Betty Crocker To Come Through Again!

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.

    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Probiotics are not food products and are not governed by the same laws.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Iceland Girl, I discussed with urologist my celiac diet, and items mentioned on this thread, spinach, chocolate, and nuts, with nuts being the item of the three  eat the most of, and he was not overly concerned, suggested that I drink more water (which I am needing to do anyway).  I am glad there is no more treatment needed as I just found out cataract surgery in one eye is necessary, damn, enough already!  How did your follow-up go?

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
