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.

    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      First of all, your doctor does not seem to be celiac savvy.  It is so easy for a GI doctor to miss patches of intestinal damage on an endoscopy because the small intestinal wall, if spread out is the size of a tennis court!   How many samples were taken and submitted to a pathologist?  A visual look from the GI often results in nothing!  For example, my endoscopy visual was recorded as normal.  But my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal villi damage (Marsh Stage IIIB).  GI's are supposed to take four to six tissue samples.  I would suggest getting copies of all your lab/procedure reports.  Don't trust me.  Here's the research: http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/diagnosis Next, three months of eating gluten free is not very long.  The reality is that there is a steep learning curve to going gluten free.  You can get "glutened" by kissing someone who just consumed gluten.  You can get it from a shared toaster, coated frying pan, wooden spoon, etc.  Gluten can be hidden in prescription medications, etc.  Do you EVER eat out?   I can tell you that it took me a year to feel pretty good and another to feel really normal!  My learning curve was not so steep since my hubby had been gluten-free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis, so I knew the drill.   You could have something else besides celiac disease.  Like SIBO, Crohn's, etc.  You might consider going back to your GI for another celiac antibodies test to see if you are diet compliant  before looking into other illnesses.   You could have developed intolerances (lactose is a huge one).  These can be identified by keeping a food diary.  They develop because your gut has been damaged (or is continuing to be damaged by gluten).  You might consider digestive enzymes (use certified gluten-free ones) and stick to whole well-cooked foods (including fruit) for a month or so.  I can tell you that I could not eat eggs for years.  Now I eat them daily.  Same for hard-to-digest things like nuts and crunchy fresh veggies!   Check out our Newbie 101 section pinned under the "Coping" section of this forum.  Review it to be sure you really are gluten free.  Then give yourself some time to heal.   I hope you feel better soon!
