Gluten-Free Licorice

Indeed, licorice candies are such sweet treats you just can’t get enough of it especially when your sweet tooth kicks in. However, that may not be the case for people with gluten sensitivity. But fret not, there are tons of gluten-free licorice available in the market. The question is, how do you make sure the licorice candy you have in hand is gluten-free?

Normally, if a product contains gluten, it will reflect on the packaging. So be sure you get to read the label first before purchasing. Wheat basically contains gluten, and it has been used for several licorice candies for quite a while now. If ever in doubt, try to look for the contact number or the website of the manufacturer on the package.

Also, be certain that the product is not manufactured together with others that contain gluten as it may be contaminated. Just because the amount of gluten present in the contaminated product is little doesn’t mean it would not cause any problem. It will, especially to the ones who have very high gluten sensitivity. Just to be on the safe side, make sure that the candy is processed in a factory dedicated to gluten free products alone.

Since the world is getting all digital now, if you’re having a hard time find licorice candies that are gluten-free, why not go online and look around over the Internet? The awareness of gluten intolerance and Celiac disease is spreading and it sure has expanded its horizon, so most manufacturers today are seeing to it that their products have gluten-free equivalents.

Heed these tips and you will still be able to enjoy you sweet little candy without the trouble gluten brings.

Gluten-Free Catering

Gluten-free catering is not always accessible, but if it is, it would be a good choice for private or corporate functions. It’s no surprise that gluten-free catering would be tad more expensive than the typical catering, but at least you can rest assured your food is gluten-free.

The reason as to why gluten-free food is not that cheap is the fact that it is a bit time-consuming and the extra effort that goes into preparation of gluten-free food. Also, majority of gluten-free products are not usually made in bulk. That said, each dish would have to be prepared carefully with full attention.

The outcome of all this effort is not only beneficial to the gluten-intolerant, you also make sure that food would taste better than its counterpart gluten added food items. Preparation of gluten-free food can be both complicated and sophisticated. Imagine all the mixing of gluten-free ingredients and all the effort in the kitchen to replace the usual ingredients with gluten-free ones. Imagine doing it in a massive amount.

Gluten free catering involves a lot of aspects beyond how the food is cooked. In many occasions, it is safe to say that a caterer that puts extra effort into cooking their meals would also go the extra mile to see to it that the ingredients they make use of are healthy and also to see to it that strict vigilance is put into practice to guarantee that the food is high-standard and not just merely pass the requirements set in the industry.

This would indicate that starting from choosing ingredients up to the time the food is delivered to the event, there is utmost care involved so as to guarantee that the food eaten at a higher price is of the best quality.

Do you think 25% or more of the population cares about gluten free product?

Question by Sheila O: Do you think 25% or more of the population cares about gluten free product?
I have a product that could easily be made gluten free that tastes absolutely amazing but I have choosen to this point not to make it gluten free because I am not sure that enough of the market cares. Do you think they do?

Best answer:

Answer by thexfilez
I think they would if they understood about the complications it can cause if you have an allergy to it. It can trigger off a whole host of other food allergies because it basically messes with your intestinal wall and allows other poisons into your system.

I don’t see why you wouldn’t make it gluten free. Those that don’t know what gluten is won’t care, and those that eat healthy and do care, will be pleased too, so you get both people wanting to buy your product then.

I really hope she doesnt have celiac, none of us her parents or ours have that, but please some advice !!! what should i do, thank you

Best answer:

Answer by K
…she’s sometimes constipated, occasionally rashy, and weight gain has slowed since she got more mobile. Okay, you have every formula-fed toddler on the planet.

Why would you think there’s a wheat issue here, given the total absence of symptoms of coeliac disease?

If a blood test shows I don’t have celiac disease, then do I 100% for sure not have it?

Question by Jake G: If a blood test shows I don’t have celiac disease, then do I 100% for sure not have it?
If I get tested for celiac disease and the results show I don’t have it, I heard I could still be allergic to gluten.
Is this true?
Sounds dumb… I mean if I don’t have it, then I don’t have it.

Best answer:

Answer by Nah Z
SOME people can have false negatives on the blood test. If you have significant gastro symptoms, your doctor can insert a camera into your belly to see if the disease is present or not, or to try and find out some other cause for your symptoms. Talk to your doctor about if this is appropriate.

Q&A: How does one know if they have Celiac Disease (think I might have it but not sure) & what foods can I eat?

Question by newmommie: How does one know if they have Celiac Disease (think I might have it but not sure) & what foods can I eat?
Hi, I’ve had digestive issues for several years now, and I’m starting to think I might have Celiac Disease since I eat a lot of whole wheat bread and whole wheat flour tortillas etc. and I still have digestive issues and get lots of headaches almost on a daily basis. I know people with Celiac disease need to avoid certain things, like wheat and products containing gluten, but what else should be avoided? Also, I love Pamela’s food line and know her stuff is gluten free, but what are some other good brands for people that suffer from Celiac Disease and where can I buy them? Thanks, I kinda hope I do have Celiac so I can finally figure out what’s been causing all my digestive issues all these years and can finally do something about it.

Hi there. I certainly don’t mean to tell you what to do, but I think that it is really important for you to see your doctor and tell them your concerns and they might send you for blood tests, but you need to stipulate that you want to be tested for Celiac because with normal blood tests, they test your blood for a multidude of things, where as the Celiac blood test is one specific blood test.

Let me tell you something else, you not only have to avoid wheat products containing gluten, but there are heaps of things you need to avoid. This gluten free diet is very restrictive.

Unfortunately, there is no set list of things to avoid that I know of, you just need to do a lot of research.

Anyhow, I hope this helps.
