Inin Need Of A Current Gluten Free Product List (Canada)
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi there I am very new at this and am wondering if there is an up to date gluten free product list. I found one on here from 2004, but I am sure things can change. It would be handy to print off a list to take to the grocery store. Are there certain brands that are better than others at not hiding gluten in products and displaying it on labels? Are there certain brands that I should stay away from even if it does not list gluten in the products? How do you know what companies are using the same equipment to produce foods with gluten as to produce foods that are not containing gluten? Any specific companies to avoid- even if they don't list gluten on the package but are cross-contaminating? Also can anyone recommend gluten free mixed nuts as well as almonds.We use presidents choice organic peanut butter, I am not sure if this is gluten free. Can anyone recommend a peanut butter? Is vh soya sauce ok? Also any recommendations for shampoo and bodywash. One last question what spice brand is gluten free? Ok I lied does anyone know if Montreal steak spice is ok? We are lucky to have Knickknick here in Edmonton but it would be nice and save some money to be able to shop at the grocery store as well and be confident I am choosing gluten free products for our son. Any suggestions are much appreciated. I feel quite overwhelmed and this forum is really great. I just want my two year old to feel better and I want to make sure I am making sure to eliminate all of the gluten from his diet. Thank-you, Mya

Kraft and ConAgra will list wheat and maybe gluten on their allergy statement.

I posted about peanut butter in your bacon post so look there.

I buy plain nuts from Superstore or Costco and make my own mixes. I freeze them if the bags are too big.

VH soya sauce is gluten-free. Also, Braggs from Planet Organic is gluten-free.

Not sure about Montreal steak spice. I stick to McCormicks in the small glass jars with the green labels since they are all gluten-free. They are expensive but I don't like to get sick and small amounts of spices stay fresh.

If you are in Edmonton, it's great because you can shop right at the Kinnikinnick factory which is slightly cheaper. I miss that.

When I lived in Edmonton I went to Save-On Foods, Sobeys, Superstore, Costco, Safeway and Planet Organic. I looked for the sales especially on things gluten-free pastas and things like that. I bought large bags of plain rice either at Superstore in the Asian aisle or at Costco. If you eat deli-meat then prepackaged Freybe is safe. The Strathcona Farmers market is awesome. Sunworks Farms is owned by a celiac family and they are certified organic and humanely operated. Their sausages are all gluten-free. I love Sunworks!

It's very overwhelming at first but it does get easier with time. You are lucky to be in Edmonton; it is a very easy place to be gluten-free. Join the celiac association of canada and the Edmonton chapter. They will send you a beginners package with a booklet to take to the grocery stores (like a little gluten-free dictionary) and other great info.

ConAgra -- be careful. I had a VH Teryaki Sauce that looked safe but I called just in case and sure enough the VINEGAR I questioned them about was Malt Vinegar!! They don't always state a gluten ingredient. This right after the lady tells me that they will list all glutened ingredients on their labels. It angers me that companies can't just say what kind of vinegar are in their products right on the label! It would save us so many phone calls.

OP - if you PM me and send me your email address, I will send you my gluten-free information (if you don't mind me contacting you by email). I am in Toronto, diagnosed a year ago and have collected product listings from various canadian sources; thus, they are somewhat current.

OP - Uniliver will list a gluten containing grain. Also, see their website. They have a list of no gluten added products -- you can refer to it for your question re: body lotions, shampoos, etc

If anyone would be able to send me a list as well, that would be awesome. I just got diagnosed 1.5 weeks ago.

Hi, I would be interested in any product lists that you may have. My email address is wcfritz@sasktel.net. Thank You. Carla

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
