  1. Sometimes "shared facilites" means separate buildings on the same corporate campus or separated parts of buildings. I really worry more about "shared machinery" than facilities. And even if they use shared machinery, if it tests at <20 ppm, they may call it gluten-free in the US.
  2. Legally they have to say "gluten removed:" not gluten free. Its the restraunts that call it gluten-free
  3. If you were gluten-free for so long, a couple of little bits of gluten might not be enough to elevated the antibodies that make it to the blood. Because of this, your negative Celiac testing means nothing. also, from my understanding, negative is not 0 for a reason. It may be that all people have a small amount of these antibodies naturally. It may be that the test has limits on what's it can do and will record something for everyone.
  4. Ask the place ahead of time. Maybe go by and sope it out. What would contaminate the tea? What else do they make? Where do they make the other stuff?
  5. Yes, that is a good deal. HAve you tried Kind bars? They are nuts and other things. Some are like a yummy candy bar. Sometimes you can find Luna bars in a box of 6 and they will be less than $1 a bar. I think I have gotten them at Target that way.
  6. I find rice flour to be gritty, usually no fiber, and not very flavorful. I prefer blends with things like sorghum and millet. I am not sure there are any on the market, I just make my own
  7. It does seem odd. Because the only vinegar that has gluten is malt vinegar. Also, last I heard, there is no way to test and get "0". The tests are usually <5 - which is safe for Celiacs.
  8. I have had both and they are fine. I don't LOVE them - but they are gluten-free
  9. I have eaten at several different Outbacks with no issues.
  10. A medical doctor won't care about alternative and unproven testing. I hope he remembered to tell you that you need to be eating gluten for an extended period before any medical Celiac testing.
  11. Stool tests are not considered a valid way to diagnoses Celiac disease at this time. ...Harvard, UCSD, and the American College of Gastroenterology all agree that stool tests are simply not sensitive or specific enough methods in screening for celiac disease. We can say therefore with confidence that the test currently being used by these labs is not good enough. ... http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ "There are no tests to diagnose non-celiac gluten sensitivity at this time. Which means, no research has been through a scientific, evidence-based, peer-reviewed study that proves what some labs claim as a way to detect non-celiac gluten sensitivity. " http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-i-be-screened-for-gluten-sensitivity/
  12. Angry Orhard has different "flavors". Some are really sweet and some are more "dry". I prefer the less sweet, especially with food
  13. You don't eat meat? Cause cider, Hard or regular, is great on pork. Hard cider might give an interesting flavor to cooked apples. Especially like a blueberry apple? Cranberry Apple?
  14. I think it's a lot of sugar? A lot of apple juice? If I drank 24 oz of apple juice........ so I try not to drink too many and tend towards the less sweet ones. A fun new drink i ink I have been enjoying is Truely . Let me be back with a link. There is another brand that is the same idea. They are not as strong a flavor as a soda. http://www.trulyspikedsparkling.com/ http://whiteclaw.com/age-gate/
  15. There is no reason to stay away from gluten-free beers. It's the ones that say "gluten removed" that may have gluten issues. In then US, gluten removed beers are not allowed to call themselves gluten-free.
