It is the American way to eat “Ranch with everything!” And now, with Uncle Dan’s dry Ranch dressing packets, you can make your “Ranch with anything.” Your best buddy Ranch, made with the ingredients you love and you choose.

Testimonial: “Can you send us some Uncle Dan’s Mom?”

Testimonial: “Can you send us some Uncle Dan’s Mom?”

Chris Stephens1 comment

Looking back over my 35 years, I can’t remember a Christmas or Holiday that did not include Uncle Dan’s Country Dill dip. As my two brother’s and I have grown up and moved all over the country we’ve found ourselves in places that don’t carry Uncle Dan’s. For many years now, when the holidays roll around and Mom calls to ask us what we want for Christmas, all three of us ask for the same thing; “Can you send us some Uncle Dan’s Mom?” We follow the recipe on the back but use salad dressing or Miracle Whip instead of Mayonnaise which gives it an extra kick. So from the Gritten family, thank you Uncle Dan’s for sharing so many Christmas’s with us.

Three Tips for Gluten-Free Label Reading

Three Tips for Gluten-Free Label Reading

Chris Stephens

The folks at the Gluten Intolerance Group have put together a great PDF on how to determine if a product is gluten-free.

To summarize the PDF, they have three tips:

1. Certified: A product which carries a 3rd party certification such as that of GIG’s Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) is considered safe for gluten-free consumers.

2. Labeled: If an FDA-regulated product is labeled “gluten-free” and has a production date of August 5, 2014 or later, it is considered safe to consume.

3. Ingredients: For products which are neither certified nor labeled “gluten-free,” it is essential to read the ingredient list. Just in case you were wondering, all Uncle Dan’s seasonings and salad dressings are certified gluten-free.
