As a Brit the loss of fish and chips was very difficult to bear! It's our national fast food (introduced by Italian immigrants I think) and when its done well its delicious.
I was really excited when a 'chippie' offering gluten free opened in my home town. I drive past perhaps a dozen in order to get there. A couple of weeks ago I was too late as they'd turned off the separate fish fryer so they gave me a portion of gluten-free chips on the house
I've just been to another one in Wales that has a 'gluten free tuesday' when they clean the fryers and for one day only you can get a guaranteed gluten-free fish and chips. It was delicious. Another welsh chippie in Benllech on the Isle of Anglessey has now gone completely gluten free as they found that the gluten-free batter mix which they'd switched to absorbed far less oil than it's glutenous forbear.
But even if grown near oats (rotation), wouldn't washing and sorting your rice three times, yield a pretty clean rice prior to cooking? We eat dried beans. The same thing could happen with them, but I sort and wash.
And eating rice causes you to drop your blood sugar? Typically, if a diabetic, it can cause a steep rise due to insulin resistance or the inability to produce insulin properly. Are you tracking with a meter? Has diabetes been ruled out?
I hope you figure it out!
