Matcha Green Tea | Triumph Dining

matchaI have a new indulgence: Matcha Green Tea. To be honest it’s not exactly a NEW discovery. I can remember drinking green tea milk shakes as a kid at our favorite Japanese restaurant or ordering green tea mochi for dessert. The Starbuck’s Green Tea Frappuccino is a tempting coffee-free treat but not necessarily gluten free so it’s not really an option.

Then I discovered powdered Matcha at my favorite tea store, Adagio Teas. According to the Adagio Teas website, Matcha is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create Matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves and are carefully ground in granite mills until they become powder. Instead of soaking the leaves and drinking an infusion of tea you are essentially consuming the entire tea leaf. Because of this process, you are getting more antioxidant benefits and the “high” from green tea caffeine is released in a more even distribution. Click to continue reading »

Will an Infant’s Diet Change their Risk of Celiac Disease? | Triumph Dining

imagesRecent studies show that a newborn’s risk of developing celiac disease isn’t reduced by breastfeeding. Nor will delaying the introduction of gluten to an infant’s diet help prevent celiac disease.

In the first study, 707 Italian infants with family history of celiac disease were randomly assigned to 2 groups; one in which children
began eating foods with gluten at 6 months and another where they waited until their first birthday before eating gluten. After following the children for 5 years, researchers concluded that postponing the introduction of gluten had no effect on a child’s long-term risk of developing celiac disease. Although the onset of celiac disease was delayed, breastfeeding did not affect the development of celiac disease either way. Click to continue reading »

San-J | Triumph Dining Product Review

file_6_3I use soy sauce a lot when cooking. When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease and discovered that most soy sauces contain wheat, I was worried that my favorite meals would never be the same again. San-J was the first company I came across who made gluten-free soy and I’ve been a big fan ever since. Their Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce completes Sushi Sunday and their Sweet and Tangy Cooking Sauce allows me to make home-made sweet and sour chicken again! They have recently released a line of Japanese-style instant soups.

The soups come in two flavors – Gluten-Free White Miso and Gluten-Free Wakame -and are ready simply by adding boiling water. As with all of San J’s gluten-free products, this new line of soups is Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO). It’s another safe product that’s great for traveling and is quick and convenient! Click to continue reading »
