Gluten Free Goldfish? Cheez Its? Anything?
0

10 posts in this topic

Before following a gluten-free diet, I was widly obsessed by any baked snack crackers of the CHEESE variety. Since being diagnosed with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) a year and a half ago, i've made diet modifications to restrict gluten completely.

 

I've made the gluten-free Cheez its from this recipe, http://xobakingco.com/2012/12/26/gluten-free-cheese-crackers-like-cheez-its/

 

Though they are good, they take a lot of time to craft and then bake, and once again they are not the same. :(

 

Does anyone have any suggestions to something remotely close to a baked snack cheese cracker?!?!

 

So far, i've found Pirate's Booty cheddar and white cheddar varieties to be palatable. But still.. :(

Hi! I haven't found anything really close to Cheez-its or goldfish, I have stiil found some pretty great cheddar snacks! 

 

Crunchmaster's multi grain white cheddar crackers and their kids cheezy crisps are both really good!

Foodshouldtastegood's Cheddar crackers/chips are DELICIOUS.

I haven't tried these yet, but Glutino makes a cheddar cracker that looks like a ritz. I've tried the original and they were really good so I bet the cheddar would be good too! 

Blue Diamond makes a cheddar flavor of their Nut-thins that's pretty good.

 

Hope this helps a little!

The Grainless Baker's cheddar crackers are PHENOMENAL. I've only found them in

one of my local health food stores, they're an uncommon product. You might want to

try just ordering them online. They're really the best cheese cracker I've had.

Thanks all!

OMG the Grainless Baker, my mom used their graham crackers as the crust for our Xmas Chocolate Pie! I think I will order them! :) Thank for all suggestions.

Schar makes a bite sized cheese cracker that my kids love, it is the closest to Cheez-its and Goldfish crackers that I've found. I just paid $2.50/bag for them at my local market.

I was looking for Crunchmaster and Schar today because those look like the best options, but couldn't find them in 2 different stores. :(

 

The Grainless baker actually stopped making their cheddar crackers recently, note the public outcry on their facebook. 

 

I'm current eating Glutino's Cheddar crackers -- no bueno, i figured they would taste like a Ritz with miniscule taste of cheddar. :(

 

Oh well, i'll keep making the ones from that recipe and begging Annie's to make gluten-free cheddar bunnies, because HOLY MOLY, those were the bomb before I became gluten-free.

I know this is a few months old BUT at walmart and my local store, HEB, they have Van's gluten-free Cheese Crackers and they are the closest thing to gluten-free cheezits I have found.  Taste is buttery and cheesy.  I have also tried the multigrain but they tasted a little plain, need a dip or something.

Have you seen the new "Goldfish Puffs"? I know they are not a cracker, but they are tasty and gluten free. Van's also makes a good gluten free cheese cracker.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
