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.

Dx'd with Celiac June 2010 via positive biopsy. I got tested because both of my kids (3 and 5 years old) have multiple food intolerances, with gluten being the worst offender.

Free of: grains, dairy, soy, legumes, nightshades, nuts, fish, eggs, pork, citrus and tropical fruits (latex allergy), stone fruits, melons, squash, strawberries, flax, cruciferous veggies and celery.

Yes, I'm HUNGRY.

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.
