    White rice is NOT GLUTEN FREE. Be sure to only give brown rice. Gluten and Wheat free is extremely easy to follow once you have educated yourself on the ins and outs of it. I would insist that the parents provide food until you have a very clear and accurate understanding of what is and what isn't WF and GF. See how even on this forum people have the best intentions but make innocent mistakes by saying give them rice when it absolutly must be brown rice. You need to be clear on the specifics having sourced your info from the professionals, or the other alternative is ask the parents to provide food ongoing if you don't want to change all your kids to W and G free as I assume you don't want to make an extra meal daily.

    My household is Wheat and Gluten free. It is super easy and as long as you aren't serving processed foods you should not have to worry about hidden gluten in items. For example, gluten is found in sandwich meats...that is a processed food and I do not serve processed foods to my daycare children so it is not an issue I need to watch out for.

    As a side note I buy my organic gluten free grains in bulk which saves me an enormous amount of money. It is all certified Non Gmo, Organic and Gluten free so no worries over cross contamination.

    Where do you get them from? I have purchased some flours and such online from nuts.com and have been happy with them.

    I'm in Nova Scotia. The site I mentioned is in the US so it would be great to find something else.

    My hubby was diagnosed celiac about 6 months ago and I am surprised to learn that white rice isn't gluten free?! Goes to show you that going wheat free has a definite learning curve. I find that it can be quite expensive to go gluten free. I was buying a lot of the baking mixes,which are very pricey so since I've started my Christmas baking I'm trying to make my own flour mix. Cfred, what type of flour do you combine the xantham gum with?
    I've found deli meats that are gluten free. I don't eat them because of the nitrates but my hubby does. I've also heard that oats are often contaminated with gluten because of how they're processed.

    I believe that white rice itself only contains rice gluten which I believe is safe for celiac but you need to be careful about what brands you buy because the enriching process involves putting a coating on it that cn involve a gluten base. http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/gl...-Free-Rice.htm

    I buy lundsberg farms (sp) rice as it is certified gluten free. I can also find gf oats at superstore. If you check out elanaspantry.com she has some really great recipes. She uses almond flour which can be hard to find (in ns anyways) so I've always ordered it online. I buy in bulk, stick it in my freezer and use as needed. Her recipes are really easy and taste good. Even my kids like them so that's saying something

    Yes it is expensive. Very.

    There is treatment for gluten/wheat allergy and it utilizes the Immune System to fix an immune problem.
    There are 2 controls by the immune system which are compared to Yin-yang or positive & negative.
    1. The helper T Cell functions to increase antibodies
    2. The Suppressor T Cell functions to decrease antibodies also called Regulatory T cells or T Reg cells

    Oral Tolerance is the method that scientist & researchers called this treatment.
    It harnesses the T REg cells and lowers gluten antibodies.

    The good news is this method has been successful in animal trials.
    However, it has not been successful in human trials.
    The reason for the human failure is lack of a blood factor called B7. Animal experiments were done on young animals and their immune systems produced good enough quantities of B7.

    The good news is that certain Herbs are able to induce B7 ( a lymphokine) by blood lymphocytes.

    Modern Medicine has joined with research in doing experiments but their policy is herbs are not part of their approved ingredients because herbs can not be patented and will not generate much return.

    However, our company has combined the knowledge of Oral Tolerance and herbs to produce a successful formula. There are over 40 known herbs that are able to induce B7 by lymphocytes.
    There is one last hurdle in this formula. To produce the needed B7, the dose must be a certain dosage on humans and we found that though B7 is induced, the blood cells that produced the B7 also produce other lymphokines such as Tumor necrosis Factor, Interferons and Interleukins many of these cause inflammation in the body and inflammation leads to failure since it causes increase of antibodies. Therefore to create a successful formula, we had to experiment with various herbs and herb formula and found certain herb combinations lead to minimum inflammation.
    So our formula is Oral Tolerance which is antigens as peptide and the correct herb to produce B7.
    Since the formula lowers 3 Antibodies Immunoglobins M & Immunoglobin G &Immunoglobin E , the Immunoglobin E is involved in allergies -it heals allergies.
