Check Out Your Local Grocery Stores

I recently discovered my local Safeway store has a Natural Market and does carry gluten free food. Mine had pasta, cereal, frozen waffles, mixes and several other items. I was thrilled when I got my weekly grocery ads and Gorilla Munch and Panda Puff cereal by Envirokids was in it. Not every Safeway has a Natural Market so call your store and check. My local Smith's store which is affiliated with Kroger and King Supers, also carries gluten free foods, they even have already made rice bread in their freezer section of health foods along with gluten-free waffles. It might sound silly, but I was so excited to find out I don't have to go to the health food store for everything! I live in Wyoming and my shopping is limited for specialty items. I have to go to Colorado to stock up on flour and what not as it's cheaper. Being new to celiac disease (diagnosed march 04), I'm so excited to have shopping options. Those of you that have had this a while probably already knew this, but I couldn't contain my excitement and just had to share!!

Safeway does have a gluten-free list, I am not exactly sure where my dad found it, but it lists all the commercial products they carry that are gluten-free

Kroger which is the parent company of Ralph's in CA has a toll free number 866-632-6900 where you can talk to a registered dietitian about gluten free products or any question you have about their products. I haven't tried it yet. It is listed on their website, Kroger.com under their health page.

Here in Kansas, Kroger is known as Dillons. I'll have to check it out. Also, Kroger has a program that you can sign up on, and it will give you discounts on some of what you buy there. gluten-free goodies are expensive, so I hope they have foods I can have at the discounted prices!

We have Shaw's Supermarkets and some of the Shaw's brand foods are gluten-free: lunchmeats (pre-packed), yogurt, even acetaminophen to name a few. I saw Safeway has many of it's own too. The CSA Product Listing has all of the HyVee, Safeway, and Shaw's gluten-free foods in it, along with a few others.

Thanks for mentioning a list from stores, I hadn't thought of them having a gluten free list of products. I emailed Safeway last week and got a reply today. I printed out 5 pages of items that are gluten free. They are for Select, Safeway, Enlighten, Healthy Advantage, Manor House, and Lucerne brands. There are so many mainstream options I hadn't considered before.

I went to my local Dillon's (aka Kroger) to check out their natural foods section today. I was extremely disappointed! There was nothing there that was gluten-free. No bread, no cookies, no crackers, no mixes. No one from management was available for me to ask them about it. I spent 1 1/2 hours walking up and down aisles, just in case it was mixed in with the rest of the food. I will just have to keep shopping around!

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
