Hi, everyone--I'm embarking upon my first gluten-free thanksgiving, and I want to make some pumpkin goodies. I worry about CC issues because I'm super-sensitive to gluten, so has anyone used Libby's canned pumpkin without problems? It says the only ingredient is pumpkin, and it's a Nestle product, which is supposed to label for gluten, but I'm such a worrier about cross-contamination.

Thus, anyone here use it and trust it? Thanks for any help!

I used Libby's Canned Pumpkin a couple weeks ago. I called costumer service and they confirmed that it was gluten-free. They were very helpful. The rep. said they have had a strong policy for many years on listing all ingredients on the lable.

I was worried about cross-cont. as well. So just to be on the safe side I also checked on the Libby's Pumpkin Pie Filling and it she said that it is gluten-free as well.

pumpkin cooks up very quickly and easily if you'd like to try doing it yourself. If you get those smallish, round baking pumpkins, remove the lid, scrape clean, replace lid and bake for 45 minutes on a cookie sheet... you can scrape out all the cooked pumpkin with ease. You can flavor the inside of the pumpkin with all the necessary spices prior to baking if you want. It's very easy.

Hi, Jen--I've copied my recipe below, which is from Pamela's Products. However, I will warn you that I have not made it yet but have been wanting to for a long time. I use Pamela's mix for most of my baking, and I haven't been disappointed yet, so I'm hoping this will be good, too. The banana bread I use from her recipes is excellent, so since this is a bread, too, I'm hoping it's comparable.

Good luck! I hope it comes out well!

Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Nut topping

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 cup of canned pumpkin

1-1/3 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon of cloves


2 tablespoons melted butter

2 tablespoons of packed brown sugar

1/4 cup of nuts (sliced almonds, walnuts, pecans)

Beat together butter, sugar, egg, and pumpkin. Add remaining ingredients and mix together. Pour into a large greased loaf pan. Mix together topping and pour over loaf top before baking. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or when toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.

Hi! I feel so happy to find these postings about pumpkin...it's getting such lovely fall weather and I would hate to miss having some pumpkin pudding, pie, or bread. This is my first autumn as a diagnosed Coeliac, and so it's all a bit new to me...but I am undaunted! I will experiment with some recipes and gluten-free flours, etc. I am actually feeling better now, as nutrition status has improved greatly over the months and I am also benefiting from physical therapy now to restore my strength. I want to really enjoy this time of year and the coming holiday season. Having some yummy foods will be a big part of that for me, as I love to cook and feed my family well including myself. Look out, 2017! HERE I COME!

Thank you for the information and the recipe!

I got a nice Gluten Free Pie crust recipe and one for a Crust-In Pumpkin pie where you blend gluten-free oatmeal into a flour and mix it with the other ingredients, tad soft but works great.

Crust-In Pumpkin Pie

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
45g oat flour
45g coconut sugar
Pinch of pure stevia
1 can pumpkin puree
3/4cup almond milk (180g)
2tbsp coconut oil (30g)
1tbsp ground flax
2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 400F and spray a 8" pie pan with oil
2. In a large mixing bowl combine the first 7 ingredients and stir well
3. In a separate bowl, combine all the liquid ingredients with the flax and whisk well.
4. Pour wet into dry and stir well to combine, then pour into pan and set for 5 mins then bake 35mins
5. Transfer to the fridge to allow it to set up 8-12 hours or overnight



Grain Free Pie Crust

Cooking oil or parchment paper
2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt plus1/8 tsp. salt
Pinch of stevia
2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. coconut oil, melted
2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Either grease the bottom of an 8.5-in. spring form pan or pie pan OR line an 8-in. square baking pan with parchment paper.
3. In bowl, combine all ingredients; stir to form crumbles.
4. Transfer crumbly dough to prepared pan; press dough down evenly and firmly with hands.
5. Bake 14 minutes.
6. After baking, remove; press down crust with a spoon. (For a 9-in. pan, increase all ingredients by 1.5 times. Baking time will remain the same.)

Add 1 tsp cinnamon + 1tsp coconut oil to the pie crust for a gram cracker like version

    • They found my niece’s Crohn’s with a pill camera — way beyond the reach of both scopes.  But my niece was 19.  Not sure if they would consider a pill camera in a younger child.   Happy that your doctor is willing to work through all this!  
    • I am sorry that your son is ill.  It is time to have his antibodies checked to see if they are coming down as recommended by celiac experts as part of follow-up care.  You might think he is gluten free, but maybe he is getting hidden sources of gluten.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ If his result are fine and celiac disease is not the cause, your GI can look into other issues (e.g. IBD: Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis).  Consider a food and symptom diary.  Is he off dairy?  Lactose Intolerance is common in celiacs.  It can be temporary.  Of course he can react to any food.  I hope you and your doctor can figure it out.     
    • Consider Graves Disease.  My mother struggled with it.  She did not have all the classic symptoms of Graves, but she did end up with permanent eye damage (she sees double).  My cousin had it even more severe.  Besides eye muscle pain, she had the classic eye budge (Grave’s affects the muscles in the eye and/or other muscles in the body producing weakness). I have have Rosacea, but it presented  as Ocular Rosacea and not on my face.  My Hashi’s first presented with thyroid enlargement.  I was never cold, lost hair or gained a pound.  My celiac disease presented as anemia with none of the classic GI issues.  What I am saying is that Autoimmune Issues can have various symptoms and are often systemic.   There was a point where I was having thyroid swings.  When hyper my eye muscles hurt.  Scared me because my mom was pretty much forced to give up working.  So...... Do not mess with your eyes.  Get checked by an ophthalmologist.  
    • My son was diagnosed celiac in May 2017 and been gluten free since April. He still has mucus in his bowel movements even though he eats gluten free only. Has anyone else got these symptoms.  Going to the Dr tomorrow as getting  no answers off his paediatrician. I am wondering if he got intolerance to something else as well. 
    • Hi there. I've had ongoing issues with my eyes for a few months now, including pain in my eye orbit, swelling over and under my eyes, dry, wrinkled and flaking under eye skin that comes and goes. I thought that I was allergic to mascara that I had just purchased; that seemed to be when my symptoms began. I'm presently I'm thinking that I have blepharitis. I'm also wondering about Sjorgens syndrome. I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist in a few weeks (my GP told me to put vaseline around my eyes-thanks for nothing!). I'm practicing good eyelid hygiene and have noticed an improvement in just a day! Maybe you can check into those? Good luck to you!
