Maria (my daughters name),

I also have wheat/gluten intolerances. I use to have serious problems during PMS. I would have a lot of pain near my gallbladderstomach area.€ Now, I don't have that problem anymore, when I stopped eating wheat. Tried to link wheat intolerances to female problems but I didn't see anything that linked

Re gluten-free teething cookies: from amy on 2009-07-22

i'm having a difficult time. my sister's children ate those store bought rice bars (gluten, wheat, barley free)from whole foods. Now they are terrible eaters. those bars are loaded w/sugar. i guess i'll go with the mesh bag and fruit, but was hoping to find a buscuit my 10 mo old could eat on her own. i'm considering trying to make something myself w/ the gluten free bread tht my sis buys at whole foods. i'm just nervous about it being a choking hazard. i have given my daughter plain puffed rice in place of cheerios, but she has gagged many time s on it and now just plays with it. bananas are a safer finger food. just very messy

Does whey have gluten in it: from Ann McReynolds on 2009-08-08

If a product that actually has no gluten is made in a kitchen where breads, cakes etc have been made, it cannot be advertized as gluten free.

I was told to never use a bowl if flour had even once been in the bowl, as you cannot get rid of the residue.

I am supposed to use my own plate, silverware so they cannot be contaminated
