Do these contain gluten or not? My daughter loves these with p.butter and jelly............I posted about the soy concern. The ingredients of the rice cakes show only rice. But I am reading here they have gluten????

I have not bought them in quite some time, but I do believe they are gluten free. HOWEVER, some people do react to them most likely due to cross contamination. Lumberg Rice Cakes are manufactured on dedicated lines and should not be subject to cross contamination.

this is from their website:

Q. Do Quaker Rice Snacks contain gluten?

A. We understand that individuals sensitive to gluten cannot digest even trace amounts of gluten. To date, the Food and Drug Administration has not defined the term "gluten free." Since so many of our products contain grain ingredients and many products are made in the same facility, we cannot guarantee that any particular product is entirely free of gluten

We use the lundberg rice cakes.

I also suggest not to eat any Quaker products. Lundberg Rice Cakes are wonderful as are the Lundberg Rice Chips. You can also use the Rice chips for a base for things like dip, PB & Jelly & bacon etc.

Also, you will not see any gluten listed on Brach's candy - but do not be deceived. A lot of people react to them.

I have eaten Quaker Rice Cakes for almost 8 yrs and have never been glutened by them. I react to the tiniest amout of gluten too and have never had a problem with Quaker. I think the statement they give is a CYA statement. I only eat one type, the Caramel Corn brand.

I find the Lundberg Ricecakes disgusting. I have tried them several times and have never been able to eat them. I have never found any brand I liked as well as Quaker. If I can't have Quaker, I will give ricecakes up, plain and simple.

I ate the Quaker rice cakes with peanut butter last week and got HORRIBLY sick! I've decided to stick with Lundberg after that episode. From what I've read Quaker says that NONE of their products are considered gluten free because of the way they store things. Of course, I realized that after I got sick.

I have no trouble with rice in general, but cannot eat Quaker rice cakes without serious regrets. It's too bad, because they made a great place to spread peanut butter! :rolleyes: I have the same problem with Ralphs, although not as bad. I have never seen Lundberg - are they in regular grocery stores or health food stores or (gasp) only on the East Coast or . . . do I just not know where to look ? :unsure:

I'm a west coaster, I find it a Fred Meyer in the natural food section, safeway and of course any health food store-which I rarely go to.

I wanted to keep something a little more solid around so I picked up a package of the Lundburg brown rice sea salt rice cakes. They were on sale. I wanted to have something once in awhile to have something to put almond butter on. I love them.

How are they diff than Quaker where they are disgusting? I never was a rice cake eater is why I ask.

Home based Mom, Lundberg only does rice. they are a California company. You should be able to find them everywhere in CA. Maybe they are in the health food section of the grocery instead of the chip aisle. If you can eat rice they have wonderful rice blends of all varieties of rice.

http://www.lundberg.com/ here is a link to their web site.

darlindeb, if I were you I think I would try something else. they might be causing you problems & you do not know it. Well, unless you have been feeling 100% perfect health & turning cart wheels to burn off excess energy. If that is the case then you might be able to enjoy them & should continue to do so. We are all different when it comes to what we can eat.

Thanks for the link. :) They list Safeway as an outlet for their products. Around here Safeway = Vons, so I will look there.

Ok, I will give up my Quaker Ricecakes, but, I will put my peanut butter on an apple before I will buy another brand of ricecake. I have never found a ricecake that can compare to Quaker. A few store brands are ok, but they fall apart the minute you touch them, if I can't spread peanut butter on them, then I don't want them anyways. I only want them for something to put my peanut butter on! ;)

I honestly have given Lundberg a fair chance and I find them very much not to my liking, closer to styrofoam. My sister always ate the Cracker Jack Quaker Ricecakes and never had a problem, the ones without barley. There is another big name brand I tried, but I can't remember the name right now, names escape me unless I see them, I didn't like them either. Pathmark has a store brand that taste ok, but they fall apart the minute you touch them--that's no good.

So, I guess I will put my peanut butter on an apple, which isn't my first choice. The caramel corn ricecake is the one thing I have been able to keep in my diet since going gluten free over 7 yrs ago. It's the only tiny bit of grain I have been able to continue to eat. Even Anne Lee, from Dr. Green's office said it sometimes happens this way and they don't understand, but stick with it if it if I do not seem to have issues, but who knows.

The difference is, Quaker is the only ricecake I have found that is stable, it doesn't fall apart at your touch and the caramel corn at least has a tiny bit of taste to it. That's the only reason I prefer it.

Deb - if Quaker Rice Cakes don't bother you, then keep eating them! ;):D

Why would you give up something that works for you just because it doesn't work for someone else ?! :o

I wouldn't! :ph34r:

"Van's" Waffles are found in the frozen section in stores that carry this brand. They have several, but do have a glutenfree/wheat free.

Deb, I'm guessing you have other intolerances???

Here's the ingrediant list for Van's (Gluten Free):

Water, Brown Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Rice Flour, Pear/Pineapple/Peach Sweetener, Canola Oil, Baking Powder (Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Salt, Soy Flour, Soy Lecithin, Guar Gum.

My kids also like peanut butter on their pancakes if you have a pancake recipe that you like!!

Yeah, I can't have them, I can't have soy. Soy lecithin is ok, but soy flour is out. I knew it would be something I couldn't have. :(

Deb, I eat my almond butter on organic celery. I also will heat up a Mission brand White Corn tortilla & put PB & Jelly on it & roll up - & I add bacon :) Adults can also just eat PB out of a spoon !!!! ;)

I have switched from peanut butter to almond butter. Peanut butter is a legume and can contribute to leaky gut...

Sorry, Deb for the temptation :( I do tend to forget about other intolerances.

Try taking one of the lundberg cakes and drizzle with a little honey before spreading the PB. I usually drizzle mine over the top of the apples/bananas.

I found some at Henry's - buy one get one free, no less! B) I agree they are a bit too crumbly, but I kind of liked the nutty brown rice flavor.

The Lundberg ones are really crumbly! It's annoying but after my illness with Quaker I'm way to scared to go down that route again. I'm jealous if some people can tolerate them well- they are the best!
