Salad Dressing

Okay so Kraft says any gluten is declared on their label so I bought some ranch and some italian dressing. I am pretty sure these are gluten-free based on reading the label. Anybody else use them and know?

;) this is so hard--isnt it--reading everything we put in our mouth--i dont know about all ofKraft salad dressings--i do know that Miracle Whip Light is a no-no--there are salad dressings called Annie's and they state in the ingredients that they are gluten free--i find them in the speciality diet dept of Kroger--my sister uses Western Fat Free made my Wishbone--she is celiac too and a diatician, i ask her most times if i am in guestion of something and beleive it or not--sometimes something she can eat is something that will bother me--so it's still trial and error--keep your chin up---Deb :D

YES!!! Newman's Own salad dressing ~ Ranch, Creamy Italian (plus many more!)~ are gluten free. If you go to the Newman's Own web site ~ http://www.newmansown.com ~ you can print a list of all their products that are gluten free. Their spaghetti sauces are also wonderful. :rolleyes:

If the Kraft dressing ingredients don't say wheat, rye, or barley, it's gluten-free. That's how easy it is.

Read the Miracle Whip Light label before you try it, but I'm just about 100 percnet sure it's gluten-free. Once again, if the ingredients don't include wheat, rye or barley, it's gluten-free.

I am a newly diagnosed Celiac, but have been gruesomely living with this problem for about 4 years now. I absolutely love Miracle Whip Light. To make sure I could eat it, I personally called and talked to a representative of Kraft who informed me that "if Miracle Whip Light had gluten in the ingredients it would be listed" (I specifically asked about the "modified" ingredients and was told they did not contain any wheat/gluten whatsoever). Unfortunately, however today I had some in tuna fish...and I put a good amount of miracle whip light into my tuna and i became very sick. I know that everyone is different and people react differently to certain things but I for one can tell you it must have some in it...however having stated that I am supplying a website for kraft that lists its gluten free foods...if u notice Regular Miracle Whip is listed as gluten free (Miracle Whip Light is not listed)...so Regular may be ok. I hope this helps!

I was always told there was something in the light that changed it so we could not have it, so I never tried it, this was back before the labeling law. I never truly trusted Kraft when they said they could be "totally" trusted anyways!

I can't have soy, so all of the salad dressings are off limits to me, unless they are canola oil based. Hellmann's had a canola oil based mayo that was very good, then they decided to make it Cholesterol Free a few months ago, now they have added soy to it and I can no longer have it either. When they first changed it, I didn't catch the change, the label is so similiar, I didn't even notice it. When I broke out in my "soy/corn rash" I racked my brain trying to figure out where I was getting the soy or corn from. It just happened one day, that I noticed the huge ingredients list on the mayo and realized it was different. Sometimes, and I know it's wrong, I will come to trust a brand, which I did with this mayo--thankfully, I had only had it for maybe 2 weeks when I realized my mistake.

In our house we use Wegmans or Kraft, it depends on what I pick up when I am out.

I don't use commercial salad dressings. Salad dressings are easy to make. Below is the one I make:

2/3 Sunflower Oil (or other oil of your choice)

1/3 Plain Rice Vinegar (or gluten free vinegar of your choice)

Salt. pepper, oregano, and garlic powder to taste.

This dressing is tranportable since it does not need to be kept cold. I take it out to eat and when I travel.

If you contact Kraft, they will MAIL you a complete list of their products indicating gluten free, lactose free. It's my bible :D Merry Christmas to all.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
    • SIBO, microscopic colitis, probably celiac here (celiac's a self diagnosis, was gluten-free before getting tested). Now my doctor is suspecting hashimoto's due to low heart rate, so getting tested for that probably tomorrow. Anyway, I feel your pain... Low FODMAPs on top of gluten-free is tough. One thing that has helped me a lot is betaine HCl with meals. I can actually eat some onions, garlic, and fruit again with much less trouble. Make sure you get a safely gluten-free brand. Country Life is certified gfco, so is tested to less than 5ppm and is what I take. Good luck!
