RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsHot Dogs That Are Also Casein Free?I need to know in a hurry so does anybody know of hot dogs that are gluten-free & CF? I've heard Hebrew National but I figured that could be outdated so I was just looking for what people use that have to adhere to both of those things

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesCertified gluten-free Oats QuestionI know that about 10-15% of Celiac's react to gluten-free oats because of the avenin in it...my question is, is the reaction different than a gluten one? My gluten reactions are usually very neuro/mental so if the avenin reaction is a different kind of reaction, then I wouldn't mind taking the risk because there's been some products recently that have certified gluten-free oats that I've been wanting to try

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsDisturbing Message From KraftLike a lot of you, I've always been one to trust in Kraft but this message I got earlier surprised me. I've been feeling terrible recently and the ONLY thing I've had differently is Kraft BBQ sauce. They all say "vinegar" but Kraft says that their "vinegar" is distilled vinegar which means it could be from wheat (and I'm one of the sensitive ones) so I decided to call and ask.
The guy asked me for the bar code of a sauce, I gave him a recent one and he said the vinegar is fine but "there's gluten containing ingredients in the spices"...it's not like he said there COULD be in the typical CYA response, he actually said the spices contained gluten...there's nothing suspicious on the label, your typical BBQ sauce, but I even double checked with him and he said it was coming up as containing gluten in some of the ingredients...I've seen a LOT of gossip and talk about Kraft on the delphi board recently and didn't really think much of it but that surprises me
Maybe it's just this BBQ sauce, maybe it's others too, but for somebody to firmly say that it contains gluten, after I give him the bar code and he looks it up and everything, surprises me.
I know about the whole "we can't guarantee our sources etc etc" but that's a whole different story, this is actually coming up as not gluten-free and there's nothing on the label about it.
I don't really know what to make of it but I guess be careful.

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesVinegar QuestionI've read MANY times on here and other places that when something says "Vinegar", it HAS to (legally, it seemed) be "Apple Cider Vinegar"...is that not true? because on Kraft's website this is what it says: "Vinegar listed in the ingredient statement of Kraft products means distilled vinegar is used. Per our ingredient suppliers, the distilled vinegar we use does not contain gluten."
many people have always said that if it's distilled vinegar, it HAS to say distilled before it but is that now the case now or something?

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsAnybody Use Rice Expressions?it's a brand that's has boxes of frozen rice (3 packets in a box: brown, white, jasmine and I think a pilaf)
anyways, I've used their rice for a VERY long time without any problem but when getting a recent box, I noticed that allergen statement was gone (before it said 'processed in a facility that uses milk and soy as minor ingredients')...I also noticed that the "marketed by:" address was a different one
I've e-mailed the company and they're very slow so I was just wondering if anybody has had a recent box without a problem
the mixture of that allergen statement being gone AND a different marketed by address at the same time kind of caught me off guard, I guess it worries me that it might be made in a different facility now which could change everything

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsSweet Baby Rays - Distilled Vinegar QuestionI was wondering if any of you knew the source of the vinegar because I'm one of the sensitive ones who reacts sometimes to a vinegar/alcohol even when distilled...so if somebody ALSO is sensitive and hasn't had an issue, or knows the source, let me know (already e-mailed and such)
I noticed quite a few of their sauces used to say Vinegar and now say Distilled Vinegar and obviously some of us have issues still if it's from a wheat source so I hope it's fine

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsUdi's Cinnamon Rollsanybody notice the difference with them? on the package I got recently, it there was a "now softer" logo on the package and sure enough, they're a lot better
before it felt like they could be in the microwave for minutes and still be hard, these are soft are like 30 seconds and they actually STAY very soft while you're eating them...much better than before

RPM added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsCigars?I like the occasional cigar and I've only seen them mentioned once or twice on here (with people usually saying that they're fine)...I like to be cautious though so if there's any that you have with no problem, post it here (a lot of those type of companies seem to never reply to e-mails and I have no phone at the moment)...thanks!
