    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Need Help From Those In Canada

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I live in NY, but my husband is in Toronto on business until Friday morning. To be completely honest I have no idea what made him go into a supermarket (because he never goes at home), but nevertheless he did and called to ask me if I had any feedback on a few products that looked potentially gluten-free. Since I'm not there to read ingredients I was hoping you could help me both determine if it is gluten-free and if you've ever tried it and if it is good.

The products he mentioned were:

- Kingsmill bread products

- Kraft Rice Thins

- Quaker Rice Crisps.

I really appreciate any and all feedback.

I eat the Christie plain rice thins (made by Kraft) everyday and the ingredients are definitely gluten-free. Maybe in Eastern Canada they are simply labelled Kraft, not Christie? I know Quaker rice cakes are gluten-free. I'm pretty sure Kingsmill is a 100% gluten-free manufacturer.

I eat the Plain Quaker rice cakes with no problems. I've never heard of Kingsmill bread products or Kraft Rice Thins. Tell him to go to a BIG Zares if he can find one :) They have a grand gluten free section. That's where I went for food when I was in Ontario. Sobey's carries gluten-free food as well.

If he goes into any Shoppers Drug Mart, they have in their food section (which is not really that big) Sakata Rice Crackers that come in different flavours. I really enjoy those. Some Shoppers stores also actually carry Amy's Cheesecake in little single packets that do not require refrigeration, they say gluten-free right on them.

If he goes into any Great Canadian Superstore or Loblaws Superstore (not the regular Loblaws, but one of the big ones), they have a whole aisle of gluten-free stuff. Excellent cake mixes, brownie, muffin mixes by El Peta.

Don't waste your money on Kingsmill. They are hockey pucks when toasted and try as cardboard when they are not......

I eat alot of rice crackers and the Rice Thins are by far my favorite - particularily the whole grain ones (don't worry they are gluten free) I find these thinner and crisper than most types.
