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.

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
