Mono Diglycerides
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi

My daughter has been diasnosed 1 month ago. She is 12. Does anyone have the skinny on mono-diglycerides. I'm asking every where we go "do you know the ingredients in this or that are?. I always get a blank look and then they go ask the manager. Every time I ask about ice cream whether it be Brighams or Friendly's this is an ingredient. I'm guessing not good. She loves soft serve and I read Dairy Queen is OK. Any info is apppreciated.

Thanks

MDixon

Here is a link to a site .http://www.enabling.org/ia/celiac/monodiglycerides.html that answers your question. Mono diglycerides are fats that improve the consistency and give body to food like ice cream. They do have carriers (help in the process) in small amounts that up until 1996 didn't need to be listed on their labels and wheat is one of those. They are now required to list the carrier if it is wheat. They are not required to list any other gluten containing product used as a carrier. While it doesn't say so in this article, I think that wheat would be the most common carrier used as it is probably the most cost effective.

This should not be a concern in ice cream. If you contact Friendly's, they have a list of their gluten-free ice creams. Breyers and Blue Bunny clearly list any gluten. Baskin Robbins clearly lists wheat. Edy's and Turkeyhill have gluten-free lists.

I don't eat ice cream without checking (with the exception of vanilla, never have seen a vanilla ice cream with gluten), but for the vast majority of brands, ice cream is gluten-free unless it contains something obvious like cookies, cookie dough, or cake. And sometimes fudge flavors can be a problem for some reason.

More gluten-free icecream:

Haagen Dasz -- most flavors are gluten-free (strawberry, chocolate, vanilla....stick with the basics to be safe)...of course, cookie dough isn't gluten-free...etc.

Soy Delicious -- I'm trying to keep my dairy limited....if you're avoiding lactose/dairy, Soy Delicious has a neapolitin that's gluten-free....that's the only flavor that I've seen in stores....it might be hard to find if you don't have many large supermarkets around you.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      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.
