List Of Safeway Items That Are gluten-free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

From Safeway after I called them today:

We received your request for information on

Safeway private label products for those troubled with

gluten-induced enteropathy or celiac-sprue. While

we are somewhat familiar with the malabsorption

syndrome, we do not presume to prescribe any of

our products for any specific diet(s). On the other

hand, we are happy to provide what information we

have which might be useful to you.

For your information, we have over 5,000

different products in our Safeway private label product

line and we do not have a listing of ingredients

available for the general public on each of these

items so we are not able to comply with all

requests. We do suggest that you read carefully all

ingredient labeling information on products that

you purchase.

We can tell you that our frozen vegetables and

fruits should be okay since they do not contain any

other ingredients but the vegetables or fruits

themselves. The exception to this would be our

frozen vegetables in sauce.

Another group of items that would be acceptable

are non-breaded seafood items, poultry that has

not been breaded or stuffed, and our Lucerne/SELECT

eggs. In other words, all fresh meats, seafood's

and eggs.

Acceptable dairy items would be all fluid milks,

except chocolate milk when starch is added and

the source is not listed, cottage cheese and

natural cheeses. Most bakery items we believe would not

be acceptable for use in this diet.

We have taken the initiative to solicit all of

our suppliers for lists of their products that are

gluten free. This list is attached for your easy


As near as we can determine, the information

we've provided is correct; however, we cannot

guarantee that changes will not occur from time to time

in our ingredient listings, or vendor changes

that would affect processing methods or raw

ingredients therefore we do recommend that you verify

ingredients with us from time to time. We do

appreciate your interest in our Safeway Brand products

and hope that we have been of some help to you.

That's nice of them. Don't have a safeway around here, but I emailed Western Family, and got a similar response in the mail. Several pages listing everything that's gluten-free that the company makes. Very helpful!


Born and raised in Portland, OR; Currently living in Provo, UT

Gluten-free since June 2006

Also living with Hypoglycemia since 1991

Dairy-free for good since summer 2008

Started IBS diet and probiotics at GI's recommendation - Fall 2008

Also avoiding: potatoes, beans, crucifers, popcorn, most red meat, coconut milk :(

Started eating a Paleo diet Spring 2011. Love it!

The grass is always greener where you water it.

Ive been suffering symptoms again/ still . I was diagnosed in July 2018 and have only had 2 weeks once, another 1 week. without symptoms. So I started researching the Items not marked gluten-free. This is the response from Safeway,

 Morning Jane Murphy:

Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Lucerne Vanilla Coffee Creamer and if there is any gluten in this product.

Per our manufacturing plant, this product does not contain any gluten derived ingredients, however the facility that it is processed in has not been certified as a gluten free facility so there is a possibility of cross contamination. 

Thank you for shopping with us.

Hi Jane.  This posting is more than a decade old, so I caution anyone reading it  to be careful because ingredients change in products, especially in the last decade.    Since gluten-free labeling requirements have been issued by the FDA a few years ago, manufactures now realize that stating or applying a gluten free label means the product must be tested to be under 20 ppm.  Most companies have opted not to do this, but they do label all ingredients and identify the 8 common allergens (e.g. wheat (not barley and rye which also have gluten that affects celiacs and NCGS).  So, the creamer may be gluten free.  Since this product is private labeled, the grocery chain does not have complete control so they play it safe.  You might be reacting to some preservative in the creamer.  

If you are not improving, consider a stricter gluten free diet of non-processed (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, nuts, etc.)  gluten-free foods and DO NOT eat out until you see improvement.  Then try certified gluten free and venture to gluten free labeled products.  Finally, try products not labeled gluten free but do not contain gluten ingredients.  

Get re-tested.    See if gluten is getting into your diet.


I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you cycling lady,

I eliminated Lucerne vanilla creamer, Ghirardelli peppermint bar and changed my chapstick to vaseline only. I am feeling much better gastro wise. Not sure which was the culprit or all of them. I sure miss my peppermint bar....
