Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

If I remember correctly (big if) most of the flavors are gluten-free but not all. I think buttered popcorn is NOT safe.

I think it's the buttered toast flavor that's not gluten-free.

I just downloaded the lastest version of Clan Thompson and it looks like the buttered toast flavor is now gluten free. :)

Here's the link that debmidge mentioned.

The Jelly Belly website didn't make a distinction on individual flavors not being gluten-free. It stated that their Jelly Belly jelly beans are gluten free...wouldn't that mean that all flavors then are gluten-free?

Anyone who wants more info ..and to verify specific flavors...should contact this manufacturer to clear any matters up.

This is exactly what they say in the Questions Section:

Question:


Are your Jelly Belly jelly beans gluten-free?



Answer:


Yes they are. We do not use any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in the recipe for Jelly Belly jelly beans. The modified food starch used in the manufacture of our jelly bean candies is cornstarch.

So with that I would say they are all gluten-free
