Thanks for the reply. Could you also recommend a brand of peanut butter that is gluten free as well as nuts. Thanks, Mya

That's one label I always have to very carefully check; some of ours does :(

I always read the label but have only seen one that had gluten - Farmer John's contains regular soy sauce.

Thanks for the reply. I have a million questions. Can you please tell me if you have to be careful with plain rice? Is it often contaminated with gluten? Also for my little guy are there any fries that are safe. We tried the Ian's but he didn't like them. I called Mccain today and they have some that don't contain gluten but are cooked in the same areas where they process fries with gluten.....so if anyone can tell me any other types of fries that are safe would be much appreciated. Thank-you, Mya

Plain rice would be gluten-free. Most items with only one ingredient are safe, unless the ingredient is obviously a gluten source such as flour.

Try these links for useful information:

Unsafe ingredients.

Safe ingredients.


Here's a list of companies that have a clear gluten policy. If you don't see "wheat, rye, barley, barley malt, oats" on the labels, its not there, or hidden in "flavors, starches, etc." Although this list is from the United States, the Canadian affiliates of these companies follow the same policy.

VH is a Con Agra brand sold only in Canada. VH Soya Sauce is gluten-free--we use it regularly. McCormick will clearly label any gluten ingredient. Use their single-ingredient spices with complete confidence. We do.

I haven't run across bacon that contains gluten, although watch out in restaraunts for bacon bits. I know Tony Roma's bacon bits do contain gluten.

Peanut butter is generally gluten-free. I can't name one in the U.S. that isn't.

I think you are in Alberta? I am in Alberta too. Kraft peanut butter is gluten-free. Co-op (if you are in southern AB) has a nice Organic no-stir peanut butter. Western Family makes a nice Organic need-to-stir peanut butter (at Save-On Foods or Sobeys). Bacon I'm not sure.

I've lived in northern and southern AB so PM me if you want any info.

I haven't had a problem with Bacon at all. If you are in Southern Alberta, have you gone to gluten-free Patisserie? They make the best gluten free products. They are located in Cochrane (west of Calgary). They have a great restaurant in town called Oliver R Twist. They label celiac friendly dishes on their menu. If you are craving Chinese food, check out Oriental Palace in Calgary. They make the best gluten free lemon chicken.

Here are their websites:
