  1. I have just been diagnosed with celiacs and believe that I have had it for years but my doctors didn't catch it. Anyways around the time where my symptoms started getting worse which was 3 years ago I started getting migraines when I would eat chocolate. I am wondering if anyone else experienced this and if it got better once you went on a gluten free diet. I can easily try for myself but knowing how sick it made me last time I'm nervous to introduce it back into my diet. Thank you!
  2. Today I had the pleasure of trying out two new products from Three Bakers Gluten Free: Chocolate Chip Snackers and Honey Graham Snackers, and I'm very impressed by both. Just as the "Snackers" name implies, these new products make a perfect snack. The texture of Snackers is a bit like a cracker, bit their taste is more like a cookie. I really like the fact that the first ingredient is whole grain brown rice flour, which has more fiber and nutritional value than plain rice flour. The Honey Graham Snackers had an identical flavor to regular wheat graham crackers that I've missed so much. You can really tasted the honey graham flavor. The Chocolate Chip Snackers tasted remarkably like a great chocolate chip cookie, but again, these have the consistency of crackers, so you never get the feeling that they are too sweet or unhealthy. Overall I highly recommend these new treats to anyone, regardless of whether or not they avoid gluten, as they will be enjoyed by all. I will also be including them as a treat in my daughter's school lunches because she absolutely loves them! For more info visit their site.
  3. Yesterday my brother who is also celiac had a toblerone yesterday and says he got sick from it. I haven't had a problem with it before but i was wondering if any other sensitive celiacs have had a reaction to toblerone before?
  4. Celiac.com 06/23/2016 - This is a very versatile gluten-free recipe. This paleo and gluten-free brownie pie crust can be made into a crust or simply eaten as gluten-free cookies. It is also totally OK to consume it raw since it is made out of all vegan ingredients. Based on the feedback I've received, it tastes delicious when prepared raw. This crust/cookie recipe is a wonderful base to build upon. I create a lot of raw cheesecakes with the crust and any leftovers are made into little cookies for later. The chocolate flavor in this is quite light so it won't overpower the other flavors you may want to work in with it. The only piece of machinery required is a food processor and this healthy recipe comes together easily. Nuts are the real star of this recipe though. I purchase nuts in bulk since I use them for homemade nut milk as well as many baked items and as an on-the-go snack. Certain nuts offer a variety of health benefits you would have never even thought of. Almonds for example, which are used in this recipe, rank highest out of all tree nuts in protein, fiber, calcium and vitamin E. Enjoy! Ingredients: 2 cups almonds 1 cup pecans or walnuts 1 ½ cups dates, chopped â…” cup 100% cacao powder 2 teaspoons vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon salt 2-4 teaspoons water Directions: Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Place almonds in food processor and grind until somewhat fine. Add pecans or walnuts and grind until somewhat fine. Add the remaining ingredients excluding water. Pulse in the food processor. Add water until mixture isn't flaky, just until dough holds slightly together. Line a 9” spring form pan with waxed paper. Add dough mixture to the pan and spread over the top of the paper. If you are doing crust up the sides of the pan, you will need to line the sides of the pan as well. Press firmly. Bake for 15-17 minutes. OPTIONAL: do not bake if you are on a raw diet. Enjoy!
  5. GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP ONA COOKIES

    The first thing I noticed about Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Ona Cookies was their beautiful packaging. Ona cookies are "paleo friendly," which means they are made with high quality, nutritious ingredients such as almond and coconut flours, honey and shredded coconut. Coconut was the first thing I tasted when I bit into one, which was followed by an accent of cocoa from the cocoa nibs. Their taste made it obvious that these cookies are packed with fabulous ingredients that also happen to be very healthy, and they are perfect for those following a gluten-free and/or paleo diet. If you want a healthy cookie that won't leave you with regrets, be sure to try Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Ona Cookies. For more info visit: www.wbkitchen.com.
  6. Just when I thought that nothing in the gluten-free realm of products could surprise me anymore, I was lucky enough to get in the mail a frozen Inspired by Happiness Gluten-Free Dreamin’ of Chocolate Black & White Chocolate Layer Cake, which led to one of the most wonderful gluten-free experiences that I've had in a long time! From the moment I laid eyes on this cake I was impressed. So much so that I decided to serve it for dessert at a friend's dinner party—even though I had never before tasted it. In the gluten-free world this can be a risky proposition—especially when most of the guests attending were not on a gluten-free diet. When dessert was finally served my friend was surprised to see a piece in front of me, because he assumed that it wasn't gluten-free (again, it just looked too good!). After he found out that it was gluten-free he seemed let down...but after one bite it was clear that this cake was beyond good—it was simply astonishing! As you can tell by the picture, this is a very rich chocolate cake. There are generous amounts of white and dark chocolate throughout, and the cake is incredibly moist and held together perfectly. It also wasn't too sweet tasting, which made the white and dark chocolate flavors really stand out. After this experience it is clear to me that Inspired by Happiness cakes are perfect for any special occasion, including dinner parties, birthdays and weddings.

  7. There are good and bad versions of milk chocolate chip cookies...and then there are great versions like The Bakery Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies. I happen to love the soft and chewy-style chocolate chip cookies, and these cookies definitely fit that bill. They have a fresh-baked taste and feel, and the aroma that poured forth when I first opened the package was too good to put into words—their taste was simply outstanding. Each package contains 5 large cookies, and I'll bet you can't eat just one! The Bakery Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies are available in the bakery section of your local Walmart.

  8. If you enjoy rich, moist and super chocolaty brownies, then you are going to absolutely love The Bakery Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownies. It has been a long time since I've had brownies that taste this great. The Bakery Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownies are clearly made for the true chocolate brownie lover in you, and I am very impressed with the wonderful texture and flavors that come through in every bite. Another thing I like about these brownies is their size—they are about two large bites each, and 12 of them come in each box. If you have very strong self control you will only eat 2 or 3 of them...but if not...who knows? The Bakery Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownies are available in the bakery section of your local Walmart.

  9. It isn't often that I get really excited about a product that I try—but I am really excited about the LÄRABAR ÜBER Dark Chocolate Raspberry Gluten-Free Bar. When it comes to bars, most of them tend to be on the overwhelming side, and contain way too much of everything—too much sugar, chocolate or other flavors tend to overpower everything else. LÄRABAR's ÜBER Dark Chocolate Raspberry bar, however, was amazingly well-balanced, and had the perfect amount of everything. It had lots of almonds and cashews that were very fresh and bound together with a sweet, salty mixture of honey and raspberry flavors—then topped off with large chunks of unsweetened dark chocolate. The combination of flavors was just amazing. I am also fussy about the texture of any bars I try. This "crunchy nut bar" had a perfect balance—the nuts were not too hard because they were fresh, it was crunchy but not too crunchy, and it was slightly chewy—but not too chewy because it didn't stick to my teeth or feel like it was loaded with too much sugar. LÄRABAR bars are also non-GMO and kosher, which is an added bonus. I would highly recommend this excellent gluten-free snack bar to anyone. Review written by Scott Adams.
  10. Guthrie's Original Sin In A Tin Chocolate Pate Dessert is a wonderfully decadent treat that is perfect after any meal—it will make any occasion feel like a special one—including birthdays, holidays or any other day that you would like to make more memorable. The taste of this wonderfully chocolaty confection reminded me of my favorite flour-less chocolate cake, but it was even better because it was more creamy and less dense. This is the type of dessert you would typically associate with a fine dining establishment, after paying too much for a meal, but now you can have it at home—and just in time for Valentine's Day!

  11. http://www.sunfood.com/carob-powder-16oz-organic-truly-raw.html Sunfood has Certified Gluten Free Carob Powder. Their packaging is 6 years old, so it says otherwise. I called, they confirmed it is a certified (tested) gluten free and packaged in a gluten free facility. It has not given me a problem at all. I have been searching for something that is an alternative to chocolate, being I am allergic to caffeine. So here it is! Sunfood carob powder! It works as a 1:1 ratio replacing chocolate powder. I've made pudding, syrup, and it can go into cookies, muffins, cake mixes, etc.
  12. I am allergic to caffeine. I only have a few but they are clearly too irritating for me to consume caffeine and enjoy caffeine. The only ones that I don't experience are the flu like symptoms, the swollen eyes, my tongue doesn't swell and no cold sweats. The rest bugs me for the rest of the day, and the next morning I feel hung over! Big time hate caffeine. Found this out after quitting caffeine for months then sipped it daily and increased it. Symptoms increased and before long I hated what I was drinking. Here are all symptoms possible for people with caffeine allergy. Skin problems such as hives, eczema, rashes, acne, severe itching Headaches/ migraines Anxiety and panic attacks Can’t focus or concentrate Tongue, glands, or throat swelling Heart racing/ palpitations Angry, irritable, bad mood Fatigue Dizziness Extreme jitters Chest Pain Depression Numbness in face, hands, or feet Muscle pain Shortness of breath/ tightness of chest Delusions/ hallucinations Flu/ cold like symptoms Vision problems Cold sweats Eyes swollen shut So...now I want chocolate.....it's that time of the month again. But...the caffeine!!! lol Noooooo! So I'm looking for a certified gluten free carob instead. Or I'll have to encourage my liver to produce the caffeine enzymes that it isn't. There's a whole new study.
  13. Due to the zucchini, these aren't only healthier than your normal brownies, but also very moist. They are also really quick and easy to make. Absolutely love them, hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did. Ingredients Batter 1 cup peeled and shredded zucchini ¼ cup coconut oil 50 g milk chocolate 1 cup of gluten-free flour ¼ cup cocoa powder ¾ tablespoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon organic banana powder (optional) ¼ cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs 100 ml milk 100 g white chocolate chips Glaze 50 g white and 50 g milk chocolate 20 g coconut oil Instructions 1) Preheat oven to 180C or gas mark 5. 2) Peel and great the zucchini (don’t throw away the peel - you can use it as an additional ingredient in a stir-fry!). 3) Melt coconut oil and chocolate in the microwave or over a hot water bath. 4) In a separate bowl, sift flour, cacao powder and baking soda. Add salt, banana powder (optional), sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, coconut-chocolate mix and grated zucchini. 5) Combine all ingredients, add chocolate chips and mix together thoroughly. 6) Fill the batter onto a rectangular oven-proof baking dish lined with grease-proof baking paper. The size of your baking dish depends on how thick you want your brownies to be (the smaller your dish, the thicker your brownies). 7) Bake for 25 minutes. 8) Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Meanwhile, melt chocolate and coconut oil over a water bath or in the microwave and glaze the brownies (while still in the baking dish). Leave to cool and for the chocolate to set. Cut in squares. Enjoy!
  14. Celiac.com 07/18/2014 - It’s been hot lately, so I’ve been looking and lots and lots of tasty cool, and frozen things to make the summer just a bit more enjoyable.

  15. KidzShake was created by a physician and mother who wanted her children to have a beverage that does not contain sugar or artificial ingredients. KidzShake is made with a low glycemic protein blend and sweetened with stevia and xylitol, which makes it the perfect beverage for kids with blood sugar problems. This shake also contains a digestive blend and an enteric-coated probiotic blend – something you will not find in any other beverage for children on the market today. If you're looking for a shake that has vitamins, nutrients and other health benefits, KidzShake is worth trying. Visit their site for more info: www.kidzshake.com. Review written by Patricia Seeley.
  16. Great energy bars do not have to contain soy. If you're gluten-free and can't eat soy, you should try this new gluten-free energy bar made by Ebars. The main ingredients are almonds, honey, oats, flaxseed and pumpkin seed. The sweetness of the bars is provided by coconut sugar and raspberry, and the himalayan pink salt ensures the bars are not too sweet. I found that they satisfied my cravings for something chewy and delicious at the same time. In addition to being gluten and soy-free, they are also 100% USDA Certified Organic, Kosher, and Non-Dairy. For more information visit their site: www.ebars.com. Review written by Patricia Seeley.
  17. If you're a fan of old-fashioned desserts, you'll be excited to learn that The Piping Gourmets have brought back that iconic American dessert – the Whoopie Pie, and this one is gluten-free. The Chocolate Vanilla Gluten-Free Whoopie Pie has a firm outer sandwich that is filled with a delicious white creamy center. In addition to being gluten free, these whoopie pies are dairy-free and non-GMO. They will last up to 6 months in your freezer, and up to 7 days in your refrigerator. You'll feel like a kid again when you enjoy one of these all natural desserts. For more information, contact the www.thepipinggourmets.com. Review written by Patricia Seeley.
  18. All I had last night out of the normal was Malibu Rum and Dailey's Pina Colada mix. I am not sure if it is possible I had a reaction to this? I also ate cheesy potatoes (dairy really doesn't bother me), and some dark dove chocolates (which I eat under normal circumstances and have never had an issue). That's it.
  19. I tried DNA Life Bars' Chocolate Coconut Fudge gluten-free bar and found it to have a nice chocolate flavor, with a hint of coconut, and almost the same consistency as fudge. The best part about DNA Life Bars is how nutritious their bars are. They contain 14 grams of protein and 5.5 grams of fiber, yet contain only 26 grams of carbs and an ultra-low 2 grams of sugar! Besides being gluten-free they are also dairy, soy, corn and trans-fat free as well. To me this bar seemed more like a healthy meal substitute, rather than just a bar. For more info, visit their site. Review written by Scott Adams
  20. This list is for the US, it may differ in other countries, even Canada. It can't possibly include every candy being made, but it has a lot of them! http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/glutenfreefoodshopping/a/GFcandies.htm
  21. Sweet Baby Cakes has come up with some of the best gluten-free brownies we've ever tried. Their traditional Chocolate Fudge Brownie is a brownie lover's delight. Made from chocolate syrup, black bean flour and flax meal, this brownie tastes as good as it looks. The brownie is chewy and sweetened with agave, but it is not so sweet that you can't eat the whole brownie in one sitting! These brownies are also ready to eat from the freezer, which means you don't have to thaw or microwave them before eating. For more information, visit their website. Review written by Patricia Seeley.
  22. A coworker just returned from vacationing in Hawaii and brought back a box of Mauna Loa Milk Chocolate Mountains to share. Since I miss out on most of the other treats in the office, I was eager to find out if these are gluten-free. The woman I ended up talking to at Hershey customer service walked me through the process of verifying that they are. Just wanted to pass that on, since I didn't find any clear statement online. I only know for sure that this particular Mauna Loa product--the Mauna Loa Milk Chocolate Mountains--is gluten-free. I don't know either way on the others, though I suspect at least some are. The rest of the story (with information that should help with other unlisted Hershey products): [This is "old news" to some of you, but thought it might be helpful to others (and wanted to show my source).] Mauna Loa is a Hershey brand. In fact the Mauna Loa customer service number is the Hershey customer service number: 800-468-1714. As of today, none of the Mauna Loa products is on the Hershey gluten-free list (published elsewhere in these forums). As they say, not all of their gluten-free products are listed. The rep I spoke with told me that if an ingredient is sourced from a gluten-containing grain, according to Hershey policy, that grain will be listed with the ingredient. Also, if the production lines are subject to cross-contamination, the allergen will be listed--as tree nuts and peanuts are listed for this product. Since it is their policy to identify both gluten-containing grains and potential cross contamination and the ingredients for this product include neither, it's gluten-free. Score. Of course, it's got other stuff I probably shouldn't be eating, but just one or two shouldn't kill me.
  23. Hi, I had a bad accidental glutening incident recently. I purchased a box of chocolate in Poland which looked safe to eat. Stupidly, I assumed if there were gluten ingredients, that would be called out in the allergen warning. That turned out not to be the case, and I had a reaction. My typical symptoms are usually a kidney or bladder infection, depression, anxiety, memory problems, issues with focusing and concentration. All of which I have been experiencing since I ate the chocolate. I'm not sure which ingredient is the culprit, but I'm guessing that a cheap, not fully distilled alcohol was used. Normally, I have no problems with distilled grain alcohols. Just wanted to pass my experience along and hopefully save someone else from the same mistake. I've listed the ingredients below. -Marie Ingredients listed as follows: sugar, corn syrup, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, alcohol, stabilizer (invertase), emulsifiers (soy lecithin, polyglycerol, polyricinoleate, and sorbitan tristearate), artificial flavors. Allergen warning states that it contains soy, and may contain traces of egg or milk.
  24. Hi everyone, I have been gluten free for a little over a year now and have had a some difficulty adjusting to the new lifestyle. I have a major sweet tooth and it has been tough finding gluten free chocolate that I feel doesn't sacrifice the flavor I once used to enjoy. Up until recently I was about to give up on my search until I came across a company called Fudge Fatale at my local Whole Foods Market. Not only do they have gluten free chocolate sauce, they also have gluten free fudge bars, caramel sauce, and espresso sauce!!! They are also soy free which is a nice little bonus. It was such a delight to finally find dessert sauces that I feel have all the same delicious flavor and qualities of regular dessert sauces yet remain gluten free. I found their website and they also provide a nice variety of other gluten free product that I still have yet to try. I highly recommend trying out the Fudge Fatale line!!! You can find it at http://gmbfoods.com/products-page-2/fudge-fatale/. They weren't lying when they said it is the chocolate to die for!!!
  25. Well I already know that soy makes me sick. I have really been trying to talk myself into the fact that soy lecithin won't bother me. Wrong. Maybe I can get away with one Sees bordeaux. Although now I'm scared. But that's it. I got a box for Christmas. I apparently can't do 3 one day, and 2 the next day without paying the price for over 24 hours. It felt just like being glutened. Nausea, severe fatigue and muscle weakness. Will this ever go away? Will the soy intolerance go away? Soy is in flipping everything. I can't find a salad dressing that does not have soy in it. And now I'm supposed to give up See's bordeaux to this stupid disease? Ugh.
