New Kinnikinnick Products

I ordered some stuff from Kinnikinnick and they sent me a free trial pack of dinner rolls. OMG. They are great. I also saw that they have changed their bread. I hated the old kind. Has anyone tried the "new soft" bread they are advertising?

I like lots of their things, however the gluten-free oreos and donuts make me very ill. Be warned. Stay away. No fun.

You're not saying that they are not gluten free, just that you have a reaction to an undisclosed ingredient? YES? :)

I thing their donuts are drop dead awesome. I eat them frozen. :rolleyes:

I like thier "Oreos" and the vanilla ones. My oldest son who isn't gluten-free, thinks thier "Oreos" are better than real Oreos. :ph34r:

My daughter loves the donuts . . . I can't buy them too often because she has no self-control once they are in the house.

I wonder where she gets that from?

:rolleyes:

:ph34r:

:lol:

I have not seen their new bread . . . but they had to do something to keep up with Udi's and Rudi's.

Stay away from their donuts and oreos? No thanks. They're gluten free and delicious. In fact, I'm going to get some right now :)

Kinnikinnick is truly a gluten-free facility - no CC risk there at all. LOVE their stuff....wish they could simplify their online ordering. I used to order stuff regularly but they changed their shipping - you submit your order and someone has to get back to you about shipping. Maybe it's just me, but I don't want to spend all that time going through their products, composing a list, and then possibly finding shipping is too much - I like sites to have everything up front if I'm shopping, when I'm shopping.

Safeway does carry some of their stuff, as well as Udi's and such. I have been to their facility/bakery in Edmonton - nice - more than just their own products (non bakery items) !!

You do know, don't you, that Kinnikinnick is pretty much as gluten free and CC free as any place like this can possibly be? At one time -- and this still might be true -- workers weren't even allowed to bring anything for lunch that wasn't gluten-free.

It sounds like something else in those products may have affected you. Some people have reactions to ingredients like pea protein and tapioca. This would not be a gluten issue:)

I eat the Oreos almost every day and have never had a problem. The Panko bread crumbs are great. I was just wondering about the new bread because I really did not like their bread when I tried it, but if this is better I'll give it a try.

I had their English muffins way back when and I used them like bread. They are so thick you can get three or four slices out of them I thought they were delicious. And yes, I reacted to them, but I knew it was the corn starch that caused my problem. I couldn't eat any breads at all for a while because of the corn.

But now I can tolerate corn starch. :D I've been buying Udi's and eating it daily for a while now. Maybe next time I'll get those English Muffins instead. Thanks for reminding me. :)

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
