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,

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.

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
