When our son was diagnosed at 20-months old with Celiac Disease, my husband and I were relieved to finally have answers, but overwhelmed by the gluten-free diet. We compiled this list of 'other names' of gluten to help us when we went shopping. Now we have it down, but I still keep a copy of this list with me for when we are looking for something new. I hope you find it as useful as we did.
Dining out once you are diagnosed with Celiac Disease can be a challenge. You should always speak to your server or the restaurant manager about your restrictions. There are many places that you can eat safely. Here are a few that our members enjoy.
As always please use good discretion when dining out. Gluten-free dining in and around Orange County, California:
* For yogurt and ice cream flavors stay away from cookie dough, brownie and malt flavors as they are not GF.
** When dining out, ALWAYS, ask your server to consult the chef on gluten-free items. Do not stop asking questions until you are comfortable with the answers. Your health is worth it.
