Ingredients: Potatoes, non-hydrogenated canola and /or soybean oil, salt, dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate.


Are these okay to eat? I've read about some having issues with canola oil, and the dextrose I found on a safe list. I'm just scared of making myself more sick until I can see the doctor and get a proper eating guide.

Thanks in advance! It will be nice if I can have these for breakfast.

Sounds like the Ore-Ida ingredients. Unless your allergic on top of celiac disease, should be fine. I've had them & the fat steak fries.

But what the heck is sodium acid phosphosphate? And why do potatoes need it? Maybe to keep from getting brown? The stuff they put in food .... :huh:

I'm glad you mentioned that, the sodium acid pyrophosphate was the one that I was "Huh?" about. I understand the word sodum, and acid, but the combination with pyrophosphate on the end made me question it.

They are Safeway brand hashbrowns, I'm not sure who makes them for Safeway.

I'm going gluten free starting today (I just want to feel better), I'm not sure if I should taper it off or go cold turkey. I'm seeing a doctor later today just to talk to him and get his recomendations. Funny enough, I mentioned it to my mom who is a auto-immune insulin dependent diabetic with IBS, and she has actually quit dairy and some bread products due to the IBS meds not working.

She's going to go soon and and see about a gluten free diet as well.

This is all just so overwhelming, I'm glad I have this site and you guys :)

From Wikipedia:

"Disodium pyrophosphate also is found in frozen hash browns and other potato products, where it is used to keep the color of the potatoes from darkening."

It would be gluten-free.

Thanks Richard! I have a horrible feeling I'm going into this pathetically.

My doctor was more sympathetic than what I've read from others experiences, but he could not really give me any information on the diet. He said "Stay away fom beer, bread, and anything that has those things in it" pretty much. I advised him I've been browsing the can and cannot lists of this website and he said to use it as a tool. I understand he's not a nutritionist, I was hoping he had phamphlet style information so I wouldn't have to check online all the time.

Stylo, I realise it's been two years since your original post. But just thought i'd share this with you.

Your mother probably has the metabolic syndrome. She would really benefit from staying completely off Gluten and dairy in all forms.

The disease manifests itself in several autoimmune conditions including insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthiritis, interstitial lung and kidney disease etc.

The contemporary treatment is to supress the immune system with immunosuppresants but ask her to try a completely dairy and gluten free diet for a few months.

We went to a restaurant for breakfast this morning (Upper Deck, Campbellton). I ordered the hashbrowns, hoping that they would be made like my dad used to make them: shredded raw potatoes and onions cooked on the grill. What I was served was little cubes of pre-cooked potatoes coated in a breading that contained flour, and then deep-fried. When I questioned the waitress about it, she confirmed that the hashbrowns contained flour and that the restaurant did not offer any other potato dish that did not also contain flour. I felt like a victim of misleading labeling.

On of the "Rules of celiac" never assume ingredients - always ask. :angry:

I don't mean to be mean, but YOU have to do the asking ahead of time. Many types of hashbrowns have flour in them. Hashbrowns ALWAYS throw up a big red flag. And just because they aren't the same ones your father made doesn't mean the restaurant was being misleading. It simply means they were using crummy commercial frozen ones.

In the good news column:
Waffle House hashbrowns are gluten free. Just ask them to please use clean gloves when they fix your food. I have always found Waffle House people to be extremely cooperative.
