Aldi Gluten-Free Products!
0

2 posts in this topic

Recently, I have seen a ton of gluten-free products popping up on Aldi shelf.

First, Gorilla Munch and Panda Puffs have been sold at the two local Aldi locations for $2.79 a box! I was so happy when I saw them on shelves. I believe they will only be available a limited time but it is still exciting.

Second, I started noticing that Aldi started labeling some of there own products as gluten free recently. For instance, I have been buying hummus there for years - even pre-Celiac! Yesterday, the Grandessa roasted red pepper hummus had "Gluten Free" added to the label. Delicious! Also, the Baker's Corner marshmallows and the Lunchmate and Fit & Active deli meats are all labeled gluten free if they do not have gluten ingredients. The LunchMate mesquite turkey is fantastic -- and a little over $2.00 per package. :)

Also, I contacted a rep who confirmed with me that the Fit & Active Light Poppy Seed salad dressing and Fit & Active Honey Mustard salad dressing are gluten free as well. (They are not labeled gluten-free at this time).

Happy shopping!

I'm super excited as well! We started buying the Envirokidz cereal there last week, for just $2.49 a box! It's $3.99 at local grocery stores and $4.99 at health food stores, so that's a killer deal at Aldi!

Also, I've been getting their Fit n Light (is that right?) yogurt covered raisins. I've read the ingredients so many times I almost have them memorized and can't find anything suspicious. We've been eating them for a few weeks now and I haven't gotten sick a bit, so I guess they're safe!

Woohoo for Aldi!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
