Kroger's Gluten-free List
0

13 posts in this topic

I ran across this while looking for something else (of course!) and thought someone here might find it useful. It is from Kroger's website and is a 3 page pdf file.

Thanks for posting, but I really feel that the Kroger list is a joke. They only put things on there that are obviously gluten free. Like the list I had under popcorn, they only listed the kernels. They have so many more gluten free products than what they list. It's ridiculous. I refuse to buy Kroger brand products, even though I shop there all the time because they are right down the street from my house. B)

Thanks! I don't ahve a Kroger around me anymore but my family in GA does so now we know when we are visiting where to go!

I wish Coastco (Kirkland brand) would do the same! I called them yesterday because we are HUGE Costco fans and they said they don't ahve a list and won't tell me any product they make that are gluten-free! They said they never know where certian ingredients come from from month to month! I say that is a huge quality control issue! so sadly i will give up my Kirkland food brand stuff.

Some of the items on that list are NOT so obvious, at least to the beginner. And in the past I've always found Kroger to be extremely cooperative when you call them. I realize some people don't like calling, but that's the life of a person with celiac.

I have been a loyal shopper at my local Kroger grocery store spending $4-500 there per month X 13 years=$78,000. As we all know gluten-free diets aren't cheap. I called my local Kroger store today to ask the meat dept. if they had Smithfield sprial sliced hams and was told that they did carry that brand. I explained that I was on a gluten free diet and that if on the day I shopped if they were out of that brand that I would be unable to just pick up another brand and that I needed a ham for entertaining. I asked them if they would reserve a ham for me and was told No by the meat dept staff and manager. I don't expect the whole world to dance around my dietary needs but I am quite angry that a grocery store that I have been shopping at for that long and have given so money to cannot accomodate this simple request by a loyal customer. I called Whole Foods Meat dept to ask about a gluten-free ham. The staff was friendly, accomodating and happy to give me information on the Wellshire hams they have, which lists gluten-free on the label, and also happy to reserve one for me. I called Kroger's manager and explained the above to him and to let him know that I was disappointed in their lack of being able to accomodate a simple request from a long term customer with special dietary needs. I told him I had reserved a ham from Whole Foods and was no longer interested in purchasing a ham from Kroger but thought that he should be aware of my unhappiness with the store. I thought it was unwise of them to risk losing a loyal customer (which thay have) during the economic downturn. As businesses compete for money and business those who can offer good customer service and be accomodating to reasonable requests from their patrons will be the ones who will survive.

I shop at King Soopers (which is part of the Kroger brand) all the time... they're right across the street from me. I've never bothered asking about a gluten-free list or anything, but compared to other stores in my my area (Albertson's, Safeway), they've done a MUCH better job of having gluten free STUFF. Granted, they don't put the "gluten-free" label by the price on the shelf of a lot of gluten-free items, but they've got a gluten-free freezer section and a gluten-free section in the health food aisle, too.

I appreciate the fact that they've gone further than almost any other regular grocery store out there. I tend to like them a bit better than Whole Foods, too. They're not so stuffy :)

I have NEVER found any of the Whole Foods in Virginia to be "stuffy." The staff at Whole Foods has always been friendly and helpful. Whole Foods provides many HEALTHY gluten-free options, esp. compared to Kroger. Kroger has a gluten-free section but it is mainly cookies, cake mixes i.e. JUNK food. The gluten-free flour selection is limited and we do not have a gluten-free frozen section. I rarely purchase food items at Kroger because I base my food purchases not only on being gluten-free but also on the fact that it is healthy food. Whole Foods offers organic produce and gluten-free meats without antibiitics/growth hormones as compared to the meat that Kroger sells. Whole Foods has always been willing to accomodate special orders and my dietary needs. They have a gluten-free bakery and frozen food section that has quite an extensive selection.

The food may cost more but the quality and service is worth the extra cost. I am grateful that I have a Whole Foods to shop at in the area where I live, esp since I have had to be on this gluten-free diet the past three years, otherwise I would have much more difficulty managing my gluten-free diet.

I've been diagnosed celiac since Sept 2012. My latest blood test came back with mild level of gluten reaction and I wasn't feeling so great either. I started an elimination diet and wondered if I also had IBS-D. I just couldn't figure out WHERE I was getting gluten until I stopped taking Kroeger brand generic Ibuprofin. 4 days later I felt 100% better! I want to get re-tested and see if it was gluten in the Ibu or if it is the ibuprofin itself that my body was reacting to.

Just a heads up. The original info on this thread is from 2007. I would bet the Krogers list has changed in 6 or 7 years since the original post.

    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
