This is a celiac game...reading labels. :lol: Not something we would need, but maybe good for kids who are just learning. There is one mistake. On one of the foods it says that you need to check maltodextrin for the source--really, it's always gluten-free in the US unless it says wheat in front of it, but hey!

:D:P:lol:

:lol:

HA! Wouldn't that just be convenient! A portable device that scans the bar code or something and says "yes! gluten free" or "no! not for you" :D

yes... apparently, if there is wheat they won't hide it (unlike Canada)

Maltodextrin in foods in the U.S. is NOT always gluten-free, but if it's made from the manufacturer is by law required to clearly state that. Occasionally you will see "wheat maltodextrin" or "maltodextrin (wheat)". Some maltodextrin from Europe is made from wheat because of their fear of GMO corn.

I'm new to the gluten free diet and am VERY careful with labels and am still learning. This was a quick fun game to play, thank you!! I did not get 100 % but I did not do that bad either. I learned malt flavoring has gluten in it and didnt know that before.

Thank you!! :)

I sent it to my friends--we'll see how they do !

Great idea to send to friends/family to let them see how to read labels!! By the way... I got 100% ~ BUT, one thing the game doesn't represent is cross contamination issues. I would never eat the chips in the game due to that fact!! :)

Good game for beginners. It is a start on teaching folks to read the labels! I got 100%, by the way! :D

I love the sarcastic touch, too. Like on the side of one of the corn flake boxes (the left one) (before you click on it) it says something about how there's a chance you could win $100,000, but more likely, you'll get a piece of worthless plastic. :lol:

On the same box, this time when you click it, it recommends that you add one cup of milk and fifteen teaspoons of sugar. For maximum impact, eat it really quickly while watching high impact cartoons in the morning. Sweeten to taste with more sugar. LOL

Yes, a good game for people who don't yet get it. A little more lighthearted. If it addressed cross-contamination, though, then you'd have to get into calling the companies and such...too complicated :P

I didn't think before I went there that I was going to do that good, but I got 100%. Unfortunately most of the labels I read are not that simple. :(

What fun! My 9 yo son took the quiz with me and we scored 100%. I'm gluten free for 1 year now and needless to say in our home it's a "family" change of lifestyle, so for my son to rate 100%, it shows how he's been paying attention.

I cannot do more than one at a time - the game freezes on whatver I picked and I have to close it and start it over, or open it in a different window. I can't get my score, or the correct answers, either LOL.

fun and educational... but would be more realistic if half of the stuff in the pantry listed my least favorite "ingredient"... natural flavors. makes me sooo very frustrated every time I see it. and sometimes when you call they cant/wont even tell you what it is!

although I think it is hilarious that there is a line of organic juice at a major healthfood store that lists organic natural flavoring as an ingredient. really, if you're that concerned about what you're eating that you'll buy organic, are you really just going to buy organic whatever and not know what they're putting in your food???

That was fun! I have to add that "natural flavors" is now my least favorite ingredient as well as it NEVER occured to me until I drank Tropicana lemonade and got so sick last week. I looked it up on thye Delphi list and sure enough, it was hidden under natural flavors. Could someone PLEAZZZZZ tell me what gluten is doing in lemonade? Arrrgghhhh....

I got a 100%. If only all labels were that simple!

Oh it gets better! It happened AGAIN this week. June 21st, a beautiiful day in my little summer seacoast city of Portsmouth, Summer Solstice, full strawberry moon- it's gorgeous so my husband and I go for a bike ride and decide- "Let's go have a margarita at one of the decks down by the harbor" "Great Idea!" So I get a frozen strawberry margarita with Patron silver tequila (because I know it has no coloring and no gluten) and the next day I have one hell of a hangover (Mind you, I had ONE drink). By noon, I'm realizing this is no hangover-- I'm glutened. So I call the restaurant and ask the manager to read me the ingredients on the strawberry margarita mix and he reads them- nothing resembling gluten until the last ingredient- natural flavors! Needless to say two days later i still have that "hangover" and am thinking about getting a shirt that says "I Hate Natural Flavors" :P

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
