Kraft Ranch Salad Dressing
0

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if this is gluten free. I know that they don't hide gluten, but I'm still confused about that because they do use the terms modified food starch and natural flavors. Here are the ingredients. Remember this is Kraft Ranch.

water, soybean oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, egg yolks, whey, modified food starch, garlic juice, natural buttermilk flavor (buttermilk, maltodextrin, natural flavor, sald, cultured cream, modified food starch, lactive acid, citric acid, karaya gum) Monosodium Glutamate, xanthum gum, phosphoric acid, with sorbic acid and calcium disodium edta as preservatives, polysorbate 60, lactic acid, artifical color, spice, dried parsley, lemon juice concentrate, natural flavor.

I am looking at my list now and Kraft Rancher's Choice, Creamy Cucumber Ranch, 3 Cheese Ranch, Peppercorn Ranch, Ranch with Bacon and Ultra Low Fat Ranch are gluten free. From the list that I have, it's the Caesar's that you have to stay away from and also the Catalina with Bacon.

Yes, it is gluten free. If there is no wheat,rye,barley,oats specifically on the label then it is fine. Those questionable ingredients that we usually have to hunt down are not a problem with Kraft because they won't hide anything under those pesky ingredients.

I can understand being nervous but it really is that simple -- if it doesn't say wheat, rye or barley in the ingredients, it's gluten-free even if it does have MFS, natural flavor or whatever.

Newman's Own dressings are all gluten-free

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

When I went gluten-free I got a ranch dressing that said gluten-free right on the bottle and then when I tried it it tasted like tartar sauce. Gross! The Newman's Own ones look that way too. It's like it has big chunks in it and it's an odd color. So, I didn't want to try those ones. That's just me though. I'm a ranch snob! I used to eat only Hidden Valley. I don't know for sure if theirs is gluten-free. I haven't researched it that much. I should call the company.

Karen,

I like the Kraft Catalina, lite. That's ok isn't it?

Also, do you know of any substitute for catsup? I am a fan of Heinz catsup on my scrambled eggs.

Hi!

Yep, on my list Catalina Lite is okay. Also, Heinz ketchup is gluten free, so there is no need to search for a substitute.

Here is a link to the delphi forums list which is quite comprehensive and broken down into convenient categories and is always up to date:

Have a whole bunch of scrambled eggs tomorrow!!!! LOL!

I have a list of gluten containing foods from a celiac website and thay have stated to stay away from any foods that contain modified food starch, because it can contain a gluten binding agent in the process.

I would see how you feel after you eat a little bit of it.

The list also says to not eat caramel coloring for the same reason. But other websites say that it is fine. I find when I drink certain root beers with the caramel coloring I feel sick. So I think that you really have to listen to your body. As a safety measure I stay away from modified food starch.

Good Luck!

Please note that this topic is almost five years old, so some of the information may be out of date. Kraft will always label gluten clearly, so you can just read the label.

Caramel color is gluten-free. Modified food starch, if from wheat, must be so labeled in the US. It is almost invariably corn--in almost ten years on the diet I have never found modified food starch that wasn't gluten-free.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
