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,

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!

:) I have been using SBR sauce for the past two weekends, and I haven't had any problems :D . I think that I would like to make some taht is homemade, just to play it safe. Does anyone have a good recipe for BBQ sauce? I am a bit wipmy,and don't like anything too spicy. I would appreciate it.

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!

According to the website:

All products except for the meatballs with sauce are gluten free.

    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich
