I contacted the swedish fish company and they told me they were gluten free.. then i emailed back and asked about the artificial flavors and they said they do not contain wheat but they can't guarantee that they dont contain other sources of gluten such as barley, rye, .....SO Does anyone with gluten intolerance/celiac disease eat swedish fish? Do they affect you or are they safe?

I am sorry but I really don't know what Swedish fish are, I have never heard of them.

Are they a canned fish or are they a cracker?

They're like a gummy bear but they're shaped like fish, i've never had them, so i don't know.

I eat Sour Patch Kids (basically kid-shaped sour coated swedish fish) by the same company without any problems. I read somewhere that they are gluten-free. Most gummy things are.

I eat Swedish Fish all the time, haven't YET had a reaction to it, and I am a sensitive one!

They didn't tell me about the ingredients issue, but it sounds like a CYA statement to me. What company can guarantee their ingredients sourced from vendors 100%??????

My daughter and I eat them all the time with no problems. And she gets D if she gets a crumb of gluten!

I have had the sweedish berries, gummie bears, cherry blasters, and fuzzy peaches with no problems. I hope that they didn't change their ingredients!

Thank God I found this website. I've only been gluten free for 3 days and already I'm going crazy. After 23 years of being able to eat whatever I want a restriction on my "sweet tooth" is about to drive me nuts. I'm going to the store to get my Swedish Fish asap!

Swedish Fish are the only conventional candy I will allow myself to eat since discovering my Celiacs (and going Soy Free - I have a definite intolerance). I am also a Vegetarian, so the fact that they do not use gelatin in Swedish Fish is very important to me. I have never been affected by eating Swedish Fish, so for my system at least, which is hyper-sensitive to trace amounts, I believe that they are 'safe'! The company that makes Swedish Fish also makes a Sea Life mix that has different flavors (lemon, lime, etc) and I have had those candies and did not suffer any after-effects.

If you are looking for other candies to eat when you have a craving, Whole Foods has been selling gummy oranges, stars, and a couple of other items in their Bakery section lately. The stars are gelatin, soy, and wheat/gluten free! The ingredients are listed right on the label, so they may or may not be individually safe. I am inclined not to eat them if they come out of a gluten-filled bakery and are not in a bag (they keep them in big apothecary jars), but that's just me. Maybe I'll give it a go!

Best,

    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      after you get yourself squared away, these docs need reporting.  out right lying to you...
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry. 
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Alex the good news is you have found a great site with useful information and warm support! You need to work with your doctor to get a diagnosis but there are plenty here who have had similar experiences: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=panic%20attack so it sounds like your on the right lines   Take heart that you have probably found the cause now rather than later.  Follow CyclingLady's excellent advice above and go for celiac screening asap. For tests to work you need to be eating gluten for some time. That is a scary prospect when you've finally experienced some relief but it's for a limited time period, you can get support here along the way and if you choose to you can go gluten-free at the end and get relief whatever the results.  Once you're done testing and off the gluten you will be in a much better position to nail the lifestyle. That may mean some pre-planning, maybe taking a backpack with some gluten-free snacks with you, at least until you find the places you can reliably eat at. There are apps and sites that can help and probably local support groups in NYC as well: https://www.google.co.uk/?ion=1&espv=2#q=new%20york%20gluten%20free%20restaurants With research you'll also get to know what fast food options are viable, what readily available candy bars are ok etc. I can eat Mcdonalds fries for instance, which can come in handy if I'm away from my kitchen or supplies. Most starbucks or equivalents will have at least a gluten-free snack bar. So although a pain in the arse, it's doable and the health payoffs MORE than make up for the hassle.  Good luck! 
    • to biopsy or not?
      I ordered the cookbook the same day you recommended it.  I am SO excited!  I actually cried looking through the book!  I honestly don't believe I am good at all in the kitchen.  I am lucky enough to have a husband who cooks everything when he's home.  The only thing I felt skilled at in the kitchen was baking.  I made all of my kids' birthday cakes for the last 8 years.  I was sad thinking that we wouldn't have anything good for a birthday cake.  I mean, I've tried gluten free cake from a box, but it was just ok.  It wasn't amazing the way a homemade cake can be.  So now I have hope.  Hope that maybe my non-celiac kids will enjoy a birthday cake still.  My daughter (the most-likely-to-be-celiac one) never really ate birthday cake to begin with.   So this summer is her birthday and we will find out if it's good!  Thank you for the recommendation!!!   Janis
    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
