Kraft makes a canister with just the mac and cheese powder in it. Kraft is a company that will disclose all gluten so you could just read the label and if it doesn't say wheat or barley, you're go to go. I would just make the mix as usual, maybe omiting the worchestershire sauce(EDIT: for flavor reasons) and then sprinkle plenty of the cheese on and mix it when it comes out of the oven warm.

Maybe someone can recommend/ confirm a gluten-free cheese powder.

I buy the whole box of Mac & Cheese and give the noodles away and use the cheese. I was hesitant to do this, but many people on this board said they have never gotten sick doing this, and neither has my son. You can buy the Mac & Cheese cheap at Costco or Walmart.

Amanda, the only place I've ever seen it is at super WalMart. The one in Ephrata definitely carries it and I've never seen them run out. I buy them 15 at a time because I rarely get out that way and Tori likes cheese on EVERYTHING! They have it in a weird aisle (can't remember which one, but it makes little sense) so you may have to ask for help finding it. Anyway, if you don't ever get out this way, I can pick some up for you. I'm sure I'll be making more than one trip out to HersheyPark this summer. I'm out that way quite a bit if you want to meet me somewhere since you work in Hershey.

We use the cheese packets out of the Kraft mac and cheese. I bet if you modified a regular chex mix recipe like this one you could sub the cheese powder in. It would probably work pretty well.

Let us know if you try it and how it turns out. :)

Thanks for the link, I had no idea there were that many variations of chex mix treats.

Yeah . . . I was thinking about the Kraft blue canister of cheese as well. The ingredients are the same as the box of mac & cheese - cheese packet except that two of the ingredients (farther down on the list) are in a different order so apparently, there is a slight difference.

I did want to mention that after you open the canister, you are suppose to refrigerate the unused portion. With the box, you always use the whole packet so it doesn't have that info. So, if you use the Kraft powdered cheese, you may want to refrigerate your chex mix. Or perhaps only sprinkle it on the portion that you are sitting down to eat.

I have found the Kraft blue canister at Wal-Mart . . . just a regular Wal-Mart not a super Wal-Mart. It's located next to the parmesean cheese. It's smaller than the parmesean canister, blue, and would hold about three envelopes worth of cheese from the mac&cheese boxes.

Wow, I never noticed that I said to refrigerate after opening. I never have and I've never had a problem. I guess I'll start now though and be thankful we've never had a problem.

Angie, after your post, I started doubting myself so I had to go look at one of my little blue canisters and it says . . . For best quality, refrigerate after opening. So it sounds more like a humidity/clumping issue rather than a spoilage issue.

I've seen the Kraft cheese stuff near the microwave popcorn.

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
