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.

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
