Glutton Free Products

Postby Undine » Mon, 02 Mar 2009 4:38 am

Are Glutton Free products available in Singapore - Specifically breads. I have a wheat intolerance (regrettably Australian wheat in particular) and in Australia & Europe there are ample Glutton Free products.. Any suggestions within Singapore

I'm sure you mean gluten?? Yes, you can get gluten free products at a variety of health food stores and in certain markets like Tanglin. Try Brown Rice Paradise and the one in the basement of Great World City. There will be others that know more about this than me...

For freshly baked gluten free breads - you can try any of the Cedele bakery/restaurants (Tanglin Mall, Wheelock, Great World City & Raffles City). For gluten free products you may have to look around the shelves at the non-specialty grocery stores - but you will definitely find them at the specialty organic/vegetarian shops: Brown Rice Paradise, Supernature, Organic Hut, Vitakids and like R.N.T mentioned the shop in the basement of Great World City. Cedele offers gluten free dining and also check out the Fortune Centre on Middle/Bencoolen street. This is a haven for local vegan fare (at hawker stall prices!)

Nah, not with her. She is genetically engineered to drive a vehicle . . . you, being Asian, clearly are not. That's the law!







(Plus, you are more attractive . . . but can't drive)

Ah, but that's as it should be. We are made to be admired and adored, and you non-Asians are made to drive us around. :cool:

OMG - I cannot believe I typed Glutton - rather than Gluten.. You can tell it is a query for a family member - rather than me.. Apologies and thanks for the information above - as well as the bollocking too. Thanks

Hey Undine, I'm sorry for not saying anything about gluten-free products on this thread, simply because I know little about it. Just wanted to clarify that it was not you I was bollocking - just having some fun with the other regulars. You're not the only one who makes spelling errors here - most others do though only you and Vaucluse have admitted it! :)

Since Singapore prides itself on it's passion for food -- a glutton free food really would be an eye opener!

On a serious note: coeliac disease is not really an Asian problem, but the good new is ( :roll: ) Australians are being diagnosed with it in droves. So there are products here that are gluten free, a lot of which come from down under. You can though, eat yourself sick with gluten free pastas, cookies, snacks -- so they are not yet glutton free.

Ah, glutton for gluten gives a glimmer of glee. Some may glower, but me I'm just glad. :)
