Glutino Products & Iodine Issues

Recommended Posts

Firstly let me say that Glutino products are made in a dedicated gluten free facility. They don't make anything that contains gluten at all. I'm saying this mostly for the newbies to this board. Glutino does not say on their packages nor on their website that they make their stuff in dedicated gluten-free facilities ~~~ I guess to them it's a no brainer but to people who don't know that ALL they make are gluten-free products then it's a question up for grabs. I didn't know. And so I called them. When they told me that I suggested they at least state that on the home page of their website. She said she would put that through to the website manager.

Secondly, I got to thinking & wondering if they use iodized salt in their products so I emailed them. The following is my question & their answer:

Do you use iodized salt in your products? I ask because I have dermatitis herpetiformis & have to go low iodine when it flares so I need to know.

Thank you for contacting Glutino. We use non iodized salt.

That may be--but both my boyfriend and I got headaches from eating their cookies. I think the special de-glutenized flour they use is safe for many, but not all.


Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

And this is relevant to the iodine topic because???

Only in that she started by saying the Glutino products are produced in a completely safe non gluten environment. They clearly are not safe for everyone due to the type of flour they use.

Nevertheless I agree, it is not relevant to the iodine issue per se.

Thank you for posting this information.

The last time I had a reaction I had only eaten glutino pretzels and wondered about the salt.

I have DH.

It turns out I was reacting to gluten CC and I eventually found the source and it wasn't their product.

It is good to know they don't use iodized salt in their products.

Especially for those of us with DH.

Thanks again.

Squirmingitch,

What can I say, but, I LOVE YOU!!! I was just thinking about throwing away any munchies with salt on them because I can't stand this DH anymore. I'm so tired of not sleeping at night, that now I am going to seriously (not halfheartedly) watch my iodine intake. It's so good to know that I can still have a salty snack once in awhile.

Thanks, Laura :lol:

I'm SO glad! I also posted about Frito Lay! Gluten-free snacks from them are safe --- no iodized salt. AND Old El Paso stuff too. YAY!biggrin.gif

But you have to check about everything --- I once called about some ham that we love & they use iodized salt.sad.gif
