I know that companies change their formulas often and we still have to read the labels. But I thought if we just have a basic list to start with it would make shopping easier. I am located in Texas. There is no guarantee my list is totally accurate but I did my best. This list does not address the CC issue either. Please add your list... I will edit this list with the source in [ brackets ] as time permits.

Great list. It might be easier to add to your list.

I don't believe I saw See's Candy on your list. With the exception of some of their decorated specalties, their chocolates are now gluten free according to their customer service. I believe they're stores are just in the western US though?

Bubbies Pickles, my very favorite pickle in the whole world is gluten free, both the dills and bread and butter chips as well as their dill relish, this from customer service.

Also M&M's candies, milk chocolate peanut almond and dark chocolate. The crunchy blue variety contails gluten.

CoffeMate creamers state they are gluten free on the container.

Many Hormel canned chili products are gluten free. I buy the chili and beans with no problem. You can find that info on other lists on this site.

Many Thai Kitchen products. They will clearly mark theirs. I love their sweet chili sauce and their rice noodles.

And Haagen Dazs vanilla and chocolate ice cream. They have about the simpliest ingredient list of any ice cream out there. For other flavors you need to check the ingredient list for obvious gluten. Their ingredients are as minimal as possible though and clearly show barley or wheat in the content list.

Great Value --Walmart house brand
Wegmans-house brand for their grocery store

both label all applicable products gluten free. Makes it easier to shop and buying the store brand is cheapier. I prefer the Wegmans pasta sauces over Ragu any day.

Hormel chickens label gluten free

Starburst candies are labeled gluten free

UTZ snack products are labeled gluten free.

Hope this helps


great list by the way :)

Yes, I know Canola Oil is gluten free but it seems to bother some people with Celiac disease...me being one. So I put it on at the end as a note"***Canola oil seems to be a no no…I don’t know why." But I should have said it seems to be a no no for some.

Thank you for your list. I'm pretty new at all this. Went gluten free in Sept 2007. Didn't know about the Lay's Stax chips. I live in East Texas and there's not alot of Gluten free items that I know of in the regular grocery stores. I do shop at Walmart and love the fact that if their product is gluten free it's printed on the label. If I use anything gluten-free that's not on your list I'll post it. Right now I don't think I have anything to add. Thanks again for you help.

Hi, I called Gevalia and they said only the unflavored coffee was gluten-free, but the flavored could have trace gluten d/t cc or where they get their flavorings or chocolate. I NEVER risk their flavored coffee. I would double check or ammend the Gevalia to check on flavored coffees.
Ghirardeli coffee is reportedly safe as their flavored version just has their chocolate in it, and they have full control over the process. (That info is from November 07).
Best bet? Buy the plain and add your own organic spices! (cinnamon, nutmeg, ground hazlenuts, cardamom, cocoa powder, etc.)
Newman's own is fine, even the flavored.. the almond biscotti is just almond oil and almonds... listed as tree nut allergy)
and all of Starbuck's coffee is Gluten free.
Could not get a straight answer from Seattle's best about their flavored coffees, but the plain "should be fine" and that is not good enough for me, lol! I like a straight up, honest answer!
Hope this helps, I just did all my coffee info updating in November 2007.
I personally get my coffe from a local roaster who checks everything before he roasts and keeps allergans in 1 roaster and plain in the the other. So far he has been FABULOUS and has never "glutened" me! He washes the beans before he roasts, so I don't even worry about cc. I would urge everyone to check if there is a local roaster in your area, it is such a relief to know I am not risking my health to have a cup of coffee!
(and yes I do bring my own coffe to my friend's homes when I visit, it is just too easy to get glutened via cc via their grinder or coffee pot!)
Edit: almost forgot, ALL of Annie's Organics are clearly marked as being gluten-free, if they are gluten-free. If you don't see the gluten-free, don't eat it. It makes it so easy to buy thier products.
All of the Wegman's products are clearly marked with allergens, including gluten.

Here is the list to Burt's Bee's products... not really food, but the stuff does go on our hands, and faces so they become unintentional food at times, so I thought this would "count" http://www.burtsbees..._Restricted.pdf
Add taste of Thai products: Chicken and Rice seasoning,Fish sauce,Peanut salad dressing,Spicy peanut bake, Pad Tai for 2,Pad Thai sauce,ALL their Rice noodles, Coconut ginger soup, Peanut Noodles, Red Curry Noodles,Coconut Ginger noodles.
A taste of India: Masala Rice and Lentils, Spiced Rice with raisins,
Taste of China, ironically, not ok (microwave boxes). per website.

I add freshly ground cinnamon to the coffee grinds when grinding my coffee. It makes a wonderful flavored coffee! I honestly think pre flavored coffees are nasty, so it works for me :)

I love your list. Please feel free to add this one. I just got an e-mail from HuyFong regarding their Sambal Olek chili sauce. They said they contacted their vinegar supplier who assured them that the vinegar used is gluten free. They offered me the supplier's number for independent verification.

Hi Lisa (and everyone else).

I just joined today and have already gained so much insight. Thank you so much for sharing all of your legwork Lisa. I was diagnosed with Celiac in the Spring after spending 6 weeks in bed due to the illness. I didn't think I'd even make it to my son's high school graduation but the diet had improved my health quite a bit by then. My old G.I. wanted a capsule endoscopy because she felt I suffered from Celiac a very long time before I was undiagnosed. I was one of those people who also put off my colonoscopy far too long (don't do it!!!).

Right after my son graduated we moved to a new State - my husband was transferred. I was doing very well when I first saw my new G.I. (I was more concerned about getting my son genetically tested before he left for college). Recently I have taken a nosedive and am in constant pain. I researched canola oil and found that it was part of the problem. When I saw him the first time he ordered blood work. I saw him again yesterday and he told me my blood work came back still showing a high amount of gluten (or the markers for it - I'm still learning the terms). I told him I really wanted the capsule endoscopy and I'm going to have it as soon as my insurance clears it.

I had purchased the Triumph Dining gluten-free Trio (Grocery, Restaurant, and Dining Cards). I recommend the books but Lisa's list is just as good (if not better) and won't weigh down my pocketbook. Thank you all for sharing and helping a newcomer to this illness and these forums.

Hi Loey,

Welcome to our online world! This is a nice list for starters for sure. It doesn't hurt to double check things on the list though just in case things have changed since 2008. There are also safe food lists on the main site here, and lists of non-safe ingredients too.

I think you will like it here. There are lots of helpful people and advice around.

Thanks for the reply and warm welcome!

I was only diagnosed in the spring, started feeling well a few weeks after eliminating gluten and then had a major setback about three weeks ago. My G.I. in NJ thought I had it for a very long time and was surprised I hadn't been diagnosed earlier. I moved to another state the day after she told me my test results. I took my son in to be genetically tested by my new G.I. in before he left for college (phew, he doesn't have it) and the new doctor felt I was all right. When I saw him yesterday he told me that my blood work showed high markers (is that the correct term) for gluten (even though I've been following it religiously). I'm taking a proactive approach and told him I felt I should have the capsule endoscopy. I'm going for it in two weeks. Right now I'm playing detective. It's hard to be sick in a new state where I don't know anyone. I can't wait to feel better so I can look for a teaching job. I'm an optimist and I think this forum is going to be really helpful. I'm also a resource geek (I wanted to be a librarian before I went back to Grad School for teaching) so hopefully I'll be able to give back as much as I get.

I had purchased the Triumph Dining Trio and out of the the three products I found the laminated restaurant cards to be really useful. They have the language of the cuisine you're eating on one side and then they have it in English on the other. How long have you been gluten free?

Loey

P.S. I read that the FDA doesn't acknowledge barley, oats and rye as gluten so some companies can be saying something is gluten free when it's not.

I got so excited when I read that Carnation Instant Breakfast was gluten-free, but after checking on their website it states that the mixes are "Made on equipment that also processes wheat and soy". As for the drinks, they all contain barley :( So sad...
