Pickles?
0

6 posts in this topic

I know that kraft has a gluten free pickle but I can't find them anywhere. The only pickles I can find are bick and valasic(I don't think I spelled that correctly). I was wondering if either of these are gluten free. I am really craving them lately. I read that Alymer pickles and coronation brand are gluten free but I haven't came across them. I live in a small town and we have a Sobey's and Extra foods neither of which carry them.

You must be from Canada. Those are the only two that I have seen also. I've been craving them too, but I don't know if either are gluten-free. Good question.

Pickles are generally gluten-free.

Vlasic is definitely gluten-free. :)

The last time l ate Bicks pickles l had a reaction and l just tried some of their Bread and Butter pickles and some of their beets with my supper and had a reaction(diarrhea) again. I think l will steer clear for a while and try again in a week or so just to see if it was them for sure. The rest of my meal consisted of bar-b-q cooked chicken breast with just salt and pepper, spinach and boiled potatoes. I had jello for dessert so l don't see the rest of the meal being the culprit.

Bick's is a Canadian brand that has been owned since at least 2005 by Smucker's. Smucker's has a policy that they will clearly disclose any gluten in their products. I would expect that by now the labelling for Bick's complies with that policy.

Prior to the takeover, Bick's was part of Robin Hood Multifoods. Smucker's bought them, and then sold off most of the assets related to the flour-milling business, leaving them with Bick's. My brother-in-law worked in the finance department at RH for many years, before leaving due to the buy-out.

As mentioned, pickles are very rarely a problem. The old myth about vinegar being a source of gluten may be factor in people worrying needlessly.

I'm coming to this thread just a lil late, hehe... I don't believe Bicks makes anything that they call Bread and Butter pickles. Did you mean their Yum Yum pickles? They finally have a website, btw, bicks.ca, so I went there and checked.

    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
