Gluten Free Farmer's Market

Should people be allowed to make and sell "Gluten Free" breads at a market when made in a shared kitchen with gluten? Met vendor doing this, they are selling them along side gluten breads. They claim the flour is gluten free but they make them along with their non gluten free goods in the same kitchen same equipment.......this scares me that the health department does nothing.   And as a dedicated gluten free baker this really hurts the reputation of me and the way people perceive the Celiac community.

I agree!  It is one thing to prepare a meal in a shared kitchen (following safe practices), but to be in a shared bakery?  No way!  I ran into the same issue.  A new bakery/coffee house opened in my town.  The gluten-free baked goods were in the same case as the gluten baked goods.  

I suppose it could be done, but chances are no one wants to follow all those procedures:

You could report them to the FDA or email the gluten-free Watchdog.  The bakery is probably complying with local health department regulations (I think).

the FDA has, so far, not  been too concerned about Farmers markets.  There are plenty of bakeries that sell gluten-free along with gluten.  Most know to tell you that they may be CC'd.  I think a Celiac needs to know to ask those questions.  I think that Ennis might want to have large signage about this.  Perhaps someone can help him come up with a clever and brief way to say that his bread is made in a gluten-free kitchen and to ask others if there gluten-free is made that way. That it isn't really gluten-free if you make stuff with flour in the same space.

I get customers that come up all the time a bit questionable til I tell them I have celiac, at which point they seem to become quite happy and start asking questions. It is very pleasant to make these kinds of connections with people. Just today I had someone who bought my Paleo Cinnamon Cake by the slice. They came back asking how I kept it so moist and got another slice. Few days ago I had a lovely young mother who had a child they just  learned had celiac disease, They are trying to deal with it and get safe foods, that taste great so he does not feel so bad about it. I ended up making a few off menu items for them, like my garlic knots, and giving some tips along with introducing them to the forums. Also offer them deals when I can on goods and try to make the transition easier.   

I do tend to care TOO MUCH, and I have talked to that other person at the market, They label it gluten free but have in small print that their kitchen is not gluten free......still worried that someone new to the diet with a new diagnosis might not think too much on this -_-,    I just keep recalling my first few months gluten-free and think NO ONE should deal with the BS I did and the issues I had dealing with others who knew nothing of the disease and made assumptions or how false information and those ignorant to CC caused me so much pain and confusion.  Really would not wish this on anyone and draws out great sympathy for those who deal with it.

    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
    • Thinking I saw this earlier on another post....anyway I do have a thought on this. I get little blood blisters and sores in my mouth, and on my tongue from things I ended with allergies to. With celiac being a autoimmune disease it can sometimes effect your immune system, like make you more prone to random food allergies, histamine issues, food intolerance issues, and sensitivities. You might want to keep a food diary and mix up what you eating avoiding foods you have been eating for up to a week changing out sauces, oils, spices completely and see if you notice anything. If I eat anything with corn I get blood blisters in my mouth by example, a high PH food like if I use a undiluted vinegar on something had in the past giving me little sores...not had this happen in awhile. In the food diary keep track of the sores, body temperature, stool habits, how you feel, etc. Every little detail and see if you find some connection with foods you eat. Try a lower histamine diet perhaps if it is related to that.
    • Hi been diagnosed as celiac over 2 years ago have a bad episode at present with tongue and swollen sore nose looks like little blisters has anyone else had these symptoms and if so what made it stop please any advise would be fab
