Hi everyone,
Just to let you know that I got my results on Tuesday and I do have coeliac disease.
If anyone can give me any advise as to the best brands I would be really greatful. I've tried a few things and most of them so far are ok, but if anyone could tell me the best bread to go for that would be great  :)

The best rice pasta I know of is Tinkyada. There's also Thai Noodles made from rice my Brother likes (I haven't tried them yet).

Bread: That's a difficult one...the best bread I'd had was before I went gluten free and was making my own at home with a bread machine. There are some gluten-free bread mixes you can try; my Mom likes one she made but I don't remember what the name of the product or brand was.

I really like noodles made from quinoa, a gluten-free grain.  I find them at my local Whole Foods Market (they have a lot of GF pasta, but I like the quinoa noodles, they hold together really well, unlike the rice and corn noodles I've tried). 
I was tested for Celiac, got a negative blood test, still waiting for results of upper GI endoscopy.  I had all the classic symptoms as a kid, but then "grew out of it" and happily ate all the grains I wanted until a few months ago when I developed colitis.  Now I'm wondering if I really had Celiac all along and just paved my way to other problems.  Ugh.

I second zucchini's vote for quinoa pasta. best I have found hands down. And I serve it to non-GF guests all the time and no one has any issues with them, unlike rice pasta.

The best bread I have found by far for store bought is Udi's. I had completely given up on pre-made store bought breads before this one- they were all terrible. I was nervous about trying it, but had read enough comments about how fantastic it was to be willing to fork over the $4.99 to give it a try. It was worth every penny!! For a mix that I bake myself at home, I prefer Pamela's. Bob's Red Mill is pretty good as well. I haven't tried to make my own from scratch yet.

My favorite bread it Katz Gluten Free. Not sure if it is available to you where you live. You can go to their website: and request a free sample box of their baked goods. I like this bread better than the Udi bread because it is moist and fluffy and has a sweet nutty flavor. Try the challah one - it is the best. I order a bunch at a time online so I always have it available in my freezer.

The quinoa pasta is delicious - Even my DH eats it and thinks it tastes just as good as regular pasta.

I also buy the Udi bagels. I keep 4 or 5 packages in the freezer and take out one each morning in a baggie to work. They are delicious fresh or toasted.
