Pancake Syrups

8 posts in this topic

Right before our household had gone gluten free, I had purchased two huge jugs of Mrs. Butterworth's syrup at Sam's Club. I have tried to no avail to find out if is gluten-free, but everything I come up with online is old information. And there's no 800 number on the jug, it say's to write to the company. Does anyone out there know if it is gluten-free and if not, then what kind of inexpensive syrup in the grocery store is gluten-free?? Thanks in advance for any help!!

Off hand I can't say about Mrs. Butterworth, but all Aunt Jemima's are gluten free, as well as Maple

Grove pure maple syrup.

In several years of checking, I haven't come across a syrup that isn't gluten free. When we make syrup here, it's just berries cooked down and then squeezed through a jelly bag, add sugar and then boiled until it thickens a bit.

Having said that, I haven't checked Mrs Butterworths in the last year or so. It used to be gluten free, at least here in Canada.

I wish I could be of more help but I use the Wegmans brand buttery syrup, which has the gluten free "G" on it. I also use homemade maple syrup which my little Leah's family makes every year.

.... two huge jugs of Mrs. Butterworth's syrup ... Does anyone out there know if it is gluten-free and if not, then what kind of inexpensive syrup in the grocery store is gluten-free??

I don't know about that, but I do have a couple kinds of syrup (besides real maple syrup) here.

One, Great Value (walmart) natural & artificial Butter flavored pancake & waffle syrup. Personally, I don't like it, and don't eat it. I only have it because my son doesn't like mine, he likes butter flavored, and said he didn't like Mrs. Buttersworth. Anyways, it doesn't list any wheat ingredients (although it does have caramel coloring, which some people seem to be worried about). It does say: Allergy warning - manufactured in a facility that processes milk, wheat, soybeans.

My favorite syrup is Griffin's Original Syrup (not Griffin's pancake & waffle syrup). It's the only syrup that doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup (talking about regular syrups, not health food store brands or real maple syrup). I've never liked HFCS, not for any health reasons, but because it gives a "flat" taste to products when used instead of good old fashioned sugar. All the reasons for using HFCS are for the benifits of the manufacturers, processers, corn growers, lobbyists, and politicians. There are no benifits for us, the consumers, in either taste or costs (we could get cheap sugar without high tarriffs or the Cuban embargo). Funny how politics and agriculture have always been symbiotic. Don't get me started.

best regards, lm

As of a couple of months ago when I checked Mrs. Buttersworth is NOT gluten free!!! I was very disapointed as this has been our favorite syrup for years. The one that did find that was gluten free is Log Cabin.

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

Thank you all so much for your help. I'm disappointed, but I guess I'll have to donate my Mrs. Butterworth's to some big family!!

    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
