Glutened By Kraft Bar-b-q Sauce

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've read in other threads that Kraft is a company that gives full disclosure on their labels. But something is not right, because I got glutened off their barbecue sauce. I used the Mesquite Smoked barbecue sauce to make ribs Friday night (yes, I checked label in store before I bought, and double-checked in online) and I got sick. Glutened sick, which I'm familiar with how it feels. This does not happen with the Original flavor.

Just wanted to give everyone fair warning about this flavor.

Is there any possibility whatsoever that maybe it was some kind of a flu bug? Lots of viruses are going around right now....

I trust Kraft absolutely, completely 100%...... never had a problem with them.

What kind of distilled vinegar is used in it? For most of us gluten grains when distilled are fine but for the rare oddball like myself a reaction will occur. This doesn't mean it isn't safe for most celiacs as the majority do tolerate it.

Just wanted to chime in for those of us who are trying to watch our calories, fat, carbs, sugars, and gluten. I recently discovered Walden Farms products at Sprouts:

They use Splenda so no good if you're scared of that stuff but their BBQ sauce which is 'okay' has no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind. It's no Sweet Baby Rays but it works. Their salad dressings also have no calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars.

The saying under my name says it all about how I feel about mainstream products. To those of you who have not ever become sick by eating supposedly "gluten-free" products by Kraft I would simply like to point out that cc WILL happen in facilities that are not dedicated. It would be silly to believe that it is impossible for someone to get glutenized by eating something that was manufactured in one of Kraft's facilities. It probably happens more than you think but may often be written off as it was by posters here as the flu or some other possibility.

I am an ultra sensitive celiac that actually passes out within hours of eating gluten. When I was first diagnosed and I didn't really realize how serious the cc issue was, I ate many mainstream products that were supposedly gluten free. I can tell you that with the exception of a very few items, I passed out everytime, Kraft products included. That's my personal experience.

It's unfortunate that you are super sensitive.

Of course CC will happen. But not all the time, equally, with all products made in a facility that also processes wheat products. That would be just as silly to believe.

Yes of course, I didn't mean that every mainstream item would be cross contaminated everytime. I was merely saying that mainstream items can in no way be guaranteed gluten-free and are susceptible to CC. So it would not be unrealistic to discover that someone got glutenized by Kraft BBQ sauce, that's all.

I would like to say that I do not touch the BBQ sauces because a great deal of time they have Barley Malt in them which is a gluten.

I have never been made sick by Kraft and I am so sensitive that miniscule crumbs devastate me. I would definitely suggest calling the company.

Yeah I must also chime in here that I am scarily sensitive to gluten that sometimes I swear just some particles in the air, or one or 2 crumbs touching that I eat, is enough to trigger a reaction. Even with that fact, I have never, ever had a problem with Kraft. If I buy any bbq sauces or salad dressings, etc I also make sure its made by them and only them.
