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),

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
