Schwans Foods

11 posts in this topic

I wanted to try Schwans Foods because we are moving deeper into the country and further from supermarkets and these people deliver. I just wondered if anyone has used their foods? I did go on their web site, they don't have a gluten-free list but you can read the labels. Has anyone experienced any cross contamination? I appreciate your input.

I use their asparagus spears, the broccoli-cauliflower-carrot mix, and I have tried the tamales which do not seem to bother me, but please be careful with them. The vegtables are very good. I haven't tried too many of their other items though. Good luck.

Judy05,

I called Schwan's headquarters after I was diagnosed to ask about their modified food starch and they stated it is from corn. So far I haven't had any trouble with CC, but I am still new and feeling icky some days (been on the diet for 2 1/2 months and got glutened for sure once). Thankfully most of their ice cream is gluten free - other than the brownie and confetti cake. :)

I have found a great replacement for the confetti cake - it is a Dryers light slow churned special edition (edys in some places). It is an American Idol flavor (you vote for your favorite) and it is called Take the Cake. It's cake flavored ice cream with frosting and sprinkles and it is not only light but AMAZING! I was so excited - if you look on the website and look up the flavor under ingrediants it actually says gluten free. My whole non gluten-free, non dieting family loves and that is too bad for me!

Schwans is still around? They used to be here in Manitoba, but I believe they got bought out I think almost 8 years ago. From what I remember is their food was delious. The vanilla ice cream is the best ice cream I have ever tasted. What part of the continent are they still in?

I know this most likely is a dead topic.

But.......

I order from Schwans all the time. They do not have a Gluten Free list, but will let you know about any product. Just call them and tell they that you are asking about the possible gluten in a product. They will have to transfer you to a "product specialist," I think they are called. They have me marked as someone that has called before and they aways seem to know why I am calling.

About the ice cream. When I called about it, they told me that ALL the ice cream is made in the place. That cross contamination is a big problem. They recommended that I do not eat any of the ice cream.

You can read ingredients on line. I don't think they make any gluten-free claims.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
