Also, gluten is a glue (really!) and it sticks in porous objects, such as plastic, wood, cast iron, stoneware, and teflon.
I totally agree with you on this one. DH has his own toaster and I have a toaster oven for Dad and I. They are in total opposite corners of the kitchen and the GF one has a cover (which is washed often) for when it is not in use. I also have a complete set of measuring spoons/cups, spoons, spatulas, etc. for his cooking. I only do GF baking after the whole kitchen has had a major clean-up and I have sanitized it as well.

Another tip is to wear a clean apron when doing specialty cooking and make sure you take it off each time you leave the kitchen. Your clothing can pick up things as well.

It depends on the oil; some "vegetable" oil comes from grain, and not all grain is gluten free. I found that out the hard way :(

Rice Dream uses a barley enzyme to process it. I'm not sure if it's the shelf-stable or the refrigerated one. One of them uses barley and the other doesn't. I just don't buy rice dream. I use Pacific Foods rice milk.

Sulfite Free allergy food list

Hi! I might be able to help...I too suffer from a pretty bad sulfite allergy. I was diagnosed about 3-4 months ago and it has been hell trying to find out what I CAN eat. There is really nothing out there but lists of things that I CAN'T eat....I have started a blog that might help you and give you some ideas...I decided I wanted to help people like me who are clueless. One of my problems is that everything pretty much has to be homemade and I am not really a cook. So check it out if you want...subscribe to it and we can all kind of stick together in this thing! Best of luck to you!

Wine NOT!

BTW: in case anyone was wondering, my symptoms are severe joint swelling, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, extreme fatigue and weakness and reynauds/circulation problems. I am 41 and a mother of 3.
