So far I've been sticking to Kraft because they are so good about labeling allergens I feel safe eating them. I'm having a hard time finding a good Asian Sesame dressing that is gluten free though. That was always my favorite prior to being diagnosed.

I like Ken's Sweet Vidalia Onion Lite, and Honey Mustard. Most of Ken's dressing are safe.

Most of Annie's Naturals are safe as well. I like the Papaya Poppyseed.

Yes. With the exception of malt vinegar, which will always be labeled as "malt vinegar," all vinegars are gluten-free.

I've been using Krafts & Kens. I hope I can find that Papaya Poppyseed sounds great!

I like to make my own, and it's easy too.

Oil

Vinegar

Sugar

Pepper

Garlic Salt

Dried Mustard

Dash of Tabasco

Kraft Parmesan Cheese

Put in a jar and shake. Any type of variations can be made from this.

Yes, Kraft will always list any form of gluten. Most of Paul Newman's Own are gluten free, except the Family Italian (but always read the labels). They also will always list all forms of gluten.

Many gluten free products can be found by goggling the Product Name - Gluten free, as in "Salad Dressing-Gluten Free" or "Heinz Vinegar - Gluten Free".

Salad dressings are really pretty easy and most are gluten-free. Of course wheat MUST be listed and barley will almost always show up as malt or malt flavoring. I've found VERY few dressings with gluten, and in my experience it's always been listed.

I am an avid salad eater, because there is not much room for doubt!wink.gif I like lighthouse salad dressings there are quite a few that are my favorites, they also have fruit dips that are gluten free as well.

i almost always stick to kraft and newman's own dressings, because they have clear labeling policies. the only dressings that i've seen that have gluten are the asian inspired dressings that use soy sauce. salad dressings are pretty low risk as far as i'm concerned :)

Ummm I keep hearing that people are using Kraft Dressings - but the thing is Kraft Dressing use certain ingredients that don't always trigger the "WHEAT ALLERGY" warning such as: Artificial color, Artificial flavor, caramel color, Dextrin, Food starch, vegetable starch, modified food starch, and natural flavors ALL can be made from wheat or barley, and therefore they contain gluten. They can also be made from rice, potatoes, corn, or tapioca all of which are safe, so when you see any of those ingredients listed, call the manufacturer to confirm if that ingredient was derived from a gluten-free source.

A couple of "Wishbone Salad Dressings" are clearly labeled as "GLUTEN FREE" on the back with the Nutritional Information - those are the dressings, I will use. If it doesn't say "GLUTEN FREE" and it contains those ingredients and I haven't called to confirm for sure, I won't touch it.

Kraft has stated they do not hide gluten in any form, meaning they have gone beyond declaring the law required wheat.

That being said, in the US, many of those things you listed are often gluten-free. It is never a bad idea to call the manufacturer if you are in doubt.

Kraft has a very clear labeling policy (wish all companies did!). I feel very comfortable buying Kraft dressings (after reading the ingredient list, of course).

I am very comfortable buying products from any Kraft brand. I know that if I don't see a gluten grain listed, it isn't hiding. Unilever is another huge company with the same policy--disclose any gluten grain by name.

My favorites are Bolthouse Farms, they have so many ones, but are made with yogurt. They are labled gluten-free. Wishbone will lable gluten-free also. I love Maple Grove Farms of Vermont. Their Lime Basil is wonderful, all of their dressings are gluten-free. I'm not a fan of the Poppyseed.

Most Annie's Organic Dressings are labeled Gluten Free. However, They Are Not Certified Gluten Free. I called the company and they state that the dressings containing gluten are made on separate equipment in a different area of the manufacturing plant. This helps me because I have had problems with products labeled but not Certified Gluten Free.

Unless you know otherwise from a reliable source, always assume that "malt" is derived from barley. Malt vinegar is not distilled, and malted barley is present providing a source of gluten.

I reacted to Bolthouse farms gluten free ranch. But I am one who reacts to anything 5ppm even. My head burns within a minute of eating like acid is being poured on my brain and I pass out sometimes  and that is just if there is any cross contamination.  I would not recommend Bolthouse to any one who is a celiac. Taste good but even if some do not react to low ppm of gluten does not mean it is not there. I want to put that out there for those who are with severe reactions. You are eating gluten if you eat Bolthouse dressing. :/

Some of them appear to be gluten free.  These should be fine for most Celiacs.  You could ask them what level they test to.  Perhaps there are other ingredients that bother you.

However, if you are that sensitive, you don't eat foods made or produced by someone other than yourself.

No one with celiac should be eating anything not made in a gluten free facility. But there are those times that we branch out. We eat only whole foods in our home minus a few things because my 3 children love Ranch dressing.  Being 2nd generation American my blood line is stronger to the tie of celiac. It is very dangerous and mine came out after having my third child. America is the worst country for gluten free because the lack of understanding even from celiacs. My advise to all is to make a food revolution and study celiac from Ireland and Romania point of view. I am learning my way around American labels but it was Bolt house dressing with gluten contamination and they should not be alowed to bear a gluten free label with out listing processed in a facility that process wheat but more than that other celiacs should not be knowledgeably suggesting Bolt house dressing. I just put that out there for people with out watered down ancestral version of celiac disease. Some of us have seizures. I am one of those people. No okaying this product. If some one says there is a reaction to it and warns for people who react to lowppm another member should say I am very sorry for your severity good info. Not judge me. I may look 12 in my photo but I am 3 times that and not even 5 foot tall. Thanks to celiac disease genetic disposition and underdevelopment. Please support celiacs who react to products you do not react to. How nice it must be.

Not sure what that stuff about watered down blood line/ ancestral versions means..... I have never seen any experts talking about that. From what I understand about how genes work, that doesn't make much sense. I would like to see some info on that. Perhaps you could make a new topic with links to that research?

Companies in the US are allowed to label products gluten free if they test at less than 20 ppm ( when the new law takes effect so most companies are using that standard or better).

I am sorry if you think you had a reaction to it, but that doesn't really prove that it has gluten or that they are lying about the gluten-free status of the product.

You are entitled to your opinion, but I strongly disagree with it.

There are so many safe foods from companies with shared facilities. And, of course, if we follow your advice we can NEVER eat a restaurant--but I do at carefully chosen ones.

    • Also I should add that in the 12 weeks, my vitamin d plummeted and now am deficient. Would you guys accept a celiac diagnosis (I am pretty confident that I have it- I was sad before the challenge that I couldn’t eat gluten anymore. Now after the challenge i am EXCITED to never eat it again as I feel like such crap now) or can a positive diamodated Gliadin  IgG indicate anything else? Or is it specific to celiac? I am happy to get a diagnosis,  but want to make sure it’s the right one. I wish I trusted my doc more (example- 3 days ago they called and said congrats, no celiac, u can eat gluten!! The doc signed off on it. But I looked at my results and pointed out that the deamidated IgG levels were not reported yet. The doc said whoops my bad. The next day they came back positive and I got another call & they said, nevermind, no gluten, you’re positive! They are idiots). 
    • Looking for advice and also to help those undergoing testing. I went to my general practitioner back in August with nausea, bloating, diarrhea, migraines, sluggishness, and a feeling of general unwellness. I was eating a gluten diet at the time. My doc ordered the dual antigen screen- it came back positive for celiac. He set up an appointment for me with a specialist. I called the specialist and they could get me in 8 weeks later. I asked the specialist if I went gluten free is this would affect any testing. They said “no” that I was in a gluten diet for so long I would be fine. However, 8 weeks later, the blood test showed no celiac- my results were normal after 8 weeks on a gluten free diet. I felt great, for me the turnaround was almost immediate- in a week or 2 I felt amazing. But that didn’t help with getting accurate results (mostly wanted to rule out another autoimmune disorder). I then went on gluten for 7 weeks (I ate a lot of gluten- like at least a bagel a day and much more on some days- I wasn’t messing around, I wanted an accurate diagnosis)and repeated the blood test at 7 weeks. It came back a very weak positive for deamidated gliadin abs iGg. I then underwent a endoscopy because the doc said that number, although positive, was not high enough to go off of. The endoscopy came back normal- however, the doc noted that higher levels of antibodies were found but not in the “abnormal range.” So, they were present, just not in crazy levels. I then kept eating gluten- I should note my doctors SUCK (could do a whole other post just on this- I have been my own doctor pretty much). I just took another blood test at 3 months eating gluten. My levels are now SUPER high for deamidated Gliadin abs IgG. The doc is confident I have celiac. Question is- my doc is so bad, I wanted to check here to make sure that it indicates celiac. I also wanted to help others as I know there’s lots of conflicting information on how long to do a gluten Challenge. For me, it took 3 months. My gut tells me I am early stage celiac- I don’t have full blown damage yet, but if I keep eating it I am sure it will do some damage. Just wanted to highlight this as if your case isn’t super bad yet, you may have to eat gluten longer- everyone is different. Any advice on my results would be awesome!
    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.
