Are There Any Companies That Are Completely Gluten Free ?

Recommended Posts

I am tired of playing Russian Roulette with gluten ... I got nailed really bad last Saturday from Back to Nature Rice crackers ... At one point the company rep told me that they were gluten free ....

Soooo, does anyone know of a company is gluten free or companies with dedicated lines that NEVER have gluten on them ?

Thanks ... Marcia

Part of the problem is the raw materials and their transport ... for instace even if the line is using 100GF stuff they can still be contaminated in transport...

unfortunately the better quality smaller outfits also suffer from this aspect perhaps worse than huge oners, specially local shops who suply thier own because the transporter for bulk flour,rice etc. is often reused , unfrotunately I found the best way is usually finding a uncontaminated source and then making my own stuff like rice crackers...

Jayhawkmom,

Thanks for replying .... I checked out enjoylifefoods and it is exactly what I am looking for. I didn't see any crackers though ??? And unfortunately, from what I saw, I would have to travel 45 minutes to find a place that carries them, but I'm going to check with my local health food store anyway ... Are the bagels any good ? Do they have yeast ? I forgot to check ... Do you like their chocolate chips ?

gfp ... I'm not sure what you mean by transport ? Are you saying they transport wheat (gluten) and rice in the same containers from time to time ? That's not good ...

Can you please tell me the name of an uncontaminated source and a recipe for rice crackers ?

Thanks ... marcia

The Enjoy Life chocolate chips are the only chocolate I've been able to eat since they are gluten, casein, and soy free...they are AWESOME!!! Can't help you with the cracker problem as I've yet to find one that's really satisfying. And I haven't tried the Enjoy Life bagels but would be interested to hear if others have.

Shirley,

Thanks. I checked out the Kinninickickickckck... :blink: but they have a lot of other allergens in their products and I am still on the fence about soy, dairy, etc. I will keep them in mind though ... I've seen others here who love their foods ....

Jukie,

Thanks for replying .... I have got to get some of those chips .. I live in FL so my best bet is to find a store that carries them instead of ordering them online ... ROAD TRIP !!!

Does anyone know if Bob's or Pamela's uses designated lines ? ... I know they both produce glutenny foods as well as gluten free foods ... I really want to stop eating any and all gluten ... Thanks

Glutino's bakery in Laval, QC (suburb of Montreal) is a gluten-free facility. Some products sold under the Glutino brand name are made for them by somebody else (the pretzels are the example that I can think of). I have complete faith in the gluten-free status of their products. Click for their site.

Marcia,

I also LOVE their chocolate chips :) They are great!

I've had both Enjoy Life bagels as well as Kinninnick. I prefer Kinni's taste, but they really were both good, IMO. Enjoy life makes a lot of products that I have enjoyed.

I'm sorry you were glutened :(

Whole Foods has a gluten free bakery that only makes their own gluten free products. Not sure if you have those near you...but they prob have other allergens in them, as well.

You might want to check out allergygrocer.com. They are pretty good about listing information about conditions under products are made.

The chocolate chips are good, and I really like the cinnamon raisin bagels. (so does my toddler!) =)

As far as crackers... I honestly don't know. We eat Ener G crackers. I just found them online... and it says they are free from gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, egg, nut, low protein, rice. Though...they do contain soy. My daughter and I love those things.

Lots of luck, I really hope you find some that you like!! =)

Kinnikinnick does have a number of casein free items too. But, you're right they do use soy in many of their products.

I have used (and enjoyed) Pamela's Wheat Free Bread Mix several times without any problems. As for Bob's Red Mill, their product(s) have majorly glutened me twice now, so I'm done with them. Please note that these comments reflect my personal experiences only and are not based on their manufacturing processes.

gfp ... I'm not sure what you mean by transport ? Are you saying they transport wheat (gluten) and rice in the same containers from time to time ? That's not good ...

What I mean is that bulk food transport usually takes place in dedicated trucks but only dedicated to food grade. Basically yopu have wet transports and dry ones and meats etc are seperate refrigerated ones.

Huge companies own their own but smaller companies buy from suppliers who ship bulk ingredients, be it rice or wheat.

They don't really wash them very often because that would mean getting the insides of the containers wet and the insides are quite compex since 15T of bulk produce or liquid can't be left to roll about so they tend to just empty them out (mostly) and add the new dry product.

gfp,

Thanks, I understand now why they tell you not to buy food out of the bins at health food stores too. I think the nuts I buy are safe because they are located in bins where you have to push up on a piece that slides up to let the product pour out untouched ... no scoops and noone can touch the nuts... I'll stop buying from the lower bins with scoops though ....

Can anyone please tell me the name of an uncontaminated source and a recipe for rice crackers ?

This is bothering me ---- According to Bob, there gluten free line is safe, but some here have been glutenned by his products. Can you tell me if that was from one of his products that was labelled gluten free ? Their website says these are the only safe ones he makes ....

And has anyone ever been glutenned by Pamela's, Kinnikinnick, Glutinos, Ener G, Enjoy Life or Whole Foods ??? Just wanting to make completely sure these are safe ...

Oh and has anyone been glutenned by Lay's Stax ....... I just looked them up and they said Stax are safe, but to check with them on recipe changes ... How often does this kind of thing happen ??

.......THANKS .. Marcia

I have never been glutened by Kinnikinnick. Their staff are not even allowed to eat gluten. They have to eat gluten-free lunches.

I've only eaten the plain Lays Stax and have not had any problems.

I only eat Glutino pretzels and I have never had any problems.

Had a long conversation with Bob's some time back. Here's what I concluded. They DO have a separate area where they grind and package all the things that don't contain gluten. BUT, included in that are soy products, corn products, probably yeast products and all other diverse items they carry which are gluten free. They use stones to grind everything that they do themselves. I asked her how the stones were cleaned and she said by thorough brushing. So I questioned as to whether there COULD be miniscule residue on them and she said yes, but never anything gluten. Now if a person is ONLY allergic to gluten, they should be OK in theory, because Bob's is really trying hard to do a good job. BUT if a person is ALSO allergic to corn or soy or yeast or rice or other items here and there which are not particularly gluten issues, then it's possible that reactions are occuring because of that. I have multiple allergies, am not getting any better and have concluded that I reluctantly need to move on to another company. My little local grocery stores only carry Bob's, so I'm going to have to survive with mail order. Very inconvenient!

My personal question along these lines is: Are there any other companies who carry as wide a range of alternative ingredients (guar gum, cassava flour, buckwheat flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot starch, potato starch, etc.) as Bob's does?? Let's face it, they DO have a great line. It's going to be hard to get everything from different companies.

Hard Bite potato chips are made in a gluten free building.

They are made on the West coast of British Columbia, so I don't know if you can buy them in the US or not. Maybe check out there web site.

Viola,

I googled hard bite potato chips and came up with this website ...

www.homegrownfoods.com/faq.htm

But, I can't see where they say they are gluten free ... Can you tell me if this is the right site ? Do the bags say they are gluten free ? Thanks ... marcia

Gentle heart -

Thanks for the info about Bob's. I'll have to check this out next time I'm feeling invincible .... ;)

Good question ... I haven't done much baking yet, so I don't know who else makes these ... Hopefully someone else knows though ... I did find this though ...

Ener G makes several cooking ingredients, such as

Xanthan Gum - Free Of

gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, egg, yeast, soy, nut, low protein, rice, potato

5.93 oz package Price $11.55

I'm not recommending them since I have never tried it, but it's good to know it's there ...

Kinnikinnick makes the BEST bagels, breads, cinnamon rolls, and cookies. Their flours are very good as well if you're into baking. I personally don't care for anything Ener-G foods makes, especially their bagels.

Lays Stax are made on dedicated lines, but not in a dedicated facility. Some have reported feeling glutened after eating them. Gibbles potato chips are made in a dedicated factory. I have had great success with them. Glutino pretzels are very good, especially with peanut butter. :)
