Did you know walmart had a gluten free section?

I just found the gluten free section at walmart! Can't believe it took me this long to find it, its not big but its ironically next to all the pre-made lean cruisen meals and stuff.

While this gluten free stuff is still kind of bad, it doesn't cause me pain like gluten does for instance udis bread and tsyon/apple gate chicken tenders/nuggets which I eat sparingly

How's your gluten free section?

addendum

PH comment system appears jacked up...I cannot see you recent comments. I'm replying based on the text in email notifcation PH website (in chrome or IE does not show your latest comments.

Of course rice or other grains dont have the gluten issues of wheat but I thought we were discussing "true" sourdough processes on ancestral wheats? Carrots, almonds, beef & eggs are low gluten too.

Rice flour and such are better than gluten though

The first source says content not found... and even if it can break down the gluten. There are no studies to the effect on wheat germ agglutinin. That is what I believe causes a lot of problems in bread.

agree ! For those who are sensitive to gluten having GF bread is better than regular bread even though you'd be better off without. I made some french toast for my daughter with GF bread yesterday and she loved it. It is not an everyday thing, a rare treat. I wouldn't touch it at all as it has no appeal whatsoever to me. As for Walmart I try to avoid it.

Sorry Tex, but 'real' sourdough made from the right flour is a LOT better than "a little bit better". Not a complete set of 'references' but enough to get you started. Believe them if you want , don't if you don't.

I dont have time to look for it, but while sourdough is a little bit better it doesn't completely negate everything and i dont have time to google the source. Believe me if you want , don't if you don't

Yes.. but I don't eat my phone. :)

I'm not sure this is quite correct....."Sourdough doesn't take out all the lectins but takes it out substantially"...

I know that "modern" / done in 20 minutes sourdough made with aggressively crossbred and hybridized wheat doesn't do s...! But low gluten (ancestral) wheat fermented with natural yeast (not modern baker's yeasts derived from brewers yeasts) ...the combined process has been said to lower gluten levels to the neat gluten free levels. I look for the cite.

Of course, but its walmart designed for the masses not paleo-eaters. They do have cage free all natural eggs for the Great value brand, my roommate just bought today.

yea like the previous posts said its probably not worth looking at, but atleast its a step in the right direction. business will give people what they want, apparently more people want gluten free. unfortunately im not sure 'Real food' or 'whole food' will ever be a prerogative for big business as they cannot make as much a profit without processing the food. fortunately for us whole foods are pretty much omnipresent and all we have to do is not buy the processed crap and push for better quality or more like less added toxins on our whole foods.

I hate Wal-Mart with a passion and try like hell to avoid going there-unfortunately we live in a VERY Small town... anyway-I noticed the gf section, the problem I have with it is this: they put gluten products in the same case as the gf because it is "all natural" WTH. I was looking for a quick chicken tender meal "to go" since we were going to visit family and they have NOTHING we can eat-and it had wheat in it-right smack dab next to the gf stuff. if I had sent my m.i.l to get tenders for my kids-she would have seen the cheaper price on the package-In the GF section and assumed they were ok. also, I feel that if w.m. wanted people who are gf to shop there-they might try separating things a bit. personally, my grocery shopping does not happen there unless it is "in a hurry" kind of stuff like birthday parties

I believe most GF products contain starches. Check the label. The starches used are junk.

Wal-Mart is definitely not paleo. :)

The typical manufactured gluten free stuff is chemical soup... on par with Twinkies (chemically, not from a gluten POV).

If you want GF..... JERF that doesn't have gluten and avoid all that processed junk.

If you want real bread & baked products (potentially gluten free or greatly reduced), look into ancient strains of wheat and slow fermentation with naturally occurring & nurtured yeasts...ie ancient sourdough practice. Yeah, it's potentially a lot of work.. that's why I haven't done it yet.

Processed / manufactured GF foods are the new millennium equivalents to the "low-fat" goodies like "Snack-Wells".

I agree with Varelse.. Wal-Mart ain't great.

Some Wal-Marts have more stuff than others. The one near me has seriously one four foot section and it's the super crappy gluten free stuff - poptarts and cereal bar crap, a few crackers but not even the good ones like Almond Nut-Thins.

I try to avoid Wal-Mart anyway. It's ruining America.
