I am seeing more and more foods labeled gluten free at Costco, which is encouraging. Unfortunately, I think some of what they carry varies by where you live, and even store to store, so this may or may not be helpful. We have 3 Costco's within 15 miles and I have found different things at every one of them. (california) When I find something I like, I stock up if I can, since you never know when it will be gone.

They have a good selection of gluten free lunchmeats. My family likes tacos, so in a pinch, I will buy the pre-cooked pork carnitas or shredded beef, both labeled gluten free. The McCormick's taco seasoning is gluten free(but not the chili seasoning) Madras lentils, rotisserie Albacore Tuna, frozen Mahi Mahi and unseasoned frozen salmon, organic hamburger in the refrigerated meat section (slightly more expensive, but worth it- tastes much better) Almond clusters (can't remember the brand right now) all the dairy products. These definitely are cheaper at costco than anywhere else I've found.

lol, so good to see other people that just love Costco as much as I do! : ) I would agree with the poster that said they are regional though. What you find here isn't found there. And I've been a bit aggrevated to find that a few items I've become addicted to will suddenly disappear for a LONG, LONG time before it makes it back on the shelves. Olive Tepenade is one such item. But an addiction did force me to come up with my own olive tepenade that is very much like the one they now have on the shelves again! But my all-time fav would be their roasted chickens!! I get a couple nearly every week!

I love the artichoke/jalapeno dip there, and the Chachi's salsa, and there was an honest-to-goodness gluten-free CAKE AND FROSTING MIX on the shelves recently! I bought one even though I had no need for a cake, just so that I could support their decision to carry something so special for us. :)

I have a question. Has anyone determined whether the tri-tip (Omaha Steakhouse, I think is the brand, in the black package) is gluten-free? I suspect there's hidden gluten in the marinade, because I have had random reactions twice after eating their tri-tip. I checked the ingredient list and didn't see anything suspicious, but my instincts tell me this is not a coincidence.

If anyone has information on the gluten status of the tri-tip, please let me know! Thanks a million!

Picked up a container of Austin Blues (Hardwood Smoked) Pulled Pork by Hormel Foods (gluten-free) last Sunday @ Costco. It's prepared & refrigerated in a Neutral Sauce, so you add your own sauce for flavor. It was a coupon special that's gluten-free.. We tried it tonight and it was good.. While shopping @ Costco, I met up with a friend who noticed the Pulled Pork in my shopping cart. He offered me his coupon, so I'm going back for 2 more (limit 2) this weekend...

I just bought that. Didn't realize you have to add sauce. What kind of sauce do you use?

We used a home-maid Barbecue Sauce.. Instead of using Worcestershire Sauce, we substituted gluten-free Soy Sauce..

New to this and only know I am gluten intolerant. do you read every label? I think I'm getting it as to what I can't have in terms of "ingredients", but does every product need to be labled "gluten free" before I can put it in my mouth?

Okay. I will check to see if I have any sauce. We try not to do soy.

No, not at all. There are lots of products on the shelves that do not have any gluten, but for which the manufacturers make no gluten free claims for various reasons--such as "processsed on the same lines as"; some ingredients obtained from other suppliers who do not certify them as gluten free, etc., etc. You just have to read the labels carefully and use your judgment.

I went to Costco today and got Veggie Crisps, Riceworks, Crunchmaster rice crackers, Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread, and Kirkland pure maple syrup. The Riceworks are really good dipped in the hummus I made yesterday! Haven't tried the other things yet.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
