Ok am very confused on the whole salad dressig thing. Why cant I eat bottled salad dressing if it does not say wheat on the label? :huh:

Have read that in several different places.

Thank you

Laura

Some salad dressings have gluten, but there are lots you can have. Most Kraft dressings are gluten-free--just read the ingredients. If there is gluten, Kraft will clearly disclose it. Golden Italian and French are the two I use regularly. Wish-Bone is a Unilever brand--they, too, will clearly list gluten in the ingredients.

In the US, Wishbone & Ken's say gluten-free on them Most other salad dressings are gluten-free. Look for malt vinegar or soy sauce (wheat, soy, etc) on the ingredients.

Ok so let me get this straight...not only do I have to look at the ingredients in the items that I choose but also have to look at the ingredients in the ingredients of the items I choose? :o

Sorry still new to this whole gluten free thing...thought I kinda understood but now not too sure :D

soy sauce is not a one ingredient. Its usually written soy sauce (wheat, soy...) But its all on the ingredient list. . Its quite common to list ingredients, gluten or otherwise that way.

It may appear as a main ingredient, or may appear in parentheses as a subingredient. But it will be there, so if you read whole list, including sublists, and don't see it, it is not there. It you see the name of a gluten source anywhere, avoid the product.

Yep, I've had to throw out sauces and dressings that list soy sauce as an ingredient (without breaking it down further). However, in the allergen information they all say "contains wheat."

Took me a while to figure out where that wheat was hiding!

Soy sauce that has wheat in it. It should say : water, olive oil, soy sauce ( wheat, soy, ...) salt. There are soy sauces without wheat. If they have wheat, they must list it in the US & Canada.

Thanks, I have discovered that in labeling so soy itself and soy milk is ok?

Soy doesn't contain gluten. Read the ingredients of products to see if any gluten is added.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
