Reminder - Greater North Raleigh Celiac Support Group Meeting

Just a friendly reminder about this month's Greater North Raleigh Celiac Support Group meeting. The meeting is Thursday, February 18th at 7pm at Rex Hospital. This month, we'll have several visitors; representatives from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture have requested to return to the February meeting to provide an update on the ongoing saga of fraudulent Gluten Free food selling by Great Specialty Products.  Click here to read about this case.  We will also have Hajo from Custom Choice Cereal at the meeting to speak about his Gluten Free custom cereal company and to provide some samples of his tasty, safe product.  Read my review of Custom Choice Cereal here.  Don't forget to submit your GFR T-shirt design ideas to receive a 20% off your Custom Choice Cereal order (valid until end of February).

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT MARCH MEETING - Our March 18th meeting will be held at Rosie's Plate, 701 N. Person St, Raleigh, 27604. Rose is planning a tour and tasting for us and wants to be sure she has enough of everything, including chairs! We will need an RSVP, by March 1st. Please let Pat Berger know by e-mail or at our meeting this week.

Please email Pat Berger to request more information about the group or if you are interested in attending this month's meeting.

Thanks Zach. Do you know if there's been any progress in finding out the ingredients of GSP's stuff?

Lee, if you look at this post (http://glutenfreeraleigh.blogspot.com/2010/01/state-of-north-carolina-bread-sold-as.html) at the 1/26 update, you'll see the ingredients statement and product list given to me by Paul Seelig.

According to the lawsuit, Paul has not proven that he makes his own products or that the ingredients list is true. From everything I've seen, Paul was buying regular wheat bread and reselling as GF.

I was just wondering if we knew what the REAL ingredients were yet. Ugh.

Do you know if the other things were all regular wheat, too? Like cookies, bagels, etc?
