    Gluten Free 13th Jun 17 at 5:20 PM
    Hi. This is my 1st post as have just joined and haven't found this subject elsewhere.
    My daughter is on a gluten free diet, so is restricted somewhat with her food intake.
    We live in the central highlands of Scotland and have a Co-op and a Tescos express in our village and both, commendably have a modest g/f section. The nearest large town Stirling, is 15 miles away. We have only found a g/f section in two supermarkets there. Morrisons and Sainsburys.
    With the former, by far, offering the best value! About the most ridiculous price we saw, I think, was a small loaf of bread. About 10 slices for £3.00. Morrisons appear to have taken this on board with the greatest enthusiasm and now after a recent refurbishment, have one side of an entire eisle stocked with G/F

    The brand of sharing crisps called Passions available in Aldi now do a Gluten free version of the lattice cut crisps in Salt & Vinegar and Cheese & Onion, I'm afraid I don't know the cost.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Aldi have a range of gluten free products. It looks like one of their occassional offers. I saw some Lentil pasta amonst other things. (sorry not much help, but I don't need to use gluten free foods, they just caught my eye, because of the red colour.)

    Aldi also do corn-based GF pasta, and organic Buckwheat pasta as well. As well as a lot of loaves, buns, etc. There is an Aldi in Stirling.

    A friend of mine has coeliac and he is very impressed with m&s gluten free range.

    For eating out he likes Carluccios, Wahaca, Prezzo and GBK when he needs a dirty burger.

    Oh how he rejoiced when he discovered that Peroni do gluten free.

    I have found TESCO better recently for this sort of thing. Their 'free from' range is pretty good. Noit sure if they have changed their product range recently, but they do seem better than they used to be. Try health food stores too.

    Estrella do a Gluten Free beer called Estrella Daura.

    Sainsburys and I suspect the other supermarkets stock a Gluten Free beer/pilsner.

    Tilda rice do at least 1 or maybe more packets of rice that are Gluten Free.

    I am just trying some of the products from Manna Vida, they can be found in Ocado, Amazon, Yumbles and they have their own online store, so far I have tried the Focaccia and Tea Bread, both are excellent and you wouldn't know they are Gluten free, very easy to make with no kneading necessary, they also provide the baking trays in the kits
