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to have incorrect or outdated info.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.

    • I am wanting to make a mac and cheese recipe that calls for cheddar cheese soup.  Anyone know a substitute for this?  Campbell's has gluten :-(
    • Hey!  I also recently started a gluten free diet because of non Celiac's gluten sensitivity, and as a college student who can't really eat in the dining hall or participate in late night pizza runs, I totally understand where you're coming from. First things first: you probably aren't as much of a burden on people as you think you are. They most likely understand that this is a big transition period for you and will take time. If you are really worried about it,  just talk to them, explain your concern and try to come up with a plan. I have found that if I don't make a big deal about being gluten free, neither will anyone else. The first time or two matter of factly explain that you cannot eat gluten for medical reasons, after that, if someone offers you something you can't eat, I have found it to be best to just respond with a simple "no thanks!" As far as making sure you don't starve, nut based granola bars (such as kind bars) are your best friend. I always try to have one or two handy, especially on trips! ( I like to have savory ones, like Thai chili flavored, that way it feel more like eating real food than sweet flavored ones!) That way, if there is really nothing you can eat, you always have something. I also scoured celiac and gluten free blogs my first few weeks and figured out what fast food places have Celiac's and NCGS friendly options (Chick-fil-A is a good one, I usually get their fries and request that they fry them in their designated gluten free frier, and a side salad, Wendy's is also good, you can get any of their baked potatoes, chili, or side salad with no croutons, there are a lot of other places too, but there are my favorites) I have found that a lot of times there are things that we can eat places, but because Celiac's and especially NCGS is something that has just started to get more attention, most people, even those working at restaurants just aren't familiar with it, and most restaurants do not have a designated gluten free menu. Your smart phone and Google are also great, I am all the time in a  restaurant googling "does (restaurant's dish) have  gluten?" Usually we can eat salads, and burgers and such without buns, but it is always a good idea to just tell your waiter or the person taking your order something to the effect of " hey! I am unable to eat gluten for medical reasons, which means I can't have things made with wheat, rye , or barley, or anything that touches things made with it, I was hoping to have (dish), Which isn't made with any of these things, but was wondering if you could use clean utensils and preparing area, that way I don't get sick! Thank you!" Usually people are more than happy to help, they just don't understand your situation. As far as you feeling like less of an outcast, this transition period has been a great time for me to realize the importance of hanging out with people and enjoying their company, even if you can't fully participate. No one really cares if they are all eating pizza and you are eating a sandwich you brought on gluten free bread. People are going to express concern because they care about you and don't want you to be hungry or feel left out. Whenever someone says something like " oh will you be able to eat anything here?" Or "oh I'm sorry I'm eating (delicious gluten thing)" just not making a big deal out of it and saying something like "oh I'm good anywhere!" (Because you are with your granola bar! Also you can almost always eat salad) Or "no, you enjoy what you like!" Will make you and them feel better. For a while you will feel a little left out, and that is okay, but I have found that I am so much happier when I go on that pizza run with my friends and a granola bar, even if at first you have to fake it till you make it! Good luck! I know it isn't easy, but it does get better!💙💙
    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt
