Anyone Know Anything About Mission Foods?

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!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
