I thought that bit was interesting, too, but I didn't have time to dive quite that far down the rabbit hole. :D

Speaking of which ...

*does* anyone have a Celiac cheat-sheet of foods to avoid when feeding a sufferer? I've looked around online, and the stuff I can find is aimed at folks on voluntary gluten-free diets, not people with celiac.

I follow a gluten free diet but it is not voluntary. I get very ill if I eat it and I am not celiac. I think the biggest problem cooking for us is the cross-contamination in someone else's kitchen. Chopping boards, bowls, mixers and utensils can harbor gluten. Sauces and seasonings can have gluten but the labeling is much improved over what it used to be. Fortunately there are things like gluten free soy sauce these days. Basically, just real food is good for us. I do occasionally eat Udi's bread and Barilla has a good GF pasta. Deb

Deb,

If you're so sentitive to gluten that cross-contamination is a problem, it certainly *sounds* like you have celiac. You've been tested?

I have been tested for celiac. I was negative and don't have the celiac gene. The average time to diagnose celiac, unfortunately, is almost ten years. A lot of damage can be done by then. I do have a double gene for gluten intolerance which can mean additional food sensitivities (many also have dairy and soy issues) and can sometimes be tougher to manage than celiac. Deb
