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!

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
