  1. I've made more gluten-free pie crusts than I can count. Seriously. Been playing with flours and ideas quite a bit, and what has held true for pie crust is that no gums or binders will yield the best crusts. Also, a wheat crust is formulated with a considerable amount of fat, because that is what...
  2. I also would recommend magnesium, especially the oxide form. Taken with orange or other citrus juice to magnify the effectiveness, magnesium can work where bulking laxatives don't. However, if your diet is lacking fiber, green veggies, fresh fruits, etc, then that would be the first thing to address...
  3. I don't trust Arrowhead Mills either. Got glutened by their flours, so that was it for me. I was looking for puffed millet and amaranth recently, and also didn't find any. For the puffed rice, suppose you take some rice cakes (Lundberg makes them gluten-free), and break them up? Either by hand...
  4. Whenever I've had bread fall after baking, it was due to too much liquid. I've also found that fats tend to make breads fall or not rise so well, thus I never use fats in breads. Fat tends to defeat the binders. This seems to be one reason why gluten-free bread recipes with fatty ingredients usually...
  5. Yeah, I know she isn't intolerant/Celiac (as far as she knows). However, seems to me many get a negative on tests, even though some antibodies are detected. So I wouldn't feel comfortable thinking that there are absolutely zero antibodies present. Plus I never say never, when gluten intolerance is...
  6. Though I haven't been looking for information on the subject, there have been many threads on this board about it. A search should turn them up. However, seems to me the consensus is that the gluten you ingest will effect the baby, not just via the milk, but right now, before birth. Again, I've...
  7. Yeah, I agree Wikipedia shouldn't be taken as the most authoritative source of information on any given topic. However, in this case, the Raynaud's article does track with what I've read elsewhere. And while not quite as comprehensive as the NIH article, does not appear to be inaccurate. So to...
  8. Magnesium and B vitamins (especially B12) have helped me quite a lot with cold extremities. Various other nutrients can help as well, such as zinc and omega-3s (flax/fish oil). Since going gluten-free and taking supplements, I don't even notice it anymore, and I'm not sure if it's still there at...
  9. I was recently getting glutened by something, which turned out to be the brown rice syrup from NOW Foods. It's labeled gluten-free, but I've read that some are actually made with barley enzymes. Apparently, the one from Lundberg is not made with barley enzymes, and oddly enough, I almost purchased...
  10. I would always get the red ears, especially as a child. Nearest I can tell, it's from gluten, as I no longer get that, or the red cheeks. AFAIK, the tests aren't as accurate as 95%. Some tests are better than others, but not that good. Perhaps he meant the genetic tests, but that doesn't confirm...
  11. I never even thought about oils being produced on shared equipment. Makes me shiver! I don't think I've ever gotten glutened by vegetable oil, but I guess I'll be wondering whenever I'm feeling a bit off. Anyway, one brand of safflower oil I know of (but never tried) is Flora. It's expensive....
  12. I've been off all nightshades for some time now, and haven't attempted to try any yet. Not sure if I will. I kinda like the ability to walk far more than the taste of any of them However, I do believe that with sufficient healing of the intestines, the toxic alkaloids wouldn't so easily get...
  13. Arrowhead Mills flours. It was definitely CC, and happened with more than one type from them.
  14. Yes. As was mentioned, vitamin B12, and other B vitamins can do wonders for sleep cycles, energy, etc. Magnesium is another that has helped me tremendously (actually more than I can put into words). Consider other intolerances and allergies too. Especially to the top allergens (soy, corn, dairy...
  15. Guar gum, gum Arabic (also referred to as acacia gum), and carob have nothing to do with soy. However, guar gum and carob are derived from leguminous trees, so some who can't tolerate legumes might not be able to tolerate them. Being that guar gum (a fiber) is fairly purified, I think the chances...
