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

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
