gluten-free At Walmart
0

17 posts in this topic

I'm ecstatic that our new superWalmart carries the Van's gluten-free waffles -- and today I found gluten-free pasta.

I've read on here that some Walmarts carry Gluten Free Pantry products. Where would I find them in the store?

I was so upset for months that our Super Walmart didn't carry any rice pasta. I probably looked more than a dozen times. I mentioned this to a friend and the next day he called and said he had found some and exactly where to look. Sure enough it had been there all along, cleverly disguised in a bright blue box with GLUTEN-FREE in giant letters right on the front. Can gluten cause temporary blindness? B)

I'm thinking that there is a trend here, as the Walmart brand labels ALL gluten-free food and now is carying waffles and gluten-free pantry mixes (they are in the baking section with brownie and muffin mixes by the way) Hopefully we can expect more from them in the future.

Last time I was at the Super Walmart near our home, they had GFP chocolate truffle brownies on the baking aisle. It was a new packaging style I had not seen before. It was a hard box that tapers to a point at the top, but it is wider than the other hard-box ones. The graphic was also different, but the color scheme was the same as the other GFP items. I almost bought some just tho show Wally World how much I appreciate them carrying gluten-free items. If only I didn't have a case of them at home from amazon .com! Of course, I am afraid to open the case bacause that is the only way I can keep from baking and EATING them all. :rolleyes:

Thanks, I was looking for the GFP mixes in the blue and white colored boxes. I'll look closer next time for the different packaging.

Is there anything other specific gluten-free brand products they carry that I'm missing? I just know about the waffles, pasta, and Gluten Free Pantry.

Do you know about the Great Value brand? First off it is usually the cheapest of all the products, second, they list gluten-free right on the package if it is so. I find it much easier, say I'm looking for BBQ sause or something, instead of reading all the ingredients for all the brands I first look at the Great Value to see if it says Gluten Free and then I buy that one.

I found the GFP mixes in the pasta aisle...???? I know, doesn't make any sense. They were with the Cheese Whiz. Doesn't make any sense, does it? There was nothing else gluten free around either. I recognized the green and white design on the box. They aren't in the typical packaging, but angeljd1 has the box as her avatar I believe so you check out what they look like.

Just have to reinforce what a former person said about the Great Valu brand at WalMart........their boxed potatoes are superb (my husband even remarked that they were good and potatoes aren't his thing) and so much cheaper than the name brand with gluten free marked right on the box. We sure have come a long way. I was there today and bought three muffin mixes and will try them three different ways-------I think it will be blueberry, chocolate chip and craisin. They were $2.93 each, and I am sure they would have been much more in a health food store or on line. WalMart is SO SMART to court the gluten free people this way. Some people don't like them, but I LOVE them. Barbara

Ditto. There's someone that posts that they like it so maybe I'm doing something wrong. It always comes out gummy and sticks in my teeth. Tinkyada never gives me a problem.

Our Super Wal Mart also carries Amy's products so much cheaper than our local health food store. I haven't seen the pasta but they have the Gluten Free Pantry stuff too I was so excited. The cheaper gluten free food that is good is the better!

I am usually not a breakfast person, but today I woke up early somehow and was hungry. I was thrilled that I would get to try my new waffles. Alas, I gave my toaster to one of my summer interns to use since I never had a use for it, guess I'll have to wait 6 more weeks to eat my waffles.

As for the Walmart gluten-free pasta, I had a horrible problem with it sticking to the pot. On the advice of a friend I added just a little bit of cooking oil to the water before adding the pasta and that helped quite a bit. I don't find the taste to be that terribly bad, but I spice up my food quite a bit. There is another grocery store in our small town that caries a different brand of rice pasta for about the same price, don't recall the name though.

Renth--what Amy's products does your Walmart have? Frozen dinners, canned soups? I want to know where to start looking.

I used to work at Wal-Mart and if there is something you want find a mgr. and tell them and they will try to order for you. Our local HEB grocery is the same way.

i had that problem and i figured out the solution, after you boil it and drain it IMMEDIATELY rinse with cold water and that makes it all better!

The only thing I have liked since going gluten-free was the Deboles pasta. Rinsing it is key. It even works better than regular pasta in my baked spaghetti recipe. And the good thing is you are rinsing off all the starch so it does not spike your insulin levels. :D

I am so glad to hear that Walmart has gluten free foods, I have been buying items for my teen age grandson. The cost can add up pretty fast. Hope they carry the pizza crusts. He has really been missing the pizza.

Thanks for the info.

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.  
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
