Quaker Rice Snacks Now Contain Wheat!

Recommended Posts

I just received an email from my celiac support group, with an attachment from Quaker, stating:

Quaker Rice Snacks have taken a change for the better. They are now made with the wholesome goodness of wheat, brown rice, and corn.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Since those have never been something that was considered safe I am glad they finally got it on the label. At least now we clearly know they are not for us.

Ravenwoodglass---I gots to tell ya, I love your avatar. I do like chickens, and this one, it has such a personally.

I trusted Quaker Rice Cakes for a very long time, only ate the caramel corn cakes, probably just to have something to put my peanut butter on. I haven't had a rice cake in 1 1/2 years, I do not eat grains at all anymore.

I did think it was something I should put into a thread for those who do still eat them. Shame on Quaker...it's time the public knows wheat is not healthy.

As always I'll keep an eye on the ingredients for a change, but the Quakes that I just bought do not list wheat.

The new website lists that they've added wheat, but my experience is that it can take MONTHS for the new formulations to pop up in the stores. I'm still seeing Chex with barley malt in mind. Makes you wonder just how old the food we buy in a box is....

(As you note, however, that is why we ALWAYS read labels. ;) )

I am not seeing that anywhere on the site

If you click on the link to Quakers website that I put in my first post, it says it right there on the front page. I have a download from my celiea support group also, but don't know how to put that here. My group sent it out last night, it's current, very current. It may not be in the stores yet, but they will be. One of the Cracker Jack flavors has always contained barley, that's right on the package.

Thanks, I didn't realize his expression until I got home and downloaded the the pictures. He was not a happy camper to have my camera lens in his face. I was not a happy camper either when a couple hours later I realized I should not have been breathing in all the grain dust that was in the exhibit. Not a good time last weekend. Duh.

I wasn't suprprised to see this, but find it odd that it took so long. When I was diagnosed in Sept, and contacted Quaker, they told me that they due to cross contamination in every step of the manufacturing starting at harvest they wouldn't recommend any of their products to those with any form of wheat sensitivity or allergy. That pretty much said to me that nothing they manufacture was safe.

I can't be sure anymore, but I used to eat the Caramel Corn Rice Cakes for nearly 7 years, and I don't think they bothered me, now, I am not so sure. I did get glutened once by their Chocolate Chip Rice Snacks, and I only ate 1 and 1/2, tiny little cookie shaped cakes. I was very sick that time, and never, ever bought the snacks again.

When the Cracker Jack cakes first came out, I really liked them. I didn't realize at the time, they had 2 styles. I was talking to my sister about them and she told me I had better check the package, and sure enough, I was eating the type with barley in them. I never bought those again either.

I had been told repeatedly back then not to trust Quaker.
