
  3. Are the hard sugar cadies that you decorate cakes with (I really would like to get some hello kitty shaped ones), gluten free? What are they made out of? Does anyone know? And what are they called exactly? I tried searching for things online, but as soon as "hard candy" is in the search, its useless. My birthday is this weekend and I am making my cake and getting gluten free frosting, so I don't want to mess it up with some silly candies being glutened! But I think it would be really cute if I could use them.
  4. BLUE buffalo brand is gluten free. I work at PETCO and one of the Blue Representatives told me that I could eat thier dog food if I had too- lol... plus it's human grade ingriedients-- no fillers or by-products. Very high quality.
  5. Digestive Enzymes?

    I used enzymedica's digest pills. I get them at Whole Foods.
  6. I use Maxwell House Instant coffee at home. I have never had a problem with it, except occasionally drinking it on an empty stomach will upset it. You could e-mail them to confirm the "gluten-free" status, but I'm almost positive it is. I'm very sensitive. As for the gluten free shopping list, I wouldn't belive any list completely. Always double check items on lists. It's a great place to start, and for reference. All household items-- well, actually, anything at all it seems can have gluten in it. Yes, dishsoaps and detergents and cleaners can have gluten in them. I just found out that my Polmolive is not gluten-free. It is a never ending struggle. The only way to be sure is to call companies and e-mail, and to do it frequently in case they change their formulas.

  8. Gluten In Hair Products

    I am also a hairdresser in the same position. I've been using Redken color and I think it has wheat protein in it.. I e-mailed Redken and Matrix and neither one would give me a list. Their responces are on here under Cosmetic / Household Product Company Responces thread I started. I'm not sure what I am going to do yet. I love my profession and want to continue it until my hands do not work anymore lol.

  13. Thanksgiving Troubles...

    I feel the same way with my family... everyone besides my mom and one of my brothers think it is ok to say something is safe for me, and everything will be ok. No, I will not announce that I have just been in the bathroom for a very unpleasant reaction. And like someone else said on here, it
  14. I understood.. It was just comical and a bit of an oxymoron.
