Posted 10 April 2007 - 09:34 AM

Hello all, I thought I'd share this information...

After a recent unpleasant experience at Fry's (Kroger) grocery store (they would give me absolutely no information on their gluten-free products) I contacted Safeway to see if they could provide a list of their gluten-free products. I received a massive response, which is an immense help, especially considering I've only been gluten-free for 4 days! :) Shopping has taken about 4 times longer than it used to...

Of course, as with anything else, be sure to check the label before consumption/use of these products, as their ingredients may change at any time.

The following is the response I received from Safeway:

We received your request for information on Safeway private label products for those troubled with gluten-induced enteropathy or celiac-sprue. While we are somewhat familiar with the malabsorption syndrome, we do not presume to prescribe any of our products for any specific diet(s). On the other hand, we are happy to provide what information we have which might be useful to you.

We have over 5,000 different products in our Safeway private label product line and we do not have a listing of ingredients available for the general public on each of these items so we are not able to comply with all requests. We do suggest that you read carefully all ingredients labeling information on products that you purchase.

We can tell you that our frozen vegetables and fruits should be okay since they do not contain any other ingredients but the vegetables or fruits themselves. The exception to this would be our frozen vegetables in sauce.

Another group of items that would be acceptable are non-breaded seafood items, poultry that has not been breaded or stuffed, and our Lucerne/SELECT eggs. In other words, all fresh meats, seafood's and eggs.

Acceptable dairy items would be all fluid milks, except chocolate milk when starch is added and the source is not listed, cottage cheese and natural cheeses. Most bakery items we believe would not be acceptable for use in this diet.

We have taken the initiative to solicit all of our suppliers for lists of their products that are gluten free. This list is attached for your easy reference.

As near as we can determine, the above information is correct; however, we cannot guarantee that changes will not occur from time to time in our ingredient listings, or vendor changes that would affect processing methods or raw ingredients. We do appreciate your interest in Safeway Brand products and hope that we have been of some help to you.

Wow!! That's a heck of a list!! Safeway is my favorite regular grocery store. I'll have to peruse the list more closely to see if I can expand my list of usual items. How appropriate that Safeway should provide a list so we can shop the "safe way"! (I know...bad pun...but I couldn't resist!)

Haha! You're right!! You're so punny :)

I've been a Fry's shopper for years and years (it's always been my mom's favorite, and always seems to have the best prices). The response from Safeway and the extreme lack of help I received at Fry's, however, has changed my opinion, and I will definitely be shopping at Safeway from now on--of course, with the exception of Trader Joe's :)

I've also been thinking of trying Sprout's. Have you tried or had any luck there? I know they have a lot of fresh produce, but I haven't been there in a while. I imagine they may also be quite pricey.

Thanks for your input!

Yes, I also shop at Trader Joes, Sprouts, Sunflower Market and Wild Oats. I find different things at each. (Such a pain!) Not sure where you are located, but my Sprouts in Tucson carries alot of Glutino items that my husband and son enjoy (Pizza, alfredo pasta, mac & cheese). Sprouts is the only place I can find them. It is pricy, but worth it to keep the teenager gluten free.

We order bread from Kinnikinnick (tapioca cheese rice bread and their chocolate glazed donuts are awesome!!)

FYI: I recently heard that Wild Oats was bought by Whole Foods, so that may change the choices there.

Good luck! ;)

I don't see that there is a Sunflower Market near me (according to their website).

There is, however, a Wild Oats market not too far from my work! I live in the Phoenix area, and work downtown. I'm excited to check it out!!

I've got to go to Sprouts! I didn't realize the Glutino had those types of products available. Daniel will love to try some gluten-free mac'n cheese!!!

I ordered the white sandwich bread from Kinnickinnick, should be here in a couple of days, I'll let you know what we think. Hopefully it will be good news :)

Thanks for the great info!

I'm glad you've now figured it out! This is pretty tough to get the hang of. Some things that seem like they should be naturally gluten-free aren't, and vice versa. It's really frustrating at times! Hopefully it gets easier with time.

I'm so glad I could help!

Take care,

does anyone know if the 'harvest medley' salads are gluten free? at the top they say 'safeway select' and they are those salads that are prewashed ready to eat. one of them has frosted almonds and sweetened dried cranberries and the almonds have 'natural and artificial flavors'. if anyone knows that'd be great ! these salad bags are so convenient and the nuts/fruit adds some flavor!

Has anyone been eating the Safeway brand potato chips or corn ships they list here? I have yet to find a potato chip that isn't cross contaminated. It would be great if theirs are ok.
Thanks for getting the great list, I will definitely be making a trip there soon.

When I emailed Kroger directly about individual products, they did reply directly, and also sent me a paper gluten-free list. This was for the Kroger out here in CO, Albertsons. But I contacted Kroger them selves. Might be helpful to try that route.

It probably depends on where you are. Near me (Natomas area in Sacramento, CA) the Safeway has a small gluten-free section, that I seem to remember had gluten-free flour. The Ralphs has a better selection, so I shop there mostly.

If you post where you are at, there will probably be someone who can recommend places to shop.

I'm so glad that I discovered your posting. I shop at Safeway and this list will make my life so much easier. I'll still read labels though just in case. My local safeway has only ever been helpful and will even order in special produts if you request them.
