Csa Product Listing

Hi!

I have the CSA (Celiac Sprue Association) Product Listing. They put one out every fall and have an 800 number to call to find out any updates or if you have questions.

It really takes all of the mystery out of what is and isn't gluten-free because, unlike me trying to call the manufacturer to find out if it's gluten-free, I might just talk to someone who is unknowlegeable, looks at the label to find "gluten", doesn't see it and thinks, 'yeah, it's gluten-free'. But with the CSA, they know exactly what to ask, who to ask, and they warn them that the info they give must be correct (law suits, etc.). The only drawback is that, because of liability and the fact that some man. change they way the make stuff, some companies who do make gluten-free products (like Sunsweet) aren't in the listing. But there are plenty who are, and it's definately comforting to know someone else has aleady done the research for me (I'm sick of calling everyone!)

I didn't see anthing here about it and thought I'd let everyone know. I bring it with me to the supermarket so I know exactly what to buy. It's like my bible!

You can obtain a copy here :

Or call 1-877-272-4272

They are very friendly and helpful there - very down to earth too.

Bye!

Another good product list that is updated anually is the GFCFDIET Shopping Guide. It is for people on a gluten free casein (or dairy) free diet. You can find out more information about it at:

I don't want to get the other one from CSA, since it would also include the products that contain dairy ingredients. Too much sorting through products and ingredients to be worth my while, but would be a great help to me if we can ever have dairy again!!

Thanks for postin ght information Donna.

God bless,

Mariann

    • Universal testing should start in all schools as early as possible.  I was diagnosed  in 7th grade from a basic sports examination by a Dr.   My Father basically turned a blind eye and said nothing wrong with my son.  A basic examination by a Doctor or good Nurse can see the signs of Gluten allergies. Just need the direction to do so. 
    • Thank you all so much.  It's so great to know there are people out there that have shared my experience. I was feeling quite alone in this. I could never believe that I just had anxiety, and that was that. There has to be a reason for my body to act this way. I feel validated,and hopeful and that's a huge thing for me. I'm going to see my doctor next week, and see what she thinks. I'm hopeful that with all my symptoms (anxiety, skin rashes for months, sensitivity to light|sound, headaches, vertigo, temper) she won't shrug me off. My mom has Crohn's disease so maybe a connection. Thanks again for your advice and your ear, it truly helps.
    • I do buy Plantar's nuts too.so if you are looking for peanuts, cashews, etc
    • I have bought nuts from other suppliers like these black walnuts that only process their nuts (no fancy flavorings...just these black walnuts): https://black-walnuts.com/ You do need to confirm that nuts are not processed on equipment shared with wheat if they are not certified gluten-free or in a shell by calling.  So, mostly, being lazy, I just order from Nuts.com.  
    • We were diagnosed with Diabetes first, but I think she already had celiac prior.   Our doctor told us that she has celiac only 3 months after diabetes.   Her TTG was off the chart high.   Our endo offered to formally diagnose her with celiac without the endoscopy, but I refused to believe she had celiac.   She had no symptoms.   An endoscopy confirmed it.   We went gluten free.  She still is a silent celiac.   We would never know about her celiac if it weren't for her type 1 diabetes.   They did all sorts of blood test on her.   I think her ttg was already off the chart high when she was first diagnosed with diabetes, but since the diabetes is so overwhelming at first, they simply waited 3 months before telling us about the celiac too.  I think this was a kind thing to do. Looking back, she did have a symptom, she stopped growing for a little over a year!   My daughter was always tall for her age, she was a huge toddler, 90th percentile.   One of the tallest kids in her class, then suddenly, I noticed that she became the shortest among all her friends.   At the time of her diagnosis, she was 10 years old, and was only 25th percentile in height.   She is 13 now, and is growing and gaining height.   She is about 5' 2" now.  So while she does not get sick with gluten, we take her gluten free diet very seriously.   Our TTG has been dropping continuously over the 3 years, and it is getting VERY close to be under normal range.   Just on the border, but not quite there...yet.
