I don't know what sour patch kids are, but sugar itself shouldn't have gluten issues. Domino is gluten-free. I suspect it's something else in there if it's a processed candy. Good luck. Hopefully others will post.

If sugar bothers you, you may have a Candida yeast overgrowth. Candida feeds on sugar, and causes a host of physical symptoms. There is a home test that you can do, called the saliva test. Search under "Candida saliva test" or "Candida spit test. That should tell you how to do it. If you do have it, the best product out there to get rid of Candida is called Threelac. It's expensive, but it works very well. It could just be that sour patch kids are not gluten-free, but that I don't know. Good luck.

Do Sour Patch Kids contain gluten?
No, Sour Patch Kids do not contain gluten. Manufacturing lines and ingredients may change from time to time. As such, it is recommended that you carefully review the product packaging for ingredient declarations prior to each use.

from Schweppes FAQ page.

I guess those little sour patch kids are on a gluten-free diet :P

Oh man, I was wondering the same thing!


I've had a sugar obsession as of late and all my favorite candies have been making me miserable every time: swedish fish, sour patch, gummy worms, all of it. I got to thinking sugar was gluteny too...

That Candida business is scaring me. I can't tell if I'm a hypochondriac or if I've really got multiple issues.

sugar doesn't give me gastro problems as long as there is no gluten in it, however I DO have a serious problem with sugar. Whenever I eat sugar, even if it isn't very much, I become depressed the next day. The more I have, the worse the depression is. It's terrible! Even before I discovered my gluten intolerance I knew that sugar negatively effected me and I try to avoid it at all costs!

I'm not sure about the situation in North America, but here in Ireland jelly sweets (candy)
can be dusted with flour to stop them sticking together.
In most cases they use cornflour (starch) but a few use wheat flour!

Even if cornflour is used, and it was milled alongside cereal crops there could be cross-contamination, so accordingly we are all very careful.

Also Coeliac (celiac) Disease is linked to Type 1 Diabetes.

In general sugar is a horrible thing to ingest. As a human, it's impossible to avoid or not have a craving for it. I react similarly to you. yesterday I ate a bag of swedish fish and a half hour later i was irritated, tired, achy and thirsty. I'm not sure if it would be a candida problem but it's definitely sugar related. This is a link to what sugar does to your body (and it'll make you want to avoid sugar altogether!):

I have terrible problems when I injest sugar. Some digestive problems, but mainly problems with my moods and emotions. I actually have these problems when I take in too much of anything sweet. I avoid honey, cane sugar, maple syrup, fruit juices, or any other concentrated form of sugar. I feel so much better both physically and emotionally when I eat this way.

If you have candida and don't get rid of it, you'll never get better. It's definitely worth checking out. Just a side note, Threelac works well for many people, but it made me worse. Not really sure why.
