« on: April 02, 2011, 22:53:59 pm »

It can also be derived from soy or wheat, but a quick google told me mostly from corn or cabbage...I guess the only way to know for sure is to contact the company that made the flour, though if it is GF I bet it is from corn.

She can't have soy either and in GF it wouldnt be wheat

this is getting silly now lol, I suppose though i can just buy the same blend seperatly and try it for bread anyway

(not gotta find rice flour, tapicoa flour and potato flour)

Ive been told i can get flours on perscription from the doctors here so i will eventually have collectop o them lol

Well, that's good at least...the only thing here is a tax deduction if you are celiac and buying GF foods.

xantham gum is fine. even vegetable gums, emulsifiers and vegetable oils (all typically from soy) are on low or negligible levels for sals as so refined. these are usuallly fine for soy intolerant little ones too as the protein is broken down so much thru processing.

do you have a good guide or listing of sals in food to use? i use the RPAH Elimination Diet Handbook and it's fantastic.
