Oh My Gosh, So Confused!

Recommended Posts

I saw a Crystal Noodles ad in my Simply Gluten Free magazine. I looked up the company and they say they are gluten free. I then started looking for reviews, well i came across this.

http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=695040&storeId=10052&langId=-1

 

Warnings

Contains milk, wheat, egg and soy. Manufactured in a facility that also processes milk, egg, peanuts, shellfish and fish products. Do not use microwave oven. Hot handle with care. Do not purchase if open or torn.

 

:(

 

and here is another that says it has wheat. http://www.shoprite.com/pd/Long-Kows/Soup-Crystal-Noodle-Vegetables-and-Eggs/1-83-oz/186190000010/

 

But on their website each says Gluten free. http://www.crystalnoodle.com/products/6mushrooms.html

That is odd if it says it contains wheat. I'm wondering if the gluten-free is a new thing and the ingredient list you got was old? Or did you see a package that said gluten-free and " contains wheat"? You might want to email the company for clarification if you want to eat them. I haven't seen that brand here. My son likes the Dr MacDougals but I'm not a big eater of noodle cups.

The Wegmans one says MSG in the ingredients, too. The wheat was in the soy sauce. The website for the company says no MSG on the one I looked at. Maybe Wegmans has old info?

The middle link (ShopRite) is to a different product. If you look carefully, the package is different in the Wegmans view than on the manufacturer's page. My guess is that they have recently changed the formula, and the information at Wegmans is out of date

 

When there is conflicting information, I believe the package label first, and the maker's web site second. Everything else is second-hand and may be wrong.

If the soy sauce has wheat can you just not use it?  I think most of the time the seasoning packets are separate from the noodles?  But you'd need to bring your own seasoning or sauce instead.  Maybe some salad dressing or herbs in plastic baggie would work?
