Gluten Free @ Walmart Super Center
0

11 posts in this topic

I know there are various threads about Walmart, but none that I found are fairly recent and I wanted to share my excitement of going to the Walmart Super Center and discovering that most Walmart Value Brand products have GLUTEN FREE written in a fairly large font on the label. I was amazed to find both gluten-free ketchup for 98 cents when I had been paying $3.99 for a different brand at the grocery store and gluten-free soy sauce for $1.48 for a larger bottle than the Tamari soy sauce that I had been buying for $5.99 at the regular grocery store. Now if they carried gluten-free pasta than I'd have a heart attack right there in the store, but as is I'm thrilled. Does anyone know if there's actually a list of all the gluten-free items at Walmart or do I just need to continue to explore the grocery section at Walmart?

The WalMart by me carries DeBoles pasta -- it is Gluten Free (Rice Spaghetti). I use to buy this pasta when I first went gluten free but after trying some other pastas I don't buy it anymore. It is about (or was) $1.50 it does fall apart so its like eating spaghetti with little parts of pasta.

As far as I know WalMart does not have a list of their gluten free items. Anything that is Great Value though will say on the backside GLUTEN FREE in bold if it is. They do note on their items "made in a facility that also processed ____" (wheat, soy, etc), so that is nice.

I hope they start to carry mixes and frozen meals that are gluten free (they do carry Amy's but I have had problems with it).

Happy Shopping

I am surprised to read about Great Value being Gluten-free. I bought some Gluten-free rice lol...from there about 6 months ago. I quit shopping there after waiting in line so long that my ds took a chomp out of some bananas with the peelings! (4 little teethmarks) when the cashier weighed them. I am upset every time I go there...last time I couldn't find any soy yogurt or milk.

I do appreciate the labeling that tells "Processed in a facilty that handles ____."

If ds outgrows his peanut allergy it may be a possibility...then again I doubt my sanity can handle the madness.

Both Wal-marts I go to (Winston-Salem and Mt. Airy, NC) carry basic DeBoles pasta- elbow macaroni, spirals and spaghetti. I'm not crazy about DeBoles, but it takes only takes 1/2 hour to get to Wal-mart and at least an hour to Whole Foods for my Tinkyada. :rolleyes: They both also carry Gluten Free Pantry muffin mix and brownie mix- which I'm thrilled with.

I hope they continue adding more gluten-free specialty options!!!

I am so jealous.... I wish mine carried Gluten Free Pantry mixes <_<

Wonder why/how your store started to carry the brand -- and how do I get mine :unsure:

Is it just down the baking row??

Thanks

Yup. They're in with all the other baking mixes. I think they've carried them for longer than I realized. It was only after I read here that some Wal-marts carry GFP mixes, that I purposefully looked for them. And there they were! One of the Wal-marts I go to also carries soy flour (which I don't use) and Hodgeson Mills Flax Meal- which I use frequently. It's much cheaper than the brand I used to buy at Whole Foods.

The GFP muffin and brownie mixes are only $2.99 at Wal-mart here.

Wal-mart's also the second-cheapest place I've found to buy yeast. Only about $4.75 for the little jar, instead of 6.99 at my regular grocery store. The absolute cheapest place I've found to buy yeast is Sam's Club- $4.50 for 1/2 pound. I keep it sealed in the fridge and it has kept fine.

(I am on a constant hunt to find ingredients at the best price possible. :P )

Our Super Wal-Mart carries DeBoles as well...and also the Gluten Free Pantry brownies. I've been getting them for awhile now...they are pretty decent. I have also become a loyal Great Value brand supporter b/c of the specific "gluten free" labeling. I figure if they're going to that trouble, I will buy their products ;)

Just this past week, I saw some "re-shelfing" going on in the cookie/cracker aisle and it looked like they were adding a bunch of Pamela's gluten-free cookies and Nut Thins crackers, etc. Kind of like how other grocery stores put the organic stuff at the ends of the aisles. I'm super excited to go back next week and see what they've added.

Oh and I wanted to comment on the gluten free labeling with the Great Value brand. Sometimes, even though something's ingredients are gluten free, they won't write "gluten free" on the label if it's been processed in a facility that also processes wheat. I suppose that's a good thing, but I have come to overlook that since my own kitchen processes wheat on a daily basis ;) So when I don't see that "gluten free" on the label, it makes me second guess myself on the label reading. Anyone else have this issue?

Ah, Walmart, my first true love:) When I recently learned I had to go Gluten-free I was so relieved that Walmart is one of the few places that provides gluten info. for every item in their brand. For a beginner especially, it's helped me learn which types of food items may likely contain gluten and which ones are naturally gluten-free.

A good idea for a newbie-- go to Walmart on a slow day (unless you just like the obscene crowds:), during normal business hours, and start calling the 800 numbers on different products as you're shopping. It's a great way to learn what you can buy and what you can't. For example, yesterday I called Hidden Valley and found out that every dressing and dip, powder mix or bottle, is gluten-free except 3 (crushed garlic caesar, fat-free bacon and french, and fat-gree original ranch with bacon). Also, I was tickled pink to find that Nature Valley's Nut and Fruit Trail Mix bars are gluten-free! So are the peanut nut bars. And La Choy Teriyaki sauce has saved me from the nut house! I love teriyaki sauce, and their soy and teriyaki is gluten-free!

Walmart's been open about the fact that they are not going to do online grocery shopping, but maybe one day....

I knew the nut bars from Nature Valley were gluten-free, but I don't see the Fruit Trail Mix being gluten free. The ones they have listed on Amazon have oats and malt extract listed as ingredients. Am I looking at the wrong bars? I would love to find another mainstream bar to eat.

I totally have that trouble. I, too, think it's probably a good thing that they warn us about any ounce of cc possibility, but how much do we take that chance anyway on products that don't have the cc warning on their label? In a way the label confirms what we know we don't know.

But speaking as someone who was once a very harsh Wal-Mart critic, I just love them to pieces for doing this. I LOVE being able to eat the GV cheese dip with salsa. I'm a total Wal-Mart fan now. I can spend hours going up and down their aisles looking for more GV gluten-free labeled products and totally enjoy myself.

    • Hello again i heard somewhere that if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease after all the tests have been done you are entitled to a prescription of food containing gluten free food. I am in the uk but i thought this had been recently discontinued? Anyone help.
    • Hello thankyou its always great to know that other people are going through things the same time. Yes my endoscopy is friday coming at 8.15am, been through the procedure before for diagnosing a hernia so that side of things are ok, just not sure if i needed the biopsy at first being the blood test confirmed  positive but i know now that i do need it not just for me but also for my 11 year old daughter who could also be celiac later and it would be better for her to know 100% mum is celiac.
    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Hey all so ever since about a week ago I felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant, followed by a minor hotflash and it hurts to press on my right side. I'm extremely worried because I was admitted to the ER last night, blood came back fine, xray fine and ultrasound fine. What prompted me to enter the ER was the fact that now my breathing is affected..   SYMPTOMS SO FAR: Sharp Pain Touching My Right Side Minor weakness , no fever. Mucus in stools? (when i wipe its a yellow on the toilet paper sorry for tmi) Right shoulder soreness Mucus in jugular? Or lung!? The "pipe" you can feel on your neck going up to your head, somewhat warm to the touch. Aches to touch. Happens mostly at night. Began last night and returned tonight. Unusually smelly breath. Awful Constipation, when I CAN go barely anything comes out as its flaky. Slight Pain in right leg, comes and goes. Very active stomach, gurgling can be heard from as high up as my chest. Slight stomach pain relief when massaging. I'm very worried people I'm petrified of surgery and I don't want to die.. But I don't understand why everything would come clean if im experiecing these symptoms?   Anyways
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
