In Topic: Mashed Potatoes In A Box

Instant as in potato flakes? Some brands add milk. Ask the person who made them what kind it was? When buying instant potatoes yourself, compare brands and take the one with the fewest ingredients. Some contain just potatoes and a few preservatives while others add flavoring or ingredients to make them "light and fluffy."

However, CC is a likely possibility whenever you eat something made by someone else, whether the pot is used for other things, like Jestgar suggested, or the cook had gluten-y foods going at the same time and dropped some flour or dipped the wrong spoon by accident.

I wasn't able to contact Udi's until today, but I agree about their unmatched customer service -- I received an email from customer service within an hour.

Dear Bridget,

Thank you so much for your interest and support in Udiís Gluten Free Foods.

We use a Julian Calendar to reflect our production date. It will be a five to six digit number on the bread clip for bagged goods and on the packaging for the rest. The first two digits are the year (11 for 2011 or 12 for 2012) and the next three digits reflect the dayís number in the year (ex 015 will be January 15th since it is the 15th day of the year). The last digit is simply for production and doesnít mean anything regarding the date.

Our products, unlike our competitors, can be left at room temperature so it can be eaten soft without being toasted. A lot of our vendors now sell our bread and baked goods in the bakery rather than in the frozen section. The bakery department should re-date the product to reflect the 7 day use-by-date (just like gluten-filled breads).

Here is the recommended shelf life for our products:

∑ At room temperature: 5-7 days

∑ In refrigerator: 21 days (the refrigerator will only prolong the life of the product but since itís a baked good, it may dry out)

∑ In freezer: 6 months

Please note our breads do not spoil, as with any other bread products, it will mold. So as long as it's not moldy, you can refreeze or refrigerate the product. Thanks again for taking the time to write to us and please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Have an Udiful day.


The clip on the package I threw away didn't have the date on it so I'll assume it was a manufacturing error. No free bread, but... still helpful.

Thank you for all your replies!

This loaf is going in the garbage. It's always past its peak within a week anyway; if there's any left after that I usually nuke it for a bit to soften it up and then use it for french toast or something that covers the staleness.

Rosetapper: Good suggestion. I'm going to call the company this morning. I love their products and this is the first time I've had any problems.

This is the first I've heard of any black coffee containing gluten, but some instant flavored coffees do contain wheat, for example some flavors in the Maxwell House International tins. Whenever I buy anything flavored, I just make sure to read the label like I do with any other food.

Yes, but processed to the point that there is no detectable gluten, and tested.


Anything that processed shouldn't be marketed as 'edible.' With that said, I had a problem with the fries last year. I didn't have the full-on glutening symptoms - just a nasty stomach ache and I couldn't even think about food for a day or two after - but it was enough that I haven't ordered fries at any restaurant since.
