  1. Thanks for the reply I will check these out. I did mention in my post I am looking for dinner and lunch ideas and recipes.
  2. Hi there I am looking for the names of some good gluten free/dairy free cookbooks. I want ones that are more geared towards dinner and lunch ideas and recipes. I have an almost three year old who is suspected Celiac, is getting much better since gluten free, but I am running out of ideas for meals especially because dairy really bothers him too. If anyone can give me the names of some good cookbooks I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Mya
  3. Can you tell me where you can buy this peanut butter. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the reply. I have a million questions. Can you please tell me if you have to be careful with plain rice? Is it often contaminated with gluten? Also for my little guy are there any fries that are safe. We tried the Ian's but he didn't like them. I called Mccain today and they have some that don't contain gluten but are cooked in the same areas where they process fries with gluten.....so if anyone can tell me any other types of fries that are safe would be much appreciated. Thank-you, Mya
  5. Hi I am so overwhelmed and I am not sure what products are ok. Can someone tall me which mixed nuts, almonds and peanut butters are ok in Canada. As well is anyone aware of an up to date product list for gluten free in Canada. Thanks
  6. Thanks for the reply. Could you also recommend a brand of peanut butter that is gluten free as well as nuts. Thanks, Mya
  7. oops I am in Canada not on Canada lol.
  8. Hi I am on Canada but wondering does bacon typically have gluten? What are the ingredients in bacon to watch for?
  9. Hi there can anyone tell me if bacon has gluten and if so what brands do not. Thanks
  10. Hi there I am very new at this and am wondering if there is an up to date gluten free product list. I found one on here from 2004, but I am sure things can change. It would be handy to print off a list to take to the grocery store. Are there certain brands that are better than others at not hiding gluten in products and displaying it on labels? Are there certain brands that I should stay away from even if it does not list gluten in the products? How do you know what companies are using the same equipment to produce foods with gluten as to produce foods that are not containing gluten? Any specific companies to avoid- even if they don't list gluten on the package but are cross-contaminating? Also can anyone recommend gluten free mixed nuts as well as almonds.We use presidents choice organic peanut butter, I am not sure if this is gluten free. Can anyone recommend a peanut butter? Is vh soya sauce ok? Also any recommendations for shampoo and bodywash. One last question what spice brand is gluten free? Ok I lied does anyone know if Montreal steak spice is ok? We are lucky to have Knickknick here in Edmonton but it would be nice and save some money to be able to shop at the grocery store as well and be confident I am choosing gluten free products for our son. Any suggestions are much appreciated. I feel quite overwhelmed and this forum is really great. I just want my two year old to feel better and I want to make sure I am making sure to eliminate all of the gluten from his diet. Thank-you, Mya
  11. Among other she is being tested for IgA, IgM, Igg(Quant) and ATTG-anti transglutimate IgA. Is it one of these tests that tests for gliadin? Thanks
  12. Yes that helps a lot. Thanks! Did you have Celiac symptoms? This test can be preformed by family doctor?
  13. Hi our son tested negative to the home test they sell here in Canada but now his poor little feet are cramping. Is this common in Celiac children? We are taking him for blood work through the doctor. I have heard from this forum test results in children are not that accurate so we will try him on gluten free either way. What causes foot cramping in Celiac?
  14. Hi there we are just waiting to do Celiac testing at the doctors but with symptom and family history we are going to go gluten free even if the test shows negative. With my sons symptoms we do not want to wait the almost one year to get food allergy testing done. We feel it would be best to go gluten free and try to uncover any other food allergies. Does anyone have any comments on which is the most accurate way to test for food allergies. I was reading on the Elisa test(blood test), there is also a naturopathic doctor that does IgG and IgE testing. Or is the skin prick test at the doctors considered the gold standard?
  15. Hi I want to have our son tested for other food allergies as well. Any opinions on which is the most reliable. I was considering the Elisa test (blood test). Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to test?
