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.
