  1. I have had a horrible time trying to find gluten-free face wash in Canada over the past few years... it either doesn't work for my skin or the company fails to respond to my emails. I am looking for a cleanser that is good for dry, sensitive skin and fights aging. Please help!
  2. For up-to-date information on Victoria, you can always check www.victoriaceliac.org There are lists of restaurants and grocery stores that have gluten-free food. As for the Olive Grove, I have found them to be very accomodating. They even give you gluten-free rice crackers and hummus instead of bread to start.
  3. Hi guys, Anyone in Canada know of a gluten free sunscreen? Thanks in advance
  4. Email from Stride July 23, 2008: Thank you for your inquiry concerning the presence of allergens in products produced by our company. We are a food company committed to very high standards and we have a clearly defined policy of complying with food regulations. Additionally, we work closely with legislative authorities and other interested parties at all points along the food supply chain to ensure that safe and wholesome foods are provided to our consumers. We have implemented an internal food allergen management policy, pursuant to which we have undertaken the labeling of any known allergens in the following categories: cereals (containing gluten and products of these including wheat, rye, barley, triticale, spelt, kamut, and oats, but not corn, rice, sorghum, or buckwheat), crustacea (including shrimp, prawns, crab, lobster, and crayfish), mollusks (including oysters, clams, scallops, and mussels), eggs, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk, tree nuts, sesame seeds, and sulfites (greater than 10 mg/kg). Accordingly, we continuously assess our products and update supplier information in order to make new or existing labels accurately reflect the presence of the listed allergens. If a product contains any of the top allergens, it will be on the ingredients list. We appreciate your inquiry and welcome any additional questions you may have regarding any of our products. Sincerely, Consumer Relations .......so it will be on the label
  5. http://www.victoriaceliac.org/ Under events and local info, there is a large list of restaurants. Be sure to visit the conference too!
  6. I have decided to record all my gluten free travel finds in a blog that I have listed in my profile. All of the information I compiled about being gluten-free in Shanghai is there. I hope it helps!
  7. Hi everyone, I just wanted to share some information I've found out. I've had all the vaccinations now before my trip in December and wanted to tell everyone they were all gluten free. This includes: MMR Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis Typhoid fever Influenza Menactra (Meningitis) Dukoral (oral vaccination for traveller's diarrhea/cholera) Malarone (Malaria drug from Glaxosmithkline) I confirmed the last two by phone directly to the companies (note that I'm in Canada)
  8. I know there are a few topics on China around here, but I was hoping there might be some new information. I'll be in Shanghai for a month this December and would appreciate it if anyone could tell me about specific restaurants that were good or any other tips. I already know about La Rose Noire, but that's about it. http://www.la-rose-noire.com/site_pages/sa...ic_healthy.html Thanks in advance
  9. Does anyone know if the alcoholic drink Alize is gluten free? Thanks
  10. Japan

    I would like to do a work term in Japan for my degree...so I would have to stay there for 8 months. Has anyone here been to Japan and had a good gluten-free experience? Thanks
  11. Hi, I was in Vegas for 6 days in August and had a great gluten free experience. People should not be discouraged from going, I had the most options there than any other places I have ever been to. I stayed at the Venetian and ate only in the restaurants there. I should add that they were pricey, but even breakfast at the Grand Luxe Cafe I had no problem (which is not expensive). When ordering, I make sure I am the last to order so I'm fresh on the waiters mind as they head to the kitchen. I ask them if they know what gluten is. If not, I explain and mention cross contamination. I don't usually order steak because of marinades. There was the largest selection of gluten-free desserts I have ever seen and they were fabulous. I would especially recommend the restaurant Aqua.
  12. I believe that someone mentioned Infusium hair products and I just wanted to add that I contacted the company by phone a few months ago to discover that they cannot guarantee their products are gluten-free. It could be hidden under 'fragrance'. gluten-free products I use: Dove Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash Lancome Juicy Tubes, Star Gloss, black eyeliner, Definicils mascara Chapstick Tom's of Maine deodorant
  13. Yep, the Smirnoff Twists are gluten-free, my drink of choice! The strawberry is my favorite. My question is about liqueurs....are all of them okay? I don't really know much about their ingredients. Thanks
  14. I couldn't really find out for sure when I tried. I think I ended up on a UK website that said they contained a small amount of gluten so I have avoided them, but who knows about North America. I use Fisherman's Friend, all of their flavours are gluten-free.
