Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce
0

17 posts in this topic

Am I losing my mind, or did someone on the message board say that Sweet Baby Ray's is gluten free? I picked up a bottle (the original) while shopping on Friday and one of the ingredients is modified food starch. I thought this was an unsafe ingredient?

sign me confused,

Lily

modified food starch is only a questionable ingredient. it can be made from any of the safe grains (though most often corn, out of all the safe grains), but can also be made from "the bad grains" :P as well. you have to call the company and find out.

On the napervillegi list it says that as of 6/04 that Sweet Baby Ray's is gluten free. I sure hope that is right. Otherwise get Saz's sauce, that is gluten-free for sure, it says so right on the bottle. Barbara

You can (and generally should) double check with the company, but I am pretty sure it is still gluten-free. It is the only sauce I eat at home and have never had a reaction to it.

God bless,

:o I was pretty certain that I read Sweet Baby Rays is gluten free, also. I guess I'll try to contact the company tomorrow adn get a confirmation. I also thought I read somewhere, that if food is manufactures within the US and it states modified food startch, that is should be corn starch, unless it states otherwise. Did someone else read that? Or am I just going crazy? :blink:

:( I just got a call from a Rep for Sweet Baby Rays Sauce and they cannot guarantee that there is no gluten present, however no gluten is added to the sauce. So I guess that means there could be a chance for cross contamination.

What it means is some company lawyer told them to say that just in case sometime somehow one of their suppliers sends them a contaminated ingredient. The reality is that you take this chance every time you eat any processed product or eat at a restaurant. If you eat out you're taking a MUCH bigger chance than if you used SBR.

I know a number of people with celiac disease who use SBR and don't remember hearing any complaining about getting glutened.

for anyone still wondering about this product, i stumbled upon this statement from them on another gluten free web site.

Our product is 100% gluten free. Sweet Baby Ray's does not contain protein from any of the following potential allergens: barley, crustaceans, eggs, fish, milk, oats, peanuts, rye, soybeans, tree nuts or wheat. The source of our modified food starch that is used in Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce is corn. Also there are no dairy products or dairy product derivatives contained in Sweet Baby Ray's sauce."

i know its a little late but i hope this helps you!! sounds pretty safe to me :)

lilliexx I'm pretty sure this is their old statement. Then some lawyer told then to quit using it in case they get sued.

Thanks for your replies everyone. I still have problems sometimes from products who say they are gluten free. I guess I need to stay away from processed foods. Thanks!

Linda,

For BBQ sauce (for chicken), I put one cup of Heinz ketchup, plus one can of Pepsi. Stir with a wisk, marinade overnight, and either fry or put on the grill. Makes a pretty tender, yummy tasting dish. Not to mention cheap! :D

Enjoy!

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
