Alexias Fries And Dr Praegers
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

So i was at the supermarket yesterday and went to pick up Alexia's sweet potato fries and noticed they are no longer labeled gluten-free. None of their fries are! And the sweet potato ones had tons of ingredients. Anyway, i emailed the company but was just wondering if anyone had any info on this-- was it a change in ingredients or did they just realize there was gluten in the products? Or are they just trying to be cautious by removing the gluten-free label? I think i'll switch to Trader Joes, which say "Sweet potatoes and oil" are the only ingredients.

Also, i remember there used to be two versions of Dr. Praegers pancakes (broccoli, spinach, sweet potato flavors)- one used to say gluten-free on the package and the other was made with oat bran. I never could figure out why they had two versions, but i havent been able to find the gluten-free ones anymore-- anyone know whats up?

Seems my gluten-free shopping list is getting shorter :huh:

Some of their fries are gluten-free:

Q: Are any of your products gluten free?

A: Alexia Julienne Fries, Rissole Potatoes, Organic Oven Crinkles and Morning Fries, Mashed Potatoes, Oven Fries & Oven Reds are gluten free. top

I have been eating some of the gluten-free fries with no problems. I believe they are the oven fries.

Thanks Carrie, I had seen that on the website as well, but was concerned that they hadnt updated it since they removed the words gluten-free from their packaging... i mean why would they take it off the packaging but keep it on the website? Doesnt seem to make any sense!

Again, my b/f is a frozen/dairy manager at a supermarket... so he has some inside info on certain items.. he will look into the Alexia stuff... but as for Dr Pragers... there are two kinds of each. They still do offer the gluten free ones... they are totally seperate and have different ordering numbers... you may want to talk to the frozen people where you purchase them. They are still available from Dr Pragers...

I will let you know about the Alexia as soon as we get some info.....

I just about cried when I saw what they did to those poor sweet potatoe fries!! Why would they take something healthy and add all that crap!! Anyway I have tried Trader's and Ians, but none were as good as my own. It is easy. I just sliced a sweet potatoe into round circles, coated them in organic olive oil and sea salt, and baked in a baking dish at 400 degrees for about five minutes then flipped and cooked for another five. Yum!!

ahh. why, why, why? we like the Alexia fries; I buy the different varieties BECAUSE they are gluten-free. Why does it always have to go backwards and not forwards? Go gluten-free not go gluteny....

So are the Sweet potatoe ones gluten free? They look gluten free based on the ingredients, but now I don't know? Did anyone get a definite answer that they are not gluten free?

If you really look into the website of the list of gluten-free items, those are just the catergories.... FOr instance it says julienne fries, however there is the Alexia Sweet Potato- Julienne Fries, Alexia Yukon Gold-Julienne Fries with Sea Salt, and Alexia Sweet Potato-Hanna Gold Julienne Fries with Sea Salt. So it seems to me everything under the julienne fries umbrella is gluten-free. Take a look, http://alexiafoods.com/products/julienne_main.php

<_<

I know, so frustrating. Anymore it seems we have to just make our own fries, and other foods, so we know what goes into them.

Ok, I found out the deal with Dr Pragers, they have oat bran in them. They also contain another form of oat, I cant remember the specific name, but it says clearly oat.

Stephanie-- thanks for checking that out-- i know there are the two versions of the praegers, and one has oat bran and the other does not, but does your second response mean that now all of them have oat bran? b/c those are the only ones i have found lately...but maybe i should just ask the freezer dept to check it out.

As for the sweet potato fries, Loraleena, i totally agree that it is easier to make your own (and healthier) but i am temporarily staying with my parents, and they love to make the sweet potato fries-- they dont cook much and so i was looking for something they could make that i could eat as well...unfortunately right now i have no time to cook so i must rely on what they are willing to make :D

So frustrating- i dont understand why you need more than 2 ingredients in sweet potato fries...

    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Do you have celiac disease?  This is a celiac forum and that's what we are most knowledgeable about. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Amalgam fillings do not have lead that I know.  What you read was probably mercury.  You could have them removed, but only by a dentist who has the knowledge and skill.   I think you need to do some more research so that you can make an informed decision. I wish you well. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Welcome! Go ahead and rant!  Scream and holler!  Weep.  It is totally normal to go through a grieving process.  We have all been there!  You are NOT alone! When you pick yourself off the floor, start researching.  Learn about the gluten free diet.  Start with easy-to-digest foods that are naturally gluten free (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, etc.).  You may have to give up dairy for a short time until your villi heal (the villi tips release enzymes that help digest lactose (milk sugars).  Skip all the processed foods until you are improving.  That will give yourself time to forget what bread really tastes like.  Avoid eating out for a few months -- it's easy to get cross contamination.  Best to explain your gluten-free needs when you, yourself, "get it".  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" for valuable tips.   You can go out and drink with your friends.  You might have to avoid alcohol for a few months.  But when healed you can drink!  Just no beers, malted beverages.  Most distilled liquor (e.g. volka) is gluten free.   So, is wine.  Skip the gluten free beer for a long time.   Find other celiacs in your area.  In the meantime, visit with us.  It does get better.        
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Hi everyone, I'm going through some health issues right now and when searching for possible causes of my symptoms and blood test results, I see lead poissoning popping up quite a few times. Now, I have many amalgam fillings in my mouth since childhood, so naturally I'm thinking if that might play a role and if removing them would make a difference. But from what I read online removing the amalgam fillings is not recommended and does not bring any health benefits. I have mixed feelings about this issue and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance for any comments. Greetings from Mexico. :-)

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
