Sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm absolutely stunned. I saw a message on another board today claiming that Good Seasons Italian Dressing dry mix, which I've used since I was a kid and love, now has wheat. I went by the store and sure enough, Kraft has added soy sauce with wheat to the mix. The box of packets I bought a couple of months ago does not have soy sauce.

Anybody who uses this product needs to be aware of the change. I also intend to contact Kraft.

Not that I don't already, but this is an excellent reminder of my life motto. Every label, every time. I even read my Classico pasta sauce labels even though I *know* they're safe, just in case. This reminds us that just in case may happen one day. This is also very disappointing. My initial reaction is what the hell?! Oh hey, lets take a perfectly good product and add WHEAT TO IT! <_<

Here's another email I've received. It doesn't make complete sense to me, but...

"I spoke with Kraft yesterday and they explained what happened with their

Good Seasons Italian - dry packet mix. Seems like one of their major

manufacturing facilities had wheat on the production line and it wasn't cleaned.

That's why thousands of boxes had to be re packaged and labeled contains

wheat.

The head of dietary services suggested that if calls were received that

they might be able to sway the top-brass to move to a safer facility.

They suggested that we call 1-800-522-0501 and get a case number and lodge

a complaint.

Many stores still have the old formulation ...I went to several and bought

out the stock.

Check your local stores too."

The pessimist in me says they'll introduce a gluten-free version, label it as such and charge 65% more for it.

I get so irritated when I see coupons for Bisquick limitted to the traditional or low fat version. Why don't they just come out and say "Applies to all varieties except gluten-free". I rarely buy Bisquick, but think I'm going to stop altogether due to their coupon policy.

marilyn, I have used the bisquick coupon for the gluten-free version with no problems... I can't say I like the new gluten-free version but I did buy three gluten-free boxes with a coupon....I doubt I will buy again...

I have heard GREAT things about Betterbatter, but it's not available retail in my area. Must check online.

    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?        
    • This might seem daunting but you will heal, you will be able to eat some foods again soon, but first you have to let go of some extras to speed up healing or your going to develop a few more issues your going to regret. Drop the processed crap, take your time cook whole foods from scratch. No sauces condiments, etc. Drop oats, do not deny it you know you feel edgy when you eat them, While your at it drop all grains, sugars, and carbs. Look up paleo diet, for now you can enjoy meat but if you keep on eating carbs you will loose the ability to eat meat period. You will also develop a corn allergy if your not careful, either the gluten CC or other complications best to limit corn intake and start working on removing it from your diet. Enjoy your grandmothers tamales once a month, learn to make them from her. You have or will develop something called ulcerative colitis, perhaps the paleo diet will prevent this or if you already have it it will save it from getting as bad as I know it did. PS Nunataurals pure powdered stevia, and eyrithrol will be your best friends but got easy on them too much will lead to gastric distress early on. And if you crave deserts like I know you will use nutvia coconut flour mixed with eggs for a base, use ground flax, and chia for thickening also. a little goes a long way and you have to let it set up a bit this will become a base for a lot of your food. Look at investing in a stone mill nut butter grinder, almond butter will be your best friend. To offset cost and make a road map out of life, develop grain free baked good and sugar free options. Artisan Almond Butters, etc. and sell them at farmers markets. You are meant to be a guiding light and to help others with this disease. Do your research look up Celiac.com, Get your own cook area, set up a small dedicated table with dedicated cookware else where, either your room or the bathroom. Let your mother have her kitchen and make your own this will ease family tensions. Invite her to learn how to cook in your area and stay safe. Practice with her and perfect your gluten free dishes early on for a successful chef job later on. You will need a small tabletop convection oven, rice cooker/crockpot/pressure cooker, microwave, nordicware cook ware, mixing bowels, spatula, freezer paper for work surfaces, etc. ALL NEW, DO NOT try to clean you old stuff IT WILL NOT WORK (trust me I tried it) Get a new blender and hand blender also took weeks to figure that one out.

      Supplement wise go look up lucky vitamin.com will save you tons of money. your probably feeling constipated still right? Get Natural Vitality Magnesium Calm and ease in to the dosing at 1/4tsp and ramp it up over the next few weeks, do not be discouraged if it gets really bad at first. Also look up Liquid Health, Stress & Energy and Neurological support they will be your life savers. Give up smoking now look up CBD oil, you will find it works much better for stress and anxiety attacks.

      If you have digestion issues look up enzymes from Jarrow, do not fear take 2-3times the does if you need them.
    • His diabetes educator is not an expert in celiac. IMHO the lets wait 3 months is cruel and unneeded.  Ask his GP if he will give the 'formal' diagnosis if you put him on the diet and those numbers go down with retesting in a few months.  Or ask for an immediate referral to a GI doctor knowledgeable in celiac. With numbers like that there really is no doubt about his need for the diet.
    • You finally know what has been slowly and painfully killing you. Recovery will not be quick but it will come. You will find yourself running up the stairs in 6 months and will sit sobbing at the top for half an hour. It will be about 5 years and lots of PT before you will walk normally again but not long ago you remodeled the bathroom because you were told you would be in a wheelchair soon. The nightly agonizing hours in the bathroom will be replaced with a solid eight hours sleep now except when you accidentally get glutened. Those glutening will come farther and farther apart though as you get better at the lifestyle.  It seems like there is nothing you can eat right now but that will change as more folks are diagnosed and more foods become better labeled.  Your skin will heal and your hair will grow back. That early gray isn't going away but eventually you will prefer it to having to dye it every three weeks or so because it now grows faster than it has at any time in your life. You will have lots of times that you feel sorry for yourself but a quick trip to look at that tackle box full of meds you no longer need will be a comfort. You will have some residual damage even years later but nothing you can't handle. You will be able to work again and to go back and finish those degrees but you will go back to school too soon. Don't be too hard on yourself as a couple years after that you will have recovered enough to take and pass those classes. Your life isn't over with this diagnosis it is just going to be different. But it will be a better different without the pain and moodiness. Eventually your family will understand and stop the eyerolls because they will see you healing. It will be hard socially but your social life was always tough anyway.  The important thing is you will get your health back and that is more important than grabbing a quick meal at a take out joint. Hang in there.
    • I can understand doctors being cautious and wanting certainty before diagnosing a youngster with a lifelong condition that will limit their already limited dietary choices. Even so, his figures seem to make a very strong case and I wonder what their rationale is for waiting 3 months? That seems to be time that could be better spent getting him healthier on a gluten-free diet. I wonder if you can ask them what clinical advantages the delay will bring? Either it could speed the process along, or at least you'd get a better understanding of why they advocate a delay?
