2010 NFCA Gluten-Free Candy List

Just in time for Halloween, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has released their 2010 Gluten Free Candy list.  It’s a nice and long list, but, of course, most candy is just straight sugar and flavoring, so most is safe.  As is usual, the list is accurate as of printing, so if anything changes at the manufacturing point, it is possible for some of it to become unsafe.  Should work wonderfully for this Halloween though!

Stubb’s Barbeque Sauces Certified Gluten Free

Stubb’s Barbeque sauces recently announced that they’ve gotten their full line of sauces certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization and will start having the seal on their labels on shipments beginning July 1, 2010.

Stubb’s all-natural barbecue sauces are available in Original, Spicy, Mild, Smokey Mesquite, Honey Pecan and Hickory Bourbon. Marinades include Beef, Chicken, Pork, Texas Steakhouse, Moppin’ Sauce and Wing Sauce. All the flavors are gluten free and use cane sugar rather than corn syrup for sweetness.

“The average consumer won’t taste any difference with the gluten-free reformulation, but those who eat gluten free will love our sauces, rubs and marinades as much as our long-time fans,” Koegler said. “Stubb’s is truly a sauce line that everyone can enjoy.”

It’s exciting to see yet another mainstream product take the effort to make their product Gluten Free and go through the certification process.  As always, make sure you buy a few bottles to support their efforts.  Dropping them a line or email doesn’t hurt either!

Asian Helper Chicken Fried Rice

My wife was very excited when we first heard the news that there would soon be Gluten Free versions of some of the Betty Crocker “Helper” lines.  From the sounds of it, there will only be a few to begin with, but if they are popular enough, there might be more.

Last night, we had the opportunity to try out the Chicken Fried Rice Asian Chicken Helper now that it’s being carried in our local store.  It’s got a nice badge on the front of the box declaring it’s gluten free as well as the words gluten free under the ingredient list.  Since this is a rice dish, I’m sure the only real modification they had to make was to change to a non-wheat based soy sauce.

Preparation and cooking was exactly as it would be for any other of the “helper” series.  Simple.  Cook the chicken, add the rice and seasonings with some water and cook until the rice is done (20 minutes).  Once it’s done, move most of it to one side of the pan, scramble a couple eggs in the other side and then mix it all together.   If I were to make it again, I would either make it in a larger pan or make the eggs separately.  Just wasn’t enough room for it all in the pan I was using and it ended up kinda messy.  Also, if you cook it too long, the rice breaks down and becomes more of a mush.  That wasn’t that great, but overlookable.

The meal itself was quite tasty.  Much better than we’ve come to expect from some of the meal in a box offerings.  I’m sure we’ll be picking up some more of it.

ALERT! Lay’s BBQ No Longer Gluten Free

Lay’s BBQ flavored chips are no longer gluten free.  They changed the ingredients and added barley malt flour.  Give Lay’s a call and express your “distaste” for this change.

This is a really good reminder that unless the package specifically says “Gluten Free”, you need to check the ingredients.

Gluten Free Rice Chex

General Mills has seen the light and are now making their Rice Chex cereal Gluten Free!  It even says it right on the box!

There may still be some old stock out there so be sure to make sure the box says that it’s gluten free.  If it says it, then eat up.  They taste the same and crunch the same and make some pretty tasty treats.  If you’re looking for some great recipes to make with them, General Mills has a site with just gluten free recipes for the Rice Chex.

You can see the recipes at the General Mills Rice Chex recipes site.

Smuckers as of 1/22/08

According to Gluten Free Steve, and a phone rep at Smuckers,

I called them today to make sure the apricot preserves I bought was safe, and was told that all of their jams, jellies and preserves are gluten free. Go Smuckers!

I’ll second that Steve. Go Smuckers! Guilt free, and Gluten free Jamming…

McCormick Spices as of 08/29/2007

Excerpt of an email from McCormick Spices:

Thank you for contacting us regarding your special allergies and intolerances to gluten.  We understand that there are a growing number of people that have gluten concerns.  We would like to take this opportunity to provide some additional information and let you know that there are many products available to you that will add the flavor you desire.

We often get the request for a list of our gluten-free products.  We do not provide a list because we want you checking the ingredient statements of our products.   McCormick can guarantee you the following:

1. All of our single ingredient spices are gluten-free.  Our single ingredient spices are 100% pure, with nothing additional added to them.
2. All of our extracts are gluten-free.  They are made with a synthetic Ethyl Alcohol, not a grain-based alcohol.
3. If our products have gluten in them, it will be listed clearly in the ingredient statement.  We do not hide any allergens under “natural flavors” or “spices.” This pertains mainly to our Dry Seasoning mixes and some blends.  An example is our Beef Stew Seasoning Mix.  This contains gluten, and states, “Wheat Gluten,” in the ingredient statement.
4. McCormick goes a step further.  If an ingredient is derived from wheat source, such as Maltodextrin, it will be listed as “Maltodextrin (WHEAT), in the ingredient statement.
5. McCormick follows good manufacturing practices at our plants and takes extra precautions to eliminate the possibility of mislabeling or cross-contamination.

If we can be of further assistance, please call us a 1-800-632-5847, Monday through Friday, 9:30AM to 5PM Eastern Time.

McCormick is obviously a very allergen aware company.  It’s reassuring to know that they clearly label all Wheat and Gluten on their labels rather than hiding it as “natural flavors” or “spices”.  A very clear example of why it’s good to read the labels of anything you buy.

Heinz Gluten Free Products: Via Heinz.com

From the Heinze FAQ:

Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Organic Ketchup do not contain any gluten (the distilled vinegar used is from corn sources). Also, Wine Vinegar, Distilled White Vinegar and Apple Cider Vinegar are gluten-free. Heinz Hot & Spicy Ketchup Kick’rs is gluten-free as well.

As for our other Heinz products, we are not able to guarantee that all ingredients would be gluten-free, since the source of an ingredient may change from time to time. We understand how difficult it can be finding foods that meet the requirements of a restricted diet, and we continue to look for ways to meet the dietary needs of our consumers.

Not the best list of Gluten Free items ever, but it’s a start.  I know there have been questions about some White Vinegars so knowing that the Heinz ones are safe is good. Coincidentally, Heinz Worcestershire sauce is not gluten free as of June of 2007.
