Amy--It's not on my gluten-free list, but all Hunt's Snack Packs are. So are Kozy Shack Rice, Tapioca, Choc, Vanilla, Banana and Flan. Do yourself a favor and check out:

http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist.pdf

It listed these items and 49 pages of other gluten-free mainstream foods. I don't go to the food store without it!

Jello Instant Pudding is safe; also, since it is a Kraft product, I read that all Kraft products will specify on the ingredients lable if a wheat product is used. I haven't checked the non-instant varieties but I know the instant mix is okay, although the buttterscotch flavor does list caramel color and doesn't state whether it is from barley or not. Will Kraft also specify foods that have barley ingredients in them or only wheat?

I don't know why Jello Instant Pudding didn't show up on my gluten-free list--it's that 49 page one--but I "googled" it and yup it is gluten-free. Don't know about the caramel color though, catfish, good point! Nothing came up on google for the butterscotch. Can't pass that new labeling law fast enough to suit me.

Just because a label will list a wheat ingredient doesn't mean it will list barley. Make sure you read the labels. I am trying to remember which kind of instant pudding I eat, but the brand slips my mind. I buy it at Wal Mart, it is a mainstream item, but I just can't think of the brand!

Even of Kraft products you need to read the labeling...they won't write in bold letters on the front of the container: DOES NOT CONTAIN WHEAT. However, flavorings are usually questionable as to being gluten-free or not and you need to call the company. With Kraft however, all flavorings and colorings are gluten-free unless they specifically write (in parens. next to it) wheat, or some other gluten-containing ingredient...in that way you should be able to tell if a product is gluten-free right from the label. At least, that's what I was told when I called about Crystal Light (drink mix) a week ago. By the way, it is gluten-free.

P.S. the barley is a good point...I'm not sure about it, but I believe the person said that it'll list the gluten-containing ingredient in parens next to it...then again, going by the labels isn't a good idea to begin with: labels are subject to change whenever the manufacturers feel like it -- and because it is "too expensive" to throw out printed labels, manufacturers are allowed to "run out" their labels, thereby leading us to believe that a product is gluten-free, although it may not be. Always be careful.

P.S.P.S. I have also heard that Kozy Shack is gluten-free...although I am going to stay dairy-limited until my symptoms completely go away so I haven't investigated yet. I remember eating Kozy Shack chocolate pudding before the gluten-free diet...it's delicious.... :)

Kozy Shack even lists on the package that it is gluten free. We tried some the other day, but the dairy caused a lot of my symptoms to return, so I think 6 months off dairy wasn't enough. celiac3270 you are smart to stay off dairy. I'm back to dairy free and was wondering about Jello pudding and if it possible to make it with any milk alternatives. It probably wouldn't taste the same. <_<

God bless,

Mariann

Folks the Kraft page about gluten (I don't have the exact address; you'd have to go to kraft.com and search around) says they will clearly list any gluten, not just wheat. So if it had barley, which is very rare in itself, it would say so.

Mariann,

I just made a box of the pudding with soy milk because my 6 month old cant have cows milk yet. Well it never harden. Its still liquid in my fridge. Too bad he cant use a straw yet. lol I have alot of goats milk too, after I try making it with that I will let you know how it works.

I can't use Soymilk anyhow, but it is good to know that it won't set. I don't want to use the almond milk we drink for pudding, since it does have a strong almond taste and the kids don't want the pudding to taste like almonds. I thought I might try Mocha Mix. I make a milk alternative for baking and such with it at a mix of 1/4 Mocha Mix and 3/4 water. It does have a bit of a chemical taste that you have to get used to, but once you get past that it isn't bad. :rolleyes: We use the Mocha Mix Ice Cream and I sort of figured it would taste a bit like that...

Anyone tried pudding made with rice milk??

God bless,

Mariann

I don't know about other brands, but I have found that Jello brand instant pudding (not the kind that needs to cook, I haven't tried that) will set even with plain water although it tastes a little bit flat. Also, the mix has no milk in it. I imagine almond milk would work just fine with it.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
