Controlling gluten

Controlling gluten in your food is difficult

Celiacs can control the food supply in their own home by reading labels and being careful what they buy and eat. A simple thing like dipping in the butter a second time when buttering toast, can leave bread crumbs in the butter. This may be all it takes to trigger an autoimmune reaction. Some Celiacs remove all the gluten from their homes and everyone eats gluten free, it is easier and safer that way.

Controlling the food at home is difficult, but when eating out a Celiac has no control over what is in the food. If gluten free food is ordered and the cook contaminates it with flour during preparation, Celiacs will become ill.

Restaurants are starting to become more aware of the problems Celiacs face and many restaurants can prepare gluten free food. The problem for Celiacs is finding those restaurants that can serve them safely. Travel can be especially difficult when one is not familiar with the restaurants in the area. Finding a restaurant is a simple thing for most people, but for a Celiac it can be a time consuming and frustrating experience. When most people travel they find a restaurant that looks good and stop to eat. When a Celiac wants to find a restaurant they stop and ask if the restaurant can serve gluten free food. Often this question is met with a blank stare from the server, so moving on is the only choice. When a restaurant says they can serve gluten free food a Celiac needs to decide if in fact they can. Usually this is done through a series of questions, if the answers seem reliable the decision may be to stay for a meal. If the food is contaminated with gluten, the Celiac is the one who suffers not the restaurant employees.

Regulations for food labeling in Canada

Health Canada Regulations – Food Allergens

New regulations regarding the labeling of food allergens for Canadians came into force August 4, 2012. The Health Canada report states that “approximately five to six per cent of young children and three to four per cent of adults suffer from food allergies. Nearly one per cent of the population is affected by celiac disease, for whom the consumption of foods containing gluten can lead to long term complications.

The new regulations will require better labeling of packaged foods to make it easier for people to understand what allergens are present in the food they purchase. Under the old rules labels often showed contents such as spices, or natural or artificial flavours. These products could contain gluten or other allergens and the user had no way of knowing what the contents were.

The new regulations will require additional and better labeling and require clearer language declaring “hidden” allergens, gluten sources.

Great new for Celiacs and others with food allergies.

Pip’s Place Gluten Free Cakery


My daughter Olivia, who we nick-named Pippi when she was a little girl, was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was fourteen years old. Coming to grips with her new dietary restrictions was a challenge for Pip, but also for me as her mother.
As we learned together how to deal with her condition, I was inspired by her strength, determination and willingness to accept this new way of eating. I was determined that Olivia would not have to give up her favorites when it came to my baking. What ensued was a journey of discovery, as I learned to create wonderful recipes from gluten free ingredients. After just a short time on the new diet she commented to me, “Mom, do people really feel this good every day?” Success. Not only was she finally healthy and feeling well, she was doing so while continuing to enjoy her favorite baked treats. Eating gluten free is more than a diet – it is a way of life. Due to the risk of contamination, our entire house became a gluten free zone. With my new celiac-friendly recipes, Pip’s brothers. Drew and Bradley, didn’t know (or care) that all the baking in the house had become gluten free.
Olivia paid me a wonderful compliment before she left for college saying “with everything you baked for me, I have never felt deprived.” Pip’s Place is for Olivia and everyone like her with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. You can safely enjoy homemade baking with confidence because there is no chance of cross contamination. At Pip’s Place, you can finally feel free to indulge again.

Pip’s Place is an upscale, gluten free bakery in NYC located on the. The cakery is dedicated to providing a safe haven for those with celiac disease or gluten allergies, where you can enjoy wonderful baked treats without the concern of cross contamination. Personal experience with celiac disease has fueled a passion to create fine desserts that everyone can enjoy, without sacrificing quality or taste. Pip’s Place has completed the Third Party Accreditation Process with the Gluten Free Food Accreditation program. Their unique blend of gluten-free ingredients, and a long process of trial and error, has allowed them to provide a wide range of delicious gluten free baked goods that are entirely indistinguishable from regular baked goods.

“Is that gluten free? Really?” is a common first response when their goods are sampled. Mmmmm …. is often the second.
Their goods are baked fresh daily on site with the finest ingredients, low fat where possible and never containing preservatives. Of course, a baked treat needs to be accompanied by a fine coffee or tea, and Pip’s Place offers a wide selection of both.

While Pip’s Place is a gluten free bakery in Manhattan and is dedicated to serving all those who use gluten free in NYC, they also provide shipping and delivery across North America.

Gluten Free Bakery New Cascadia Traditional

New Cascadia Traditional is a gluten free bakery with a gluten free lunch menu. The Celiac Restaurant encourages you to support New Cascadia and all gluten free restaurants and gluten free bakeries.

New Cascadia Gluten Free Bakery

New Cascadia Traditiona is a dedicated Gluten Free bakery. They only produce gluten free baked goods. They verify and source the ingredients to ensure that they are always safe.

The staff at New Cascadia Traditiona is well informed in the issues of safety specific to gluten free food. In fact some of the staff are gluten intolerant and all are happy to answer your questions regarding their practices and ingredients.

Chris and Teresa at New Cascadia Traditional say,
“About a year ago a long time customer of ours asked me if I had tried a new gluten-free bread that was, at that time, new to the market. It was described as “whole grain” and really good. There had not yet been a gluten-free whole grain bread that was mass produced and broke free of the long held stereotype of being akin to a brick than to its wheat based cousin. So I sought out this bread at our local natural foods store. I read the front of the bread bag and there were the words “gluten free” and “whole grain.” Next I turned over the package and read the ingredients: Water, brown rice flour (not a bad start),tapioca starch, potato starch (things seemed to have quickly taken a turn in the less-than-whole-grain direction) then oil, sugar, then more refined starchiness. Somewhere down the line, I believe the eighth or ninth ingredient listed, was the other whole grain contained in the bread. After that were a number of ingredients that I had difficulty pronouncing. At this point it dawned on me just how different we do gluten-free at New Cascadia. Simple, honest, wholesome and always gluten-free.

This was about the same time that we introduced our Multigrain bread. What many consider to be our best bread, it is nearly 80% whole grain and without any refined ingredients or xanthan gum. Sure, we use starch and xanthan gum in many of our products. But we keep the refined stuff to a minimum. Even many of our pastries are mostly wholegrain and made with a short, understandable ingredients list. We take a simple, straight forward approach to baking: Comfort food for the gluten-free crowd that yearns for grandma’s old fashioned recipes of (pre gluten-free) days gone by.

We believe that our customers deserve the best, freshest baked goods available and we strive to make eating gluten-free an enjoyable experience. We use quality ingredients and even use vegetables, herbs and berries grown in the warmer months from our own organic garden beside the bakery. If you are ever in Southeast Portland, Oregon stop by for a cookie, pastry, pizza or loaf of bread. If you would like a slice of pie or want to order a cake, we will be happy to oblige. We’re sure you will appreciate the difference.”
