  1. I saw that same claim on the mex-grocery site and wrote to them to complain. I bought the same product at a local store and the ingredients included wheat starch (a definite gluten offender) and caramel color (a possible gluten offender). However, now I am starting to wonder if La Costena recently changed their recipe. Because on Amazon, the ingredients are listed as: Chipotle Peppers, Vinegar, Tomatoes, Onions, Sugar, Iodized Salt, Paprika, Soybean Oil and Spices.
  2. While I agree we should proceed with caution regarding parasitic treatments for celiac disease, the argument put forth below is incorrect. Even if it were true that celiac disease is caused by genes (this is probably only a small part of its cause), it would not follow that treatment required altering one's genes. There are genetic contributions to asthma, but we don;t treat that with gene-therapy. I think we should be open-minded about hookworms' (and other parasites') potential to treat autoimmune disorders. Sure, it's gross to think about having worms in your intestines, but the side effects (e.g., anemia) are manageable and probably less severe than steroid treatments. For me, I'd rather have worms and be able to eat bagels than to remain gluten-free for the rest of my life. Let's encourage further scientific study...
  3. Hi all, It's been a few years since these posts about Denny's. They now do have a list of allergens on their website, though it was very difficult to find. So here is the direct link to it (as of 12/23/2009): http://www.dennys.com/LiveImages/enProductImage_691.PDF I'm gonna try eating there today on my way to Northern Cali...wish me luck. Best, Liz
