Kraft/landolakes Cheese
0

5 posts in this topic

I was told by someone that deli counter cheese & meets were safe (by someone in a celiac disease support group). I called Land-o-lakes and was told that their American cheese is not gluten-free. She said the natural cheeses are gluten-free. I've read that Kraft products are gluten-free (and that they have a food list) but I can't find anything on their website that tells you. Does anyone have any info about this?

Thank you-

Cindy :rolleyes:

MOST deli meats are gluten-free but not all. Boar's Head has two that aren't and Sara Lee has a few that aren't (they'll send you a list if you call or e-mail). In addition, if you're having them slice them there at the counter, you need to get them to clean the slicer first. Most places will do this with no problem but I try to go when they aren't busy.

I wonder what's in the American cheese. I've never heard of one with gluten.

Kraft does not have a list, but they do something even better. If a product has gluten in it, it will be clearly listed on the label as wheat, rye, barley or oats. All you have to do is read the ingredients.

Kraft doesn't have a food list. Their American cheese is, however, gluten-free. I use it all the time for grilled cheese. I also use Kraft parmesan cheese and mozzarella. All gluten-free........

By the way, you can tell if Kraft products are gluten-free by looking at the label. Just look for wheat, barley, malt, rye, etc. anywhere on the label. Natural and artificial flavors are gluten-free unless they say: natural flavors (wheat) or something.

this is what kraft told me

We understand how important it is for people who have been medically diagnosed with gluten sensitivity to have accurate information about foods to help plan their meals and diets. Therefore, it has been a long standing policy for all Kraft and Nabisco products to list items that contain gluten on the package ingredient statement. These items will be listed using commonly known terms such as Wheat, Barley, Oats or Rye. For other ingredients that contain gluten, the grain source will be declared in parenthesis after the ingredient name. For example, if the ingredient 'natural flavor' contains a gluten source, the label would read: natural flavor (contains rye) Other ingredients that contain gluten are: Triticale, Spelt, Kamut, Mir or Farina (also known as Far or Farro).

For Kraft products that contain Vinegar, information from our vinegar suppliers assures us that the vinegar we use in our products is gluten free.

All vinegar is distilled and through the distilling process protein is removed.

If you would like additional information or to view our Gluten Fact Sheet please visit our website, www.kraftfoods.com and type gluten in the "Search Kraft" box.

I hope this assist you in making food choices that are appropriate for your personal needs. If you have additional questions about your personal dietary needs, please consult your doctor or a registered dietitian.

      I went gluten free & never looked back! I have dh, the celiac rash. That makes it pretty darn easy to go gluten-free the moment you figure it out. I was not about to continue eating gluten for even one more day just so the medical establishment would be satisfied in my dx. There was not a moment of doubt in my mind that I had dh & therefore celiac. As it turns out, weirder than weirder than weird and the odds I can't even begin to imagine.... I have since, by sheer accident, had 2 docs officially dx me. Is that crazy or what??!! I did not go in asking for a dx nor even hoping for one. Frankly, I just plain didn't care what they thought. The medical community has failed me numerous times throughout my life so I don't have the highest regard for them. You are 54, I was 54 when I figured mine out. I have no kids so did not need to consider them in my decision not to go for an official dx. My parents had already passed away so that was not an issue. My brother had passed away so that was not an issue either. I did contact my nephew & tell him to let my sister know so she could get tested. So I have done my duty by her & she's an adult and a nurse & can make her own decisions. I do urge people to go for an official dx whenever possible, especially when they have kids or other 1st degree family members. If it's doable for them I think they should make a good effort at it. Also, there are certain people who express they don't think they can stick to the diet without the official dx. I think those people should pursue a dx with all their might. I have never had the slightest problem sticking religiously to gluten free eating. I have never doubted myself. I know you have tired HARD! Super, super HARD. I commend you for your dogged pursuit. I would not, could not blame you for giving it all up & just going gluten free this instant. That is a choice only you can make but I fully support whatever decision you make.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Your brother sounds like mine, Squirmy.  He was a Type 1 diabetic and had flaming celiac symptoms to boot but his docs always, always blamed his diabetes on everything.  He lived in the country and the docs in his state just were so far from being Celiac savvy.  I doubt they ever diagnosed one. His health was failing so badly that in the end, with the 3 MONTHS of non-stop diarrhea going on, he became so dehydrated that he had a heart attack and died last August 4th. His biggest mistake was trusting these idiots completely.  I think his brain was so messed up and confused that he just couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him.......that good ole brain fog.  He did what celiac's may do when left untreated for years and years.....they slowly fail and then die.  It still is extremely painful for me to think about because I was close to him.  I still see many people in my life that I think have it because of their extreme symptoms. Listening to them complain that the doctors aren't helping them. Try suing them for malpractice too......it would be too hard to prove. And then we have those who know there is something very wrong but won't give up wheat bread because that is unfathomable to them.  This disease can drive anyone crazy, for many different reasons.

      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.
