  1. Hello, has anybody any suggestions for gluten free options at LAX airport, specifically terminals 2 and Tom Bradley International? I saw there's a Built Burger. Has anyone been there? Thank you!
  2. Just warning you all that Cheezels are not longer gluten free by ingredient. My daughter has eaten them for years with no problem as they were gluten free by ingredient. They did have a may contain statement but we often buy products with a may contain and have had no negative reactions whatsoever...
  3. That's quite strange. If it had gluten in it you would think they would have it in the contains statement. I will go an have a look today when I am at the supermarket. Maybe the breadcrumbs were made of soy if that is what it had in brackets. Legally if a product contains an allergy causing ingredient...
  4. Why would you need gluten free hairspray? Firstly I would be surprised if hairspray had wheat in it and secondly unless you ingest gluten it cannot have any effect on you. Shampoo, moisturisers, makeup etc. does not absorb into your intestine through your skin and therefore is safe to use. You...
  5. Hi, apparently the gluten free weetbix will be in store this week in Coles and Woolworths. Check out their facebook page for more info.
  6. I think many people would thank you for your contribution to the education of chefs on the islands. Education is definitely the key in improving awareness. When our daughter was diagnosed celiac 15 years ago we could quite easily get gluten free foods but awareness was hit and miss. There weren...
  7. Thanks for your reply Ken and apologies for the late reply. Thanks for all your helpful suggestions. I have done some research myself and found a few places in Waikiki that we can eat at some of which have a gluten free menu. I like the look of DK Steakkhouse which has a gluten free menu. One...
  8. Hello, We are thinking about visiting Hawaii later on this year from Australia. Our 17 daughter is celiac and was wondering if anybody has any suggestions re. eating gluten free around Waikiki and Oahu in general. We have been to the US before (Disneyland, New York) and managed okay by doing...
  9. Thanks Ken. It's great to hear that Hawaii is improving in awareness. We might not get there next year as we had our big trip this year and it can get costly but we definately plan on going sometime soon. The 12 hour flight is not too bad either. If you do come to Australia I can give you advice...
  10. For those who live in Melbourne (particularly in the south eastern suburbs) there is a great gluten free bakery in Moorabbin called Glutenfree4you. They have the usual breads, pies, sausage rolls, cakes etc. PLUS gluten free donuts, jam donuts, canoli and other amazing gluten free goodies. My daughter...
  11. Many companies don't list gluten free products as much anymore as the labelling laws mean that you don't really need to refer to them. I am not sure if you are in NZ or Aus. but I assume the laws are the same in that any allergy causing ingredient must be listed on the label whichs makes determining...
  12. Hi, If you grab a menu from Nando's it lists which products contain gluten and which don't. Most of the chicken is gluten free and I think they have changed the chicken salt recently and now it is gluten free. My daughter has been eating Nando's for years with no problem. The spicy rice is...
  13. Hi, I am from Melbourne so I can't really speak for Perth but I would think you should be able to get whole nuts and grains. I know that here in Melbourne there are places where you can get those things. I am not sure about Perth though. I would suggest that when you come to Australia that...
  14. Hi Ken, It was the Swissotel and the restaurant was Kopitiam. They did try hard to please and the chef came to our table to talk to us. He did not have much knowledge of gluten free food though but was happy for me to discuss it with him and for him to show us the sauces he was using. There...
