Wegmans Food Labels Are Confusing Me

For all those in the NY, NJ, and PA areas, you know about wegmans. Everyone else, wegmans is a great food store! They have regular brand foods, a great selection of organic stuff and natural products and their own wegmans brand. The wegmans brand is labled with allergy information, this link should work http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-eZvaG9ifFvo/Toh98Jc9SdI/AAAAAAAABHo/hJubGoffOx8/s1600/IMG_4769.JPG

 

This makes shopping really easy, usually. There are some products with no labels, and they have me confused and puzzled. One in particular is their yogurt blue cheese dressing. It is not labeled with anything and im a NOOB, but the ingredients don't seem to contain gluten. Here is a link to the product. http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=10002&productId=670248

 

I used to love treating myself to this dressing ocassionally, but now that I have celiac disease, I have to analyze everything. I had a bit yesterday at lunch, it was more like a half teaspoon of this dressing and the rest was balsamic vinegarette (also wegmans brand but had a gluten free label). I don't feel like im having any reaction today.

 

Please overanaylze with me and lets see if i can put this on my shopping list this week!

Will you send me a bottle? That sounds yummy!

From a gluten-free stand point, that looks fine to me. Some people will quibble about the healthiness of the ingredients, but that's the nature of the Internet.

If it had wheat, it would have to clearly label that. If it contained malt vinegar, it would label it too - that's a special ingredient to brag about. Malt vinegar is not " distilled vinegar".

It's alot lower in fat and calories than regular, but the sodium is a bit much. I really liked it mixed with the balsamic dressing actually. I had it on a field greens salad with a half a red bell pepper, half a cucumber, and a whole carrot! All organic because I was visiting my brother and his family for the day. I was visualizing healing my intestines while eating it, LOL (think it, be it)

The best way for you to get an answer is to call 1-800-wegmans.  They are one of the best companies IMHO around. I once, for example, called about some peanuts that had the gluten free label on one size but not another. I was told it was because of risk of CC with the can that didn't have the circle G on it. I believe that some family members of the Wegman family are celiac and they are very good at labeling carefully. 

Personally if it is a Wegmans item and isn't a single ingredient item like ground coffee then I pick something else. 

Be sure to pick up their Natures Marketplace magazine when your there. It has some good coupons. The last couple have had coupons for $1 off on UDI's products.

We are members and we are supposed to be getting a magazine every month.. but we dont get it in the mail or anything.

 

They are AMAZING with things like this though. I called them just the other day because last week we wanted to get their turkey with sage breakfast sausage. It was labeled with a G but the last ingredient was maltodextrin from an unspecified source. We didn't get it but I took a pic of the packaging and called them about it. They took down my information and the product info and called their supplier and returned my call the next morning. It was infact gluten free (dont know why i doubted) the maltodextrin was made from corn.

In the US, maltodextrin is almost always corn. If it is from wheat, then by federal law (FALCPA) that must be clearly disclosed. I don't worry about maltodextrin.

They don't mail out the Nature's Marketplace mag that I know of although I do sometimes get their other general mag but I think that goes out quarterly. I pick up the Nature's Marketplace mag in the organic/gluten free ('Nature's Marketplace') section of the store.

    • Its interesting you should say that. I don't normally drink alcohol, I've always felt it tasted like medicine - no idea why! -  but drank some sparkling wine recently out of politeness.  Oh the pain!  At my last appointment my gastroenterologist had asked me if I drank - she never told me why, but if that's what alcohol does to people with gastritis it should be the first thing to avoid I reckon. Also interesting that you had that as an initial diagnosis.  I too had what I am sure was gastritis pain before I was diagnosed.  I was on omeprazole for a month which took the pain away but omeprazole seems to cause D for me. The strange thing was after I stopped the omeprazole the D did not.  That was why I ended up having the scope.  In a way, I wonder if I would have ever been diagnosed had it not been for the gastritis and the omeprozole. 
    • Joseph, for the first 6 months at least, you might want to cook ALL fruits & veggies except maybe bananas & pears. Make it easier on your damaged gut to digest and allow it to heal faster. Also, home made bone broth is amazingly nutritious as well as healing. https://blog.paleohacks.com/bone-broth-recipe/#
    • Can you tell me if my symptoms can be caused by gluten intolerance? burning sensation in mouth (gums, lips) quickly rising blood sugar after eating gluten, then high heart rate I only eat gluten once a day. Later in the day, blood sugar won’t rise as much, but also goes down too much, despite eating a good combination of protein, carbs, veggies. No matter if I eat less or more. burning esophagus burning stomach stool that passes so quickly that I have bad cramps for a while afterwards and feel nauseous often joint pain itching burning skin constipation ringing in my ears nightmares  stiff muscles, especially in my arms anxiety after eatng gluten temper tantrum after eating gluten (crying, anger, anxiety, ocd thoughts) hunger after eating gluten; sometims for hours, even at night shortness of breath/air hunger/not being able to breathe in deeply yawning I am feeling so desperate. I had blood tests and biopsy and it showed no celiac disease. I do have symptoms of itching, burning mouth, high heart beat, nausea shortly after eating gluten, so I know I am sensitive. I tried to stop gluten and then got such bad hypoglycemia, that I did not know how to continue. So I tapered slowly. But in the meantime, not really getting better. The hypoglycemia is now worse and seems to have to do with my hormonal cycle, which is also messed up. Tryng to stop gluten actually worsened pre-existing mild hypoglycemia. Also when teying to stop, I felt very dizzy, as if my blood sugar was too low all the time (couldn’t measure, no meter back then). I got very anxious, a lot of itching, my menstrual cycle got messed up, pain in my calves and cramps in my feet. When I cut out a small bit, I had it milder. Especially the dizzyness, brain fog and not being able to think clear got better. Can I expect the hypoglycemia to get better?  I am so fed up with feeling sick all the time. But I am afraid too, what will hapoen when I stop, as I know the last time I tried was bad.  Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer my questions. Kirsty
    • You can be safe with just a general multivitamin.  Look for one that is gluten free.  Read our Newie 101 thread located under the “Coping” section of the forum for tips.  Browse through Celiac.com for more ideas.   Food is till the best source for vitamins and minerals, but sometime supplementation is needed.  I do not take any (took iron when I was first diagnosed since my anemia was severe), however, I make sure I eat a varied gluten-free diet and I try to avoid processed junk food.   You might look into avoiding nightshades for a while (white potatoes, tomatoes) to see if that helps with joint pain.  Besides celiac disease being ruled out (please make sure you had more than the TTG IgA and IgA deficiency test because not all celiacs test positive to the TTG like me), did they check for R. Arthritis?   I am sure others will contribute more soon.   Welcome to the forum!  
    • Hey Joseph!   You might re-think that gluten-free oatmeal.   For years,  oatmeal was prohibited.  Researchers eventually determined that some celiacs could have oatmeal as long as it is pure (no possibility of cross contamination from field to factory).  But some 10% of celiacs  still react to oatmeal.  Plus, there is a new controversy over sorted vs. dedicated grown oats.  So, best to avoid oats for the first six months and then experiment.   When my GI tract is inflamed from celiac disease (flare-up) from accidentally being exposed to gluten, I stick to well-cooked foods (even fruit).  It makes it easier to digest.  Once better, I go back to my normal gluten-free diet.
