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® 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 Mrs. Butterworth¿s, Swanson®
frozen foods and Open Pit® barbecue sauces) generally contain
wheat-based
ingredients in the form of modified food starches and other thickening
agents.

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.

Sincerely,


Robin Diamond

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!!

Wow! That's good to know ... I can't imagine adding wheat, or starch of any kind to a syrup ... Strange. Oh well, I haven't used it, but will remember if anyone else puts it on the table!

Thanks for that!!
