What's really frustrating for me is that, although some foods are GF, they still contain other ingredients that I'm allergic to. I am always looking for recipes to make condiments, but I always have to leave something out or exchange it for something I can tolerate. I have to make everything from scratch. AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHH.

On the bright side, it is healthier than eating processed or pre-packaged food.

I was at Costco yesterday (the only one in VT) and the tamales and taquitos they carry are not from Heintz and the taquitos are def. not GF.
I always read labels but it's nice to have a list of products to check first. I'm waiting for the day when GF is truly maingstream and "gluten free" will stand out on the package the way "low fat" or "whole grain" does.

Congratulations for gettting a list out of them and the BBQ Sauce recipe!

two notes - Lee & Perrins is not GF in Canada! - one needs the USA product (SparkPeople is an international website)
And consumer FAQ's website says the following:
" Where can I find gluten-free products?
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."

On checking the list, I noticed that Trader Joe's and Costco products under Deli-Mex heading and Del-Mix is part of Heinz. Just confirms once again how our foods are ruled by a few large companies. Another reason to support our local farmer's markets and producers. You'll know what you are eating and where it comes from.

Wow! That is great information. I will copy the recipe for barbeque sauce. (Now if they would just take the high fructose corn syrup out of their products, I could have more of them.)
