I found this place through a web search, and they have the best selection of gluten-free products I have seen outside of the Specialty Food shop at Sick Kids (not always convenient to get to).

They also have a lot of frozen prepared foods like lasagna etc, as well as Kinnikinnick donuts - so damn good(!) and a pretty good variety of breakfast cereals.

NKM Chapman's, 309 York Mills Road (at Bayview), North York, Ontario, M9M 4E9, 416.444.4477, fax 416.444.3543, steve@chapmans-foods.com

"Chapman's 35 foot long counter of prepared foods offers products suitable for special diets, such as lactose/dairy-free, diabetes, low fat, vegetarian, and gluten-free".

(from http://www.geocities.com/glutenfreetoronto/retail.html)

Noah's at Yonge and Eglinton (may be available at other Noah's in T.O.) also has 1 kg bags a flour mix (rice, low fat soy, corn and something else) that can be sub'd cup for cup in baking. I use this exclusively and baked good always turn out really great. I called the company for a break down calories, fat and fibre and they weren't able to give this info...I'm watching my waist line ;)

P.S. I also found that Grocery Gateway has gluten-free Jet Puffed marshmallows! Other brands don't list what the marshmallows might be rolled in to prevent them from sticking together, I heard quite often it is flour. I can finally make rice crispy squares! :lol:

There's also Ambrosia's on Doncaster Avenue just north of Steeles on Yonge Street. They carry glutino pretzels and cookies etc. and have a few Amy's products and frozen muffins. They are also a little cheaper then Chapmans. And Main Food Mart on Bayview (north of where Chapmans is) they sell a few gluten-free products some at a higher price, but the cookies etc. are usually lower priced than Chapmans. There's a Noah's on Yonge Street between Bloor and Wellsley that sells fresh cookies from a gluten-free bakery in kensington market.

There is also a shop on Bayview (seem to be a lot on bayview!) between Eglinton and Millwood called Paches and Green, I went to pick up some herbal tea actually and dicovered that they had a pretty big gluten free section! Soy pasta available there too.

As I was leaving, I started talking to the owner George about celiacs, he gave me a slice of bread and a carrot muffin from a new baker that he will selling products for - they were the BEST tasting gluten-free items I've EVER had! The bread was moist and slighty springy and chewy just like normal bread and was not bland at all but had a very pleasant flavour!! The muffin was so good I thought I could the hallelua of Handels Messiah being sung by unseen cherubs in the distance. Moist, springy, flavourful, not oily and not dry and crumbly! I shared it with my boyfriend (who isn't a celiac sufferer, but has tested many gluten-free products and my own baked goods) and he also conquers that it is the best gluten-free muffin he's had. I had carrot, but they also had banana and apple spice (I think, they're was a third flavour).

Check Peaches & Green and try these baked goods!

I also had a reeeealy good brownie from Chapman's recently along with flaxseed cookies that can help out the 'plumbing' ;)

Here's the Peaches & Green Link:

Happy Shopping!

Found another great place - Sweet Everythings - at the St. Lawrence Market - North side farmers market (there is no sign but the up the centre aisle ha;f way back). They have a great selection of gluten-free baked good - muffins (that are as large as a regular muffin - as some gluten-free muffins tend to be quite rather small and flat), banana bread, cookies, brownies, scones, and also offer pizza's (you have to order those ahead of time) etc. They are there every satuday from 5 am - 2pm. (they also have regular baked good but assured myself and another gluten-free shopper that all gluten-free products were truely gluten-free)

I've tried the scones (a little dry), brownies (really good - they specialize in making belgian chocolate), banana bread (very moist), and their cranberry and 'ontario' muffins (carrot muffins with some bits of berries - both were very good and very moist) also tried their 'dream cookies' - two gluten-free peanut butter cookies with a creamy peanut butter middle dipped in chocolate - they are addictive. All in all they have great baked goods, very moist and reasonably priced. I got a 12 muffins, 4 scones (that are so large I cut them in half and eat half as a serving), a banana bread loaf and two very large brownies for $35. Their items also freeze very well.

You can e-mail them weekly to find out what gluten-free items they have to offer that weekend, if you want to place an order they ask that it is placed before wednesday for a saturday pick-up.

Here's their e-mail address for those interested in contacting them:

Have a great long weekend!

Hi!

Thought I would share this. I found some gluten free snacks at "The Bargain Shop" in Scarborough at Kennedy and Lawrence.

They are Snakatas. They are from Australia. They come in four different flavours:

Sea Salt & Vinegar

Supreme Cheese

Smoked Barbecue

Sour Cream & Chives

I have tried all four (along with my kids) and we all love them. They are delicious!

I went back and bought a whole bunch to stock up - now I just have to figure out how to keep them from the kids!!!! LOL!

Have a great day!

Karen

If you're gluten-free and haven't yet gone to the new Wholefoods chain, do.

By far the best selection of gluten-free in the city! labels on the shelves let you know what is purely gluten-free. They also specialize in organic and specialty foods. Very yummy.

It's pricey, but worth it.

Located in Hazelton Lanes in Yorkville.

    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
