I think I am going crazy. Every time I think I find a food I can eat that isn't too bad for me I find out that I can't eat it!! Quaker rice cakes could be cross contaminated. I am really getting frustrated with this diet. The only thing I feel like is safe is drinking. Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks,

Mindy

Hi Mindy--

Yes, it can be very frusterating! The only thing you can really do is move on and find a substitute. Lots of people like Lundberg Rice Cakes. Maybe try those if you have a Whole Foods nearby. :)

Try Lundberg rice cakes. They say gluten free on them, they're good and as far as I know they have no issues with cc.

which rice cakes were contaminated?

For 8 years Ive lived on plain quakers rice cakes. I eat the chocolate ones every now and then (I get addicted) but Ive never encountered any problems. Although who knows? They may be cross contaminated and I never knew. Could explain why Im never feeling 100% well and have suffered quite a few serious attacks lately.

Did you call the company and ask them?

Please, if there info. can you share it? thanks!

Much appreciated,

Fellow Celiac

I have heard over and over that Quaker cant be trusted, but Quaker Caramel Corn Rice Cakes have been my one staple since day one. I have never been glutened by them. I did get glutened by their chocolate chip snack cakes, but even then I dont think I was glutened, I think it was a reaction to the soy and corn in them. I have been gluten-free for almost 5 years now and eat Quaker Rice Cakes every morning for breakfast--every morning. Deb

I emailed them about 6 months ago. Their products are made in a facility that processes wheat and oats. They would NOT recommend their product for celiacs. I stopped eating them then and there.

Im always bloated after eating rice cakes. Now Im wondering if Ive been the victim of cross-contamination and never knew it.

Im so upset now. I have practically lived on these things since diagnosed, 78 years ago.

Does anyone have any recent/updated info about this? Or, a response from the company itself?

If so, can someone please post it?

You guys are great........

After hearing Quaker rice cakes could be CC, I bought some Lundberg Rice Cakes the other day - they say gluten-free right on the package - and they taste great, much better than Quaker.

I read the label on the store brand rice cakes I have been buying. It says they are produced in a facility where almonds, soy, and corn are processed, but does not give the manufacturer's name.

No wonder I have not gotten better yet, I've been eating Quaker Rice Cakes multiple times a day. This is so frusterating!!! I do like the Lundberg rice cakes better; but because Quaker is cheaper, I've been buying those. At least I know now.

I eat the safeway ones, they are on their gluten-free list, i'm not a fan on the lunburg ones. in my opinion they just don't taste good and are very crunchy, and i still can't really chew yet...

I have safeway ones wih cheese... yummy.

Hi Mindy--

I just got sick after eating some Lundberg "Gluten Free" rice cakes. I've heard that there is no government oversight of any company that claims to be "gluten free". I am very upset by companies advertising in this way just to boost sales and to satisfy people who are not celiac but like to eat gluten-free. I am celiac and I can tell you without hesitation that the Lundberg Rice Cakes that I ate were contaminated. I haven't felt this sick in a long time.

I think the best way to avoid contamination is just to avoid prepackaged food altogether. The farther away from an assembly line your food is -- the better. Of course that means you have to cook everything, which is what I do normally. I just thought I'd save some time by eating some rice cakes instead of going home to have lunch. What a mistake that was!

Nick :angry:

Dear E,

I'd say if you've been practically living on these things for 78 years with just some bloating, they must not be all that bad! I'm surprised they even had rice cakes in 1929.

best regards, lm

We are never safe--doesn't matter what the company says, we are only as safe as the individuals doing the job. The only way something could be gluten free for sure is if it is produced in a comapny that NEVER has gluten in the building--THEN, we still can't be sure where they got the base products from in the first place.

Quaker Rice Cakes have never failed me. They have been a staple in my life for over 5 years now. I tried Lundberg Rice Cakes and found them disgusting, they tasted like stale popcorn! I emailed the company and complained that they do not even have an expiration date on the packages. I was informed that they have a code that tells when the product was produced and that they keep very well for 1 year! Well, that code means nothing to us, if we do not know how to figure it out. Then she told me she is sending me 2 bags of Rice Cakes to replace the bad ones I had. That is very nice and I will email and thank her, yet if they taste the same as before, I will feed them to the seagulls, if they will have them!

I have tried Shoprite brand too and they taste fine, yet they are so unstable and usually 1/2 of the bag is busted before you open them--so, I went back to my Quaker and have done just fine. I only eat them to have something to put my peanut butter on--maybe I will switch to apples and peanut butter!

Hi Deb :lol: nice name!!!!!!

There are those here who feel Quaker Rice Cakes can not be trusted. There are some who think they have been glutened by them. I have eaten them now for 5 1/2 years and never once had a problem. I am intolerant of so many things, yet these have never made me sick. I only eat the caramel corn rice cakes, never any of the others. I did eat the Cracker Jack ones for awhile, but have not in a very long time. In my opinion, Quaker Rice Cakes are perfectly safe for us--I have no reason to feel they aren't.

that statement from quaker oats sounds like a CYA statement, and it was made almost a year and a half ago. we (my kids) are always in danger of CC no matter what we do. i have avoided quaker rice cakes because i heard people say they weren't safe. but, now that i see the actual statement and see that deb has been eating them for that long without a problem, i think i may go ahead and buy them again.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
