"However you should know that we do not guarantee that our products are gluten-free because we sometimes purchase flavoring, color or spice ingredients from suppliers who do not list every possible source of gluten beyond what is required by law.
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!

Yes, I buy Kraft, and they are one of the manufacturers that I prefer to buy from.

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.

This is very helpful. I have had the hardest time trying to determine if their 2% deli deluxe American slices are gluten free. I found nothing that says they ate or are not.

I don't buy Kraft products for the same paragraph you posted. Well, I'd buy their guaranteed gluten-free stuff, not that I've ever seen it. Also there are multiple stories on here about Kraft representatives saying a product contains gluten even though the ingredient list says it doesn't.

I have never seen a cheese in the US with gluten except a specialty beer cheese. There is no reason to think there would be gluten in the cheese. Most food is not "guaranteed" gluten free. Most companies do not test for gluten so they will not say it is gluten free.

The cheese is gluten-free. And I'll join the chorus of people who buy Kraft. They were one of the first companies to say they would list all gluten and all you need do is read the ingredients. The reality is that very. very few companies have nay sort of ironclad guarantee about gluten. It's just not possible unless you control the whole chain for every single ingredient you use.

Kraft is okay by me, too. Never had a problem and I appreciate their labeling practices.

I prefer Kraft over some other brands because they are honest in labeling. Even though the statement is not comforting, it is the truth. To the best of the companies knowledge, all gluten will be listed in the ingredients.

I buy kraft products all the time. There are many that I can no longer eat because of other food intolerances - which makes me believe that some of the reports of people reacting to Kraft products are caused by an unknown intolerance rather than gluten. I know in my early days I was convinced a few things had gluten in them when it was actually a different ingredient causing the reaction.

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.

I've been using Kraft projects since I returned to the States in June and haven't noticed any problems that I can pinpoint -- and I've been slowly adding in one new food at a time so I can monitor possible reactions.
