Kroger's Gluten-free List

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.

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than location I went to. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their name for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist and tell her what ahppened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against the therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me as well. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I ma hoping my report is amended or not new negative comments are added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      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.
