My mom made me some gluten-free muffins the other day, and I ate one, then spazzed out when she mentioned baking powder. The canister didn't say anything about gluten, so I emailed Save-A-Lot with the name and UPC code. They were really awesome and got back to me quick:

Thank you for your recent web inquiry and thank you for shopping with us. We’re always delighted to hear from customers who enjoy saving up to 40% on the highest quality groceries by shopping at their neighborhood Save-A-Lot store. The product in which you’re inquiring, the Hilltop Mills Baking Powder is gluten free.



Here at Save-A-Lot, it’s important for us to hear from the people who shop at our stores. Thank you for taking the time to email.

This is what I wrote to them:
I need to know if your Hilltop Mills Double Acting Baking Powder UPC#075725118309 is gluten free. Please let me know asap.


So crisis averted, tokyo saved, news at eleven. Although I had to reiterate the basics of gluten free with my mom - always read the label, if it doesn't say, call or email and don't use until you're sure.

I'm just glad I don't need to worry about this particular brand :)

You mean if it doesn't say gluten-free? That's pretty extreme unless you've found that you are a very sensitive celiac. From what I've gathered, most celiacs can do alright by carefully reading labels, and if there is a suspect ingredient they are not sure about, then contacting the company.

best regards, lm
