Betty Crocker To Come Through Again!
0

26 posts in this topic

Got this from Connie Sarros' e-mail newsletter. Didn't know if it had been posted here yet:

Betty Crocker Does It Again!

The prevalence of celiac disease has had quite an impact on food companies. They hear the demand for more gluten-free products and they're responding.

Betty Crocker will soon have your grocer's shelves stocked with gluten-free Bisquick! But wait... there's more. In mid-July, you'll also be able to buy gluten-free Hamburger Helper in three different flavors ~ Chicken Fried Rice, Cheesy Hashbrowns, and Beef Fried Rice. The packages will be clearly labeled on the front "Gluten Free".

I'm looking forward to trying the bisquick mix. I never liked hamburger helper so I don't care about that. Their brownies are my favorite, nice and fudgy not cake-like.

This is a double-edged sword for me. On one hand... I can't WAIT for the bisquick... I've missed dumplings in stew! On the other hand... I don't need ONE excuse to embrace convenience food!

I hope they bring it them to Canada as well! So far their gluten-free products are made in the great white north, but not sold here. GRRRRRR....

I found Beef Fried Rice Hamburger Helper labeled Gluten Free tonight. Chicken fried rice and cheesy hashbrowns I haven't seen yet with the new label. Forgot to check to see if gluten-free Bisquick was out yet. Hopefully at some point they will introduce a rice pasta or corn pasta version of the more "tradition" kind to see how reaction is instead of just the more obvious ones being reformulated.

We just had the Asian Fried rice where you just add chicken tonight for dinner and it was great, family said it is just as good as P.F. Changs. The best part was I found it at Walmart for a $1.50 a box. Made two boxes and a couple of cut up chicken breast for $3.00 had a $6.00 dinner that fed 3 people with left overs. Thanks Betty Crocker

I'm with you there! I love having the option, though, especially around the holidays!

Hmm, that's not my experience with that cake mix at all, and I am also from the south. :D I found it to be moist and tender and not so grainy. It does require quite a bit of butter, but it is cake after all.

I use their mixes all the time...my family and friends love them, and my son and I are the only Celiac's.

I saw the Asian chicken recipe, but I figured it was normally gluten-free, and didn't realize until now that this was a reformulation. It could be a good thing, but since Mrs. Leeper's seems so incredibly salty, IDK how I'll do with Hamburger Helper again

Make sure your local stores are aware. I have asked ours to carry some products they did not have and some they have been happy to oblige :)

This is very good news! I used Bisquick all the time for pancakes and drop biscuits.

I tried the cake mix and had better luck with the chocolate cate, brownies, and cookies. I've never had good luck with yellow cake mix, gluten-free and non-gluten-free.

I have been making the Mrs. Leepers meals, but am looking forward to gluten-free Hamburger Helper.

Thanks for keeping up on new products!

A friend just gave me a box of the Asian Chicken Helper from Betty Crocker. It says "Gluten Free" but the ingredience says "Yeast Extract" is in it. Does this concern anyone? Usually when I see "yeast" I avoid that product. Maybe I am too cautious.... just wondering what you all think - before I try it!

If you have a problem with yeast, you should avoid it. A few people do. Or if you are a strict vegan since yeast is a living organism. Otherwise, I don't know why you would.

Not sure why you avoid it. Yeast is gluten-free.

I guess in my head I connected "yeast" with bread so have been avoiding it, never thinking that it wasn't part of the wheat problem. I also fought a chronic intestinal yeast infection for 2 1/2 years and had to do the anti-candida diet for that long. Yeast was my enemy then and my hatred of it carried over, apparently needlessly, into my Celiac diet. Thanks for setting me straight! :)

Do you mix in the pumpkin instead of the butter? Or as an additional ingredient. An entire stick of butter seems like a lot of butter.

I keep checking for the gluten-free Bisquick at my local (Austin, Texas) grocery stores. No luck yet, but I spoke to a manager at HEB yesterday and am hoping he'll try to get it.

I found it today at Walmart! They had the Bisquick and the Asian Fried Rice Hamburger Helper.

1. heat oven to 350 (325 for dark or nonstick pan). place paper cups in the muffin pans

2. in large bowl, beat cake mix, pumpkin, water, oil, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice w/ electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. beat on medium speed 2 mins, scraping bowl occasionally. put into muffin pan (I use a cake pan)

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
