Vanillin

7 posts in this topic

i have noticed vanillin being on some gluten-free lists but i have also seen it on NOT safe lists. hershey's syrup is on the gluten free list and does have vanillin so i'm thinking it may be ok? i love chocholate and a lot of it has vanillin so i really need to find out for sure if it is gluten-free.

Vanillin is a by-product of the paper making industry. Yes, that's right, paper. Pretty wierd, huh? They used to just dump it until they noticed it had a negative effect on the ecology, and then someone brilliant found that by tweaking it slightly chemically it could be made into a valuable commodity. Vanillin occurs naturally in vanilla and is the most notable flavor of over 400 that comprise the vanilla profile. Pure vanillin should be gluten free, but if it is in an alcohol solution there is a chance that it is a grain alcohol which could theoretically have gluten in it. The chances are slim, and if there was any it would be a very small amount, but when in doubt it is probably best to contact the manufacturer.

Never found vanillin with gluten. I'ts not an ingredient I question any more. Hershey clearly lists gluten in the ingredients.

This site http://www.enabling.org/ia/celiac/gfdiet.html says that vanillin *could* contain gluten if it's made from a grain-based alcohol. Is this like all grain-based alcohols; if it's distilled it's most likely ok, but very, very sensitive celiacs may react?

This list has tons and tons of old information. For instance (just one), tuna with vegetable broth is without exception all gluten-free. Never found one that isn't. It's simply made from vegetables (and sometimes rosemary).

Vanillin is unquestionably gluten-free.
