I am having a terrible time getting Costco to give me a list of Kirkland brand products that are gluten-free!! I love Costco, but they are being very difficult. They will only tell me by specific product, they won't provide a list. i am almost ready to dump my membership!!

I don't think Costco keeps a gluten-free list. Most Kirkland products are just rebranded mainstream products so you'd have to know if the name brand is gluten-free. For example, Kirkland bacon is Hormel and gluten-free. If you have questions about specific products let us know and we can likely help you out.

I agree with the previous posters. Costco doesn't mfr them, and the product's ingredients can change, so it may be difficult to keep an updated gluten-free master list. Also, what they stock varies with store location and with time. My wife always tells me "if you see something at costco you want, just buy it as it may not be there next week."

When I spoke with our local COSTCO, they explained that it is impossible to have a list since manufacturers and ingredients change so frequently. That makes sense to me.

I was particularly interested to see if the Kirkland brand of spices is gluten free, but they were unable to help me, alas.

However, there are a number of products in the store that say gluten-free on the label. In my area, Kirkland (made by Mission) tortilla chips are one, as are the hot, roasted chickens. For the chicken, it says gluten-free on the display sign above the shelves that house the chicken.

Maybe others here will post their favorite COSTCO (Kirkland or otherwise) gluten-free products? Come on, everyone, list what you love!

More from me:

Thick Sliced Bacon (not Kirkland - I do not remember the name of the manufacturer - I will check)

Chobani Greek Fat-Free Yogurt (fruited, low sugar)

Many of the Kirkland Vitamins are labeled gluten-free

Lara Bars

I will post more as I think of them.

Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

I want to know about the Kirkland minced onion and garlic powder. The containers don't list ingredients at all. That leads me to believe the only ingredients are onion and garlic, but I'm not positive.

I love Costco in general and buy a lot of my food there including

The 10lb bag of Tyson's boneless skinless chicken breasts
Hummus
Kirkland tortilla chips
Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour
Bob's Red Mill Quinoa
Big bags of rice
there's a ton more, but that's what I can think of off hand.

Minced onion and garlic powder: I wasn't able to get an answer on anything in the spice section. I've purchased minced onion from other sources and have had reactions, even though the packaging didn't list any allergy warnings. I've been sticking to McCormack for both, just to be on the safe side.

How I hope labeling laws continue to get more informative -- we've made progress, just not all the way, yet.

I am pretty sure the spices are McCormick. I use the garlic powder and ground pepper without issue. Not sure about the minced onions.

Some actually carry the McCormick label, at least at the COSTCO by me. Do you know if the Kirkland brand is also made by McCormick? That would be wonderful!

Anyone drinking Kirkland coffee?  Is it gluten-free too or is there cc issues?  I'm glad it's summer so I can brew my black tea while I wait for an answer! ;)

Wait?  Are you talking about the rotisserie chicken?  That would be such good news.  My husband usually does the Costco runs, and I've been wondering about that!

That post was 3 years ago but I think the rotisserie chicken is still gluten-free

Hey, I had just rolled out of bed and was doing my early morning bleary eyed roll by. I didn't stop to think that I could be misunderstood. Yes, the chicken was gluten free a week ago. It is great. You can just have chicken for dinner by throwing together a few quick sides and then you can pick off the easy to get rest of it for chicken salad or something. Then... throw the rest in a pot and you have chicken soup! Of course, we're only feeding 2 with a single chicken. With teens in the house you'll be lucky to find a bone left if you just set it on the table for dinner. :lol:
