Kroger Cheese

Can anyone tell me if Kroger Mild Cheddar cheese is gluten-free? I looked on delphiforums, but it wasn't listed. The ingredients look ok (I think), but I think I ingested gluten this weekend, and am trying to figure out the source. The cheese is all I can think of. ?? (I confess - I'm a newbie). :o

Look on the back of the package for a toll free consumer services phone number. Give them a call and ask them. They may even be able to supply you with a list of products that are gluten free. I know that in general Kroger stores are gluten aware...that is, they seem to have a growing selection of gluten free items.

I've been intending on calling Kroger myself, too. I shop there often and it would be nice to feel safe buying store brand things instead of name brand.

If I make the call before you, I'll post....

Basically, I have yet to find a hard block cheese like cheddar that isn't gluten-free. I don't even call about them any more. Yes, the Kroger cheese is gluten-free.

Kroger does not have a gluten-free list but they are VERY good when you call about specific items. Some people grouch about them not having a list, but I think it makes sense. The reason they don't have a list is because ingredients change. Something that's gluten-free today might not be tomorrow.

Hmmm....well, I guess the reaction wasn't from the cheese. :blink: Maybe I just got some crumbs that I wasn't aware of then. Glad to hear the cheese is gluten-free!! Thanks for the post!

I use the Kroger brands cheeses (both shredded and block) and I have not had any problems. I believe I called months ago about it. They have a great dieticians line to call in and get help with their products.

Maybe someone else in the household used a knife on bread and then on the cheese? Or you cut the cheese on the counter that had some crumbs on it? Always be careful to prepare your foods on a clean counter or do like I do and get a clean plate out to use to prepare my food on. Hope you're feeling better.

Yeah, I'm thinking I just got some crumbs. I usually am very careful, but sometimes when I get in a hurry (because of low blood sugar) I do get careless. Sometimes I'm just so darn hungry!! :rolleyes: But....I'm not complaining. I spent years not every having a single tummy growl. I welcome them now. Heehee...

Brenda

P.S. I am feeling somewhat better today. Thanks!!

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
