I found some stuff online that seemed to indicate that cottage cheese was not gluten-free, but other things that indicate it is. I couldn't see anything on the ingredient list....

What do you guys think?

Depends on the brand and what they put in it. Many use modified food starch. Yuck! Always read the ingredients. Here I could get a brand called Alpine Rose from the milk man. No modified food starch. Can't remember the name of the brand I bought on the east coast.

Breakstone's cottage cheese is gluten free even though it lists modified food starch as an ingredient. It's made by Kraft. Kraft will never hide gluten on a label. I'm eating some right now. :)

I love Long Island, but New York does not know how to make good cottage cheese. :P In Michigan I used to eat, Pairie Farms, Michigan, Country Fresh, and Kroger brand cottage cheese. We have Breakstone here, yet I do not really like it, Pathmark is ok, Friendship brand is another that is gluten-free, but I do not like it, Shoprite brand is probably the one I like best, yet I still prefer Kroger brand--no Krogers here. I do not ever buy cottage cheese that states modified food starch unless it is Kraft.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Hmm. well neither of the two brands I have list Modified Food Starch, nor anything that jumps out at me as a problem. I guess I'll keep eating it.

I've never seen a cottage cheese that wasn't gluten-free so the odds are that yours is, too. As always, you have to call and check, but it's probably going to be ok.

Friendship! That's the brand I bought. I liked it. I can't stand any kind with modified food starch in it. No matter the source.

jb & db25,

Would you please elaborate on what kind of reaction/symptons you have experienced from modified food starch. I'm trying to form an opinion on this additive. Thank you so much.

best regards, lm

Larry, I never eat anything that states modified food starch unless it is from a company such as Kraft, which always states the allergens. Modified food starch can be made from wheat, so when in doubt, I do not touch it. Some people feel that modified food starch is safe now that we have the new allergen laws in effect, but some companies are still not listing the allergens on the labels, until the law is policed, then I will not touch modified food starch. Therefore, I do not have a reaction to tell you because I do not use it. Sorry.

I received the following from Creamland Dairies in Albuquerque, NM about their cottage cheese and other gluten free products as of 3/13/09

"Thank you for your inquiry. Creamland Cottage Cheese products are gluten free. The other Creamland products that are gluten free include:

Fluid milk products
Sour Cream and Dips
Whipping Cream
Half & Half
Eggnog

I feel so appreciative when companies respond to a gluten inquiry!

Please note that this information is absolutely wrong. I've seen no evidence that companies are not listing allergens, except perhaps on very rare mistaken occasions.

I appreciate that Darigold actually marks their Cottage Cheese as gluten-free. So I buy that brand. I know most Cottage Cheeses are gluten-free, but I like the guesswork taken out of it for me. Call me lazy, I'll admit it!

They also mark their chocolate milk and several other dairy products as gluten-free. I don't know how widely available Darigold is... there are a lot of brands listed in this thread I've never heard of. Seems like dairy companies are often local or regional.

My favorite Cottage Cheese, which is also gluten-free, is Nancy's. But I know that's not widely available outside of Oregon; it's only in health-food stores in my area, but it's in every store near my mom's house.

gluten-free since mid-2007.
Symptoms: "IBS," chronic fatigue, chronic pain. 

Celiac is a family affair for us; my mom, sister, and one of my sons are gluten free. At least it makes holiday gatherings easier.
