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

RE: Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks , REF.# 4993219A

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to have incorrect or outdated info.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.

RE: Quaker Quakes Crispy Mini's Rice Snacks , REF.# 5032837A

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.

    • Former lifeguard and competitive swimmer here. There could be some potential issues, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Here's why I think that: 1. The water volume in a standard 25m pool is enormous (hundreds of thousands of liters). Assuming there are people swimming in the pool, any hot spots are likely to get dissipated pretty fast, so you'd have to swallow a lot of water to get a serious gluten hit. 2. By law (at least in Canada), the water inflow and outflow rates must be such that the volume of water that makes up the pool must be replaced every 24 hours in public pools. There are always some dust bunnies, bandaids and whatnot trapped in the corners at the bottom of the pool, but the main volume you're interacting with gets replaced regularly, so no build-up. Public pools are also vacuumed on a regular basis. For cleaning agents, typically on bleach and baking soda are used in my experience. Private pools are another story and there no guarantees. 3. Most public pools prohibit food on deck due to public health regulations and/or wanting to avoid cleaning up messes. This limits potential sources of gluten to personal care products on other people's skin. Considering the volume of a pool, I'm having trouble imagining this resulting in a significant exposure, but I have also swam in packed outdoor pools that taste like sunblock, so who knows. I would definitely worry if people were eating hot dogs or shotgunning beers in the pool though (definitely a thing at backyard pool parties). 4. Pool chlorine can be either tablet based, liquid based or gas based depending on the pool. Either way, it is bleach-based (sometimes literal bleach gets dumped in smaller volume bodies like hot tubs when the chlorine is off). The pool I worked at, which was newer used liquid injection, and I would imagine this is true of most newer facilities (gas is undesirable as it can leak and kill people because it is odourless - some older pools still have this set-up though). Tablets are more common in backyard pools, and it's possible that these might contain gluten in some form (I have no idea and have never checked).  For reference, the concentration of chlorine in a swimming pool should be between 0.5-5 ppm, depending on the pool temperature and your region (lower for colder pools, higher for hot tubs).  So, I guess my opinion would be that a public pool is most likely pretty safe from a gluten perspective. Chlorine (or rather, the volatile gases resulting from the reaction of chlorine with biological waste in the pool) is an irritant though - occupational asthma rates in lifeguards and swimmers is quite high. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. My dad cannot swim anymore because he becomes ill for a week with severe upper respiratory symptoms (open water swimming is ok). I get similar, but less severe symptoms (part of the reason I don't swim anymore, sadly). Not sure what symptoms you experienced, but something to consider. http://www.ncceh.ca/documents/practice-scenario/pool-chlorination-and-closure-guidelines
    • I look back at photos from a few years ago now and can see the inflammation in my face. I spent decades with my body fighting constantly without my really being aware. Freaked me out when I realised! Few things to think about: If up to 1% of pop are celiac, at much as 6% could be NCGS - further reading here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117969-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-a-resource/ NCGS can present in the same varied ways as celiac - Not just or even primarily gastro related. I get back pain, chest pain, skin problems, eyesight problems, anxiety, depression, balance issues, nerve tremors and twitches etc. etc Try to treat these next months as a special case. Dial your diet back and eat really basic and simple. I lived on omelettes filled with veggies, huge green salads with olive oil and cider vinegar as dressing and a very simple evening meal with maybe some meat and rice. I ate as little processed foods as I possibly could. So try and avoid sauces, anything in a box really.  Your aiming to help your body heal and to reduce the amount of ingredients going in to the basic safest foods. Eat clean and healthy and avoid any possible gluten source. Spend a bit of time learning about hidden sources of gluten too. This thread will help:  https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/   Final point. You may like me eventually have to live life without gluten and without the comfort of a diagnosis that says precisely why. This is not always easy, but what you learn about your body in the next 3 months of this trial could help you to do this. Keep the diary, note your reactions and hopefully when you see the Rheum in 3 months you'll have conducted your own science experiment and have the data you need to make a good decision. Best of luck Matt  
    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • Hey, I am learning also...make sure you are taking a good multi-vitamin...gluten-free of course.  I have had a few "charlie horse" pains in my thighs and am taking an extra B12 tablet...If you have an ALDI grocery store nearby they have lots of gluten-free items snacks and frozen.  Vitamins will help...you are not getting enough nutrients with what you are eating.
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
