am in Brittany and decided to attempt one of the creperies that are everywhere. i am gluten sensitive and reckoned that as most of their pancakes are made with buckwheat would be ok. however decided to go for moules marienies and frites - on the basis that they didnt have other thing fried in the oil as we would. Spoke to one of the boys who had fair english and said there was no gluten in any of their pancakes.
however the frites definitely seemed to be coated in something ? not sure what and the sweet pancake was lighter than one would expect for buckwheat. Anyway as my symptoms are a increase in pain i decided to risk it and manage the pain today.
And today i dont appear to have suffered any ill effects!!!!!! Is french flour made diferently to ours and has anyone else experienced this
