Hello, I Was Wondering If Anyone Knew If "hellmann's Cheesy Jalapeno Dipping Sauce" Is Gluten Free?

Hello! I have recently found out that I am gluten intolerant. I am not overly stoked obviously. I love my breads haha. I have been browsing the internet to see what I can and can not eat from my regular foods. Anyway, I was about to order gluten free pizza and Hellmann's Cheesy Jalapeno Dipping Sauce when I realized I could not find the ingredients to it any where, also, if I did I wouldn't have a clue what to look for :S this is all so new to me.

 

I know it is a pretty stupid question but I am curious and the gluten free forums seem like a pretty good place to go and ask.

 

Thank-You!

Welcome to the board.

Hellmans is a Unilever company and they will not hide gluten ingredients so simply read the jar. The more important part of your query is that you are 'ordering a gluten-free pizza'. I really hope it was not from Domino's as their pizzas are likely to be heavily cross contaminated and not safe for us.

If you are newly diagnosed it is best to stick with whole foods for a bit. Be sure to read the Celiac 101 section to know what you need to do to keep yourself safe. The gluten-free lifestyle takes some getting used to but it is well worth the trouble.

Farmer's market. Buy some jalepenos. Buy some bell peppers. Buy some vinegar. Buy some corn starch. Puree the peppers, add some vinegar. Thicken it with the corn starch. Those are the only ingredients you need, unless you like the taste of polysorbate 60, propylene glycol, disodium EDTA, and all of the other crap they put in it. :lol:

 

Honestly though, WHY do they put all of that garbage into the things people eat and still call it FOOD??!! :angry:

Thank you guys!

Yeah I have been doing a lot of research in the past couple days since I found out, I just think my mind got too jumbled and I just just have the patience to look through all of google to find it aha.

 

No its wasn't Dominos, it was a local pizza store , my friend is celiac and told me it was the safest pizza place to eat!

 

Yeah farmers market is a better idea aha, I have thought about getting a few days free and making a lot of my own stuff for the next few months and freezing it so I don't have to overly worry about everything I eat!! Also because the random things they put in food scares me!

honestly, once i got used to making my own stuff, i don't have the inclination to go back to store bought - alot of the additives they put in are to aid in shelf life - i make guacamole, for example, that keeps 2 weeks in the fridge and that's because it contains lime juice :)  and to make it stay pretty, i put a piece of plastic wrap inside the jar on top of the guac to reduce the amount of air it comes in contact with, although it's perfectly fine even if it turns a little darker green - and i really don't need it to keep for 2 months!

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
