Gluten Free Nuts

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had experience with Kirklands Walnuts or Almonds. I cannot tolerate even the trace amounts of CC on most nuts. I am really missing not having nuts in my diet. I know they are not processed in a gluten free facility, so I'm wondering if some of you might have some information. Can I eat them? I checked out a lot of places online and they all tell me their nuts are processed with wheat. I got sick from some raw pumpkin seeds I bought from nutsonline dot com. Thanks for any help.....signed desperate for a nut...:)

I am HIGHLY sensitive to gluten and Planter's mixed nuts, made by Kraft, (like the South Beach diet mix- not the roasted-I haven't tried those) have never given me any issues. I have eaten them almost daily for 2 years and I would know if there were any gluten.

Just a thought...others will post,

I buy all the different Kirkland brand nuts as well as the trail mix, no problems and my dd is super-sensitive.

I was wondering the same thing. I bought organic nuts and dried fruits from the health food store. They couldn't tell me whether they were prepared in a gluten-free environment since they were packaged in plain, unlabeled plastic bags. I'm afraid to eat them!! I'm new at all of this and have made at least one mistake every day for the 6+ weeks I've been at this. I would appreciate input along with 'desperate for a nut'. Thanks for the help.

Thank you Lisa and celiac-mommy! I will try both of them...:) Appreciate your help.

Ann72601 I would be leary of any fruit or nuts out of those bins in the health food store. If that's where they came from, and if not, with no label it's like playing Russian Roulette. The bins can be cross contaminated. You will make mistakes, we all do, hopefully as we become more aware the mistakes will be less and less, just be diligent and read your labels. It's been a little over a year for me and every once in a while something slips by me. I eat a whole food diet so it's not so hard for me. But like I said I am missing nuts...and hope to be able to add these back into my diet...hope the same for you, good luck. Linda

I truly appreciate the help that is given to me by the kind and seasoned folks here. I always leave feeling not only more informed, but hopeful. Thank you so much.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

I am also highly sensitive to any CC and have confirmation that Blue Diamonds Almonds are perfectly safe, even the majority of the flavored ones are ok. Just be careful of a couple of their flavors like Wasabi and Soy Sauce. Those do have wheat but it is clearly listed. I think there is also one other flavor that might have gluten so just read the labels.

Planters as previously mentioned are pretty much safe, but there a couple of them that do contain oats and possibly even wheat, so again, just read the labels.

I buy either Now brand nuts or I get Wegmans brand. If you shop at Wegmans do be sure that the size container you get has the circle G. I usually get cashews there and noticed at one time that one size had the G and another size package didn't. When I called to ask they said that different companies produce the different sizes and the ones without the G were not gluten free.

Thanks for starting this thread! I'm still adapting to eating gluten free, and I thought reading labels had pretty much become a habit, but I have never thought about checking the ingredients on bags of nuts! I'm glad I found this site, it's been very helpful!
