No longer have gluten free on their packaging..... They have changed their packaging up, removed the gluten free, but the ingredients look the same. Has anyone called them on this yet?

I just bought a package from Publix last week. I saw on the back of the package is does say "gluten free" on the bottom of the back above Heating Instructions. However, I have been wondering about these for a while. I used to use LaBanderita's corn tortillas but switched back to these because they hold up a little better when heated.

Something has changed in my diet and I wondered it if due to this product. I have not called because I saw gluten free on the package but still have some questions.

I noticed this too-- plus there was a marked absence from the grocery shelves here. I also notice they have taken off the COA statement about "made in a plant that also processes...." Uh-oh.

I have been thinking about these in terms of flying flour. It seems like this would be a very hard thing to keep gluten-free. For example, in my grocery, the packages are stcked right in there with the regular flour ones.

I know they are more expensive, but I have changed to the ivory teff wraps or the rice wraps from the freezer section. They are not as yummy either. :-(

I am a Mission Corn Tortilla fan and the package I bought the other day does say Gluten Free on it. Here is some info I got off their website and it's dated 2009 so I'm thinking it's current.



Are Mission Foods products gluten free?

Mission Foods Corn products are produced with 100% corn flour; wheat ingredients are not added to the formulation. These products include Corn Tortillas, Corn Tortilla Chips, Taco Shells, Tostadas, Corn Gorditas, and Sopes. These products are produced in plants that also process wheat tortillas.



Is there any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in corn tortillas?

No. Mission corn tortillas do not contain wheat, rye, barley, or oat ingredients.



Are wheat flour tortillas produced in the same lines as corn products?

No, our corn production lines are dedicated to corn products only. Wheat Flour tortillas are produced in dedicated lines.



Is wheat used in any way to make the corn products?

There are no wheat ingredients or incidental wheat present in the products or on the lines that produce corn products.



Is there a potential for cross-contamination of corn products with wheat ingredients?

All Mission Foods plants have strict food safety programs in place, including a very comprehensive Allergen Control Program.

Thanks for posting this, Puddy. I'd noticed a while back that they stopped putting "gluten free" on the tortilla chips, but the package of tortillas and taco shells that I've been buying at Vons still have the labelling and I've not had any problems with these.

I was just curious. The packaging is different from the last one I bought. I know they used to have gluten free on it. Thinking it may be more of a liabilty issue. I haven't had issues with them in the past. Nor with the few I have had so far from this package.

I noticed the new packaging as well. My package does not say gluten-free. Since the ingredients looked the same I figured I would give it a try. I have not had any problems.

I called them yesterday as they no longer have gluten free on their packaging. She said all the packaging had to be changed as they make flour tortillas in the same room but on different lines. Flour dust takes 24 hours to settle, so I guess the risk of cross contamination is high enough that they can not call them gluten free.
