I have been eating Bob Evan's Mashed Potatoes thinking nothing of it because on the allergy list it does not say anything about wheat. It has in bold....

allergens: milk

Well, I was sick and couldn't figure this out. So I decided to check everything in the house that I had eaten to find out what was causing it.

Lo and behold the Bob Evan's mashed potatoes had in their ingredient list in regular (blending with the others) list wheat.

WHY DID THEY NOT PUT THAT IN THE ALLERGEN AREA THEN?!? Grrrrr. It was my fault for not checking the ingredients but me being so trusting figured they would play it safe since the milk was in the allergen list and trusted them to put wheat there too.

Lesson Learned: Even if it is not in the allergen list, check ingredients.

Two thumbs down for Bob Evan's not posting that with the allergens however. Never again.

Packaged foods are the same way, the manufactorer is allowed to list the ingredient "buried" in the ingredient list, or in an allergen statement at the end, their choice. Always read carefully!

Oops... I don't eat at the restaurant. I mean the mashed potato boxes you get at the grocery store by Bob Evans. They are in the fridge sections.

Stay away from them. Wheat is in them.

But that is very interesting that they were so rude to you! Because I have had a similar experience elsewhere. Honestly, ignorance is not always bliss.

Does anyone know if their mashed potatoes still contain wheat (refridgerator)? My girls came home on Monday from their other home and haven't felt right since. My youngest asked about the Bob Evans and I can't find anything else on-line.

The company Bob Evans, seems to have become enlightened since these posts were written. I called them and asked about their mashed potatoe products that are sold in supermarkets. They told me that their original, cheddar and Texas are gluten free. The sour cream and chives variety are NOT gluten free. They added that their bacon, all sausage (except the beer brat), ham cubes, ham steaks and Texas chili are also gluten free. These are supermarket products. I did not ask about what is sold in restaurants. I did suggest to them that their web site should contain a list of gluten free products so that you wouldn't have to call.

You are very kind to provide an update, but this original thread is 5 years old and the original poster may not see it. Just so you know! :) Cheers, IH

    • So I have one pesky symptom that in the last few years has cropped up and never gone away. Lack of motivation to do some very basic things. So basic it's embarrassing to talk about. I barely manage to do a lot of adult tasks these days. It's a real stretch. It's like something is blocking me. Anyways, so I'm talking to my psych and she suggests adderal for it as we've tried lots of different avenues for this issue and none have helped. My bipolar is totally under control, for an entire year so far. My anxiety is ok with a script. It'll be even better once I get one major thing that I won't get into here taken care of. But I'm not the super motivated, extremely hard working person I used to be. It really changed basically when I got sick about 9 years ago. So, does anyone else take adderal? I've got the pills next to me but worried to take them. Not sure why. Any help, advice, reassurance is welcome.
    • Yeah I need someone to attend with me, I had someone else but they canceled on me. The hotel room is booked from the 16th-20th of August. I can pick up from the airport, greyhound, or train station and drop off if need be, room is booked from the 16th technically a day before the convention so you have time for sightseeing. Room is a double queen and you get your own bed. It is a anime convention with many Japanese guest this year, I will provide snacks, meals, etc with the room fee and I will accept paypal, credit card, or cash. Meals will be made decided on after talking with whoever is rooming with a diet build around what you can eat. The room will be gluten, corn, dairy, and peanut free. I do bring a chef kit with me including griddle, steamer, rice cooker, etc.
    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
