Mrs. May's Naturals

Recommended Posts

Hello all...just wanted to say that Mrs. May's Naturals Almond Crunch snacks are very good! :) They are labelled "wheat free" but there are no gluten containing items on the ingredient list (rice malt is used) and I have never reacted. Basically, these look like Rice Krispie squares made with almonds. They're coated with cane juice.

Just be careful with Mrs. May's stuff as they are imported from China...we used to buy them and noticed they didn't state "gluten free" only "wheat free." I called Mrs. Mays here in north america & they couldn't answer the gluten-free status question. We have since stopped buying the product.

So proceed with caution -- due to recent newstories about products from China having ingredient problems.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Please be very careful with Mrs. Mays. Some of the older stock had barley in the rice malt. My son and I both got sick from it.

I called Mrs. Mays on April 30. She said that since 11/06, all their products are gluten free. The packaging has yet to be updated. The rice malt did have gluten (barley) in it before then. So if the product you have was produced after 11/06 (pull date of 11/07 or later), it is gluten free as well as wheat free. The product has a one year shelf life, and the pull date is printed in the upper left hand corner of the package. I bought some of the cashew crunch last week (that one says gluten free), but have yet to buy the almond one again since my son and I got sick. The packaging on that one still says wheat free.
