Gluten Free Name Brands

8 posts in this topic

I was wondering if in this thread some people..especially the vets..would be willing to name some of the name some of their favorite name brand food items that are gluten free and haven't affected them.

Not stuff that is actually like a gluten free company..but everyday name brand grocery store items.

For instance..I have fallen in love with some of the Humm Foods Larabars. They aren't in the gluten free section. They are in with the regular nutrition bars. I found out about them online then checked my store for them. They are gluten free and contain very few whole ingredients. I love keeping these around for something quick.

For anyone who likes a really healthy nutrition bar..give these a try.

I'm also trying to keep more gluten free things in the house period and not just stuff for me as I am limited..but stuff to keep around for the rest to enjoy that are everyday name brand items..but gluten free. Would make the house so much easier yet not make them think they are eating gluten free to all the time.

One thing too it seems I have noticed is that there are not that many regular shelf gluten free everyday cereals that are healthy too. I think I saw stuff like Fruity Pepples was. The others can't eat a lot of that wouldn't work for them.

I am aware that things can change and we always still need to read labels.

Thanks again.

I love Trader Joe's Basmati and Wild Rice Blend. It takes the same amout of time to cook as regular rice(14 min.), and has dried veg., like green onion, mushroom, red peppers, parsley, etc. I use it in porcupine meatballs, stuffed peppers, and a chicken and wild rice dish, as well as rice salad. It adds alot of flavor all in one "ingredient". I buy alot when they have it.

I can't live without Pacific's chicken broth either.

Ore Ida products, from their gluten-free list, are staples in our house.

HealthValley Corn Chex(I use for crumbs in meatloaf and meatballs)

Hormel Naturals ham and turkey

I don't buy too many actual gluten free products either. I buy most of my mainstream food at Wegmans, they will brand their private label as gluten free.

Jack Daniels BBQ sauces

Heinz ketchup

Hormell natural selection deli meats and bacon--when on sale I stock up and freeze

I don't know if ingredients have changed but this past summer I called Heinz and e-mailed them to see if the Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce was gluten free and they said no. I can't remember what the gluten was in it b/c I have thrown away the container & it was months ago.

They do list the following as being gluten free:

Jack Daniel's EZ Marinader -- Teriyaki Variety

Jack Daniel's EZ Marinader -- Garlic & Herb Variety

For BBQ my family really likes Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce.


Hi Gluten15 --

When I started out I looked online.

You can pull up the product webiste and see if they have a list, a lot do now. I looked up foods on here and made a list of things that I would want then when I went to the store I would look at the label. With reading in books and websites on how to read labels and what to look for/be cautious of and then seeing what others ate I learned to read labels better. It was stressful at first so I ate a lot of safe foods that I knew were gluten free (but got really tired of them ha).

I have also e-mailed some of the main companies and they either say you need to read the labels, that the labels will clearly state if it contains gluten or they e-mail back with a list.

Here are some links to some companies gluten free lists:

Kern's Nectar Juice is gluten free (BUT the Mango Horchata and Coffee Horchata are NOT gluten free)

Dinty Moore Beef Stew is gluten free (I like to put some cheese and pepper in it for flavor)

Classico Spaghetti sauce (all red and white sauce) is gluten free

Johnsonville Sausage (website: if you click on each item and look at the ingredients it will have at the end of the list gluten free if it is. (this one I just found out recently but I want to buy and use with other meat in meatloaf and spaghetti)

Someone posted the below website on a thread couple weeks ago:

On their website you can join for free -- they e-mail you M-F once a day a gluten free product. I joined couple weeks ago and it has been interesting some of the items that they e-mail about. Pretty much all of the items you can buy at the grocery store and don't have to go to a specialty store / health food store.

    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms ( First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here.
    • New to this--first gluttened exp. How to feel better?
      Just adding to what others have said.  It does take some time but it's likely you will start to feel better.  It took me about a year but now I feel great.  A good probiotic might help.  I use one from Synergy that my naturopathic doctor sells at her office.  I have gotten in the habit of emailing restaurants before I try them and have had very good luck.  One owner of a very popular restaurant in my area took the time to reply and said she had Celiac disease (she sent great detailed info about their food).  Many of the people responding will even tell you who to ask for when you come in.  Good luck and hoping you feel better soon.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      i am presuming that the boils were dx as acne inversa, which can have a relationship to celiac in some persons
    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.

      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. Thank You,
