if i'm baking, does adding baking soda or corn starch null and void GF?
I've never seen baking soda or corn starch that wasn't gluten free.... corn is gluten-free, but maybe if it is processed in a facility that processes wheat, it could bother some people? I've never heard of anyone having a problem with either of these ingredients.
i assume beans and quinoa are cool, right?
what about oats? i've read mixed reviews on whether this is GF or not.
The oats must be certified gluten-free (processed in a dedicated GF facility). Most gluten-free people can tolerate GF oats; some cannot. I think the issue is with a protein in oats that is very similar to gluten. Wikipedia will tell you more. Kittee uses gluten-free oat flour a lot. If you use GF oats in your recipes, lots of gluten-free folks will be able to enjoy them.
anything you'd like to see me create? gimme some ideas.
Pizza crust, pie crust, quinoa salads, brownies. Just a few things I'm lusting after :)
