Modified food starch should always be avoided. It may be wheat starch.
Natural flavours and Caramel Colour are doubtful - barley is used quite a lot as a flavouring and should be avoided

Re: UK Gluten Free Beer: from Philip Le Roux on 2008-07-16

So far the "Against the Grain" beer is the only gluten-free beer I have found that actually tastes like a beer. I do hope and pray they will after this cautious and successful testing of the market, bring out more GF beers into general circulation.

All the rest so far have been revoltingly sickly sweet. Like drinking rendered down treacle with an alcohol content off the scale, and to thoroughly add insult to injury extortionately priced .

My partner blinked when she saw me tip a pint of one of them away, asking "who are you and what have you done with my boyfriend" sort of thing.

Re UK Gluten Free Beer (Re - USA queries: from matt clark on 2008-07-31

Hi to the people asking about GF beer in the USA.

I was recently there visiting friends and found 3 beers (fairly) available.

One was out of stock in the (independent) shop i was in, but there was a great one called "Redbridge" - it's brewed by Anheuser Busch. Pretty damn tasty. This one was also available in Price Chopper.

There was another which I can't remember the name, it was a black label with a gold bat-like shape on it. I didn't like it as much, so thats probably why I don't remember the name. Go for Redbridge!

I was impressed by the availability and PRICE ($7.99 for 6 bottles) in the states (this was NY, upstate). I recommend try all your local liqour stores, you might be surprised what you find if you've not looked before.

A selection of beer is also available in Risottoria (including big bottles of Greens), a pizza place on Bleecker Street in NYC - yes the pizzas are also gluten free and awesome, and they also have pie, brownies, cake and bread sticks. Go. Now. (they have a website, i think...)

Good luck.


gluten free flours/chapattis: from fozi on 2008-09-06

I notice i can use a lot of different flour alternatives and there are many manufacturers. Just a couple of questions which i would appreciate advice with.

1) Do i need to be careful about brands of these flour and are some manufacturers more likely to be contamination free. I bought various flours to do baking and now am not sure re milling process/contamination. Is this really an issue with rice flour, millet flour etc or should they be ok. im particularly thinking about asian foods and even things like rice noodles produced by companies who also produce wheat noodles. If any one has trused brands i would appreciate your comments.

2) Being a new coeliac, with a south asian diet, im not sure what to make chapattis/roti with, i read e using millet , juwar flour, anyone with any good recipes please help! Thanks v much
