hi ppl. my mum-in-law has celiac disease, she is 79 and was only diagnosed about 5 years ago. she had gone all her life enjoying breads and cakes etc with no prob up until then. she was wondering if anyone knows if they make gluten-free pastries, like puff pastry. she loves pies and stuff like that and used to love to make her own pies using puff pastry, but since she got diagnosed with celiac disease hasnt bothered. she thinks that maybe there might be a recipe to make her own pastry, that she could try if anyone has one, that is if it is not commercially available. any help would be great. just a side note, one of her sisters has just been diagnosed with celiac disease as well one of her 3 daughters, so it is cetainly going around in the family.

cheers

thanks for the reply stacie, although i guess i should have mentioned that we are in australia!! never mind. i know there are places here in Asutralia where you can order stuff over the net. we are lucky enuff too that one of our local supermarkets has a very limited range of gluten-free foodstuffs, so all is not completely lost!! ha ha. just love to find gluten-free pastry.

Hi eppo,

I have not tried this recipe before, so I can't say how it will turn out, but I found this in one of my gluten-free cookbooks.

Sweet Pastry Crust

Ingedients:

2 TBSP shortening

1/3 cup sugar

2 TBSP oil

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring

1/3 cup potato starch

1/2 cup corn starch

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

3 tsp water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine shortening and sugar. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix well to remove all lumps. Place dough into bottom of a greased springform pan. Top as desired, then bake until crust is light golden brown.

This thin crust is perfect with fresh fruits and tarts. It is used with the Apple Tart recipe in this book, but other fresh fruits work well, too.

I hope this works out for you and your mom. :)

God bless,

Mariann

    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok. 
    • Yes, i was 230 lbs upon diagnosis. My crp had been high for over 10 yrs. The first year i lost 70 lbs of water. Then i started to realize my continued irratic gi problems were more intollernces from processed foods as well as things like dairy and legumes. I went on an elimination diet and lost 20 more lbs. I finally stopped at 135 lbs which was still healthy weight, not that i had seen it until high school. Check your folic acid. Just found i am positive for one of the MTHFR genes meaning i cannot convert folic acid, which i lost stopping processed food, so i take 3000 mcg l-methylfolate daily. This is improtant because the body needs to detox all the gluten and chemicals i stored undiagnosed so when that was blocked i developed terible nerve pain. I am 10 years clear and things are amazingly better. I am finally adding in foods i could not tolerate like avacados and turkey. I had a pill cam and colonoscapy this year and there is no visible damage like there was 10 years ago. I think it was my clean diet and time to heal. I should have had a full vitamin panel when diagnosed but had no follow up advice except stop gluten. Am on d3, k2 as well. L glutamine helped heal my gi and d ribose gave me some blood sugar stability. I get these at amazon, NOW brand. My d3 is blue bonnet since its fish not lanolin. My k2 and l methyfolate is life extension. It is a long journey but it has become normal to live gluten free and my diet is so much healthier i think my longevity is increased because i have to eat this way. Plus the arterial sclerosis i had 10 yrs ago is gone, cleaned by my body and food. Well wishes.
    • Thanks for the well wishes Jmg. It appears that you & cycling lady think the sugar maybe our issue, let me clarify that's not our issue for it is manifesting as one of our additive intolerance exposure symptoms. One both my son and I have discovered over 2016. It's not a sugar crash type or a gi symptom in our case . But excellent info for consideration for others. My concern was about additives not listed on a label which is currently not required by regulations and the havoc it can cause the consumer .It's a clear cut symptom we get when exposed to a corn derived additive. At this juncture we are possibly sensitive to a highly processed flavor or coloring from a source other than corn that would be helpful to know what that source is per label  . That's where transparency in labeling would be helpful to me and others like me. The links I included on my post reflect concerns by others out on the web  to this concept. The food diary is helpful and has been to us in discovering these sensitivity issues, but not ideal when not all additives are labeled. the label says 100 percent juice but my body says otherwise . I am well aware from personal job exposure that the food industry is not required to list every ingredient particularly if it is not a top 8 allergean which is why I went look for the info to share. As you both pointed out and maybe even helped to bring to light the importance of sugar labeling my dream is to see it a step further with additives.      
    • Makes me wonder when the FDA is going to call gluten an allergen...
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
