I'm probably the most annoying person on this forum. Lately I've been posting everydayūüė䬆 ok wondering a¬†few brand options for products just need a list....

Pickles:

Green olives:

Banana peppers:

Lunchmeat: turkey/salami/pepperoni

Hard/block cheese (cheddar or colby): (was told the meijer brand block cheese contained gluten through, that was by the store manager so don't know if it was fully accurate)

Marshmallows:

Vanilla and cinnamon:

Garlic powder:

That's it for now I'll probably think of more. Trying to add some easy things to my diet.

Just read the ingredients?  Its very unlikely to have gluten in pickled stuff or cheese (except the beer cheese).  Never seen a marshmallow with gluten (I like Kraft because I think they are better).  I use McCormick for most spices & vanilla..  they are just spices.  Never seen a vanilla with gluten.  

 

IN the US, wheat will be clearly announced in the ingredients (its a law).  Rye is only in a few things like bread or crackers & its an ingredient so it will be listed as an ingredient.  Barley is listed as barley or malt (usually barley malt).  Brewers yeast sometimes contains gluten - so avoid.  Oats need to say gluten-free oats or the product needs to be listed as gluten-free.

 

Lots of pre-packed lunch meats actually say gluten free on them.  Go to the store and look!

so demanding! :):) I should have stated that many people on the forums scare me and discourage me from venturing out into the gluten free world because of so much worry upon cross contamination (rightfully so) but also I feel like when people on these threads state they are constantly reacting to gluten free foods sold on the shelf, me as a semi new celiac get discouraged to try things other than chicken and potatoes. But I'm glad I got some insight on the marshmallows. Means I can make some candied yams for thanksgiving. Thanks for the advice I'll go shopping!

Most Boarshead cold cuts are gluten free. Boarshead has been the only brand I would eat ever.

I buy both.  Never been glutened by them.   I do avoid the deli counter.  I choose those that are factory packaged.

There are people convinced they react to water....

Use some common sense and read labels. Most Celiacs don't post on here and most probably live their lives believing when a product says it is gluten-free that it is gluten-free.   I have seen people convinced they are reacting to a gluten-free product but it turns out to be something else.  Don't let people scare you if it makes no sense.

If I look back to the few times I have been glutened, it was most likely food prepared by someone else (restaurants).  Usually when I was traveling.  But.... the travel was worth it.  You need to weigh the risks vs. the benefits.  It is why we keep saying there is a steep learning curve for celiacs.  For some going gluten free heals them fast.  For others, they need to indentify food intolerances. While for others, they must deal with other issues that complicate their healing.  But it can be done.  It just takes time and patience.  

Karen is right.

When I was a Newbie, I kept thinking that gluten-free bread was glutening me.  My hubby never reacted.  Turns out I had an issue with Xanthan Gum.  Now I bake for myself and never get a reaction.

I think there are degrees of gluten sensitivity and intolerances.  You just need to figure what works for you and that takes time.  

So, most of the foods you listed, I do not eat.   Not because of gluten, but of my various intolerances or dietary restrictions (e.g. diabetes).  We are all different and they way we cope with avoiding gluten can be very different too.  

I am going to fall off my diabetic wagon and eat a slice of my gluten-free pumpkin cream cheese cake roll on Thanksgiving though....and the mashed potatoes!  My blood sugar will take a hit, but my tummy will be happy!

    • As was explained to me - Your gut heals and yes, you probably could eat gluten again and not feel any ill affect, for a while.¬† However....!¬† The damage is starting all over again.¬† Like picking a scab off of a sore.¬† Sort of a nasty comparison but accurate.¬† Celiac never goes away.¬†¬†¬† Google the banana babies.¬† Very interesting as it fully explains why celiac was once thought to be a childhood disease,¬†
    • I take Slice of Life gummy multivitamins. I think it's free of all that stuff. ¬†
    • I wouldn't worry about the oven.¬† We moved in a rental house short term while waiting for our current home to go through¬†and¬† I wiped out the oven and then used it.¬† No problems.¬† When visiting a friend who cooks pies all the time ¬†I just pop a loose piece of tin foil over my stuff.¬† I think covering the stuff is more for my mental health than anything else!¬†
    • Wouldn't!¬† Couldn't!¬†¬† Shouldn't!¬†¬† Oh my!¬† I hear¬† what some are saying about keeping¬†areas clean, but no way.¬† I get not wanting to cook for a big group but a couple pretty easy, and cost effective, thoughts are a simple crock pot or two of chili, taco bar, potato bar or a salad bar.¬† I just did a Xmas party for 22 people, only 4 of us are gluten free, and did crock pots of chili.¬† for bread I bought gluten free hamburger buns, sliced them and then quartered them.¬† It made great¬†bread garlic bread..¬†
    • Jmg, Here is a nice thread where Ennis_tx has posted many dairy free link/resources in case you have not read this thread yet. Also to answer¬† your main question about Casein and as Awol noted about their being a difference about lactose and casein since lactose free cheese can still cause problems. See these livestrong links that summarizes the difference between lactose and casein and why it is usually the casein most people react too. https://www.livestrong.com/article/396733-types-of-casein-protein/ https://www.livestrong.com/article/412339-what-cheese-has-no-casein-or-lactose/ I would also review your medicine's.¬† I had a bad reaction to my BP medicine Losartan causing my dairy allergy to resurface. after 6 weeks off it my villi seems to be able to tolerate dairy again. I hope this is helpful and I hope you find out what is causing you your dairy problems. A little testing should help you determine if it the casein or the lactose in the dairy is the problem. Lactaid can help with the lactose problem.¬† Or as Awol noted try a lactose free cheese to see if dairy still bother's you . . . then it might the casein or check your medicine's as it was in my case causing my dairy problem. People do grow out of a dairy problem often.¬† . . so don't give up on it entirely. Check back in 6 months and see if your villi have healed. ¬† Mine did. I had a terrible milk allergy as a kid but grew out of it in time.¬† Thanks be to God. But do check your medicine (if you¬† take any) their might be something else ( that have taken for granite is safe) that might be causing unknown villi blunting as the Losartan did/was causing in my cause . . . causing my dairy allergy to flare back up. ****this is not medical advice only my experience after recognizing my BP medicine Losartan had caused¬† Villi blunting issues leading to my dairy allergy. I hope you find some of this information helpful and hang in there you can get better from a dairy allergy. I have from changing my medicine to a non-blunting medicine. posterboy, ¬†
