Places where gluten lurks

I thought it would be good to start a list for those who might be new to going gluten-free. Amazing where this stuff is hiding! Even if it's not low carb, I still put it on the list.

Here are some places I know of...of course, bread, pastas and pastries. Someone once told me that white bread is gluten free but not all white bread is gluten free as I have discovered.

Soy sauce
Johnny seasoning
low carb products
instant carnation breakfast
canned soups
canned meats like roast beef
some hot chocolates

And the one that shocked me-when someone asked me to look at the ingredients-was e-cigarettes! That made me shake my head.

I forgot to add in: bacon, sausage, hamburger patties and eggs at some fast food chains. Not all of them are this way. But I have learned from past experience to check the ingredients first. I could not figure out why I started bloating and getting headaches after having eggs at one chain. Then I looked up the ingredients. Wouldn't you know? Wheat.

Vitamins, medications, anything malted including vinegars, envelope glue, anything containing wheat/rye/barley including all beers and liquors made with those grains, gravies, shampoo/conditioner ...

If you need to avoid gluten for health purposes then it's worth it checking out the safe food lists the celiac association verifies.

Temporary tattoos

A friend who has celiac had a reaction after running a temporary tattoo booth at a school fair. She tracked down the manufacturer and learned that their adhesive is wheat-based.

The glue on envelopes contains gluten. Use a glue stick, a damp sponge, or self-sealing envelopes.

You all have listed the ones I know already, but I though I'd share......

A good replacement for soy sauce at home is Bragg's aminos. Also, tamari is usually gf and can be had at many Asian restaurants. PF Changs has a whole gf menu and some of it is LC too.

My sister is gluten free and she finds she has to avoid the smaller independent restaurants as most of them don't understand the concept and serve food with gluten even after they have said it is gluten free.

I had an experience at a restaurant (local chain) yesterday. They listed G and V for 'Gluten' and 'Vegan' meals. It was evident they meant G= Gluten Free from the context. When my 'G' fish taco came, it came breaded and fried. I asked and was told that 'G' meant they could make it gluten free (not noted anywhere on the menu- I checked) AND came with a different tortilla than had been listed as 'G' in the menu (a separate listing). So.. not a good experience, but interesting to see how the different places do this. It will take weeks to move the effects out of my body, but at least I don't have severe reactions- mine just flairs my psoriasis (I want to heal up!) and some GI effects. sigh.
I should know better, but I keeping hoping to just be a normal girl lol.

Oh- I didn't eat the taco, but I had eaten some of the corn tortillas, those were probably the corn/wheat variety.

Tortilla chips in restaurants are usually a no-go because they fry them up themselves so you subject yourself to cross contamination.

Tortilla chips at home are usually safe.

Unfortunately you always have to check, check, and check again whenever you order out. Check when you first sit down, check when you order, check when the food is delivered, and so on.
