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

    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
    • Hi Natalie, The dairy should be eliminated completely for a few weeks at least.  It can be hard to tell what food is causing symptoms at first.  Dairy is a known problem for many people, even those who don't have celiac disease.  Carbs are bad if you are having digestive upset and bloating.  The carbs feed the bacteria that make gas in your gut and that can cause symptoms.  Everybody is an individual though so you may not have bad symptoms.  But when you are trying to heal fast and aren't sure what's causing the problems, eliminating some common problem foods makes sense.  There is no reason to reduce the dairy and carbs slowly though.  They can be cut out completely right away.  You should be able to tell if it's helping within a week or so.  Eliminating them is no problem as long as you don't blow away!    
    • I think it won't hurt a bit to eliminate dairy for a while. As far as carbs, that's kind of an individual thing. Some do better without them or with limiting them and some, like myself, have to have carbs. I am skinny, have a high metabolism & would dry up & blow away without my carbs & I eat lots of carbs. They don't bother me. Keeping a food & symptom log can be a great help especially in the beginning.
