Help! Wrong Info In A Gluten Free Cook Book
0

4 posts in this topic

I recently received a gluten free cook book as a gift. The whole front section is dedicated to celiac disease and it lists all the food you can and can't have. However, there are 3 recipes that call for CousCous (made from Semolina- made from duram wheat) and 1 recipe that calls for Orzo (also a wheat pasta) and 1 recipe that calls for egg noodles (I dont know about you, but I have never seen an egg noodle that is gluten free). I have been gluten-free for about a year now, so I know that these are mistakes. However, I am worried that someone who is new to Celiac wouldn't know and eat these recipes. Should I call the publisher and let them know...what does everyone think?

I would definitely contact the publisher if you feel this is an error! (Which it most certainly appears to be)... is there maybe a recipe in the book to make gluten-free versions of these pasta's or a suggestion on where to buy gluten-free versions of them??? Otherwise, yeah, blatant error and they need to be made aware of it.

What is the name of the cookbook?

They make no reference to Gluten Free CousCous, Egg Noodles, etc. and there are no recipes either. The name of the cook book is "Healthy Cooking - Gluten Free Cookbook" by Paul Morgan.

I tried searching for this book and could find very little information about it... amazon .com doesn't carry it...

Definitely contact the publisher about the errors.

    • Hi Michelle and welcome I'm guessing you're like me and from the UK? Which means that sadly much of Tessa's list won't be accessible, but don't worry there's plenty to eat here too. I'll go ahead and reply as if your a Brit, if not ignore me Be careful not to scare yourself by doing this. There are a lot of sites that sensationalise or try to scare you into buying their products. You've found a good site here, make use of it, but don't be afraid to turn the web off if its all getting a bit much.  One site you should go to and join is Coeliacs UK. They will send you a book with all the brands you can trust and this will be worth its weight in gold. You can also access it online. Highly recommended.  As above. Go and have a great time. The diet can start on your return. One final thing. It can get overwhelming in the first few months and it's a massive shock, at times you will feel sad and maybe resentful, you will go through a bit of a grief process in other words, but it will get better as you learn the ropes and you will feel so much better once you're on the diet.  As you learn try to let others around you know so that they understand and you don't feel too isolated. Use this site too, there's lots of help and understanding available here Best of luck and enjoy Turkey!    
    • celiac disease typically screws up your whole autoimmune system. in my case, it took several years to identify all of the intolerances. there are different responses to different substances... you may have one or several of them depending on the substance. Mine include nausea, abdominal pain, lethargy, brain fog, cramping, muscle tightness (resulting in joint pain), muscle spasm, creepy crawly skin, skin dryness leading to lesions/ psoriasis, diarrhea, constipation, sudden weight gain/loss of 2-3 lbs per day.   the frustrating part is/was that the more I stayed away from gluten and other offenders, the better/stronger i felt but then i would discover another substance that had been hiding but now was brought to the forefront since the maybe-more-offending irritant was now gone. this went on for a couple years.  i now have a huge list of offenders and very few acceptable foods, but I keep reading and experimenting hoping for a more varied and healthier diet.   i refer to myself as a human test subject because essentially you have to try something in order to gauge its effect.
    • Enjoy your trip and worry about the diet until after you get back unless you are having severe symptoms.  Then follow Ennis' advice about gluten-free restaurant cards in various languages.  Lots of us have traveled successfully.  You just need to prepare a bit more.   In the meantime, savor your gluten-filled food until your endoscopy.  My advice (anemia was my only symptom)?  Do not over do it.  I pigged out.  By the end of seven weeks (I had lots of work issues that prevented an earlier endoscopy), my gut was hurting.  
    • Yes- her sister has actually been genetically tested through Prometheus labs about 5-6 years ago by a gastric when she was having lots of stomach issues. She had recently been diagnosed with the Hashimoto's and was having recurring bouts of constipation/diarrhea.  i think that is another reason why I kind of thought that my other daughters problems were not celiac. Their father and I do not have any known autoimmune so we should probably be tested at some point. 
    • I don't see any gluten
