No longer have gluten free on their packaging..... They have changed their packaging up, removed the gluten free, but the ingredients look the same. Has anyone called them on this yet?

I just bought a package from Publix last week. I saw on the back of the package is does say "gluten free" on the bottom of the back above Heating Instructions. However, I have been wondering about these for a while. I used to use LaBanderita's corn tortillas but switched back to these because they hold up a little better when heated.

Something has changed in my diet and I wondered it if due to this product. I have not called because I saw gluten free on the package but still have some questions.

I noticed this too-- plus there was a marked absence from the grocery shelves here. I also notice they have taken off the COA statement about "made in a plant that also processes...." Uh-oh.

I have been thinking about these in terms of flying flour. It seems like this would be a very hard thing to keep gluten-free. For example, in my grocery, the packages are stcked right in there with the regular flour ones.

I know they are more expensive, but I have changed to the ivory teff wraps or the rice wraps from the freezer section. They are not as yummy either. :-(

I am a Mission Corn Tortilla fan and the package I bought the other day does say Gluten Free on it. Here is some info I got off their website and it's dated 2009 so I'm thinking it's current.

Are Mission Foods products gluten free?

Mission Foods Corn products are produced with 100% corn flour; wheat ingredients are not added to the formulation. These products include Corn Tortillas, Corn Tortilla Chips, Taco Shells, Tostadas, Corn Gorditas, and Sopes. These products are produced in plants that also process wheat tortillas.

Is there any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in corn tortillas?

No. Mission corn tortillas do not contain wheat, rye, barley, or oat ingredients.

Are wheat flour tortillas produced in the same lines as corn products?

No, our corn production lines are dedicated to corn products only. Wheat Flour tortillas are produced in dedicated lines.

Is wheat used in any way to make the corn products?

There are no wheat ingredients or incidental wheat present in the products or on the lines that produce corn products.

Is there a potential for cross-contamination of corn products with wheat ingredients?

All Mission Foods plants have strict food safety programs in place, including a very comprehensive Allergen Control Program.

Thanks for posting this, Puddy. I'd noticed a while back that they stopped putting "gluten free" on the tortilla chips, but the package of tortillas and taco shells that I've been buying at Vons still have the labelling and I've not had any problems with these.

I was just curious. The packaging is different from the last one I bought. I know they used to have gluten free on it. Thinking it may be more of a liabilty issue. I haven't had issues with them in the past. Nor with the few I have had so far from this package.

I noticed the new packaging as well. My package does not say gluten-free. Since the ingredients looked the same I figured I would give it a try. I have not had any problems.

I called them yesterday as they no longer have gluten free on their packaging. She said all the packaging had to be changed as they make flour tortillas in the same room but on different lines. Flour dust takes 24 hours to settle, so I guess the risk of cross contamination is high enough that they can not call them gluten free.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
