Information on where to get gluten-free food in Ottawa, Canada for celiacs and gluten-intolerant people.
For a while I had problems locating gluten-free bread crumbs. I use them mainly for roasted fish. Sesame seeds also work for fish, but that's a little different. For other uses, I found that corn meal is a good substitute. I think I used to find them at Loblaws (schar brand, www.schaer.com), but no more. I also used to find them at Rainbow Foods, but not consistently.
Nowadays I go to the Natural food pantry to get my crumbs. Recently, they've come out with their house brand of gluten-free products line that includes bread crumbs, breads and baked goodies. Also graham cracker crumbs and pie crusts. In addition, they also have a good selection of frozen breads etc., pasta, soup stocks, breakfast cereals and cookies. I just discovered O'doughs flaxseed buns, and they are yummy! My other favourite I can find there are Glutino's English muffins.

La Boite a Grains (in Gatineau) carries a good selection of GF flours. You can get a 10% discount if you buy a small crate's worth. Also the place where I get the GF beer (La Messagere). They now have a red version!

And as I mentioned, the Loblaws is another place to go for GF products. They are well stocked in breakfast cereals, pasta, soup stocks, soy sauce, and flours. No Glutino brown rice flour though. But there might be some from Bob's Red Mill brand, the products of which I'm discovering (the "Mighty tasty hot cereal" is not bad!).
