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.

:) 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.

    • 62 yr old woman...celiac?
      I have to agree with Gemini, you must not go gluten free until you've had an endoscopy with biopsies (first you get the blood work done, then you get your confirmation by a follow-up endoscopy), it's the reaction to the gluten that creates the antibodies' you won't get that reaction if you don't eat gluten. It might seem inconvenient, but in the long run it will be worth it.

      Hi Mom...I take Florajen 3.  It has worked really well for me.  It is kept refrigerated.  I have a hard time finding it where I live so I usually have to order it.
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Hi monkeyloaf......with a positive tTg and EMA, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease. It doesn't matter that they are weakly positive, a positive is a positive with Celiac!  With a positive EMA, I am sure you will show damage on biopsy BUT if it happens that damage is patchy and they miss those spots, please do what you already stated and go strictly gluten-free.  You have Celiac!  Couple that with Type 1 diabetes and other relatives with Celiac, it is of the utmost importance  that you be gluten-free.  Your intuition is talking to you on this so these words you spoke are very smart!    I am sorry you have both AI diseases but with the right diet, you are going to be feeling so much better so hang in there!
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      I'm still awaiting the results of my biopsy. I have Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults, which is basically type 1 diabetes diagnosed as an adult. (I was 32.) I have second degree relatives with celiac, although, my mom and my sister have yet to be tested. My mom's side of the family has a variety of autoimmune issues. My tTg-IgA was weakly positive (7.5), my DGP IgA was weakly positive (26), and my EMA was positive. My GI MD said he could see some inflammation on my duodenum during my EGD. I desperately want an answer to the issues I've been having. My primary complaints have been fatigue and joint pain, so I hadn't really considered celiac, thinking my GI issues were due to exhaustion. I am thinking I may stay gluten-free regardless of the biopsy results. I've been feeling better since cutting out gluten immediately after my EGD. I also feel like my lab work, diabetes, and family history are enough to warrant caution. Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
    • Probiotic Help
      I have Celiac and I am looking for a really good probiotic.  I have taken several different probiotics over the last year.  Can anyone recommend a good brand.  My local health food store said I should be taken ones that are kept in the frig.  Any advice would be helpful

      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.
