PostSubject: Macaroni and Cheese   Tue Dec 11, 2007 4:12 pm

I am a Mac 'n' Cheese connoisseur from way back. I don't know if this comes from the region I lived in or what, there is just something so comforting about Mac and cheese to me.This was one of the things I dreaded giving up when I found out I had CD. So I have been striving to find some alternatives. This thread will be used to post any and all those that are GF and Kosher ( and if organic too, what a blessing! )


So lets start with this one, my DH actually found this while at the market, not looking for it, but he now seems to enjoy finding stuff I can eat, how endearing, huh? Smile

So he came home with this and I tried it and it's not mine, but it will do in a pinch and great for Passover too. Copying right off the box:

* Annatto comes from many sources and has been on some no-no lists for Celiacs.

Since Mac and Cheese can be made with cheese and butter and margarine containing annatto please read this:

Quote :
"annatto color: A coloring agent derived from the seeds of the Achiote,
also known as the Lipstick tree (Bixa orellana), it is often used in
cheese but also in many other orange-colored foods. The seed itself is
unlikely to contain any gluten, it is the processing of the seed
into a colorant that causes concern as it appears to use alcohol in the
process. There is also suspicion that caramel color may be included in
the annatto colorant.
Anecdotal evidence has some celiacs
reacting to foods with annatto color in them but this may be a
non-celiac reaction to the annatto itself."

Quote :
there about 8 different kinds of annatto, but almost 100% of annatto
coloring in the US is imported and extracted at the source- which means
most of it is produced in peru and the carribbean regions. one of them
is oil soluble annatto. to extract oil soluble annatto coloring,
vegetable oils (sometimes containting mono and diglycerides)
are used. oil soluble is used in products with a high oil content, like
butter, margerine, etc. so it may be that water soluble annatto
coloring (which uses soium or potassium hydroxide for extraction) may
be okay, while oil soluble may not be.

See this article here

PostSubject: Pastato - Review   Thu Apr 03, 2008 6:52 pm

PC typing This is one I picked up after reading another GF sites recommendation. Now granted it was from a mother about what her child liked, so I have to consider that, but it wasn't as good as I thought it might be, but not bad.

I have to say that their box does nothing to make you want to think it's going to be very good. It looks like something from the 70's, brown and with a brown orangatan? looking over it ( do they like Mac and cheese?confused ) And the plate it sits on is also orange which tends to fade out the mac and cheese on it, which has way too much chopped parsely on it. So don't look at the box if you are really in the mood for good mac and cheese.

I cooked it according to instructions, 4 minutes? but needed to let it go much longer, another 5-6, then it was al dente. I drained and put some butter and cream in the pot and mixed in the cheese packet to taste and see, it wasn't very cheesy so I added more cream, and some laughing cow, cut up and stirred until melted and mixed in , then added the pasta back in. I topped it with some green onions and it wasn't bad. The pasta was fairly good, it didn't fall apart like some do, so that gets high points, but compared to say, Wacky Mac overall, it doesn't quite reach that level.

This is a potato flour and rice pasta so that may be the difference.

It does have a picture of a orangatan on the back of the box and a little bio on it, fun for kids.

Other language on box - French


Not bad to have on hand, but don't go out of your way to procure it.

Kosher certification is Kashrut Council of Canada
