Pickles?

I know that kraft has a gluten free pickle but I can't find them anywhere. The only pickles I can find are bick and valasic(I don't think I spelled that correctly). I was wondering if either of these are gluten free. I am really craving them lately. I read that Alymer pickles and coronation brand are gluten free but I haven't came across them. I live in a small town and we have a Sobey's and Extra foods neither of which carry them.

You must be from Canada. Those are the only two that I have seen also. I've been craving them too, but I don't know if either are gluten-free. Good question.

Pickles are generally gluten-free.

Vlasic is definitely gluten-free. :)

The last time l ate Bicks pickles l had a reaction and l just tried some of their Bread and Butter pickles and some of their beets with my supper and had a reaction(diarrhea) again. I think l will steer clear for a while and try again in a week or so just to see if it was them for sure. The rest of my meal consisted of bar-b-q cooked chicken breast with just salt and pepper, spinach and boiled potatoes. I had jello for dessert so l don't see the rest of the meal being the culprit.

Bick's is a Canadian brand that has been owned since at least 2005 by Smucker's. Smucker's has a policy that they will clearly disclose any gluten in their products. I would expect that by now the labelling for Bick's complies with that policy.

Prior to the takeover, Bick's was part of Robin Hood Multifoods. Smucker's bought them, and then sold off most of the assets related to the flour-milling business, leaving them with Bick's. My brother-in-law worked in the finance department at RH for many years, before leaving due to the buy-out.

As mentioned, pickles are very rarely a problem. The old myth about vinegar being a source of gluten may be factor in people worrying needlessly.

I'm coming to this thread just a lil late, hehe... I don't believe Bicks makes anything that they call Bread and Butter pickles. Did you mean their Yum Yum pickles? They finally have a website, btw, bicks.ca, so I went there and checked.

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
