Kraft Gluten Free And Lactose Free Product List
1 1

17 posts in this topic

I was doing some research today and I came across this Kraft gluten-free and lactose free product list. I thought it was great so I thought I'd share it with you guys!

http://www.kraftcanada.com/assets/docs/KLG_all.pdf

If the above link doesn't work click on this link and scroll down to the bottom where it says: Kraft Canada has a 16-page pdf file listing all their gluten-free products (as well as lactose free and kosher)

Does this list apply to the US products as well? Also, do you know how old this list is? When I contacted Kraft, they were quite uncooperative, telling me to read the label, as all ingredients are listed. However, they never tell you the source of their natural or artificial flavors, so I usually move on down the aisle.

The reason Kraft told you that is because they have a policy of labeling ANY source of an allergen. So if a natural/artificial flavor contains wheat, it will say so in parenthesis after "natural flavor" or the like. If they hold true to their own policy, you CAN just read their labels. (But this is why they aren't so helpful on the phone.)

I'm surprised that they even had a list for Canada.......do they not follow that same labeling procedure there?

Kraft, like Tiffany said, doesn't give out a list, but they don't need to because reading the label can ensure you that the food is safe.....which is exactly what I love about their products. Flavorings, starches, etc. are gluten-free unless otherwise stated by something in parens., for example: natural flavorings (wheat)..........I think it's terrific that they do this; however, if you are still questioning a product and call them up, they'll tell you if a specific products is gluten-free.....cause I asked about Crystal Light before I knew of this policy.

The Kraft Canada list does NOT necessarily apply to the U.S. Do not use it that way.

To hthorvald,

Why in the heck would you be upset with Kraft? Kraft is like we would want every single company to be. I don't want to call companies or carry a list around. I just want to read the label. And that's what you can do with Kraft products. You don't need to ask them where their natural flavors come from, because if it doesn't say wheat, rye, barley or oats, you know it didn't come from there. By ignoring Kraft you are not supporting one the best companies around as far as labeling gluten. Kraft is exactly the opposite of "uncooperative." They are extremely cooperative.

I use many more Kraft products as well.....I feel more comfortable with that company's food cause I feel like they're more careful about gluten....now I actually look for Kraft products to get instead of the other brands.......I really appreciate what they've done for labeling.......they've adopted the labeling standards that I would dream of all manufacturers having one day.

hthorvald,

The list was updated in May 2004 but just to be careful always read ingredients. I am from Canada so

I'm not sure if this list applies in the US.

It probably doesn't apply to the US, as well--otherwise they'd have given me that list when I e-mailed them about a list. Of course, with Kraft's terrific food labelings, that doesn't bother me.....good labeling is really valuable cause a list can go out of date, sort of........

It's good to know that I can trust Kraft. I was counseled by the dietician I see not to eat any foods unless the source of the natural and artificial foods are disclosed. Since most of the Kraft packaging I've come across just said natural flavors, I assumed that they may be of a gluten derivative.

However, my understanding from recent posts is that if the natural or artificial flavors are not gluten-free, Kraft will state the source. Really cool.

I'm assuming the same is with their marshmallows. I'm not sure if gelatin is gluten-free or not, but from all the recent posts, I'm assuming that if it was, they'd list it.

Thanks for all the great comments. I really like this forum

A fair number of the salad dressings are gluten-free but not all. I remember once that involves bacon lists wheat starch. Once again, read the ingredients.

aren't they trying to pass a law that they would have to list on all labels any and all allergens?...if not we should all (everybody with any type of allergy to food products and ingredients) sign like a petition to our state or higher?...but i hope that we don't have to b/c they would be doin somethin like that right now...

That law - which requires all eight major allergens (wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, fish, shellfish, eggs, and soybeans) to be listed in plain english, and requires for definitions of what "gluten-free" means - has been passed and signed, and will change labels (and you can start to see it from some companies) but the changes are not required until 2006, and they've got 4 years to develop the gluten-free definition. It only partly addresses the gluten-free diet, however, since barley, rye, and oats do not have to be listed "in plain english". I believe, however, that - as the law removed the loophole for "natural flavors" - they may still need to be specific in that case. (It would still, it seems allow them to hide oats under avenia stevie (or however you spell its scientific name).)

Here is a link to a website describing the law. It's important to note the exceptions that will be allowed, though: "Ingredients containing or derived from major food allergens can be exempt from the labeling requirements if scientific evidence shows the ingredient lacks allergenic protein, or the ingredient does not pose a risk to human health. Moreover, any highly refined oil or any ingredient derived from a highly refined oil is exempt. For example, a highly refined oil containing an allergenic protein would not be required to list the major food allergen on the label since the allergenic properties of the ingredient should be destroyed during processing. Currently, highly refined oils, raw agricultural commodities, and alcoholic beverages are exempt from the labeling requirements."

So am I safe to assume that the "modified food starch" in Kraft dressings is not Wheat since they label wheat on their prodcuts?

Yes, I would say that the gluten free Kraft dressings are safe to consume since they would clearly label if gluten was present. I've been eating the gluten free and lactose free dressings with no problem and I am super sensitive. I have a salad almost every day and the gluten-free Kraft dressings really make my salads taste better!

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
