Kroger Cheese
0

7 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if Kroger Mild Cheddar cheese is gluten-free? I looked on delphiforums, but it wasn't listed. The ingredients look ok (I think), but I think I ingested gluten this weekend, and am trying to figure out the source. The cheese is all I can think of. ?? (I confess - I'm a newbie). :o

Look on the back of the package for a toll free consumer services phone number. Give them a call and ask them. They may even be able to supply you with a list of products that are gluten free. I know that in general Kroger stores are gluten aware...that is, they seem to have a growing selection of gluten free items.

I've been intending on calling Kroger myself, too. I shop there often and it would be nice to feel safe buying store brand things instead of name brand.

If I make the call before you, I'll post....

Basically, I have yet to find a hard block cheese like cheddar that isn't gluten-free. I don't even call about them any more. Yes, the Kroger cheese is gluten-free.

Kroger does not have a gluten-free list but they are VERY good when you call about specific items. Some people grouch about them not having a list, but I think it makes sense. The reason they don't have a list is because ingredients change. Something that's gluten-free today might not be tomorrow.

Hmmm....well, I guess the reaction wasn't from the cheese. :blink: Maybe I just got some crumbs that I wasn't aware of then. Glad to hear the cheese is gluten-free!! Thanks for the post!

I use the Kroger brands cheeses (both shredded and block) and I have not had any problems. I believe I called months ago about it. They have a great dieticians line to call in and get help with their products.

Maybe someone else in the household used a knife on bread and then on the cheese? Or you cut the cheese on the counter that had some crumbs on it? Always be careful to prepare your foods on a clean counter or do like I do and get a clean plate out to use to prepare my food on. Hope you're feeling better.

Yeah, I'm thinking I just got some crumbs. I usually am very careful, but sometimes when I get in a hurry (because of low blood sugar) I do get careless. Sometimes I'm just so darn hungry!! :rolleyes: But....I'm not complaining. I spent years not every having a single tummy growl. I welcome them now. Heehee...

P.S. I am feeling somewhat better today. Thanks!!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
