Gluten free ! help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone !

I need some advice ? I am planning to go gluten free and went to asda to stock up ! Bloody hell ! i'm gonna starve !

I spent 2 hrs reading labels and bought very little. Eve the' free from ' had very little to offer .

What about dressings and gravey etc Has anyone any knowledge of products that are gluten free ? as I couldn't look through all of them !

I've been tested before for Coeliac before but I have now read that ,you can test negative for coeliac, but be gluten sensitive / intollerent so I want to go gluten free to find out.

Also , I noticed how expensive it was so I was wondering if you can get it on prescription ? I am going to talk to my doctor tomorrow.

Any advice greatly received x

  • im the same not coeliac but have wheat and gluten intolerances so cant get it on prescription. i have got samples from juvela and other companies on-line. i buy genesis bread and things from tesco and we eat plenty of meat, veg, rice ect. i have me, my daughter and my son all with wheat/gluten intolerance and me and my daughter with dairy allergy and son dairy intolerant. make eating out a nightmare.

  • Poor you ! it must be so hard to cater for everyone in your family x

  • we tend to eat a lot of fresh food at home, ie meat veg rice and wheat free pasta ect, and yet i still have probs loosing weight lol. hubby though prefers the cheap sausages ect rather than the wheat free ones which have no binders ect

  • Hi Eat gluten free it is fresh veg, apples, meat, chicken, eggs porridge, all sorts.

    Good bread at Tescoes biscuits cakes if you want some.

    Gravy I make my own stock gluten free flour gluten free worcester sauce yummy! I hope this helps in the end you have to read the labels good luck. xgins

  • Hi gins , yes a big help ,I shall try to make the gravy , good tip thanks x

  • Just a thought, a lot of people who are gluten intolerant can cope with spelt, I'm wondering if this may be of help to anyone. You can make really wonderful cakes using either polenta or ground almonds. Other than that I agree totally with gins, go with lots of fresh veges, fish, chicken, eggs etc.

    Foggy x

  • Thankyou,i will try and introduce spelt after I see how I am without gluten for the next few weeks x

  • Try Amazon - Grocery - Then type gluten free into search bar but most things are in bulk. Most supermarkets will have a free from section as well and be careful when checking labels as wheat free does not always mean gluten free.

  • Also an app - "Foodwiz" which scans bar codes and can tell you if there is gluten present and the Coeliac website coeliac.org.uk/ is another good place to look and has an online food directory.

  • Knorr stock cubes are wheat free. I use cornflour for thickening gravy and sauces. Tamari sauce is gluten free (soy) visit your local health food shop. They will have lots of flours etc that are gluten free. They tend to be expensive tho, but its a good place to browse. Alpro custard is very tasty. Asda own gf brown bread. Tesco nutty granola is delicious. Good luck.

  • I eat rye bread, it's better for my blood sugars; I'm diabetic, and I try and steer clear of all things 'wheaty'!! I've noticed that 'oaty' things can have wheat flour in too!! It can be a pain. I check the carb content...if it's over 7g per 100 g I leave it alone!! XX
