Whole Foods 365 Brand

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I am trying to come to terms with the fact that it seems my daughter is still getting routinely glutened in spite of our best efforts and research. We have made a list of every product that touches her or she consumes and verified the status of each. The ones that stand out predominently in her diet at the 365 Brand items. Many of them say; "good manufacturing practices used to segregate ingredients in a facility that also produces wheat . . ."

Some of the many items in question are these:

Spices

Vanilla

peanut butter

fruit spread

canned beans (black, kidney, refried)

frozen veggies

frozen fruit

Dairy products (cheeses mostly)

My daughter does not show any outward signs of having been glutened and her diet is ultra strict (eats nothing but what is prepared by us and we're 100% gluten-free at home). But her tTg remains high (86) after 1 year on the diet. So, the doc. is convinced something we are doing is contaminating her. Anyone have thoughts on Whole Foods house brand items?

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

I'm giving you the link to a topic I started last year. Several of us had problems with the 365 Brand.

If you read to the end, I say in that thread that I don't know if 100 parts per million is sufficient. I know now that it's way too high. I'm not sure if this has changed, but you might want to take a look--

Also, if you do a search in the "Products" forum, there are other threads that discuss the Whole Foods brands.
