Is Amy's Gluten-Free Food Safe To Eat?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I purchased some Amy's soups and frozen dinners. On the back, the label states "gluten free," yet they also say that their foods are made in the same facility that uses wheat. Has anyone used Amy's foods and if so, what have been your experience(s).

Thanks for the replies!

You should search the site for answers to this question, Amy's has been touched upon many times on this board...but I'll still throw in my two cents. I love a company that tries to help those of us with celiac disease, however, I no longer eat Amy's. In my experience, as well as many other peoples on this board, Amy's has a high rate of cross contamination and makes some people decently ill. However, there are others on this board who love it and have no issues. I think it just is a personal choice to see how your body reacts to their products. I just don't eat their stuff anymore because I didn't like the way it made me feel afterwards. That's not to say they're not a good company and that you shouldn't give it a shot! Just didn't work for me!

I have called Amy's regarding that issue. The representative told me that their gluten-free foods and wheat foods are made on separate days - greatly minimising cross-contamination risks. She also assured me that all equipment is cleaned very thoroughly. Granted, this was about 2 years ago...so if you are still unsure, my suggestion is to call the company.

Always got nailed by Amy's. Never eat it anymore. Very sensitive though and dedicated companies and dedicated lines are essential for me. Never would have believed it 'til I lived it.

An Amy's representative told me that they test their food to under 5 ppm gluten. I think that that is very responsible of them, especially since the FDA recommendations set gluten free at 20 ppm. I still can't eat it though. I am very sensitive just like Oceangirl.

I am very sensitive and I eat Amy's Bistro Burgers all of the time on my salads. That product seems to be just fine for me. I have not tried anything else from Amy's, I try to avoid processed meals, but her Bistro Burgers are my guilty indulgence. I love them.

I consider myself very sensitive ( can't walk into a kitchen where flour has been used ) but have never had problems with any of Amy's products.

Our family has not had good luck with Amy's products, so we avoid them, but that's just us.

I eat Amy's mac&cheese frequently and have never had a problem. I mix in some crip bacon or baked ham and it makes a whole lunch.
