Hi

We are a ranch dressing home. We like Annie's, but I need something that is more readily available. Does anyone know about Kraft, Hidden Valley, Wishbone, Newman's Own, etc...

Thanks!! :D

All of Newman's are gluten free EXCEPT, Family Italian. Kraft will always list. Hidden Valley in the bottle, at last check was not gluten free.

I do use hidden valley...here is their response....

All Hidden Valley products are labeled in accordance with the FDA food labeling requirements, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (Title II of Public Law 108-282) which requires foods to be labeled that contain the major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. Although most flavors of Hidden Valley dressing contain dairy, refer to the ingredients statement on the back of each Hidden Valley product to find this declaration

OK, but Hidden Valley has vinegar, not distilled vinegar. That's one thing I've always been unclear on. So I didn't think I could use it. I use Wishbone. The ingredients look OK to me and I've had no problems with it...

At least in Canada and the USA, "vinegar" when it appears as a single unqualified word in an ingredient list is safe. The only vinegar to worry about is malt vinegar, which is not distilled (all other types are), and it must be labelled as "malt vinegar." It cannot legally be listed as simply "vinegar" without the "malt" adjective.

Just to make sure I have emailed the company and will let you know the response! I have used Hidden Valley for awhile now with no problems and I react easily!

I called Hidden Valley a couple of months ago, and the original ranch is gluten free, but some of the variations are not. I stick with the original ranch...it's so good! :D

...."at last check" may have been a year ago when there WAS concern about the Vinegar. I would love to use Hidden Vally. I always considered it the best.

assuming peanut free doesn't mean all-nut free, then you can make your own out of cashews. the recipe is on my As Promised, A Few Recipes thread, iirc. I personally prefer raspberry salad dressing. ;) or honey mustard.

I found this recipe that describes the dressing as an avacado-mayonaise style sauce, I guess the avacado acts as the cream/mayo

1 avocado

1/4 c. rice milk (or other acceptable milk)

2 dashes of paprika

1 T lemon juice

2 heaping teaspoons dijon mustard (would this be OK?)

one grind of salt

pepper

I also looked up the ingredients that would be found in ranch dressing and they are:

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill

1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley

1/8 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 dash of paprika

---These added to 1/4 cup of mashed avacado and 1/4 rice milk (or whatever). I might have to try this, sounds much healthier than regular ranch!!!

I also found this website that's pretty cool: www.danandsally.com

If anyone tries either recipe let me know how it turns out!!

Check out Litehouse and Renees. Go onto their website or email them and this should give you the info your looking for. Almost all litehouse products are gluten-free. It's been a while since i had Ranch kraft. But as of 3 years ago it was gluten-free.

Based on their answer you should be able to get the original mix too b/c I don't think it has gluten in the ingredients either!!!

Here is a fun recipe for the mix:

2 lg bags of glutino pretzels

1 tblsp dill weed

1 tsp garlic powder

1 bottle Orvilles Popping and Topping(Last I checked it was gluten-free and they will list on teh bottle)

Mix it all together and ENJOY!!!!

Ranch dressing is easy to make from scratch:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 buttermilk (plain milk works, too)

garlic powder

onion powder

dried dill

dried parsely

squeeze of lemon

pinch of fresh ground pepper

Mix with fork, dump on salad, dig in!

Judy,I think you could use rice milk, but I don't know what to substitute for the mayo--is there a rice-based yogurt available? Or could you make your own mayo with canola oil?

Kraft makes a light ranch dressing that is gluten free. I was really pleased that I bought this before going gluten free and found it to be the only dressing out of about 10 I have in my cabinets that is gluten free! It's decent too!

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of neglect not stupidity.  So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage!   Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
