Celiac Disease Awareness month fun fact #9

If you have celiac disease, you should have your own designated condiments.

If I have a tub of margarine & a family member is making regular toast and gets bread crumbs in the margarine, it is contaminated. Same goes for peanutbutter, mayo, cream cheese...anything in a tub that people may double dip into.

For convenience , try to buy squeeze bottles of condiments when you can. Always label your designated gluten free items & show family members which is yours. I suggest buying a different brand, so there won't be any accidental cross contamination.

  1. I tell my roommates this all the time! I tell them if they use my stuff scoop some into a bowl with a clean spoon! I had to give them a brand new jar of good mayo a few days ago because i opened it up and it was full of bread crumbs! I had only used it once!
