Gf Dairy Free "ice Cream"
0

8 posts in this topic

I was wondering in anyone has tried this brand. We have not had luck with Rice Dream, Tofutti or Soy Dream. I can't find any Mocha Mix frozen dessert. But in my searching I came acrossed this. I am waiting for an e-mail response to whether they sell it on the west coast. Anyone on the east coast tried this brand?

Klein's Kosher Ice Cream

Let me know. I've looked at the ingredients and can't find any gluten. In fact they have a gluten free list under the special diets link. You can find the items that are dairy free and gluten free if they are on both lists.

God bless,

Mariann

Hi Marianne:

Actully I have never heard of that brand. I live in New York (east coast!) so I am certainly going to look for it. Ice cream is my favorite food in the world! When I find it I will let you know. I found on a gluten-free web site that Breyers All Natural ice cream was gluten free but a nurse at the doctors told me it wasn't. So I have 2 half gallons in my freezer and I'm afraid to eat them because now I don't know if it has gluten or not. My goodness this diet is confusing and I've only been on it 9 days! I wish you all the best and may God bless you and your family. Susan

Susan555,

What are the ingredients in the Breyers that you bought? They might be safe. Post the ingredients here and we'll check. Or you could call the manufacturer and check with them. Don't throw it away without checking. There might be some ingredients that are questionable, but do not necessarily contain gluten.

Anyhow, I am looking for dairy free ice cream too. Not a lot of choices out there. I did get a response from the company. They gave me the number for the California distributor to see if there are any stores near me that might carry their products. They have a large selection of gluten free frozen goodies. Click on the link above that says Klein's Kosher Ice Cream and it should tell you where you can find it locally.

God bless,

Mariann

Hi Mariann:

The two flavors of Breyers All Natural ice cream I have right now are Chocolate (of course!) and paech. The ingrediants in the chocolate are : milk, cream, sugar,cocoa, natural flavor-----the ingreadiants in the peach are :milk, peaches, sugar, cream, natural flavor.

The ingrediants sounded ok to me but that "natural flavor" makes me wonder. I've just been doing so good on the gluten-free diet and I don't want to mess up.

I can't believe it, I have been 2 days without any abdominal cramping and pain!! Praise the Lord! Susan

Sometimes (but not often) the natural flavoring can contain gluten. Just call Breyers to check. There should be a number on the container. I also sent them an e-mail. I'll let you know what they say, if you don't already have an answer. :)

God bless,

Mariann

Which type of Rice Dream did you get? The vanilla and carob are definately gluten-free - we eat them all the time. The Mint Carob Chip is not gluten-free - processed with barley. We have contacted Rice Dream and they are very aware of Celiac and allergy issues and manufacture their ice cream in order of "least problematic" to "most" so the risks of cross-contamination are nil.

Sorry, didn't mean to imply that the Rice Dream wasn't gluten-free. I am thinking (since I don't have any to read the labels) that the problem was with it containing casein, and the flavor didn't go over well the last time my kids tried it (pre-diet).

I am just trying to find something that goes over well with the kids as far as taste goes. They liked the Tofutti fudge bars, but one of my kids is having a problem with soy, and unless I can find something they can all have then we all go without. Not fair to give two of them the fudge bars and the other little guy has nothing. Today is my out of town shopping day. I'll be looking around the city for some Mocha Mix and possibly some of the Klein's brand.

God bless,

Mariann

Susan, This is the response I got from Breyer's:

Thank you for your recent inquiry about gluten. We currently do not have a

gluten list, and are recommending consumers read the ingredient label on our

cartons. If wheat, barley, or rye were used in a product, it would be clearly

listed. The flavorings may contain ethyl alcohol. However, we cannot

guarantee from which grain the alcohol was derived. Because the alcohol used

in our products is distilled, there are no proteins present and would not pose

a threat to anyone who is gluten intolerant.

So it is really up to you if you want to try it and see if you get a reaction.

God bless,

Mariann

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
