Costco gluten-free Products
0

5 posts in this topic

Just recently found out that I have celiac. I love to shop at Costco. Anyone have a list of gluten free items (i.e. meds., supplements, personal care products, etc.)? I can't aford to continue to purchase items to find out later that they contain gluten. Thanks for the help.

Also, I did call and find out that the Kirkland brand of Ibuprofen and the Unscented Baby wipes that I already had, are gluten free. If I know ahead of time that a product is gluten-free, then of course I am more likely to purchase it. Thanks again.

Costco doesn't publish a gluten-free list because they bring products in on good deals and their inventory changes. Yes, some things are pretty much regular items, but there is enough variable that they don't publish a list. About the only way you can tell if an item is gluten-free is to read the label and/or call the 800 # during business hours to verify. I have shopped in Costco regularly for years and that didn't change when I was diagnosed 6 1/2 years ago. They are very good about having ingredients on all the Kirkland products and I have only seen a couple things that weren't their brands that I questioned the ingredient labels.

Kirkland shampoo, conditioner, and body wash

Kirkland spices

And so much more. Check labels but I have purchased items including Food Should taste So Good brand chips, Mission tortilla chips, dried fruit snacks, meat in bulk, Aiellos (sp?) sausage, etc

In their magazine they often note which products are gluten-free and had a good article in their June2010 magazine regarding celiac disease.

We tend to buy nuts, eggs, rice, and quinoa at Costco. We used to buy their soy milk but they changed the packaging and I really dislike the new packaging because it causes waste, so we may stop doing that.

The quinoa I get at Costco is the best deal on quinoa I have found ANYWHERE.

Thanks so much for sharing this information. At least it gives me an idea of what to look for. I could easily spend an hour in Costco before I was diagnosed; now there is no telling how long it will take me!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
