gluten free flours/chapattis: from Stephanie on 2008-09-09

You should try the chia seed flour from nuchiafoods.com. It is certified gluten-free and is made in a facility that only produces gluten-free products. You can order online for only $6.89 for a 22oz bag. It can replace traditional wheat flour 1:1. Good luck

gluten free bread: from Noel on 2008-09-29

I read your e-mail about the gluten free breads not tasting like the breads you were used to. I am on a gluten free diet and have been for many years. I know what you mean about the difference in the taste. The best bread that I have found is Sami's bakery millet and flax seed bread. They also make wraps, hamburger buns, hot dog buns, and pizza crust. Hopefully that will help if you have not already tried it yet.


Gluten Free Fish and Chips: from Ian Mead on 2008-10-16


I have recently returned from a few days in Dorset and would strongly recommend Alf's Fish & Chip shop at 2 Lynch Road Weymouth 01305 783342 where I had cod and chips cooked in the chip oil, so no possibility of contamination. Absolutely marvellous. Mostly take-away but Alf has two tables for anyone eating in the shop

Hello, I'm going to start feeding my baby solids when he turns 6 month. I've found Gluten free Rice Cereal but I was told to alternate rice cereal and oatmeal. Does anyone know of a gluten free infant oatmeal? Also, baby food jars?? I would like to have him gluten free

You can buy it at many regular liqour stores in the US ask for Redbridge which is actually made by Budweiser and even if they do not carry it in stock they can often order it for you

Re UK Gluten Free Beer: from Chris Atkinson on 2009-02-05

Just in case any one is interested in having a bash at brewing their own beer,

I've tried half a batch of the 'Four Star' and 'Red Diesel' which are both gluten free beer recipes, and have been impressed.

I've PM'd the person who has put together the recipes, and he's had many attempts to pull together these recipes (being a coeliac himself).

Latest attempt is a brew of stout so I'll find out what that's like in a few days/weeks, buts it's certainly been fermenting well.

Don't be put off by the list of ingredients (tea bags, chocolate essence, bovril !!), it works, and I'm hooked...

Also, in response to a quiry earlier in this post, you can buy GFA from hambletons direct. Last lot I purchased just before Xmas 08 was £1.60 a botle, although they were predicting a price rise. Wirth buying in bulk at this price if you like it (the new recipe is much nicer that the last one).

For info, the ale recipes work out at around £15.00 for 20 litres (so around 75p a pint

Re: Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from Dr. Trina Doerfler on 2009-03-23

Any allergen can produce excess fluid in the inner ear, which is where balance operates from..I commonly see balance problems with allergic exposures, whatever the allergen. The body produces the fluid as a protective mechanism, which then causes the balance issues....going gluten free should help, but also perhaps seek out someone that does a preocedure called an endonasal, where the practitioner tugs on the inside of the throat where the eustachian tube exits. This can drain the fluid into the throat and resolve he issue. Good luck
