You will not BELIEVE the crap filled email I recieved from quaker about their mini rice cakes....take a look at this. I REALLY think companies need to be held accountable for their products. Isn't that what the labeling law (that was passed) is all about...how can they get away with sending out answers like this!! GRRRRRRR

Hello Jessica:

Thanks for your e-mail about Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks.

Due to many factors, we have not been able to respond to your concern regarding

Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks as promptly as we would wish. Please

accept our apologies.

We rely on outside suppliers for the flavorings used in our products. It is an

industry-wide practice to manufacture a variety of products in same plant or on

shared equipment. The Food & Drug Adminstration requires all food manufacturers

and ingredient suppliers to follow careful guidelines, called Good Manufacturing

Practices, for cleaning equipment. Despite these practices we are unable to

guarantee that a small amount of this ingredient is not present in the finished

product. No allergen-free lists are available due to the extensive product line

and number of ingredient suppliers.

We update allergen information on a regular basis and would not want consumers

to have incorrect or outdated info.

We hope this information is helpful. Your interest in our products is

appreciated.

Hello Amy:

Thanks for your OatMail about Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks.

We understand that individuals sensitive to gluten cannot digest even trace amounts of gluten.  Since so many of our products contain grain ingredients and many products are made in the same facility, we cannot guarantee that any particular product is entirely free of gluten.  Although we would like to help you find products that meet your special dietary needs, we are not able to recommend any of our products.

We hope this information is helpful.

You called about Quaker Mini Rice Cakes....when I called about the normal-sized ones, they said that ALL brands are gluten-free (white cheddar, peanut butter, buttered popcorn, etc.).

Hello, B)

While I was shopping I came up to one of the products that are in the diet section.

It was "Quaker Rice Cakes" and "Quaker Corn Cakes".. As I read through the ingredients I found nothing that indicates that it is gluten-free, although it did not say so... <_<

I visited their website to ask them about the product, and only people in Canada and the States where to comment only..Can anyone who lives there ask them and tell me as soon as possible.. I wanted to ask them a couple of things:

~~ The ingredient "Chocolate liquor", where is it from??

(since my health state doesn't allow me to take any alcohol intake)

~~ Is their product gluten-free and Kosher?

I wonder if anyone could help me!

Thnx in Advance,

I'm new to the celiac stuff, but I felt I should register to comment on this one.

After calling Quaker and getting the usual "the product is not made with wheat, barley, or rye BUT it is not tested- so it might not be gluten free"...

I read this post. I was frustrated and hungry... so since someone here said she'd had no issues with the Quakes, I went ahead and ate them. (Cheddar)

Out of the 4 or 5 months that I've been gluten free... I've NEVER been so sick. In fact, this was my first real issue.

The Quakes were the only thing I've eaten different from my usual diet, so I can only assume they were the cause of this last 3 days of hell. Hopefully I can save someone the trouble.

These posts were from 2004 so maybe the ingredients have changed or it was a different product. Manufacturers do change their recipes often and im sure things have changed in the last 6 years...I eat lundbergs wild rice cakes and they are yummy and gluten free for sure;)

They have a bunch of regular sized cakes that are gluten-free. They say gluten-free above the nutritional information on the package. If it does NOT say "gluten-free", they will not guarantee it to be gluten-free-per company statement.

I want to add that this is a recent development. You may still find old stock on the shelves so check the packaging. I also want to reiterate that it only applies to the REGULAR sized rice cakes not the little snacky ones.

I eat RiceWorks Brown Rice snacks instead of Quaker Rice Cakes... they are quite expensive here (almost $4/bag!!) so I tend to only buy them when they are on sale. They are delicious and say gluten-free, vegan-friendly, whole grain, etc. right on the bag :)http://www.riceworks.ca/new_index_Canada.html Yum!

I bought some and ate them a few weeks and got sick so I'll avoid it. Where can you buy Mother's rice cakes?

The original posts are 9 years old! The last few are 3 years old! Products can change sooooo much in that amount of time. There are discussions of rice cakes that are just a few days or weeks old. Those would be more likely to be accurate.

    • If you want testing for celiac you will have to go back on gluten for 2 to 3 months for the blood test. There is a chance that your biopsy will be positive but if not then a challenge is in order. It would be a good idea to have your son tested also to keep him safe in school etc. He would need to do a challenge also if his ped agrees to test. It sounds like the wooden items your father made have great sentimental value. Perhaps you could clean them very well and then give them a sanding. That might make them safe for use.  
    • I've assumed for the last 8 years that I have gluten intolerance, or NCGS as I see it's now called. I thought that I had testing done (blood tests) that indicated I did not have celiac disease, and proceeded to follow a gluten free diet, most of the time. I've had gluten different times for different reasons, mostly because I started thinking "This can't be true. I should be able to eat my delicious home made bread!" and I suffered the consequences. Mostly pain in my neck and upper back, burning between the shoulder blades, also bloating and cravings for sugar and junk food. Each time, it took longer to recover from having gluten in my diet. The last time was over the holiday season last Christmas. Now I'm having pretty persistent symptoms, with the addition of occasional severe epigastric pain. So, off to the doctor I went to get this severe pain checked out. I found myself having an EGD a few days later, and when I woke up from my propofol induced stupor, there was the nice gastroenterologist telling me that he'd done biopsies to check for h. pylori AND CELIAC. I was floored. He didn't know I'd been gluten free. He did find mild gastritis and reflux, and no sign of hiatal hernia, which is what I really thought I had. I've looked through all my test results from the last 10 years, and can find nothing about testing for gliadin antibodies, or any of the tests mentioned here for gluten issues. I did have allergy testing done that was negative for wheat but I know that's not the same thing. I'm assuming that my biopsy will be normal, but that would be meaningless because I've been mostly gluten-free. The only times I've had gluten since January is maybe five times when I've had a couple of croutons on my salad at Olive Garden, or had an egg roll or wonton soup. If it's positive, then I know I've not been as vigilant about eliminating gluten as I should be, and I will have to stop using my wooden spoons (that my Daddy made) and my wood cutting boards (that my Daddy made) and throw away my favorite plastic spatula. My wooden cooking things were in use long ago, when I was still cooking wheat pasta, etc. So I know they are contaminated. My husband is telling me that there can't be enough gluten in those utensils to make a difference, but I've always worried about it a little bit. My Daddy can't make me any more things to replace the ones I have... I think right now that maybe the best thing for me would be to actually have a formal diagnosis, because that would make it easier for me to stick to the gluten free business. Right now it's too easy to let it slide, and to let people convince me that it's OK "just this one time". But - I'm wondering if there are any drawbacks that I am not aware of, and if anyone here knows please tell me what they are! If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? I really need to be sure because I have two children. One of them has anti thyroid antibodies (I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and that son also has alopecia areata and psoriasis. He is gluten free along with me.  
    • I found turmeric that had written on the packaging the "this item was farmed using the same machinery as wheat." Since I have not found a turmeric spice with this label or any other indicating it is gluten-free or not. I stay away ! I think people are differently with their sensitivity level ... but I will not even use a curry blend with turmeric in it, unfortunately.  
    • Don't beat yourself up about it.  The company may have changed suppliers or it may be put together in a different plant than previously. I hope they didn't CC you but if you have had some mystery glutenings at least you may have discovered the cause.
