  1. Which of these in the celiac panel determines your gluten level?
  2. I looked on Wishbone's website b/c I had the same question and it states: "Common ingredients that may contain gluten are rye, wheat, oats and barley, and noodles and pasta prepared with any of the previously mentioned grains. HVP, TVP, flavorings, are likely to contribute gluten as well, however, if they contain any gluten, the source would always be listed in the ingredient statements. Since product formulations change from time to time, we do not have a printed list of products that identifies those products that contain specific allergens or gluten. The best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label. Ingredient allergens as defined by FDA: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, seafood, wheat, eggs, and milk or dairy, as well as any ingredient that may contain gluten are always listed on the label. If gluten is present, it is clearly listed in plain language on the ingredient label (i.e., wheat flour, rye, barley, oats, and malt). Malt is a barley based ingredient. We do not publish a list of gluten-free flavors. Therefore, we suggest reading all ingredient labels carefully. As always, if you cannot determine whether the product contains the ingredient in question, we recommend that you don't use it."
  3. Gluten Free Sake

  4. Gluten Free Sake

    I discovered a Gluten Free Sake that is amazing. The name of the company is TY.KU - They make 4 different types of sake, all gluten free, contain no sulfites or tannens. They also make a citrus liquor and a soju (these are not gluten free). All their liquors contain no sugar; they all are made with real fruit juices and have half the calories of other liquors. All their sakes are top notch and should be served chilled. 76% of sake, specifically sake served hotis considered Futsu (very low grade).
  5. Can someone please tell me if Nathan's frozen potato pancakes and frozen french fries are gluten free? I read somewhere that they were but had the potato pancakes yesterday and I'm feeling really sick. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
  6. Hello Everyone, I recently have been on the hunt for gluten free sake. I'm aware that sake is made from rice, however many often add barley at the end of the fermintation process to add flavor. I came across this site, which states which sakes have been found to be gluten free (I know they exist) http://canweeatthat.typepad.com/blog/2011/04/gluten-free-sake.html - When searching "Gekkeikan Sake" so many came up on this site and they all look like they are made from different companies http://www.shopwiki.com/l/Gekkeikan-Sake?sb=1 The person who posted the information about the gluten free sake also said that any sakes that say Junmai are gluten free because they are "pure with no additional ingredients added". Is this true for all of them????? Help! I would appreciate some insight on the matter and if anyone has a specific name or website I would appreciate it if you could message it to me. Thanks!
  7. Is all champagne gluten free? I hear mixed things. Any info/experience with champagne are much appreciated. Happy New Year Celiacs
  8. Help With Sauces & Gravies

    Not sure where you live but Whole Foods sells Gluten Free Gravy Mix.
  9. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet

    Thanks for your response Reba... did you lose weight on Atkins... yes it's similar to Paleo diet, but a little different.
  10. Arborio Rice

    Thanks for your response Marilyn ... Yes I could go for some risotto and melon wrapped prosciutto too!
  11. Is all arborio rice gluten free if in it's natural form? Also is all prosciuTto gluten free? I've heard it is.
  12. ugh mookie it sucks... I'm newly diagnosed and it's tough. I still dont have thing under control. This is a great site with lots of helpful people. Don't give up..we all are here to help each other. Chin up
  13. Celiac And Gastritis

    You should look into going on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Before being diagnosed with Celiac I was told I had gastritis after going to the emergency room for abdominal pain. I was on prednisone for severe uticaria (hives) and swelling. Prednisone has a lot of side effects and isn't a good medication to be on for an extended period of time. I hated how I felt on prednisone. I'm thankful I'm off and hope I dont need to go back on it. I gained 30 pounds on prednisone and was swollen with fluid retention. Try to stay active and drink lots of water to prevent fluid retention.
  14. I recently heard a fellow Celiac mention that he suffers from Candida... I've seen this on a lot of celiac sites, but was uncertain what it was. After reading the symptoms and taking the written test I'm thinking that I could possibly suffer from that as well. That would explain my weight gain and cravings. I don's suffer from the yeast infections... more the neurological and mood aspects of it. Anyone have thoughts, experiences or diagnosis tips? Is there a blood test you can take to confirm or rule out diagnosis? I'm going to be starting the Specific Carbohydrate Diet October 17th ... if in fact I do suffer from this as well... it should take care of it for me. Also, after doing further reading on Candida many have reported that a Colonic was very helpful and beneficial when suffering from Candida and Celiac. I'm a little reluctant and uneasy about a colonic. Has anyone done it and do they think that it would be helpful for me? I'm interested in your thoughts on any of these topics. A lot of these symptoms myic Celiac and go hand in hand from what I'm told. http://www.candida-yeast-explained.com/candida-symptoms.html I know that the Celiac is not a false diagnosis... I've have numerous bloodwork and a biopsy/endoscopy.
  15. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet

    I recently heard about GAPS diet. From what I'm told it's a more advanced SCD that people do afer they were on SCD. I've also heard conflicting things about the "cured" .. some have said that after being on SCD 1-2 years if they have shown positive results within the first month or so that they have been healed and able to eat whatever they wanted after. Who knows... I guess it's safe to say that everyone is different. I'm hopeful my life will improve once on the diet. I shall keep you posted. Thanks for your responses.
