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.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
