0

9 posts in this topic

Has anybody found a substitute for Goldfish crackers or Cheese Nips/Cheeze-Its? (Peppridge Farms I believe make them)

My son just loves these and obviously cannot have them any longer. Please let me know if there are any gluten-free alternitives out there :)

THANKS!

I saw a recipe for gluten-free goldfish crackers using chebe bread mix. It was on their website www.chebe.com under recipes. I believe you add chedder cheese to the mix and roll it out thin, and cut it into fish shapes (if you have the patience)

I haven't tried it, but it sounds good.

Crunch Toons are the closest I have found to goldfish crackers and they are gluten-free. I found them at my local Target store. Here is the website where you can check them out, they have original, cheddar cheese and nacho cheese flavor. I tried the cheddar cheese, they are shaped like tweety bird.

Jhmom, are you SURE these are gluten-free??? Sounds too good to be true, to this mom of a 2 1/2 year old who is NOT happy about giving up his goldfish. Please say it's so!!!!

Are they all gluten-free? (the flavors, I mean)

I was just coming on to say I bought a bag, then read the ingredients and wondered if anyone had talked to the company? There's caramel coloring, and natural/artificial flavors. I wanted to be sure this is really ok before I give it to my two year old, who doesn't get diarrhea or anything like that for me to be able to know if he's had a 'mistake' His only symptoms, which lead to diagnosis, were that he was very lethargic and literally starving to death (he looked like an ethiopian, honest to god) and I really don't want to get to that point again before I realize something is wrong. I was going to contact the company tomorrow but if anyone has already done this, or has eaten these things long enough to know (aka their body would've told them) they are truly ok that's good enough for me.

Please lemme know! Thanks!!

Hi Bridget

I am VERY sensitive too, even to the slightest crumb or cross contamination and did not have a reaction to them . I have not call the company to verify though.

I found out about Crunch Toons through another support group because the product was posted on the home page as a "safe snack" for Celiac's.

Maybe you should call the company just to make sure :D not unless someone else can verify this.

Ok Silly Yaks, it is a sad day for me.....I have bad news to report :(

Crunch Toons the popular gluten-free snack made by Poore Brothers is being Discontinued. <_< I just got off the phone with the company and they are no longer making them!! You still might be able to find some on the shelves of stores such as Target, wal-mart etc. The lady on the phone said that they freeze well, so you can buy a bunch and put them into the freezer, but they are no longer being made!! I personally am SAD, because I LOVED the taz shaped ones. I know they were also great for little celiacs!! Just when we find something fun, it gets discontinued!! DARN!

Oh almost forgot, the whole reason I contacted them was to get firm confirmation of the gluten-free Status. They are gluten-free!! So If you find them, freeze them!! haha

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
