I bought Betty Crocker's decorator candy sprinkles, and I need to know if they're gluten-free. The ingredients are: sugar, cornstarch, confectioner's glaze, red 3, yellow 5, blue 1, yellow 6, red 40, and carnuba wax.

It looks pretty safe to me, but I'm wondering about food colorings. Aren't they usually made with alcohol? And can't alcohol be a grain alcohol?

I believe that is a Signature Brands product, and if so, they told me that any gluten source would be clearly labeled on the ingredients listing. I uses some of the Betty Crocker colored sugar sprinkles on the sugar cookies I made last night.

That's exactly the product I'm using. Thanks a bunch for the quick reply. Now I can add candy sprinkles to my chocolate-covered ener-G gluten-free pretzels... an awesome treat for the holidays! (I'm dipping the pretzels in Hershey's milk chocolate.)
