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:

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...

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
