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.)

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
