Gluten Free Product Reviews
There are companies popping up all the time who manufacture gluten free food products. There are also those foods that are not labelled gluten free, however by reading the ingredients on the labels you will find that they are in fact gluten free friendly.
Want to know what brand of baked beans are gluten free, which is the best flour mix or which gluten free bread tastes the least like cardboard?
Then look no further as below you will find a number of reviews of gluten free food products. Be sure to let me know if you agree or not and if you have found a great product you want to share.
I have posted before about how the coeliac society’s in Australia and New Zealand note that oats should not be consumed by coeliacs without a biopsy before and after consumption (read about why here). However the Canadian Celiac Assocation state:
Clinical evidence confirms that consumption of pure, uncontaminated oats is safe in the amount of 1/2 – 3/4 cup per day for adults with celiac disease. Individuals with celiac disease who wish to add oats or oat products to their diet must ensure that the oats they are eating are free from gluten contamination.
They do note however that:

I was lucky enough to receive a package from Game Farm, the largest multi-species game bird producer in the Southern Hemisphere, specialising in the breeding and processing of game birds, specialty poultry and supply of game meats. One of the products I received to try was a duck. I have to say this was rather intimidating at first since I have never roasted a chicken let alone a duck (I have always left big roasts to the pro, my mum).
I wanted to make duck pancakes as I used to love getting these from Chinese restaurants but since going gluten free More >
One of my favourite things about Easter time is Hot Cross Buns. This is funny because I went through a stage where I would only eat fruit free Hot Cross Buns as I hated the taste of cooked raisins (if you are like this there are a few options for you below!).
Luckily in Australia there are a number of companies that make gluten free Hot Cross Buns (it seems they aren’t as easy to find in Canada – so if anyone knows where I can get them here please let me know!).
Here is a run down of some of the options More >
I didn’t really eat biscuits/cookies that often before going gluten free so I don’t often look for gluten free versions. However at work one day we had an all day conference and my manager was nice enough to buy some LEDA Choc Chip & Golden Crunch Cookies.
These cookies were absolutely delicious – so much so that it wasn’t just me (the glutard) going back for more. I couldn’t even decide which flavour I liked better! They were almost too good as by the end of the day all of us felt rather ill.
The cookies are available in Coles in the More >
I was recently asked what gourmet chocolates (that you can buy in the supermarket) are gluten free and I have to say I didn’t really know. Which got me thinking, there are probably a lot of people out there who want to know the same thing, especially when wanting to give their gluten free friends a little prezzie.
After standing in the chocolates isle of Coles and reading the back of every box of chocolates (aren’t I nice doing this for you :P) I have put together a list of the safe (aka gluten free) options:

You know when you hear about an idea and you wish you had thought of it… well that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about Allergy Riders.
Allergy Riders is a fun and simple food labelling systems for those with dairy, gluten, egg and nut allergies as well as those who choose to eat vegan. The range consists of cupcake baking cups and food flags.
Personally, I get nervous when going to a function that they will place my ‘special’ food near everyone else’s ‘normal’ food and therefore it will get accidentally eaten before I can More >
