Whole Foods, Sun Harvest

Greetings!

We're new to the idea of a gluten-free lifestyle and I've been doing some checking around for natural food stores. So far I've come back with a couple of "big" ones - Whole Foods and Sun Harvest (part of the Wild Oats family). Does anyone shop at one of these where you live and is it worth the trip for a gluten-free? Do you find what you need there? I want to be prepared with gluten-free food, as I expect my daughter will have to make that switch in the near future.

Also, a bit OT, but my daughter is milk-free (possibly all dairy considering her reaction to food w/egg this past week) and I was wondering if anyone happens to know if either store is DF friendly as well.

Thanks much!

My husband has celiac disease as well as Lactose Free. We shop at Whole Foods every 2 weeks or so to get supplies. They have a great selection of different things from Flours to pasta, gluten-free breads and alot more. The store in our area, Orlando, Fl, carries chocolate chips that is gluten-free and Dairy Free. It's called Tropical Source Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. We buy them buy the case and they taste great. I've never heard of Sun Harvest. Have to see if there is one in our area.

Hope this helps you. Jean

Wild Oat's and Trader Joe's are my regular grocery stores (and were before going gluten-free), so I'm a bit biased. :-P (Of course, I budget to purchase organic produce/meat and purchase next to no processed foods (though I do buy canned tuna and pumpkin! ;-) So the price difference is something I've planned for already.)

My closest Whole Foods is 30 miles away, and I feel like dancing every time I go there. They have a frozen gluten-free section with hamburger buns, cinnamon roles, pizza crusts... Lots of cereals and pastas, frozen meals. I love it! I also love Trader Joes. Ask for their Gluten Free food list!

So they actually have the gluten-free sectioned out in certain areas? I was wondering if they did that or if you would just have to read labels throughout the store. I was debating printing out the two stores' product list. They keep one handy in the store to help with shopping? That would be great.

Thanks to all who gave feedback. This board has been super! :D

The Whole Foods near me doesn't have an entirely separate gluten-free section, but all the gluten-free foods are next to each other on the shelves so you don't have to waste time scutinizing every item to find one that's OK. I haven't seen a detailed gluten-free list at Whole Foods, but Trader Joe's has one.

One caveat about the store-brand pre-bagged grains and dry beans at Whole Foods: be sure to check the label for an allergen disclaimer. Everything in my store says it's processed on the same equipment as wheat, and I have had a few reactions. So be cautious--as always!

    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
    • Hello I m new at this forum. I am 24 years old. My mother and I have hypothyroidism and a day before I found out about celiac, the symptoms of celiac and hypothyroidism are almost similar and i have read that both diseases can go hand in hand. I have felt that every time when i eat macaroni and spicy rice  I have loose stool. I eat whole wheat loaf and that doesnt bother me at all. So I want to order tests for tTG IgA and immunoglobulin IgA . I m not on gluten free diet so do i need to have more gluten before tests???
