Are you stating that Torani's website is out of date? If so, what is your source?

 

http://www.torani.com/faqs Under product-related questions.

I  am stating that caramel color and vanilla flavoring are not a gluten concern any more.   If you review the thread, you may find some valuable information that you seek. :)

 

EDIT:  Peter provided some relevent links, while I pondered my reply.

I'm just not entirely sure that caramel color or vanilla flavoring is the issue with the Torani syrups. The list of the ones that contain it isn't all inclusive of all of the tan or caramel-colored syrups or ones with vanilla flavor, for that matter. I'll just stay away from them -- I was just bringing it up as an example of gluten-containing ingredients not being disclosed on the label when the manufacturer states on their website that it does contain gluten.

 

For example, the salted caramel does not contain gluten.

It can be if you use a lot of specialty items. However, most meals can be made gluten free. Rice or potatoes are good as a starch for meals.

Do you have a crock pot? Toss in some chicken, with some sort of veggie, and let it cook it.

And don't forget, ziplock bags are your friends. Make big meals, portion them out and freeze them. I only cook once or twice a week. I have a freezer full of meals I made myself that I just grab and microwave during the work week.

In my area of northern California, I find Sprouts supermarket to be reasonable. One of our big costs is bread... my wife loves bread and has not been able to give it up even though I try to cook other whole foods. They often have Udi's bread on sale and I buy a whole bunch and freeze it.

 

I agree with other people who have posted here. There are lots of foods that are naturally gluten free, so switch to those kinds of foods. If you stick to things that are traditionally made from wheat it get's difficult to keep food costs low.

 

For instance, buy corn tortillas which are gluten free from several low cost brands rather than a tortilla made from a mix of other gluten free flours and made to "look" like other wheat tortillas or wraps.

 

I have a question to anyone out there that may be able to answer it. How does anyone afford to shop glutin free is there a good place to shop that is affordable. I have a house of 5 and my pockets aren't deep enough to afford the cost of glutin free foods. Help

It does sound like you're getting glutened by something -- I would start digging. Check for sources of cross contamination first. Pots that have had pasta cooked in them previously (I was reacting to mine because it had a white film inside that we could not scrub off that I can only assume is gluten from wheat pasta), strainers, anything porous. Check your medications and/or vitamins. Do you drink herbal tea? Some of those have gluten. Lipstick/gloss/balm?

I thought I had all of the gluten out of my diet and then 6 months in I began accidentally glutening myself with some fries I thought I had checked. It was minute amounts, and only every few days, but it was enough to make me feel slightly ill. I had to go back to checking every label before I ate anything (not a bad practice anyway). I think you might want to recheck your labels and cooking appliances.  Check your baking suppies too - sometimes stuff like sugar or baking powder can be contaminated.

 

As for the cost of easy meals on the go, I agree with the others that you'll need to do prep work and use things like crockpots. We eat a LOT of leftovers, and that helps. You can always push back dinner and eat later and make some protein bars or smoothies to pack along on the go.

are you keeping a food journal?  oh, snap, are you kissing your husband.  that got me in the beginning!   

 

honestly, everybody starts out bumpy.  i cried in the grocery store :(  i quit eating, too, for a day or so - i still do every now and again when something has got me and i can't figure it out.  even now, i get all carried away and eat something with many components (ie:  cuban sandwich yummmmmm) but it made me sick so i ate one of the components (ham, cheese, pork, pickles, olive salad) each day to see what was giving me heartache.  (turns out it was the vinegar in a particular brand of olive salad - said it was gluten free but my guts begged to differ loolz)  so i switch brands or make my own.  

 

hope you are feeling better soon

It is so frustrating to me. I cant figure it out and I read everything but then I hear that there are other things that seem to give people problems. Like Whey because things i get glutin free say they have whey in them and also diary. I take lactose pills but im not sure if it's helping......

    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”
