  1. The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it. Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo. A toaster with crumbs.
  2. Do you have a dental school anywhere close? Even a couple of hour drive might be worth looking into. See if you can talk to one of the clinical supervisors/dentists. This would be a case they would like. Or just show up to an Emergency room at a big hospital - if its serious, they can't turn you away. Because that is what will happen eventually. Edit - Call up Texas A & M school of dentistry and get your butt up to Dallas!
  3. I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff. And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family. But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to have outside food in. From what I have seen, this family didn't handle the whole situation well. If they had brought a small discrete lunch in, waited until the others had their food, then pull it out and not made a big fuss, they probably would have been fine. I have also been told that this tavern does do a safe gluten-free meal....
  4. As for the ADA - that doesn't mean we have the "right" to eat out for fun. It has provisions for what is reasonable for the business. I think it applies better to circumstances where you have no choice but to eat the food - like a college dorm.
  5. I don't think we have heard the whole story. I have heard from several people that have been to that tavern and were able to eat gluten-free.
  6. Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
  7. And we have come a long way in the 4 years since this was written!
  8. I would be willing to bet that nothing changed in that product except the label. A bunch of companies seemed to have decided that they need to put "May contains allergens " on the everything to be safe. But I wouldn't buy it any longer.
  9. When you called the doctor and told him this - what was the response?
  10. Perhaps you could find a university that has degrees in food science and ask them these questions?
  11. Those are questions for a tax accountant. Really, you can deduct anything you like.... its just if they decide to audit you.
  12. Why not? These functions are not just about the food or the beer. You might be surprised to find they will be able to get you gluten-free food at a company party. Go to the BBQ and bring your own food or a dish to share that you can make into a meal or eat first. Microbreweries usually have wine or at least a coke. If you live in a bigger city or on one of the coasts or Colorado - there seems to be a good understanding of gluten free. I am finding that here in the midwest, more and more places and people understand gluten-free and Celiac
  13. Its not listed. Do we have a statement from Pepsi. Malt "flavor" may just be a flavoring - not actually barley
  14. I saw in several places a picture of the ingredients on the can/box. But we should always read the ingredients, just in case they have changed and the site isn't updated.
