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:

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.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
