  1. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Hi, I am Toby, from Northern B.C. new here, just registered today. Diagnosed as celiac as a small child. Re-diagnosed as celiac by biopsy in 1992, after three years of misdiagnosis by several doctors. In 1992 there were few choices available ( up here anyway ) for gluten free foods in the stores. Today, the selection and availability is nothing short of awesome. gluten-free beer, pizza, pasta, breads and mixes, life is good! One thing I have found that has not changed over the years is that most 'normal' people do not know what gluten is or whre it is present, and unfortunately this includes most people who work in restaurants. It has become second nature to decide what foods and ingredients are safe (not always right though!) but the issue of cross contamination is the most difficult thing we have to deal with. Bye for now.
