I think I found out why - after reviewing the ingredients - they have added a mold inhibitor which may be a sensitivity problem. I know with the Kraft Cracker Barrel cheese - this has been added as well - which may be why Kraft does not have this cheese on its gluten free web page. The other cheeses yes, but not this particular brand. The inhibitor is natamycin - and it seems that some do have a sensitivity to this type of preservative.

I did an experiment and stopped eating the bread for 5 days and for that time - I no longer had the diarrhea. Now I am a bit afraid to try it again.....

Where did you find a Kraft gluten-free web page? It didn't come up with a google search.

Thanks for that info! I had never heard of such a thing. I am just adding SOME cheese back in my diet OCCASSIONALLY, as I'm also dairy-intolerant. But I've found I can tolerate it sometimes. I was VERY disappointed to learn Udi's has eggs in their ingredients. Again, another item I'm VERY intolerant of. I tried to add it back in like the cheese, but its a no go for now. :(

Actually, Kraft doesn't have a gluten free list for the US. They will clearly list any gluten in the ingredient list, and will also state if the product was made on the same lines as something with gluten.

Per phone conversation 1/11/11.

You may be having a non-gluten reaction to the mold inhibitor.

I edited my post to reflect a phone conversation I just had with a lady at Kraft.

I also happen to have a package of Cracker Barrel Cheese here and I see the mold inhibitor on the label, but nowhere on it is there any mention of gluten.

If you check the other Kraft cheeses - you will see that they do not add the mold inhibitor - and the cheese I bought from Publix markets (USA) say all their cheese products are gluten free and no mold inhibtor is listed as an ingredient.

But regardless of whether mold inhibitor is or is not gluten free - those who used to eat Udi's bread and who did not have a problem previous - seem to now - and the newest ingredient is the mold inhibitor. For some reason, many with gluten intolerance seem to be intolerant to the mold inhibitor as well.

This is the link I have listing Kraft's gluten free products. It is not the U.S. link but the one from Austrailia. I did check the U.S. site and Patti, you are correct - there is no gluten food list there. I called up Kraft and they did say standards are different as well as ingredients from one continent to another....

I so wish Udi's would find something else to use as a "mold inhibitor." My family can eat Udi's but I can't because the mold inhibitor contains HFCS. :( You might have a corn sensitivity or one to corn sweeteners?

I've never heard of such a thing, interesting! I react strongly to Udi's, as did my non-celiac gluten devouring finacee (which was weird) however, I've never had an issue with cheese. I just think it might be a tad too much xanathan gum for my system!

For very sensitive people having trouble with cheeses, try switching to organic cheeses.

here is the wiki on natamycin, which inhibits mold and fungus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natamycin

I have only sniffed the Udi's, (don't laugh too hard :P ) and fed it to my husband and asked him if he thought it was bread - like.

I think I tried the bagels before they added the mold inhibitor, thought, okay, eh, white bread, and went back to baking with the higher protein stuff. If I have to have a bagel there's either Kinnickinick, or the drive to the gluten free bakery where if I must wreck myself on calories at least it was on something really great.

I've had issues with all Kraft cheese that contain natamycin. I can only tolerate cheeses that don't have that ingredient.

I recommend trying Rudi's gluten free bread. I used to eat Udi's until I tried Rudi's. I like the gluten-free multi-grain bread. They also make a cinnamon raisin and a white bread as well. It tastes just like regular bread and doesn't have any strange smell or aftertaste. It is delicious & certified gluten free. It does not contain any natamycin. (At least the multi-grain one doesn't. I haven't tried the other flavors yet.) Just make sure you choose the gluten free version (made in a dedicated faclity) as they make a regular gluten containing bread as well. I get mine at my regular grocery store or Sprouts in the frozen section.

I have not seen it here in Florida - but will keep looking - I will check and see if there is a product locator.

Thanks.

You could also maybe ask your store if that's something they could order for you.

I do fine with the white bread but the Multi grain is a no go because of the flax in it. Grateful for that as my Wegmans has their breads on sale this week for about $3.50. I will say it isn't very filling though I like the 'italian' bread type crust.
