  1. I've read this article my comment to Celiac.com when I sent a review of this article is that if this injection is successful, because gluten-free has become a huge money maker they are going to be up against big business, factories have been opened, specialty bakeries, etc etc and of course all the other gluten-free product makers they will fight it all the way, mainly because Hollywood put us in the spotlight with all,these stars etc going on a Gluten Free "Diet" they should,check out the calories etc in our diets they don't have a clue. I sincerely hope, but I've had it too long since 1989, and it probably won't work for me, but I do hope that they are allowed to market this injection at the end of (if successful) trials because we deserve to have some kind of "normal" back in our lives. It is a terribly restrictive disease most people refer to it as an allergy 🤦🏼‍♀️ if only it was.🙏🏽

    What is Celiac Disease and the Gluten-Free Diet?

    Having had this disease since 1989 I have run the gamut on products and their tastes, as of today the best bread, bagels, muffins, cakes, pizzas, I get from UDI a lot of fast food restaurants etc here use their hamburger buns so I can have burgers, also their hot dog buns. Glutino has a bread called genius which is excellent. I eat a lot,of Mexican items too enchiladas with corn tortillas and the red sauce is fine, tacos are okay, no fried rice has veggie protein, Thai food has quite a lot of gluten-free ingredients. Watch for French fries in restaurants and fast food, a lot of the precut premade frozen fries are coated in beef broth to stop them from sticking together when deep frying and the broth has wheat in it, I learned hard way my grandson gave me some of his French fries from McDonalds a while,back and I got sick, I did research and McDonald's use this method also, and most of the preseasoned ff in restaurants they lightly toss in flour so when they fry them the seasoning stays on the ff. Hope this info is useful.

    Just a suggestion there is a company called Primal Kitchen I get from Vitacost or Amazon but Amazon bit higher price wise, it's almost everything free and I wonder how their mayonnaise tastes as good as it does, also the chipotle lime mayo is fantastic made with avocado oil give it a try.

    Is this oil found in certain ethnic foods. I use it here to cut back on the smoke cos you can heat it up to higher heat than other oils is this why you use it. I don't recall seeing it in everyday general gluten-free foods I am from UK go home every year and to be honest I much prefer the gluten-free products there you have more choices cos Celiac is more prevalent in the UK My doctor here gave me a powder for these same types of symptoms called "Questran" mix it with juice and drink before I eat and it handles your symptoms but not sure about rapeseed oil. Lot of UK products contain canola and corn oil so look for products that contain these oils and not rapeseed.

    Modified food starch is one of the main culprits it contains wheat and also vegetable protein, make sure you can tolerate gluten-free oats not all of us can, I am a high sensitive celiac and um unable to tolerate any kind of oats even the gluten-free. Had celiac since 1989 and it's really "trial and error" keep track of what and where you eat and you will soon find food and restaurants you can go to without getting sick.
