Does Anyone Have Gluten Free List?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I was wondering if anyone had a simple list of food products that are gluten free? A list of foods that I can just go to a grocery store and buy. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now but I still struggle with figuring out what is gluten free and what isn't. I'm to the point now that I am so hungry. I don't know what to eat so I'm not eating much of anything. If anyone knows of just some regular foods I could get that would be extreamly helpful. Thanks so much! Susan

Hi! I have two great links. The first is 42 pages of mainstreams gluten-free foods!

http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf

The second is on

www.celiac.com

Go to "site index" and click on list of gluten-free and forbidden foods.

Be sure to check a list of forbidden ingredients! Very important to know what to avoid as well as what to look for. Good luck and hang in there! It gets easier with practice!

Just about all the produce (not wheatgrass) and meats/veggies that you want! I know, I know, you probably meant packaged/processed foods... But honestly, it's worth the extra time to KNOW they aren't contaminated due to a factory and have better tasting food. (steps down from soap box) And with a bit of practice, cooking from scratch doesn't have to take that long either. I don't do prepackaged stuff, but with the help of my skillet and the bbq, usually don't take longer to cook a meal than half an hour (if I do any actually "cooking" and don't make a cold dish).

I want to thank all of you so much for helping me. I didn't realize how emotional this disease and diet would be for me. I've been on the http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf site for a couple hours reading. I felt an overwhelming releif when I read all the things that I actully can eat, it made me cry. Thank you Dana. Everyone is so nice here. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this site to come to. Susan

Hey Susan, we're all in this together! You guys are the best buddies a celiac disease could ever have! Where else can you talk about loose bowel movements and vanilla extract in the same conversation? Just remember, no question is too "dumb" or too out there to ask.

By the way, if you haven't read in my other posts, Italy tests all kids for celiac disease by age six...and I am so inspired by that that I am determined to make it a part of the regular kindergarten admittance requirement in the US. Seriously! I'll keep you guys posted, but anyone who knows me knows that if I decide to do something I don't take no for an answer. celiac disease has taken a huge toll on my family--both my 11-year old daughter and are are celiac disease--and reading all these posts, day after day, filled with suffering in all shapes and sizes infuriates me that our alleged "best" system in the world is light years behind when it comes to celiac disease. FYI, it takes the average adult celiac disease in Italy 2-3 WEEKS from onset of symptoms to diagnosis. It takes the average American 10-11 YEARS! AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!

We have got to change this. Sorry for the rant. I just get so p/o'd about all the kids in pain, not to mention all of us! Hang in there everybody!

It is interesting to note that the above mentioned list is updated very often and the people that do this do it with the prime interest of helping people with gluten intolerance and not for personal gain on their part. Just from July 04 to September 04 the list went from 49 pages to 51 pages. Although it isn't all that handy to take to the grocery store, it sure is a Godsend for those that need some help in knowing that there are products that can be bought from the regular stores that fit into everyday life.

Susan,

There is also a great list, and constantly being added to, at the Celiac Forum in the Delphi Forums group. Go to www.delphiforums.com and go to Health & Wellness. Select Celiac and walla....it's a great group, too. I've seen many of the people "here" there...so many of us go to so many groups. You learn something new from each of them.

Best of luck and hang in there, it will get easier!!

Also, here's what I do when I get a list. I sit down with a highlighter and find all the things I might use/find in my area and highlight it. Then when I am looking for something specific, it's easy to find. Plus it makes creating my weekly shopping list a little easier when I can just go to a section and look for my yellow marks.

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
