OH NO!!!!!!!!! TCBY is/was my FAVORITE. I have been eating it all the time since going gluten-free and have not had a problem at all. I am pretty sure I have silent celiac since I don't have many symptoms but I thought all the ingredients were okay. Should I stop eating it? I am so upset right now. Oh no. Someone please tell me I don't have to stop eating it??? :(

I had the exact same reaction after receiving the same email from TCBY. I emailed back for more information and was given the Chemists phone number. His name is Craig Bennett, 1 800 343 5377 ext 8904. He called me back and we talked about his quest for getting complete information from his suppliers on their products. I do not have anything in writing and do not want to miss state what he told me, so I am passing on his phone number so you can call him yourself. I did leave another message today asking for written information to pass on. Good Luck!

I received a call from TCBY's Chemist Craig Bennet yesterday. He said the TCBY website should be updated with new ingrediant information by the end of next week. It is good news!

So, I just got an email from TCBY. I had sent them an email directly through their webiste. Here is the response that I got:

Thank you for your recent email message. The only TCBY soft-serve frozen yogurt flavors that specifically contain wheat, oats, barley, or ryie in the ingredients are as follows: Cheesecake, Chocolate malt, and Cookies and Cream.

The majority of our Mrs. Fields Ice Cream flavors are not gluten-free. The flavors that DO NOT contain gluten are: Chocolate Chocolate, Chunky Chocolate Mint, Dulce De Leche, Rocky Road Rapture, Peanut Butter Cup, Toffee Coffee Crunch, and Vanilla Bean.

The maltodextrin flavoring in all our notfat/no-sugar-added flavors is derived from corn. Therefore, these contain no gluten.

The alcohol extracts in the flavorings are derived from a grain source, but the following flavors have no added extracts: Chocolate Frozen Yogurt, Coffee Frozen Yogurt, Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt, Dutch Chocolate Nonfat Frozen Yogurt, and Chocolate Nonfat/No-sugar-added frozen yogurt. All other frozen yogurt flavors do contain alcohol extracts.

All sorbet flavors contain as an ingredient "natural flavors" that may be derived from a grain source. Therefore, we are not able to guarantee that these are gluten-free.

Other items: sprinkles, many candies, cookies, cak and pie crust all contain gluten. Fruits and hot toppings do not contain gluten. All ice cream cones contain gluten.

As a suggestion for a special occasion treat for someone with gluten intolerance, you can order a pie with no crust (prepared directly in an aluminum pie plate), and have the employee assisting you smooth a topping on it and decorate it like they would a regular cake order.

Thank you for contacting Mrs. Fields Famous Brands on-line. If you need any other information, please let me know.

Isn't that great????? I was so excited. She seems very knowledgable on gluten intolerance. I have never had a problem eating the yogurt and they are very accomodating. They even get me my topping straight from the container so as not to use the potentially contaminated scoopers. :D

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      BTW, all first degree relatives of celiacs are supposed to be tested for celiac every 2 years in the absence of symptoms -- immediately if symptoms present. Your kids, your parents & all siblings should be tested. And that goes for your brothers kids too.
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.

      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.
