You are in luck! Glutino makes a cracker that looks just like Ritz, but it does taste a little like a saltine. They are good. I eat gluten but I still eat them with my son. They are the best gluten-free cracker that we have tried so far. You can find them online if you cannot locate them in a store in your area. We also like the Blue Diamond nut thins, but they are not made in a dedicated facility. He also likes the large Energy crackers with cream cheese and lunch meat on them. The Energy Seattle crackers are pretty good also, they kind of remind me of wheat thins...sort of. ;) The rice crackers grow on you after a while too.

The Glutino crackers are great! They are not hard either, they are flaky and you won't break your jaw biting into them.

Love these crackers!! They taste like a cross between a Ritz and a Saltine.

Interesting that you should ask. Ritz gave me the signs and symptoms of my gluten allergy years before it other wheat products did. I suspect that company's product is a significant cause of my disease.

This topic is from 2007.   I think they were asking for something gluten-free that is similar to 

ritz crackers.  Not sure we can prove that Ritz cause Celiac. :)

The Glutino crackers that look like Ritz can be improved by lightly brushing them with butter, sprinkling with a little salt and running in the oven for a few minutes. By the way, why don't gluten free crackers have salt? Most don't and are greatly improved by adding it.

In Australia Schar has a "Salti" cracker that reminded me of what I remember about Ritz crackers.  I don't understand why this cracker is not sold in USA.  Please let me know if anyone can find a source in USA.

Packaging looks updated from when we were last in Australia, but I assume this is still the same cracker.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
