Hi I am posting for a lady on a mom board I belong. She has just found out that her Daughter is allergic to Egg & Wheat. I can help her with the Egg but I don't know much about the Wheat...

So if any of you are dealing with a wheat allergy please share what you can.

I did give her a label reading card but she needs fast help with products like bread, crackers, cookies & such

Please post attached to this post a list of Wheat free products that you use & where you have found them (store)

Thanks So Much for any Help

Here is a good site for cooking and baking without wheat [url="http://www.cookingglutenfree.com/breads.htm"]http://www.cookingglutenfree.com/breads.htm[/url]
My son tested positive for wheat at his last allergy tests and we looked into eliminating wheat. However, he has never actually reacted to wheat and he has eaten it everyday for six years. We chose to cut down but not eliminate unless he does eventually react.
Rye crispbread is usually wheat free but we could only find imported stuff. We don't trust imported because of the labelling requirements. Rice cakes, rice bread... those are safe alternatives. Our Superstore sells Rice Bread for 5 times the price of wheat bread. It is a very heavy bread but I suppose one would get used to it.
Hope that helps somewhat!

Frookies makes a wheat free cookies - I have seen them at Whole Foods. They are not nut free though and I don't know about the egg either.

We are pn/tn, rice,egg, wheat,oat and barley free.
glutino.com is the only bread that we have found that fulfills our needs. I absolutely will not have anything in the house that isn't positively pn/tn free.
We use a lot of Quinoa products for rice and pasta substitutes found in local grocery stores in health food section. We bake a lot with sorghum. And we love enjoylifefoods.com cookies and other products. Your friend has a lot more options since she can have rice but please warn her that most glutn free foods have some possibility of pn/tn contamination so she must call each company. Missroben.com (her own products only) are also very good. Storm is coming so have to shut off computer. Good luck.
