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.
