  1. Does anyone know if this is gluten-free? I have used it a few times, and each time I've become very sick (think: bathroom!). I can't find any information on the ingredients *anywhere*! If anyone could help me, I'd be very grateful! Thanks! - Michelle
  2. gliX, Wow, how do you know? I so want to believe you! I've got a dairy allergy to go along with the celiac disease and I *love* slurpees Thanks for you info!! - Michelle
  3. Ya, that's weird. I'd never heard of Splenda containing gluten! Hmm... I imagine it is on the list because it "can't be verified" (?) Who knows! This site does say that it "errs on the side of caution" for those who are ultra-sensitive to gluten. I like that. I don't have such easily discernable symptoms when I get glutened - so I would like to be ultra-safe - Michelle
  4. I'm banning Tropicana on principle! They can take their Pure Premium and stick it!
  5. Just wanted to clarify that you are talking about the Minute Maid (from the Coca Cola company) being safe - *not* the Tropicana - Michelle
  6. Carrie - Wow, I so know what you mean when you say you are getting tired of dairy & gluten in everything! I've also got the egg & sesame allergies so finding safe stuff is not easy for me at all It sucks! I was drinking their new "Light & Healthy" (Healthy.. ya right! NOT! ) that has 1/2 the calories & sugar. I think I probably cried every day that I drank it - and now I know where I was getting the gluten Anyway - for a safe brand - see my previous post about Minute Maid. I have never had a problem with that and I copied their reply that I received fr
  7. Here is the reply I got on Minute Maid, when I inquired about their juices: Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company, parent Company of Minute Maid. We are able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola classic, Coca-Cola C2, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lemon, Diet Coke with Lime, caffeine free Diet Coke, Sprite, Sprite ReMix Berryclear, Diet Sprite Zero, vanilla Coke, diet vanilla Coke, cherry Coke, Fresca, and our 100% juice products (without added ingredients) are gluten free. Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's definit
  8. Here is my reply from Tropicana: Hello Michelle: Thank you for contacting us about Tropicana products. We recognize that it is important to provide consumers with information so that they can make informed choices about the products they purchase. We are currently in the process of evaluating all of our products for the presence of the top eight allergens. At this time, we can not recommend products that list natural flavors or any other additives in the ingredient listing for people who are gluten intolerant. Tropicana Pure Premium juices are the only juices that do
  9. Classico Alfredo Sauce is in mainstream stores. I don't know if the progresso soup you are talking about is gluten-free, but here is their website if you want to inquire: http://www.bettycrocker.com/products/prod_progresso.asp - Michelle
  10. Where are you located? I just went to a GIG meeting tonight where they talked about Progresso Cream of Mushroom Soup. From what they said, it is not generally stocked west of the Mississippi (or something like that!). One of the guys from the SLC GIG has talked to a manager at a local grocery store (Albertsons) who is going to order it for him - unfortunately they need to order something like 70 cases! Sheesh! Anyway, if you happen to be located in Utah, let me know and I will give you his contact info. He's looking for people who want to buy a lot of it! For another idea - I saw
  11. YES! Ginger is pretty amazing stuff! But you have to get quality ginger or else it doesn't do much. I've had great results with New Chapter ginger supplements - particularly the Gingiforce Ginger Extract. It's been enormously helpful for me with gas & those other fun things. If I have it - I always be sure to take it if I'll be eating beans! The gingiforce stuff is pricey though - if you get it, be sure to buy it online or on sale. I buy my vitamins from webvitamins.com or vitacost.com or smartbomb.com - depending on who has the best price I love vitamins but they aren't che
  12. Because so many people are having trouble with nausea and dramamine worked so well for me in the past when I had trouble (because of cysts rupturing & other fun stuff) I wrote to them to find out if it's gluten free. Here's their response: (Warning: It isn't pretty!) Dear Michelle: Thank you for your interest in Dramamine. We do not specifically test for the presence of gluten in our products. Therefore, we cannot certify them to be gluten free. While I can tell you that there are no gluten-containing grains in this product, I cannot guarantee that cross-contamin
  13. Hey, please don't think I'm passing judgement on anyone who eats meat! I'm just wondering about this! I haven't even started the gluten-free diet yet so I'm dwelling in the realm of possibilities here I just want to hear about your experiences! I honor and respect all of you, whether or not you eat meat! *hug* - Michelle Thanks to everyone who's posted so far
  14. Hello there. I'm Michelle and I've been a long time student of health/diet/etc. I recently read a book called "The China Study" and it has really rocked my world. It is based on one of the most comprehensive health/disease/diet studies ever done. It was started in 1983 and is actually still going on. This is the real deal too, done by *real* researchers - with 28 pages in the back of the book of peer reviewed journals documenting the studies and everything included in the book. It's basis is to move toward a plant based diet and significantly reduce risks for: cancer, heart disease, obes
