Aldi's Foods!

I was there yesterday and found a brand called Asia. They have rice noodles and rices that list gluten free right on the back and the front says suitable for vegetarians and gluten free! I was so excited! Then I found that several of their Grandessa fries and other frozen items had gluten-free on them! I didn't have a lot of time but am wondering if more things have gluten-free on them? Just wanted to share this discovery!

That is so cool! Thanks for sharing. I don't know why I don't shop at Aldi's more that I do, it's just a little ways down the street from Wal-Mart in my town. I will make a mental note to start shopping there more.

I see that you live in MO. I thought that maybe you were in Hanover, PA. Aldi's is right down the street from Wal-Mart there too. ;)

I've sent Aldi two lists of products to verify if they are gluten-free or not and so far this is what I've gotten back

1)

We would like to assure you that there is no gluten/wheat product or byproducts in any of our canned vegetables, which would include Happy Harvest Whole, Diced, and Stewed tomatoes, Natures Nectar tomato juice, and Happy Harvest Cut and French style green beans.

Sincerely,

Connie Gast

The Beckman and Gast Co.

2)

We have been notified by Aldi Inc. concerning your nutritional inquiry on the Happy Harvest frozen vegetables. We have been identified as the supplier of these products.

All of the plain Happy Harvest vegetables (broccoli cuts, cut corn, corn on the cob, peas, broccoli stir fry and California blend) are both gluten and wheat free.

We value you as a loyal Aldi consumer and appreciate your concern.

Sincerely,

Chad

consumer Relations Analyst Birds Eye Foods

3)

Thank you for your letter inquiring about gluten in Aldi's Toasty Puffs Miniature Marshmallows.

This product contains no gluten or alcohol derived from wheat, either as an ingredient or processing aid and is casein free. Our marshmallow ingredients are corn based. Our product contains no milk, eggs, or peanuts, either as an ingredient or processing aid. The flavoring used in our marshmallows is a blend of natural and artificial vanilla. Blue dye is used as a "whitening" agent to enhance the whiteness of the marshmallows: it is less than 1% of the ingredients.

We only manufacture marshmallows so there is no possibility of cross contamination from other products.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your concern.

Sincerely,

Betty Tarzian

Consumer Affairs Doumak

(this company also makes Fireside Marshmallows, Campfire marshmallows and Rocky Mountain Marshmallows)

responses I received today

1) We are in receipt of your inquiry asking whether Happy Farms Cheese/Cream Cheese is gluten free.

We do not intentionally add gluten to our products. However, we don't screen our ingredients to insure they don't have an incidental amount of gluten either. Therefore, we do not guarantee our products are gluten free.

We are sorry we cannot provide the assurance necessary to achieve a gluten free status.

Sincerely,

Lori Piton, Consumer Affairs Schreiber Foods, Inc

2) We are the company which manufactures the Sweet Harvest brown and powdered sugars that are sold at the Aldi stores in your area. We received a copy of your letter to Aldi inquiring about the Gluten status of a variety of products.

We can confirm that the Sweet Harvest brown and powered sugars are Gluten Free. If you need any additional information please feel free to contact us.

Regards,

Stephen Ward, Quality Assurance Manager US Sugar

3) Thank you for takinig the time to contact Aldi about our Brach's Chazoo Fruit Snacks. We do appreciate your inquiry about the gluten status of this product. I regret to inform you that we do not consider any of our products gluten free at this time.

Thanks again for contacting Aldi.

Yours truly,

Oh, and I don't have a typed response for this one because I don't know what I did with the letter, the Grandessa Frozen Fruit Bars are gluten-free... I like the strawberry ones, they also have a Pina Colada flavor, Caribbean Fruit Mix and Lime Pineapple

most of their products even if they have the same "brand" label ie: Fit-N-Active, are actually made by at least several different manufacturers. What they suggest you do is write down the particular items you are interested in and send a letter to Aldi's headquarters... they will forward your request for info on to the different manufacturers who will in turn answer your letter directly. That's what I did!

Just send your requests to

Aldi Inc.

Batavia, IL 60510-1477

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
