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

This Is So Infuriating!

I got some cookies at the Health Food store...Mi-Del brand, ginger snaps, with HUGE letters on the front blaring out GLUTEN FREE!! WHEAT FREE! Then way at the bottom in the allergy warning area it said "Made in a plant that also processes wheat products."

So what does that mean? Do any of you eat these when they have that warning? It didn't have the "shared equpment" statement, just about being made in the same plant.

Alot of specialty brands have gluten free foods processed in the same facilities as wheat but have machines cleaned in between. Not many brands you will find are dedicated to 100% gluten free facilities.

I am sensitive and I eat products that are gluten free but processed in facilities that also process wheat and have not had a problem with many, if any, of them.

I cant seem to eat any of the brands that are processed in a facility w/ wheat. It pretty much sucks...I've tried quite a few brands. I like Enjoy Life products and they havent bothered me. I just dont buy stuff that has that warning anymore. Maybe when I'm 100% I'll be less sensitive. I dunnno but thats what I'm hoping.

I tend to get sick whenever I try a product with the "made in the same facility" warning. This has happened with a variety of items, not just one company. I stay away from them.

I also don't seem to tolerate many products that are produced near wheat/gluten or on the same lines as gluten. For example, I react to gluten free Humpty Dumpty chips that are produced on the same line as gluten chips. There have been two products that blatantly listed gluten free on the label that I have reacted to.

I am also sensitive to cross-contamination. It does suck. Has anyone here ever had a problem with Glutino (sp?) products. I've been meaning to look them up online, but haven't had a chance. I am not sure if they are processed in a gluten-free facility or not, but they seem to make a lot of gluten-free products.

I have never had a problem with either Glutino or Glutano products. I eat the Glutino breakfast bars quite often.

I do not usually have a problem with "manufactured in the same plant" items, but I'm choosy about which ones I'll do. Dried fruit, no. Salsa, yes. (It has to do with how likely I think it is that 1) cleaning can be thoroughly done (easier for wet than dry), and 2) how much is likely to be picked up by the foods (more for stickier things).) But it is a risk.
