Kraft Gluten Free And Lactose Free Product List
1 1

17 posts in this topic

I was doing some research today and I came across this Kraft gluten-free and lactose free product list. I thought it was great so I thought I'd share it with you guys!

http://www.kraftcanada.com/assets/docs/KLG_all.pdf

If the above link doesn't work click on this link and scroll down to the bottom where it says: Kraft Canada has a 16-page pdf file listing all their gluten-free products (as well as lactose free and kosher)

Does this list apply to the US products as well? Also, do you know how old this list is? When I contacted Kraft, they were quite uncooperative, telling me to read the label, as all ingredients are listed. However, they never tell you the source of their natural or artificial flavors, so I usually move on down the aisle.

The reason Kraft told you that is because they have a policy of labeling ANY source of an allergen. So if a natural/artificial flavor contains wheat, it will say so in parenthesis after "natural flavor" or the like. If they hold true to their own policy, you CAN just read their labels. (But this is why they aren't so helpful on the phone.)

I'm surprised that they even had a list for Canada.......do they not follow that same labeling procedure there?

Kraft, like Tiffany said, doesn't give out a list, but they don't need to because reading the label can ensure you that the food is safe.....which is exactly what I love about their products. Flavorings, starches, etc. are gluten-free unless otherwise stated by something in parens., for example: natural flavorings (wheat)..........I think it's terrific that they do this; however, if you are still questioning a product and call them up, they'll tell you if a specific products is gluten-free.....cause I asked about Crystal Light before I knew of this policy.

The Kraft Canada list does NOT necessarily apply to the U.S. Do not use it that way.

To hthorvald,

Why in the heck would you be upset with Kraft? Kraft is like we would want every single company to be. I don't want to call companies or carry a list around. I just want to read the label. And that's what you can do with Kraft products. You don't need to ask them where their natural flavors come from, because if it doesn't say wheat, rye, barley or oats, you know it didn't come from there. By ignoring Kraft you are not supporting one the best companies around as far as labeling gluten. Kraft is exactly the opposite of "uncooperative." They are extremely cooperative.

I use many more Kraft products as well.....I feel more comfortable with that company's food cause I feel like they're more careful about gluten....now I actually look for Kraft products to get instead of the other brands.......I really appreciate what they've done for labeling.......they've adopted the labeling standards that I would dream of all manufacturers having one day.

hthorvald,

The list was updated in May 2004 but just to be careful always read ingredients. I am from Canada so

I'm not sure if this list applies in the US.

It probably doesn't apply to the US, as well--otherwise they'd have given me that list when I e-mailed them about a list. Of course, with Kraft's terrific food labelings, that doesn't bother me.....good labeling is really valuable cause a list can go out of date, sort of........

It's good to know that I can trust Kraft. I was counseled by the dietician I see not to eat any foods unless the source of the natural and artificial foods are disclosed. Since most of the Kraft packaging I've come across just said natural flavors, I assumed that they may be of a gluten derivative.

However, my understanding from recent posts is that if the natural or artificial flavors are not gluten-free, Kraft will state the source. Really cool.

I'm assuming the same is with their marshmallows. I'm not sure if gelatin is gluten-free or not, but from all the recent posts, I'm assuming that if it was, they'd list it.

Thanks for all the great comments. I really like this forum

A fair number of the salad dressings are gluten-free but not all. I remember once that involves bacon lists wheat starch. Once again, read the ingredients.

aren't they trying to pass a law that they would have to list on all labels any and all allergens?...if not we should all (everybody with any type of allergy to food products and ingredients) sign like a petition to our state or higher?...but i hope that we don't have to b/c they would be doin somethin like that right now...

That law - which requires all eight major allergens (wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, fish, shellfish, eggs, and soybeans) to be listed in plain english, and requires for definitions of what "gluten-free" means - has been passed and signed, and will change labels (and you can start to see it from some companies) but the changes are not required until 2006, and they've got 4 years to develop the gluten-free definition. It only partly addresses the gluten-free diet, however, since barley, rye, and oats do not have to be listed "in plain english". I believe, however, that - as the law removed the loophole for "natural flavors" - they may still need to be specific in that case. (It would still, it seems allow them to hide oats under avenia stevie (or however you spell its scientific name).)

Here is a link to a website describing the law. It's important to note the exceptions that will be allowed, though: "Ingredients containing or derived from major food allergens can be exempt from the labeling requirements if scientific evidence shows the ingredient lacks allergenic protein, or the ingredient does not pose a risk to human health. Moreover, any highly refined oil or any ingredient derived from a highly refined oil is exempt. For example, a highly refined oil containing an allergenic protein would not be required to list the major food allergen on the label since the allergenic properties of the ingredient should be destroyed during processing. Currently, highly refined oils, raw agricultural commodities, and alcoholic beverages are exempt from the labeling requirements."

So am I safe to assume that the "modified food starch" in Kraft dressings is not Wheat since they label wheat on their prodcuts?

Yes, I would say that the gluten free Kraft dressings are safe to consume since they would clearly label if gluten was present. I've been eating the gluten free and lactose free dressings with no problem and I am super sensitive. I have a salad almost every day and the gluten-free Kraft dressings really make my salads taste better!

    • 1. I think the pain is more diffused than on one side or the other.  2. Sacroiliac joint sounds familiar to me, from when I was doing pt? I think this was something where one side was lower than the other. She would correct it, but it wouldn't stay put for long.  3. I haven't had any scans in ages!  4. Every pair of pants I have are elastic or tie right now! I'm at my mid weight. I guess I've got fat, mid and skinny clothes, lol. I'm losing a bit of weight here and there because one of my meds causes me to have a lower appetite. 5. Are you getting any help from the chiropractor? 6. Thanks so much for this food for thought. I do so hope you find an answer to your issues asap. I hate stuff like this that is seemingly so ambiguous. Much easier to just have kidney stones and get them over with, lol.
    • Many celiacs can eat 10- 20 mg of gluten per day (10-20 ppm in one kilogram of food) without adverse effects.  That is roughly equivalent to 1/16-1/8 teaspoon flour.  More than a trace, but still a small amount.  Some of us cannot handle that amount.
    • Everything with the gluten-free certification must be below 20ppm in a lab test. THAT is much much less then a crumb. Toasters are cheap just get a new ones. If you eat whole foods only your chances are much much less of getting CCed. We normally suggest no gluten-free processed foods (dough, mixes, chips, crackers. breads etc) for the first few months only eating whole foods to boost your healing also remove dairy and oats as they can be hard to process with the initial damage (Diary requires the enzyme lactase which is produced by the tips of the villi in the intestines which are the most damaged).   To make it much easier clean our your microwave really goods, put down some paper towels in the bottom when you use it and get some nordicware microwave cook ware, a new mixing bowl. measure cup, spatula, and some basic eating and cooking utensils and you can start fixing stuff that way starting off without worry. I love steamed veggies, omelettes, etc done this way so tender and easy to digest.  I might also suggest using freezer/butcher paper for a clean prep surface starting off also makes clean up a breeze since you just trash it when done.  You can get the rest of you appliances, pots, pans and everything else changed over later. And this makes it simple to get started....PS crockpot liners are a life saver and making huge pots of stew, or roast in them from raw ingredients is super simple and you can eat on it for days.
    • Hi again Victoria  - I've just read your other comment about your insides feeling like they might slip out!  Poor you!  But yes - I can identify with that.  I actually get that exact feeling when I get a UTI - are you sure you haven't got a UTI?  x
    • Third trimester pain is a good way of describing it!  I know someone with another gastrointestinal complaint - diverticulitis - which causes this sensation too - so it could purely be down to our gut. What I would say is what side is you pain on? Is it pretty diffuse or is it on the left or right side?  For me, it was the left side, rather as if when I was pregnant a baby was standing on my hip/groin area.  As it was on the left a sigmoidscopy was indicated to make doubly sure nothing else was going on, after an internal pelvic scan u/s ruled out other problems. (I note you have had a hysterectomy but have you had any of the above scans recently? - might be worth doing to give you peace of mind). If you want to find out if it is your sacroiliac joint causing you problems, a physio or chiropractor will be able to put their finger on it (literally).  My left sacroiliac joint is very tender now but before I was shown where the joint actually was, I wouldn't have known  otherwise as the pain refers in a great part to my groin.   I nearly shot through the roof when my chiropractor touched the sacroiliac area.   The cure for that is rest and the right type of exercise, not carrying heavy loads, wearing comfortable supportive shoes etc. Another thing that pelvic pain can be caused by is pelvic congestion.   I'm not sure if this would affect someone who has had a hysterectomy. One radiographer told me I had a lot of veins (like internal varicose veins) which might be causing me pain, although when the gynaecologist looked at me she said they were normal.   Personally, I think in my case it is a mix of sacroiliac issues, bloating and possibly pelvic congestion!  A bit of everything in the mix! One thing I cannot do any more is wear tight waistbands or other tight clothes.  For whatever reason this makes things so much worse.  If you are wearing tight waistbands, definitely give that a miss. Sorry - this is a bit of a ramble, but it might throw some light on your situation.
