Rosarita "traditional" Refried Beans

Recommended Posts

Hi and thanks in advance for the help.

My 5 year old was DX with celiac disease in Nov. and has been gluten-free ever since. He recently came down with diarrhea, and I'm trying to find out where it came from.

I read the thread on Rosarita Veg refried beans, but how about Rosarita traditional refried beans. I called Conagra, and I'm leaning towards them being gluten-free. My son being younger has a harder time IDing what might be bugging him. Has anyone had traditional refried beans with luck or with problems.

ConAgra will email you back with a CYA response, but they will clearly label any gluten containing ingredients. :)

I emailed them a while back (not about that product, but here's they're general statement):

"We do not have a gluten free list of our products available at this time.

The flour used in our products is often wheat flour and should be avoided

by individuals with gluten sensitivities. The modified food starch used

in our products is corn or potato starch unless otherwise stated on the

ingredient label. We always advise consumers who may have sensitivities

to recheck the ingredient list on each package. Products are oftentimes

reformulated and the ingredients may change. If you have a question

regarding a specific ingredient in a specific product, please let us know.

We would be happy to contact the supplier to determine if it contains an

ingredient of concern.

We appreciate the time you have taken to contact us and your interest in

our products. We hope this information is helpful in selecting our fine

products in the future."

Just read the indgredients and if nothing fishy is listed then it is fine. They will clearly label any gluten containing ingredients.

I usually eat LaPreferida refried beans with Chorizo in a pinch. There is no wheat in those and I have not had a problem. Usually I make my own though, with a little salt and a slice of onion. I know it takes a long time, so let the beans soak in water over night with the salt and onion and then boil them for about 1 1/2 hrs. Afterwards, get a frying pan with just enough oil oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Use a soup ladel and drain most of the water out and scoop into the frying pan and mash with a potato masher.

I've used Ortega refried beans, Old El Paso Traditional refried beans and Bearitos refried beans all with no problems.

    • Posterboy, thank you for your response!    Regarding magnesium, do you think relying on food sources like fruits, bananas in particular, is not enough? Just out of curiosity, when you started taking Magnesiums Citrate supplements, did you already consume enough fruits?
    • I fix meal packs in a food prep kit I got online called a jax pack I can fix enough for 1-3 days depending on which pack I fill. I find fixing full on meals in advance...think something that looks great bento style and smells amazing to make others jealous and make it look pretty so you can smile when you pull it out and brag about it.....I had to go the ego route with it sometimes to comfort myself. This allows me to go out and eat sometimes with others. I learned to cook and offer to cook for others...perhaps you can practice and amaze your friends by fixing up some gluten-free dish like crock pot roast, or chicken shred it and have a nacho party? Think of something easy, naturally gluten-free and can bring everyone together and amaze them with your cooking skills. 

      I have comprehensive list of gluten free foods, while we do normally suggest a whole foods only diet, there are options now days for instant meals, and all those standard kids quick foods like hot pockets, cheese sticks, nuggets, tots, corn dogs, etc now from other companies so you can also look the part and not feel that different.

      You are indeed very lucky to have medical services...I have not been able to see a actual doctor since last fall when I lost insurance....I have some friends who are doctors who help out and a chiropractor that will work with me but I can not get blood or labs done.....imagine having to trouble shoot everything and go hit and miss all the time.....

    • I don't think they currently do medically approved Celiac testing ( last I heard). http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Thanks so much for the tips! I told my mom them and she thought they were pretty clever. And I never realized how lucky I was to have medical help. I’ll be much more careful with personal information. I was going to delete the post in case it had too much info but i can’t unless you delete your reply. It’s ok though. Thank you!
    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
