  1. I would definitely seek further testing. From what I've read, celiac disease is often overlooked and miss-diagnosed (specifically, false negatives). Regardless of the outcome, you'll know you covered all your bases.
  2. Sorry to hear that you felt so sick. I'd have to think that it was indeed the fish food that ultimately affected you. I say this because my daughter and I (both Celiac) have eaten M&M Peanuts (btw, we live in Canada) many times without issue. Obviously, there could always be the chance that the M&Ms were CC'd BUT based on what I've observed and experienced, chances are it was the fish food. Hope you feel better soon!
  3. Thank you for the link. I couldn't find anything about artificial flavoring though. Could artificial flavoring be derived from wheat, barley, rye or any other natural product?
  4. Hi everyone. I've read that artificial flavors cannot contain gluten. Does anyone know if that's a fact? I'm asking because my mother in-law called a candy manufacturer today(I believe it was Hershey's here in Canada) and they couldn't guarantee that those types of Kisses she was calling about contained gluten because they contain "artificial flavors". I'm asking here because as we know, sometimes those company reps are not up to date and the most knowledgeable when it comes to gluten. Any info regarding this is greatly appreciated!
  5. Not sure if this applies to your daughter but my daughter reacts after she's gone to sleep -wakes up in intense pain+vomiting.. So, if I suspect she may have been exposed to gluten ( i.e.at school) I would keep her up as late as possible to have the reaction occur while she's awake. It seems to lessen the intensity. For some reason, it's more severe if it takes place while she's sleeping. Besides keeping her up late, lots of water. That's what we do. Hope this helps!
  6. Thanks for the reply! I thought it would be gluten free but figured it'd be best to double check here. Lemon Jello Cheesecake sounds tasty!
  7. I haven't found anything definitive on this so I'm hoping someone could help me with this. Not sure if it makes a difference when it comes to the ingredients, but I live in Canada (Toronto). TIA
  8. Thanks! And no, it doesn't have to necessarily be labelled gluten-free. I'll check the Kisses here. I think it's time we take a drive down to the US. Although we (in Canada) have good options when it comes to gluten-free packaged food, it seems the US has just that much more that it'll feel like we have a whole bunch of new food options....especially during events like Halloween.
  9. I think I will do that next year (order candy from the US). My daughter hasn't had Smarties since she was diagnosed with Celiac and the ones here (Canada) contain wheat so buying candy from a US store is what we'll do next Halloween. In the meantime, I'm trying to find treats that although don't actually have "gluten free" on the package, ingredients do not list any gluten containing items. So, are Reese peanut butter cups ok for someone with celiac? What about Aero chocolate bars? Or Oh Henry bars? If anyone has tried these, I'd love to hear if they're safe. Thanks.
  10. I wish there were comprehensive lists for candies sold in Canada. Every list I come across is US based. Also, apparently, not all similar candies contain the same ingredients. i.e.Smarties in Canada contain gluten, those in the US do not. No idea why
  11. Here are the ingredients for the Sundae (and Lingonberry sauce). They also look safe wrt being gluten free.
  12. Thank you. Here is what I found (from Ikea Canada). The frozen yogurt alone (without cone) seems to be fine, correct?
  13. Does anyone know if the soft serve frozen yogurt at Ikea (if it matters, I live in Toronto, Canada) is celiac safe to eat? I assume it would be, but not sure.
