Publix Has New gluten-free Food!
0

12 posts in this topic

Since I have been gluten free, the Greenwise aisle has gotten larger at my Publix stores, but most of their new additions have not been gluten-free. Well today I perused the area as I do at least monthly and they had some brand of rice pasta called Notta Pasta. They also have Genisoy soy snacks for those who eat soy, Pamela's gluten-free biscotti (three flavors) and Fantastic food gluten-free hummus mix. This particular store is at the corner of Sugarloaf and Five Forks Tricum for those of you in the area.

I hope that is a sign that all of Publix's will start to carry more gluten-free stuff. When I contacted their corporate offices about getting the list of the Publix brand products that are gluten-free, I begged them to consider carrying more gluten-free stuff.

Thanks - that is right around the corner from my parents' house. I've been wondering what I will do for food when we go over there - now I will know that I can always run out and get something if I need to :)

The Publix by us stinks. Nobody knows what gluten-free is, and the Greenwise portion of the aisle is about 2 feet wide. But I was totally impressed that the Wild Oats by us has little signs under every gluten free product. What a help that is!

I posted a thread a week or so ago about the sign at the fish counter their stuff being CC. Well, the otherday I called the store manager over and showed him the fresh herb's that were in really bad shape. I asked him if he would eat them? He was very nice. I went it to my celiac soap box. He knew all about it and he said we have a few gluten free items. He told me if I gave him a list of the foods we want to buy to stop by and drop it off and he will order these items.

So, my thought is -- make a list, make a few copies drop them off to your local PUBLIX store and/or mail it in to the corp address. And maybe, just maybe, they will stock items that celiac's can eat.

I myself now have secondary food allergies so anything in a package I can't eat. But some of you that haven't developed these secondary intolerance, yet, this might help you.

Give it a try nothing to loose but your gluten free food wish list...

Has anyone tried the pasta? My Publix doesn't have a good selection, but one 20 miles away really does.

We are also getting SweetBay stores since they took over Kash N' Karry - those have great selections.

Do you mean the Notta Pasta? I tried it--I thought it was gummy and stuck together when cooking. Not much taste--kind of pasty. To be fair, I was used to eating Tinkyada and it just does not compare.

I was just in Publix and picked up their Garden Style Pasta Sauce, on sale for 59 CENTS a jar! I was thrilled to get such a good buy - and sure it would be on their Publix brand gluten-free list but when I looked it up - nope, no sauce at all. Back to the 2.50 a jar Newman's.

<<<Greenwise aisle has gotten larger at my Publix stores>>>

Try shopping at SweetBay...I've had better success getting them to stock Gluten-Free than I did with Publix. Publix Corp. just sort of brushed me off with a "well, everyone has their particular wants and needs" and SweetBay got back to me right away with a "we're working hard at briging in trusted Gluten-Free products". Now, if I could only get them to make their CheckOut aisles more user friendly!!

By the way, I live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and we've got a great Health Food Store that goes out of it's way to stock LOTS of gluten-free products. It's called the Vitamin Outlet in Largo Florida...sandwiched between Clearwater and StPetersburg on EastBay Drive. Not only do they stock all my favorites...but they search for new things to bring in just to try.

Notta Pasta is ggod. really quick to make although it does stick together. I love pasta and although i suppose i agree it doens't have much of a taste, I like the pasta with some spray butter if i don't want my pasta to have to cook a looooong time

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening

      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.
