So you have either been instructed by your doctor , or a friend or have done re-search on your own and you must go gluten free, Don't panic I know its quite a bit to take in,
What was that? Dairy free and nut free too! The list goes on ?
If it does than this is the place for you .
Keep in mind if you wish to get tested via testing.
Starting the gluten-free diet before being tested for celiac disease makes an accurate diagnosis difficult.
In another Post Link here (POST COMING SOON)
I will talk about how to get diagnosed and all the information that goes along with that.
I will try to break them up if I can :
BE A LABEL READER!!!
Going Gluten free ( if the whole family is going gluten free)
What are items I need to Eliminate from my kitchen / Pantry and Freezers ?
1) Remove all Gluten products : Foods/products that may contain gluten:
Beers, Ales, Lager, Breading & Coating Mixes, Brown Rice Syrup, Communion Wafers, Croutons, Dressings, Drugs & Over-the-Counter Medications, Energy Bars, Flour & Cereal Products, Herbal Supplements, Imitation Bacon, Imitation Seafood, Marinades, Nutritional Supplements, Pastas, Processed Luncheon Meats, Sauces & Gravies, Self-basting Poultry, Soy Sauce or Soy Sauce Solids, Soup Bases, Stuffing’s, Dressings, Thickeners (Roux), Vitamins & Mineral Supplements
Stay away from : Wheat (Einkorn, Durum, Faro, Graham, Kamut, Semolina, Spelt), Rye, Barley and Triticale.
Cutting boards ?
Pots and Pans and Knives and Silverware = I find that these item's if properly cleaned with be okay , but if you feel safe or of course if you have a Celiac that has a life threatening allergy to it then best to change all those out too.
How about alcohol?
Distilled alcoholic beverages and vinegars are gluten free. Distilled products do not contain any harmful gluten peptides. Research indicates that the gluten-peptide is too large to carry over in the distillation process. This process leaves the resultant liquid gluten free. Wine and hard liquor beverages are gluten free. Beers, ales, lagers and malt vinegars are NOT gluten free. There are Many Gluten-free beers available .
Remember – Wheat Free is NOT GLUTEN FREE Spelt, rye or barley-based ingredients that are not gluten free. Spelt is a form of wheat.
What you can have – Fresh Meats – Beware of Added Broths and such , broths can contain gluten ! Fruits, Veggies, Beans, Seeds , Nuts, Plain Tofu ( Avoid Tofu with flavoring and such as they may contain Soy Sauce and other items that contain Gluten )

Gluten-free information on 2/24/2010 from Best Foods web site (www.bestfoods.com):
Gluten and Allergen informationAt this time, all Hellmann’s® and Best Foods® mayonnaise products are gluten-free.
Since product formulations change from time to time, the best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label.
From the Hellmann's website FAQ page (www.hellmanns.com) on 6/4/2009:
Question: Are Hellmann’s mayonnaise products gluten free? Answer: At this time, All Hellmann's mayonnaise products are gluten-free (Real, Canola, Light and Reduced Fat). Since product formulations change from time to time, the best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label. Ingredients that may contain any of the top eight allergens as defined by the FDA, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, seafood, wheat, eggs, and milk or dairy, as well as any ingredient that may contain gluten, are always listed on the label.
1) Q: Are French's® Mustard’s gluten free?
2) Grey Poupon’s Dijon Mustard isn’t just a great addition to your meal, but it’s also an award-winning condiment that was given the gold medal in the Worldwide Mustard Competition. Made with mustard seeds, white wine, herbs and spices, this gluten-free mustard pays homage to the original Dijon recipe which hails from a French city of the same name.
3) Annie's Naturals Organic Dijon Mustard . Is gluten free and delicious.
4) Koops Mustard Deli Spicy Brown is Gluten Free
Worcestershire Sauce This is one product I see allot of ppl use in there cooking what I often run into is that they use the reguar familiar brand but that Brand Is NOT gluten free! :(
1) Edward & Sons Organic Vegan Worcestershire Sauce – delicious!!!!! and Vegan too!
2. Is all non-distilled vinegar gluten free? Almost, but read ingredient lists carefully. According to The Vinegar Institute, the most commonly used starting materials for vinegar are apple, grape, corn, and rice. If non-distilled vinegar uses .
Pure distilled vinegar is gluten free, malt vinegar is not. Flavored and seasoned vinegars may contain gluten, most typically in the form of malt, so ingredient lists should be carefully read. If wheat protein is contained in vinegar, the label will say so. The single word “vinegar” on a food label implies cider/apple vinegar and is gluten free.

MY BREAD RECIPE :
Udi's Gluten Free Bread and Products (contains eggs) (Our baked goods are completely nut free and made in dedicated nut free (tree nut & peanut free) facilities. Some of our granola products do contain nuts, however these are made in completely separate plants from the rest of our gluten free baked goods. Additionally, our three new cookie varieties (Peanut Butter Coconut, Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel Cashew) are also made in a separate bakery. Please check out our product catalog for the list of ingredients in each of our products. )
(egg free,tree nut and peanut free )

Always check your local bakery’s allot are offering gluten free breads and goodies, always ask about contamination and other ingredient 's if you have any other allergies.
