Goodbye Gluten And Rudi's Wraps
0

10 posts in this topic

Rudi's Wraps - I tried them at a gluten free fair earlier this year but they have not hit any of my local grocery stores. We have 2 organic markets, Weis, Wegmans, Giant, Giant Eagle, Safeway and Wegmans in my town many of which carry other Rudi's products. Anyone know where to find them?

Goodbye Gluten - read so many great reviews but haven't seen it in any of the above stores. Has anyone tried it and is it as good as I've read. If so, what grocery store did you find it at?

I've heard Goodbye Gluten is excellent - someone tasted it in their celiac support group and found it at their Wegman's - I think.

I tried emailing them to find out when I could expect to see it on shelves here in Southern California and got an email back saying they don't respond to emails without a phone number listed - I don't give out my phone number so I guess I'll never know ;)

PS...still haven't seen Rudi's wraps, but know others have

I've gotten Rudi's wraps at our local Whole Foods.

The manager at my local Krogers told me to let him know if there were (gluten free) products that I would like to see in their store. They already carry the Rudi's bread so I think I'll ask him to get the wraps. You might put in a request with a manager at one of the stores that already carries Rudi's.

I'm told that all Giant Eagle markets carries the goodbye gluten. And yes, it is very good. thicker slices than what you see for gluten-free bread. It comes in white or multigrain....It is placed in the Nature Basket sections on a small free-standing rack....

I haven't seen it anywhere else......

For Rudi's wraps try the speciality stores.. We like the Sandwich Petals & the Maria & Ricardo's gluten free wraps. We order online for these ones....

What state are you in? I'm in western Pa....sounds like you maybe close....

I'll have to check our Giant Eagle again. Maybe they were out the day I was there. My daughter will be going gluten free after her endoscopy on the 19th and I want to have some bread she will like on hand. I know we should stay away from the gluten-free processed food but I think some items will help her in transition.

Mamaw - I'm in Frederick, MD. :)

Frederick, Md & there is a giant eagle there? I know its not next door to you but do you ever shop Roots Market or the MOMS Market?

I see you also mentioned Safeway.. They have excellent panko gluten-free breaded shrimp at Safeway. If your store doesn't carry it ask them to order it..It is there own brand called

"Waterfront Bistro" I picked up a case while I was in Maryland for vacation. This is the second year I have done that... But the sad note is they maybe discontinuing this product in Jan2013... I had to order it in to a Safeway store I would be near....

Yes, 2 Giant Eagles in Frederick and a MOMs. I have never heard of Roots. We are certainly not lacking in grocery stores yet I still can't find some items. I will look for the shrimp - sounds yummy.

I just tried Goodbye Gluten bread today--it's *amazing*. We'd used Udi's until now, but this is better (in my opinion). It's very moist and squishy. I could even roll the bread into little balls like glutenous bread. My dad tried the multigrain tonight (with homemade chili) and I think he ate six pieces. I ate four pieces of the multigrain and two of the white. I highly recommend it. We got it at County Market. It's $5.49 a loaf here, which is the same as the Udi's, and it's the same size loaf, too. I think we'll probably be switching brands now.

Can't tell you how much I envy those of you with a choice of grocery stores. Here in the boonies (Jackson,MS) we only have Kroger and one local chain. If they ain't got it, you don't get it. We will have a Whole Foods sometime in 2014, and I can't wait!!!!!

Yes, I feel really, really lucky to have so many great stores all within about an 8 mile radius. I asked at Giant Eagle today and they told me it's carried in their Pennsylvania and Columbus stores as a trial. I was lucky to talk with someone very knowledgable about gluten free. She indicated the trial was very positive so she expected the product to be expanded to all stores soon. YEA. I think I'll put a follow-up request in as well.

I'll look out for the sandwich petals and wraps mentioned above. I bought Food for Life brown rice wraps some time back and they are AWFUL! Brittle/chewy - very weird texture.

    • It makes a difference if you are Catholic. Don't want to get into a debate about why, but Catholic's must use some form of wheat in the host.  There is no such thing as a gluten free communion wafer at a Catholic Mass. The solution for a celiac is a LOW gluten host made from wheat starch.  That is not a solution that works for many celiacs.  You could also just take the cup, if it is offered, provided it does not have any of the host broken into it.  You do run the risk of cross contamination unless you are the first person receiving from the cup. Spiritual Communion is sometimes all you can do if you don't have a priest that understands or will work with you. My daughter has become very sensitive after a recent accidental high exposure to gluten. Her symptoms are neurological (loss of use of right foot and right arm, loss of balance, heaviness of limbs, loss of sight).   We spoke to our priest and he ordered a special small cup just for her. He leaves it covered during the consecration so there is no cross contamination.  My husband and I are Eucharistic Ministers and give it to her after we receive so the priest doesn't have to juggle so many things.   So, that is the Catholic solution. There is information on the USCCB website to provide your priest if he needs guidance.  http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm
    • So great to hear! Actually makes sense with the iron, as vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron. Sounds like a good theory that it is either the vitamin C, or vitamin C aiding in the absorption of the iron. Thanks for all the feedback. Going to try adding iron as well. Hoping this will help us both feel better and worry less  
    • Hello and welcome I don't have celiac. I do have several symptoms in common with you and I do have a problem with gluten, so NCGS for want of a better term.  A celiac response to gluten involves the immune system so there certainly can be a delay between ingestion and the body producing the antibodies. That would correlate with your tongue aching progressively through the week. Some of the weirder symptoms of celiac occur because those antibodies that have identified gluten proteins as a problem then attack different parts of the body, maybe that's the more delayed reaction in your case. Last time I was glutened definitely I noticed some reaction in a few hours but it was a couple of days before I was certain. After effects can last for weeks or months even.  Wheat allergy is the one with the instant response, it's IGE mediated and so you can have an immediate surge in histamines and in extreme cases anaphylaptic reaction. NCGS is less well understood, some dispute it's existince or question if gluten is the cause. The symptoms however are similar to celiac as far as I know and that includes response time.  You've been through a miserable time but your still young and you need to decide whether you want to pursue a diagnosis or not. If you do, then it will require a gluten challenge of probably 6-12 weeks. See the links below for more details.  If you don't I suggest you go strictly gluten free, keep a food diary and see if the improvements you noted before continue. I think you've probably found your answer. Best of luck!   Further reading https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/
    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
