That could be quite useful for those who are looking to purchase on line, especially those who are in rural areas and don't have the luxury of having specialty stores or major supermarkets that carry gluten-free items.

As for me, I am adamantly against ordering things on-line. I just can't seem to get myself over that paranoid hurdle that my personal information (i.e. credit card numbers, address, etc. etc.) is properly protected.... Same with on-line banking, I just can't seem to get comfortable about that, I prefer to go into the bank and actually deal with a living person!!! :P

I know what you mean Karen, about being paranoid. I think we need to be these days! I do shop online, because I do live in a somewhat rural area, and am limited by what the Whole Foods and Trader Joes carry in the nearest big city. They don't carry nearly enough, and even with shipping charges I can get a better price online, when I buy in bulk. I only shop at reputable sites and use my credit card that has fraud protection. I also don't do any online banking, or bill paying. I've just heard too many horror stories.

celiac3270, thanks for putting up the link to the article, it can certainly help to point new gluten-free shoppers in the right direction.

God bless,

Mariann

Even with Kroger and its wonderful nutrition section nearby, I still find myself needing to order on-line in order to get enough at a reasonable price to feed our larger family (we keep a gluten-free household due to a mix of extreme sensitivity and a younger child who sneeks inappropriate foods if they are around). I also try to use only reputable vendors and keep a credit card specifically for that purpose. The credit card also helps me to track purchases more easily...not to mention that my pantry does not always respect my checking account balance!

My allergy to rice causes me major problems with buying mixes. I really need to look at the costs of things online and compare them to my whole foods store. My Kroger does not have a gluten free selection that I can find. I will have to make hubby take me so I can look up and down every aisle! And not let him rush me!!

You're right, not all Kroger stores have a gluten free section. Unfortunately, I live in one of the areas that does not. Once every other week I take a trip to a larger city that does and also visit a health food store there. It's a 1 1/2 hour trip, one way. But it is nice to know it's there. I usually just end up ordering my things online. The selection is much better and it is often hard to find enough time to make the trip. My kids are very involved in sports and church activities and that takes up most of our time. Online is just easier for me. I have found WalMart to be very unfriendly to the Celiac, and that's about all we have closeby other than Kroger.

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
