You will not BELIEVE the crap filled email I recieved from quaker about their mini rice cakes....take a look at this. I REALLY think companies need to be held accountable for their products. Isn't that what the labeling law (that was passed) is all about...how can they get away with sending out answers like this!! GRRRRRRR

Hello Jessica:

Thanks for your e-mail about Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks.

Due to many factors, we have not been able to respond to your concern regarding
Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks as promptly as we would wish. Please
accept our apologies.

We rely on outside suppliers for the flavorings used in our products. It is an
industry-wide practice to manufacture a variety of products in same plant or on
shared equipment. The Food & Drug Adminstration requires all food manufacturers
and ingredient suppliers to follow careful guidelines, called Good Manufacturing
Practices, for cleaning equipment. Despite these practices we are unable to
guarantee that a small amount of this ingredient is not present in the finished
product. No allergen-free lists are available due to the extensive product line
and number of ingredient suppliers.

We update allergen information on a regular basis and would not want consumers
to have incorrect or outdated info.

We hope this information is helpful. Your interest in our products is
appreciated.

Hello Amy:

Thanks for your OatMail about Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks.

We understand that individuals sensitive to gluten cannot digest even trace amounts of gluten.  Since so many of our products contain grain ingredients and many products are made in the same facility, we cannot guarantee that any particular product is entirely free of gluten.  Although we would like to help you find products that meet your special dietary needs, we are not able to recommend any of our products.

We hope this information is helpful.

You called about Quaker Mini Rice Cakes....when I called about the normal-sized ones, they said that ALL brands are gluten-free (white cheddar, peanut butter, buttered popcorn, etc.).

Hello, B)

While I was shopping I came up to one of the products that are in the diet section.
It was "Quaker Rice Cakes" and "Quaker Corn Cakes".. As I read through the ingredients I found nothing that indicates that it is gluten-free, although it did not say so... <_<

I visited their website to ask them about the product, and only people in Canada and the States where to comment only..Can anyone who lives there ask them and tell me as soon as possible.. I wanted to ask them a couple of things:

~~ The ingredient "Chocolate liquor", where is it from??
(since my health state doesn't allow me to take any alcohol intake)

~~ Is their product gluten-free and Kosher?

I wonder if anyone could help me!

Thnx in Advance,

I'm new to the celiac stuff, but I felt I should register to comment on this one.

After calling Quaker and getting the usual "the product is not made with wheat, barley, or rye BUT it is not tested- so it might not be gluten free"...
I read this post. I was frustrated and hungry... so since someone here said she'd had no issues with the Quakes, I went ahead and ate them. (Cheddar)

Out of the 4 or 5 months that I've been gluten free... I've NEVER been so sick. In fact, this was my first real issue.
The Quakes were the only thing I've eaten different from my usual diet, so I can only assume they were the cause of this last 3 days of hell. Hopefully I can save someone the trouble.

These posts were from 2004 so maybe the ingredients have changed or it was a different product. Manufacturers do change their recipes often and im sure things have changed in the last 6 years...I eat lundbergs wild rice cakes and they are yummy and gluten free for sure;)

They have a bunch of regular sized cakes that are gluten-free. They say gluten-free above the nutritional information on the package. If it does NOT say "gluten-free", they will not guarantee it to be gluten-free-per company statement.

I want to add that this is a recent development. You may still find old stock on the shelves so check the packaging. I also want to reiterate that it only applies to the REGULAR sized rice cakes not the little snacky ones.

I eat RiceWorks Brown Rice snacks instead of Quaker Rice Cakes... they are quite expensive here (almost $4/bag!!) so I tend to only buy them when they are on sale. They are delicious and say gluten-free, vegan-friendly, whole grain, etc. right on the bag :) http://www.riceworks...dex_Canada.html Yum!

I bought some and ate them a few weeks and got sick so I'll avoid it. Where can you buy Mother's rice cakes?
