Why cookies?

A much better alternative is a finger sized lump of carrot - not so thin that bits will break off.

Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from on 2004-02-23

Our daughter has today been diagnosed with an intolerance to wheat and to exclude it from her diet for one month. Can anyone tell me does this = Gluten free? We are a little confused as we have just purchased a gluten free bread mix that contains wheat and we are not sure whether she can have this. Any help appreciated . Thanks

Re: Wheatfree = Gluten Free: from Peter on 2004-02-25

If your daughter has been tested by a doctor, she should have had blood tests for coeliac, as well as other tests before going on a gluten-free or wheat free diet.

Wheat intolerance and gluten-intolerance are not quite the same thing. If the diagnosis is wheat intolerance then she should not eat anything derived from wheat.

There are many people diagnosed with gluten-intolerance who will not eat anything derived from wheat even though the manufacturers claim that the gluten has been removed. ( I am one of these)

Take great care if re-introducing wheat into the diet after one month. If she does have an intolerance of wheat, the symptoms may be far worse.

Hi,
Help please!
I'm going mad trying to cut all forms of sugar out of my diet, i've been doing pretty well for the past 2 months but with Easter coming up & all that Chocolate it's going to be pretty hard, i have a really sweet tooth & have been substituting sugar for raw unheated organic honey, which of course i can not heat other wise i would be defeating the object. I wondered if you could provide a recipe for sugar free chocolate & also any deserts?!
Many thanks

Kind regards

Re: Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from on 2004-03-22

Hi My son has ulcerative colitis, I worked out it was gluten because my other son and myself was having other problems due to a gluten intolerance. He is better now (hopefully) because of his gluten free diet. The site that will help you most on the net is celiac.comwith cooking recipesand research). It's wonderful. It states that you can have negative blood test for celiac disease but still have symptoms. Read Dr. Fines research gluten intolerance. The blood test do not go postive until it has damaged the whole gut and gets into the blood stream then you are very sick with liver, throid, etc wrong with you

The big supermarkets usually have excellent quality control.
I get all my requirements from them.

Gluten tester: from on 2004-03-31

I am the parent of a coeliac child. I have heard in the USA (or elsewhere?) you can buy a bottle/vial of liquid that when squirted on food, tests for the presence of gluten.

Have you heard anything about this? If so, do you have any clues as to name of company, where the product is available, cost, etc.?

Please let me know.

Thanks
