Meijer Brand Ricotta Cheese
0

13 posts in this topic

I just recently got retested and found out that my antibodies are still very elevated. So I've been looking closer into the foods I'm eating.

Does anyone know if Meijer brand ricotta cheese has gluten in it or not?

The info from the Meijer website is very conflicting. According to the gluten free list, this food does not have any gluten. But according to the allergens list, this food DOES contain gluten. So which one am I supposed to believe? Also in my gluten-free grocery guide, it says there is no gluten.

Any help?

That last test has really freaked you out, hasn't it? Take a breath! :)

The only cheese of any kind I have ever seen in the last year and half (. And I love cheese so I look) was this beer cheese my hub got in the Ozarks. There is no reason to have gluten in ricotta or any other cheese except Crazy Ozarks Beer Cheese.

I second that. I've never seen Ricotta with gluten in it!

I wonder why the one list said it had gluten. Perhaps a mistake? Regardless, I think I will avoid this brand in the future.

Sorry to hear about your antibodies being high :(

Just curious, have you actually looked at the ingredients in the ricotta? What ingredient could be hiding gluten? If you haven't looked at the ingredients, well it's just my opinion but I don't think it's smart to depend on lists. Ingredients change or lists can be wrong.

In over then years on the diet, I have not found a cheese that was not gluten-free. I have not encountered the "beer cheese" that Karen's husband found, but it would be a very rare exception to the general rule that cheese is gluten-free.

Actually awhile back I bought some blue cheese that was imported from Denmark. Later, I read on the label that it was grown on bread, so I threw it out. So it is possible for cheese to have gluten in it, unfortunately.

I've seen that, too.

FYI ricotta is incredibly simple to make and much cheaper (same with creme fraiche).

No problem. Handy when you cannot find ricotta or when you just feel like making it yourself!

Any list of gluten free foods will tell you to stay away from blue cheese because of just that. Other cheeses should not contain gluten if they are natural cheeses and not processed or spreads.

Actually, there are lists that say blue cheese is gluten-free without qualification. The Canadian Celiac Association lists "Cheese (blue)" as gluten-free. Shelley Case lists cheese as gluten-free with a few possible exceptions--blue is not one of them.

The starter culture for the mold is so far removed from the final product as to be irrelevant in practical terms. If you have a reaction to it, don't eat it, but for all but the most very sensitive it isn't an issue.

Peter is right. Blue cheese is considered safe without qualification.

    • I was wondering if anyone could assist me in sore throat remedies. Cough drops? Teas? I am gargling with salt water but wanted something else. Anything gluten free obviously. Thanks. 
    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
