For those of you who purchase and/or reference the CSA Gluten-Free product listing, be WARY!! On page 189, I found beer listed as a gluten-free product for Chipotle. When I asked the CSA execs to send out a warning to people, they ignored my request and claimed that the information had been changed for future issues of the product guide.

The fact that a blatent gluten-containing food such as beer is put in the guide and no one there second guessed it or caught it is scary to me. I am using my guide with a grain of salt.. I've always been a label reader... but I thought this guide could help me as well as family members purchase gluten-free foods. I am worried about what else CSA didn't catch.

When I was first diagnosed I bought this guide (last year). I found it to be expensive and not very helpful. I realized much of what I needed could be found on the internet or by making a phone call. I was not impressed.

I did the same thing! I bought it last summer--I have looked up a few things, but most of the brands in there are not available in my area. The best source of info about products, in my opinion, is either here or contacting the companies directly. The second is kind of a pain, but you get the most up to date info that way. I looked up page 189 in my copy, and it was not the restaurant section. And the restaurant in question was not listed at all in mine. I thought that they mailed out updates, but in the 10 months I've had the guide, I have received none. And I did pay 1 year's dues!

I plan to get the Clan Thompson Food SmartList for Pocket PC (brand new! I helped beta test it!), I have been impressed with them so far, and they seem stay on top of the updates. Its $59 for it with a years updates.

What is CSA Gluten-Free product listing?

Sounds like it was written by a few too many beer drinking guys, or perhaps they were drunk when they wrote it? HA! It's all about the almighty dollar.

Perhaps I've become skeptical -- well I'm more cynical -- I was NEVER like that until I came down with celiac disease. I don't believe anyone for their word anymore. History has proven almost everyone lies and gets away with it. This is a prefect case in point.

We had purchased the CSA product guides for 3 years and while they are ok, the products that they show as gluten-free cannot be found in the NJ area; most of the supermarkets noted in the CSA book are not in NJ either, so while it might be a good publicaton for the mid-west or west coast, it is not the proper publication for NJ area. So I stopped buying it this year. I am very interested in Clan Thompson....how long (in hours) does it take to download when you buy it for the first time?

The beta version for Pocket PC that I tasted was only a couple of megs, so un a dialup should take around 15 mins, 30 mins at extrem worst. Dunno how big the full version is. But you you email them they can tell you. They are very helpful. For average 56k dialup you can use about 3 mins per megabyte as a rule of thumb. For averag 28k you can use 5mins per meg. Thouse are rough ideas only, not exact, but getyou ball park at least.

Ms. SS--Vincent posted a link to it above. It is a 3-ring notebook of current gluten-free foods, as reported by the manufacturers--put out by the Celiac Sprue Association. I bought it shortly after I was diagnosed. I had no idea where else to get info--I had not yet found this board, and my doctor was no help. I would not buy it again--it is far from a complete list and a lot of the stores are not in my area. It was of some help in the beginning--and the list of company phone numbers did come in handy a few times. I think I paid $35 for it, and another $25 for dues to become a member. I am dissapointed, though, as they told me they printed updates and would mail them out to members. In the entire year I was a member, I did not get one update.

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
