Ruth,
I simply e-mailed all these companies cause I had a lot of time on my hands with a computer and nothing else to do :D . I tried to think of a lot of companies that I could e-mail. I do not eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream, although I have had Haagen Dazs. The doctor is focusing on a few things that he thinks could be causing my problems. Actually, I should probably be a little more strict or observant with dairy consumption and symptoms.

Actually, I've heard a bit more from my doctor, so I'll fill everybody in. Okay, first off, as you all know by now, I've still been having symptom troubles.....and my GI was terrific in diagnosing, but utterly useless with the post-diagnosis stage of celiac. So I recently switched doctors to a celiac specialist. He has been great. Now, these were a few possibilities:

- Cyclic Vomiting: a migraine-related thing that manifests itself in vomiting--I'm not sure about the abdominal pains. One thing that makes him think that is that my pediatrician thought I had that when I had stomach troubles...he might have been right...additionally, I used to; not so much anymore, see spots, kinda, when I was sick -- as sign of cyclic. Anyway, if this is the case, there's nothing to do about it, but wait. You're supposed to outgrow it and if I had it, I should be outgrowing it already.

- Gallbladder: Karen mentioned the possiblity of something with my gallbladder. I mentioned that to him and he said that that would be quite a possibility. Then he asked if I had had a sonogram, which I had, and therefore, he said, it would've already been found.

- Ulcers: Just something I saw written all over, so I brought that up. He said that that is a possibility.....I don't know how you test that or how you treat it, so if someone could fill me in on that, it would be appreciated.

.........I don't remember everything, but I guess I just haven't been paying attention to the dairy since my focus is on acid and sugar. I think cutting out the ACID has helped tremendously....I just feel better than I did...I don't know if this is just in my head. BTW, I am to continue taking Prilosec OTC twice a day. That about brings us up to date :) . If my symptoms don't get better after....maybe a year, perhaps sooner, I think I'll start an elimination diet.....start off with veggies, meats, potato.....see how it goes.....then slowly incorporate a few items each week and if it gets bad, target individual items..............at this point I don't want to limit myself more than I have to.....if I lose my patience I'll try that.

Well, celiac3270, I'll help you out a little here. I emailed Carvel today, asking specifically which of their flavors are gluten-free and if you can special order their cakes w/o the chocolate "crunchies" in the center as those contain wheat. Here's what they said:
Thank you for your email. Most of our ice cream is gluten-free, except for those that contain brownie or cookie dough. You can only special order a cake through one of Carvel retail stores. I suggest calling them and ordering it in advance without the crunchies. I have listed below a list of our gluten-free ingredients.

Hey I wrote Old El paso and this is what they told me



Dear Ms. Allen:

Thank you for contacting Old El Paso regarding gluten in Old El Paso products.

It is our primary goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or other sources of gluten, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product’s ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

Celiac Sprue Association/United States of America, Inc.
PO Box 31700
Omaha, NE 68131-0700
402-558-0600

We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Thomas H. Batty

General Mills doesn't hide gluten. All Yoplait flavors are gluten-free, but they do have some that comes with a separate package of granola. Don't use the granola.

oooh.......really Richard? I read in some sample of Clan Thompson's that the custard-style was gluten-free.........i didn't see anything else, but it never said that other flavors weren't gluten-free........thanks.

Lyndsey,
I couldn't contact the entire company Mars via e-mail, but rather, just Milkyway or M&Ms separately on their respective sites. M&Ms are gluten-free (peanut, regular, etc.), except for the crispy kind (blue packaging). Milkyways are not gluten-free except for the Milky Way midnight. I don't have the official lists w/ me......I'm not posting from home and aol.com doesn't always let me into my mailbox due to # of messages..............annoying. Anyway, when I get home, I'll post it.

Thank you for taking the time to contact our company regarding Yoplait Products.

At this time, we do not have a comprehensive list of our products.� We will be happy to share your comments with the appropriate personnel.

We appreciate your interest.

Sincerely,

Yoplait wasn't too helpful via e-mail.......I believe you, Richard, but I'll just call them to make sure that they haven't changed anything since you checked.



Thank you for contacting the General Mills Consumer Services Department.� The information you requested is available on our web site at www.generalmills.com.� On the home page click on "Brands". We hope you enjoy the site, and please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Here are my two e-mail replies..........anyway, sounds like your representative was more helpful, Lyndsey....I had forgotten what Jack had said when I posted this morning :D . Ugg....nobody was particularly helpful via e-mail....whatever.

Hi again. celiac3270, if you ever do go on an elimination diet, perhaps consider eliminating potatoes and tomato family also. Peppers and eggplant are also in that family. Those are things that definitely give me problems, but they may not bother you since all our systems are different. Like snowflakes, each person is different. Just thought I'd mention that possibility. Know that would be hard to do. I miss them very much, but as I've said in a different post, I am using the Elaine Gott(?) SCD diet. Intend to follow through even if I get company again since this past week has been rough. I think it is starting to come around again. Ruth

Response from Edys ice cream.........

August 30, 2004

Dear celiac3270:

Thank you for your email requesting nutritional information on Edy's Grand
Ice Cream.  In an
increasingly health-conscious society, we are always happy to answer your
questions about our
products.

As a general rule, the gluten in any of our ice cream, frozen yogurt or
novelty products is present
only in added bakery products such as cookies or shortcake.  In most cases
the ice cream itself
contains no gluten.  The modified food starch that you may find listed in
the ingredients is
derived from a vegetable source and is, therefore, gluten-free.  In
addition, all of our Whole
Fruit-Fruit Bars are gluten-free.

A complete list of gluten free products is conveniently located on our
website.  Please log on to
www.edys.com, click on to Flavor Finder, click on to gluten free, and then
click on to the words
Find it.  We hope that this information will be helpful to you.  Please feel
free to call our toll-free
number should you need any further information.  Our representatives will be
happy to help you.

We value our consumers and hope you will continue to enjoy our products.
Please watch your
mail for money saving coupons from Edy's Grand Ice Cream.

Sincerely,

LuAnne Vecchione
Consumer Response Representative

I contacted Yoplait by e-mail because of the reply that celiac3270 got and I am a big user of their products. This is the reply I received today.
It is very different from the one celiac3270 got. I also suggested they put a notice somewhere on their website regarding gluten in their products
DK

Thank you for contacting Yoplait regarding gluten in Yoplait products.

At this time our yogurt is gluten free, but we believe it is always best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or other sources of gluten, then the product would be gluten-free.

celiac3270,
I am wondering if the names on the e-mails from Yoplait and General Mills are just assigned names used during an individual's workshift. That would explain the different replies we got. One person gave a pat answer with no research and the other person took the time to look for the correct answer.
You mentioned you may call them. If you did, I am curious to hear the response.
