Angie,

Wish Bone is a Unilever company. They are a company that will clearly list any gluten on the label. Since there is none listed, it looks to be just fine.

Well, I'd say no way just based on the caramel coloring, which can be made from a gluten source. They also don't say what the dehydrates are of/from. I'm basically suspicious of all such pre-made items.

The way I see it though, now that you know the basic ingredients, you could make your own so you'd know it's safe :)

While it's possible for caramel coloring to be made from a gluten source, it would have to be listed on the label if that was the case. The vast majority of caramel coloring is not made from wheat, anyway--and again--if it were, it would, by law, have to listed as such. :)

Unilever is a company that is reliable in their listing of gluten, if present.

Of course, it's always possible for someone to react to any food or additive--but it wouldn't be from gluten in this case.

RiceGuy,

Caramel coloring, while it can be wheat derived, is very rarely wheat derived.

Also, because of the 2006 FDA food labeling law, it would be REQUIRED to list it it were wheat.

Plus, as Patti mentioned, it is from a company that takes it a step further and will list all gluten.

Please be cautious of information that you share, especially to new people, who are overwhelmed and learning!

Electra-yes, it is safe, I use it often!

Wooooooooohoooooooooooooo I'm so excited I bought some Glutan Free rice pasta to make my favorite pasta salad with and Wish Bone is my all time favorite Italian dressing, so I'm psyched. Now the cheese is another story. Here are the ingredients. Now the corn starch and anti caking ingredients are what I'm hesitant about.

Pasteurized Milk

Cheese Culture

Salt

Enzymes

Annato (Vegetable Color)

Potato Starch

Corn Starch

Calcium Sulfate (added to prevent caking)

Natamycin (A Natural Mold Inhibitor)

Yay or Nay?

Ok so the new law is that everything that has any kind of Gluten product in it needs to list it as "Wheat" in the label? I read the label to corn taco shells the other night and wasn't sure if the corn starch or anything like that were unsafe. There was no "Wheat" listed!!

not listing wheat however, does not mean that it is gluten free. there are some companies that will list if it contains gluten clearly on the label but do not rely on something saying wheat free to be gluten free.

With the new labeling laws in the US, any _wheat_ is required to be listed. HOWEVER, rye, barley, and oat are _not_ required by law to be listed :huh: . Unilever and Kraft WILL list rye, barley or oat, because they have chosen to give us the information we need (good manufacturer! :D ). Other manufacturers will not necessarily list these. so, if the "natural flavors" on another manufacturer include barley malt, they won't necessarily tell you, :ph34r: that's why it's a red flag ingredient. Because your salad dressing is from a celiac-friendly manufacturer, it's safe unless it specifically lists one of the no-no grains.

Don't want to confuse, but don't want you messing up because the nice manufacturors spoiled you!

Aha see that's what I was afraid of. Is there a list of "safe" manufacturers who we can trust to list the wheats and glutens as such? If so can someone direct me to it please ;-)!!

Miss Roben's makes a mix that you then bake yourself.

Corn starch is safe. Please look at the lists on celiac.com so that you can learn about some of the safe ingredients.All companies will list wheat.

Kraft and Unilever are two companies that always list any gluten source. McCormick is also good about it. There are more, though.

OK folks. I acknowledge that Unilever says they will list when something contains wheat. I guess what bothers me is when a package doesn't clearly state gluten-free on the label. I mean, sure THEY may not have added wheat/gluten, but suppose one of the ingredients they use already contains gluten? Maybe I'm a bit too careful. Maybe I go overboard about it, but the phrase "better safe than sorry" comes to mind whenever I have even the slightest doubt.

Some companies provide a list of their gluten-free products, but unfortunately Wish Bone currently doesn't have one that I can find. Perhaps a letter to them would prompt them to put something on their site.

Most labels of mainstream products that are gluten free do not say they are gluten free. There are no guidelines for saying something is gluten free. Labeling laws are there for a reason, and it doesn't matter how the wheat is there, if it is there it has to be listed! In time, I'm sure that more companies will begin to do that as Celiac awareness raises, but at this time, I don't think its a problem if:

1. All companies are required to list wheat, which is the most common source of gluten

2. Certain companies go as far as to make sure that any gluten source is clearly listed, so that we can make informed decisions.

I looked on Wishbone's website b/c I had the same question and it states:

"Common ingredients that may contain gluten are rye, wheat, oats and barley, and noodles and pasta prepared with any of the previously mentioned grains. HVP, TVP, flavorings, are likely to contribute gluten as well, however, if they contain any gluten, the source would always be listed in the ingredient statements.

Since product formulations change from time to time, we do not have a printed list of products that identifies those products that contain specific allergens or gluten. The best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label. Ingredient allergens as defined by FDA: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, seafood, wheat, eggs, and milk or dairy, as well as any ingredient that may contain gluten are always listed on the label. If gluten is present, it is clearly listed in plain language on the ingredient label (i.e., wheat flour, rye, barley, oats, and malt). Malt is a barley based ingredient.

We do not publish a list of gluten-free flavors. Therefore, we suggest reading all ingredient labels carefully. As always, if you cannot determine whether the product contains the ingredient in question, we recommend that you don't use it."

This topic is more than five years old, but what was stated back then is still true: It is a Unilever brand, and Unilever will always clearly disclose any gluten.

Like Peter said it's an old topic. Wish Bone now labels their dressings gluten-free.

    • Spicely Organics lab certifies all their spices gluten-free. The turmeric and curry powder they have is safe, also Thai Kitchen Curry Paste is certified Gluten free....I like you do not trust the normal curry powders or most blends with it.
    • In 1978 Virginia Slims' magazine advertising spouted "You've Come A Long Way Baby". Well, in 2011 "WE" celiac/DH people can express those same words when talking about how far we have travelled since I was diagnosed as a brittle celiac/DH person 16 years ago. If the people with peanut allergies can become well known, so can celiac people! DID YOU KNOW: That 16 years ago gluten free foods were difficult to find, and upon finding the small frost-bitten white-gummy loaf of bread, which was even more expensive than it is today, one had to scrape it off the roof of your mouth with your tongue and chew!

    • I would be willing to bet that nothing changed in that product except the label.  A bunch of companies seemed to have decided that they need to put "May contains allergens " on the everything to be safe.  But I wouldn't buy it any longer.    
    • If you want testing for celiac you will have to go back on gluten for 2 to 3 months for the blood test. There is a chance that your biopsy will be positive but if not then a challenge is in order. It would be a good idea to have your son tested also to keep him safe in school etc. He would need to do a challenge also if his ped agrees to test. It sounds like the wooden items your father made have great sentimental value. Perhaps you could clean them very well and then give them a sanding. That might make them safe for use.  
    • I've assumed for the last 8 years that I have gluten intolerance, or NCGS as I see it's now called. I thought that I had testing done (blood tests) that indicated I did not have celiac disease, and proceeded to follow a gluten free diet, most of the time. I've had gluten different times for different reasons, mostly because I started thinking "This can't be true. I should be able to eat my delicious home made bread!" and I suffered the consequences. Mostly pain in my neck and upper back, burning between the shoulder blades, also bloating and cravings for sugar and junk food. Each time, it took longer to recover from having gluten in my diet. The last time was over the holiday season last Christmas. Now I'm having pretty persistent symptoms, with the addition of occasional severe epigastric pain. So, off to the doctor I went to get this severe pain checked out. I found myself having an EGD a few days later, and when I woke up from my propofol induced stupor, there was the nice gastroenterologist telling me that he'd done biopsies to check for h. pylori AND CELIAC. I was floored. He didn't know I'd been gluten free. He did find mild gastritis and reflux, and no sign of hiatal hernia, which is what I really thought I had. I've looked through all my test results from the last 10 years, and can find nothing about testing for gliadin antibodies, or any of the tests mentioned here for gluten issues. I did have allergy testing done that was negative for wheat but I know that's not the same thing. I'm assuming that my biopsy will be normal, but that would be meaningless because I've been mostly gluten-free. The only times I've had gluten since January is maybe five times when I've had a couple of croutons on my salad at Olive Garden, or had an egg roll or wonton soup. If it's positive, then I know I've not been as vigilant about eliminating gluten as I should be, and I will have to stop using my wooden spoons (that my Daddy made) and my wood cutting boards (that my Daddy made) and throw away my favorite plastic spatula. My wooden cooking things were in use long ago, when I was still cooking wheat pasta, etc. So I know they are contaminated. My husband is telling me that there can't be enough gluten in those utensils to make a difference, but I've always worried about it a little bit. My Daddy can't make me any more things to replace the ones I have... I think right now that maybe the best thing for me would be to actually have a formal diagnosis, because that would make it easier for me to stick to the gluten free business. Right now it's too easy to let it slide, and to let people convince me that it's OK "just this one time". But - I'm wondering if there are any drawbacks that I am not aware of, and if anyone here knows please tell me what they are! If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? I really need to be sure because I have two children. One of them has anti thyroid antibodies (I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and that son also has alopecia areata and psoriasis. He is gluten free along with me.
