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.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
