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.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
