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. The Modified Food Starch is derived from corn and we use white vinegar is our products. Our ingredient panel does list any gluten or any gluten containing ingredients. For the most accurate source of information please check the back of the ingredient panel for every purchase as ingredients may change. "

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.

    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      after you get yourself squared away, these docs need reporting.  out right lying to you...
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry. 
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Alex the good news is you have found a great site with useful information and warm support! You need to work with your doctor to get a diagnosis but there are plenty here who have had similar experiences: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=panic%20attack so it sounds like your on the right lines   Take heart that you have probably found the cause now rather than later.  Follow CyclingLady's excellent advice above and go for celiac screening asap. For tests to work you need to be eating gluten for some time. That is a scary prospect when you've finally experienced some relief but it's for a limited time period, you can get support here along the way and if you choose to you can go gluten-free at the end and get relief whatever the results.  Once you're done testing and off the gluten you will be in a much better position to nail the lifestyle. That may mean some pre-planning, maybe taking a backpack with some gluten-free snacks with you, at least until you find the places you can reliably eat at. There are apps and sites that can help and probably local support groups in NYC as well: https://www.google.co.uk/?ion=1&espv=2#q=new%20york%20gluten%20free%20restaurants With research you'll also get to know what fast food options are viable, what readily available candy bars are ok etc. I can eat Mcdonalds fries for instance, which can come in handy if I'm away from my kitchen or supplies. Most starbucks or equivalents will have at least a gluten-free snack bar. So although a pain in the arse, it's doable and the health payoffs MORE than make up for the hassle.  Good luck! 
    • to biopsy or not?
      I ordered the cookbook the same day you recommended it.  I am SO excited!  I actually cried looking through the book!  I honestly don't believe I am good at all in the kitchen.  I am lucky enough to have a husband who cooks everything when he's home.  The only thing I felt skilled at in the kitchen was baking.  I made all of my kids' birthday cakes for the last 8 years.  I was sad thinking that we wouldn't have anything good for a birthday cake.  I mean, I've tried gluten free cake from a box, but it was just ok.  It wasn't amazing the way a homemade cake can be.  So now I have hope.  Hope that maybe my non-celiac kids will enjoy a birthday cake still.  My daughter (the most-likely-to-be-celiac one) never really ate birthday cake to begin with.   So this summer is her birthday and we will find out if it's good!  Thank you for the recommendation!!!   Janis
    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?

      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.
