    Hadn't noticed at all Waffler, not superstitious and it doesn't fit with my belief system.

    It's a shame about the spelt and kamut. I did try but it doesn't suit me and i tried because i thought my intolerance would cope with it. I may try again in the future as every now and then I can manage a little bit of cake without too many ill effects and spelt is much easier to get hold of than some of the others.

    Strong wheat flour (as used in bread etc.) is very much a no-no still.

    I keep hoping things may settle down but as I know I can't go mad on oats either this isn't going to happen in a hurry. Had the blood test which unsuprisingly showed nothing. The same happened to my neighbour's daughter and she is most definitely coeliac and there is a very strong family history of auto-immune disorders.

    Hi EB - you can buy Amaranth grain from these people

    http://www.herbsgardenshealth.com/Ce...ns_&_Beans.htm

    but you would then have to 'mill' it. Couldn't find amaranth as flour anywhere except in recipes and one comment was that it doesn't keep unless in a deep freeze and the usual thing is to grind your own. I also discovered you can grow your own ! See the Real Seed Catalogue - even shows you how to separate the grain

    Thanks monkeybum and martini. I found amaranth grain at the "local" farm shop but it will be too fine to put through the coffee grinder which is my mill substitue (not the one I use for my coffee beans I hasten to add). I have a large pestle and mortar which I could try using. I also read the bit about freezing the flour on this site.

    http://www.peter-thomson.co.uk/glute...om_plants.html

    which has a lot of useful info. I liked the recipes for us site and there is a good us site called coeliac.com which has some good info on additives of various sorts.

    The dietary needs direct site looks brill. Will have to have a better look when I have more time.
