Goodbye Gluten And Rudi's Wraps
0

10 posts in this topic

Rudi's Wraps - I tried them at a gluten free fair earlier this year but they have not hit any of my local grocery stores. We have 2 organic markets, Weis, Wegmans, Giant, Giant Eagle, Safeway and Wegmans in my town many of which carry other Rudi's products. Anyone know where to find them?

Goodbye Gluten - read so many great reviews but haven't seen it in any of the above stores. Has anyone tried it and is it as good as I've read. If so, what grocery store did you find it at?

I've heard Goodbye Gluten is excellent - someone tasted it in their celiac support group and found it at their Wegman's - I think.

I tried emailing them to find out when I could expect to see it on shelves here in Southern California and got an email back saying they don't respond to emails without a phone number listed - I don't give out my phone number so I guess I'll never know ;)

PS...still haven't seen Rudi's wraps, but know others have

I've gotten Rudi's wraps at our local Whole Foods.

The manager at my local Krogers told me to let him know if there were (gluten free) products that I would like to see in their store. They already carry the Rudi's bread so I think I'll ask him to get the wraps. You might put in a request with a manager at one of the stores that already carries Rudi's.

I'm told that all Giant Eagle markets carries the goodbye gluten. And yes, it is very good. thicker slices than what you see for gluten-free bread. It comes in white or multigrain....It is placed in the Nature Basket sections on a small free-standing rack....

I haven't seen it anywhere else......

For Rudi's wraps try the speciality stores.. We like the Sandwich Petals & the Maria & Ricardo's gluten free wraps. We order online for these ones....

What state are you in? I'm in western Pa....sounds like you maybe close....

I'll have to check our Giant Eagle again. Maybe they were out the day I was there. My daughter will be going gluten free after her endoscopy on the 19th and I want to have some bread she will like on hand. I know we should stay away from the gluten-free processed food but I think some items will help her in transition.

Mamaw - I'm in Frederick, MD. :)

Frederick, Md & there is a giant eagle there? I know its not next door to you but do you ever shop Roots Market or the MOMS Market?

I see you also mentioned Safeway.. They have excellent panko gluten-free breaded shrimp at Safeway. If your store doesn't carry it ask them to order it..It is there own brand called

"Waterfront Bistro" I picked up a case while I was in Maryland for vacation. This is the second year I have done that... But the sad note is they maybe discontinuing this product in Jan2013... I had to order it in to a Safeway store I would be near....

Yes, 2 Giant Eagles in Frederick and a MOMs. I have never heard of Roots. We are certainly not lacking in grocery stores yet I still can't find some items. I will look for the shrimp - sounds yummy.

I just tried Goodbye Gluten bread today--it's *amazing*. We'd used Udi's until now, but this is better (in my opinion). It's very moist and squishy. I could even roll the bread into little balls like glutenous bread. My dad tried the multigrain tonight (with homemade chili) and I think he ate six pieces. I ate four pieces of the multigrain and two of the white. I highly recommend it. We got it at County Market. It's $5.49 a loaf here, which is the same as the Udi's, and it's the same size loaf, too. I think we'll probably be switching brands now.

Can't tell you how much I envy those of you with a choice of grocery stores. Here in the boonies (Jackson,MS) we only have Kroger and one local chain. If they ain't got it, you don't get it. We will have a Whole Foods sometime in 2014, and I can't wait!!!!!

Yes, I feel really, really lucky to have so many great stores all within about an 8 mile radius. I asked at Giant Eagle today and they told me it's carried in their Pennsylvania and Columbus stores as a trial. I was lucky to talk with someone very knowledgable about gluten free. She indicated the trial was very positive so she expected the product to be expanded to all stores soon. YEA. I think I'll put a follow-up request in as well.

I'll look out for the sandwich petals and wraps mentioned above. I bought Food for Life brown rice wraps some time back and they are AWFUL! Brittle/chewy - very weird texture.

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.    
    • I can not help you with the the 504 plan, but I do know that I would do it.  My daughter is 15 and so far has tested negative for celiac disease, but in the event she does test positive, she will need a 504 plan to help keep her safe.  I am sure other parents will chime in.  This topic has come up repeatedly.  Until then, try a search with the forum.  Lots of people have posted with their comments and experiences.   As far as lunch is concerned, my kid has not purchased a school lunch since the 1st grade.  She says they are gross.  (Poor me!).  But, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free lunch.  Sure, they are required by law, but let's face it, who is working in the kitchens, ordering, etc?  I am on a University campus and have called out food service for not following gluten-free safe practices!    I would pack a lunch, at least until her health has stabilized.  The 504 plan is great for extra trips to the bathroom and hand washing.  It provides some protection in the classroom.   Keep advocating for her Mom!  You are doing a great job!
