I emailed Kroger about gettinga gluten-free list of products, and got this reply...

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a list of gluten free products, but we have Registered Dietitians available to answer your gluten questions regarding our products.  This way we can ensure that you are receiving the most accurate and up to date information.

Many of our Kroger Brand condiments are gluten free, such as Kroger Brand Ketchup, Kroger Brand Yellow Mustard, and Kroger Brand Mayonnaise. They do contain vinegar, which is distilled from grains, but the Celiac organizations state that distilled vinegar is fine for people with Celiac Disease now (unless your gut is not healed) because the distillation process of the vinegar would remove all the gliadin.

Please feel free to call our Dietitian line at 1-866-632-6900 if you have any further questions. Thank you again for your inquiry.

Sincerely,

Monica W. Smith, RD, LD

Corporate Registered Dietitian

Ain't Kroger great! They have so many gluten-free items and their dieticians have been wonderful...I have them on speed dial on my cell phone. Their pharmacists have also been really helpful.

In case you were not aware, many of Kroger's OTC meds are also gluten-free since they are mfr by Perrigo in their gluten-free labs. The Perrigo ones have a logo on them that looks like a rectangle that has rounded edges and a comma-like hook off the right side. This same company makes some of the OTC products for Sam's, Target, and Wal-mart. Be sure to check for the logo since not all store brands are made by this same company.

I have not had any problems with a lot of Kroger brand items and they have always been able to answer my questions. I buy a lot of their products because I live 3 blocks from a Kroger.

I still can't ingest anything with distilled vinegar. I react from it-maybe not from the gluten, but I feel crappy nonetheless!

I stick to apple cider vinegar or balsamic.

Is red wine vinegar bad for us? I think it is but I can't remember.

I can't keep vinegars straight; anyone care to clarify as simply as possible?

I find that vinegar gives me gas so I try to avoid it when I'm in the presence of others. Doesn't make me feel bad but tends to clear the room out of people pretty quick. :lol:

Malt vinegar is pretty much the only one we need to avoid.

Now I'm confused (what's new) re. vinegar. The Kroger quote says "unless your gut has not healed". I am new to the diet and my gut has not healed (I'm pretty sure). Should I be avoiding distilled vinegar? I'm still having alot of tummy troubles and I would like to see some improvement.

I noticed that when I started gluten-free I couldn't handle distilled vinegar too. I've been gluten-free for a long time and it still bothers me. I feel the pinning pains and feel funky. THe only vinegars I'll use is apple cider and you can use red wine and balsamic but don't use malt vinegar. I'd stay away from it for a while then maybe when you feel better try it again but monitor yourself. Vinegar is pretty ruff on the stomach anyways.

Thank you for your input regarding vinegar. I'm only about two weeks into a gluten-free lifestyle and I'm still having stomach cramps after almost every meal. I'm finding that I'm soy intolerant too. So it's getting better as I remove gluten and soy from my diet. I found a gluten/soy/dairy free greek salad dressing recipe to make from scratch and KNOW there's nothing with gluten or soy in it, but every time I eat it my stomach hurts. I've been trying to figure out what's going on, but now see that it's probably because I'm "unhealed" inside. It calls for red wine vinegar and grey poupon.
