      Hey everyone--just an update (I'm super excited)--after deciding to avoid Arrowhead Mills, because they use a shared facility and because people in other posts seem to have trouble with them, I saw Rancho Gordo mentioned on a Gluten-Free Girl post about beans.

      They sell gourmet, heirloom beans, so they're definitely more expensive than other dried beans, but I'm not gonna make a fuss if I can be sure they're gluten free. At ~$5/lb (dry weight), and $8 flat shipping, it's still a lot of food-per-dollar. Double checking with the company (this is how paranoid I am, these days), I emailed:

      I placed an order--hopefully they're good!

      looks like others are reporting problems with Arrowhead Mills:;#entry517777

      from the "gluten free" marketing campaign of Arrowhead Mills' parent company, Hain Celestial:

      does anyone know of a brand of dried beans (organic or conventional) that are for sure safe?

      GOYA dry beans are cross-contaminated (isn't their documentation method great though? so useful!)
      Eden foods had their dry beans tagged as gluten free, but when I emailed them they did some investigating and realized they were cross-contaminated in processing. They changed the designation.

      I'd love to be able to buy safe dried beans--they're so much more economical!

      please help!

      careful! ingredient lists alone won't tell you if something is gluten free!!! dried beans "are just beans"; quaker oats "are just oats"--these contain gluten because they're made on shared equipment. this is known as "cross-contamination."

      Frontier Coop curry ("just spices") glutened unwary me the other day--emailing them reveals they're made in a shared facility with wheat--nothing on the label OR the website!

      anyhow, so it's not clear whether Sunsweet prunes are gluten-free--I'll email the company before I try any from the pack I just bought.

      have you considered the possibility of fructose malabsorption?

      I'm pretty sure I read it sometimes presents with Celiac.

      good luck!

      FYI I contacted Frontier Coop regarding their curry powder; they responded:

      I'm playing it safe, so I'll skip this one and maybe try one of the ones mentioned above...

      anyone know of other brands of gluten-free curry powder?

      Did you hear back from them, dinali63? Now that I look at the PG Tips bags again I am totally suspecting gluten from the glue used to seal them! I just sent an email and will post if I hear back.

      I've been having some problems of late as well, and I recently have been drinking some of this tea, and a tea called Egyptian Licorice by brand Yogi Teas (delicious, by the way, assuming it is gluten-free, as other posts seem to indicate, at least according to the company...)
