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!

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

    • I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff.  And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family.  But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to have outside food in. From what I have seen, this family didn't handle the whole situation well.  If they had brought a small discrete lunch in, waited until the others had their food, then pull it out and not made a big fuss, they probably would have been fine.  I have also been told that this tavern does do a safe gluten-free meal.... 
    • So sorry it is difficult.  There is soy and fish flavoring in everything!   I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten.  I can feel your pain.  Do you want me to look for a base contact for you?   I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.
    • I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up. In this way we do not end up feeling out of place and can try to live a more normal life with social interactions and gatherings if all is handled well. I am unsure if this goal was met or blown out of the water . One point I think this applies also and has for me so far it seems, is theme parks. Places like Six Flags where your stuck in their grounds, and they can not guarantee food safety. I found that with my celiac diagnoses I can talk to them and be allowed to bring my own food into the park. This not only allows me to head out and eat but also saves me a ton of money >.< as expensive as gluten-free food is theme park food is like another 3x that. They just put a medical sticker on my cooler and I store it in a locker in the park and go back to it for snacks and food. Odd thing from years past.....I have a life time member ship to Six Flags, But I can not go unless someone else is with me for when I get anemic, or sick so I go once a year if even that (not gone this year or last year). My other option is to book a hotel near by or sleep in my car. (I get deathly tired at night and pass out around 9pm). There is also the lines I have to buy a flash pass to skip the lines, or I have panic attacks being unable to move for hours waiting for a ride.  
    • I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis.  My son however tried to go gluten free during that time.  His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him.  Everyone eats school lunch. Period.  It was difficult.  If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled eggs from Lawson's or your nearest convenient store.  You may feel more comfortable rinsing them before eating them.  I would also eat the plain rice onigri.  If you know the contents of the mayo you could eat mayo/fish onigri. Stay away from the ones that use soy sauce.  Maybe look at tins of fish while you are there to see if they contain soy sauce. The other idea is to connect you with someone on a base.  They have great American grocery stores with lots of options and American doctors and hospital.  They deal with American insurance companies.  I looked into that for my father in law who came to visit while terminal.  He had postal insurance and was 100% covered in Okinawa on base.  Do you have military connections there?   Camp Foster or Kadena grocery stores are the big ones with the best selection.  The others may be too small for your needs.
