Rice Noodles

6 posts in this topic

I need some info on rice noodles from the Chinese market. Are they really gluten free or maybe made on machines that have wheat flour on them from other noodles. It is either that or the chocolate rice chex my friend bought me or the rice chex I bought myself. HELP I'm miserable!

I can't be 100% sure without seeing the ingredients for the rice noodles, but my guess would be the rice noodles. I think from what I've heard, Chex is actually making quite an effort to make sure no cross contamination occurs with their gluten free rice chex mix. I have had several boxes of that lately and have not had any issues (although I'm sure they are not perfect). I noticed the other day when I went shopping that some rice noodles in the ethnic food aisle said "gluten free" on them and there were other ones that looked completely identical that did not. I would wager that those ones are probably made in the same facilities that process wheat or they may have a gluten stabilizer (or maybe some flavoring or spices that have gluten). I'd check the noodles you got to make sure that they say gluten free on them. If not, make sure next time you get the gluten free ones :o) Also, on a side note, did you get the brand name Chex? I have noticed that the store brand (I go to Krogers/Bakers) "Chex" have suspect ingredients in them that the brand name Chex cereal does not have. Hope you feel better soon!! I know how it goes!

I know it's so frustrating but it probably could be CC from either. I know some people have been having problems with Chex and if the labeling on the Chinese rice noodles isn't specific, that may be a culprit.

Sorry you feel rotten!

Thank you for your reply-It is the brand name Chex and I also have Kroger but they haven't jumped on the gluten-free wagon yet. I will have to look for gluten-free rice noodles-I got mine from the Chinese market in Denver and although the ingredients list was in English-rice water sulfites- the rest of the label was Chinese. Darn! It was so fun shopping there. Thanks for the good wishes.
