Pillsbury is okay. Betty Crocker is not for sure. Duncan Hines I used to buy but once I found wheat listed in the ingredients so I just didn't bother anylonger. The labels are pretty clear on icings....

I just used Duncan Hines Milk Chocolate frosting and had no problems with it at all.

I use Pillsbury. Duncan Hines used to be ok, but I believe they added malt to it several months back.

I spoke to someone at Duncan Hines very recently and they told me that their frosting is definitely not gluten-free.

Duncan Hines def. is NOT gluten free!!! I got ths reply back from them today. I also got a phone call back from Pillsbury and they said that all of their frostings are gluten free except for Coconut, and Pecan.
Thank you for taking the time to inquire about Pinnacle Foods Corporation
and the products we produce which might be gluten-free. We appreciate
your interest in our company and our products.

At the present time, Vlasic® Pickles, Sauerkraut and Peppers and Log
Cabin® Country Kitchen syrup are gluten-free. The vinegar used in
production of these items is corn-based, rather than wheat-based. Other
items in our product lines (which include Swanson® frozen foods and Open
Pit® barbecue sauces) generally contain wheat-based ingredients in the
form of modified food starches and other thickening agents. The Duncan
Hines Frostings are not gluten free

While our manufacturing facilities follow generally accepted good
manufacturing practices, we do not have the flexibility of segregating
production lines for the exclusive production of wheat-free items. We
recommend that you review the list of ingredients on the package prior to
purchase to assure that you are meeting your specific dietary needs. Since
we are constantly improving our products, ingredients may change from time
to time.

We appreciate the time you've taken to share your specific concerns with
us, because it helps us to become aware of consumer needs. We hope you
find this information helpful.
