Other useful gluten free info In Oz

They are very active in provide one with the latest info on gluten free products, research, restaurants ect that happening in the gluten free community. You need a letter from your doc to state you a celiac/coeliac or that you need to follow a gluten free diet for health reasons if you have not been formally diagnosed with coeliac disease see link for def http://www.coeliacsociety.com.au/dis-what.html

•You can also join the coeliacaustralia@yahoo.com for free this private emailing group and not part of the coeliac society. Members share where they buy gluten free products, which products are great which are no good, recipes etc.

Diary free:

Good replacements for cow dairy products:

•Pureharvest Organic Almond Milk

•EcoMil makes a great Hazelnut milk


•Coconut milk

•Rice milk

•Soy milk

•In general I use Almond Milk or Hazelnut milk or coconut milk or soy milk in my baking to replace cow dairy products. Coconut milk are very high calories so I tend to use almond milk the most.

Replacements for Butter

•Grapeseed oil great for baked goods

•Margarine http://www.nuttelex.com.au/nuttelex-kosher/ great for baked goods

Replacements for Cow diary cheeses and yoghurt:

•Don’t know if you know if you casein or lactose intolerant or both. In some instances people that can’t have cow dairy can sheep milk products.

•Kashkaval cheese by Kebia it is sheeps milk cheese it is very handy everyday cheese and has a lovely sweat milk flavour.

•Caprakaas by Delre also a great sweet milk flavour.

•Bulgarian Feta by Kebia is also really good

•Meredith Sheep’s Milk yoghurt http://www.meredithdairy.com/allproducts.html is also very popular in our house. I can’t have any of their other blue cheeses or goats curd etc because I react to it. The yoghurt seems to work well for us.

•Organic silken tofu by King Land is excellent replacement for cream in Guacamole dip

Hestie Hope the above info makes your transition from SA to Oz a lot easier.
