  1. Tried your recipe today and it's great! Thank you! Now I'd like to experiment a bit with the next one. I see you've suggested adding a sweetener such as maple. Is that maple syrup or some other form of maple sweetener?
  2. Thanks for this. Looking forward to trying them out.
  3. I don't think they're labelled gluten-free here in Canada but I trust they are. I'm sure my daughter (she has Celiac and hence we are all gluten-free in the family) will love them.
  4. I did email Nestle re their Haagen Dazs ice creams and I'm pretty happy with their response: "Thank you for inquiring about our gluten-free products. We always want to hear from our consumers and appreciate the opportunity to respond to your inquiry.To help our consumers make informed choices, major allergens including ingredients containing gluten are labeled on foods even when present in small quantities. Gluten is a type of protein found in cereal plants like wheat, barley, rye, triticale and oats. In case of gluten intolerance, before buying a food product, we recommend to always check the ingredients list. If gluten is added to a food it will be listed in the ingredient label as “gluten”, “hydrolyzed wheat gluten”, “wheat protein”, or “wheat protein isolate”.At this time, I do not have a complete listing of all our gluten-free products; however, if you are interested in finding out more about the gluten content of a particular product, please call our toll-free number, 1-800-387-4636, one of our Consumer Care Specialists will be happy to assist you.Thank you for choosing Nestlé,"
  5. Wow, had no idea Haagen Dazs had gluten free options anywhere. I hope the same is the case here in Canada.
  6. Mc Donald's soft serve ice cream is also safe, correct?
  7. There are quite a few to choose from that we like but the one we like best right now.. Loaf: Northern Bakehouse All other types of bread: Delicious Without Gluten<--- this is a recent discovery for us and wow, is it great. Both are Canadian Celiac Association certified
  8. Are all soy ingredients similar when it comes to allergies? In other words, if you are allergic to soy, would you react to all types of soy?..ex)soy lecithin, defatted soy flour, etc? I'm asking because my daughter doesn't react to those 2 types of soy(defatted soy flour is found in kinnikinnik's gluten-free pancake mix and soy lecithin in other types of gluten-free food), so would it be safe to have her try foods that have other forms of soy? ex) soy protein. Excuse me if these questions seem silly or have obvious answers but I'm still somewhat new to what to look out for and learning every day!
  9. It's the ingredient list to the same one we'd like to order from. The only issue right now is 'Hydrolyzed Soy Protein'..but i understand that if it was created using wheat, it would have to state that. Not 100% sure though. I will definitely take a look at Find me Gluten Free. Thanks for that.
  10. Would the same apply to Hydrolyzed Soy Protein?
  11. I used to go there (pre daughter's diagnosis) and we'd like to try it out again now that we know what to look out for..we're thinking about ordering food for takeout for about 10 people or so,as long as it meets our special diet criteria. He'd treat it like a special order in that they'd use fresh new utensils, have the grill cleaned beforehand and avoid cross contamination as best as possible. He also knows we will not be including any pita/bread with the order. I sat down with him for about 20 minutes and he showed me each ingredient container they use. and i just realized i misspelled souvlaki in original post
  12. Hi everyone. I'm planning to go to a Greek restaurant in the area (Toronto) and I actually went in to one today to check out all their ingredients today. The manager was kind enough to show me everything they use to make their chicken slouvaki, roast potatoes and rice. Besides Canola oil (with dimethylpolysiloxane), Heinz tomato juice (to flavour their potatoes)-both of which I assume are safe, they also use chicken broth on both their roast potatoes and rice. Heinz mustard is used for the chicken and that also I assume is safe. Here is a pic of the ingredients of the chicken broth. I've done the best I can to check on each ingredient but I want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything of concern. Any info/help regarding this is very much appreciated. Does anything here look iffy/questionable? Thank you!
  13. Thank you for this. My daughter is still a few years away from receiving her first Communion so I will definitely speak to my priest about this sort of accommodation.
  14. yes, thank you. Hopefully it's accurate. People are also sharing the fact that drinking the wine is also accepted.
