So I am wanting to make some chili cheese dip with Velveeta. Is Velveeta gluten free?

Isn't that a Kraft product? Kraft labels all the important (gluten) allergens clearly.

I have no idea who makes it. I'll have to check it at the store. I was just making my list and wondering if anyone knew. :)

Velveeta is made by Kraft (who clearly labels all sources of gluten) and YES! Velveeta is gluten free :)

As was pointed out before Kraft clearly labels all gluten containing ingredients in the ingredient list. Bookmark this link for future reference and you can check Kraft products easily! Kraft Products

what is it with you people?!! She asked a question and does not need to be answered back with replies like " CLEARLY" !! Why cant you just state here is a book mark to the link, instead of making some of us feel like we should know all of ingredients which may or may not contain gluten, especially since we might be new to this and seeking information.

I was seeking the same information as you and came across this forum and was surprised to see the responses being so rude, especially since some of us are new to this and just seeking information.... but "CLEARLY" we should have a clue to all this!! :)

First. What was so rude about asking if it was a Kraft product and telling her if it was, they will label well? I have since found out that Velveeta does appear to be gluten-free. I told her that Kraft labels clearly.

Second- this conversation was over 2 years ago. Why do you want to turn it into a fight with me at this point?

What "CLEARLY" means in this case is that Kraft (among several other big food companies) will clearly list gluten in the ingredients by naming the grain in question. If you don't see wheat, barley, rye or oats listed by those names, then the product contains no gluten. Indeed, if you telephone Kraft, they will give you the same answer that was given here: "Read the label. Gluten will be listed."

 

And yes, Velveeta is gluten-free.

Hon, you're totally misreading the sentences people have written and misinterpreting a "tone" that isn't even there..

 

The word clearly (when used an an adverb) just means "plainly and obviously" indicated...as in "wheat will be clearly stated on the label"..

 

Take a deep breath and read the replies again. No one is being rude here. Honest!! :)

YvetteLynn (love your name, by the way - I have a beloved cousin by the same name) What was said was this: "Kraft clearly labels all gluten containing ingredients". The "clearly" is just a way to kind of praise Kraft because they ARE so clear in their labelling. There are other companies who will only declare wheat because it is one of the top eight allergens, but not barley or rye because the law doesn't make them.

 

And the "as was pointed out before" was simply stating that the topic of Kraft's labeling policy had been discussed recently (as of two years ago). But if you still don't like Colorado1850's tone, notice that he only made 3 posts since joining two years ago and is long gone.

 

Don't let a misunderstanding chase you away. This is the most supportive and knowledgable group of people you will ever find, when it comes to celiac, and also on other topics too. :)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

This is new to some of us and can be confusing at first, so sometimes its easier to get on line and ask for now until we get more familiar with the products and ingredients....

I had not used this product lately but thought it was a Kraft product. I gave Mo some info so that, in the future, she could find out for herself if a product contained gluten. I thought that would be helpful to her - to teach her how to find this info for herself. I told her that Kraft is very clear about what contains gluten by labeling it in an easy to understand manner. Others re- enforced that.

By the way - Mo did not find my answer rude.
