Re: UK Gluten Free Beer: from Ben Cowell on 2007-04-26


At the very last moment after 6 months (and three years of planning) our brewing partners who have been finding reasons for not signing their side of the contract have after providing many reasons, replied with the following:

‘(we) don't have capability for commercial production of Gluten Free Beer’

So there you have it! It will now not hit the shelves this summer and I'm gutted, but we are in discussions with other brewers and we will launch as soon as we can, I promise you. I'll update all those people who have signed up from our site. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it was 'out of our hands', that decision!

Re: Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from michelle edwards on 2007-04-30

I,m looking for some help! Last year I had a private intolerance test done as a result of this I was told that I had a wheat and and dairy intolerance as well as others but wheat and dairy were the highest. How can I get my gp to acknowledge it and get blood tests done to prove it?

Re: Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from Peter on 2007-04-30

This depends a lot on the laboratory that did the tests, and how they were done.

If you went privately to a doctor who carried out the accepted tests and these were positive, then your GP would accept the results.
If your doctor is saying that the tests were not an accepted method, or it was not a reputable laboratory, then you would need to ask your doctor for the correct tests to be done.

If you are already on a gluten-free diet then the existing tests wont' work. You would need to go back to eating gluten in your diet for several months before the tests would be conclusive.

It is always best to get tests done with your GPs supervision before you start a gluten-free diet.

The blood tests cannot prove many borderline cases. They are subject to interpretation. Your doctor would need to assess the situation on the basis of your overall health, and any changes to your health with changes to your diet.

Re: gluten free chappatti flour: from alina sheikh on 2007-05-09


Buckwheat flour is part of the rhubard family and has no no natural wheat, but in process can be contaminated, therefore you need to buy gluten free buckwheat flour. Mix buckwheat flour with gluten free white flour and mix with milk, but leave it quite thick. it should taste alot like chapatti.
