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 sugar..so that wouldn't work for them.
I am aware that things can change and we always still need to read labels.
Thanks again.

Kozy Shack pudding
Darigold and MountainHigh yogurt
Treetop applesauce
Dole pineapple
Hunts or Jello snack packs
Mrs May's nut clusters
HealthValley corn and rice chex
Swiss Miss SF hot cocoa and Kraft minimarshmallows
Peanut M&M's
Kraft salad dressings (most are gluten-free)
Jack Daniels marinade
Heinz ketchup
Hormell natural selection deli meats and bacon--when on sale I stock up and freeze
Frozen berries at Costco-go thru a bag a week by myself!
Kirkland frozen chicken, salmon, talapia, shrimp, and lean hamburger at costco
Health Valley soups--clearly lists wheat
S&W beans--kidney, black, northern
Kraft shredded cheese
Tillamook pepperjack cheese, yogurt and ice cream (except the obvious ones)
Kirkland organic peanut butter

Other than a fridge full of fruit and veggies, this is some of what is in our pantry/fridge. I tend not to buy the gluten-free branded stuff, it gets too expensive. Cereal and bread is about it!

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 buy many products from the companies listed in this link. They will clearly list gluten.

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:
http://www.hormelfoo...ee/default.aspx
http://www.oreida.co...glutenfree.aspx
http://www.fritolay....odID_364066.htm

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: http://www.johnsonville.com/home.html) 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)

Oh.....
Someone posted the below website on a thread couple weeks ago:
http://www.ceceliasmarketplace.com/
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.

GOOD LUCK :)
