Jelly Beans

I thought I read here that JustBorn jelly beans are gluten-free, but I can't find that information now. Can anyone verify that they are, indeed, gluten-free?

Thanks

By your question, does that mean that most jelly beans are not gluten free? I love the Just Born Peeps, and I've been reading labels like crazy. What would be the ingredient in jelly beans that would have gluten? Thanks!

I buy Jolly Rancher jelly beans. They use cornstarch instead of wheat starch or modified food starch. They also have a rich flavor, which my family loves! The bag does say they are made on equipment that also processes peanuts/nuts/milk/eggs, so you have cross-contamination issues for those items. <_<

Most all of them have 'artifical flavors" so I don't know the source of the flavoring. I was always told artificial meant you need to check...

I'm not sure where it is, but I have read that the majority of Jelly Bellys are gluten free, but a few flavors are not.

Planet Harmony tells me their jelly Beans are gluten-free (although cross contamination is possible--though they said they cleaned the machines very well). They also do not have artificial flavors or colors.

This is from the jellybelly.com question and answer page. I included the dairy free ones to for those of us off dairy. I hope this helps.

Question:

Are your Jelly Belly jelly beans gluten-free?

Answer:

We do not use any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in the basic recipe for Jelly Belly jelly beans. The modified food starch used in the manufacture of our jelly bean candies is cornstarch. However, trace amounts of wheat derivatives may be present in the Buttered Toast flavor. (Dec. 2002)

Hi Ryebaby,

Just in case you are filling baskets right now... I do have a list (a few months old) from the old celiac.com site that does list Just Born Jelly Beans as gluten free.

If you need to confirm their # is 800-445-5787

I hope this helps!

Happy Easter,

Ruth

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
