Gluten Free List

Reactions: 
Gluten. Glue-ton. That's one way to remember it. Gluten is  basically the starchy part of the bread that gives it it's unforgettable texture; the glue that binds all the tons of bread crumbs together in an elastic fashion. And maybe it even contributes to the heavenly fresh baked bread smell? Unfortunately, gluten is the arch-enemy food allergy to millions of eaters around the world. It can cause unsightly acne, unbreathable gas, and an ever-powerful ability to whip an allergic eater into a food coma. Sound like something you can relate to? Well  fortunately, Trader Joe's cares about the health of all the eaters and labels all their gluten free foods with a g . So if you see a g  on the product in hand and you're a gluten allergy eater, then its good to grab and eat!

Here is a list of the gluten-free products carried at Trader Joe's taken from their website:

  2. Not all the items from the no-gluten list on trader joe's website are actually labeled gluten free on their packaging. If I selected items that are the Trader Joes brand from the list they are gluten free whether they are labeled as such or not?

    1. If they are not labeled on the product packaging you always need to check the company website. If no information is listed on the website contact the company directly.

  5. IS TRADER JOES REALLY GLUTEN FREE???
    They SAY they are gluten free on the packages.. but yet cross contamination worries me.. on almost ALL of there gluten free products
    they say GLUTEN FREE but yet they say they are MADE IN A FACTORY THAT SHARES EQUIPMENT WITH WHEAT, SOY, MILK, ETC.. SO HOW ARE THESE GENUINELY GLUTEN FREE??? I have celiac which sucks so it just angers me...

  6. Yep, almost every single thing on that list is made on shared equipment, so for those of us with a diagnosis of celiac sprue, Trader Joe's is a no-go. It's unfortunate because they have a lot of great products and it would be awesome to be able to shop there. If you have a true auto-immune disease which prevents you from eating gluten, DO NOT shop at TJs - it's just one more thing that'll make you sick!

  7. I agree. I came on the web site to see what is gluten free and what is not. I've been getting reactions to much of what I buy at Trader Joe's. I drive down from BC to Bellingham just to shop there. After having reactions to almost everything I buy there, 2 years later I've decided I won't be shopping there any more. The rice milk is made by the same company that makes Rice Dream and Rice Dream uses barley gluten in the process, than claims it is taken out and is gluten free. Well it isn't.
    Can anyone recommend an Almond milk that is gluten free?

  8. Silk almond milk (not at Trader joe's) is an awesome gluten free, vegan almond milk. It also has tons of calcium, vitamin B's, and vitamin D

  9. Oh my gosh! Rice milk! What next? I've been sort of hoping that the "made on shared equipment" was more of a pro forma warning than an actual statement of gluten, but after having similar experiences at the Bellingham Trader Joes, I'm going to have to face facts and find alternatives.

  11. I have a four year old autistic son who is picky and was to do a autistic detox diet for him. It's not much he will eat so I wanted to find gluten free foods that he does eat.

  12. People who put down Trader Joe's and Gluten Free are shoppers that are bad mouthing TJ's cause they work at Whole Foods. I love Trader Joes and I recommend the Udi breads and all other gluten free packages.

  13. I recently was diagnosed with a Gluten Allergy that brought with it severe symptoms. I have only been GF for a week now. (My symptoms subsided within 36 hours!) Upon entering Trader Joe's I asked for a GF list and was assured these products were safe. I noticed that some not specifically labled GF did say they were processed on shared equipment with wheat. When I asked the manager I was told "yeah, but they clean the equipment." SERIOUSLY!!! I'm sorry, when did the store manager become the expert??!! Did he SEE them clean the equipment??? I am very disappointed that a company would give out a list and say its GF when its not. The FDA considers foods containing less than or equal to 20 ppm to be gluten-free. If they are not labeled GF then most likely there will be contamination.

  14. You should bring gluten-free pasta!!! Please!!!

  15. Ever since I learned of Trader Joes through a friend, 9 years ago, I NEVER shopped for food in other stores!!! There is something about Trader Joes to which nobody can compare. Trader Joes is the best. High quality food, organic, TASTY, and comparative pricing (they are wholesale so there is no middle-man to sky-high the prices). I don't think I can live in an area where there is no Trader Joes. Love love Trader Joes!

  16. Seriously look at packages before buying, this is an issue in ANY store with GF, it's a warning so know what you can and can't eat. I am new to shopping for this type of food and now that disclosure is legally required some of this is to warn people who are allergic, just like peanuts or anything else. How about a conversation on what's good, what tastes good, for the cost differences. Why don't we help each other out a bit more.

  17. "When I asked the manager I was told "yeah, but they clean the equipment." SERIOUSLY!!! I'm sorry, when did the store manager become the expert??!!"

    Sorry, but why did you ask the manager since you already know he's not the expert? There's nothing worse than when you are working in customer service and customers ask questions that are obviously well beyond your capacity to accurately answer.

  18. I have only recently begun shopping at TJ's and found many nice products. However, I have been gf for almost 5 years and I can tell within 20 minutes of eating something if its contaminated. I get nauseous about 10 minutes after I ate it, and then the rest of the gluten symptoms begin. I purchased the frozen Biryani mix at the recommendation of someone, it does not list wheat, gluten or that it's been made on share equipment. It is on the gf list for the store. BUT.....I ate some for the first time ever and it's giving me symptoms. Probably my bad because the package doesn't specifically say "gluten free" but if one were to rely on the store list....well.. anyway. And if it has said 'processed on shared equipment I would not have purchase because I know I am certain to get gluten if I buy anything that's made on shared equipment. So I'm not sure what that says about the store list of gluten free products but I won't be buying this product again and if it's not labelled GF, I'm staying clear even if it's on the list.

  19. TJs has labeling of "no gluten ingredients used' AND "gluten free" - to a Celiac, there is a huge difference. This list is a "no gluten ingredients" list and does not rule our cross-contamination.

  20. That's an impressive list for a gluten free home. I didn't know that trader Joe's had so many gluten free foods available. The brownies look interesting as do the foods containing brown rice.
