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
