Good Gluten Free Salad Dressings

38 posts in this topic

No one with celiac should be eating anything not made in a gluten free facility. But there are those times that we branch out. We eat only whole foods in our home minus a few things because my 3 children love Ranch dressing.  Being 2nd generation American my blood line is stronger to the tie of celiac. It is very dangerous and mine came out after having my third child. America is the worst country for gluten free because the lack of understanding even from celiacs. My advise to all is to make a food revolution and study celiac from Ireland and Romania point of view. I am learning my way around American labels but it was Bolt house dressing with gluten contamination and they should not be alowed to bear a gluten free label with out listing processed in a facility that process wheat but more than that other celiacs should not be knowledgeably suggesting Bolt house dressing. I just put that out there for people with out watered down ancestral version of celiac disease. Some of us have seizures. I am one of those people. No okaying this product. If some one says there is a reaction to it and warns for people who react to lowppm another member should say I am very sorry for your severity good info. Not judge me. I may look 12 in my photo but I am 3 times that and not even 5 foot tall. Thanks to celiac disease genetic disposition and underdevelopment. Please support celiacs who react to products you do not react to. How nice it must be.

 

These are very strong claims without support.

 

I have what I consider very strong celiac genes.  I am adopted so I do not know the up leg -- yet I do have three celiac genes and my children and grands all have celiac.  I've done a bit of genetic research and I must say - I have no idea what being second generation American has to do with celiac disease.  The numbers within the US are very similar to those of Europe...and other countries are reporting very similar incidence of celiac.  Please explain.

 

As far as your claims for products produced in shared facilities -- it is very important to understand what procedures are in place.  Many celiac-safe restaurants maintain shared kitchens, with good protocols and understanding they are safe for those with celiac.  Homes can maintain shared kitchens, as long as everyone is aware of proper food handling.

 

I can't eat anything processed, including certified gluten-free foods - perhaps there are other items that you and/or your family are intolerant of?

 

For salad dressing I use different fresh herbs blended with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and/or agave.

I got glutened from salad dressing had enough brain energy to come on searching for people with like issue- saw it as a suggested dressing and went on a gluten rampage that made little sense. Was told that I was reacting to something else (carrots and ranch in my gluten free home) When I specifically want it out there that if any one reacts to 5ppm even they should proceed with caution. I was glutened by that dressing any just wanted that out there. I have a specific reaction to gluten. I spent a lot of time in the hospital in the past and my celiac gluten experience isn't diariah as some have, it is stroke like symptoms followed by me passing out and my body emptying. Before I was diagnosed I was on the stroke unit for a week. I have very serious symptoms and I was told by a specialist that my genetics played a role in it. My blood line. I do not have time for a forum or to come on often. My husband is in his 17th year of serving this country and my children are young. I just finished a triathlon, feel great eat well and got glutened. No amount of gluten goes well in my body and AMEN to those who's body does not experience severe fatigue and burning through their head and skin from a half of a gluten free candy bar or cheese cake where it is 10ppm(followed by drooling and not being able to stay awake). I did not get on here to do anything but let it be known for any one out there who is super sensitive to gluten. It is devastating what happens and I am sorry my brain was on a gluten rage.  Still coming off of it. I am seeing great doctors in Washington State and there are others like me. I just really was in shock that I was replied to that I was probably not glutened when I was.  I have learned my celiac is not your celiac and every one has their own path I am sorry for the weird posts again but man when some one gets glutened have compassion. I totally agree that there are restaurants are safe Virginia Beach was one of the happiest places on earth for this celiac. From gluten free Mediterranean, raw juice bars, locally sourced and delicious places for Philly cheese steaks and pizza never was I glutened at any restaurant other than a Red Robin while driving across country in San Diego and one in Seattle. Bolt house farms glutened me today and it's my fault I ate it just really want others o know to proceed with caution and I will no longer post when my brain is on gluten.

Yes...it is possible to be glutened anywhere.  Yes, I have to take my food everywhere I go.  Yes, some of us need to be extremely cautious.  

 

Everyone diagnosed with Celiac Disease needs to be cautious, most are safe at the 20ppm level....yet, some of us can't eat any food not prepared at home.

 

Understand...many people visit this forum...most of which are very new to the life change that a celiac diagnosis brings.

 

We are not dismissing your experience...simply explaining that while we all need to be vigilant, we need to understand the level of DANGER!!!!

 

Everyone is welcome here...but alarmist posts will be met with correction as needed.

My original post was not alarmist I was glutened and said I would not recomend it to a celiac pertaining to people who react to 5ppm I say that was a fantastic post while on gluten brain. I am not an alarmist and a very kind quiet woman every one tells me I have an old soul and I am a natural caregiver but felt like I was being judged immediately by some one responding that I probably wasn't glutened. Anything I replied to after that I am so sorry as I said I was on a gluten brained hormonal freakout and should not have had a computer in my reach I can not apologize enough and wish I could delete that but I was not an alarmist on my original post and I felt very sad and uncared for by a fellow celiac at that moment :I reacted to Bolthouse farms gluten free ranch. But I am one who reacts to anything 5ppm even. My head burns within a minute of eating like acid is being poured on my brain and I pass out sometimes  and that is just if there is any cross contamination.  I would not recommend Bolthouse to any one who is a celiac. Taste good but even if some do not react to low ppm of gluten does not mean it is not there. I want to put that out there for those who are with severe reactions. You are eating gluten if you eat Bolthouse dressing. :/

I just feel unwelcome immediately and apologized and got labeled an alarmist. That makes me sad and I am very sorry.

 

 

As originally stated I will not recommend Bolthouse ranch dressing or a butterfinger to any one who reacts at 20ppm or less based on my experience in reacting to gluten at those standards. That is not alarmist. That is me caring for another human being in my position. Also a recommendation. I am nobody's boss here.

 

I wish you all the best and like I said am very sorry for my whacko glutened post the proceeded my original. That was a celiac who just had a baby(hormones) and on gluten. Please don't seriously tell me no one here can sympathize with me in that. Please if some one says they were glutened don't make them feel like they are don't know what being glutened is unless they are asking if you think it could have been gluten.

You are not unwelcome.  In fact, you are very welcome.  We all get the frustration that comes with accidental glutening.  

 

Please try to understand....this forum has roughly six or seven hundred guests each and every time I log on...for these folks along with those newly diagnosed...we try to keep the facts of celiac very clear.

 

Perhaps if you re-read my statements you wilI see that I never labeled you as alarmist..only your statements.  If those statements were a result of accidental gluten consumption...fine...and I do hope you feel better very soon.

 

Drink lots of water!

I do understand the post-baby hormones and sleepless nights.  This was not apparent in your first post.  Maybe come back when you can sleep for at least 6 hours straight?   :D  I know I felt like a new women at that point.  Then we can help you understand the genetic component.  Also, the immediacy of your reactions to a food worries me that you might also have some allergies or some other issue.

Don't worry. I am not worried by it. It only happens when gluten enters my system. I do have a wheat allergy and that can play a part but my body like some other celiacs I have met on my journey, feel it within minutes starting in the head. All of our bodies are different. Plus a lot of celiacs get gluten rage, me a quiet woman gets a whole new persona that makes no sense on gluten I might as well be put on crazy pills but its only temporary. No one recognized that here. I thought this was a support board. I have am on a EFM list level 4 for my severity and with my amazing specialist and allergist in Everette this is a celiac reaction.  Bolthouse farms Dressing is not the safest choice for any one who is a new celiac or a hypersensitive celiac. But for every one else Enjoy if you would like. And none of that is alarmist it is helpful to have the celiac who could handle it and one who can't. That gives NEW celiacs a better view of judgment on a product.

In getting back to the original topic of good gluten free salad dressings, I have an option for people (like me) who aren't fans of oil and vinegar based dressings. I looooove bleu cheese dressing, but have avoided since being diagnosed with celiac just in case (I get mixed reports if it has gluten or not). If you like creamy dressings, this one is easy, creamy and super tasty!

 

There aren't any specific amounts, all is to your taste.

 

Plain yogurt (preferably the full-fat kind)

Garlic salt

Cucumber, peeled and diced very small

 

Throw everything into a container you can shake vigorously and voila! You may have to adjust an ingredient or two to make it to your liking, but it's delicious on salad! :-)

That sounds yummy and lower fat and calories than most creamy dressings.

This is a 4 year old thread that was brought back.

I wouldn't eat bottled carp either - sounds horrible! ;-)

 

Sorry, I know it was a typo, but I just couldn't resist poking a little fun. :-)

Most, but not all, Kraft dressings are gluten-free. Read the ingredient list. Kraft will clearly list any gluten source. That includes all sources, not just wheat as mandated by FALCPA.

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
