I notice they label allergens, but I just want to make sure this is a trustworthy brand. I just bought some Tesco sweet and sour sauce and I don't see any obvious sources of gluten. It doesn't list gluten on the label under the allergens section either.

I assume it's safe, but since I'm currently so surrounded by Tescos I want to make sure. :) Thanks.

Hi Mango!! :D .... I take it you're in Britain somewhere......

I do nearly ALL my food shopping @ Tesco's, they ARE pretty good for labelling

My advice is to (just to make sure) always read the ingredient list AS well as the allergen box

Enjoy!! :D

Hi Nikki! I'm in Prague...but I think the Tesco products here are the same (at least that's my guess since the ingredients are in English - often covered up with a Czech sticker - which drives me nuts) - but anyhow..thanks for the info! :D I like their organic stuff - mainly because the labels are easy to read and it's really inexpensive. :)

Hi I'm Katy and I've just recently found out my boyfriend can't eat gluten. We live in norfolk in the UK.

I'm vegetarian and I'm finding it really hard not to cook two seperate meals every night. I'm finding it especially hard not having real pasta, as I used to live on it. The gluten free stuff at Tesco and Sainsburys is awful. Where can I get a fairly nice substitute?

Actually I find the Tesco pasta one of my favourites!! :huh:

If you can get hold of the Italian make 'Schar' that is supposed to be the best (maybe Holland & Barrett??)

......I must admit I don't tend to bother with spaghetti anymore (sticks together :rolleyes: ) - but have good success' with spirals (fusilli)

I also rinse it with boiling water which cuts down on its 'stickyness'

I have found that after many years gluten free your tastes do change - and things that I also thought were 'disgusting' now don't taste too bad to me :lol: (but also you get better at making your food taste good ;) )

I would assume that Tesco products are the same (almost) everywhere and if I am abroad I definitely rather shop for the brand that I know are safe. Of course a double check on the ingredients list is a must!

Hello to my UK Friends

I returned from the UK after a month long trip all of it in England the southern parts Cotswold to Ipswich. The UK celiac society puts out a book every year listing the gluten free food brands that are safe and it updates it on their website. They also have an email address where your can ask them questions. I think they also have a phone number.

Their website will also lead you to local groups. They will give you any information on meetings or other activities and they sometimes have recommendations from people in the area about eating establishments.

I found them quite useful. There was a great tearoom in Morton in Marsh that served gluten-free food. I stayed mostly in places where I did my own cooking or just had the vegetables at restaurants or pubs.

I must say you folks are a lot further ahead in Celiac awareness than we are in the US. I ran into many people who were Celiacs or knew of one. Most restaurants were very aware of food issues.

Actually the directory lists products from companies that PAY which the companies say are gluten-free.

CUK does no checking ... or verification however they have trademarked the gluten-free symbol so that companies can't use it without paying.

oops forgot to say.....

You need to check labels at ALL levels.... don't rely on one.. check all the small print.

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
