Baskin Robbins

7 posts in this topic

I've read many places that Baskin Robbins is gluten-free for the most part, and that they have little signs right on the ice-cream choices that list their ingredients. However, I was there today and noticed that although some of their flavors listed "wheat", the other ones that I know for a fact must contain wheat were not labeled at all. For example, a flavor that included both malt and chopped up Whoppers candies was simply listed as "dairy, milk", no mention of wheat! It made me wonder how many other flavors are suspect and without proper ingredients warnings.

Malt is barley and that is not wheat so it would not be labeled under wheat.

Barley is a no-no for Celiacs, though, and that's my objection...I think they should be more careful in their labeling, but unfortunately, they're more "allergy" alert than Celiac alert. But that's the case everywhere! Also, I've never read the ingredients on "Whoppers" candies, but I'm assuming it does contain glutenous ingredients.

They get around it a lot of times by saying "gluten-free except for mix-ins". Thanks for nothing!

Yes, Whoppers are glutenous. They have malted barley, wheat flour, malt syrup, artificial flavors, and modified food starch. The first two are definite no-nos, the other three raise red flags.

yes i know that barley is bad for celiacs but i was saying that things containing barley would not be labeled as wheat because it is not wheat and all baskin robbins does label is wheat not gluten and all i was stating was that they would not be labeled together. even though baskin robbins labels things (and this goes for any place) you still have to be careful about what you eat and look at the ingredients and not just assume that because it says it doesn't contain wheat it still may they could have made mistakes or change the ingredients without changing the sign so don't assume.

P.S. my other thing is daisydday76

Have any of you ever tried to request a gluten-free list from Baskin Robbins? I'm pretty new to this but I've inherited printed materials from other celiacs that included some lists that they got from companies...None from BR though. ARGH! I just took my son there today. :(

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
