Are These Products Really Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about whether the gluten-free products I feed my son are truly completely gluten free. Here are the gluten-free foods he often eats:

-Yoplait vanilla yogurt

-Erewhon's version of rice crispies

-the gluten-free rice crispies

-gluten-free cinnimon Chex cereal

-Welch's fruit snacks

-Walmart's Great Value brand fruit cups

-Walmart's cheese

-Fruity pebbles

-Kinnikinick cookies

-Enjoy Life cookies

-Classico pasta sauce

-Minute white rice microwaveable bowls

Has anyone reacted to any of these products before?

Chex and Fruity Pebbles certainly have a chance of CC, but, yes, all of those are supposed to be gluten-free.

The ones I bolded I HAVE NOT used so I can not answer about those but the others I have eaten with no problems at all. Many of the items you listed are either dairy products or products that would be eaten with dairy ie. cereals. Perhaps he has an issue with dairy? Is your home gluten free? He could be getting CC from gluten items others eat or use if your not really careful. Also is he a little person who plays with stuff like Playdoh? Some of those types of things are not safe for us to use.

I would agree with the above. In addition, I have had all the bold items without a problem with exception to the white rice bowls. I have never had these.

As we speak I am having a bowl of Chex Cinnimon Cereal, its my favorite, no problems what so ever, so you can check that one off the list.

Do you ask the question for reassurance? In that case, read no further.

Do you ask because he has symptoms?

There are different levels of sensitivity. While the majority might handle those foods just fine, there are a minority of celiacs/gluten intolerants who react to foods like that. We are the super sensitive celiacs. You need to be watching out for symptoms, plus blood antibody levels can be an indication of a reaction to gluten.

I was thinking the same thing. Out of your list we have not had the classico pasta sauce or the rice bowls. We have tried the Kinnikinick K-toos and animal cookies and loved them and no problems. We also tried one flavor of enjoy life cookie, while no reaction, we didn't like them. As for the rest of the list we have and do buy and eat those without incident. The cinnamon flavor in the cinnamon chex can be problematic for me. It's not the chex cereal but the flavoring as I have had issues with other products with cinnamon flavor.

I use Classico sauces (the red ones) all the time - I *might* have had issues with the olive one a while back, never tried it again. We use the mushroom one a lot.

This is always so difficult ! When one gets 'zinged' by something, it seems like everything causes a reaction - it takes a lot of sleuthing to figure things out !

I also like Classico pasta sauces. Right now I have the Italian Sausage with Peppers & Onions.

This from the Classico website: http://www.classico.com/FAQ.aspx

Which of the Classico® sauces are gluten-free?

All of the Classico® red and white sauces are gluten-free.

ETA: I just discovered they also have a lot of recipes on their site. Maybe that'll give me some badly-needed inspiration.
