Ya know,

after 8 years, I still haven't figured out why wheat is in regular soy sauce...its not a thickening agent, it doesn't lend a flavor, not a preserative....

Absolutely no reason I can think of why Soy Sauce should have wheat as the second ingredient (its not a big deal, I buy the wheat free stuff)...

Grrrrrrrrrrr......

So in the U.S., don't worry about the sizes for these bars, but in Canada, don't eat the small Snickers. It's the same with Smarties. Smarties in the U.S. are gluten-free, but in Canada they contain gluten. WHY???????????
GGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Karen


Weird. I was at Walmart picking up some M&M's and looked at the Snickers fun size, because for some reason I thought that NO Snickers in Canada were gluten-free and oddly enough, I couldn't find anything suspicious on the fun size snickers. Of course, it's perfectly possible and even probable, that the second ingredient was wheat flour and I just didn't see it. You know, when you read something over and over and it's not until after you buy it, and you catch it on the label out of the corner of your eye.

And Karen, re: the Smarties. I'm pretty sure the U.S. doesn't have Nestle Smarties. U.S. smarties are Canadian "Rockets". You know the ones I mean? Little circles of sugar wrapped in cellophane. Rockets are gluten-free and M&Ms are superior to smarties anyway, so no loss.

NO! I'm not looking for a debate! M&Ms are better and that's that! (I have to admit, my husband would side with you on the whole smartie/m&m thing unless they are peanut m&m's and then he'd pick the Ms.)

I believe it's part of the fermentation process - a starch source. It's a matter of production.

As far as that goes, I believe that is why celiac's are only supposed to have American wines and not European wines. I believe that our labeling laws are alot stricter then over in Europe. I don know for sure, but I have been told that.

Just a thought <_<

Sour cream!

Yep... my newly diagnosed daughter pointed out to me that the sour cream I'd been enjoying had modified food starch! You could have knocked me over with a feather!!

Regular, full fat, doesn't contain MFS, but some brands of the lite sour cream do... go figure!!



Not all modified food starch contains gluten - but if it doesn't specify, then assume it is not safe. I have read that most of the times in the US if it says modified food starch, it is more than likely derived from corn. But........if it doesn't say specifically, and I cannot verify it, then I don't eat it.

I think this one is the strangest I've seen in a while-

If you order an Omelette at IHOP, you will get glutened even if you have it specially prepared in a clean separate pan.

They add pancake batter to their omelettes - they say it makes them fluffier


OMG-My boyfriend and I almost ate at IHOP tonight, and if we were, I was going to have an omelette....thank goodness we played it cheap and ate at home!! :o

westsoy soymilk

candies (like see's)

chicken broth

frozen foods, like veggie burgers (most brands)

dry roasted nuts (they give them out on an airplane!)

candy corn (some brands)

certain cheeses, meats (like deli)

basically any food that it seems like wouldnt need gluten for any purposes... I mean if it can taste just as good w/o the gluten, why put it in?!

I'm confused about the snickers thing though- i thought the fun size were gluten-free in US?? Am i wrong? And what about the minis? great topic by the way- interesting and so useful!!!




When my mom goes food shopping and walks past the deli counter the personnell usually run away <_< ( that was the first couple of times anyway). Anytime we order lunch meat the slicer had to be cleaned, they used to get so mad at us, I kind of felt guilty. But now they know us and they keep a dedicated food allergy slicer for us. It is great, I believe that they do cut lettuce on it in the morning, but hey its still gluten-free :D

Brachs candy corn does contain gluten but I believe that one of the cheaper brands does not. I tryed it this past Halloween and it def. tasted really different. I wonder what gluten does to canycorn that makes it so good. <_<

Yes, Nathan's.... I hate Nathan's. What the &%&^* do they need wheat in Hot Dogs for??? Killed my laid back attitude towards bbqs in the summer. We had a Bon fire a few weeks ago, and my friend brought those freaking Nathan's. I was like, "WHOA!"... Keep 'em offa the grill till my kid gets a Boar's Head hot dog done up. Just really burns me up. <_<


Ok...lemme get this straight....Nathans bad......are ballpark hotdogs ok? Oh....and, soy sauce, what brands are gluten free, and do I have to special order them? I'm new at this. I'm having trouble with trusting salad dressings also, if someone comes across a yummy ranch dressing, please let me know. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHY IS SALAD DRESSING GLUTENED? Can't a girl get a break?

As far as I know, Nathan's is the only hotdog that has wheat. For soy sauce I would say most of us use San-J Wheat Free Tamari. You can find it at any supermarket, but it may be in the organic isle rather than where the other soy sauces are. I know La Choy is also gluten-free, but most people tend not to like that.

For salad dressings, I really like Marie's parmesan ranch and creamy italian garlic. I recently had Ken's buttermilk ranch which I really liked. Although my favorite ranch dressing is the one at Outback :)

gluten-free candy that you eat all the time, like Snickers, but the snack size is not gluten-free.


Actually, snack size Snickers ARE gluten-free. My DD eats them all the time. It's the snack/fun size Hershey bars that are not gluten free.

But I agree, the snack size thing is a booger.

The most annoying non-gluten-free foods on the entire planet for me are Kellogg's cereal. There does not NEED to be barley malt in EVERY SINGLE FREAKIN' ONE!

Twizzlers have wheat for elasticity, not just thickening. Either way, it's stooooopid.

Soy sauce - La Choy (although some don't like it). Kroger brand is also.

Salad Dressing - Kraft will label any gluten so find a Kraft brand you like. Also, Annie's makes salad dressing that is gluten-free and will be marked on the label (not all are gluten-free so you have to check on the back).

We make the Hidden Valley Ranch packets for ranch dip and dressing. It has MSG though, so it's not like it's GOOD for you or anything. :rolleyes:

I have seen wheat in charcoal. Wheat is in some flavors of ice cream.
