Frozen Veggies?

Hello all,

still being new to all of this, I was at the grocery store today and didn't think to ask if it is okay to buy any frozen veggies?(plain nothing on them) would they be manufactured in same places as wheat or anything? Also is buying any kind of rice okay? Or are some rices manufactured in same places as wheat? I just want to make sure I am not contaminating myself! Thanks

Rachel

You'd have to contact the individual manufacturers to determine whether or not foods are produced in facilities with gluten-containing foods or not. Of course, there's risk with most regular foods you eat that there is contamination (for example, FritoLays)....most companies will warn you of contamination, not necessarily because it's likely, but just in case you do get contaminated, they can't be blamed for not warning you. I have whatever rice is there and don't eat frozen veggies.....I'm not much of a vegetable person to begin with. Sorry I can't be of more assistance, but I'm not sure about the details with the rice manufacturing

There was a "rumor" about a company that used wheat in the fortification added to its rice, but I've never seen the source. I've not heard of any company confirm the use of wheat in any manner in rice, but when in doubt, do call the company. (Lundberg Farms says that theirs is gluten-free, I know that much, but they are often pricey.)

okay thanks, I just wasn't sure if I should even bother calling companies that distribute frozen veggies, if there is no contamination risk. Also, does anyone know if butterball deli meat is gluten free? I called and their business hours are mon-fri, I swore I read they were, and I ate some today, and didn't feel so well after consuming it

Oh, shoot, this is really frustrating.....I have an Oscar Mayer list of gluten-free foods, but I haven't been able to get into my aol for days.......I get e-mail from aol.com, but I can't get stuff from "my filing cabinet" or my favorites........I know I have their whole list, but I freeze up whenever I click on it--I'll get this straightened up in a few days, but I wish I could provide that list.........

Oscar Mayer is a division of Kraft, though, so they should follow the same labeling procedures....therefore, you should be able to find out by looking on the package. They have many gluten-free products, but you should read the labels..........if I get the list, I'll post it....

I don't know if you want to rely on my memory for this one :-D but I called Butterball while on a business trip once (since that's the brand of turkey I picked up to cook with that night), and they said that they always label wheat - the way Kraft does.

Thanks so much, hopefully the butterball was okay, I can't get ahold of any manufactures that I wanted to check on today, because of the holiday. I have had HORRIBLE luck with email, I have emailed several companies like horizon organic, and the company that makes the dish soap my mom uses, and others, and no reply in over a week!

Yeah......all the companies say that they're going to reply in 2-3 business days -- when I went on that e-mail spree I got some replies in that time, but I got one just a few days ago (that's like..........2 weeks later or something)......they take longer than they say they do.

Most companies aren't very good at e-mail, i find calling is much more effective

It's more effective if you need a quick answer, but I find that it's sometimes easiest to pull up a few websites and shoot out a standard e-mail to everyone -- depends on if I'm just asking generally or wanting a direct, quick answer

    • 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!
