I don't know if many of you have even heard of alidi's grocery store, but if you have then maybe you can help. I don't know if some of their products are gluten free or not. I don't remember a number to call, so I am just curious if anyone can help.

I've heard of Aldi's but it was in Germany... not the US... (they don't have them on the west coast of the US)

*rumor alert*

I've read they are related to Trader Joe's.... but that TJ's doesn't advertise this fact because Aldi's is more of a discount place and TJ's, though it is fairly inexpensive, wants to appeal to a different demographic. I read this online about two years ago when I was looking up Aldi's on a nostalgia kick as I had shopped at the one next door to my friend's apartment in Mainz, Germany.

On edit - it's no rumor. Here's a link about it: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/conte...17/b3880016.htm

We have an Aldi's in my town, but (this is SO stupid) I've never been in there because my husband's ex used to work there and I just think of her every time I see the place. (I know, I'm a moron!)

If they have any decent gluten-free stuff I'd be willing to check it out though. Do they have a website?

I just went to Aldi's with my grandma. She shops there all the time. I found several products there in the frozen food section that clearly states "gluten free".

I like Aldi's but getting information from them about products is like pulling teeth! I've tried to get info about any of their products that "might" be gluten-free and I get no response... just told to talk to the manager in my local store, well, the manager in my local store knows NOTHING about gluten-free.

Our Aldi's has all these no-name products I've never heard of, but I have found several things that are gluten-free just by checking the labels. They have pudding mixes and chicken rice soup, for example, that don't list any nasty ingredients like modified food starch or hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and everything is so cheap! But it's a different shopping experience than the usual grocery store in many ways. Bring your own bags and a quarter to rent a cart.

Can you tell us what the names of the gluten free products are that you bought?

I bought the Grandessa seasoned pototoe wedges and beef jerky. The thing about aldi's is that they don't carry name brands. But the few items I did pick up either said gluten free or does contain gluten.

I went to Aldi's with my husband today... he loves it there, so I got the phone number for the main office from the manager there. Well, actually it was for the local main office, then they gave me the number for the corporate office... I called them today and got someones voice mail after being passed around to four different departments, lo and behold she actually called me back.

Bad news was that they cannot do a list of any of their products that may be gluten free, the are simply a distributor and work with a lot of different manufacturers and suppliers change things too often for them to have any kind of list. She said they've had MANY calls on this and have tried to figure out at least for the last two years how to do it, but they simply can't. What she suggested that I do is when I am in the store, make a list of any products that I am interested in and mail that list to the address on the package. They will then forward the request onto the manufacturers and then the manufacturers should get back to me with the information.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
