Gluten Free News 21st June 2012

Time for some Gluten Free news – tidbits and tasty treats from across the globe.

First stop Australia…

What Can I Eat? is a very resourceful allergy friendly website that has just sent out their latest newsletter with a free Winter Food Guide emag. It has some yummy winter recipes and some advice as well as links. Worth checking out. You do have to be a newsletter subscriber to be able to download. Oh and once you do, you can also access their other handy guides for Christmas, Back to School and Easter.

Next… USA

I just discovered this blog, The Gluten-Free Homemaker and found she hosts, ‘Gluten Free Wednesdays‘ where blogs can link up and share their gluten free meal ideas. There is a monthly theme idea but it isn’t┬ámandatory┬áto do ideas based around that. I will have to get my act into gear and join in, looks like fun.

Frito-Lay is an American based manufacturer that makes snack foods. From what I read about the inter webs is that they plan on testing everything for gluten free so they can label their products accordingly. A step in the right direction.

Up to Canada now…

Did you know that Canadians can claim some of the cost of their gluten free foods on their tax? Yes it’s true – I found this article here. There is a bit of work involved but I think it’s great they recognise that as coeliac’s we have no choice but to eat gluten free food. Australian government needs to do the same!

Across to England…

and I dig a bit deeper and find out the UK get their staple gluten free products on prescription! Oh you lucky things.

Do you have any gluten free news?

  1. I don’t have any GF news, but I really hope the Australian government comes up with a way to make gluten free food cheaper or refundable for those who need it.
    It always seems so unfair that I, or any other coeliac/gluten intolerant person has to pay an outrageous price for a loaf of bread just because our bodies work differently.

      I also hope they would consider making it cheaper… it is such a shame that some governments realise the extra cost and some don’t. Thanks for coming by and commenting :)
