Philadelphia Cream Cheese

Recommended Posts

I ate Philadelphia's Vegetable Cream Cheese on celery sticks and snap peas and had stomach pains after. I haven't reacted to other Philadelphia products - has anyone else ever had issues with this?

Kraft generally declares if their food has gluten, and they don't say anything about it on the website here: http://www.kraftrecipes.com/Products/ProductInfoDisplay.aspx?SiteId=1&Product=2100061292 but it does have natural flavors in it, which is something you should always check.

Here's Kraft's certified gluten free list. Unless it falls under one of the categories, it's not on there: http://www.kraft.com.au/HealthyLiving/SpecialDiets/FoodIntolerance/GlutenFreeProducts.htm

I hadn't checked Kraft's website for a gluten free list - I honestly didn't think of it for cream cheese, since I hadn't reacted to others. What's interesting is I also use their Honey Nut cream cheese, which isn't on that gluten free list, but I don't react to it. I'll just have to be more careful with their products I guess.

In the US Kraft does not put out a gluten free list. The link posted is for Australia. However Kraft is a pretty good company for labeling and will put any gluten containing ingredients clearly on the label.

Philadelphia Cream Cheese varities from Kraft are a staple at our house ( I know cream cheese shouldn't be a staple::)) But we use it in a lot of recipes, dips, etc. We have never had any problems and are very sensitive to CC. Good luck.

I use a variety of flavors as well and have never had an issue. Do you have anyone in your house who eats gluten? Maybe they dipped a gluten product in your cream cheese? Its happened to me!

Maybe it isn't gluten. Is it possible that you have a problem with casein? Do you react to other cheeses?

I had some Philly Cream Cheese and had exposive reaction. Then I saw it has WHEY protein listed. I think that makes it non gluten free.

No, sorry, but whey is gluten free - it is the liquid that precipitates out from yogurt or butter (when churned) or cottage cheese. If you had an explosive reaction it could be from lactose intolerance or from casein intolerance.

Ok I believe you. I do have celiac disease and like most lactose too. I did take the Lactaid but something really got me after I had two types of Philly Cream Cheese. Seems that the Lactaid doesn't always work for me with cheese products, like hit or miss.. I now usually take two tabs.

I found a very good substitute for cream cheese called Mascarpone which is very tasteful. I have not had troubles with this and it is listed as gluten-free online.. :-)

Just to add it was a Philly Creame Cheese with spinach and aricoke.

I have an explosive reaction to spinach.

I would suggest that your reaction may be to something other than gluten.
