  1. Is Kellogg's still making gluten-free Rice Krispies? I haven't seen them in any stores in my area (Boise, Idaho) recently. And I checking their website but don't even see it listed as a product. Darn. Not that I loved them as cereal, but I did like using them in Rice Krispie Treats! Thanks.
  2. WHERE OH WHERE do I find Pillsbury gluten-free doughs?! I live in Idaho! This is great news to my ears. Thank you!
  3. Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with Celiac 14 months ago and have been gluten-free ever since. I never had any lesions or rashes when I was eating gluten or the 13.5 months after stopping. However, this past week I got two patches of somewhat itchy, very painful patches of a blistery rash on my upper thigh and a hip. The areas almost seemed bruised, purple-ish and sore underneath with bright red blisters on top. I'm wondering if it could be the DH I have heard about?! If so, does it mean I got in to some gluten? (I try to be very compliant in my diet, but I am not super sensitive - stomach issues wise - to when I do get some gluten accidentally.) Or in reading here, seems it may be connected to iodine? I am confused. Once you get it, does it come back easily? And always in the same spots? If I do get it again, is there anything I could/should do to clear it up? I don't really have a medical professional treating me for the Celiac, so I find this website my best source of information. Any suggestions/ideas/information is much appreciated!
  4. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac. I wasn't having the usual symptoms (no stomach issues) but it was really tough on my blood sugars (Type I diabetic). I am doing well but confused about one area . . . Oats. Are they safe or aren't they? Obviously gluten-free oats are fine, but what about main stream oats? For example, Nature Valley granola bars ingredients are: whole grain oats, sugar, canola oil, yellow corn flour, honey, soy flour, brown sugar syrup, salt, soy lecithin, baking soda and natural flavors. None of those ingredients seem to be an issue - other than maybe the oats. I also love cereal and found the only "potential" bad ingredient in Cap'n Crunch cereal to be "oat flour". I was told this is the best resource for questions like this. So I am asking you, the experts . . . Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
