Quaker Rice Cakes

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to have incorrect or outdated info.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.

Myrna

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.ca/new_index_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?

The original posts are 9 years old! The last few are 3 years old! Products can change sooooo much in that amount of time. There are discussions of rice cakes that are just a few days or weeks old. Those would be more likely to be accurate.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
