  1. I haven't yet attempted a gluten-free pie crust, though I have made a sort of shortbread crust that managed to hold together. I've been using psyllium husk powder in my baking and pancakes rather than the guar gum I had been using, since I'm not using any starches. Guar gum makes some things like...
  2. I've been using Yerba Prima psyllium husks powder, here are details on their site, but I got it in the natural foods section of a grocery store: http://www.yerba.com/storefront/item.asp?id=57 It doesn't specifically say it's gluten-free but I've been fine with it, afaik.
  3. I'm on the other side of the state, in Spokane Valley. I recently discovered a Celiac / gluten intolerance group nearby on Meetup, but I haven't attended any of the monthly meetings yet, I have gotten a few emails. I hope to attend one sometime soon!

At least from what I've gathered in the couple of months I've been researching that topic. As for MSG, I've...
  7. I had a bad reaction to Pop Chips too, though I was very new to eating gluten-free at the time. I noticed they were very salty, so it may be the salt and the low iodine diet on thyca (for those of us with DH) says to avoid salty foods since they may use iodized salt. However, I think it's possible...
