Gluten Free In Cm

24 posts in this topic

I'm looking careful to see where I can buy gluten free products in CM, I've already spotted and tried the gluten free bread at Butter is Better, if anyone has any other pointers they will be gratefully recieved.

How was the gluten free bread? Been meaning to try it out myself.

If you're a lover of truly good breads, dark bavarian, rye, sourdough, french etc, gluten free bread will be a big disappointment, but the choices are, gluten free bread or no bread! We learn to adjust and I have no doubt I will buy lots more of it.

CM, I thought I saw at Rimping some "low-gluten" (not gluten free) bread.

Unless you are very allergic, this might be a possibility?

Thanks but I already checked with Rimping and they don't make it or supply it, too bad.

Do you have celiac disease? That seems to be the main for avoiding gluten, but most people that don't have celiac disease tolerate gluten well in moderate amounts.

You might want to try Rimping near the airport. I bought some low Gluten bread there; maybe they were confused by your question or different branches have different things? Agree with a prior poster that the taste is different (and not very good too).

Yes it looks that way, I've got three more weeks on a gluten free diet and if the results remain the same I'll have the biopsy to confirm, thus far the diet has made a substantial difference, I'm sad to say.

I'll give them a try, the baker at the store near me was more than familiar with the question, it seems as though she gets asked on a regular basis.

A little curious here the diet has made substantial differences you are sad to say.

Are you getting worse because of the diet?

No, the diet merely confirms the condition hence that means I have much that I now have to give up permanently.

Good website on this problem: http://www.celiac.co...Free/Page1.html

It warns that if your body is really sensitive to glutens you will need to gluten-free your kitchen, your bathroom (apparently many products in the bathroom have gluten in them) and even kissing may be a hazard! Ouch!

Can you cook yourself and do you have facilities? After reading the kitchen section on the above web site, you may have to prepare most of your own foods depending on the severity of your allergy. There's an excellent and very large store called Yok Bakery Supply on the outer ring road between Big C Extra and Makro. They have an enormous selection of baking products and I believe I saw gluten free flour there. As I vaguely recall, it was imported and expensive. They seem to have some links to a big German company.

Yok is bigger than any of the Rimping branches. Maybe you can also talk to some of the bakers. If you cannot bake yourself, maybe you can make some private arrangement with someone who can. The UN Irish Pub makes good breads and maybe you could talk with someone there. You might also look out for a support group that has other celiac disease people in it. They can probably give you some good pointers.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks for the link and the kind words, I'm only just begining to get my head around how much of a life changing event this is but I have no doubt that I'm up to the challenge (gulp).

real food doesn't have gluten in it anyways, you will manage!

Most basic food doesn't have gluten in it but it does seem as thought the stuff is used almost everywhere, cosmetics, multi-vitamins, toothpaste and shampoos, not to mention most sauces used in cooking or as condoments. So yes, it's OK if you want to walk into a restaurant and order some plain coooked chicken and some plain cooked vegetables but chances that you might find such a place are slim. Even the cow pad gai that I had for lunch yesterday turned out to use a fish sauce in the making, that contains gluten!
