I'm pretty sure it's not okay. I just got something from Clan Thompson on it.

Even though the ingredients look okay it is not gluten-free. It is not as good but Kraft makes a ranch dressing and premade dip that is safe.

What I was told by Hidden Valley 2-3 years ago was that the starch they use can vary all the time, because they get whatever is cheapest with their distributor at any given time, so sometimes it is wheat starch, and they do not consider their Ranch to be gluten free. I don't think they have any plans to change this, since it is their standard method and it does not effect their recipe. I did wonder why their label didn't change though when the labeling law went into effect. Shouldn't they have to disclose that there is wheat starch in the products?

Anyhow, we don't get it, but we do still miss it. My daughter no longer likes salad because she can't have Hidden Valley Ranch...

So, I emailed Hidden Valley and this is the response that I got from them today... sounds like we can have it now!!! What do you think???

"Thank you for contacting us about HV Full Cal Bottled Salad Dressing - Original Ranch. We always appreciate hearing from our consumers.

When I called them on the phone a few weeks ago the lady said that there can be trace amounts of gluten and they don't consider it to be gluten-free. There have been a couple times where I ate a little bit of it very tentatively (because there isn't any gluten listed) and had no problems, but then tried it another time and got sick from it. What gf4life said about the starches varying makes the most sense to me as to why I've had different reactions to it. Now I avoid it just because I don't want to risk it. I'm hoping (okay praying...) that someday it will be gluten-free.

i called the 1800 number on the back of some hidden valley ranch and they said it was gluten free but talk to a nutritionist about cross contaminantion (this lady went on forever, i was like i just want a yes or no answer, i know what celiac is! haha) she also said that they would clearly label wheat on the label...i dont know how trustwrothy this info was but i bought it anyway cuz i love broccoli and ranch dressing!!!

Everything I've read said it's not worth the risk - and you can't really go by symtpoms, since not everyone will always get symptoms. You can always make your own.
