Martha White Gluten Free Muffin Mixes

23 April 2015 - 12:08 PM

At my grocery store I picked up a gluten-free Blueberry muffin mix in with the pouch martha white mixes.  Those are something I had through my childhood so I picked one up and it was pretty good. Only made 5 muffins which is just enough when you don't need to be eating a giant batch.  Full of articifial crap but good for a nostalgic treat, haha. There was no GFCO seal or anything on it so I wrote asking about shared facilities/equipment/testing and this was their reply.  Their parent company is smuckers who will label any gluten containing ingredient on their products, by the way.
 
"Thank you for your inquiry regarding the presence of gluten in one of our Martha White® products. For over 115 years, providing our consumers with the highest quality products has been of paramount importance to The J.M. Smucker Company. Quality products begin with quality ingredients and we employ comprehensive procurement procedures to ensure our products contain only the finest ingredients from reputable suppliers.
 
The product for which you have requested information, Martha White® Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Mix, is verified "gluten-free" per the established U.S. Food and Drug Administration's criteria.
 
The J.M. Smucker Company follows the established U.S. Food and Drug Administration's criteria for making "gluten-free" claims, including:
 
Ingredient Screening - The ingredient cannot contain gluten sources such as wheat, rye, barley or their derivatives or hybrids. We also review for the presence of oats.
Testing - The product must be tested to verify that it contains less than 20 parts per million. We also review for the presence of oats.
Manufacturing Procedures - In addition, facilities that manufacture verified “gluten-free” products must have a comprehensive gluten management program. All equipment used in the manufacture of products containing any gluten or oat source must be thoroughly cleaned prior to producing a product that is “gluten-free”. These procedures must be validated and inspected after each clean-up.
 
 
If you should have further questions or need additional information, please visit us at www.marthawhite.com or contact us at 800-663-6317, Mondaythrough Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST."

 

 

According to their website they have a chocolate muffin mix as well, haven't seen that one.  

 

TL;DR: Their blueberry muffins are tasty, cheap, and according to mfg they test finished product and run on shared equipment with very thorough cleaning/QC protocols.  I feel okay with them, but super sensitives may not.  Would be a great thing for kids.


Multivitamin With No Or Low Calcium.

01 March 2015 - 07:48 PM

So my latest blood results from my Lupus doctor showed I have slightly high calcium(10.6 with a normal range of 8.6-10.4 mg/dL) and he wants me to stop getting extra calcium.  Given my Celiac disease, I want to keep supplementing with a well rounded multi-vitamin, preferably one that has iron given that I am a female.  

I have been taking the store brand of the One A Day Womens, which contains 500mg of Calcium Carbonate, 50% of daily value.  I have a lot of medical costs, so would highly prefer having it all in one pill as that will cost less than taking tons of vitamins separately.  Just looking online, the closest, most complete one I can find is this one, with only 100mg of Calcium Carbonate.  Any recommendations?  gluten-free, of course :)


What Are You Eating For The Super Bowl?

28 January 2015 - 03:42 PM

What is everyone planning on eating for super bowl watching snacks?  I am not a big football person, but I do watch the game and the commercials.  My husband suggested we break out the deep fryer and make fried chicken tenders and fried pickles since it has been a while, and I agreed that is a great idea.  Yum Yum!  Hopefully we can leave some ideas here to inspire our people new to gluten-free and Celiac life.

 

I marinate my chicken tenders in buttermilk, sriracha, and spices.  Then coat in gluten-free bisquik, and fry.  Really nice to have something like that since I definitely can't go through a drive through and get it like the old days.

 

 


Fiorucci Foods (Italian Deli Meats)

21 June 2014 - 10:03 PM

I recently picked up some Fiorucci pepperoni paninos at the store, they are little sticks of Mozzarella wrapped in pepperoni, pretty good.  The label looked okay, but I wrote them asking the gluten-free status of their products and got a reply  on June 17, 2014 that all their products are gluten-free.  They have salami, pepperoni, Prosciutto, pancetta, etc.  Apparently they are east coast based, but I bought my stuff at HEB in Texas.  Leaving this info here for others, since there was no current info online.

 

If you are reading this and a long time has passed since June 2014, you need to re-contact the company as ingredients can change with time.
