We understand the struggle with a proper diagnosis, but we are not medical professionals and do not give out medical advice. Please refer to our companion site SingaporeCeliacs.com for information about symptoms, diagnosis, testing and local medical professionals.
We post information about restaurants that accommodate celiacs, but we don’t know all the restaurants. There are too many restaurants in Singapore for us the visit each one! We rely on the gluten free community to help out and speak up about what they need and tell us about their meals.
We always suggest that you call ahead or if possible stop in to speak with the manager or chef ahead of time. If you do have a great experience please let us know, we cannot eat at every establishment in the Lion City or we’d never get any work done.
No, we don’t. But we can teach you in the classes or offer one to one help in your home or ours. We maybe able to do some small catering requirements at times although we might not always be able to accommodate your request.
We occasionally do product reviews, especially if it’s something we love. The product must be celiac safe.
Maybe. We are often a little short on free time, but we are happy to help out when we can.
This website is a hub for all things gluten free relating to Singapore and to an extent South East Asia. If you feel you have a recipe and or great story to share please get in touch.
Nima is a portable food lab designed to test small samples of foods for the possible presence of gluten.
If Nima detects gluten we see a “Gluten Found” message.
Nima is not a quantitative test but has been tuned to detect at the 20 ppm range. Results will vary based on food tested, size of sample, and product usage. Nima is a screen and not an absolute – testing in one part of a dish may miss gluten elsewhere on a plate.
For reference, the United States FDA requires that any product labeled “gluten-free” contain a maximum gluten content of 20ppm. Of course, sensitivities and allergies differ between people, so it’s best to use good judgment in addition to testing samples with Nima.
