Haha cannot believe I wrote "Wholecornsstore" LOL Thats funny!! I am sguessing itred tho and still have the "Brain fog" It "Whole Food Market?" I cannot even remember the name of the store LOL Any hoo I found 1 bag of the noodles I bought and it is made by : bionature : They are Rice , Potato and soy. I said I only found one of the bag , but I think I only bought one bag. I had two and only ended out buying one. Well maby I should go to bed now huh?

That could have been my error. From time to time, my tablet likes to jump all over the place and inserts letters and words. I am guessing it happened when I was typing "cornstarch" and my less than brilliant tablet added it to your blurb. Weird!

I get the trader joes brown rice pasta. I can't hardly tell the difference. It has a nice texture too and is hard to overcook to boot.

I really like GoGo Quinoa brand. It is a rice/quinoa combo pasta and it has a mouth feel and texture of wheat pasta. I belong to the ONFC and order it all from there as it is much cheaper than any grocery store or Walmart.

I'm very happy for this thread! I'm new and I just made spaghetti last night with De Boles rice spaghetti. OMG it was NASTY. Weird tasting and like a thick glutinous sludge in my mouth. BLEAH. 

Sorry I have nothing to contribute as I'm still experimenting, but thank you all!

Ty because I just made something with De Boles, I ate it but didn't like it!!! 1st the water was super thick as it was boiling, would of been good for gravy!! They package said do not over boil so I boiled it 3 minutes less than they said ... It sucked up all the gravy I had and it was a big pile of mush!! Yuk!!! I will cook the rest up for the cats or something I am not sure!! Good thing I didn't try it on hubbs 1st! I just bought what they had at the store!! I guess I'd better buy some on line. pftttt!! Well I love to order on line!! :) I will go for the Tink next time!! :)

You are correct on every point you made.  Gluten free pasta will never be the same as we remember....it's a different animal.  I use it for spaghetti and it may last one day, as left overs, with the sauce combined.  It does suck up liquids and leftovers are not too good.

 

Over cooking gluten free pasta is not too good.  You have to experiment and try different brands.  I do like Sam Mills (found at my local Food Lion) and I can't wait to order some Depuma's Gluten Free Fresh Raviolli.

 

 Maybe someday it will be the pasta of the past. :)

I am not a big fan of pasta anyway or bread!! hahaha must be my body knew i was allergic :) Not really I was forced to eat Biscuits and Gravy as a child and sense then I have never been a big fan of Bread!! Specially wet bread!! noodles I am not a big fan of because Hubbs loves them and eats them at just about every meal!! I get sick of them! So when I am in the mood, they'd better be good!!

Ancient quinoa is somewhat forgiving if it is overcooked, but it depends on the shape. Elbows hold up better than any other shape.

I've had good luck with the rice & corn pasta at Target. It's the store brand, Archer Farms, & it's made in Italy.  I've tried several rice-only brands, & they seemed really starchy. One brand turned the cooking water gelatinous.  However, Target has no dedicated gluten-free section (in spite of my FB posts...lol) so you'll have to look for it in the pasta section.

 

 

After seeing your post, I bought some of the Archer Farms Fusili last night - WOW. I am hooked! Thank you, bc if not for your post I never would have tried it!

We like Tinkyada. I boil it in a *lot* of salted boiling water, and only until slightly undercooked.

I always know it's done when all the starch rises to the top.

 

A suggestion, no matter what kind of pasta you're using: undercook it a little (al dente), rinse it it cold water, then put it in with whatever sauce or such your having it with and let it heat back up in it. That seems to help get the starch off and it holds together a bit better.

Another fan of the Ancient Harvest corn/quinoa pasta here. We have tried many, many gluten-free pastas & this one is GOOD.

    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!   PPS( )  Inasmuch as your post can convey emotion, your's seemed positive  Stay that way! At times the diet can be a bit isolating and some friends and family may struggle to understand. I'm sure it will be difficult at times making good choices and staying vigilant when everyone around you doesn't have to think twice. Stick with it, your health is paramount and it will be worthwhile. In time your good friends will get it and those that don't aren't worth worrying about. There are great foods you can eat and if not, learn to cook them yourself
