I love raspberry tea and since it's caffeine free, that is a plus for me.

I usually buy Bigelow's raspberry tea.. it's the real deal .. all raspberry, no black tea.

I went to the grocery store today and checked out Lipton's raspberry flavored tea. I noticed it said with "natural flavors."

So i dutifully checked the ingredients list. OMG!!! It contained MALTED BARLEY!!! I was SHOCKED that BARLEY would be in a TEA!!!

So if you love raspberry tea and get it at a restaurant or convenience store .. BEWARE!!! And forget about Lipton's!

We have a few restaurants here who serve the real deal. One way to tell is to ask if it's sugar free. If it is, it's most likely the real deal .. but you might want to ask the source.

SHEESH!!!

When I first went gluten-free six years ago, several herbal teas used roasted barley as the sweetener, so I always check ingredients or call the manufacturer.

Fortunately, more tea boxes are being labeled as gluten-free right on the box these days.

Just had a misadventure with yogurt recenty. It had wheat sirup in it although it was sold in a health-food store as "natural" yogurt (no flavour and normally no sweetner except for the leftover lactose).

In France natural yogurt is the norm, and it is made of milk and the necessary lactobacteria to make the yogurt, they sometimes add powedered milk but nothing else should be added.

I actually got diarrhea from it and I couldn't figure out why until my husband waded through the hundred lines of stuff (written in about 15 different languages)listing the ingredients to find they had added wheat sirup to the yogurt.

Shopping is going to take a really long time if you can't even grab "natural" yogurt from the shelf without spending half an hour reading up defensively what's on the bottle (tiny print of course!).

Kelmo,

I can find rice CHEX gluten free, but not corn CHEX--unless I get a different brand of corn cereal.

Is lemon grass gluten free? It is in Lipton's lemon flavored tea.

A gluten free diet looks to CONSERVE lysine...which looks to be one of the things Bb "likes" and is depleting.

If you have the B16 arg/arg gene, you are likely already in trouble balancing arginine with lysine.

They must be IN BALANCE.

Lemon grass:

Limonene's molecular formula includes "H16"...

http://nuannaarpoq.wordpress.com/lemongrass/

Scroll down to "medicinal uses"...see vascular disorders? Bingo.

Several gluten free recipes include lemongrass.

Expensive:

Limonene and pulmonary hypertension:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7542078


Pay attention to "increased NO production"

Now...look closely at the "magic five" nutrient mixture...and arginine...

Yes, lemongrass is gluten-free.

Rice Chex was recently converted to gluten-free by removal of barley malt. Several of the other Chex cereals are being changed over to gluten-free according to the manufacturer, but be sure to look for Gluten-Free on box because the old versions of Chex are still around in many parts of the country.

So far I've only seen the gluten-free Rice Chex but my celiac groups are reporting the slow changeover to Strawberry and Chocolate Chex I think. Not exactly healthy but I keep it around for when my boyfriend visits - he's not gluten-free, I am, but I don't like to have gluten products in my house.

Marnie, what are you saying? Eating gluten-free is bad for lyme sufferers?

Iam just guessing here but there is a DOD formula used in preventing death due to poisoning from stuff like sarin andd toxin producing stuff that is only called H16 or HI6.

Limonene Limonene's molecular formula includes "H16"...
so there you go marnie and me were investigating this for a couple of years but when dod is involved you cant find much on it.

Not that we should be eating chocolate just a heads up. I was tasting a chocolate bar for a friend just to make sure it did not contain poison - that is my excuse and I am sticking to it and horrors after tasting quite a bit of the large bar I notice wheat was listed as an ingredient.

The moral of the story read your labels!

My doctor told me that basically everybody with lyme cannot handle glutan. I was at the store yesturday and relzed biagalow tea also contains glutan. Funny that this post just went up, I have to check my liptons now, I used to buy CS but they never have flavored green tea anymore.

Anyways, I also got corn chex that were glutan free yesturday because I couldnt find any other cereal at the health food store that was gluten free and didnt contain sugar. Pretty good too!

Lulu I agree with your LLMD. Gluten is hard on the spleen and we all need help with the spleen unless it is being assisted by AI drops or something.

My dentist's daughter is so allergic to gluten that even the tiniest amount makes her have a seizure. I don't know if she has LD or not but I suspect she might because I did hear part of a conversation in the waiting room that makes me suspect someone in my dentist's family might have it.

Another friend asked if my biological dentist is Lyme friendly when they were looking for a dentist. His office is great and beyond Lyme friendly.
