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

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.

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
