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

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

    • Swanson Chicken In A Can
      The original post from here is 8 years old and the product information is likely outdated.  I would contact manufacturer on any info over a year or so old, but even then things can change.
    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Have you subscribed to gluten free watchdog? They have some great test results and info on what tests they do and why.  If you want specific items to be tested and will fund it, you may contact them to see if you can help the community as a whole.
    • Help understanding test results??
      I am a 20 year old female. I recently had some blood work done to test for celiac disease.  The ref. range for all of the following is 0 -- 14.9 U/mL: Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGA = <0.5 Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGG= <0.8 Deaminated Gliadin PEP IGA= 1.3 Deamninates Gliadin PEP IGG= 242.9  Yes I have a follow up appointment with a gastroenterologist because the last panel was high. I am just hoping that someone can explain the results in a way that is easier for me to understand. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    • I got WELL!!
      manasota, When I first was diagnosed with Celaic disease I was beginning to have Thyroid problems.  But I began studying up fortifying myself with knowledge which led me to Chris Kresser's site where he has a free book on Thyroid disorders it might be worth downloading it and reading it (I have not) but read some of his blog posts. I think of it like one of my fellow blogger's I follow Susan Hughes Healthy by Nature quoting when she says "I find the human body to be pretty amazing. It is capable of healing itself when given the proper tools to do so. These “tools” include nutrients, thoughts, rest, among other things – all dependent, to a degree, on the unique needs of the individual. Many times proof of this incredible healing capacity of the body is backed only by anecdotal evidence, which, no matter how valid, lacks the respect that formal research supporting this notion would receive." With that in mind consider what I have learned on my journey is all I ask. I will share what has made me feel better. Chris Kresser (I don't remember why) says selenium first then Iodine for thyroid problems and a lot of these fatigue issues can be tied to your thyroid. Having said that my thyroid is better by that I mean I no longer need meds for my thyroid and my chronic fatigue is better. I find two or three brazil nuts a day will give you most of the selenium your thyrorid needs.  Find a Kelp supplement for a good source of Iodine or just start putting idoine (betadine) from the drug store on your legs each night until it stains you in the morning then you know your body has enough Iodine since it readily absorbed when it lingers on the skin for more than 12 hours you have enough iodine. For the Chronic Fatigue I can not over emphasize Magnesium CITRATE in divided doses 3 to 4 times (with each meal and at bed time).  Great book on the subject called "the Magnesium Miracle".  Make sure it is a 100% Citrate though or your body will have time absorbing it. Your energy will really perk up.  Muscle cramps will improve.  Restful dreams (if you can't remember when you last dreamed) will come vividly. Search for the posterboy on this site if you want to read all my posts and see my profile if you want to know what other vitamin's or minerals I have taken to help me "get well". Good luck on your journey.  Read the topic "Still Sick 1 year after diagnosis" for  a summary of other things I have done by the poster ryan7194. Provided here for easy reference **** This is not medical advice and should not be considered such. Results may vary. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical regimen. 2 Timothy 2:7 and 2 Cor 1: 3,4 Posterboy,
    • Stomach sore from eating gluten free foods?
      I agree.  Since the cookie was gluten free, your body was reacting to something else.  I also think it's important to not self-diagnose/test because even if you feel better without gluten, you don't know if you are celiac or just have an intolerance to gluten and/or wheat. It's better to go through the testing.
