Vanilla

4 posts in this topic

:D Are people with celiac disease allowed to eat anything flavored w/vanilla? I was recently diagnosed w/celiac disease, and on one of the papers the dr gave me, vanilla is listed under the "aviod" colomn. Please let me know.

**also - I've been looking for a simple gluten-free brands food list. I've checked out some of the ones mentioned on previous posts. Isn't there one certain place that has one thats pretty up to date (and gets updated each year)? Or is that alot to ask for?

Thank you!

I've been gluten-free almost three years and have discovered during that time that vanilla just is not something to be worried about.

Updating a list once a year isn't enough. Probably the most up-to-date list is the one from Clan Thompson but you have to pay for it. The best way to do it is to simply call the companies yourself. If you have a cell phone, call from the store if you're not sure about a product (most have an 800 number on them)

It does get easier. I don't even carry a list with me any more when I go shopping.

old lists say to avoid vanilla, because they're usually referring to vanilla extract, which is often in an alcohol base. it used to be thought that alcohol had gluten (if the alcohol was produced by a grain we can't have), but more thorough research has noted that the gluten proteins are far too heavy to make it through the distillation process. so vanilla is ok. it's always best to check with the company (I can't reiterate that enough) because it's not impossible for a company to decide to use wheat or some other product derived from a forbidden grain as a carrier for some flavors. That's very unlikely, of course, and I don't know of it happening (outside of seasoning packages) yet.
