Target-Archer Farms Nuts

3 posts in this topic


Has anyone with celiac reacted to any of the archer farm nuts? I seem to react to the raw almonds inspite of the fact it says the allergens are other nuts and nothing about being on the same line as wheat. I ate some the other day and I had severe brain fog for hours. Sometimes I get cramps or other symptoms. Where can I get safe nuts that are gluten free and not terribly expensive? Thanks much.

Try the nuts online store.

You also may be reacting to "other" nuts that come in contact with the almonds. It is hard to sort out the reactions, sometimes. I was really bummed last year, when the local farmer's market type store, which sold bulk almonds by the pound prepacked in large, economic bags, changed their packaging to the dreaded "packed in a facility with..." and sure enough, I started reacting. I found another supermarket chain here that sells packages with just other nuts being on the "packed on shared lines with...." that I am okay with. One of the most exasperating things about the local Whole Foods down in the city is that all of their nuts in any sort of package have the dreadful "shared line with warning...." I really do not understand why they can't at least give us plain, un-crosscontaminated almonds which haven't been run thru a wheat line, as so many people use them in place of wheat if they are not good with the high glycemic index gluten free flours, or if they are eating SCD or paleo or whatever. I live in an area where there are a LOT of almond orchards just a few miles away, and find this need to run the nuts thru wheat detritus on their way into the plastic bag, when the wheat is grown no where near here, so it must be just seasonings, ridiculous.

I completely agree and am baffled by this as well. I had a bag of walnuts from pre gluten-free shopping, and went to open it yesterday to use, it listed wheat in the ingredients. what? that is just crazy.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
