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."

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!

    • Hi everyone! I'm obviously new to the forums, but I'm also new to the idea of celiac/gluten free/etc.  Lemme give you the Cliff Notes version of my journey: 1992: I'm diagnosed with CFS/ME. It sucks and I'm tired and sick all the time. 2014: I'm still tired and sick all the time, so I decide to become a vegetarian. Maybe that'll help, right? I began getting deathly ill when I ate. Vomiting and diarrhea, everything I eat seems to be a problem.  I go to a doctor who runs a million tests. Nothing turns up. In among those tests is a celiac panel which has this result: no antibody detected and no serological evidence of celiac disease. No cause is ever found. I continue to suffer. Later in 2014: I notice that my stomach issues are triggered every time I eat a raw vegetable. I can eat bread or pasta no problem. Fake chicken? Great. Have a salad? I'm dying. This is a problem, as I'm a vegetarian. I nix the fresh veggies and continue to live my life. 2015: I'm diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I realize that the problem with vegetables is worse than I thought. I can no longer eat cooked spinach, can't have lettuce on my sandwich, and stealing a single slice of cucumber set my stomach on edge for days. I'm becoming hypersensitive to veggies in food and protecting myself from their evil influence; my stomach thanks me. 2017: After a relative peaceful period, the stomach issues are back, worse. So I go to a new doctor (I've moved) and he recommends a colonoscopy and EGD (no labs). This was done yesterday. The full results will of course have to wait for the biopsies to be examined, but apparently there is scalloping "through the entire duodenum".  Doc told my partner that he believes I have celiac and discharged me with orders to go gluten free. Now I'm sitting here alternately considering drinking alone in the dark and throwing things--I guess I'm wavering between the stages of depression and anger on my trip through grief for my lost favorite foods. But here's where the confusion comes in...everything I'm seeing says that I should give up bread and eat more veggies, but veggies make me sick. Does anyone else have this reaction to vegetables? Meanwhile I'm thinking back to the labs done in 2014 and wondering if its possible to have a negative test and still be positive for celiac? Also, what actually happens if you DON'T go gluten free?
    • Hi Guys, I just thought of giving update on my case. I finally got my EGD done and unfortunately, the conclusion is I have Celiac. There was Villus atrophy and presence of Inflammatory Cells, looks like the atrophy of Villi isn't that worse yet, but of course, I need to get on strict gluten free diet right away. I am planning to see a Dietitian next week to have a healthy gluten free diet plan. Any suggestions from the experts in here are most welcome and appreciated. Thanks  
    • Hi this is my first time commenting but I just had to. I too get chest tightness. I have had it flare up several times with no answers. I was diagnosed with celiac about 6 months ago and am pretty confident this is a glutening symptom for me. Last month it was so bad... Started with random chest pains for a couple days then chest tightness that last for two weeks. I ended up going to the emergency room ( again) because I started worrying about my heart. Felt like my bra was so tight, bloated belly, trapped gas like pain in chest, swollen lump under sternum and no relief. EKG, chest xray and blood tests showed heart was fine. GI said he didn't think it was GI related. I give up on doctors. I've had this before and I'm sure I will again. It's like inflammation in there or something but it makes you anxious and uncomfortable. I truly hope you are okay and I hope it will give you some comfort to know you aren't the only one with this.
    • While I agree that getting more sleep when ill or stressed is a must, many people can easily get by on 6 hours of sleep a night.  Not everyone needs 8 hours of sleep.  Sleep needs, like the gluten-free diet, is different for everyone.  Nursing school can be very tough so it may be hard to get 8 hours every night.  I think the most important thing is to make sure no gluten is getting into your diet at all so you feel well and can manage your schedule better.  Good luck to you!
