I think Jello is safe but is Jello brand pudding safe? Anyone know?

Amy--It's not on my gluten-free list, but all Hunt's Snack Packs are. So are Kozy Shack Rice, Tapioca, Choc, Vanilla, Banana and Flan. Do yourself a favor and check out:

It listed these items and 49 pages of other gluten-free mainstream foods. I don't go to the food store without it!

Jello Instant Pudding is safe; also, since it is a Kraft product, I read that all Kraft products will specify on the ingredients lable if a wheat product is used. I haven't checked the non-instant varieties but I know the instant mix is okay, although the buttterscotch flavor does list caramel color and doesn't state whether it is from barley or not. Will Kraft also specify foods that have barley ingredients in them or only wheat?

I don't know why Jello Instant Pudding didn't show up on my gluten-free list--it's that 49 page one--but I "googled" it and yup it is gluten-free. Don't know about the caramel color though, catfish, good point! Nothing came up on google for the butterscotch. Can't pass that new labeling law fast enough to suit me.

Just because a label will list a wheat ingredient doesn't mean it will list barley. Make sure you read the labels. I am trying to remember which kind of instant pudding I eat, but the brand slips my mind. I buy it at Wal Mart, it is a mainstream item, but I just can't think of the brand!

Even of Kraft products you need to read the labeling...they won't write in bold letters on the front of the container: DOES NOT CONTAIN WHEAT. However, flavorings are usually questionable as to being gluten-free or not and you need to call the company. With Kraft however, all flavorings and colorings are gluten-free unless they specifically write (in parens. next to it) wheat, or some other gluten-containing ingredient...in that way you should be able to tell if a product is gluten-free right from the label. At least, that's what I was told when I called about Crystal Light (drink mix) a week ago. By the way, it is gluten-free.

P.S. the barley is a good point...I'm not sure about it, but I believe the person said that it'll list the gluten-containing ingredient in parens next to it...then again, going by the labels isn't a good idea to begin with: labels are subject to change whenever the manufacturers feel like it -- and because it is "too expensive" to throw out printed labels, manufacturers are allowed to "run out" their labels, thereby leading us to believe that a product is gluten-free, although it may not be. Always be careful.

P.S.P.S. I have also heard that Kozy Shack is gluten-free...although I am going to stay dairy-limited until my symptoms completely go away so I haven't investigated yet. I remember eating Kozy Shack chocolate pudding before the gluten-free diet...it's delicious.... :)

Kozy Shack even lists on the package that it is gluten free. We tried some the other day, but the dairy caused a lot of my symptoms to return, so I think 6 months off dairy wasn't enough. celiac3270 you are smart to stay off dairy. I'm back to dairy free and was wondering about Jello pudding and if it possible to make it with any milk alternatives. It probably wouldn't taste the same. <_<

God bless,

Folks the Kraft page about gluten (I don't have the exact address; you'd have to go to kraft.com and search around) says they will clearly list any gluten, not just wheat. So if it had barley, which is very rare in itself, it would say so.

Mariann,

I just made a box of the pudding with soy milk because my 6 month old cant have cows milk yet. Well it never harden. Its still liquid in my fridge. Too bad he cant use a straw yet. lol I have alot of goats milk too, after I try making it with that I will let you know how it works.

I can't use Soymilk anyhow, but it is good to know that it won't set. I don't want to use the almond milk we drink for pudding, since it does have a strong almond taste and the kids don't want the pudding to taste like almonds. I thought I might try Mocha Mix. I make a milk alternative for baking and such with it at a mix of 1/4 Mocha Mix and 3/4 water. It does have a bit of a chemical taste that you have to get used to, but once you get past that it isn't bad. :rolleyes: We use the Mocha Mix Ice Cream and I sort of figured it would taste a bit like that...

Anyone tried pudding made with rice milk??

God bless,

Mariann

I don't know about other brands, but I have found that Jello brand instant pudding (not the kind that needs to cook, I haven't tried that) will set even with plain water although it tastes a little bit flat. Also, the mix has no milk in it. I imagine almond milk would work just fine with it.

    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
