I think this is exciting!  I've been gluten free for almost nine years.  And I love the progress.  I am certain that it won't fit everyone's shoes, but I love what's happening in the market place.  (I hope it's not disected so much, that it's pulled from the product listing).  We are a wide scope of peeps.  :D

 

Thanks for posting this Karen.

Thanks for posting this Karen.

I'm hopeful! These are not items for everyday use but might make a nice, easy treat. I'm hoping slightly cheaper or at least more accessible.

This is good news.

 

I read the comments where the link took me and Geez, Louise, some people are really negative.There were people slamming it for what it had in it, even before anyone knew what the actual ingredients were. Maybe it isn't for everybody, but I am going to wait for the facts before I pass judgement.

 

Gluten-free offerings from mainstream companies heighten awareness and offer more choices for us. You are, of course, free to choose not to use it.

 

To clarify, my remarks are addressed to the comments on the other forum, not to those posting here.

I'll withhold my excitement until I see the rest of the ingredients...hoping they are dairy free.

I sent them a note that they should list the ingredients on the website.  Maybe if they get a few requests for an ingredient list, they will add it?

I sent them a note. I am simply sitting back and reserving judgement until I know what is in these things. They aren't the sort of thing anyone, gluten free or not, should be eating regularly, as if you want pizza, or cookies, or pie/pastries you should be making it because it is healthier, one of the most missed things I find for me is the convenience. And to be honest, there are occasions I would consider selling my soul for crescent rolls. :ph34r:

I rarely use a pie crust but the ready-made gluten-free ones I have seen are shaped and in a pan.  These look like a tub.  That would make them nice to use for appetizers like empanadas or pinwheels or such.

I thought immediately of muffin pans. I swear I feel some days like 95% of the recipes on Pinterest are crescent rolls in a muffin pan. Without ready made crust type objects available, the convenience of the recipe is right out the window so what the heck is the point? Rolling out and cutting is about a billion times faster than making, rolling and cutting. Plus, lets face it... some people are not people pie crust makers.

AWESOME news....hopefully it won't be long before we'll have that beloved can of biscuits popping open -- I know they are bad for us...but some days you just want an easy biscuit and I do miss popping those cans open on occasion -- I think I had more fun with popping those than popping champagne -- of course I was never much for the bubbly...but an easy bacon egg and cheese biscuit was my comfort item in years gone by.

 

The pie crust looks interesting -- will be able to make chicken pot pies a bit more easily : )

Lay the crescent rolls (without rolling them) in an oblong casserole dish so they touch and hang over the sides. Put a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick layer of cream cheese on them. Now open a can of fruit (peaches are good) and pour it on top. Fold the hanging ends of the crescent rolls over the top. Bake it in the oven for a while until it looks done.  

 

I've never DONE this, mind you, but I watched someone else make this at a party once. I couldn't eat it, but everyone else was raving about it.

Apparently I got the condescending @ss in their customer service department. I guess at least he had the decency to use my actual name.

 

"Dear Ms. ******

 

Thank you for contacting us concerning Pillsbury gluten free products. We appreciate the opportunity to address this matter.

 

These products will not even be available in stores until June or July 2013. At this time, we do not have ingredient information available for them on the website because they are a brand new product. Please check back at a later time.

 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Jeremy Gold

I'm sorry, but I worked a lot of years in customer service, and the way he worded that is condescending and just plain rude. The tone just makes it sound like I am a moron for asking when they won't even be available for months. Maybe if they don't want people contacting them about it now they shouldn't have put on their facebook page that there will be a limited national release at the end of May, which is the pretty immediate future.

I wondered if they haven't finalized the ingredients yet? Maybe they will see how the limited release goes and change the ingredients if they don't do well.

They have to have ingredients for the limited release product. It isn't like updating a website is rocket science if they end up changing it. But if they weren't ready to roll out with it in a few weeks, and weren't sure a product was good, they wouldn't have announced it already. Which means that at this point they do have what they believe is a good product and do know what its ingredients are.

    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/
