So the mix is gluten free.

It was my understanding that the Hidden Valley Ranch dressings in the bottle are not. Am I correct?

We used to worry about the modified food starch because its source was unknown, but with the new allergen labeling laws, you can check the allergen statement to see if it contains wheat.

I haven't done that myself ... I prefer to support Kraft, who was clearly labeling all gluten early on. :) Hidden Valley made us keep guessing.

I too like to support Kraft, but Hidden Valley is just too good! When I called them a couple of weeks ago they said that their original ranch (as well as the dry mix) is gluten-free. Quite a few of the ranch variants were not, but I didn't write down the information because I was so happy about the original ranch! :D

I received this from Hidden Valley Oct 2007:

Thank you for contacting us about HV Full Cal Bottled Salad Dressing - Original Ranch. We always appreciate hearing from our consumers.

The FDA requires that we list the following allergens on our ingredient labels:

1. Egg

2. Soybean (excluding high refined oil)

3. Dairy

4. Peanut

5. Wheat (barley, rye, oats, or any source of gluten)

6. Fish

7. Crustacean

8. Tree Nut



Our only bottled dressings that contain gluten are the Crushed Garlic Caesar, Fat Free Honey and Bacon French, and the Fat Free Original Ranch with Bacon.

For the most accurate source of information, please check the back of the ingredient panel for every purchase as ingredients may change.


Again, thank you for contacting us.

We use the Hidden Valley Ranch original mix quite a bit for dips. My daughter *loves* it. I do believe it has MSG which is troublesome for some people, so that's something to watch for, but my daughter has never had a "glutening" because of it.

It's also good if you take about a tablespoon of it and add it to a bag of microwave popcorn. Yummmm.

If only they would remove the milk ingredients....sigh...

I use the Ranch mix from Lipton...not the standard one, they have a Kosher version that is indeed gluten and dairy free. DO NOT use the Kosher Onion Soup Mix, this one has gluten...the normal one from them does not.
