UPDATE – New Holiday Hours

UPDATE – Jane’s Gluten Free Foods is Now OPEN

I was in today for a quick walk through.  The selection and variety is second to none, and prices are in the same range as the chain stores.  The store has many products I’ve never seen in the area, some I’ve never seen period.

She told me she was going to bring in new products on a regular basis, and will even take suggestions/requests if there is something she doesn’t have.  It’s definitely a one stop shop, no more running around to ten stores trying to fill a grocery list.

I’ve created a special discussion section for Jane’s in the forum HERE.

I just found out today that the East Side Mario’s in Moncton has a Gluten Free Menu and Gluten Free Pasta.  I’m not sure about the other locations and I didn’t find anything on their website.  I use to love their Chicken Amatriciana, I hope it’s Gluten Free.

Easter is just around the corner and you know what that means right?

CHOCOLATE BUNNIES

Unfortunately for someone with Celiac Disease, those cute little bunnies can make them sick.  While shopping the other day I decided to read the labels on some of those oh so yummy bunnies.  Many of them had the dreaded “May Contain Wheat” or “Made in a Facility the Processes Wheat” but some had no warning at all.  If you’re like me, that means stay away.

Fortunately, the lovely people at MyGlutenFacts.com have done all the work and compiled a list of Gluten Free Easter Candy.  They have them listed in three categories;  “Dedicated GF Line”, “Dedicated GF Facility” and “Cleaned Production Line”, personally I’m weary of the later.

At time of writing the Canadian list contained 314 products.  The Lists are available for Canada and the US.

You can view the Canadian list HERE.

Glutino have a new Gluten Free Bread in stores and it’s VERY GOOD.  I purchased a loaf at The Atlantic Superstore – Trinity in Moncton.

I’ve been eating alot of the Udi’s bread lately but I may be jumping ship.  Genius by Glutino bread is “fluffier” than Udi’s and the slices are bigger.  I don’t have any “Real Bread” here to compare it with, but it must be close to the same size.  I haven’t tried the Multigrain yet, so I can’t comment on it.

I’m going to give Genius a try for a few weeks and decide which I prefer Udi’s or Genius or maybe I’ll just eat both and encourage the local stores to keep bringing in new Gluten Free Products.

Enjoy!

Updated update – Campbell’s has a nice new page about their Gluten Free Products.  Take a Look.

The selection of Gluten Free products at the Mapleton CO-OP is getting better all the time.  They currently have four different sections carrying various Gluten Free items.  The first stop is in the back/left corner of the store between the Deli and the Meat Department, there you will find a great selection of Udi’s Gluten Free Breads and Muffins.  Then walk through the Meat Department to find Degenhardt’s Gluten Free Sausages, Wieners and Bacon (MmmmBacon).  Then make a sharp right down one of the isles (can’t remember which one) and you will find a huge selection of Gluten Free products (I will list them in the Wiki when I get a chance) and last but not least they have a great selection of Kinnikinnick products in a freezer next to the Pharmacy.

The Mapleton CO-OP is located @ 90 Mapleton Rd, Moncton, NB.

On February 16th, 2011 Health Canada Published Amendments to the Food Allergen Labelling Regulations.  Canada’s new food allergen labelling regulations will come into force on August 4th, 2012 giving the manufacturers 18 months to implement the new labelling regulations.  I’ve only skimmed through the documents found at Health Canada, but I plan to read through all of them.

The new requirements regarding Gluten are;

  • The gluten source will need to be declared when a food contains gluten protein or modified gluten protein from barley, oats, rye, triticale or wheat, including kamut or spelt;

Prior to this Amendment, Gluten was not a priority food allergen, therefore gluten containing ingredients could be hidden in “spices” and “flavours”, this will no longer be the case.  This is great news and should make our life much easier.  Maybe now we can save some money by buying mainstream products instead of the very expensive specialty products.

I noticed last week that most Mastro Deli meats are Gluten Free.  On what I’m assuming are their newer packages, it is clearly written Gluten Free on the back of the package near the list of ingredients.  On the other packages it is printed on a white “meat dept” type label stuck to the front of the package.  These deli meats make very nice sandwiches on Udi’s White sandwich bread (oh oh, Just realized We didn’t Post anything on Udi’s yet.).  Mastro Deli Meats can be found at both Sobey’s and Superstore, not sure about Co-op.

Hi, this site is not officially “Live” yet, so you may not see many updates.  I’m finishing up a few things here and there and everything should be ready to roll soon.  Fell free to sign-up and leave comments.  You can also explore the Forum and the Wiki until I get everything up and running.

Thank you,

Marc
