Mahatma Rice?

Someone on this board mentioned before that Mahatma Saffron rice is gluten-free. I searched their website and could not find this referenced anywhere. So, I sent them an e-mail asking what products were gluten-free. I received a packet in the mail from them yesterday thanking me for inquiring about their products, and that they hoped that the packet they sent to me answered my questions. They even enclosed coupons and some great recipes! Sounds great, huh? Well, nowhere in the information that they sent me, is there any reference to ingredients, or anything about whether their products are gluten-free or not.

Has anyone received confirmation from them? The company name is Riviana Foods. I do have their phone # now, so I will call them tomorrow, but I was just curious if anyone has received anything official from them.

I have not contacted this company. However, I did find out that some of their products are gluten-free from the delphi forum. This is what I found there.

I finally got around to calling them. The person that I talked to had the list right in front of them as she had just got off the phone with another celiac! Here is what she told me:'

Gluten Free Mix - Saffron Yellow (but NOT THE SPICY SAFFRON!)

This was the only one that I really wanted to know about. I used to eat it all the time before going gluten-free - it is really good! There were a couple of other plain rices that were gluten free but I didn't write them down - sorry.

Before she got to the gluten-free products, she read off the ones that do contain gluten. The following products are not safe:

NOT GLUTEN FREE:

Beef

Black Beans

Chicken

Pilaf

Red Beans

Spicy Saffron

MiamiMom,

Recipes change frequently. This thread is almost two years old, so it's possible that the website you found is more up-to-date. Any info should be double checked, and the older it is, the less reliable it is. :(

Thanks-- I'm still learning, and I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't even look at the dates... Ugh!

Gotta be more careful!

Here is the current allergen information from mahatma rice's official website - the yellow rice mix IS still gluten free, but not the spicy mix.
