Anyone Know Anything About Mission Foods?
0

6 posts in this topic

I searched the forums and didn't really find any information about them. I've heard they are Gluten free but I really don't know what to think. I know they used to have Gluten free labeling and claim they are going through the FDA process and that is all. You can read about them here: http://missionfoods.com/FAQs.aspx

I was wondering how many of you have bought their products? Have you had a good experience or bad experience with them?

Thanks for the replies.

I use their white corn tortillas without an issue. :)

I used up the last of them a few days ago, but if i remember right, the gluten free label was on the back of the tortillas :)

Mission are the only brand of tortillas I will buy. I use both yellow and white corn tortillas depending on my mood. I tend to be rather sensitive and have never had a problem.

Many of us use them with no issue. There are many references to them on this forum using the google search.

They say they run only corn on corn machines. That is like many certified gluten-free products and many other foods.

They say nothing about " going through the FDA process" to be gluten-free. There is no FDA process and they acknowledge that. Many companies seem to have decided not to label gluten-free until there is an actual ruling on the definition of gluten-free is and what procedures must be taken to claim gluten-free status on a product.

"Why is gluten free no longer on your package?

The FDA has been working on issuing a final ruling on the issue of “gluten free product”. We decided as a company to remove gluten free from our packaging until the final ruling is passed, and then we will make adjustment in our packaging, if any. The last update we have from the FDA is that they have a proposal on this issue. If you would like to get further information on this ruling, you can visit the FDA website."

I've used both the yellow and white corn tortillas for the past nine years and have never had a problem.

Okay great. Thanks everyone for the information.

I haven't noticed any differences when eating their foods. Thankfully, they are really good too!

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • 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 of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. 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! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
