Katz Gluten Free Products

Saw some of their donuts at a grocery store and looked up their website, they seem to have a wide variety of baked goods.  I'm a bit worried to try them because some of their products have oats and I react to oats in the same way I react to gluten, even allegedly gluten-free oats.  So I'm wondering, has anyone else tried their products?

I also react to gluten-free oats like gluten.  I found that even back when I was less sensitive and able to eat more processed foods, I had to avoid foods processed in facilities that also processed gluten free oats.

It's really annoying because so many gluten-free companies use oats.  Is it something with the proteins in oats that causes a gluten-like reaction, or is it that oats are basically impossible to be gluten-free because of where and how they are grown?

i think it's because of where they are grown and where they are processed are also commonly where wheat is grown and processed..  i have a whole package of bob's <gluten free> and i love oatmeal but have been afraid to try them.  one of these days..... :)

Why don't some of you contact Katz.  Perpaps some of their products are produced on dedicated equipment, without oats.   It's worth the call. :D

Ordinary commercially grown oats are almost certainly contaminated with wheat. Some samples have tested over 1000 ppm (we debate the safety of 20 ppm here frequently).

 

Some people with celiac disease react to even pure oats, but many can tolerate pure oats. After being oat-free for over ten years, I tried Bob's Red Mill pure oats last year. I have had not adverse effects, and they are a good source of fiber. I eat them about once a week.

 

The only way to learn whether you are sensitive to oats is to try them while not adding anything else to your diet for a few days in each direction.

To reiterate what psawyer said, it's possible that the protein in oats causes you problems and/or it's also very likely oats have wheat/other gluten grain cc in them.

So their oat products are produced away from their other products?  That's good to know.  I may have to give them a try.  I'll go crazy if I don't find some donuts I can handle!!!

Have you tried Kinnikinnick?  They are made in a gluten free facility.  They don't even let their workers bring in lunch.  I used to eat them before my symptoms got the better of me.

 

They test to 5 ppm according to Jane Anderson: http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/GlutenFreeBreadProducts/tp/Gluten-Free-Hamburger-Buns-Hot-Dog-Buns.htm

FWIW, I have tried the Katz products and have had no issues whatsoever. 

I just do not need to have them around while I try to lose some of the weight I gained post-DX, however. :lol:

Their products are very good.

    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
    • Howdy, No stranger to forums as I've found them to be a great tool for my interests in motorcycles and old trucks but now find myself needing to educate myself in dealing with Celiac Disease. I'm a male in my fifties now and have had to deal with eczema since I was about six years old that was mostly contained to my feet and legs and outgrew it for the most part in my teens. I would have occasional flare ups but about three months ago my elbows and upper torso broke out in blisters and itched like no tomorrow. I hoped it would go away and used Cortisone for relief but finally made an appointment with the Dermatologist. As I'm sure most do, I began researching the internet since this outbreak seemed different than my eczema as a child, and wondered if DH was the culprit. When I showed the Doc and expressed my concern he said, "I have dozens come in that think they are Celiac and are not...but you, most likely are". He did two biopsy's, one for a local lab and the other he sent to the Mayo Clinic and a week later it was confirmed. At the time of the biopsy results I had been gluten-free for two weeks but to my surprise they told me to start eating gluten again as they wanted to do a upper GI scope and needed some lesions to biopsy. I took full advantage and formed a bucket list that ended with pancakes the night before the scope. Still waiting for those results that should come any day and started Dapsone the day after. They have me doing blood work weekly to start and I hope to be off that stuff within a year. My wife has been gluten-free for the better part of ten years as gluten and dairy just don't agree with her. This has been helpful to me since she knows what the good stuff is and we both do the weekly shopping together and so I've learned a lot already, I am somewhat concerned about hidden gluten though, so I still have much to learn. Looking forward to meeting other members of the forum.
