Do you tolerate the ones that are labeled "no gluten ingredients used." My mom just bought me a few things and sent it from out of state. She sent dried pineapples and also cassava chips.

What do you think? We have no Trader Joes nearby so I haven't tried these. Thanks!

I would read to see if it says something like, "Processed on equipment with wheat", or something similar. A lot of their stuff does. If so, then I wouldn't eat it.

I looked over and over but I don't see that info. That was the first thing I looked for. Weird that they didn't disclose that.

Maybe it's one of those legal things where they don't want to make promises they're not sure about, but they're not actively contaminating the product. I'd call and ask if you're not super-sensitive, but if you are, I'd just avoid the product.

I ate some cassava chips just this week with no issues. Most of their products will say if they are manufactured on shared equipment. I've not tried the dried pineapple but I have successfully eated some trail mixes labeled no gluten ingredients.

It sounds like you are pretty sensitive so I'd maybe call to be sure. Everytime I've dealt with them they are very courteous and helpful! I'd hate to say it's good and you get sick!

I have not had those products, but I have tried many of Trader Joe's Products without a problem and I'm super sensitive to CC. I've had Trader Joes corn crackers, gluten free pancake mix, brown rice pasta, and corn tortillas. Everything was good and reasonably priced. I like Trader Joe's a lot.

I totally forgot to call them today. Bummer. The packaging doesn't have an 800 number, I'll check their website. I am sensitive. I'm grain-free, dairy and soy-free as well. I've not had any Trader Joes before, we don't have one here in town, just a huge Whole Foods.

Thanks everyone!

They make really yummy snickerdoodles. I don't think the box says gluten free on the front, because it's actually more than just gluten free (free of I can't remember how many of the most common allergens). I highly recommend them :)

I make really good snickerdoodles from scratch and it's grain-free :). I am not just gluten-free, I'm grain-free as well(dairy and soy-free too).

Ooooh, could I get the recipe from you? They sound awesome. I keep meaning to go back to being grain free. And I'm back in Oz again now so it's not like I can eat the trader joes ones anyway.

I think I got the recipe from celiac.com(not the forum). It's made from potato flour. Let me check and I'll post. Pls DM me if I happen to forget!

Oooh I totally want this recipe too! Pretty please! :)

Edit: I think I found it. Snickerdoodles

But dang, it's got xanthan gum! :( Does that not bother you, being grain-free? It's bad bad bad for me.

They seem to be really good with mentioning shared equipments on the ingredients label. After having been glutened a few times from their share equipment/no gluten ingredients potato chips I don't go near the stuff on shared equipment. Luckily there's plenty of stuff that isn't made on shared equipment at Trader Joes. If you eat legumes then try out the cilantro/jalapeno hummus it's absolutely delicious. It's in the shorter/wider tubs as far as their hummus brands go, the taller/thinner brand is made on shared equipment.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
