Glutino Pretzels

Recommended Posts

My wife has celiac Ds and recently bought Glutino's pretzels. She got bloated and stomach pains within hours. I know this product boasts gluten-free. Any else encounter this reaction?

Is she new to the gluten-free diet? If so, it is best to WAIT a good 3 months for her villi to heal before eating processed gluten-free foods. Glutino's are made in a dedicated facility. They are serious about their gluten-free status.

Or it is possible that she is sensitive to something else in them.

She must be reacting to something else. I know quite a Handful of people who eat these pretzels and do not get ill.

I was going to suggest it may be the soy flour, too.

Ener-g makes a pretzel that doesn't use soy--

They are excellent. :D

I eat this brand of pretzels off and on. When I don't feel well I eat them like they were saltine crackers. Haven't had any problems. Hope you can figure it out....good luck

Glutino are fastidious about making sure that all of their products are gluten free. The production facilities are dedicated to making only gluten-free products. I have met the owner, and he is really committed to serving those needing a completely gluten-free diet. If you want Steven's contact info, send me a PM and I will share it.

As mentioned, it could be the soy that is causing the reaction.

I am going to agree with the others who mentioned the soy. It is not unusual for us to have a problem with it. For some that sensitivity will resolve after we have had some time to heal. For others it may be permanent. I am going to suggest the Ener-g Wylde pretzels, they have no soy and taste great. Glutino has also come out with some soy-free crackers that you may want to try at some point but the Ener-g saltines have soy so be wary of those.
