Re gluten free chappatti flour: from edie on 2006-11-27

pelase can you tell which is wheat free so i can make some chappatis and a flour for making sponge cakes thanks edie

Re gluten free chappatti flour: from Peter on 2006-11-27

Note that flour sold as chapati flour or chappatti flour is a fine wheat flour.
It is not gluten-free.

Use a mix of gram flour, rice flour and maize flour instead.

new to gluten free: from hazel on 2006-12-13

As I am new to gluten and wheat free eating and cooking would you say that supermarkets or individual health food stores are best to shop in for clear labelled products. Thanks

Re: Obscure Foods not Gluten Free: from Peter on 2006-12-13

I think that where products are available in the big supermarkets you get the better labeling, and often better prices, but you may find an assistant in the health food shops who is knowledgeable and can help you.

Re: gluten free vitamins,herbs, supple: from Marty Hemmann on 2007-01-01

Did you get information on cellulose in vitamins, etc?

I want to takethe Country Life vitamins, but it lists cellulose, with no more detail as to type.

I am just now learning about being "gluten free" and any information would be appreciated.

Food grade cellulose is made from a wide variety of plant material, but mostly from wood pulp.
Some companies do provide information on the source of the cellulose used in their products, but often no information is given.

There is no risk of gluten in cellulose from wood pulp, seaweed, or fungal culture.
