What are some good gluten free salad dressings? I know trader joes has a few, and was wondering about other mainstream stores as well as some of the gourmet ones at Whole foods.


Are balsamic vinegars gluten free? wine vinegars?

So far I've been sticking to Kraft because they are so good about labeling allergens I feel safe eating them. I'm having a hard time finding a good Asian Sesame dressing that is gluten free though. That was always my favorite prior to being diagnosed.

I like Ken's Sweet Vidalia Onion Lite, and Honey Mustard. Most of Ken's dressing are safe.

Most of Annie's Naturals are safe as well. I like the Papaya Poppyseed.

Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

Yes. With the exception of malt vinegar, which will always be labeled as "malt vinegar," all vinegars are gluten-free.

I've been using Krafts & Kens. I hope I can find that Papaya Poppyseed sounds great!

I like to make my own, and it's easy too.

Oil
Vinegar
Sugar
Pepper
Garlic Salt
Dried Mustard
Dash of Tabasco
Kraft Parmesan Cheese

Put in a jar and shake. Any type of variations can be made from this.

Yes, Kraft will always list any form of gluten. Most of Paul Newman's Own are gluten free, except the Family Italian (but always read the labels). They also will always list all forms of gluten.

Many gluten free products can be found by goggling the Product Name - Gluten free, as in "Salad Dressing-Gluten Free" or "Heinz Vinegar - Gluten Free".

Salad dressings are really pretty easy and most are gluten-free. Of course wheat MUST be listed and barley will almost always show up as malt or malt flavoring. I've found VERY few dressings with gluten, and in my experience it's always been listed.

i almost always stick to kraft and newman's own dressings, because they have clear labeling policies. the only dressings that i've seen that have gluten are the asian inspired dressings that use soy sauce. salad dressings are pretty low risk as far as i'm concerned :)

Ummm I keep hearing that people are using Kraft Dressings - but the thing is Kraft Dressing use certain ingredients that don't always trigger the "WHEAT ALLERGY" warning such as: Artificial color, Artificial flavor, caramel color, Dextrin, Food starch, vegetable starch, modified food starch, and natural flavors ALL can be made from wheat or barley, and therefore they contain gluten. They can also be made from rice, potatoes, corn, or tapioca all of which are safe, so when you see any of those ingredients listed, call the manufacturer to confirm if that ingredient was derived from a gluten-free source.

A couple of "Wishbone Salad Dressings" are clearly labeled as "GLUTEN FREE" on the back with the Nutritional Information - those are the dressings, I will use. If it doesn't say "GLUTEN FREE" and it contains those ingredients and I haven't called to confirm for sure, I won't touch it.

Kraft has stated they do not hide gluten in any form, meaning they have gone beyond declaring the law required wheat.

That being said, in the US, many of those things you listed are often gluten-free. It is never a bad idea to call the manufacturer if you are in doubt.

Kraft has a very clear labeling policy (wish all companies did!). I feel very comfortable buying Kraft dressings (after reading the ingredient list, of course).

I am very comfortable buying products from any Kraft brand. I know that if I don't see a gluten grain listed, it isn't hiding. Unilever is another huge company with the same policy--disclose any gluten grain by name.

My favorites are Bolthouse Farms, they have so many ones, but are made with yogurt. They are labled gluten-free. Wishbone will lable gluten-free also. I love Maple Grove Farms of Vermont. Their Lime Basil is wonderful, all of their dressings are gluten-free. I'm not a fan of the Poppyseed.

Most Annie's Organic Dressings are labeled Gluten Free. However, They Are Not Certified Gluten Free. I called the company and they state that the dressings containing gluten are made on separate equipment in a different area of the manufacturing plant. This helps me because I have had problems with products labeled but not Certified Gluten Free.
