I'm more limited gluten than gluten-free, but I know quite a bit about gluten and casein free diets being the parent of an autistic son.  
Thank you for the invitation!

Hey everyone, I am wondering if anyone buys bulk GF flours, and if you do where you get them at. Thanks!

I order direct from +Bob's Red Mill. My local cash and carry also carries a small assortment.  Cash and Carry is a restaurant supplier.

Ever wonder which OTC pain relievers are Gluten-Free? Great update on Tylenol, Aleve, Advil ... + store brands from About.com.
NOTE: FDA's new GF labeling regulations do NOT apply to pharmaceuticals & OTC meds.

Going completely gluten-free is socially restrictive, expensive and time-consuming. Yet the diet is the only treatment out there for people with celiac disease, an autoimmune condition that damages the lining of the small intestines when triggered by...

More bad news this week for Gluten-Free product recalls: Bart and Judy's GF Cookies are dangerously contaminated with gluten.
Yet another reason to insist on certified GF products.

Here are the statement & testing results from Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC:
“Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC recently tested a box of Bart and Judy’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies for gluten contamination using the R5 ELISA Mendez method. The product tested well above 20 parts per million of gluten. Detailed test results are available only to subscribers of Gluten Free Watchdog. Test results provide a snapshot picture of the gluten content of this product at one point in time. There is no way of knowing without testing many more samples whether the results of the one sample tested are representative of the gluten content of this product as a whole.” For more information about Gluten Free Watchdog see www.glutenfreewatchdog.org. Written permission to post this statement was provided to subscribers of Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC.

Here's their corp page: http://www.bartsbakery.com/index.php?page=all-products
bart@bartsbakery.com
jordan@bartsbakery.com

Let them know how you feel about them not taking GF seriously.

I'd like to also point out that my pal +Gluten Dude called this company out for contamination last August.

It's extremely disconcerting, +Janice Mansfield, I agree. Especially if you knew the levels to which they were testing. This wasn't a case of 25 ppm, but HUNDREDS of ppm, from the recent test results.
This bunch seem like bad actors anyway. They've even started a phony website to lambast a GF blogger who was calling them to task for their contamination.
Either your product is handled appropriately to ensure that there is no cross-contact, or it is not. You can't simply put a product out there that's "sortof GF" and market it as safe. People will get sick, but folks like these seem to not appreciate or understand that at all.
Thank goodness we finally got our FDA to follow in Canada's footsteps and establish GF food labeling regulations. August 2014 can't come fast enough -- this company would have been subject to the penalties under those regulations if it had happened after implementation in August.

Interesting article citing the Journal of #Neurology (2014) case study suggesting that #gluten may exacerbate #Parkinson's symptoms.

Could gluten's toxicity extend to the nervous system, producing symptoms identical to classical Parkinson's disease? A new case study adds to a growing body of research indicating that wheat's neurotoxicity is greatly underestimated.

I love snacking while watching a movie on Friday night, don't you? Sometimes we all crave something bad, something breaded. Bad news - virtually everything breaded contains MSG, plus you can not be sure what you are actually eating. How about something breaded that is also healthy?  Here is my take on it - cauliflower nuggets, baked and of course #glutenfree, but also yummy at the same time. Great way to get your kids to eat their veggies!

Just a reminder for everyone who posts:
They need to be recipes that would typically include gluten, but made gluten-free, not naturally Gluten-free recipes

I shared my "lunch" yesterday on Instagram and discovered that many GF folks didn't know that Chick-fil-A had a dedicated fryer for their waffle fries. 
Don't blame me for your subsequent drive-through antics!
(They also have GF grilled nuggets, FYI!)

Use caution, even when buying trusted Gluten-Free brands, they may not all be GF. 
It's disappointing when brands don't distinguish between their packaging: buyer beware!!!
Have you found similarly confusing packaging? Please share so we can help keep our community safe!
