I bought the chreese that comes in the box with regular pasta. The pasta itself is NOT gluten free, but I am wondering if the actual chreese is? Does anyone know?

I plan on just using the packet and Tinkyada gluten-free pasta.

Chreese is gluten-free. It's kind of funky, but I like it. Make sure you take your pot off the heat before you mix the powder with the liquid (if you mix it in an already heated pan it gets clumpy). You usually need more liquid than it says, and it really helps to add in olive oil and Italian herbs at the end.

It's strange because it's not a very consistent product. Sometimes I buy it and it's soooo good and other times it tastes bitter and strange. :huh:

I like the alfredo style chreese with rice pasta in the box.

Well that was probably more than what you wanted to know. :lol:

off topic a little, but annie's makes gluten-free mac and cheese!


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

:lol::lol::lol:

Laughing at myself . . . I have never heard of chreese before . . . I thought your topic must have had a typo but since you kept typing it "wrong" and Mango responded with it typed the same way, I decided I must go google!!!

Learn something new everyday!!! And now I've got a product to check out if we take my daughter dairy free . . . Thanks!

No, sadly it's not dairy free...and I'm now casein free as well. Wait, what's this chreese stuff? They make soy AND dairy free cheese? *goes to wikipedia in excitement*

All Chreese is dairy and soy free but not all of it is gluten-free so check the boxes and packets. They make a gluten-free line and a regular line and I don't think the wheat mac and cheese has the gluten-free sauce. The gluten-free pasta is not too good so I usually get the sauce packets and mix it with Tinkyada. The nacho chreese in the jar is pretty good too.

Chreese Packets

Is this true? So if I got the packed of chreese from a regular box of pasta...will I get glutened? Or do I have to buy the chreese separately. I bought the gluten free pasta mix tihng once and it was terrible pasta. So, I wanted to buy the regular one, just to get the regular flavor of chreese (not the alfedo stuff! blech!) and just make it with gluten-free pasta.

So, is ALLLLLLL chreese gluten-free? :)

What a funny sentence. It's too bad google exists. We could have fooled Janet into thinking we have some sort of weird obsession with the r key. :rolleyes:

I seriously thought all chreese was gluten-free when I replied earlier, but now I am doubting myself. :unsure:. I don't know! :ph34r::blink: I wonder b/c lentil flour is listed as an ingredient in the gluten-free mac and chreese boxes and I don't see it listed on the regular boxes...hmm...confusion. :unsure: :unsure:

The thing to be careful of with Chreese is that they put MSG in their products. Another dairy free cheese is made by Galaxy Nutritional Foods, but they also use MSG in at least some if not all of their products. Too bad, because they also make a dairy-free, soy-free cheese product.

Packaging labels are often deceptive when it comes to MSG. Here's some good info on the topic: www.truthinlabeling.org

When I saw your name here I knew that's what your post was going to be about. :)

I've read up on this and I can't find anything that proves nutritional yeast = msg. If you have a source other than truth in labeling (which I've read thoroughly) would you PM it to me? (I don't want to debate about msg on Kassandra's thread). Thanks.

I unfortunately can't eat the Chreese because it has tapioca :angry: That stuff is in everything....and it does not like me :P

Anyway, I bought the Galaxy Rice Cheese--the Vegan is gluten, soy, casein and lactose free. I hope it's not taste free :lol: . I haven't tried it yet.

Unfortunately, not all chreese is gluten-free. The dry mixes have a regular version and a gluten-free version. The Nacho Chreese in the jar is gluten-free. Here are the ingredients for the regular cheddar cheese sauce and the gluten-free version:

Cheddar Style Chreese Mix

Ingredients: Organic Unbleached White Flour, Nutritional Yeast, Organic Tapioca Starch, Unrefined Sea Salt, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Ground Yellow Mustard Seed, Organic Onion Powder, and Annatto.

Contains Wheat.

Cheddar Style Gluten Free Chreese Mix

Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Tapioca Starch, Nutritional yeast, Organic Green Lentil Flour, Unrefined Sea Salt, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Ground Yellow Mustard Seed, Organic Onion Powder, and Annatto.

You can see the chreese packets here: http://www.chreese.com/morepack.itml#orig. and the mac and chreese here: http://www.chreese.com/pastas.itml

The packages look annoyingly similar...
