Bob Evan's Brand Products (In Stores)

6 posts in this topic

I have been eating Bob Evan's Mashed Potatoes thinking nothing of it because on the allergy list it does not say anything about wheat. It has in bold....

allergens: milk

Well, I was sick and couldn't figure this out. So I decided to check everything in the house that I had eaten to find out what was causing it.

Lo and behold the Bob Evan's mashed potatoes had in their ingredient list in regular (blending with the others) list wheat.

WHY DID THEY NOT PUT THAT IN THE ALLERGEN AREA THEN?!? Grrrrr. It was my fault for not checking the ingredients but me being so trusting figured they would play it safe since the milk was in the allergen list and trusted them to put wheat there too.

Lesson Learned: Even if it is not in the allergen list, check ingredients.

Two thumbs down for Bob Evan's not posting that with the allergens however. Never again.

Packaged foods are the same way, the manufactorer is allowed to list the ingredient "buried" in the ingredient list, or in an allergen statement at the end, their choice. Always read carefully!

Oops... I don't eat at the restaurant. I mean the mashed potato boxes you get at the grocery store by Bob Evans. They are in the fridge sections.

Stay away from them. Wheat is in them.

But that is very interesting that they were so rude to you! Because I have had a similar experience elsewhere. Honestly, ignorance is not always bliss.

Does anyone know if their mashed potatoes still contain wheat (refridgerator)? My girls came home on Monday from their other home and haven't felt right since. My youngest asked about the Bob Evans and I can't find anything else on-line.

The company Bob Evans, seems to have become enlightened since these posts were written. I called them and asked about their mashed potatoe products that are sold in supermarkets. They told me that their original, cheddar and Texas are gluten free. The sour cream and chives variety are NOT gluten free. They added that their bacon, all sausage (except the beer brat), ham cubes, ham steaks and Texas chili are also gluten free. These are supermarket products. I did not ask about what is sold in restaurants. I did suggest to them that their web site should contain a list of gluten free products so that you wouldn't have to call.

You are very kind to provide an update, but this original thread is 5 years old and the original poster may not see it. Just so you know! :) Cheers, IH

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
