Philadelphia Cream Cheese

I ate Philadelphia's Vegetable Cream Cheese on celery sticks and snap peas and had stomach pains after. I haven't reacted to other Philadelphia products - has anyone else ever had issues with this?

Kraft generally declares if their food has gluten, and they don't say anything about it on the website here: http://www.kraftrecipes.com/Products/ProductInfoDisplay.aspx?SiteId=1&Product=2100061292 but it does have natural flavors in it, which is something you should always check.

Here's Kraft's certified gluten free list. Unless it falls under one of the categories, it's not on there: http://www.kraft.com.au/HealthyLiving/SpecialDiets/FoodIntolerance/GlutenFreeProducts.htm

I hadn't checked Kraft's website for a gluten free list - I honestly didn't think of it for cream cheese, since I hadn't reacted to others. What's interesting is I also use their Honey Nut cream cheese, which isn't on that gluten free list, but I don't react to it. I'll just have to be more careful with their products I guess.

In the US Kraft does not put out a gluten free list. The link posted is for Australia. However Kraft is a pretty good company for labeling and will put any gluten containing ingredients clearly on the label.

Philadelphia Cream Cheese varities from Kraft are a staple at our house ( I know cream cheese shouldn't be a staple::)) But we use it in a lot of recipes, dips, etc. We have never had any problems and are very sensitive to CC. Good luck.

I use a variety of flavors as well and have never had an issue. Do you have anyone in your house who eats gluten? Maybe they dipped a gluten product in your cream cheese? Its happened to me!

I live alone, so it's just me. I even bought a new package of it to confirm that it was what was bothering me and not something else

Maybe it isn't gluten. Is it possible that you have a problem with casein? Do you react to other cheeses?

I had some Philly Cream Cheese and had exposive reaction. Then I saw it has WHEY protein listed. I think that makes it non gluten free.

No, sorry, but whey is gluten free - it is the liquid that precipitates out from yogurt or butter (when churned) or cottage cheese. If you had an explosive reaction it could be from lactose intolerance or from casein intolerance.

Ok I believe you. I do have celiac disease and like most lactose too. I did take the Lactaid but something really got me after I had two types of Philly Cream Cheese. Seems that the Lactaid doesn't always work for me with cheese products, like hit or miss.. I now usually take two tabs.

I found a very good substitute for cream cheese called Mascarpone which is very tasteful. I have not had troubles with this and it is listed as gluten-free online.. :-)

Just to add it was a Philly Creame Cheese with spinach and aricoke.

I have an explosive reaction to spinach.

I would suggest that your reaction may be to something other than gluten.

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
