Pillsbury Goes Gluten-free

Celiac.com 09/04/2013 - Just in, this little gem from thedailymeal.com: News that one in three Americans are avoiding or reducing gluten in their diets seems to have gotten through to major American dough manufacturer Pillsbury, which says it will be releasing a line of refrigerated gluten-free items, including pie and pastry dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, and thin crust pizza.

Wiki Media CommonsPillsbury will make these allergen-free items available at mass scale in local and chain grocers this month. Among other groups, these products are likely aimed at regaining many of the folks who love Pillsbury's croissants and biscuits, but who are now gluten-free.

Additionally, the company is also partnering with chef Cat Cora, and Gluten-free advocate Danna Korn to develop gluten-free recipes that highlight Pillsbury's products.

When asked by reporters for The Daily Meal if she had any plans to release a gluten-free cookbook, Cora said, “Maybe I will! She says her media team is always on the lookout for vegan and gluten-free recipe opportunities and that she hasn't seen many gluten-free cookbooks out there.

Check in with celiac.com for more news on Pilsbury's gluten-free efforts, and on Cat Cora's potential gluten-free cookbook.

I just purchased all my local store had and let me tell you that the chocolate chip cookies are AWESOME! There is NO difference between GF and "normal" cookies. They got it right with the cookie dough. I will say I am not as happy with the pie crust. It is fair but I like my recipe made with GF Bisquick better but the cookie dough is to die for!

Awesome! I have been clamoring for decent crescent rolls! I'm hoping to turn these into that! Holiday meals have been terrible since my diagnosis. Hurray!

My girlfriend can get these in Ohio, but I have yet to find them here in Texas.

This news is two-edged. On the one hand, those who are grain sensitive still may have issues with joint/muscle inflammation and insulin sensitivity. On the other hand, it's really nice to occasionally be able to indulge and to take something to a gathering that everyone can enjoy. Thanks to Pillsbury for this recognition that there is a growing number of folks who cannot tolerate gluten. Certainly hope that GIANT FOODS corporation/Carlisle, PA have been notified. I'm a faithful customer and am able to buy more and more of their products. They, too, are a great company!

This depends on if it's a dedicated gluten-free facility. If not, then I'm not buying.

I hope they do their flaky biscuits too. I have so missed using them on my chicken pot pies.

I really miss having gluten free crescent rolls. There are so many recipes to use them. Wish Pillsbury would make a refrigerated roll of crescent rolls. Do you know of any?

My wife and I are both gluten free. Our local Kroger has had this product for about a month now and we love them. They are all good but the pizza dough, which stuck to the pan. we have bought several tubs of the pastry dough as well as the chocolate chip cookies. It's fast, easy, and gluten free.

Are the Pillsbury facilities dedicated to only gluten free manufacture or are they shared with gluten products? I would need to know that before I could trust these products.

I just hope that none of these items contain GMO corn or soy, or Aspartame, HFCS or MSG?? Also better if they do not contain Lactose. GF products should be hypoallergenic as many on GF diets have multiple allergies.

I love these doughs because they're very convenient. My neighbor found surprisingly at a 99 cent store and bought them for me. Ever since I've been experimenting with them with different recipes. Since then I have found them at Albertsons too. So anyone from the Dallas area that's where you can find these products.

I read a month or more ago they were releasing a pizza crust, but have yet to see it at any of my grocers. "pie and pastry dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, and thin crust pizza" - does this include crescent rolls? It doesn't look to be crescent rolls or biscuits, etc. However, I hope so, because like everyone else, that is the one thing I miss from Pillsbury. I have recipes that I routinely make (or made) that use them and I can't make them anymore. Fingers crossed for crescent rolls!

I've tried the Pillsbury's GF pie crust dough and the GF thin crust pizza dough. I have to give the pie crust dough a resounding 5-star rating as it is a fantastic product. I baked a peach pie with it and both my husband and I couldn't believe how similar "regular" pie crust in character the product it is. However, the thin crust pizza dough leaves much to be desired. I cannot even rate it a 1-star as it is very tough, tasteless and very oily in texture. I hope Pillsbury keeps working on improving this product as there are many other GF pizza dough products on the market that are quite good.

Happy! Happy! Happy! I will no longer have to make my own pie crust (not an easy task)!

I've tried the Pillsbury GF pizza dough and it was horrible and gummy. I followed the directions exactly. I can make pizza crust GF that tastes way better than that. I'm hoping they come out with crescent dough though and its decent. I'm dying for a buttery crescent roll!

I just used the gluten free pastry dough for an apple pie crust. It's wonderful, and doesn't have any of that "off" taste that can come with gluten-free substitutes.

I discovered these products at my local Von's grocery store and had to try them. The chocolate chip cookie dough is delicious, especially warm. The pie crust is really good, better than any I've made from scratch. And the pizza dough was way too chewy, so I won't buy that one again. All in all, they are a good option.

Why can't I find the ingredients anywhere. Are these egg and dairy free as well?

We have gone gluten free, our whole house, as of a month ago. It was pretty seamless since I had been gluten-free for 5 months last year. I have found many good recipes, and my picky husband and one of my boys who is also a picky eater, even prefer many gluten-free recipes to the regular ones. My husband did see my point about the size of the gluten protein means nothing. Its a gluten protein period, that's what you are avoiding. It doesn't matter if its hiding in the scratch of your baking sheet and you can't see it. You can't see the wind, but it's still there. I hear you on the anemia. I've been anemic for several years, I just thought it as because I was getting a little older. Has your anemia gone away or do you still have problems with it?

Ennis, it is made out of metal, coated with plastic I think. You have such a hard time, my heart really hurts for you. But you are such a support to those on this board, and a great teacher for those of us who are new.

Thanks everyone! I think its hard for people to fully accept because they cant see the damage it does every time you get glutened. It's invisible. Im glad to know I wasnt being paranoid. I sure was when I was first diagnosed. I laugh at myself now, but its a pretty steep learning curve.

FYI......anxiety is a common symptom with celiac disease and NCGI. It seems to resolve on a gluten-free diet. ?

Yes, I will definitely update you and would love to hear what your experience is. I'm glad I found this forum because you're right--it's nice to not feel so alone. I'm also prone to anxiety--so waiting and worrying is not fun! Cyclinglady, thanks for sharing your experience as well. I do plan to maintain a gluten-free diet for a while at least if the biopsy is negative just to see how I feel.
