I called Dannon, and they said, only their plain yogurt was gluten free. I stick with Yoplait!

I contacted them in December about their Activia -- and here is their response:

Dannon yogurt products are characterized as either gluten safe or not gluten safe.
Our Dannon Plain Lowfat, Plain Nonfat and Plain Natural are all gluten safe. Plain DanActive (formerly called Original DanActive) is also gluten safe.

All other Dannon yogurts and yogurt drinks cannot be designated as gluten safe because the natural flavor systems used might have ingredients added to stabilize the flavor that may be derived from gluten sources. These products are not specifically formulated to contain gluten (except for the Light & Fit Crave Control yogurt noted below) but we cannot guarantee that the alcohol portion of the natural flavor system is always derived from corn and not from wheat, oats, rye and barley. We recommend you consult your allergist on the incidence of gluten proteins in ethanol derived from grains.

Additionally, we now produce Light & Fit Crave Control yogurt, a product which contains wheat. In fact you will find that we have labeled both the overwrap and foil of these products with the following: "Contains milk and wheat."

Dear mandasmom,
I know that only Dannon's plain yogurts are safe. No others are. That explains why I always got so sick from them! Yoplait is safe for the most part, because they clearly label gluten if it is present. My favorite is the Whips in Coffee Latte! Also, they are kosher as far as I know!
Sincerely,

:angry: DANNON YOGURT IS NOT GLUTEN-FREE!!!!!!!! Just a subtle warning. This is one of those cases where reading the label isn't enough. The natural flavors clause in their case often includes gluten containing "stabilizers" in their fruit on the bottom varieties. Please note ONLY THE LOW-FAT and WHOLE MILK PLAIN ARE GLUTEN-FREE. Subtle...I know, but effective. Unfortunately I was gluten'ed half to death while on vacation. I wasn't sure what is was, so I increased my yogurt and fruit consumption. WHAM...worsening symptoms. After contacting Dannon, they indicated only the plain varities are "gluten-safe". Ouch! Took me a week to recover fully.

Anyway, I hope this helps. If you haven't already, get the CSA book. We lovingly call it the big-book-of-everything in our house. A real lifesaver (and NO, I don't have any affiliation with the CSA).

That's good to know!! I thought only Brown Cow was gluten-free and that brand is hard to find in my area. Before going gluten-free, I loved the Yoplait whips!! Yippee!! I can have some yogurt now!!
