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.

    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
