I have been hearing mixed opinions on Pillsbury Funfetti frostings. The label lists soy and they do not know the source of the flavorings. Does anyone know for sure? Is it a yes or a no? Thank you.

Pillsbury's number is (800) 767-4466. They had a gluten free list, but they don't plan on updating it. You're supposed to call with specific product questions. Hope that helps.

There may be more, but for these I know that they are gluten and dairy free.

Pillsbury "Creamy Supreme" Frosting

Vanilla - UPC: 51500 76080

Chocolate - UPC: 51500-76050

Pillsbury tells me that they are gluten and dairy free. I cannot recall if they are on dedicated lines or not, but for such a common flavor sold all over the USA I can't imagine they wouldn't have dedicated lines...but check it out for yourself!! 1-800-767-4466

My sons and I have not yet had a reaction to these and we've been eating them for about 6 months now! (I hope I didn't just jinx myself!)

I called them on Monday and they informed me that right now they do not have any ingredients for their "natural and artificial flavorings". They stated that they would onlly have to list wheat and there is no info for rye, barley and oats. I have always eaten it but someone told me that it wasn't gluten-free. Thanks.

I made a gluten-free vanilla cake last night and used Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Funfetti frosting thinking it was gluten-free. I woke up with very swollen eyelids this morning. So, I am guessing there was some gluten in the frosting. Does anyone know for sure? I tried to call the # on the label to find out but got a recording.

We've used the vanilla funfetti with no problems and the same for the plan vanilla. It's our go-to frosting.

Does Funfetti icing have sprinkles? Those are a potential problem, some sprinkles contain gluten.

Funfetti Frosting Ingredients

Frosting: Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Soybean, Cottonseed)Water, Corn Syrup, Corn Starch, Salt, Monoglycerides, Artificial Flavor, Colored with Artificial Color, Yellow No. 5, Red No. 40)Modified Corn Starch, Polysorbate 60, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative)Soy Lecithin, Citric Acid.

Candy Bits: Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Soybean, Cottonseed)Corn Starch, Confectioners Shellac, Modified Corn Starch, Colored with Yellow No. 5, Red No. 40, Blue No. 1, Yellow No. 6)

There's NOTHING in here that screams gluten and my very sensitive Celiac daughter eats this frosting like, um, well, candy.

If you have issues with soy or coloring agents, I can see how it would be problematic, but there are no gluten ingredients in this product.

PILLSBURY CONFETTI FUNFETTI IS NOT GLUTEN FREE!

My daughter and I both have celiac. I made a gluten free cake and used Pillsbury's Vanilla Confetti Funfetti frosting. She was asleep when it was ready so my husband and I each had a piece before her- luckily! It made me VERY sick.

I figured that it must have been the sprinkles since we have eaten Pillsbury frosting before with no problem. So when my daughter was disappointed that we couldn't eat the cake, we had some of the PLAIN frosting that hadn't been used. It made us BOTH sick! Usually my daughter is VERY insensitive to gluten whereas I can tell very quickly if I have eaten some.

Do not use this frosting!

The frosting looks absolutely gluten-free. I have never ever seen gluten in artificial flavors and there are no natural flavors in the ingredients.

If you want ready made frosting and are leery of the Pillsbury just go with Duncan Hines. Their gluten-free frostings are labeled gluten free on the container.

Please be careful when you post things like this on here. Just because you reacted from it, doesn't mean that it was because of gluten. I'm not saying that this particular frosting is or isn't gluten free, because while nothing in the ingrediants screams gluten, I haven't checked with the company but I don't know for a fact the status. Just be careful that you're not spreading false information just because you had a negative experience, I love to hear about everyone's experiences but this disease is too difficult to not have all the facts!

I just called Pillsbury, with the number locted on the back of the frosting container. The lady was extremely nice and understood my concerns. I gve her the barcode of the frosting container so she could make sure she had the exact type of frosting. She was then able to look up exactly what is in the frosting and the sprinkles. The frosting has no gluten or traces of gluten. She was not just looking for wheat, as she listed out other forms of gluten as well. However, the funfetti sprinkles that are in a seperate container on the lid may have gluten in them. So if you use this frosting...the frosting is gluten free but the sprinkles may contain gluten. Also, she stated that Pillsbury just came out with gluten free frosting that will state "gluten free".

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      So interesting!  Please keep us posted!  
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Here is a link that will tell you what each of the major celiac disease centers recommend. I reference this site because the woman writing it is a doctor herself who has celiac disease and is also a member of this site. She's done the research for us & put it all together in one post: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2014/07/06/hope-for-a-less-challenging-gluten-challenge/
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Thanks for the input! cyclinglady - I've been trying not to be mad at my GP for ruling out Celiac at a time when I didn't know any better, but now I'm PO'd! Going back on gluten is going to suck. I was accidentally exposed last week, and I didn't go to the bathroom for two days, had my first headache in months, and wanted to sleep all day. Eight to 12 weeks sounds awful! I wish she would have done that test when she was taking blood by the pint for all sorts of stuff I didn't have. Blerg. ravenu5 - Thanks for sharing about your constipation. I didn't know how normal it was to not have diarrhea. But my constipation was also basically untreatable by normal means. I used to laugh when people suggested prunes. I could have probably eaten them by the bucket (though the most I ever tried at once was a dozen or so). I was so shocked when I started going to the bathroom regularly after eliminating gluten. The last time going to the bathroom wasn't an issue for me was when I was a kid! Gemini - It's nice to hear from someone else with Sjogren's! I haven't met anyone else in real life with Sjogren's, and I've never posted on a forum before. And thank you for being sorry about my miscarriage. It super-duper sucked. The miscarriage drove me to a third rheumatologist because I felt like I needed to know what was wrong with me. With two healthy, full-term pregnancies in the last five years and no history of problems, my risk of miscarriage was low, and I felt like the timing (all these new symptoms and the miscarriage) probably wasn't a coincidence. (But my kids have been a huge comfort. My youngest turned a year old the day after the miscarriage, and I feel so terrible for anyone who has to go through a miscarriage without a baby to cuddle. I don't know how it's done!) The first two rheumatologists I went to after my positive ANA and SSA said I didn't have Sjogren's! (Is there a space on this forum for doctor rants?) Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing with me. It's really nice to hear other voices on these things.  
    • blistex etc
      I use Blistex and I can tell you it's gluten free. I happen to use this one because I'm sensitive to sunscreen plus I just like a simple product without a lot of crud in it. http://www.blistex.com/products/simple-and-sensitive/ BTW, here's a reference from Jan. 2014 where Blistex responded: Blistex:  This company got back to me on January 31st, 2014.  They said “…all of our Blistex lip care products are gluten-free; meaning that they are free from wheat, rye, barley, and oats.” Here's a link to the site which reported this. They list numerous other lip products as well. http://www.thesavvyceliac.com/2014/01/30/gluten-free-lip-balm-mission-impossible/
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      I was recommended to take at least 10g of gluten daily prior to the endoscopy.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
