Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for writing!

Our products are formulated for use by majority of consumers, and not

specifically for those on restricted diets, it is possible our product

formulations may change at any time. Since product formulations change from

time to time, we do not have a printed list of products that identifies those

products that contain specific allergens or gluten. The best advice we can give

you is to check the ingredient list on the label. Ingredients that may contain

any of the top eight allergens as defined by FDA (Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Soy,

Fish, Seafood, Wheat, Eggs, and Milk or Dairy, as well as any ingredient that

may contain Gluten are always listed on the label. Therefore, we suggest

reading all ingredient labels carefully. If you cannot determine whether the

product contains the ingredient in question, we suggest that you don't use it.

We hope this helps!

Your friends at Lawry's

As they have said, if any ingredient comes from a gluten containing source (ie. wheat), it would have to be listed. So you can assume that modified food starch does not come from a gluten containing source. I use some of their marinades. Quite a few of them do have wheat/gluten in them, but you should be able to see that on the label, and determine which are safe. Hope this helps you out !

This page lists all marinades and you can ck on their ingredients--

If there's wheat, rye, barley (don't know about oats but that wouldn't be hidden anyway), it will be clearly listed as such. If it's not, then the MFS is safe and so is the product..

I thought among the top 8 allergens in the USA is only wheat and not rye, oats and barley. That would mean, that yes, they would list wheat on the label, but not rye oats or barley.

Oops, didn't see the part that said "as well as any ingredient that

may contain Gluten are always listed on the label". Yes, in that case it should be listed on the label.

I contacted Lowry's by phone recently about another of their products. They were very helpful and clearly stated that their products would state any ingredients that would contain gluten.

Is this how the law really works? What is listed here, it makes it sound like the product must always state it has wheat/gluten in it. I know of a number of products that do NOT list gluten or wheat as an allegeren BUT, the company says its not gluten free.

Take Van Camps Pork and Beans for example.

I called them up yesterday, I asked if it was gluten free. They said they could not answer the question because of the vinegar that they include. They can't garuntee that that vinegar is gluten free.

But reading the wording the new law, I thought all suppliers for food vendors also had to list them. Con Agra(Van Camps) even claimed this, but sort of back off on it. They said something like.

All the ingredients in our VanCamps P&B are gluten free, except for the unknown distilled vinegar. We cannot gaurentee that it does not have gluten in the vinigar.

They told me that right after they said all the suppliers of ingredients are also required my law to list.

So what is the deal here?

The new law does not go into effect until January 2006 so for now they can tell you whatever they want. And when the law takes effect, barley, rye and oats do not have to be plainly listed. Some companies do list them, but it won't be required.

However, distilled vinegar is always safe no matter what the source, so it really doesn't matter in this case.

I'm confused about the modified food starch here. So, this particular company WILL list anything containing gluten, right? So what's the food starch, is it corn? Or something else? I guess it's hard for me to explain what I'm talking about. If they will list gluten why not just list specifically what everything is? I guess I mean if they are vague on that then I don't really trust them. Am I making any sense? :unsure:

The MFS in this case could be corn, tapioca, potato or a number of other thyings that aren't one of the top 8 allergens or have gluten. The reason they aren't more specific is that the source of the MFS could change and then they'd have to change the label all the time. But they are saying they'll change the label if the MFS suddenly has gluten. BTW, MFS very, very rarely comes fom wheat. It can, but almost never does.

When a company tells me to just read the ingredients I rejoice. This is what I want.

Something a lot of people have put on here is that they HAVE TO list if it contains gluten that is not true. Lots of marinades sauces, and even sodas have something called Caramel Coloring. Many times you have to be suspicious of this stuff. Nobody has to put that is contains barley, or rye even and many times Caramel coloring contains Barley other times it does not you just have to do your research.

    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Do you have celiac disease?  This is a celiac forum and that's what we are most knowledgeable about. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Amalgam fillings do not have lead that I know.  What you read was probably mercury.  You could have them removed, but only by a dentist who has the knowledge and skill.   I think you need to do some more research so that you can make an informed decision. I wish you well. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Welcome! Go ahead and rant!  Scream and holler!  Weep.  It is totally normal to go through a grieving process.  We have all been there!  You are NOT alone! When you pick yourself off the floor, start researching.  Learn about the gluten free diet.  Start with easy-to-digest foods that are naturally gluten free (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, etc.).  You may have to give up dairy for a short time until your villi heal (the villi tips release enzymes that help digest lactose (milk sugars).  Skip all the processed foods until you are improving.  That will give yourself time to forget what bread really tastes like.  Avoid eating out for a few months -- it's easy to get cross contamination.  Best to explain your gluten-free needs when you, yourself, "get it".  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" for valuable tips.   You can go out and drink with your friends.  You might have to avoid alcohol for a few months.  But when healed you can drink!  Just no beers, malted beverages.  Most distilled liquor (e.g. volka) is gluten free.   So, is wine.  Skip the gluten free beer for a long time.   Find other celiacs in your area.  In the meantime, visit with us.  It does get better.        
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Hi everyone, I'm going through some health issues right now and when searching for possible causes of my symptoms and blood test results, I see lead poissoning popping up quite a few times. Now, I have many amalgam fillings in my mouth since childhood, so naturally I'm thinking if that might play a role and if removing them would make a difference. But from what I read online removing the amalgam fillings is not recommended and does not bring any health benefits. I have mixed feelings about this issue and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance for any comments. Greetings from Mexico. :-)

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
