Do You Buy Kraft?
Posted 24 September 2012 - 07:26 PM
We do not have a list of gluten-free products and, unless labeled as such, do not guarantee that our products are gluten-free. Formulations and ingredients change too frequently to ensure that such lists are always up-to-date and accurate."
Would you feel comfortable eating anything from Kraft after reading this? I am really thinking of not buying any of their products anymore. But it isn't going to be easy! They make everything from my mustard to my baking chocolates!

They are totally honest about their products. In most cases, they do not test for possible contamination by an outside supplier. But they will not hide any known source of gluten--it will be clearly disclosed on the label.
As mainstream food companies go, Kraft is as good as it gets. Very few test, and those who do not test cannot "guarantee" anything.
Other suppliers who can be trusted to disclose any gluten source are listed here.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; Finally Diagnosed with Celiac 11/01/10. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

Life is good!

As with any processed food - read the label each time - ingredients change - but Kraft's gluten policy is one of the best and I continue to feel safe purchasing their items for the gluten-free members of my family.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
