Gluten Free Baked Goods In Harris Teeter? Would You Buy Them?
0

10 posts in this topic

I ran into Harris Teeter last night looking for some scones for my dd and friend (friend spent the night so they could get up at 4:00 a.m. and watch the royal wedding B) ) -- So I'm browsing through the bakery section and there on one of the racks were several gluten free options! But -- not brand-name stuff. These had the HT label and were wrapped like they'd been made there. Like the muffins were in those little disposable muffin tin things, the coffee cake on a little styrofoam tray with plastic wrap, etc.

My immediate thought was that here was yet another example of stores catering to those who we ("we" meaning those of us here on this board, because there's been a thread about this just recently) call "gluten lite" people. Because why in the world would I EVER eat something marked gluten free when it's just wrapped like that, and sitting right next to gluteny stuff? :ph34r:

I was in too much of a hurry to ask anyone, but next time I'm over there I'm going to speak to the manager of the bakery and see what he/she has to say. The only way I'd ever try something like that would be if they reassured me that HT has a gluten free baking facility somewhere off-site. Even then I'd be nervous. sheesh...

Anyone ever try these? Anyone ever spoken to HT about it? When I do I'll let you all know. But I'm still not sure I'd eat them.

Some of our grocery stores sell gluten-free baked goods. They are from 2 local gluten-free bakeries and labelled as such.

I will be curious to hear what you find out from the manager.

I'm curious to hear what you find out. I shop at HT all the time. I have never seen any gluten-free baked goods but I also don't spend much time looking in the bread and bakery section. If they came from a gluten-free facility off site I would consider it depending on the details. HT does have an excellent return policy for their brand name items. If you try something that is HT brand and are not 100% satisfied with it for any reason they will not only refund your money but they will also give you a comparable name brand item for free. I'm not sure if there is a comparable name brand gluten-free item in this case but my HT stores have always been very accomodating on things like that...I bet CS would give you whatever suitable sub you could think of or take suggestions for brand names they could start stocking if they don't have them. I would LOVE to see Rudi's gluten-free bread in HT sometime.

im in with GFinDC

ill try em if you do...and if i can find em. i havent quite looked in the baked good section of my local harris teeter's but i am for sure going to be on the look out. most of the time if i cant get to my whole foods to get some really awesome gluten free products ill stop at teeter, they do usually have the udi's gluten free white bread or "whole grain" bread(makes it look like wheat bread i guess)

this is however interesting to me. it was a long time coming when they finally started putting these kinds of products in their stores. i know myself and every other non gluten eater in my town was happy. some times when im in my rush i cant find the bread cause they're sold you lol which is fine for me, lets me see how much of the gluten free bread people in the area buy. ill still stick by my whole foods gluten free bakery! gotta love it! :lol: thanks for the teeter heads up Monklady123

This was the Harris Teeter at the Harrison Street shopping center, Lee Highway and Harrison in Arlington. Kind of far from Capital Hill, but if you ever find yourself over here....

I'm going to call their customer service on Monday and see what they say. I'll be interested to hear if there's some sort of gluten free baking facility around here, because as far as I know there isn't a dedicated gluten free bakery near me. (I'm not willing to drive to Outer Mongolia, lol.) I'm going to Pittsburgh next week and there is one there. Can't wait! (Gluuteny in Squirrel Hill). But, Harris Teeter would be more convenient than Pittsburgh. ;)

Hmm, guess I don't understand the comment? (befuddled look here) :ph34r:

@ Monklady, I have seen the gluten-free baked goods at the Pennsylvania Ave. HT, but haven't tried them.

So I still can't say I would eat them. I am not really eating much of baked anything these days though.

    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
