This is the second time I have been glutened by Amy's. I do not say this lightly, After I felt better I ate anything new from that day(wanted to make sure of the source). I have eaten there NO GLUTEN INGREDIENTS frozen meals three times, two of which I was glutened. It was not severe, I was only sick for 2 days, with the lingering gut problems for 8 days. If I get a lot of gluten it will take me out for 5 days or so( plus the lingering gut problems). Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem, or is it just me?

I'm wondering if it is some other kind of food that I'm having problems with. I have to watch my lactose, but my symptoms were just like being glutened?


Thanks for any help ;)

Trina,

Yes, Amy's got me too. :o It was some time ago. I had a delayed response and the room was spinning for 6 hours. I'm never touching anything by that company again.

Trina, there can be hidden sources of gluten in amy's products. I know from reasearch and from personal experience with other products. If you can get a copy you need to read a book called dangerous grains. It explains about hidden sources of gluten

I can count on Amy's to make me sick every time. So now I don't buy the products. I despise the ccompany.

I stopped eating Amy's after my first year with the disease (I'm on year 6)...it never failed that every time I ate it I'd get sick. While I appreciate their effort to be "gluten-free"...it still makes me wonder what it is making so many people still sick!

I ate some Amy's gluten-free dinners also and was itchy. But my ankles were swollen also, so I though it was too much salt in them.


I heard that Trader Joes carries some dinners that are made by amy's, don't know if it is true.

No more Amy's for me, too expensive, I only bought them because they were on sale.

I had a severe reaction immediately after ingesting their products. So yes, I agree - definitely something in those meals!

Yes, Amy's stuff also makes me not feel good. It's been ages but I remember being glutened by them a long time ago. I stay away from ANY processed foods now.

Yes I have been glutened twice by Amys frozen dinners, It's a shame because they are something quick and tasty to eat. I am not buying them anymore. :(

Just thought I would chime in to say that I do not get sick from Amy's food BUT I have never really eaten the ones that say "no gluten ingredients." Plus, I also only eat the dairy-free ones.

In the past, I have reacted to Amy's. I contacted them and they were incredibly great to deal with. They sent a sample off to the lab at the University of Nebraska for me to be tested from a batch I reacted to. It came back at 33 ppm.

I now eat their rice crust pizza because it is never a problem for me.

You may react to their products, but at least they are one of the honest, upfront companies that discloses ALL their ingredients and manufacturing processes. The products labeled "no gluten ingredients" do not have gluten but any processed food is subject to CC.

My son reacted to their rice pizza once. I called them and it had been tested to contain less than 5 ppm gluten. I was disappointed to find out that my son is so sensitive to trace levels of gluten.

It's not just you. My friend has the same problem with Amy's. It sucks because they really have some great stuff.

That's it. I am going to write the company. I think we all should. This is not OK. If they want to say in business, They need all of us. If they start to lose the people who use celiac.com Then they are losing a large part of there customer base.
