Re Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from Caty on 2005-07-29

My daughter was diagnosed with PCOS some time ago but just got diagnosed also with IBS. I am desperately trying to track down any connection and find out how to help her manage both conditions. Would you share any information you've found, having suffered from both also?

So many thanks.


Re Obscure Foods not Gluten Free: from Gavin Brooking on 2005-09-24

can you tell me if malt vinegar has gluten in it?
is distilled malt vinegar OK to use in recipies if I wish to show a gluten free stamp on a mustard and chutney that I am making to sell at a farmers market.
Are there any other products that might go into Jam, Chutney, mustard and home cooked crisps that could be intolerant for indiviuals who require a gluten free diet

Re Obscure Foods not Gluten Free: from Peter on 2005-09-24

Malt vinegar does have traces of gluten in it.
Although a distilled malt vinegar should be gluten-free, you would do better to use cider or wine vinegars as some of your customers would not touch a product with malt on the label.

plain vegetables pickled in vinegar are gluten-free as would be jam made with just fruit and sugar, mustard made with whole grain mustard and vinegar and oil, potato cooked in oil.

note that many commercial products of chutneys and mustards are not gluten free as they contain starch as a thickener and filler.

Hello to you all. There is another that is brewed in the UK. This is Nick Stafford's Hambledon Ales. I prefer it to Greens as it is a lower gravity (4.2\%) and bigger 500ml bottles.

Anyone out there know where I can buy Gluten-free Suet please?

Best wishes.

A traditional butcher who handles the complete meat carcass will be cutting off the suet and disposing of it.

I buy a large lump, cut it into cubes and then freeze it until required ( not too long)

Will someone please please tell me where I can buy GF beer in the USA. I'm going nuts trying to find it since I became a Celiac freak.

Does anyone know where I can find a list, (or if you know any in specifis) that can tell me the vitamins that I can or cannot take due to gluten intolerance?

Hambleton Ales also brew a glutin free beer (they are in North Yorkshire) and they have a web site with shops who sell their products these includes some Asda and Tescos.
