  1. Just went to Aldi's they have gluten free frozen food now!
  2. Having given up all cereals at the time of going gluten free I was tempted back to the 'dark side' by Nestle. Their 'Go Free' range are delicious, excellent corn flakes and very good rice crispies (sorry Kelloggs, 'Pops' then) if I feel like a nostalgic return to childhood. One thing I like about them is the box size, design etc is very much akin to the 'normal' products which now reside in the Supermarket area I like to call 'Mordor' - the forbidden lands I used to roam, but where evil lurks behind every pack or tin can... Instead of being from some niche form of supplier with niche labelling, niche packet size all of which scream 'NICHE' this is a pack very much like the Orcs eat Last time I went shopping I picked up my corn flakes without much thought and it was only later when I was looking in the cupboard that I spotted the fearsome Dark Lord of the Sith Wannabe 'Kylo Ren' glowering at me. It surprised me. Not because I was clearly a very bad Jedi knight, failing to sense the presence of a dark side user under my nose (although this is undoubtedly true) but because this was the first time I could recall a genuine bona fide movie promo appearing on a gluten free product.... Check it out for yourself: https://www.nestle-cereals.com/uk/en/starwars Now many will think this is not the most important thing I could've written about and you're correct, but I found myself very happy to see this and not just because it's Star Wars... It's because I thought of all those coeliac or gluten sensitive kids across the country who have to eat all their meals from niche packaging and never get to participate in one of those silly but fun childhood rituals of opening a pack, collecting codes or coupons, 'winning' a promotional plastic cup or toy robot. Now I know this is marketing, that the execs who came up with the promos don't give a toss etc. But for once this is some advertising that I actually like seeing. I like the thought of kids choosing whether they get a Kylo or Rey pack or even kicking off if some hapless parent gets the wrong one So well done fearsome Disney marketing team and the somewhat checkered multi-national conglomerate Nestle for including these 'niche' consumers in your latest drive to cover the world in Star Wars logos, Yay, even beyond the very aisles of Mordor itself. May the force be with you.
  3. I just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping! Zeer.com (www.zeer.com) is an easy-to-use Web site that offers a service, called Zeer Select, to those on a gluten-free diet. Zeer Select is a database of over 30,000 mainstream products, each with its own gluten-free safety status. I’m talking about easy-to-find items that you can locate in a “regular” grocery store. I was able to simply search for the gluten-free status of a product by category, product name, or UPC code. If I searched for products which turned out not to be gluten-free it would recommend a similar product that was gluten-free. One of my favorite features of Zeer.com was how each product was assigned a gluten-free safety status and symbol. The safety levels are based on the ingredients as well as the manufacturers’ statements. Not only are the products assigned their own gluten-free safety status, but the questionable or “not safe” ingredients are highlighted with links that further explain why particular ingredients are not considered gluten-free. Each item also included detailed product information, including its ingredients and nutritional facts (and not just its gluten-free status). This is another great feature for those who are watching things like their sodium or carbohydrate intake, or those who might be looking for food items with extra fiber. On top of all this, Zeer.com includes the manufacturer contact information in case you have any questions or concerns and need to speak directly to the company about the product. They are also continuously updating their site by adding or updating around 500 new products each week, and I appreciated that they list the date on which each product was last updated¬, knowing this really built up my confidence in this web site. Whether you are new to a gluten-free diet or feel like your options are limited, I would highly recommend Zeer.com to help you prepare your next gluten-free shopping list!
  4. My girlfriend got me a membership to Costco today because the gluten free food she heard about there. I love the Sabatasso's Pizza in the 3 pack. It's certified by the CSA which tests for under 5ppm. They had a ton and I mean a ton of other stuff marked as gluten free but we all know that really doesn't mean too much sometimes. These stores are all over the country so I'm going to ask everyone at there, What are the best, safe, gluten free foods to get at Costco's?
  5. My gluten problem is on the extreme side, so much that I wince at shaking a stranger's hand or using a public pen. I'm just curious if anyone has had issues with walking past the Bakery corner while shopping for groceries. One of my stores has all the fruit and veggies right next to the bakery, so I have to rinse the food 'just in case'. Some days I think just smelling the cookies and donuts gets my symptoms flaring. I've learned to shop after they close the kitchen down but some days I have to go before 5pm and that is when I seem to be randomly glutened. If anyone else out there feels like a constant victim, you are not alone. I wish it was as easy as reading labels for me but hugging my friends can get me sick When I go out in public I touch nothing unless I have to buy it, and then when I get home I change clothes. We all have to be extra careful so I just want to send a virtual hug to everyone, especially if they are feeling like their house is the only safe place left.
  6. Hello, all. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a couple of days ago after an upper GI endoscopy. My husband and I have bought a few gluten-free products to get me started, but I'm concerned about the manufacturing and cross contamination. Can I eat a product if the label says "gluten-free" and none of the ingredients contain gluten or do I have to go as far as research the manufacturing process? If a label doesn't include information about manufacturing, is it safe? If the label states the product was produced in a facility that also process wheat-containing products, is it automatically out for me, or is that a CYA statement? I'm wondering if I should stick with products that have various gluten-free "seals of approval" such as those from Celiac organizations. Sorry for so many questions in one post. I am very concerned for my health and want to do everything right. Thanks!!
  7. I just downloaded ShopWell on my phone which scans bar codes and will warn you about potential wheat or gluten (after creating a profile with wheat and gluten listed as allergies). I tested it out around the kitchen and so far so good!
  8. I have just returned to the UK from a 2 week stay in Italy. Before travelling, I had read that Italy is a great place for gluten free food, and I was disappointed. Compared to the British, it is more common for Italians to know what Gluten-free (sanza-Glutin) is a real issue. Not a single Italian waiter or shop assistant was unfamiliar with the term. That was the good news. 1. Stalls regularly refused to serve me ice cream. Apparently, only their sorbets are gluten free. Back home, I attribute these kinds of statements as a confusion about whether gluten is in milk or wheat, but in a hot country where everyone is supposed to understand the meaning of "sanza-Glutin", I was very disappointed. Perhaps Italian ice creams all contain wheat? (P.S. I also could not find any soy-based ice creams in Italy) 2. Gluten-free breads are more commonly sold in their pharmacies (Farmacy) than in regular shops. Sadly, this regulated environment has significantly reduced market competition, resulting in very expensive readily-available food that is truly revolting. I brought one packet of Italian bread home with me, and it is inferior to UK supermarket own-brands (and in the UK it is cheaper too). 3. Before starting my trip, I marked on a map a list of Internet-recommended Italian restaurants for gluten free food. Each of those that I visited, had closed its doors, seemingly bankrupt. The best food I found in Italy was grilled fish (simple, without a recipe) or meals at the Marriott. For the most part, the gluten free options in restaurants were nasty. However, my partner who is not gluten intolerant, assures me that their food was equally disgusting. When I was young, the UK was the butt of food jokes. My experience suggests Italy is now the place to avoid.
  9. I live about 3 hours north of Chicago and intend to go grocery shopping in the near future. I live in a small community by comparison and I figured with Chicago so large that my options for shopping gluten-free products would be a lot better there. What stores in Chicago are well known for having good buys for gluten-free products? I plan on making a trip to Chicago every couple of months to stock up. We are also interested in going to an entirely gluten-free restaurant/cafe/bakery etc while visiting, any "must haves" that people would recommend? I was recently diagnosed with Celiac, so any help would be greatly appreciated :-)
  10. I'm wondering if anyone maintains a list of safe foods and where they can be found? I can do web searches but then find products that are not available locally. Lots of items can be ordered online but then comparing costs gets complicated. If this isn't a resource currently available, how could it be suggested to a reputable celiac organization? I don't think it would require lots of research, the community can contribute. I find myself getting confused because there isn't a way to see products like this: Manufacturer, Item, Retailer, Cost comparison by appropriate size or weight w/ shipping and tax. I have to keep costs down. So with my bad eyesight, I search with one window open to find if there is a gluten free product, another for the manufacturers information, cost and ordering information, and several more to comparison shop. Then I have a window to find if it's available at the local store. Oh yes, and I have to have the calculator open at all times along with notepad so my brain can keep track but that doesn't account for shipping and tax variations. To quote Charlie Brown... "Aaarrgghh!"
  11. Hey all, i was just diagnosed with celiac and was looking at candy and some other foods that contain wheat and or they are processed on things that contain wheat. Such as m&ms they have a pretzel m&ms, have twix and kit kat bars they all contain wheat but they don't say they have wheat in them or that they were processed on the same machines or in the same facility as a facility that processes wheat but they do say contain peanuts or may contain peanuts Why do candies and other things not have to say contain wheat or may contain wheat? What should I do? I've been staying away from the things that don't have a warning but since not all gluten free items say gluten free then I just read then carefully. Please help me!
  12. Celiac.com 11/19/2008 - In a development that could benefit people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, a team of researchers based in Spain and the U.K. has developed a faster, easier way to test food products for the protein that triggers the adverse reactions associated with celiac disease. Such a rapid gluten detection test for food products could help millions of people avoid the indigestion, diarrhea, bloating, and other symptoms that arise when they accidentally consume foods that contain gluten. The research team was made up of Alex Fragoso, Ciara O'Sullivan and other colleagues, and their results will appear in the December 15 issue of the journal Analytical Chemistry. Their development centers on the creation of a new sensor that detects antibodies to the protein gliadin, a component of the gluten found in wheat, rye, and barley. Laboratory tests showed that the new sensor is both highly accurate and far faster than the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), which is the current standard test for gliadin. The new test can detect gliadin in amounts as small as the parts per billion range, while an ELISA test requires a full 8 hours to do the same thing. Avoiding gluten enables people with celiac disease to avoid symptoms commonly associated with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. However, since gluten can hide in so many seemingly safe foods, such as soy sauce, canned soups, and licorice candy, it can be difficult to know for certain whether foods are in fact free of gluten free. A number of prepared foods clearly list gluten ingredients on their labels, but spotting its presence can be challenging at best, and is often outright hit or miss. A rapid, highly accurate test that can reliably spot gluten in food products promises to make it easier for manufacturers to label their products, and for people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance to avoid gluten and thereby enjoy better health.
