My recipe for poppyseed dressing calls for French's mustard. Does anyone know if it is gluten-free? I know that Hellman's Dijonnaise is gluten-free, but it doesn't taste good in the dressing.

Hummm, thinking. If French's is a Kraft product, it will clearly list.

I use French's mustard all the time as well.....just a tip for ones using Hellmans Mayo....to make the taste alittle better i add a few drops of lemon juice .... its a really close second to regular mayo....i use this for a dipping sauce for chicken fingers....for added taste you can also add a bit of caynenne pepper a little bit of a kick to it....

MG,

Yes, I agree about adding the lemon juice to add a little zip. My question for s66 (which I think only he/she could really answer), was regarding the "its a really close second to regular mayo" part.

"...just a tip for ones using Hellmans Mayo...to make the taste alittle better i add a few drops of lemon juice...its a really close second to regular mayo...."

What's regular mayo? What's the zippy Hellmans a close second to? I don't care one way or another what it is, I'm just curious about it.

I wasn't trying to start trouble or be critical or anything like that. I've always had an interest in the way people develop preferences as a result of family influences. And then how some stick with it and others change when free of same.

Good example, there seems to be two basic family groups. Mayo families (Hellmans, Kraft, many others, mayonaise), and Salad Dressing (Miracle Whip, many others). Two distinctly different products most often referred to as mayo, although Miracle Whip is not actually technically Mayo. Mayo contains eggs.

Run out of time, late for work. Sorry.

best regards, lm

Regular mayo is raw egg, oil, vinegar or lemon juice, salt and an emulsifier like mustard optional....

anything else is something close to mayo with additives....

That's so true. You are either a mayo or a Miracle Whip person. LOL

gfp,

I'm going to have to disagree a little here. Regular mayo is somewhat ambiguous, could be whatever anyone thinks it is. "Real" mayo though, is egg, oil, vinegar or lemon juice, salt and....

p.s., We still need simplicity66 to clear up this mayo mystery!

The recipe given is how you make "real" mayo yourself. I use Hellman's, which I consider real mayo (as compared to Miracle Whip), but even Hellman's has ingredients one wouldn't use in a fresh, homemade mayo. And they do taste different.

This may be an old topic, but it is very new for me. I usually eat Heinz yellow mustard and have not had any

problems with it. I accidentally used Frenchs on my hamburger, and within 1/2 an hour, I started to react.

I have been diagnosed with Celiacs since June 2012 and have been doing great. I started to bloat up, got a headache,

dizzy, very red eyes, red spots on my thighs and severe stomach ache. I have vomited several times, not food,

but maybe blood. I have reacted to other grain alcohols which being distilled, are supposed to be safe.

I have read that Frenches yellow mustard is gluten free to 20 ppm, but the source of the vinegar is ethyl alcohol, which can come from wheat. This is the article I read: http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/Gluten-Free-Condiments/a/Gluten-Free-Mustard.htm

I know I am very sensitive, but has anyone else had issues with Frenchs mustard???

    • Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm. View the full article
    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
    • I can not add anything else, but I hope you feel better fast!    
    • Welcome!  I am so sorry that you are dealing with this.  With all your testing was active celiac disease ruled out?  Did they check for UC or Crohn's?  Flies?  I am on the West Coast.  The wind is usually too steady for any insect to hang around at the beach, but I recall getting attacked by them while visiting Mt.  Vernon.   Thank you for taking the time to share with us.  I am sure you can help someone else with PG.  You might enjoy hanging around with a group of people who have celiac disease like you!  😊 I wish you well!
