Due to the 2006 Food Labeling Law, companies are required to disclose if any of their sources are from wheat. So, unless it states wheat, the food starch is safe. Chances are, it is made from corn. (Corn is not an 8 main allergen, so it is not required to be labeled.)

Further, Philly Cream Cheese (etc) is a brand of Kraft. Kraft is a company that goes beyond the Food Labeling Law, and will disclose any source of gluten...will not hide it in MFS, Natural flavors, etc. If the ingredients look safe, then it is!

Enjoy!

Is it good? I always loved the no-bake cheesecake kits, but I expect cross-contamination from the packet of crust crumbs, so I haven't made any in years. I wish this new cheesecake filling came in smaller containers, because I plan to eat it right out of the container and don't want to find myself pigging out on the whole thing!

My family tried it and after three teaspoons full (one for me, one for my husband, and one for my three year old) it went in the trash. I generally love no-bake cheesecake, but this just didn't live up to our standards.

I use the no bake cheescake with no problems at all. I just use a gluten-free graham cracker crust. I throw the regular crust away as soon as I open the box.

Where do you find gluten free gram crackers? I didn't think such a thing existed. I miss S'mores a lot.

I like to use either Arrowroot Cookies or Enjoy life snickerdoodles for cheesecake crust.

I am feeling much better thanks but still anxious about Thursday.

The picture is my DD and DS at Disneyland. They both have dark glasses and are kind of blurry so hopefully they won't get mad I posted it. But if they do at least then I'll know they visit the site, sneaky Mom move.

It is an actual "graham cracker" crumbs for pie crust.

And this is one of the brands, can't remember which one this is, I have tried a couple. (I remember one being kinda dense).

Thanks so much, I eat the KinniKinnick bread all the time but have never checked out the web site. I love that company and can't wait to try these. Thanks again.

I just have to add this... If you place an order with Kinnikinnick online it's $10 shipping throughout the US. I always get the cinnamon rolls, bagels, and chocolate glazed donuts. They're all delicious! And of course, their bread is phenomenal compared to the competition. :)

I made a cheesecake for Easter dinner and experimented for the crust with some rice bran crackers I found at the health food store. I think the brand name was Health Valley; they're square and embossed on the top and have the texture of a firmer shortbread cookie; a little sweet. I crushed them up and the crumbs looked exactly like graham cracker crumbs. One box is about enough for two crusts. Here recipe I used:

Mix one cup gluten-free crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter; press onto 9" springform pan. Beat 2 8-oz. Philadelphia cream cheese, 1 can Eagle milk, 3 eggs, 1/4 tsp. salt until smooth. Stir in 1/4 cup lemon juice. Pour over crust. Bake 50-55 minutes until top springs back. Cool and top with gluten-free pie filling (or top with sour cream sweetened with a little sugar and drizzle with the glaze-y part of a can of gluten-free pie filling.)

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
