Hidden Valley Ranch Adds “Gluten-Free” to Labels

Hidden Valley Ranch has added a gluten-free logo to their gluten-free products to help simplify shopping and eating for those who have to follow a gluten-free diet.  Something about seeing “gluten-free” on the label makes me feel a little better about choosing that product over one with no such label.  Of course we know that just because “gluten-free” is on the label doesn’t mean that it is safe.  Read on for more information from Hidden Valley regarding their new label:

What we’ve done is taken the added step of auditing our supply chain and securing guarantees that there are no ingredients that contain or are derived from gluten containing grains,” said Shaunte Mears-Watkins, marketing manager for the Hidden Valley brand.

The facilities manufacturing Hidden Valley® products have stringent allergen-control programs to prevent cross-contamination and all of the products listed as gluten free undergo scheduled testing to ensure that the quality of the claim matches the quality of the products.

In addition to the packaging change, the makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings have teamed up with the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF), the leading national Celiac disease organization, to further communicate Hidden Valley’s gluten free promise and to help support the foundation’s efforts to represent the needs and concerns of the Celiac community and raise awareness for early diagnosis of the disease.

Knowing that Hidden Valley has teamed up with the Celiac Disease Foundation has put my mind at ease.  The CDF has been raising Celiac Disease awareness since 1990 and has the support of many of my favorite gluten-free companies.  Make sure to check out their new Resource Directory for help finding gluten-free products.
