I emailed Kroger about gettinga gluten-free list of products, and got this reply...

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a list of gluten free products, but we have Registered Dietitians available to answer your gluten questions regarding our products.  This way we can ensure that you are receiving the most accurate and up to date information.

Many of our Kroger Brand condiments are gluten free, such as Kroger Brand Ketchup, Kroger Brand Yellow Mustard, and Kroger Brand Mayonnaise. They do contain vinegar, which is distilled from grains, but the Celiac organizations state that distilled vinegar is fine for people with Celiac Disease now (unless your gut is not healed) because the distillation process of the vinegar would remove all the gliadin.

Please feel free to call our Dietitian line at 1-866-632-6900 if you have any further questions. Thank you again for your inquiry.

Sincerely,

Monica W. Smith, RD, LD

Ain't Kroger great! They have so many gluten-free items and their dieticians have been wonderful...I have them on speed dial on my cell phone. Their pharmacists have also been really helpful.

In case you were not aware, many of Kroger's OTC meds are also gluten-free since they are mfr by Perrigo in their gluten-free labs. The Perrigo ones have a logo on them that looks like a rectangle that has rounded edges and a comma-like hook off the right side. This same company makes some of the OTC products for Sam's, Target, and Wal-mart. Be sure to check for the logo since not all store brands are made by this same company.

I have not had any problems with a lot of Kroger brand items and they have always been able to answer my questions. I buy a lot of their products because I live 3 blocks from a Kroger.

I still can't ingest anything with distilled vinegar. I react from it-maybe not from the gluten, but I feel crappy nonetheless!

I stick to apple cider vinegar or balsamic.

Is red wine vinegar bad for us? I think it is but I can't remember.

I can't keep vinegars straight; anyone care to clarify as simply as possible?

I find that vinegar gives me gas so I try to avoid it when I'm in the presence of others. Doesn't make me feel bad but tends to clear the room out of people pretty quick. :lol:

Malt vinegar is pretty much the only one we need to avoid.

Now I'm confused (what's new) re. vinegar. The Kroger quote says "unless your gut has not healed". I am new to the diet and my gut has not healed (I'm pretty sure). Should I be avoiding distilled vinegar? I'm still having alot of tummy troubles and I would like to see some improvement.

I noticed that when I started gluten-free I couldn't handle distilled vinegar too. I've been gluten-free for a long time and it still bothers me. I feel the pinning pains and feel funky. THe only vinegars I'll use is apple cider and you can use red wine and balsamic but don't use malt vinegar. I'd stay away from it for a while then maybe when you feel better try it again but monitor yourself. Vinegar is pretty ruff on the stomach anyways.

Thank you for your input regarding vinegar. I'm only about two weeks into a gluten-free lifestyle and I'm still having stomach cramps after almost every meal. I'm finding that I'm soy intolerant too. So it's getting better as I remove gluten and soy from my diet. I found a gluten/soy/dairy free greek salad dressing recipe to make from scratch and KNOW there's nothing with gluten or soy in it, but every time I eat it my stomach hurts. I've been trying to figure out what's going on, but now see that it's probably because I'm "unhealed" inside. It calls for red wine vinegar and grey poupon.

    • Yeah with the chocolate, I can attest that it really helps with ones mood, problem is most cocoa is processed and defatted, your best best are RAW cocoa from BigTree, Cocoa Nibs, or my personal favorite Crio Bru which is ground cocoa nibs that are meant as a coffee replacement >.> I eat them by the hand full with a bit of sweetener or over food/deserts as a sprinkle They have different roast, and origin beans so you can get varied flavors.  My life has been really hectic as of late, I manage it by consuming a ton of cocoa, and hemp, I honestly can not get depressed if I tried or sad. I just am OH WELL with everything. https://www.criobru.com/shop/
    • I don't know for sure but if you have a emotional roller coaster it may be do to food sensitivities.  The pattern however may be difficult to figure out.  I also removed all grains and milk from my diet. I limit my fruit and fructose consumption (fructose binds with tryptophan in the gut) and don't eat processed food. That might be something you could try. Alcohol can be problematic as well as a diet too high in protein or fat.  Vegetables may be your best bet as far as a healthy nutritious diet.  I take glutamine powder as unbound glutamine is the preferred food for the cells that line the intestine. It is known to help with "leaky gut syndrome."  I think it really helps!!! Glutamine powder is gluten free and it may help repair damage to the brain blood barrier as well.  I also am experimenting with dark cocoa powder as it is rich in antioxidants and flavinoids which can help with healing and improving mood.  Another option would be to research the AIP diet. 
    • While celiac is primarily a genetic disease, there are cases of it appearing in people that have NO genetic history of it, nor the genes for it and it develops as a complete mutation caused by a trigger normally associated with some kind of shock or trauma to the immune system. There the same theory that that applies to bringing out the dormant gene for the disease applies that when the body and immune system is under shock or stress, and consuming gluten the body is easily confused and slips up identifying the gluten proteins as harmful and developing antibodies for them (more so common if you have another AI issue and the body is already under stress).....and like a kind of messed up vaccine you from then on pretty much have it....NOTE this is based off a article I read a while back and I can not quote sources or confirm my wording. PLEASE if anyone can correct this if I am wrong or messed up on my memory. 
    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
