Whole Foods' Nut Choices

11 posts in this topic

I went to Whole Foods yesterday, and it now appears I will have to add yet another store to my food-buying rotation because I could not find any nuts that were without a doubt gluten free. All the 365 brands (and if there are other brands besides that one, I did not see them) say "processed in a facility that also processes wheat," among other things.

Is there some hidden corner I'm missing?

(I don't think I'll use the bulk bins anymore.)

I'm in the same boat - the worst glutening I ever got was after eating some whole foods nuts without reading the label. :-( The safest nuts I've found are the ones still in the shell that are sold in the fall and winter, you know?

That's what I ended up thinking: "well, I guess I'll just have to buy them in the shell." But there are other places, I think, that sell shell gluten-free nuts. In DC, Harris Teeter for instance sells Spanish peanuts raw. I then roast them at home using my own spices. Delicious.

Do keep in mind that shared facility notices are voluntary. Just because it does not say on the label that the facility is shared you cannot assume that it is not.

When I could eat nuts etc, I trusted Planters by Kraft. They will list any gluten, soy etc. They have some natural nuts that list just the nut itself and salt. The natural cashews are awesome!

Thanks Peter. But wouldn't *raw* Spanish peanuts be ok?

They should be. In most cases, I treat the shared facility statement as a legal CYA maneuver.

I have gotten so sick on some of these house brand generic nuts in the packaging from shared facilities, esp. the sunflower seeds, I no longer purchase nuts from the store in question. They seem to be running a lot of stuff out of Texas now, which must be one giant state full of gluten with manufacturers with No Earthly Clue. The owner of Whole Foods is not really concerned with anybody's health as much as his bottom line, proved that when he had the editorial ghost written in the WSJ opposing health care reform down here in the States.

Trader Joe's has nuts that are not processed in a facility that also processes wheat.

Where can I find Organic Peanuts that are not processed in a facility that also processes wheat or milk?

    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval.  Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers.  Best of luck!
    • Run to the nearest celiac disease specialty center if you can. Especially with conflicting doc opinions. Where do you live? Honestly, I test positive to only the DGP and the newest research on its specificity is a mixed bag. My recent scope did not show "active" celiac disease but only a slight increase in IELs.   I am waiting for my post biopsy appointment with the Celiac specialist next month. But I've been through a couple of GI'S locally and honestly I  feel it was definitely worth going to a specialist. Especially when you have some positive blood work but a normal biopsy the doctors really go back and Forth on diagnosis and never really know for certain.  Unfortunately given the above I just said I probably still do not know for certain. Sigh. But I trust the specialist to be at the top of his game on the research  and at least I can feel confident and comfortable in what his opinion may be next month.
    • That's a great list with such great info!  Do you eat at Shucks?
    • I just got a call from the Kaiser GI department. The doctor who performed the endoscopy was supposed to call me with the results and instead the receptionist did. She said "Dr. X says your biopsy was normal and you do not have celiac disease." Word for word, that's it! So not only did I not get to talk to her the day of my procedure, but not at all! They are printing copy of the biopsy pathology report for me and I'll get it tomorrow. I want to see if it says how many samples they took. At this point, I still feel like crap, still have symptoms and I'm going to try a gluten-free diet to see how I improve, get blood tests again eventually.
