  1. Hi there: The list below says that the Crayola modelling products are gluten free. They do not have added gluten but they do have cross-contamination issues. This was confirmed to me by a representative on the telephone and here is what their own website says.... Answer The exact ingredients of our products are proprietary, however, we are happy to provide you with the 7 most common ingredient requests NOT FOUND in products currently manufactured by Crayola--This does not include products manufactured under license. Please check packaging carefully to determine manufacturing company. Peanuts Shellfish Fish Tree Nuts Eggs Milk Latex (Latex gloves are one of the personal protection options requested by and available to our employees for the occasional handling of raw materials and finished goods during the product manufacturing process.) We are often asked if any of our products contain gluten (wheat flour). Gluten is contained only in Crayola Dough. Other Crayola modeling materials, including Model Magic modeling compound, Modeling Clay, Air-Dry Clay, and Model Magic Fusion are gluten free. All of these products, however, are produced on the same machinery. Although the machines are cleaned prior to the start of each production run, there is a slight possibility that trace amounts of gluten from Crayola Dough may be present in the other modeling compound products. For information regarding specific ingredients not listed, please call us at 1-800-272-9652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time.
  2. What do you do generally at Mexican restaurants - do you avoid the corn chips in case they've been handled?
  3. I love chipotle and it is usually fine for me. Last week however, not. Had some and could tell almost immediately that something was wrong. Guess I got some cross-contaminated. Do folk usually ask them to change gloves then??
  4. Hi all: I had suspected I had Celiac for sometime. First test was negative. Second, after pneumonia, 6 miscarriages and 2 years of intolerable stomach upsets was very positive. Although I think, as many of you have said that I had it for years. For the last two years particularly I felt like it was 4 o clock in the morning at all times because I was so tired. Partially iron no doubt. My question is --- learning to stay gluten free is incredibly difficult. After six months and one fall off the wagon (because I didn't realize that many chinese restaurants use wheat flour to thicken their sauce) I am feeling pretty good again. My question is, how quickly after taking a trace of gluten - eg in cross-contaminated food do you realize you have done so? And, how quickly do the symptoms like fatique and stomach problems come back. While gluten free I am one of the very lucky people who seems to be 100% ok but I am finding that I am suddenly feeling very tired - like today - and last night I ate out at a Mexican restaurant - carefully informed the chef but not sure it worked this time! Am I just tired or can Celiac come on so quickly? Thanks very much to a newbie to the issue.
