Kraft Foods Gluten Free? And Some Other Brands...

Recommended Posts

I think somewhere on here that Kraft clearly lables gluten in all there foods. I bought some ranch tonight and had some with dinner. I think I should have asked first though. OPPPS! Here's the list of ingrediants water, soybean oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, contians less than 2% of egg yolks, whey (from milk), modified food starch, garlic juice, buttermilk, monosodium glutamate, xantham gum, phosphoric acid, sorbic acid and calcium disodium edta as preservatives, polysorbate a60, artificial color, tartaric acid, spice, dried parssley, artificial flavor. Am I ok? would say wheat, barly , rye, if it had it in there correct?

KUDOS to HORMEL for labeling gluten-free foods gluten-free!!!!!

Ok and here's the confusing one...

When a food says Contains: Milk, Wheat, Soy it means that that is all of the common allergens in that food right??

I bought some Delimex Tacitos that said Contains: Soy and milk I assumed that they are gluten-free. So if an food lists what allergens it contains and it doesnt say wheat am I safe? Anyone eat or know about Delimex frozen tacitos??

As the days pass this becomes easier and more confusing. It's surely bitter sweet!

When a food says Contains: Milk, Wheat, Soy it means that that is all of the common allergens in that food right?? Yes, Just remember that barley is gluten but is not required to be disclosed on the label. Gluten is not considered a common allergen. Wheat is.

I bought some Delimex Tacitos that said Contains: Soy and milk I assumed that they are gluten-free. So if an food lists what allergens it contains and it doesnt say wheat am I safe?As long as it doesn't list ingredients that could contain barley. So be aware of what they are and contact the company if you don't know.

Anyone eat or know about Delimex frozen tacitos??

The labeling law only requires manufacturers to call out the top 8 allergens. Wheat must be called out if it is in there. However, barley, rye and oats do not have to be called out.

They are required to include the "big 8" somewhere on their ingredient statement if it is added to the product. The Big 8 allergens include milk, eggs, fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod), Crustacean shellfish (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp), tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans), peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. They can do this one of 2 ways:

In the list of ingredients, put the name of the food source of the major food allergen in parenthesis after the common or usual name of the ingredient when that name does not already appear in the ingredient statement.

-or-

Immediately after or adjacent to the list of ingredients, put the word "Contains" followed by the name of the food for each of the major food allergens present in the food

Kraft is one of the good guys. They will clearly list as in wheat, rye, barley and malt. If those words are not on the label then it's just not in there.

Wheat, as ONE of the eight allergens, by law will be listed either in the ingredients or in the allergen statement. Barley, rye and malt are not required to be listed. Here is a list of companies who will list ALL forms of gluten:

Delimex does have taquitos that do not have gluten, but I believe the ones with cheese do contain gluten. Delimex is owned by Heinz so, if gluten is not listed, it will be safe. They have a huge list of gluten free products and you can contact them by their web site.
