American Cheese
0

8 posts in this topic

I hope this does not post twice. I have been feeding my daughter land o lakes american cheese for over a year now. Because she is symptom free this is very hard. Also I was told by someone on this board that Honey Combs, Alphabits and fruity pebbles are gluten free but now someone says they are not, what do I do? Is there any american cheese I can feed this child? I am so frustrated!!!! Thanks for any help.....Kelly

Kelly-

I HIGHLY recommend calling the companies yourself. I do not think that you want to intrust your daughter's health to perfect strangers. You might get some great ideas on what foods she might be able to eat, but do not count on word of mouth to tell you for sure. Find the 1-800 number or website address to the companies in question and do the checking on your own. This is the best way to insure your daughter stays gluten free and healthy. Best of luck.

I called Post and they said the cereal is not gluten free because of the oat flour so hear we go again since oats are so controversial. I just dont know what to do so for now I will worry about finding american cheese....kelly

:) Hi

When my husband first had to go gluten-free last Fall, I emailed Land o Lakes and inquired about the deli cheese (type that the deli person has to slice for you). they advised that this type of LO Lakes cheese was not gluten free. They advised that their "Natural" cheese is gluten-free; but I cannot find their Natural cheese (I think it's a dairy case item & my supermarket doesn't carry it). Boar's Head deli cheese is Gluten Free. Boar's Head is celiac friendly and might have a website that details their gluten-free meats & cheeses. Also Applegate Farms deli meats at Whole Foods is gluten-free. Be careful at the deli dept. only because the slicer isn't gluten free and the meat or cheese that was on the slicer BEFORE your gluten-free meat or cheese is sliced could leave traces of gluten.

Kraft and Kroger American cheese are gluten-free.

Fruity Pebbles technically is gluten-free, but I would worry about cross contamination.

There really is no controversy about oats in the U.S. -- all U.S. oats are contaminated and are not to be considered gluten-free. Every expert I know of agrees on this.

My son is still dairy-free and we've been using RiceSlice, which comes as "american" or "mozzarella". It tastes good enough to eat plain, and we can find it in our grocery store (Wegmans) in the alternative foods section cold case.
