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: Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from Karen Johnston on 2009-02-23

My sister has had ulcerative colitis for about 4 years now. She sticks to a gluten free diet but finds that potato starch is a real problem, including the potatoes. Dairy and chocolate seem to agrivate it too. My brother had it for not quite a couple of years before the steroids almost killed him. He lost his colon and we almost lost him. He, however, didn't want to listen to her about going gluten free and paid the ultimum price. She suffered a couple of hospital stays and bloated up like a balloon from those disgusting steroids. They are poison. They may serve their purpose temporarily but her face was blistered and swollen. She now keeps in under control. Sometimes she goes a bit astray and pays the price. It shows up in her face first. See how you go when you eat potatoes and check all ingredients when buying your groceries. I have a intolerance to rice which gives me dermititis on my face, similar to hers from potato and wheat. I too can't eat wheat as it causes great cramps but I don't have coeliacs or ulerative colitis thank god. Hope this helps

What you can eat on a gluten-free diet: from Misslizzy on 2009-02-27

I eat Quinoa (pronounced keenwa) for breakfast. It is really nutritious and keeps hunger under wraps until lunch time. It's gluten free, obviously and for a seed is really high in protein (and amino acids) and calcium. You cook it with water and can eat it plain of with fresh fruit pieces or berries. Have tried rice-based porridge with nuts and raisins but I was hungry after 1 hour. We boil our pot of quinoa on a low heat every morning while we're getting dressed. You can have it instead of rice or potatoes with your dinner too. I eat it plain with poached eggs and bacon at the weekend too. I thought I would never be able to enjoy a cooked breakfast like that again but the quinoa has soakage even though it's not sticky. Hope this helps someone

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

Re Fish and Chips gluten-free: from Pam Johnson on 2009-03-24

We are a cozy fish and chip shop in British Columbia, Canada called: Cozy Bay Seafood Cafe. I am the chef/owner and have been serving gluten-free fish and chips for about 7 years now. Even when we are at our busiest time, I am able to cook gluten-free *allergy meals for customers. It's tricky, but I can do it and have never had people say they've had any reaction, in fact we have lots of regulars as well that are not gluten-free intolerant and they order it as well. (gluten-free non allergy). I serve it in both cod and halibut and I also have a variety of bite-size pieces called "Sunken Treasures" which includes: sole, snapper, salmon, cod and halibut. Our servers are all trained to ask if it is an allergy or not because of special handling in the kitchen. If anyone is so inclined, they should check us out. So far, gluten free *allergy is still a specialty for people. I can't tell you how thrilled some people are to have discovered us. If we weren't so well known with our beer batter and other breaded fish and chips, I'd of started up a gluten free only fish and chips and seafood house... In the meantime, I'm just happy to make other people happy being able to enjoy fish and chips beer battered, breaded, or gluten-free
