Breyers Ice Cream
0

19 posts in this topic

Last night i ate some breyers - all natural , lactose free vanilla ice cream. I put a little strawberry jam in it for some flavor. Almost instantly after finishing it my stomach acted up. The pain was horrible.

Now it is supposed to be gluten free-- Is there a chance it had some in it anyway?>

Any time you eat any processed food there's a chance gluten slipped in, but I would think with the vanilla ice cream the chances would be very slim. Any chance there were bread crumbs in the jam?

Breyers makes lactose free ice cream? :o:lol: Yay!

Perhaps you are sensitive to casein as well as lactose? Or it could very well be the bread crumbs as Lovegrov suggested.

I had written to Breyers this week, I thought I would share their response. -Jessica :rolleyes:

Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your recent inquiry about gluten in Good Humor-Breyers products.

We currently do not have a gluten list, and are recommending consumers read the

ingredient label on our cartons.  If wheat, barley, or rye were used in a

product, it would be clearly listed.  The flavorings may contain ethyl alcohol.

However, we cannot guarantee from which grain the alcohol was derived.

Because the alcohol used in our products is distilled, there are no proteins

present and would not pose a threat to anyone who is gluten intolerant.

Thank you.

This is just a theory, but perhaps the lactose free variety is not gluten-free? I had read somewhere to be very careful of the sugar-free, low-fat or otherwise different varieties of safe foods because their formulations are completely different. I know that the regular Breyer's full-fat stuff is gluten-free because I have eaten them (and the label is VERY simple on those - no big words!) but not so sure about the "altered" ones.

Cass, if you're going to try to convince us that beef and milk are causing brittle bones, I think you need a better source that The Truth Seeker. I mean there's some flat-out nutty, tinfoil hat stuff there. Israel was founded not as a Jewish state but as an occult state? It wasn't a plane that hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11?

Is Earth still round or is it flat again?

Gimme a break.

Hum, is that something like the Weekly World News? :rolleyes:

BTW, that article comes from PETA, not quite an unbiased source

celiacs already have largely restricted diets/more expensive diets than most.

I think the person who posted the anti dairy anti meat statement may be a "troll"...look at the date they signed up..one day prior to posting. Someone's on a mission, me thinks.

BUT....also, I'm not so sure I'd take a doctors advice as gospel either. Look at how long it's taking the medical profession to understand gluten intolerance. They also USED to claim that calcium based kidney stones were from eating too much dairy when in fact it's just the opposite.

I take everything under advisement and do my own research to come to my own conclusions. Sometimes they coincide with the docs...sometimes they don't.

-------

Back to the main question regarding the ice cream. I'd be inclined to think that perhaps the contamination came from the jam as well. I've never had trouble with Breyers ice cream.... Sometimes when I eat something for the first time, I have an adverse reaction to it as well.....Along with being lactose free, it wasn't sugar free by chance was it?

I just want to say that Milk is the number 1 helping cause for ousteoperiosis.

After I replied I realized this was probably a troll. Just what we need.

Somebody who goes to forums and writes inflammatory posts to stir up trouble. On political web sites conservatives will troll liberal sites and vice versa trying to sow dissension or just make the site look dumb. This troll might or might not actually have celiac but apparently DOES have some sort of dietary agenda.

Oh, thanks. I am pretty sure I know what "agenda" they have. It is pretty sad to do that here, people who have a serious illness and need support.

I agree! This person is on just about every thread preaching a ridiculous "eat hardly anything" diet to people who are looking for positive ways to deal with a difficult disease. I've never heard of a Troll before, but it makes perfect sense...and gets on my nerves!

Back to the original thread ...

I too have had an awfull belly almost immediatley with breyers ice cream but only when I had it on an empty stomach. When I've had a small serving as a dessert, I have had no problem. Unusally have about a 1/3 cup serving as not to push the issue and that helps me.

Notice that said person posted 16 times in one day and hasn't returned. Troll.

Yes, I figured that she had an agenda now that she's avoided posting. Oh well, we don't need four-letter-word people on this message board! The community is perfect the way it is :)

I bet she didn't really have Celiac anyway.

Beat the Wheat (barley, rye, oats and malt),

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
