    Unexpected sources of wheat... Makes me frustrated!

    I've been trying very hard the past 6 weeks to stay away from glutinous grains -especially wheat- and then today I catch a glimpse of the ingredients label of my cough lozenges that I take for my chronic sore throat... and I see WHEAT on the ingredients list! What the #%$* is wheat doing in my cough lozenge?!?! Argh, makes me angry!

    Sorry about the rant, I knew grains are in soooo many processed foods, but this was the last place I expected wheat! Feels like I have to go through every label with a fine-tooth comb to make sure I don't un-do all my good efforts...

    Hi Crabbcakes,

    Do you know if this includes their moisturizers?

    Thanks

    Anyway, I should just toss the capsules and stick to making coffee some other way. However, I will miss the convenience the capsule machines provide . .

    Yes convenient but expensive if you work out the price per kg of coffee. Also quality is not as good.

    I buy roasted beans and grind a small amount every week and use it in a coffee press - not so convenient but better and cheaper I think.

    Good to know about the lid thing. I've considered the k-cup machine before, but only if I could use my favorite coffee in it. Not a fan of the stale, burnt crap I've tried from those things.

    I actually found wild caught, soy-free tuna at Walmart. I was shocked.

    I pretty much do all those things (breathe through my nose, gargle with salt water, neti pot etc) anyway, I'll just keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the tips everyone... And for the physics lesson

    Back to the OP...
    Yes! Me mad too!!!

    It's a pain in the ass the read every label, every time; but it is so, in this cruelly over-processed world.
    Warm salt water is a great sore throat remedy, fyi...

    ...unless they're GLUTENNING MY SALT NOW!

    I was surprised to see soy in tuna also. There are a few put there withput soy. Traders Joe has several and the name brands have some though they cost about $1.70 per can. COS has a no drain for about a $1.50 and recently I have been collecting couponsfor $0.50.

    My expensive health food grocery store started carrying ground bison, antelope, elk, wild boar, ostrich and kangaroo in the freezer. No bread crumbs. A lucky find. The ostrich and kangaroo are a little too pricey but the others were worth a try and very tasty. Perhaps you could find something similar.
