Hi everyone. Can anyone recommend an egg free, wheat based pasta. We've been eating tinkyada for years and I'm sick of it.

My daughter reacted to catelli years ago. Their pastas are made on the same equiptment as egg and the company does not recommend them for the egg allergic.

sorry....my son is obviously less sensitive. His reaction to egg has only been a rash and he can now eat it cooked in foods.

I am much more attuned to trace with my nut allergic son.

Good luck. If I hear of anything, I'll let you know

We use the Catelli "Smart" (in the purple boxes). It doesn't say anything about "may contain". Is all Catelli pasta made on the same line as egg?

For anyone who is looking into Catelli Pasta, please read the thread on this forum: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5019

Three weeks ago my daughter reacted to Catelli. I called the company and they confirmed that ALL of their products, including Catelli and Lancia brands, are manufactured on the same line as egg products. They said that they absolutely would advise anyone with an egg allergy to avoid ALL their products. There is a risk of cross contamination, and the rep told me that they do not always wash the equipment in between batches. If your child has not reacted to it, that may have been a safe batch, but there is no way to tell which batch is safe and which is not.

Currently, we use PC Blue Menu 100% Whole Wheat Pasta, which you can find at any Loblaws store. I called (five different times just to make sure) and was assured by multiple reps that they sterilize the equipment between batches and have some sort of process of kosherization in place. They also list may contain warnings on their products if there is a risk of cross contamination. I was told by the reps that they are very allergy aware and feel very confident that their blue menu pasta is free from eggs. They even said that they "guarantee 100% that it is free from egg traces."

My daughter has been consuming it for the past two weeks without any problems. She is anaphylactic to egg in even trace amounts. So I feel that it is safe.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for posting that Noha. I had no idea! It's been awhile since we've bought pasta but I would have just gotten the same box of Catelli as always since he's eaten it with no problems before. Is this a recent change to the process? Are they now going to label for may contain egg?

Diana..

I am assuming it is recent because last year they told me it was safe. This year obviously not. At some point the process changed and they did not announce it.

They have no intention of including may contain warnings they told me because egg is not in the ingredients. They said that because the may contain label is voluntary, they did not feel the need to put it on the package!
