  1. I've also asked "ignorant" people that same question. Their reaction is quite funny ... however, from a qualified chef/cook to ask what is gluten is really pathetic.
  2. Hi Sue ... so glad to meet you! Free State quite a distance from Western Cape. You are more than welcolm to email me vanessa.mckibbin@kuehne-nagel.com. Hope to hear from you soon
  3. Hi Wenmin, Thanks I really do enjoy this site. Have you seen the Rate of Exchange? I'd have to win the Lottery but it is an idea because surely there are quite a few people in SA, that I could "supply" .. it's something to look at. Here is SA .. if you had to go to a resturant and request a Gluten Free meal, 9/10 chefs would ask "what is gluten" ... serious ... LOL And talking about .. what is Gluten ... I have just printed out and explanation to take home and show my hubby and he is very well read .. if you know what I mean. All I can say is this is a manageable desease and not a terminal illness ... so we will survive! V
  4. Hello all, My daughter is 19 years old, its taken 2 years for the doctors here in SA to even mention the disease. And that is after paying and arm and a leg for doctors. blood tests and specialists. I had never heard of Celiac and work with +-70 people of which 1 person knew of Celiac. For the first time in a long time I realized that we are far from a first world country. Gluten free products are VERY expensive and that's after you can locate them (mostly in health shops) Are there any people who belong to this forum in South Africa? I could do with some advise and willing to share all i have discovered. My heart bleeds for my daughter and because of this I understand how all of you feel and I empathize.
