Citric Acid

Recommended Posts

I have a list of foods to avoid and citric acid is one of them but in the Classico Tomato and Basil tomato sauce it says the last ingredient is citric acid and when I called them to ask for sure if it was gluten free they said yes. What gives??

As far as I know it's ok from the gluten standpoint. Most times it is derived from corn.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Citric Acid was on the list of "things to be careful with" that we got from a Nutrionist when we first got started on the diet. She said that it can be derived from wheat (I would have never thought). It wasn't a "no no", just something to check on.

Citric acid is one of those things they used to tell you to watch out for, but as it turns out it's always gluten-free. This is NOT something to worry about.
