Hi everyone!

I've been gluten free for three years now and doing great except for the occasional accidental glutening. I know I just got glutened again and I really suspect the Wolff

I've been recommending this to my daughter, who is less sensitive than I am. I thought it was fairly safe. I think that I have reacted to it periodically, but that it was mainly good. I hope that you find out that it was something else. Can you please let me know? I generally stick to the groats because then I can see if there is something in there that doesn't belong. I think that they buy buckwheat from a lot of farmers so there could be a lot of variables.

I would be getting after your Whole Foods store to resume carrying the Pocono brand. I mean, they have these clerks all the time saying "did you find everything you need?" and not carrying the safe brand of gluten free buckwheat in a supposed "health food store" doesn't do anyone any good. It's bad enough that I can't use so many of their house brand packaged goods of plain ingredients, such as nuts, that would be the usual ingredients in gluten free cooking, because they are processed in a facility with wheat. :angry:

I like buckwheat, but it was only Rice Guy's suggestion to try the Pocono brand that kept me from giving up on it, some of these other brands had oat or "other" cross contamination. I try to find the groats, as d-steph says, so I can eyeball them for alien visitors :P before grinding them in a coffee grinder for flour. (a little of the flour goes a long way in recipes). With crop cycles coming and going, my spouse does not quite get why I keep more than one little box around.... it's only a 50 to 70 mile round trip finding the stuff.

MMM I love Pocono cream of Buckwheat!!! I had it the first time the other day and I made it like I use to make cream of wheat halof water half milk with some butter. I ate it like grits and than I ate the left overs the next day and put sugar in them. I was ecstatic it almost tasted like cream of wheat (which I havent had in three years),

You can also order it on line through some of these health companies order your other staples at the same time so the shipping costs will be worth it.

I just tried the Pocono cream of buckwheat! So good. I made it with almond milk, added vanilla bean pure maple syrup and sliced bananas. So good! Paired it with 2 scrambled eggs for a complete breakfast.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
